MAKING MY OWN LIPSTICK

NEW YORK

Hands down one of the coolest things I did in NY was create my own custom lipstick at the Bite Beauty Lip Lab! At the tiny store in Soho, you sit down with an artist (like, artist artist, not makeup artist) and go through all the different options. Obviously, you can have whatever colour you like, but you can also choose the finish, the scent, and the packaging!

I described the coral kinda colour I was after and she literally made the perfect shade in a couple of minutes. We also tried another variation with more pink in and I loved them so much I decided to go with both. They are very similar colours but different enough to warrant getting both (or so I keep telling myself).

So after she mixed the perfect colours, it was time to make the lipstick. She popped bits of colour into a little container with the scents I'd chosen (combinations of vanilla, wild berry, & citrus mango) and mixed them in a centrifuge. She poured the mixture into the moulds and set them on this freezer tray thing to harden.

After popping them out of the moulds, they went into their containers and I chose two different lids. I spent about an hour there, it was ridiculously fun!
