We have all been there, haven’t we? Your favourite colour lipstick has been discontinued, or you have something with the PERFECT colour but you would really like it in a different finish? You can now have your own custom lipstick created at The Lip Lab!
I am still in search of the perfect 90s brown but I want a metallic, sparkly finish, and of all the lipsticks in the world, I still haven’t found THAT ONE.
I was invited by The Lip Lab and Westfield Miranda to have my own Fashionista in Suburbia shade created at their new store. After a consult, you can not only have your own colour mixed, but also choose the finish (matte, gloss, cream) and with added benefits of SPF, Lip plumper and fragrance.
The hardest thing is to explain what colour you want. “I want a pinky, reddy, nude, with mauvey undertones with a hint of orange” doesn’t cut it. I screen shotted photos, took some old lipsticks that weren’t quite right, and even brought an metallic brown eyeshadow that would be AMAZING on the lips! I think I made it pretty clear what I wanted. We tried a few different colours, and with some adjustments (more glitter more glitter!) we came to the final result.
And here it is: the original FiS (Fashionista in Suburbia) Colour: chocolate brown, with a hint of metallic and subtle (a little too subtle for my liking) glitter, and a lovely mint scent.
What do you think?
I was a guest of The Lip Lab and Westfield Miranda in NSW. They are located near Zara and Country Road. Prices start from $30 for a lipgloss and $55 for a lipstick. They also do gift vouchers for a fun pressie for your bestie.
