If you read my post on my very first Lip Lab experience, you’ll know how much I enjoy the whole process. Now it’s time to share my thoughts on the tired and tested products I got to create, starting with the creme lipstick I named ‘So Fetch’.
I wanted the perfect everyday-friendly pinky-nude colour that I just couldn’t get just right from any off-the-shelf brand. I showed my consultant Louise swatches of some of my other shades, and she noticed most of them were darker pinky-nudes (as most light ones on the market tend to wash me out). It was with this knowledge we were able to create my dream shade!
So Fetch is a light nude-pink colour with a neutral to cool undertone. The formula is a creme finish, meaning it’s got more staying power than a traditional lipstick, but isn’t totally matte like a liquid lipstick – it reminds me a bit of Urban Decay’s comfort mattes in their Vice lipstick range.
A ‘Pink Champagne’ scent was added to the lipstick at the final mixing stage, giving it a soft scent of champagne. If you don’t like fragranced makeup you might want to skip adding a scent, but I think it’s a nice touch, and this scent matches my personality perfectly.
The shape of the lipstick allows for easy application, and glides on nicely. It’s almost opaque in one swipe, but I like to apply a light second coat to really pack the colour on.
