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 lipgloss I created!
I wanted a nice gloss to go with the two pink lipsticks I created, but also wanted it to be pigmented enough to be worn on its own. We came up with a rosy-pink shade called ‘Pink Moscato’ (adeptly named for my love of the drink!)
The gloss is packaged in a clear plastic rectangular tube with a matte black cap and The Lip Lab logo printed across the front of the clear tube.
On the bottom of the tube is the name of my creation, which is a really nice detail. Inside you get a slightly angled doe foot applicator, which makes the gloss easy to apply.
To create my perfect rosy gloss, my Lip Lab consultant added my choice of light pink, deep pink and champagne shimmer pigments to a clear gloss, mixing them up to get a beautiful rosy shade. I tested it on my lips to make sure I was happy with colour, and was automatically so impressed with how spot-on it was to the vision in my head.
This lipgloss is now my all-time favourite, beating my previous favourites: Metallic Rose and St Tropez from Anastasia Beverly Hills. And for only $4 more, I’m able to have a custom shade.
If you’re looking at trying out a customised makeup experience, I suggest starting with a lip gloss, as it’s pretty affordable and lots of fun to make. And if you’re used to buying high end glosses, this option works out to be about the same price as an off-the-shelf item, so why wouldn’t you go for the customised option?
