On my last trip to New York, I knew there was one bit of shopping I had to get done, and that’s getting a custom lipstick made by Bite Beauty! Even though I have enough lipsticks to last me 2 lifetimes as is, who doesn’t want something tailored made for you? And the whole experience was so fun, I highly recommend all you lipstick lovers to check it out!
Once I got to the cute Bite Lip Lab on Prince Street, I was like a kid in a candy store, marveling at all the lip pigments the lipsticks in the making they had around the store. I eventually decided that I wanted to make 3 lipsticks, one MLBB (my lips but better) color that I have never been able to find anywhere, a orangey red for the summer, and a bold pink that was striking but not too cool or warm toned.
My consultant immediately began mixing various pigments, and we’d try out her creations one at a time, letting her know what I think needs to be tweaked. You can also choose between 3 types of finish for the lipstick. After many many rounds of mixing and adding and trying, the Eureka moment came and I found my dream colors!
You can even choose the scent of your lipstick and the shape of the lipstick bullet – how amazing is that? And the lipsticks only take about 20 minutes to make once you’ve decided on the color. The whole process couldn’t be more of a breeze.
Here are my final colors at the bottom of the palette! I don’t know if I can go back to regular off-the-shelf lipsticks anymore!
