Making My Own Lipstick at The Lip Lab

I spent this last Tuesday morning down at The Lip Lab in Fremantle designing my own lipstick. It’s the second time I have created my own (my first poor lipstick was carelessly left in the car by Yours Truly and melted to its very messy death). It is a process that is thoroughly enjoyable and one that I recommend you try, especially if you are a fellow beauty lover.

When I attended their launch event last year I went in with no preconceived notion of what shade I was going to create. This time I was better prepared and I designed a shade that is my typical “go to” lip colour – the sort of hue I seem to gravitate towards every single time I go makeup shopping. Here’s how I created my perfect rosy-pink shade…

Make your own lipstick

Since I already knew what sort of lip shade I wanted to create, when I sat down with Tanya from The Lip Lab in Fremantle it was as simple as showing her a colour match of what I envisioned. She began mixing the different pigments needed while I chose which fragrance to add (I went with the ever classic Vanilla) and a mix of two soft shimmers – a bit of Yellow gold and Rose Gold to give a gentle sheen. I then decided on a creme finish (you can opt for matte, gloss, etc) and all that was left to do was settle on a custom name while the lipstick formula was busy being mixed, poured and set.

I named the shade “Turkish Rose”.

We ended up making two copies of the lipstick – one for me and one as a giveaway. To enter the giveaway and be in the running to own your own “Turkish Rose” lipstick and a Swarovski bracelet (pictured below) simply check out this photo on my Instagram and follow the steps.

    This is so beautiful! I want to make my own lipstick – the colour I always gravitate towards is red 😋 Your colour is just gorgeous though, I love it!

    I really want to go to the Lip Lab here in Brisbane to create the perfect nude for my crazy pale skin. I absolutely love the shade you created for yourself! Great post 😊

    Turkish Rose is a stunning shade and name for a lippie. I have to visit the Lip Lab in Freo soon, it looks like it would be a lot of fun!

    I had a look at this, saw the price and thought I would wait to read a few reviews first. Sounds like a good way to channel a bit of creativity 😊

    I did, but only using the lipsticks that I already own. I think being able to create your own lippy (including the scent of your choice), is an amazing experience. I wish we had that here, too. :'(

    What a gorgeous shade! I’ve been kicking myself for not doing this at the Bite Beauty store in NYC a few years ago. I’ll have to do this in Melbourne!

    That is a stunning shade – looks like my perfect nude. I’m dying to go to the Lip Lap and make my own, I think I need to get a few girls together and make it a thing!

    That’s such a gorgeous shade! I’ve been wanting to go to the bite beauty lip lab close by me because I really want to create my own shade like you did.
    Love the post!
