Berry Lips

If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen this pic from NYC. My friend, Meredith and I went to the Bite Beauty Lip Lab and each made a custom lipstick. For a lipstick addict like me, this was heaven! It was also a lot harder than I thought it would be. There were just too many possibilities that it took awhile to find the perfect color! As you can see above, the 5th time was the charm. 

Here are all the shades that can be mixed together! Your personal beauty consultant asks a few questions to figure out what you are looking for, I wanted a berry color for fall. She also asked what type of finish I wanted: matte, sheer or cream. After she mixed a color, I would try it on and then discuss any changes I wanted to make. She was so patient with me and all the specific things I wanted. I started out with a cream finish but in the end went for a sheer finish to give me a wash of color. 

Once you have finalized your color you get to pick out the scent and packaging. It makes the entire lipstick completely customized! I went with the mango citrus scent. After you have finally picked everything out they mix and make your customized lipstick. You can watch a video of the whole process here

The final product!!! It looks a lot darker than it actually is. Picking the sheer finish makes it more of a wash of color and less intense. 

Since most of us aren't in NYC very often to make a lipstick, I found a few other fall colors I'm loving. A wash of berry color is my one of my favorite fall looks. When worn light it is great for day. Then just layer it on for a dramatic night look.
