Here at Wendy there are a few things we love – beauty and shade – so we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to send Ashley from the Hot Topics Bureau to create her own custom lipstick at Bite Beauty Lip Lab.

At Bite Beauty Lip Lab, you can create your own custom color shade of lipstick. From the color, to the finish, to the scent, the lipstick becomes uniquely yours.

Of course, our top lipsticknista, knew exactly what she wanted (nothing like a good red lipstick). If you have no clue what you want, don’t sweat it. The Lip Lab experts are there to walk you through every step.

Here’s how you can create the perfect shade!

Step 1: Make a Reservation

Whether you wanna go with two friends, or an entire party, Bite Beauty Lip recommends that you make a reservation. The whole process of creating your custom lipstick will take about 20 minutes!

Step 2: Create Your Shade

Bite Beauty Lip Lab has experts on the floor to help you build a unique shade of lipstick. Start a little brighter, and then you can always add pigment to make it darker. The most popular shades are red and nude, but you can go pink, purple, green, or even aqua marine. Literally, whatever your little heart desires.

Step 3: Choose a Finish

Do you like juicy lips? Go with a gloss. Kissable lips? Go with a matte. For classic rich and creamy lips, you’ll want amuse bouche.

Step 4: Choose a Scent

Next you add a flavor. Choose from cherry, mint, vanilla, citrus, mango, violet, coconut, wild berry, and fresh citrus. Delicious!

Step 5: Watch the Magic!

Thanks to Bite Beauty Lip Lab, your work here is done! Your expert will melt down the lipstick, add the scent, freeze it, then put it in the tube!

Step 6: Name Your Lipstick

Ok, this isn’t an actual step. But if you’re like us, you can name your lipstick shade. Being a part of the Hot Topics Bureau, Ashley thought of a name that would fit the bill: Red Receipts. Don’t forget to get a copy of your lipstick formula so you can create your custom lipstick again and again.
