Bespoke Lipstick @ The Lip Lab

Jun 20 2017 by Beverly

How good would it be if you could create a bespoke lipstick, just for you? Well thanks to The Lip Lap Perth your beauty wish is granted…

I don’t know about you ladies, but I spend my life looking for the perfect lip shade.

For me it’s pink, but not too pink, statement-ish but not so much so that my rather full lips completely overtake my face.

Like most of us, I have a bathroom drawer full of lipsticks and glosses that ‘seemed like a good idea at the time’.

Colours that I thought I might wear or something that seemed a little bit experimental, but I’ve never quite got the shade right…until now.

The Lip Lap Perth changed all that by making me my PERFECT lipstick. And it’s  a super fun experience too!

First you make an appointment, then one of the gorgeous girls talks you through shades they think will suit you, the bases (you can have matte, vegan, crème or butter) and then there’s a heap of flavours to choose from or additives like SPF.

My consultant Sophie nailed my colour on the first go (she’s clearly done this before) then mixed it up right there in front of me, before melting it down into a mold and putting into a pretty case. All in the space of half an hour.

I went for a crème base (the most moisturising), a delicious lime and coconut flavour and because I’m island obsessed  of course I called it ‘tropi-cool’.

Sophie says the colours look completely different on every person because of how much natural pink your lips have in them. Mine it seems, have a lot.

Owner Helen Golisano says a voucher from The Lip Lab is pretty much the perfect present for every girl.

“It’s a unique gift experience for the girl who has everything, great for when you can no longer purchase your favourite colour lipstick anymore, for girlfriends as a special get together or as a mother and daughter treat,” she said.
