I made 3 colours and used acrylic round pots as my packaging. I will obviously need a lip brush to use them, or I can use them like lip balm.
- The 1st shade I made were all Barry M lipsticks, I used a nude, a barbie pink, a lilac and a golden pink to make the beautiful pinky nude with lilac undertones.
- The 2nd was mainly made up of Barry M's 54 Peach, which was a matte finish and very fluorescent, I added a milky pink, a pale brown, a bright coral and a nude with mainly luminous finishes, to achieve an amazing moisturising milky peachy orange.
- The last one was made up of a bright pink with blue undertones and a coral colour to add warmth to it. It's very summery and would look great with a tan.
How did I do it? I got a little metal pot, scooped in the lipsticks I wanted to transform. Put them on the hob to melt, gave them a good mix and poured them into the acrylic pots and left to dry for about 10mins.
Easy peasy, lemon squeezy!
Here's what my lipstick drawer looks like, I am so proud as I had triple this and managed to narrow it down to this. I have stacked a few things, but everything is accessible and visible. YES!!!! I did use the packaging of a Davidoff perfume bottle to store some lipsticks on the right! :)
How do you store your lipsticks?
