About Me

My photo
This make-up artist and esthetician has a (bordering on unhealthy) addiction to all things beauty! No amount of eyeshadows or cream liners will ever be enough! I go giddy for all things girly. Lipgloss might not be able to heal the world, but it can lift a gal's spirits!

Custom Lipgloss

So Partner in Crime offered to make me a custom lipgloss the last time I popped by to say hi at her work. I know right, friendship has its benefits! I decided to build off of a classic lipgloss that I love- Mark's Pro Gloss in Splashy. The clear jar to the right was the lipgloss base to which we added pigments, flavors, etc...
The second step was to match my original gloss to a color chart. From finding the closest match, there is a color formula or equation for mixing pigments.
Adding peach pigments to the base, the jar on the counter contained loose mica.
Yup, I would be making custom glosses non stop like a mad scientist, if I had a gloss bar like this! Seriously, I already have a drawer of nothing but lipglosses in my office at work alone.

I picked Pink Champagne as my custom flavor for a nice pick me up when I can't be drinking actual champagne at work!

The mixed concoction is then gently microwaved for a few seconds to liquify it & enable it to be easily poured into a standard gloss container with doefoot applicator. Voila- here's the final product swatched! I wanted a little bit more of a peach pop of color than my original gloss & of course Partner in Crime couldn't help but add a little shimmer. Divine. If you are local to Baltimore, you can pop in here for your own or if you're dying to have your gloss or lip color matched check out Three Custom Color Specialists.

Peace. Love. Lipgloss. M
