Well, we’ve got our Galentines day plans all set this year!
If you’re still on the hunt to find the perfect lipstick shade just for you, halt your search and opt for creating your very own! And in the spirit of Galentine’s day, why not make it a cute party and have all your friends each create their very own personalised lipstick too.
Recently opened at One Utama Shopping Centre, The Lip Lab has got a bit of a cocktail bar feel, but instead of mixing drinks, you’ll be mixing pigments. The experience begins with a quick but thorough consultation with their artist where you’ll discuss things like preference in texture, colour and finish. Literally the world is your lipstick filled oyster and you can create just about any colour that’s under the sun. Not only will you be able to choose between a lip gloss or lipstick, you’ll be able to customise whether you’d prefer a matte or more satin finish and even what shape and casing you’d like for your lipstick too.
Then comes the fun part – creating the actual colour. The mix of pigments depend on what you’re looking to create, whether its a nude, pink, red or black – whichever. You’ll start with a base and slowly add on more pigments till the colour turns out to what you want it to be. This process comes with a lot of hand and lip swatching to truly perfect exactly what you want! To customise it even further, you can even choose what scent you’d like it to smell like and whether or not you’d like to add SPF in it too.
and Voila, all that’s left is for the artist to pour your concoction into a mould and you’ve got yourself your very own lipstick! The great thing about The Lip Lab is that it saves every single shade made, so if you’ve really fallen in love with your creation, you can always come back and repurchase.
Another great way to utilise the Lip Lab is if your favourite lipstick has been discontinued, just bring the original lipstick and they’ll be able to recreate it for you and match it to the best of their ability. Not only offering lipsticks, you can even create your own foundation too! For those still struggling to find their perfect match, this is a great option as you can truly finesse the formula and colour for yourself.
