Happy Easter and Here’s a Beauty Treat for You! – My First GIELLA Custom Made Lipsticks!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter filled with chocolate bunnies and great times with loved ones! Today was the first really beautiful, warm day in a long time and I am happy to have been able to spend part of the day outside! Let’s just hope spring is in full swing this time!
So I’m incredibly excited to be able to share through my blog, my wonderful lipstick creations that I made using GIELLA custom blend cosmetics. (I literally melt wax and mix pigments that then get poured into a lipstick mold and then carefully transferred into a tube)!
From left to right, here are the shades I created (I hope you love the colors and names I came up for them…I did put a lot of thought behind these creations and below I will explain the color in further detail):
“Mad Crush on You” - I love bright lipsticks and wanted to create the “it” color for the season. Bright pinks are everywhere and I love to wear these types of colors regardless if they are on trend or not (they flatter EVERYONE if you want my professional opinion because it gives youth/life to the face). I think everyone should invest in at least one really bright lipstick this season! Hence why I created this, I know you all need it in your life and it will soon be your new best friend! ;) This color has a creamy texture with a warm, coral undertone (vs. a blue pink undertone).
“Malibu Creamsicle” - Although this looks very peach, once this is applied, it is actually more of a nude color with a coral peach undertone. This has a creamy consistency with a slight shine, minus the shimmer. I LOVE THIS COLOR!!! It’s perfect in so many ways and it’s just a chic color!
“Wink, Wink” – Anyone that knows me knows I’m obsessed with pink lipsticks and always love a nice light bubble gum type of pink. I wanted to create my own signature light pink shade and came up with this gorgeous color. It’s a bit pale and fairly nude on, but it’s a great base to layer under gloss and perfect for finishing off a smokey eye look. This has some nice little shimmer in it and as you can see below, the color payoff is still evident, even though it’s a light color.
“Flirt and Run” – This is a creamy neutral with a blend of beige, pink, and coral. Although it looks really brown, this comes up so beautifully on the lips. It’s nude without washing you out. This is a wonderful everyday shade that doesn’t scream for too much attention, but rather gives a subtle splash of color.
I took a photo of the actual lipstick swatches so you can get an idea what they actually would look like (keep in mind this would vary depending on skintone and also look different once actually applied on the lips):
For more information on how to order these or request a specific lipstick shade to be custom-made for you, please do not hesitate to contact me! Keep in mind that Mother’s Day is around the corner…what better gift than a custom made lipstick for Mom with her name on it!
I can also create lip glosses (which I will experiment with this week), eyeliners, cheek tints, bronzers, etc!
