I had the very best experience at Bite Beauty’s Lip Lab in Toronto.
Combining the art & science of creating personalized Lipsticks .
This was probably one of the best days of the year so far…
I had written in My 2017 Goals that I wanted to focus on experiential blogging –
This is what I call Creativity to the max!
When I wrote about The Lip Pencil in My Last post – I knew I was going to book an appointment right away!
I do things when I want and at my own speed this year.
Big changes …
Here we Go!
My heart did a few flips the moment I got there.
Look at all those natural pigments!
This is Austen –
The Lip Lab Artist that was such a pleasure to collaborate with.
I gave him colour ideas and it was pretty poetic as we went on a colour journey together .
Remember – everything Bite Beauty is food grade …
All these pigments are derived from Nature.
I am always drawn to Pinks and Brights and what we ended up calling Happy colours.
First we started in the Pink Family.
With My experience I chose to have 2 lipsticks created and so Pinks first …
I wanted something that was obviously very ME…
This is the whole point right!
I wanted a Luminous finish for both.
He wrote notes as we talked further about colour and I tried so many shades as he created and mixed.
And then there was wine …
Once I chose My perfect pink – which I call – ALL LOVE … – Obviously !!!
We went into Reds !
Austen was very patient with me as i am very picky when it comes to Reds.
As a Fair and very light Blonde – I needed it to have a blue undertone –
but not too blue….
Here are what I call the lip slides
The shades on the right are the final shades
Of course I kept these …
The Notes are adorable.
We called my red – Cat Attack ….!!!!
Austen was so much fun and has such a playful sense of humour.
After I customized My shades
More artistry & science
Austen with the Centrifuge ….
At This point I was making him giggle with way too many questions …
Look at His smile …
Officially Mind Blown at this point ..
Then I was asked what scent I wanted for each lipstick
For The Pink – Citrus Mango
For The Red – Cherry
This Part of the experience blows my mind
The science and creation …
Then Austen Left and went upstairs to put these gorgeous babies into their magnetic enclosed cases…
I looked around….
Love this !!!!!
Absolute Fascination ….
Then Austen Came back and more TADA

I had told the team that this was a birthday gift to myself but I did not expect my initials …
I swooned just a tad…
I think I was trembling at this point ….
This photo does not do the colours justice …
Just Wow …
Then I went home – Sigh …..
The cutest bag on the planet and the lip cookIe I will KEEP FOREVER ….
Here are my shades ….
I took these photos last night before bed – so …. lighting …. Not Great …
They smell & Look amazing and It will be a little while until I swatch them …
They are just so Beautiful …..

Hell Yeah !
To me this was way more fun than getting my hair done – nails – any of that ….
or any birthday wish list I could make ..
I was part of the creative process.
That’s what Makes it Magical …
