Bold Flamingo

“I love you”

I did what I think is the coolest thing when I was in NYC this past weekend. You need to promise me that you’ll do this if you ever go (or if you live there).

I can’t remember how I even stumbled upon this article, but after readingΒ about a lipstick lab where you could createΒ a custom shade of lipstick I knew I had to try to make that happen.

I anticipated lines wrapped around the block, but as my husband and I approached the store just minutes before it opened on a Sunday, I was pleasantly surprised to only see a few customers waiting outside. Nonetheless, I’m glad we got there early.

I sat down with a lovely woman whose name now escapes me and she walked me through the process. I was a little familiar having read about it beforehand, but it was more exciting than you can imagine to look at all the color options in front of me.

bite1

My consultant swatchedΒ each of the different finishes so I could pick which one I wanted. I chose the sheerest of all the options, and this lipstick isn’t even close to sheer. Bite doesn’t skimp on pigment, so consider yourself warned. The 3 main finishes are $36 and there is one luxurious option which I believe starts at about $45. Be sure to ask the consultant before you begin!

I told her I was interested in a pinky coral shade and she got right to work. It was interesting to see her start with a latte color and then build up from there. She grabbed shades I wouldn’t have thought would work together, but it turned into a orange-red color right before my eyes.

After trying on the first shade she concocted, I asked her to make it a little bit more pink. She obliged, and despite thinking I knew what I wanted, I ended up preferring the first shade between the two. I’m sure I could have spent more time mixing and testing shades, but I was pretty pleased with the first shade she made for me.

She directed me over to the section where I choose my flavor. I was tempted to go with the mint, because that’s typically my favorite flavor within lip products, but I chose vanilla instead. The flavor is so subtle I can’t even tell it’s there, so I’m not sure it would have mattered if I chose a different one.

bite10

After the color and flavor was decided upon, she grabbed all the necessary shades from behind a glass wall to melt together in some sort of microwave. Once melted, she tested the color on her arm to make sure it matched the formula she created earlier, and then poured it into the mold.

Oddly enough, the only step left after that was to let the mold sit on top of a freezer and allow the lipstick to set. It all seemed incredibly simple.

bite4

After just 5 minutes, she popped my lipstick out and placed it into a container. It’s recommended that you wait about 20-30 minutes before applying it straight from the tube just to ensure it’s completely cooled and set.

bite6

I loved the whole process. I found it really fun to go through the process of creating my very own shade, and I’d do it again in a heartbeat. The store is fairly narrow and small, but tucked away in a cobblestoned area of West Village downtown New York City. The staff was friendly and helpful, and if my husband wouldn’t have been with me, I would have spent much more time looking around at everything in the store.

When I initially sat down to create the shade, I asked my consultant to make 2 lipsticks so I could give one away to one of you! The shade is a bright orange-pink-red (it looks different in different lighting!) that is highly pigmented. Look at it as a statement lipstick. I’ve worn it several times already and quite enjoy that it stains my lips a nice, rich color even after the lipstick wears off.

Brittney says · 06.04.14

I agree, the color looks wonderful on you. However, I always shy away to a more nude/ subtle shade of lipstick because I always feel like bolder colors tend to make to look like I’m trying too hard or like a 3 year old that got into her mom’s make-up. Weird, I know. I would love to learn which bolder shades would work on me!

Wow, what an incredible idea! I’ve heard of personalised perfumes but never lipsticks. It seems so clever, and I’d love to see the process of a lipstick being created. Will 100% do this if I’m ever in the vicinity. I’ve only recently heard of Bite but apparently they’re the new big name in lip products – will have to check out some of their stuff (fingers crossed it’s available in the UK). Lovely post, the shade you created is gorgeous.

I knew about the whole create your own perfume thing but not this! I think I like the lipstick much better. The last couple years I tended to wear a neutral lip and play up my eyeshadow, but the last year or so I’ve been obsessed with a bright lip! I had all these neutrals so I’m now working on building up my bold lipstick collection. The color you created is absolutely perfect!!

I used to always be a “nuetral” lip sort of girl, but lately I have been wearing coral pinks and bright reds. It makes me feel like a lady to have more of a statement color these days. I am not afraid of standing out like I used to be.

I tend to do neutral if I’m just running out to Target or something, and go bold when I’m out of my house for actual plans that don’t involve wandering around throwing too many things into the cart. I also tend to go bolder/brighter in the spring/summer since pinks & coral work for me… fall/winter bold colors DO NOT.

I almost always go for the bold. There is just something about a pop of color that makes me feel put together. In fact, sometimes when I’m feeling the crummiest, that’s when my lip color is the the boldest. In the words of my mother, “Never leave the house without a little bit of color on your lips.” I just take it to an extreme somedays.
My go to colors are corals, reds, and oranges. And, pinks are new to the mix. Absolutely love this “Bold Flamingo” and only wish I’d discovered this shop about a month ago on my trip to NYC.

I typically steer towards a neutral lip. My staples are the Revlon Balm Stain in Honey and the Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Sultry. Sultry’s a bit more “daring” but still a pretty safe bet! I do own a few “statement” lip colors and am trying to work them in my routine, though!

I typically wear a lighter color that pretty close to my lip color… however, we’re the same shade of pale (sorry) and I think the color you created will be beautiful!

Oh my word. I am a neutral gal all the way! But, I’ve bought a couple statement lipsticks, and I’d love to find the right shade that works for me. Kate, that coral is lovely on you, and since we both share pale skin, I’m hoping your custom lip shade might be my perfect statement match! πŸ™‚

Bold lipstick! I’m usually a chapstick person, so if I’m wearing lipstick, it’s because I want a pop of color

I’m a stay at home mom of 3 and my husband works out of town over half the week. So for me, it’s usually ChapStick or a very light lipstick. But on the off chance that we get to go on a date, I would love a nice bright (coraly colors are my fav) color to spruce myself up!

I started with darker, neutral pinks when I was younger, then just wore chapstick and glosses. Over the past couple of years, I have been more daring. I bought “streak” per your recommendation, and have bought some other vibrant colors. Dont have too many though, and would LOVE this shade!

Pleasantly surprised I hope! <3
