Bite Lip Lab NYC
During my first day visiting NYC the girls and I stumbled upon the Lip Lab store front while shopping around near SOHO. intrigued we stepped inside for the pretty Fantastic Experience of having a custom lip shade created.
Bite is a beauty brand out of Toronto Canada, I have seen their lip products before in Sephora and have recently scene them on the YouTube beauty circuit. They are an all natural brand with lipstick made of 100% food grade ingredients so can feel good about what you are using on your lips!
When walking in you find yourself taking a seat at a long skinny table covered with every shade of lipstick imaginable. The lab tech gives a brief over view of what will happen then gets right into asking what you are looking for in a lipstick.
You get 3 finishes to choose from a matte, crème, and one with gloss. I decided on the crème finish and told my tech about the constant struggle to find the perfect nude. She immediately whipped up a combination of shades that I tested and LOVED! She mixed up another shade a bit darker for me to try as well but the first mix was a homerun for me.
The next step is picking your favorite scent to have added to your lipstick. The choices are mango, vanilla, mint, rose, lavender, blueberry, cherry and lemon. I chose mint as my scent since I am addicted to mint lip products! The tech continues on by melting down the perfect proportion of shades along with the mint oil, pouring into a cast and then In what I can only assume was baking it. The whole process took about 30 minutes and was such a treat.
Here is my personal shade of lipstick that is the ultimate nude for my lips! I am pretty happy with this purchase. This would be a fun experience for any lip product junkie, they only have the one store in NYC so if you are ever in the area be sure to check it out!
