A quick update on what became of the Japonesque 35 well lip palette that I purchased in a recent haul.
Before (purchased from beauty.com)
After (partially filled, getting there…)
But Karima…Why did you mash your lipsticks?!
Wait! Let me explain!
Lipstick depotting isn’t for everyone. If you like to touch up on the go, or feel nauseated at the thought of mashing a ByTerry Lipstick, then lip palettes may not be for you.
On the other hand, I had countless pots of lipsticks that I accumulated when working in the cosmetics industry (okay, I may have gouged a few Hourglass lipsticks from their bullet homes). The lip palette is functional for me but more importantly, it’s such an inspiration to look at.
Lisa Eldridge is also partly to blame, I’m sure she is the catalyst of the ‘lipstick mashing movement’. Run along and view her lip palettes.
On another note, disregard my turbulent scribble (caps? lower case? Apparently I couldn’t decide).
