I’ve been having a ton of fun making lip oil formulations this year, and today I’m finally sharing three of my favourite formulations starring a new-to-me ingredient that I’m low-key obsessed with. These are super easy to stir up (no heating required!) and are a lovely way to moisturize your lips and add a bit of shine. Let’s get started!
These formulations were inspired by the Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat Blur Face Primer; a $52USD/oz. blurring facial primer that makes your skin look airbrushed. I’ll teach you how to make this primer for less than 1/5 the price, plus how to customize it into extra glowy and truly luxurious variations. Let’s dive in!
The inspiration for this Transfer-Resistant Cream Foundation came from two places. Place #1 was my 2020 Second Skin Cream Foundation, which was inspired by RCMA’s cream foundations. I love this formulation and have been using it ever since. My love (and use) was intensified when I ordered my favourite magnetic palette and wanted to put all the things it it. I scraped my Second Skin Cream Foundation out of its little 5g pot and moved it to a standalone 36mm round pan and was off to the races! I now positively adore having as much of my makeup as possible in a magnetic palette, which is where piece of inspiration #2 comes into play.
This Frosted Cranberry Matte Lip & Cheek Colour is really neat; it’s a hybrid between a matte liquid lipstick and a lip stain. It has a creamy consistency that dries down to a powdery, transfer-resistant finish. Richly coloured, it both wears and re-applies well, and it’s comfortable to boot. Hooray!
I’ve had a ton of requests for a lip oil recently, and I thought this year’s Frosted Cranberry theme was a great backdrop for a shiny new lip oil formulation 😄 This cheery red oil imparts moisture and shine to our lips and it smells softly of fresh, juicy cranberry oil.
Today I’m sharing a formulation I have been working on for months—a Long-Wear Cream Eyeliner. It goes on like a dream, wears beautifully, and easily holds its own when compared to products like Bobbi Brown’s Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner and KVD’s Tattoo Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner. The formulation I’m sharing today has been in development since May, meaning I tested it through some of our hottest summer days to make sure it was worthy of being released 😄
