Painterly Fun!

As promised! New post on my favorite new addition to my kit! Now I literally have every lipstick color possible!!! Mua-hah-haaa!
This is exciting stuff: You can get it for $29 at Sephora!
Awesome little kit for creative brains. Originally I had planned on creating a bunch of possible combos until I realized how well these work as a stain! It would have been a major headache to do a color and try to take it off and switch it 30 different times. Sorry! 
When it came in the mail yesterday I played around a little bit to see how strong they are. 
I wanted to see if I could make orange, I mixed equal parts Red & Yellow it didn't turn out very orange at all. I invented a new color "Ch-Ch Cherry Bomb!" and its my new favorite "red" ;) 
My advice would be a little dab will do ya! If you want orange you should mix 1 part yellow to 1/4th of red.
The colors are very strong! The red and blue are powerful!
Because I was unable to do every color on my lips I wanted to at least demonstrate the variation of colors you can make with this awesome mini kit on my mixing plate
Here is an example of how bright the white is!
And here is today's creation: I am naming it "Merlife Ferlife"

  I mixed a dot the size the tip of a toothpick of blue and yellow with the bright white on my lips pictured above & waaa-laaa "Merlife-ferlife"

The only con with these lip tars is that they are extremely transferable! Very messy but if you don't eat, drink, kiss anyone, or just don't touch your mouth at all...They stay!!
