Last week I had the opportunity to go visit BITE
Beauty’s Lipstick Lab in SoHo, and let me say… for all you Lipstick Junkies like me, this place is heaven. Any color you want you can create it right here! You can pick and blend different shades until you find what you are looking for.
I came with the exact color I wanted in mind, so I got right to it. Melissa who took care of me that day was so helpful, I would refer to her forever as the Lipstick Virtuoso. I gave her the exact color I wanted and she blended 3 shades, gave me a lip brush with the color to try it on… and voilà, the exact color I wanted. She made this beautiful pinky red with purple undertones. Well… at least that’s how I can explain it with words.
Melissa let me pick the finish I preferred from matte, sheer, luminous crème, crème deluxe (my choice); also add the scent I wanted. BITE had wild berries (my choice), cherry, peppermint, melon, violet, and vanilla.
Melissa then took the colors I wanted and placed them in a little pot to mix with the formula in a small centrifuge. After, the mix was placed in a lipstick mold to chill at -2 degrees Fahrenheit to harden into the perfect lipstick bullet. The whole process took around seven minutes from start to finish.
I will definitely return for more on my next visit to NYC!
