Finally, You Can Truly Create The Perfect Custom Lipstick Shade

Lipstick fanatics, rejoice: Your dream shade can be made right before your eyes. In just 15 minutes? That's right, dreams do come true.

Beauty-lovers know how hard it is to find the right shade β€” you know, the one that matches both your skin tone and your wardrobe to a T. Of course, there is a slew of ways to help you find the right shade of lipstick that fits your skin tone. Yet, there's still the struggle of sitting alone in the lipstick aisle swapping shade after shade, settling with one that simply just works. But the Bite Beauty Lip Labs that are proving your lipstick dreams can come true.

The Lip Lab, with locations in New York, Toronto, Fillmore, and Valley Fair, lets you experience the art of making your very own personalized lipstick. According to the Bite Lip Lab site, each visitor has an opportunity to sit down with a Lip Lab artist, who are highly trained in the art of creating the perfect shade. They will walk you through hand selecting your custom texture and flavor, with nearly 200 exclusive Bite Beauty pigments.

Once you pick your pigment, you get to pick a finish: glossy sheer, matte creme, or amuse bouche. Your final step is picking out an all-natural scent: cherry, mint, vanilla, citrus, mango, violet, coconut, wild berry, and fresh citrus. Even cooler? The entire process usually only takes 15 minutes.

The lippies run $55 per person or $80 for two. Or, if you want to go all-out to ensure you get the shade that fits your exact specifications and matches your skin perfectly, you'll have to pay out $155 β€” but it comes with two unique shades and a Lip Lab exclusive lip kit.

And besides the beautiful pigments and incredible final product, you get the rad experience of making your own lipstick, which has us sold already. Check out some of the amazing photos below to see how it works. (And catch us booking a flight to one of the Bite Lip Lab shops ASAP.)
