I still have so many new products to get through and swatch but these lip palettes were calling to me over the weekend. I’m not usually a big fan of lip colour in pan form but thanks to the recent ombre lip trend I’m starting to see a place for them in my collection. From an artists perspective they are incredibly affordable if you’re looking to build your first kit and from a non-artists perspective it’s a much more cost effective way of experimenting with colour. Many of the reds for example are so similar, you might not be able to justify owning so many but you can try several with only subtle differences with just one palette… not to mention the potential to mix an entirely new, custom shade which is what most appeals to me. In fact I’m considering trying to do just that in a separate pot to make it more handbag friendly for touch ups on the go.
