As you saw in my R.I.P. Makeup Products post (here), I used up my Sonia Kashuk Concealer Palette. I liked the look of the palette, so I started tying to think of ways to re-purpose it. It was then that I saw Emily post a DIY lipstick palette on her Beauty Broadcast Blog. Her post inspired me to turn this concealer palette into a lipstick palette. (Hers is a little different because she didn’t actually melt down any lipsticks for her palette, but the idea of re-purposing an old palette was what inspired me.)
This palette will be great to keep in my purse or to take on trips. I picked some of my favorites, while still trying to have a range of colors for versatility. I thought it would be practical to have a nude, a coral, a brighter pink/berry, and a more wearable pink.
I had a hard time deciding if I should do four or five lip colors, so I decided to do four for now, and keep a tiny lip brush with the palette so I don’t always have to use my finger to apply.
Here is a great tutorial on how to melt your lipsticks into a palette…
