So last night all my dreams came true! I had the opportunity to design my own signature lipstick. How many countless hours have I spent in search of the perfect lipstick to match an outfit? I can gladly say my searching days are over thanks to the opening of The Lip Lab Ballarat.
I have been wearing lipstick since I was 13. I am not ashamed to admit this nor am I ashamed to admit to having a very large makeup collection and most of my collection is lipstick. When I go on holiday I pack not only a makeup bag but also lipstick bag. This has been my life since I remember.
As a little girl I remember sitting on the bed in my grandmothers bedroom watching as she sat at her dressing table carefully applying her lipstick. Later as a teen she gave me tips on application, assisting me to apply my own lipstick. In the last few months of her life before her cancer took her, it was I who delicately applied her lipstick for her.
Lipstick for me is something important and personal. It is my self expression of who I want to be each day. It is my chance to be creative every morning as I decided which colour goes with what. As a new mum lipstick has become even more important to me as most days I get about in PJ’s, trackies or jeans. My hair might be unwashed for days and I may have only had a few hours sleep but with one splash of colour on my lips, I feel I am ready to face the day.
Last night all of my lipstick dreams came true when my sister and I attended the launch of The Lip Lab Ballarat and I had the opportunity to have my own signature lipstick made. To say I am obsessed would be an understatement. As soon as I sat down with the talented Andrea I froze. With unlimited options before me I suddenly clammed up – do I want pink or do I want red or do I want coral? Do I want cream gloss? Do I want SPF? Do I want shimmer? Do I want flavour? YES, YES, YES!!
I happily ended up with my own lipstick that I named Goldfields Rose (so original!). I plan to be back very soon for more lipstick or even to try out their other great range of services (makeup, tanning and waxing to name a few). Considering spring racing reason is now happening I suspect the store is about to get very busy. If you have been searching for that perfect lip colour to match your outfit – this is the answer to your prayers!!
