I CREATED MY OWN LIPSTICK WITH ESTÉE LAUDER // SELFRIDGES TRAFFORD


 YOU HEARD ME - I CREATED MY OWN - MY OWN FLIPPING LIPSTICK.

When I seen on Selfridges IG that they had the Estee Lauder lipstick maker machine at Selfridges in the Trafford centre - I just knew I had to go. So when I got invited to do it, I booked the day off work and travelled down. I don't think I've done something so exciting.

Whats better is that YOU CAN DO IT TOO!

But not for long - its only there until the 11th nov. Then its a gonna.


The first stage is picking a base colour - you can change the shade of it but once you have a base colour you can start altering it to your taste. The one I wanted was out of stock but I thought its a sign because I buy nude lipstick why don't I create a shade I cant buy.

So I picked a pinky nude and added brown and white to change the the lightness and make it more nude than pink. The whole mixing it totally cool and its so exciting seeing the colours come together.

They melt them together and once they're all melted you can try a little bit to see if its the shade you want, then keep adding white black browns or yellows to change the shade.

You can actually see the whole process on my IG  - @girltalkwithlaura and its in my beauty highlights.



It costs £81 for 3 lipsticks - one applicator with lipstick and 2 refills with a case. You can also engrave it (as well as engraving other Estee Lauder products) so I chose my blog name of course!

The whole process is just truly amazing and it would make the perfect present for someone or if you and your mam wanted to create your own lipsticks its just a nice bonding session.
A lipstick that will bring back so many memories & hold a special place in your heart.

Plus - it feels so good when people ask.."what lipstick are you wearing?"

"its my own hun"



The lipstick itself is unreal - the finish on it is perfect. You can chose whether you want matte or shine and I went for shine because the finished look I wanted to create was a moisturised natural lip colour. So I mostly wear mine with a touch of lip balm under so it looks more natural and moisturising but I can wear it bold but still moisturising.

The engraving process is also just as fun because you get to chose your font, what you have on it and the colour - I went with silver because when we tried the gold it didn't stay in very well and the silver looked bolder and neat.


When your current lipstick runs out because - WARNING - you will become obsessed with wearing it, then all you have to do it simply pull it out and replace it with your refill and you're ready to go again.

The only stores that have this feature are Selfridges in Trafford Centre & the one in London. So if you can get yourself to one of these and quick because you don't have long - if you want to ring to book the Trafford store then ring this number 0161 6291 122 & tell them I sent you.
