MIXUP artists!
So lately I have been a bit smitten with creating different lip colors with a clear gloss and either one (or a mix) of eyeshadow/blush pigments.  For instance, I loved the limited edition Quite Cute line from MAC, but I ran out of their original lipstick (titled after the line).  So, I gently rubbed a disposable mascara wand against MUFE #92 and mixed it with “Triple X” by NARS. Depending on how much color I mix with the gloss, I can achieve a duplicate of “Quite Cute” without having to hunt it down on ebay or find a color closs by Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics (I was tempted!). This is an easy an economical way to achieve a vibrant lip!  Also, if you mix a cream shadow with the gloss you get a more pigmented lip color.  Options are limitless! MIXUP artists!
