Fyrinnae follow-up… aka homemade CCBs!

The photos are all pretty self-explanitory. Please see this post for swatches of the colours used dry! These are great for people with chronic pain, beginners, or people on the go. Lips and cheeks all in a small 3g jar — talk about easy :) They’re very high pigment compared to most products, so these leave nice stains throughout the day, without all the gross, greasy, ickiness that Vaseline usually causes.

Melty — hee, wasn’t it cute to begin with?? (While it was still… melty?)
[Gives a nice non-pigmented sheen to the lips. We didn’t intend it for the cheeks!]

Mesmerise (glow blush)
[Sheered out, it gives the most gorgeous berry glow. A little thicker on the lips and you get a pretty just-bitten stain!]

Enrapture (glow blush)
[Blends to a nice, clear, pop of pink. Also makes a very pretty gloss!]

Kabuki — I just *had* to post the blending photo. I don’t know why, but there’s just something about it…
[A brown-toned red for the lips… and the cheeks to contour, if used very sheerly! The finish on the lips is a bit frosty for my tastes, but my sister likes it, and that’s all that really matters.]

    Laura: melt them down (in a metal tablespoon over but not touching a candle, swirling,) then pour them into their containers, drop them from about a half-inch off the tabletop to help settle the product, and let them sit!
