Hello!

I mixed ‘My Perfect Scarlet’ quite awhile ago (around the same time that I mixed the deep blackberry shade ‘Black Cherry‘) and the post has been languishing in my drafts for over a month.

Ah well, better late than never! (hmm I’ve been saying that a lot lately).

I do have a good reason for being so behind on all my posting this last month- I’ve been studying like a madwoman for the final written exam of the Ocular Therapeutics post grad course that I’m doing. I thought doing Optometry was tough when I was an undergrad – I had no idea how seriously draining post grad course work + full time work + blogging was going to be. I guess I shouldn’t complain- one of my colleagues working in our practice is also doing the course with me, and he is a new father.

Now that I’ve finished my exam, I’m looking forward to having time to mix some more custom Lip Tar colours. I’m also really excited about my new empty twist up brush lipgloss containers from Lehved.com (you know, like Stila Lip Glazes) that I can package my custom Lip Tars in.

I always find red lip colours extremely difficult to photograph accurately. My Perfect Scarlet, for example, looks nothing like a ‘scarlet’ in these photos- but  you’ll just have to take my word for it that in real life, it’s a darker red than it appears here. Like a blood red.
