I was at the C.N.E. this weekend (Canadian National Exhibition); it's definitely a tradition as I go every year not just for the rides, food and games, but also for the crazy good shopping! This year I happened upon a booth that was making customized lip balms and glosses, Lip Labz. (Oh, they know my makeup weakness ;)
Customizing my gloss and balm
For the lip balm, you pick your tube and choose your flavour(s). They make it and pour it for you on the spot.
I chose the flavour "peppermint patty". It smells just like an After Eight mint! Mmmmm. It is a clear gloss and very creamy and hydrating.
All the flavour combinations!
For the gloss, you choose the colour and add a flavour to it.
I chose the colour "Spring Tulip" - a lovely sheer pink and flavoured it with Cupcake! It applies with a brush applicator (just turn the end to deposit the gloss on the brush).

I love these lip products! Both the balm and gloss are vegan, really moisturizing, and made with all-natural ingredients (like coconut oil, shea butter and cocoa butter). To see all of the colour and flavour combos you can make, go here for lip balms and here for lip glosses (there's literally billions of combinations). The balms cost $3.99 each and glosses $9.99 each - and they ship free worldwide! (There's even a webcam on their site so you can watch them make your balm or gloss live!) Lip Labz is running a special promo at the C.N.E - lipbalms $2 each and glosses $6.99, so if you are going in the next few weeks you may want to check them out. If you aren't already hooked on lip balms, you will be :)
