Making an affordable lip palette

My affordale lip palette created with budget lipsticks

For the longest time I've wanted to buy a Mac empty palette, buy a 24 lip insert and start my own palette. When I saw that Mac had dropped thier prices of the palettes I instantly picked up them both and started to fill my palette. Although being a student I havent got the money for expensive lipsticks let alone attempt cutting them up, so I decided to buy cheap lipsticks from brands such as Freedom Makeup and MUA. Freedom Makeup are currently doing a deal where if you buy five lipsticks you can get a pound off! As soon as the lipsticks came I started the task of creating my palette.

After a little practice after a few wrong attempts I came to the solution that you pretty much need the whole lipstick to fill a well if you wind it up. However as I disccovered further down the tube is a lot more product so dont throw these away if you want to get the most out of the product. I then simple placed a spoon over a candle and let the lipstick melt ( beware the spoon gets very hot!!). All thats left is for you to poor in the product to the well and allow to set. I think the palette looks so sleek and proffessional and this is such a cheap way to create a perfect travel lip palette especially as I compete in dance frequently!

I'd love to know what you think about this and if you might consider it youself? Feel free to leave any questions about the lipsticks or process and I will get back to you!
