Lip Copy

16 Jun

Yesterday I stumbled upon Eccentric Owl’s blog page. It was a May 30, 2011 post where she demonstrated an easy eye make-up technique she uses daily. It’s a quick and fun little video and she is wearing the most amazing shade of lipstick!

So I wrote to her and asked if she wouldn’t mind sharing the name of it as well as the company that makes it.

Turns out it’s her natural lip color! Lucky Girl!

She said she had been looking for a similar color for a while and would pass along the info if she happened upon it. Which got me to thinking—-why don’t make-up companies do what home improvement companies have been doing for a while now. And that’s color matching!

Got a chip on that old dresser your mother gave to you? No problem. All you need is a small sample of that paint and they can’t match that particular shade you mother used back in 1983. Have a favorite burnt orange scarf that you think would make the most amazing shade for your dining room? No problem. Take that scarf in, they’ll scan it and voila you have coordinating walls to go with that accessory.

So why then can’t make-up companies do this same thing? You could take your favorite shoes, cloth napkin or in this case, your own lips, get it scanned and then have lipstick, nail polish, eye shadow, blush, mascara made from it.

I don’t think this sort of thing exists. If it does, please let me know where because I have a gorgeous Kate Spade purse in red that would make the best lipstick EVER!

    I think you should invent such a company, because that’s a really good idea. I know that they match colors for paint sometimes like this, but doing the same for makeup would be so great!

      You know, that’s not a bad idea. Of course, you would have to agree to have your lips copied. MARA would be my first lipstick release. :o)
