The Joelle’s team recently spent an evening at Amanda Steene Cosmetics
located at 2017 Lakeshore Road in Downtown Burlington. We chose the Custom Lips package from the Party List
which included a custom lipstick for everyone and a glass of champagne!
Since we came after work, we added on a charcuterie platter from the guys over at The Block Co
another one of our fave downtown businesses.
After filling out a short questionnaire for their files, we got down to business trying to figure out the colours we wanted to create. Gloss or lipstick? Matte, cream, velvet, vegan or lipgloss? Add sparkle? Add fragrance and frosting - chocolate, vanilla, coconut, strawberry, cupcake, sangria? How fun!
Technology! We were able to “try on” colours on the iPad. Purple - umm, no thanks! But fun to try!
Mixing and blending, Amanda and Karen worked their magic to get us the perfect shades. The colours are blended using their scientific, magnetic, heating-stirring system.
The lipsticks are molded and popped into a pretty tube - glosses are set and poured into your applicator! Voila!!
You can see our custom colours up on the board! Joelle’s pink is super fun, with a hint of sparkle and sangria flavouring.
Of course, we were wearing some of our spring collections!
Be sure to pop by Amanda Steene Cosmetics the next time you are downtown. Custom foundations, makeup application, and a range of primers, cleansers, moisturizers, and ready made makeup is available. Amanda offers years of expertise!
