MAC-Guy, do you have a sense for how long the shelf life would be for a custom mix? If it's not long, then I'll be sure to make a tiny amount.
I try to produce enough product to last me a week, but not much more. The l/m are very pigmented, so you really don't need much. The problem is where to store it since the l/m palettes were d/c-ed. Also, it's not always easy to recreate exactly the same shade, but that's also the fun part.
And yes, there is no reason to not like a lippie anymore as the colored l/m are great to warm up or cool down a lippie. They are an excellent way to play with old lippies and glosses that don't really suit you that much. Just use some lipmix and make them "you." I'd say it's one of the best kept secrets for Pro items.
