Sleek Pout Paints: Mixing the Perfect Warm Rose Shade

Thursday, August 25, 2011

Ever since I got my Sleek Makeup Pout Paints, I've been happily mixing all sorts of shades to my heart's delight - it really sparks my creative juices and gets them all flowing! And of course, I get to mix my favourite shades that I know I'd love to wear!

One of the shades I especially like is this shade, shown below. I'm not too sure what to call it, so for want of a better colour description I'm just going to call it a warm rose shade, which isn't too far off, methinks - it's warmer than your usual blue-leaning rose shade, and is neutral enough to be universally flattering, if I do say so myself! The warm rose shade is circled in the photo below, placing it side-by-side with some of my other creations, which I will also write about on this blog:

And this is what the colour looks like swatched on my arm. This was featured in my Pout Paints swatch post, but I've circled the shade I'm featuring today. It kinda looks like a warm rose-ish shade, doesn't it?

For this shade, I used just three of the Pout Paints, circled below. I used Peachy Keen 156, the peach shade, Pin Up 157, the red shade, and Cloud 9 153, the white shade.

Now, time to create! First, I added the three colours together. I used a drop of Pin Up, and added a little bit more of Peachy Keen. And then I added just a little bit of Cloud 9. The following shows the colours in the amounts they were used, before mixing.

Next, mix and blend the colours together. I got this shade, a rose that had a neutral undertone and wasn't too light or dark. I have to say, Pin Up is seriously pigmented, and if you're using that shade to colour-correct a mixture, remember - a little goes a long way! I've noticed that red shade tends to show up quite strongly in any blend it's added to.

I liked the shade I got, so I didn't bother to customize further. As you can see from the photo above, though, I only created a teensy tiny amount of the shade - literally just enough to almost cover the base of the blending jar. The mixture was super-pigmented, and also quite sticky and tacky in texture. So I decided to blend in clear gloss to lighten the texture, as well as increase the amount of gloss I had.

However, I didn't actually have any totally clear gloss on me. So I just ended up using some clear gloss with bits of shimmer. I think it's some random Lancome Juicy tube which came as part of a set. That thing is seriously annoyingly sheer. Nothing shows up on my lips except the shimmer, so I thought it would be just as good as clear gloss, only with more shimmer. The photo below shows the amount of gloss I added. As you can see, it was a pretty big dollop of gloss compared to the drops of Pout Paint I was working with previously!

The final end result is this. Ta-da! Even with the relatively big dollop of clear gloss added to the mix to bulk up the mixture, the final shade was still pretty pigmented, and opaque in one or two swipes. I expected the gloss I added to sheer out the final result somewhat, so I was quite surprised to see that the good pigmentation was still retained - I guess this shows just how much pigment is crammed into those tiny Pout Paint tubes!


Lastly, here is my self-created warm rose shade on my lips. You can't actually see any glitter from the clear gloss I added, whether in the pot, on my arm swatch, or on my lips, although I'm sure it's in there somewhere (I would know, right, I added it in there). I think it's because all the shimmer got lost in the pigmented-ness of the Pout Paints.

What can I say - I'm absolutely loving these, and creating a shade I liked was actually easier than I thought! I originally thought I'd end up with some blob of brown muck that would be disgustingly unwearable, but I gotta say I'm in love with my own shade. If you don't mind experimenting with mixing your own shade, the Sleek Pout Paints would be the perfect place to start. I'll be showing more "recipes" for other shades I've mixed soon, so if this shade wasn't your cup of tea, hopefully there'll be more to interest and inspire you!
