I've been wanting a nice teal lip colour for a long time now since seeing the Glamour Doll Eyes lip image here. I know Illamasqua just came out with a teal lipstick Apocalips but it looks too muddy green to me and I don't need an entire lipstick, just a bit of Lip Tar. This isn't a shade I'll even wear out unless I had a darn good reason so I just wanted a bit. I think I made enough to last me through 20 applications because for these pics I just took the toothpick I was using after I scraped it off the pot, wiped it on my lips then grabbed a tiny bit more off the side of the pot with the brush and tadaaaaaaa, NO FEATHERING THIS TIME! much.
So for teal I used Rx and kept adding tiny bits of Traffic until it no longer looked completely blue and then added some Feathering to lighten it. Added a tiny bit more of the yellow and then more white. I'll show you my hand at then end so you can see just how many times I kept adding! It looked purdy.
I think it could use a teeny bit more Traffic but I don't want to turn it green and have to add more blue to even it out and have a redonkulous amount of teal lip tar :/
