So how on Earth did I not know about this sorcery sooner!?! I found out from NYX's facebook page that Milk can be used as a base on the lips so of course learning that its lip safe I instantly used it to make my lipsticks lighter! All I did was put NYX Milk evenly all over my lips, then applied whatever color I desired over top and it lightened it significantly. Here I will show you what Milk looks like mixed with my two Revlon Matte Balm Stains!
I tried it out with Shameless and Sultry, two darker colors that I was very sad to have to retire once spring and summer finally arrive. Well I no longer have to worry about that! :D
The original color is on the left with the color plus NYX Milk being on the right.
And here I am wearing Shameless plus Milk. It makes such a beautiful lavender color.
And here is Sultry. With Milk it transforms into a nice my lip but better shade.
Overall, I am ecstatic that I discovered I could do this and I can't wait to see what other dark shades I can make more springy!
P.S. I graduate college today holy crap.
