Here we are with For the Love of Custom, where we share our love of all things customised and personalised! Since Exodus Wear is a company that specialises in creating custom outerwear, it’s no surprise that we also want to shine a light on the growing mass-customisation trend. We’ll be featuring different companies that are at the cutting edge of customisation.


For something a little different, we’re featuring The Lip Lab this time! The Lip Lab is the first of its kind in Australia. It gives people the opportunity to create their own lipstick and foundation shades to perfectly match their needs. What’s different about The Lip Lab is that it’s all in store. Most of the other companies that we’ve featured have only been available or have an extensive internet presence.

First, you’ll need to make an appointment at The Lip Lab with one of the professional colour consultants. They’ll ask you what you’re looking for and help you to mix your own colour.

Once you’ve chosen your colours, flavours and finish, The Lip Lab professionals will then proceed to make your very own lipstick (or whatever else you choose) on the spot!

A lipstick costs $65, with additives and flavours an extra $3, which is pretty reasonable considering the whole experience you get and being satisfied with having the perfect shade.

You can order lip glosses, nail polish, lipstick, foundation and other make up products as well. You can also choose the flavour, container, add SPF and really anything else you could possibly think of.

If you want to find out more about the process and see the lipsticks being made, this video is informative as Brii takes her camera along to her consultation. Helpful if you want to see how it’s actually done!

There are similar companies all over the world, including Bite Lip Lab in America and Canada. So if you don’t live in Australia, don’t worry. However, if you are in Australia, there are plenty of Lip Lab’s all around the country. There are usually multiple in every state, including some rural centres such as Ballarat, Victoria and other non-capital cities. So don’t worry! There’s sure to be one near you.

The idea of having custom made lipsticks created before your very eyes is such a fun and great idea. Not only does it solve the problem of never being able to find the perfect shade for you but it’s also such a great experience.

We make custom jackets, which is why we love customisation so much! You can get started on creating a customised satin bomber by clicking the link here. It’s so exciting seeing more and more customisation being available for customers.

We look forward to working with you!
