The colours really pop in this soap, which has been coloured using a freestyle pour technique and showcases the stark contrasts between the different green micas.

Making your own lipstick can seem daunting at first, but once you’ve made your first lipstick, you’ll want to keep making more!

Inspired by the name of the soap fragrance, Love Spell, this soap features plenty of magic with a gorgeous magenta swirl in its centre and gold swirling on top. The techniques used here are drop swirling and mica swirl painting.
