* I want to note that the ombre lip was not achieved by just adding lipstick on top of lipstick. It involved blending each lipstick before applying the next. Also, the intensity of the lipstick is easily lost, therefor it is crucial to do this look in steps by adding little by little with every lipstick applied. Clean up after the ombre lip is completed is important*
