1. No more waste

I’ve always hated to throw out lipstick when I could see more color in the bottom of the tube. Now, I don’t have to, and neither do you. Use the back of the brush to scoop out any remaining lip color. Use every bit of color that you pay for.

2. Carry six colors

I don’t like to rummage around in the bottom of my purse or backpack to find the lip color I’m looking for. With the petal palette, I can find my lip color easily and change it if I wish instead of being stuck with the color I remembered to bring along. Fill the empty palette with colors uniquely you. It’s great for travel, too!

3. Mix your own colors

I love this feature. I used to paint with acrylics and my favorite part was mixing my own colors. I loved to create something new from a combination of colors. With the mixing well, you’re the artist. Blend two, three or four colors into unique combinations. Add a little lip gloss into the mix.

The petal palette story

I worked as a model in Japan in the 1980s. All of the models had lip color compacts for carrying our own colors. Our compacts were smaller versions of those used by make-up stylists for our shoots. Through the years, I’ve missed that compact. I didn’t know where to find an empty lipstick palette. With my oldest daughter entering college, I decided that making and selling that dear compact might be a way of helping to pay for her education. What you see on this website is an improved version of the product I used in Japan. I’ve considered design and functionality and come up with a result that is both beautiful and useful.

Money for charity

Okay, so this probably isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when you think about a beauty product. As I said above, I started this project to help with college expenses. We’ve managed so far, but it got me thinking, wouldn’t it be great if I could use some of the profits to help other children have a better life? That’s the idea behind 5% to charity – 5% of profits will go to Save The Children. It’s an organization that serves the most vulnerable among us, our children, both in the United States and worldwide.
