A new video shows how lipsticks are made

In the clip, filmed for stylist Rachel Zoe's The Zoe Report, factory workers were seen hard at work from the moment they mixed the pigments to the lipstick being inserted into the tube.

First the vegetable base is mixed with the pigment to create the Bite Beauty formula, and then inserted into a machine with rollers which smoothe out the mixture in order to create the lipstick's creamy texture.

The various shades are then melted in order to create a wide range of colours, and can be seen being stored in separate beakers, the colours already vibrant. This formula is then poured into the metal mold into the iconic cylindrical shape, before being placed inside a freezer to set for just 15 minutes.


Once the mixture has cooled, the product is then inserted into the tubes – and voila, a brand new lipstick is created!
