Nothing new but it’s interesting to see how you can do it. For those of you who lives in areas were you can harvest the cochineal bug for free, wouldn’t it be great to make a present for your female of choice? :D

I can think of a lot of ‘interesting’ ways to advertise such lipsticks..but it may not be the best ways, if selling as much as possible is the goal.. :D
