But inside, they have stations set up where you can customize any lipstick color imaginable...in about SEVEN MINUTES.

There's no time limit, so you can spend as long as you want blending colors together. But if you know what you're looking for, the whole process can be done in less than ten minutes.

The next step feels a lot like a science experiment. Basically, the technician makes the mixture and melts down the ingredients into a liquid.

Once they're melted, the ingredients are mixed at a high speed in a centrifuge so that the mixture becomes homogenous.
