My birthday is on Christmas Eve and I’m getting ready to take a long relaxing break. I’ve decided to end my holiday series on a high note with one of my favorite brands – Bite Beauty. If you saw my lipstick post a few weeks ago then you’ve already read my rave reviews about the brand but if not I’ll recap why their smooth, velvety finishes and rich pigments should be a staple in your makeup bag.
Bite products are handcrafted in small batches using a low heat process to ensure that the omega oils, vitamins, butters and nutrients are fresh and well preserved. Each formula is enriched with a luscious blend of moisturizers and skin conditioners to keep your pout supple, and protected without compromising on color.
Winter is a beautiful season but frigid temperatures can cause peeling, chapping and uncomfortable dryness. The Agave Lip Balm ($20.00) soothes on contact with a blend of rare Madagascar vanilla, shea butter, olive oil, jojoba, pomegranate and many other natural ingredients. The creamy balm glides on evenly and coats lips in a blanket of nourishing hydration to restore, heal and repair. It smells delicious, feels amazing and is free of parabens, sulfates and phthalates making it a perfect travel essential and a great primer.
For a complete lip makeover I use the Agave Sugar Lip Scrub ($20.00) before moisturizing with the lip balm. This sweet exfoliant is enriched with pineapple enzymes and a variety of exotic oils that gently buff away rough skin and leave lips soft, smooth, conditioned and rejuvenated. It preps your pout for flawless lipstick application and keeps skin healthy all winter long. Together these two treatments make an incredible gift set.
The Amuse Bouche Liquefied Lip Set ($26.00) is a makeup lovers dream and if you haven’t tried the collection this is a good starting point. The box comes with 4 shades - Braised (rich berry), Flambé (bright tangerine) Demi-Glace (deep chocolate brown) and Whip (soft nude). I like the variety in this small kit, you get 2 bright shades that are flattering on all complexions and two neutrals – one for medium to deep skin and the other for fair.
Despite the tubes being so tiny, the applicator is a good size and the color glides on vibrant, full coverage and creamy with a hint of glossy shine. The formula is comprised of natural elements so the lipstick has a waxy scent (which I don’t mind) and the size makes them very portable. You can slip them into a pocket or small party clutch and the color lasts for hours.
The Champagne Discovery Set ($39.00) is a holiday trio for the eyes, lips and cheeks featuring a curated selection of bestsellers. The Cashew Multistick is a gorgeous nude even for people like me who don’t wear neutral lip colors very often and it comes with a matching liner for neatness and precision. The stick has a creamy matte finish which you can apply to the cheeks as a warm blush and on the eyes to tie the look together. I love the Champagne Pearl Crème Lip Gloss – the metallic finish is brilliant and shimmery for instant holiday glam. I use it to highlight the middle of my lips for an ombré effect and it looks amazing against deep purples and matte red. This set makes a wonderful gift for friends, family and secret Santa.
