Bite Beauty Lip Products - Luminous Crème Lipstick Swatches and Review

I could not wait until Sephora shipped my most recent order.  Ever since I've seen Bite products on their website I have been dying to try them.  Bite is a new brand and so far all products are for lips.  What makes them unique is the super antioxidant, resveratrol, is in their formula.  Read more about resveratrol and it's benefits here.

From Sephora's Website:

"This product is free of synthetics, polybutenes, and petroleum byproducts and made exclusively with lip nurturing food-grade ingredients that are healthy enough to eat.  Each lipstick contains the amount of resveratrol found in five glasses of red wine."

Sounds amazing!  First product I am reviewing is their Luminous Crème Lipstick.  This retails for $24 USD.  Their are tons of colors to pick from, but today I am reviewing Shiraz (Soft Plum) and Vouvray (Ballet Pink).

Please excuse my blotchy skin, I am having issues!
Overall, these lipsticks are great!  The formula is creamy and the pigment is full coverage.  The lipstick was really smooth and moisturizing.  My favorite is Vouvray -  It really is 'Ballet Pink' and it doesn't wash you out or look chalky.  Shiraz is a soft plum that is very buildable. There are tons of shades available and I can't wait to try more.

These were purchased by me.


Benefit/Sephora VIB Gift with Purchase

As you all know, I profess my love for Sephora on a weekly basis. This week, they have given me one more thing to love, in the form of a GWP for VIB members (free gift with $35 purchase). It is a deluxe sample set of the B.right "ocean-inspired" brightening line by Benefit Cosmetics.

The set includes deluxe samples of: Triple Performing Facial Emulsion, It's Potent! Eye Cream, Foamingly Clean Facial Wash, all tucked into a cute "beachy-print" box. This new line has the most adorable packaging (the bottles all have little raised bumps on them, that resemble a sea urchin, and the glass reminds me of sea glass, we find at the beach). I have tried the eye cream and emulsion so far, and I really like them. The bottles alone have me longing for vacation......I have a feeling I'll be back for more!!!!

Note:  Laura tried to add this to her online purchase and it said it was sold out!  Natasha got her's in store and had no problem.  There was lots of stock available too!

GWP was purchased by me.


Preview of Estee Lauder GWP at Nordstrom

A-MAZING! Estee Lauder fans, here is a preview of their amazing GWP event, at Nordstrom.

This promo starts April 14, but if you pre-order, you get so much more!!
So, if you spend over $32.50, you will receive a cute floral cosmetic bag, a moisturizer and eye cream (please excuse the writing on the card, my sale's associate was telling me which one is good for my skin), you get to choose your shade of Double Wear Light Foundation--one of my HG's for summer!, and you also get to choose a lipstick shade and eye palette. If you spend over $60.00, you get an additional cosmetic bag, a mascara sample, a black Eye Pencil, Gentle Eye Makeup Remover, and your shade of Double Wear Concealer. All this alone is a really great deal, especially if you wear Double Wear. If you pre-order, you also get one free additional gift item, so I choose a second Double Wear Foundation. This is a great chance to try some of the new Pure Color Lipstick shades (which are so gorgeous). Have I mentioned how much I LOVE GWP events at Nordstrom! Check back in April for more photos of the GWP and my new Lip Colors!!

GWP selections may vary between stores. This GWP event info is from Nordstrom at the Streets of Southpoint, Durham, NC.
