I hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving!! I had a great few days at home with my family and I loved every minute. Now- back to the blogs! :) One of my top holiday lip kits featured in my Top Holiday Makeup Palettes & Gift Sets video was this mini lipstick set from Bite Beauty. It's called The Lip Kit and costs $38 at Sephora. There are four double-ended lipsticks, and each lipstick is .07 ounces. I'm sure you could mix these duos to create even more shades! Several of you asked to see a post showing what these lipsticks actually look like on the lips- so here you go! :)
First- a little background... ever since trying a trio of Bite lip products in this blog post back in August, I knew I wanted to try more. The formula of the Luminous Creme lipsticks is just incredible, and they are loaded with good-for-you ingredients. Since women truly do CONSUME so much lipstick in their lifetime, Bite uses food-grade ingredients. One of those ingredients is resveratrol, which is an antioxidant in red wine. I love how rich and moisturizing these lipsticks feel... without also feeling heavy or TOO thick on the lips. That's a huge reason why I chose this kit as one of my favorites for the season- but I also love the way this kit is put together. You're getting a really fabulous color selection, and I love the fact that all of these colors are part of Bite's regular line- not limited edition. So if you fall in love with any of these shades, you can pick up a full size. Also- the colors are SO saturated and creamy, with just the perfect amount of shine. This kit is definitely the ideal product for a lipstick lover!
Pepper (Dusty rose) and Apricot (Warm red)
Rose (Classic pink) and Palomino (Bright magenta)
Musk (Brownish pink) and Pomegranate (Cherry red)
Retsina (Nude pink) and Mulberry (Wine)
I don't know if you noticed this (I didn't until I put this post together and really looked at the diagram on the back of the packaging), but the lipsticks on the left side of the duos are all a bit more natural, and the really bold and colorful shades are on the right. I think all of those brighter shades are just striking. Mulberry is a favorite for me, but could Pomegranate be any more perfect? And how about Palomino?! And as for the softer shades- I like them because while they're lighter, they're not SHEER. Retsina is light in tone but still very full color. And Rose is so fresh! I could go on and on, but I just wanted to show you what all of those lipsticks looked like in case you were interested in the kit- or if only one or two interest you, they're all available individually.
