Target Beauty Box

Hey y'all!!!

I thought I would break the ice by posting a few quick pics of September's Target Beauty Box. 

Unfortunately, I doubt that this particular box is still available, however, I still thought this post would be useful in giving y'all a good idea of what to expect in future boxes.

Unlike other beauty boxes, the Target Beauty Box is not a subscription; you just go to and order it when it becomes available.  I don't know if you can set up alerts to notify you when they're on sale, but if you follow a lot of Beauty Bloggers and "Instagrammers" you'll know..... lol

But you have to act FAST! These boxes go quick! lol

Bite Beauty Opal Creme Lipstick: Review and Pics

Hey y'all.

The release of Bite Beauty's Opal Creme Lipstick is the first time I've been excited about a new beauty product in a LONGGGG time! lol

This lipstick immediately caught my attention because, well, its WHITE, and what makeup lover doesn't need a white lipstick in their collection?! Right???!

The color is actually an Ultraviolet Opal that has a fairly strong tint of purple/lilac when swatched.  Here's what Sephora's website says about it:

"What it does:
BITE Beauty’s Opal Crème Lipstick is designed to be applied on its own for an iridescent finish, or apply top of any lip color to add an ultraviolet dimension. Its infusion of organic fruit butters leaves creamy texture that conditions and nourishes lips with every use. Use this lipstick as a highlighter for a sheer, iridescent glow."

Overall, I like it! The color is definitely sheer upon first application, but can be intensified to a pretty ultraviolet, iridescent, purple/lilac shade (uhmmm that's a mouthful, lol). Also, if you want to spice up your everyday lip colors, Bite's Opal glides smoothly over any lipstick or lip GLOSS

The only Con that I have about Opal is that it does leave a visible white cast on MY lips if I apply it alone, so I usually ONLY wear this lipstick over a really sheer pink lip balm (such as Elf's Gotta Glow Lip Tint) or over other lipsticks and glosses.
