Bite Beauty Watercolor Lip Gloss Library

Hey y'all.

I picked up Bite Beauty's Watercolor Lip Gloss Library during Sephora'a VIB sale last week.  


Sephora'a Blurb:
"What it is:
A limited-edition range Composed of 12 soft shades inspired by the ethereal beauty of a watercolor palette; each sheer gloss provides a beautiful translucent wash of color and alluring shine. 

What it does:
Rich in antioxidants, nutrients, fruit extracts, and seed oils, each glossy, luminous shade is infused with hydrating properties and a sweep of color to leave lips lush and supple. In keeping with the feeling of an artist’s palette, these shades have been designed to wear alone or layer. Each shade is formulated with a specific level of pigment to ensure the collection is wearable." (Sephora.com)



My Thoughts: 
Girl........... It's complicated! Here's why. The description above is correct; the glosses do provide a translucent wash of color and high shine to the lips. 


So what's the problem?
After actually playing with the glosses and trying each color on my lips, I can't say that it's worth the price. 

This set has gotten some pretty bad reviews on sephora.com, but most people are complaining about lack of pigmentation and the sticky texture of the glosses. Well...... they are called "watercolors" for a reason, AND they  have the SAME sticky formula as the  $12 mini Bite glosses that Sephora sells, so that wasn't a surprise. 

However, although I wasn't surprised at the lack of opacity and "stickiness," there are WAY better glosses for this price at Sephora.

I say skip this, and get the Dior or LancĂ´me gloss that you've been wanting. 



Availability: In stores and online at Sephora 

Price: $49

Splurge or Skip: Skip it, girl. Lol 

Let me know what you think.

Hey y'all.   

It's been a while, huh......lol.

BUT......... I loved this "Best of" Collection from Becca so much that I decided to post swatches while it's still available at Ulta


This set allows you to try 4 of Becca's most popular products (in cute travel sizes) for only $36. (Girl....... The full size Skin Perfectors are $38 alone!)

Becca's Best of Collection includes:

-Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in "Rose Gold"

- Shimmering Skin Perfector Spotlight in "Opal"

-Beach Tint in "Guava"

-Beach Tint Shimmer Soufflé in "Watermelon/Moonstone"


The products come in very generous sizes, and honestly at $36, I think this is a steal and a great way to get familiar with the brand!

Black Radiance Soft Focus Finishing Powder

Ok, listen. If you don't have this face powder yet, go get it. 


Black Radiance's Soft Focus Finishing Powder is my favorite makeup product at the moment. 

It's soooooo pretty and blends seamlessly into the skin. There are 3 different shades to choose from, so brown girls of every color shouldn't have too much of a problem finding the right match. 

I use this more as a foundation than as an actual finishing powder. The coverage is sheer to light, but you may be able to build it up to medium coverage. It lasts well and stays beautifully matte throughout the day. 

And........ Girl, it's only about $7.00 at Walmart. Just go get it! Lol 

This "Milk Chocolate" shade is perfect on my complexion. 


 

I love it so much that I even got a backup! Just in case................ Lol

Let me know what you think.

Small Sephora Haul

Hey y'all! 

I just thought I'd pop in to show a quick haul from Sephora. 

*sidenote* I put myself on a "low buy" at the beginning of the year to try to save money, so I haven't really been buying a lot of makeup. AND............ Truthfully, I've been in a bit of of "blogging rut," meaning I just haven't been feeling like it. Lol

BUT ANYWAY, here's the haul.

 
Sephora
Sephora brand matte foundation powder in #58 "Spice" (turned out to be about 2 shades lighter than my skin tone so I gave it to my mom. Lol)

Benefit "Roller Lash" mascara

Bite dual ended lipstick in "Tangerine" and "Lingonberry" (both of these colors are SO BOMB! I may even get a back up to make sure it lasts through the summer.)

Sephora beauty insiders birthday gift from Nars. 

I purchased the "Roller Lash" mascara during Benefit's event at Sephora, so I also recieved the free gifts with purchase. 

 
Benefit gifts with purchase:
Handheld mirror (super cute!!!!)
Lolli Balm hydrating tinted lip balm 

That's it!!! 

Let me know what you think!
