Bite Beauty’s Liquified Lipstick

Liquid lipstick has become synonymous with matte lips, but that’s not necessarily the finish it alway has. ‘Liquid lipstick’ just means the formula comes in a liquid, instead of a bullet. It can be glossy, satin, matte, what have you. As many of us are already aware, matte liquid lipsticks look fly, but leave your lips dry. *I totally didn’t mean to rhyme there, but … Continue reading Bite Beauty’s Liquified Lipstick

Urban Decay’s New Vice Lipstick: Business Behind the Beauty

As you’ve likely seen, Urban Decay has released their new line of lipsticks, with over 100 shades in 4 types of finishes. All I can say is, WOW. Well done, UD. Well done. While beauty bloggers abound are sampling, swatching, and raving about this magazine full of sweet lipstick bullets, they aren’t focusing on this line introduction as a fascinating business move by UD. Urban … Continue reading Urban Decay’s New Vice Lipstick: Business Behind the Beauty

REVIEW: ColourPop Cosmetics Ultra Satin Lip

ColourPop Cosmetics, the brand made famous by Instagram, has recently released their latest product innovation: Ultra Satin Lip. Before I get ahead of myself, let me give you some context. ColourPop is the self-described “fast fashion” brand of the cosmetics world and beloved by celebrities abound (I’d mention Kylie Jenner, but I don’t want to. So I won’t). With eyeshadows and lipsticks around $5 and … Continue reading REVIEW: ColourPop Cosmetics Ultra Satin Lip

What’s bigger than this release is that it’s replacing their Luminous Créme Lipstick line.

Estée Edit: Estée Lauder Wants to be Cool Again

When you hear Estée Lauder, you either think 1) I used that when my husband was coming home from war, or 2) My grandma used that when my grandpa was coming home from war. For the most part, Millennials, Gen Z, basically anyone under 60 leaves the beauty aisle without filling up their basket with the gilded, plastic, retro-but-not-in-a-cool-way, Estée-Lauder items. It’s NOT that they’re … Continue reading Estée Edit: Estée Lauder Wants to be Cool Again

Bite Beauty: The Lip Lab Experience

With Bite Beauty launching their new core collection of lipsticks, called Amuse Bouche, they will be forcing their former Luminous Créme lipsticks to shuffle off this mortal coil into the abyss of discontinued beauty products. As Amuse Bouche launches, however, the Bite Beauty Lip Lab in NYC is still currently whipping up custom tubes of lipsticks using the OG Luminous Créme formula. I was lucky … Continue reading Bite Beauty: The Lip Lab Experience

Bite Beauty’s New ‘Amuse Bouche’ Collection

If you’re as obsessed with Bite Beauty as I am, you may have already heard that they are phasing out their OG line of Luminous Creme Lipsticks…. I’ll allow that some time to sink in. The beloved shades that adorned our lips for the past few years will be going away forever. Why, you ask? For whatever reason, be it marketing, product development, or just … Continue reading Bite Beauty’s New ‘Amuse Bouche’ Collection

REVIEW: Bite Beauty’s ‘Best Bite Rewind’

I love Bite. Always have and probably always will, which is why I’m giving them a pass on releasing this kit. Don’t get me wrong. It’s fabulous, and I love it. I just feel that it’s a bit of a cop out, seeing as it’s the exact same kit they released last year. Hence the name Best Bite REWIND. Nice framing of the language there, … Continue reading REVIEW: Bite Beauty’s ‘Best Bite Rewind’

REVIEW: Sephora Favorites ‘Give Me More Lip’

I have to say, I was pumped when I first heard about this set. A mix of full-size and mini lippies of various brands from Sephora? I’m down. While $59 isn’t exactly pocket change, it’s actually a great value for all the product you’re getting. This set it already sold out online, so you’ll have to scrounge around in-store to see if any still exist. … Continue reading REVIEW: Sephora Favorites ‘Give Me More Lip’
