img_6588

Hello everyone, happy Wednesday, and happy hump day, I hope everyone is having a great week so far. I keep telling myself to stay up to date, and yes I keep buying new makeup, and beauty products, so now I have a ton of catching up to do. The holiday collections are all releasing, so it’s pretty fun, and exciting!! I LOVE holiday makeup sets, I can’t resist, as I’m sure many of you can’t as well, oh the temptation!! 

EOS is a great drugstore lip balm brand, you may know of them, they are pretty darn popular. I have about 20 of them so far, and really didn’t need more, but how can I resist the new shimmer ones? I can’t, and I wanted to review them for you all as well. They are packed with a beautiful shimmer, that adds the perfect sparkle to your lips, okay my lips, and I can’t get enough of them, I really have been loving them so far! I have always been a lip product kind of gal, something about all the different types of lip products, that give so many different looks that I can’t resist!! Lips are in constant need of attention, so they are always needing something on them! my favorite lip products, or type has always been lipgloss, I love the gloss look, funny fact when matte lips were all the rage, okay they still are, lol, I was like what??? NO!!! lol, funny I know, I am getting more used to them, and do wear the look on occasional, although, still not my favorite. I also have always loved shimmer, ever since I was a little girl, my lips had to be shimmery, or sparkly, thanks bonne bell lipsmack, the addiction started young!! Anyways, with living in the pacific northwest the weather can change so drastically from day to day, so my lip products change as well, and they change often, which I don’t mind 🙂

My Review: 

I love EOS, as a brand, and their lip balms. I love how the ingredients are quality, and good for your lips, and the environment as well. They smell amazing, and truly are moisturizing for your lips. The shimmer I was really excited about because I already love the regular eos, and I have a ton of them, all different scents/ flavors. The clear balm gives the perfect amount of moisture, and they glide on effortlessly, the shape of the balm is a great idea, no wonder why so many other brands try and copy the design! I love these new shimmer balms, they add a slight sparkle, and the pink one adds a tiny amount of pink without being overbearing, which is nice. The scents are nice as well, sweet, but not floral. I really like the new packaging on these as well, it makes them feel more fancy. The price on these are around $2 more each, but I feel it’s very worth the price increase for what your getting!  I recommend these for sure, they work great, and will be great to have for the coming winter months, and the holidays! Would make a great stocking stuffer!

Bite Beauty Opal Lipstick & Lip Gloss Review & Swatches

FullSizeRender 4

Hi there lovies, I first want to apologize for missing tester Tuesday this week. As some of you may have seen my post about the sephora epic rewards, it sure was a amazingly popular post, wow, that was my most visited post EVER, so awesome! Well, as you could have guessed by my “updates” yes I pulled an all nighter, and all day until the rewards were released at 11:55 PST, I know, I know, so stupid of me to do so, but I really felt like I could get something, ummm ya no sadly. That was seriously the most epic fail I have EVER seen no joke, what a total waste of time, and sleep for that matter, I was so disappointed in not only sephora, but in my self for wasting so much valuable effort on it. Oh well, life goes on, I am definitely thankful for all the love that was shown to my blog those few days, that’s for sure, I really couldn’t believe it, definitely know now that people are looking, and reading, which is an incredible feeling 🙂 So thank you so much! So long story short, I ended up pulling that damn overnighter, working, and staying up half the next night, so that left no time for tester Tuesday, I was seriously a zombie because I was so sleep deprived, it was really bad. I am still very much trying to catch up on sleep. So I apologize, and wanted to get something up for today, even though it is later in the afternoon that it’s posting. I hope one of you were able to get one those epic rewards, I really do, but I am a tad jealous of those who did! I am sure I will find them on eBay soon lol, always hope! 

This post is going to be a good one, I can feel it, I hope you all enjoy it as well. I posted about these beautiful lippies from bite in one of my recent new makeup at sephora posts, and I saw them, and knew I had to have them!!!! I seriously have an obsession with anything irridecent, or pearl like, I don’t know why, maybe it’s because of the ever lasting love of the little mermaid movie, and Ariel, wait, yes I am sure that’s what it is. I have always loved these types of colors, I think that’s why I am so obsessed, and in love with shimmery eyeshadows as well, why wear matte when you can sparkle, is my moto, I honestly never wore matte eyeshadows up until about 2 years ago, crazy right? Opals have always been another favorite, for my 16th birthaday my parents bought me a opal ring, from that very moment I was in love! I am actually wearing a different opal ring right now, I have worn it every day since I bought it 2 years ago, I found it at goodwill for $10 such a great, hand made jewelry find, I love it! 

So, I knew I had to have these, maybe not keep both (I returned the lip gloss, because I have one exactly like it from bare minerals, felt like I really didn’t need both) yeah me, lol. The lipstick was mine though, I had never seen anything like that before, and that it applies so beautifully, it’s like putting magic or fairy dust on your lips, no joke! You can wear it plain or put over your favorite lipstick, it works in so many different ways, that’s what is so great about it, and a must have for anyone in my opinion. It is so definitely worth the try, go and swatch it at least, I guarantee you will immediately fall in love. Bite beauty is one of my favorite brands, I have many of their lipsticks, and lip glosses, the formula is so non sticky, and applies perfectly to the lips. These both were the same exact expectations, and formula I would expect from bite beauty, they are definitely one of my top 5 make up brands! The color when applied is so mysterious, and light, but adds that hint of pearl, and opal color that I have never seen anywhere else in a makeup product (well, except in an eyeshadow) simply amazing! I should have swatched them on my lips, sorry about that!! I didn’t even think about that until now!
