Bite Beauty Matte Crème Lip Crayon | Review

Recently, I was very fortunate to receive three shades of the Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayons. They were sent to me by Influenster for review purposes!

Yes, these were free, but in no way, shape or form does that mean I will bend my opinions. I am an extremely honest person and if I don’t like something, you best believe that you will know about that.

I received three shades: Cava, Red Velvet and Glace.

I used to be in love with Mac lipsticks back in the day, but for a while I have been obsessed with liquid lipsticks and that is what I usually reach for, but sometimes it’s nice to get back to basics.

These creme lip crayons very creamy and moisturizing.They just glide on and moisturize all day long. Now, the formula will not last you all day, you will have to reapply, but your lips will be smoother than a baby’s bum. I actually really love the formula because of how gentle it is on my lips and of how matte it is. I am a matte girl for life!

The lip crayons are made with orange peel wax and antioxidant properties of resveratrol. This is why they are water-resistant and long wearing.

I did enjoy the lighter shades more than the dark for a couple of reasons. The lip crayons come in  pen shaped applicator. It has a pointed tip which makes it easier to apply without having to use a brush. Now this works better with the lighter shades because you don’t have to be as precise. With the darker shades, I did have to go back in with a makeup wipe and clean up the edges. The darker shade also did not match with my skin tone. I tend to go for deeper reds, vs more true reds (which this was a more of a true red).

The lip crayons lasted about 4  to 5 hours, with minimal eating and drinking. Since these are a creamy formula, they don’t flake off or bleed. When you eat or drink they just swipe away.

Here are some swatches of the three shades.

Cava:

Red Velvet:

Glace:

Overall, for a lipstick, I would give these an 8 out of a 10.

 

I did really like them and will for sure continue using them!

Have you ever used Bite Beauty lipsticks? What do you think??

Anastasia Beverly Hills Eye Shadow/Lipstick | Review

I think this is very quickly becoming one of my favorite brands. ABH has outstanding eyebrow products and now they are venturing out into highlighters, eye shadows, contouring creams and lipsticks. Since I love their eyebrow products and highlighters, I decided to order a single eye shadow and liquid lipsticks and see if these products can pass my test.

Can I just begin with the processing and shipping? Yes, just yes!! My order was processed in a day and I received the package in 3 business days. Now this makes me happy!!

EYESHADOW:

I order an eye shadow single in Henna. Just look at how beautiful this shade it! It is so pigmented and blends so well! I am in love! Thank you ABH for creating this color! For the biggest color payoff, get the amount you want on the brush, spritz with MAC’s Fix+ and apply to the eyelid. It comes out to be the perfect coppery/red color.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Shadow in Henna

Here is the swatch on my skin. It looks a little orange, to get the foiled look, use a spritz of MAC Fix+.

LIQUID LIPSTICK:

For the lipstick I ordered a Liquid Lipstick in Pure Hollywood. This is the perfect nude! I have been looking for the shade that fits my fair skin and after years of looking, I finally found it! I am so darn happy! The formula is so creamy, it dries matte but does not dry my lips out at all which is a huge plus! It wears very well all day long and requires very little touching up.

Liquid Lipstick-Pure Hollywood

Here is the swatch on my skin. It has a pink undertone which is why it’s the perfect nude. It’s also not too light which is nice, since lighter shades end up washing me out and making my lips look strange.

Here is the look I created with both products!

New makeup HEAVEN! | Review

IMG_3189

Yesterday was the best day ever! I happened to stop by Sephora while I was down at Coconut Point. Let me tell you, this Sephora is huge!!! They have every single brand that you could image in the actual store. In a couple of weeks they will be getting the whole Anastasia Beverly Hills makeup collection…I am so excited to be able to actually try out the lipsticks before buying them and figuring it that the color is not the right shade for me! It really is the small things in life that make us happy right? 🙂

I picked up a few items that I have been dying to try out!! The DR. Jart+ Blackhead Strips, the First Aid Beauty Eye Duty Triple Remedy, Anastasia lipstick, the Ultra HD foundation and the GLOW KIT (I have been in obsessed with this bad boy ever since I got it)!!! I have to say I am loving every single product that I bought! I am really really pleasantly impressed since I tend to be picky! Below is the little breakdown of the product, how I use it and if you click on the picture, you will be taken to a link where you can purchase them.

  • DR. Jart+ Pore Master Patch

s1622406-main-hero

These blackhead strips are everything! I have had issues with really stubborn blackheads on my nose and chin ever since I was a teenager. No product seemed to be able to help me until I found these babies! Oh my gosh! They are perfect. In each pack there are 2 strips. One is for the actual blackheads and the other is for minimizing the clean pores. Use these after you take a long shower (this opens up the pores), places the strip on your nose, let it dry for about 10 minutes and peel off. Peel this off really slowly from the side and try to pull up towards your eyebrows. They are quite pricey but totally worth it!

  • First Aid Beauty Eye Duty Triple Remedy (Light/Medium)

s1600162-main-heroI have been looking for some kind of product for underneath my eyes for ages. I tend to have puffy eyes and bags under them no matter how much rest I get. This cream and applicator is amazing! It has a tint to it which brightens the eyes on top of the other ingredients which depuff’s the eye. The best part of this is the roller which is always super cold! So much faster and convenient than using a cold spoon which does the same trick (awakes the eye).

 

  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick (American Doll)

s1786870-main-heroI have been a hard ride or die fan for the Kat Von D liquid lipsticks but this may have beat that! The consistency and texture of this is beautiful! It feels so nice on the lips and really doesn’t dry out! The best part of this lipstick is the pigmentation. With Kat Von D lipsticks, you have to reapply about three time to have an even colored shade, but with this lipstick, it just takes one time! I am really excited to try out the other colors!

 

  • Make Up Forever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Stick Foundation (125)

s1713189-main-heroCould this replace my current holy grail foundation? It very well could! I love full coverage foundations and this is absolutely that! It is very velvety and pigmented which is the perfect combo! If you have any imperfections to hide, this may be the best product for you! I love how creamy it is because very little gets sucked up by the brush when blending it out. Really outstanding product. If you want to do cream contouring, this is probably the easiest product to use. Just pick up a shade darker than your actual shade and apply on the cheekbones, underneath the jaw and by the hairline on your forehead and blend it out!

  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit (Gleam)

s1790617-main-heroI have been so excited to try these highlighters out and boy am I in love?!??!?! This is about 40 dollars, which is the biggest bang for your buck. You get four different shades which you can use depending on the look you are going for or based on how tan/pale you are. I did purchase the gleam kit (this is for lighter skin types) and ahh these highlighters are so beautiful! They are so creamy and blend in so seamlessly on the skin. This palette is very versatile as well, you can use this for eye shadows too! Woop woop! Now I don’t need to buy any sparkly eye shadows! Also, a huge bonus for this palette is the fact that the pods inside are replaceable. If you use one up or want to switch out for a different color, you sure can instead of having to buy a whole new kit.

I would say my shopping spree was successful! Have you ever tried any of these products out? Did you love them? Comment below and please subscribe!

XOXO, Ruta.

Ever since I was a little girl I have loved makeup! At the age of ten I couldn’t even walk out of the house without some lip gloss on.

Over the years I have tried out hundreds of products, of which some were successes and some were miserable failures. I am happy to say that I have found my ride or die products, at least for now! I mean it only took me 21 years of my life!! Below you will find the name, a description of the product and how to use it, and if you click on the image, you will be redirected to a site where you can purchase it (they will be listed in the order that I usually apply them).

  • MAC Prime+ Prep Fix +

mac_sku_MW5K01_640x600_0
Apply this before the primer. Allow it to dry into the skin and then proceed. You can also use this after you have set your foundation with a setting powder to prevent the make up from looking too dry. This gives your make up a more natural finish. This also works wonders when it comes to eye shadows. If you have a sparkly shadow that you want to have more of a pop to it, spray a little bit of this on your brush, dip it in the eye shadow and apply on the eye.

  • COVER FX Natural Finish Oil Free Foundation

s1487487-main-hero

Foundations are pretty simple. After priming your face, apply a small amount of this to your face, a little really does go a long way with this one. It is oil free therefore it is unlikely to break you out. It is pretty full coverage and makes the skin look flawless. If you have anything you want to hide, a pimple or some freckles…you cannot go wrong using this product.

 

  • Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette

s1654110-main-hero

Use this to highlight under the eyes, under the mouth, and above the eyebrows. This works as a great setting powder for under the eyes!! It is an amazing and creamy consistency which makes contouring and even bronzing a breeze. I do suggest getting the Kat Von D brush which has two ends, one for highlighting and the other for contouring!

 

  • BECCA Becca x Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfector® Pressed – Champagne Pop

s1721240-main-hero
FAVORITE HIGHLIGHTER EVER! This may be because I am obsessed with Jaclyn Hill, but it is a beautiful peachy tone perfect for my skin tone which fairly light. Use this to highlight and even as a shadow! Just brush some on the high points of your cheeks and in the corner of your eyes and BOOM, you are good to go!

 

  • Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

s1533439-main-hero
This mascara is a little hard to work with, yes, it’s a bit messy but if you wipe off the excess product off the wand before applying….oooh it’s wonderful. I have pretty long lashes to begin with, but this mascara makes them thick and long and perfect! I never wear any fake lashes because with this mascara you don’t need to!

 

  • Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in shade Lolita

s1552413-main-hero

Best mauve shade for lips. The formula is beautiful! It dries perfectly matte and stays on all day. Compliment worthy! Try it out!

 

 

 

  • Urban Decay Chill Cooling and Hydrating Makeup Setting Spray

s1458199-main-hero
Use this spray after all of your make up is already on! Spray about 4 spritz and let it air dry. Setting spray prevents your make up from sliding around or transferring on to other surfaces. I also have noticed that it makes my make up look more natural!! Who doesn’t love that?? It is quite pricey but it does last a long time. I have been using it for about 3 months (basically on a daily basis) and my bottle is still half full.

 

**As a tip from a person who really loves makeup and the power behind it, I do suggest investing in higher end products. Yes, you could buy from drug stores but the overall quality is lower and the longevity of the products is as well. I started my make up journey with drug store products and at this moment in my life I wish I would have saved that money and spent it on products that may be a tad bit more expensive but better for my skin and just overall better quality.
