Review & Swatches: Bite Beauty The Lip Pencil in 020 and 044


Bite Beauty x Influenster very kindly sent me for free some products to try and test out! I'm going to be focusing on Bite Beauty's newest launch - The Lip Pencil in 020 and 044*! They also sent me two minis from their Amuse Bouche Line - Honeycomb and Whiskey - to pair up with The Lip Pencils. I used to think that lip pencils were kind of useless mostly because I didn't have that many problems with feathering or fading. Now that I'm experimenting with darker colors most of the time and apparently always experiencing dry and thus wrinkly uneven lips, I've really started to appreciate a good lip pencil. Each pencil contains 0.05 oz/ 1.4 grams of product and retails for $18.

The Final Touches ft. Puffs of Powder


Considering how I have dry/dehydrated skin, I'm kind of surprised at how many powder products I have. Most of the time, I look for powders to set my under eye area or to add some luminosity to my skin without using highlighter. Lately, I do feel like companies have been putting out powder foundations that work wonderfully on dry skin though and that also prompted me to try out more powders.

Review & Swatches: Tony Moly Inked Cushion Liner in Black and Plum Wine


Got to be honest - 100% bought both of these liners because of the ultra adorable packaging. It's such a nice desk makeup item as well!

The Tony Moly Inked Cushion Liner is a relatively recent release, but there has been many reviews of it already because the packaging kind of sparked everyone to get it as soon as possible. Spoiler - I'm in consensus that these are more gimmicky than anything, but I'm actually surprised at how much I liked one of them! I bought Black and Plum Wine, but it comes in 5 colors total. They retail for around $7-$9 each depending on where you buy them and each pot contains 2 grams of product.

Review & Swatches: Pony Effect Stay Fit Matte Lip Color in Magnificent and On Fleek


The Pony Effect Stay Fit Matte Lip Colors have become one of my favorite liquid lipsticks and I've finally sat down to review the first two shades I purchased. When these initially launched, I purchased a duo that included Magnificent and On Fleek. The swatches on the Memebox website do look different than what I saw in real life and while I was slightly disappointed, I do love these shades and hope this review helps! Pony Effect claim that these liquid lipsticks will give opaque color with minimal smudging and has a nourishing formula. Each tube contains 4.6 grams of product and retails for $18.50.

2016 Favorites: Eyes + Brows


I was pretty boring and possibly unsurprising with my 2016 Eyes + Brows picks, but that's almost to be expected since I loved these items so much that I ended up mentioning them all the time! Instead of bigger eye shadow palettes, I favored singles (powder + creams) and smaller palettes more. I just felt like those were easier to use in the mornings when I didn't want to think too hard.

Review & Swatches: Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow in Kitten Karma and Rose Gold Retro


The Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadows are the answers to my glitter product prayers! An over exaggeration, but I've been wanting to incorporate glitter into my collection and this launch was perfect! I'm a naturally clumsy person, and so loose glitters were never something I really wanted to venture in and so these liquid (but not watery) glitters were something I immediately added into my shopping cart. The two colors I'll be reviewing are Kitten Karma and Rose Gold Retro. Each tube contains 0.15 ounces / 4.5 mL and retails for $24.
