Beauty Product Reviews

I own 4 of these lip colors (swatches shown). From left to right we have Amaretto, Tatin, Sucre and Aubergine. Amaretto is described on Sephora's website as a peachy nude. I agree with this but I feel that is a bit of a brown nude if applied heavily. Tatin is a rose pink which is accurate. Sucre is described as a warm pink, but I believe it is slightly orange and could be considered a coral pink. Finally, Aubergine is a eggplant color. I believe Aubergine is more of a warm, red purple though than a cool purple. Overall these matte lipsticks are the least dry and most pigmented matte lipsticks I have ever used. I normally am not a fan of matte lipsticks for this very reason but in my experience the dryness that I have had was very limited and nothing a bit of lip balm couldn't remedy. The colors are gorgeous, and go on incredibly smooth. They are not dry and all like a traditional matte and glide on easily. It's also worth noting that these products are almost completely natural. I believe all of my lip crayons are between 95-99% natural. These lipsticks are formulated without parabens, sulfates and phthalates. "BITE products are free of polybutenes, sulfates, and petroleum byproducts. The lips-only collection is certified gluten-free and made with food-grade ingredients, without sacrificing pigmentation or performance."(http://www.sephora.com/matte-creme-...)

I have been using this concealer for about 7 months now. I use it to brighten/highlight as well as conceal the redness in my face. I apply this under my eyes, around my nose and the highlight areas of my nose, chin and forehead. The concealer is extremely lightweight and blends seamlessly with minimal effort. I am a strawberry blonde with many freckles and this product is so opaque and pigmented that they nearly disappear. Sometimes when going out for special occasions I will use this as a foundation to achieve a completely flawless face; and because of its pigmentation a minimal amount is needed. It is necessary to set with powder, especially if you are an oily skin type or are prone to creasing under the eye. I always set my foundation and concealer with powder so this is no problem for me, but if you normal or dry skin and do not usually set your makeup it maybe a slight inconvenience but the product is definitely worth the one extra step.
