    French Kiss My @GlitzyLips

    Eye-popping lip foil designs won’t fade, flake or foul for 8 Hours!. Flirt, kiss, sip, dance and dip. ~Lips That POP Make the Party ROCK!™

    I am super into these!  I first saw these at the Makeup Show in NYC and was blown away! A better version of Violent Lips in my opinion but the same concept.  Just as traditional nail polish is to the new strips and decals – so is Lipstick and lip gloss to these kinds of ‘lip tattoos’.

    I love them! At $29.99 each make sure it’s a special occasion when you wear them.

    HOW TO APPLY GlitzyLips™
    Start with clean dry lips free of lip stick or gloss.
    Measure LipFoil so that you have enough to create the perfect pout.(top/bottom)

    Shake GlitzyLips™ Adhesive . Start with lips in the AHHH position and slightly stretched into a smile .
    Apply liberally to the lips leaving a blueish/white appearance.

    When GlitzyLips™ Adhesive has dried to a clear state, apply LipFoil to slightly parted lips, smoothing over foil to ensure good
    surface contact. Be sure to apply LipFoil to the lip you applied adhesive to first.

    Quickly remove LipFoil from one side to the other. Repeat to complete your perfect pout.

    @bitebeauty ME

    Being a frequent shopper at Sephora, I couldn’t help but notice their newest addition to the shelves – BITE Beauty.

    BITE Beauty is an alluring collection of lip products featuring the super antioxidant “Resveratrol” and superior color. Ranging from nude to plum, their highly pigmented, long-lasting shades were designed by industry-leading makeup artists for today’s modern woman. In addition to featuring beauty’s most sought-after antioxidant, the pro-performance formulas’ all-natural ingredient list includes organic shea butter, superfoods, and food-grade colors, making them truly good enough to eat. It’s beauty that’s better for you.

    I bought a Limited Edition set of mini BITE lipstick colors at Sephora Online for just 25$ (gotta love the holidays)! The set came with FIVE shades in Shiraz (soft plum), Fig (nude rose), Pepper (dusty rose), Bouquet (soft pink), and Champagne (pearly nude). They’re the pre-packaged colors for everyday, but the whole BITE collection comes with an array of shades from nudes to brights that the set doesn’t include. I think their great and they feel great on.

    The perfect lip color is hard to find, but Bite Beauty’s long wear and smooth finish makes every pick a no-brainer.

    All Natural, Age-defying, and Good enough to eat, Bite Beauty products include:

    Luminous Crème Lipstick ($24 USD I $28 CAD) — The exceptionally smooth lipstick in a pallette of 21 alluring shades made from creamy organic fruit butters and antioxidant-rich Resveratrol to fight free radicals and help reduce the appearance of fine lines.

    High Pigment Pencil ($24 USD I $28 CAD) — Micronized pigments provide ultra-concentrated colour with the added benefit of antioxidant-rich Resveratrol to help reduce wrinkles around lips and fight free radicals.

    Lip Rouge ($22 USD I $25 CAD) — Buildable layers of colour in 6 shades with a rich, satin texture infused with jojoba and Liposome Complex to plump and condition lips.

    Lip Shine ($20 USD I $23 CAD) — Multi-use butter for lips, cuticles – anywhere skin could benefit from a super boost of antioxidants derived from superfruits such as acai, bluberry, cranberry and pomegranate for intense conditioning.

    SPF 15 Sheer Balm ($19 USD I $22 CAD) — An extremely wearable, semi-sheer lip color with buildable coverage – can be used as a base or simply on its own. Add luster and volume while protecting your pout with SPF 15. A soothing formula of delicious organic mint and blood orange essential oils refresh and cool skin delivering an intense moisture and high dose of Resveratrol to tone and replenish around the lip area.

    Vitamin Gel ($18 USD I $21 CAD) — Lick-worthy lip gel that combines the benefits of micronized multivitamins with healthy organic fruit juices to give a sheer and gentle shine to lips. Mood-enhancing essential oils and a high dose of Vitamin C provide a natural pick-me-up to this delicious treatment.

    Superfruit Butter ($18 USD I $21 CAD)

    Lipstick Trio ($24 USD I $41 CAD)

    Vitamin Gel Trio ($28 USD I $32 CAD)

    Line & Define Trio ($36 USD I $41 CAD)
