The BEST Lip Colours for Spring!

When it comes to seasonal makeup, my two favourites would have to be Spring and Autumn, As much as I love my vampy berry lips when the cooler months roll around, I love all the pretty colours I get to play around with in the spring time.

Here are the lipsticks that are pretty much always in my rotation all Spring long:
From Left to Right:

  • Wet N' Wild Liquid Catsuit Matte Liquid Lipstick in 'Nudist Peach' 
  • Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in 'Baci' 
  • Colourpop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick in 'Instigator' 
  • Essence Lipstick in 'Coral Calling' 
  • Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipstick in 'Vibrant Mandarin' 
  • Nyx Lipstick in 'Vitamin' 
  • Nyx Lipstick in 'Blush' 
Let me know if you'd like lip swatches or entire makeup looks created with any of these! I'm so excited that it's finally spring!

The Lip Pencil by BITE Beauty

Note: I received these items complimentary from Influenster and BITE Beauty for review purposes. As always, all opinions are 100% honest and my own! 

Okay, real talk for a second. Lip pencils have never been my go-to makeup item. I've tried so hard to get into using lip pencils, but I really couldn't. Either they were too stiff and dragged on my lips, or I just found they didn't last and did nothing.

So I was definitely intrigued to try out BITE Beauty's Lip Pencils. Could this be the product I've been looking for? I've heard such amazing things about their Amuse Bouche lipsticks, so I had high hopes that I would find similar quality in these pencils.
From the first initial swatch of these, there's one thing I noticed that I've never experienced with any other lip pencils: these things are damn creamy. They apply so smoothly, it's essentially like they've repackaged a creamy lipstick into a pencil format. This does unfortunately mean that they will snap easily if you apply too much pressure when using them, but if you're gentle, they will give such a nice, smooth line.
I received the shade 044 and 020, with the Amuse Bouche lipsticks in Whiskey and Honeycomb to go with them. I was so instantly drawn to the 044/Whiskey combo because it is just the most pretty vampy lip ever. It's a reddish brown with hints of plum and I just cannot get enough of it.
I was a touch disappointed with 020/Honeycomb though. Formula wise it's fantastic; no issues there. The shade is just a bit too nude for my lips, and I look a little bit washed out (corpse like...). I still wanted to get good use out of this one though, so I applied a gloss on top if it with a pink undertone and it looks stunning.
The Bottom Line: are these worth it? Absolutely. They've made me a believer that lip pencils are actually worth using, and that says a lot. Would I repurchase/purchase more shades? Again, absolutely. I'd love to pick up a nude more flattering to my skin tone. This is definitely a product I could see myself using on a daily basis.

Drugstore Haul!!!


Hey everyone! I did a bit of makeup shopping at the drugstore today and I thought it'd be fun to share my purchases with you all!

Firstly, there some truly amazing sales going on so I definitely encourage you to go check out your nearest drugstores and hopefully find some great deals like I did! Secondly, this may not be the most interesting haul in the world (1. I'm on a budget and 2. I mainly focused on eye and lip products) but I'm so excited with my new purchases!!!

What I got:
-Maybelline Pumped Up! Colossal Mascara
-Maybelline the Falsies Flared Mascara
-Marcelle Kohl Eyeliner in Black
-Annabelle Smudge Liner eyeliner in Wahine Blue
-Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipsick in Sugar Plum
-Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Wine With Everything (Pearl Finish)
-Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Violet Frenzy (Pearl Finish)
-Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Plum Velour (Shine finish)
-Nyx High Voltage Lipstick in Wine & Dine
-Nyx High Voltage Lipstick in Tiara


I'm so excited to give these a try. I purposefully chose a few lipsticks with a pearl finish because I have a feeling those are really going to be big this year. I love the pearl/metallic range Lime Crime has put out this season but I'm not a huge fan of the brand itself so I'm looking for similar products elsewhere! Hopefully these come out nice!

I will try all these out and report back if any of them are great! (or really really bad).
Hoping you're all having a great 2016!
