Bite Beauty Prismatic Lip Glosses

Rose Pearl 0.14 oz/ 4.14 mL and Oyster Pearl 0.14 oz/ 4.14 mL are $22 each. The glosses are creme base, slightly opaque, full on shimmer, and can either be worn on their own or as a topper. The wands are tear drop shaped making it easier to apply and outline.  If the lip colors are in the same shade family as the gloss, the opacity won’t compete with the color. When I wear it as topper, I just put a little in the center of my lips. The glosses are not super long wearing, and once they fade, they do leave behind a little shimmer.

Rose Pearl

 Oyster Pearl

I never thought I would love a shade like Oyster Pearl. Oyster Pearl has such a unique blend of a taupey/brown base with silver/blue shimmer.

 

For myself, Rose and Oyster Pearl are a nice change from wearing nudes and look very different from my other glosses.

Milk Makeup After Party and Gig Eye Pigments

Milk Makeup Eye Pgiments ($24 ec) Gig and After Party 

Brand’s Description

Long-Wearing Crease-free and long-wearing cream shadows stay out as late as you do.
Intense Payoff Each shade is packed with pearlescent pigments for full payoff in a single swipe.
Multi-Use Swipe ‘em all over your lids for a bold shadow look, or use an angled brush to create a long-wear liner.

My Description

They surprisingly live up to their description. Cream products are not for everyone. I hated using creams because of creasing, cracking, and fading. As I was playing with them, they stayed in place for up to 12hrs with very minimal creasing. I love how they can be worn alone or with a complete eye look. Alone, they seriously pop. During application, I had to apply a little at a time to build intensity. I accidently applied too much, and the shadow started bunching up. To avoid buildup, a small amount is needed. Even though it is in a tube, the tube pushes out just enough product without being excessive.

The white tubes are easy to clean off excess makeup.

The tube is designed so well. It pinches out the right amount. For product sanitation, I like that I don’t need to stick my finger in a tube.

I was impressed at the size of the tubes for $24. Pigments are a product I won’t have to worry about getting backups.

 The pigments will work for people who are seeking to start out with cream products and won’t mind the price.

 

Anastasia Beverly Hills Truffle Glitter Single Shadow

Anastasia Beverly Hills Eye Shadow Singles Truffle Glitter 0.059 oz/ 1.7 g $12 is a metallic warm brown and permanent.

Brand’s Description

A finely-milled, full pigment, eyeshadow formula in eight finishes: titanium, duo-chrome, ultra-matte, metallic, satin, shimmer, sparkle, and velvet.

My Description

  • the metallic formula is very easy to blend. I use a brush or my finger.
  • micro silver and gold flecks contributing to the texture.
  • minimal fallout and flaking. I was impressed because most textured shadows will flake off after a few moments, but after two hours of wear, it was still in place. The texture is so easy to work with.
  • can easily be worn dry. I don’t wet textured shadows since I often wear a tacky base or shadow glitter glue. The shade is enough on its own without taking extra steps.

 

 

Anastasia Beverly Hills Sugar Glow Kit

Anastasia Beverly Hills Sugar Glow Kit Marshmallow/ Gumdrop/ Butterscotch/ Starburst retails $40 contains three repromoted shades from previous glow kits. Marshmallow and Butterscotch (Sweets), Starburst (Gleam), and the new shade is Gumdrop.

 

I don’t have technically a favorite shade in the palette just yet, but so far, I love Gumdrop. The glittery shades are Gumdrop and Butterscotch, and the softer shades are Marshmallow (duo chrome white gold) and Starburst.

Additional details

  • they freely pop out if depotting is desired
  • magnetic

I can’t push myself to go out of my way to depot them unless I just wanted one shade to place in an empty palette while on the go.

Almost every high end highlighter I’ve come across are so expensive going up to $38 just for one. I have the Aurora Glow kit. I appreciate how her Glow Kits have different shade ranges and finishes, so no one feels limited in their options.

Bite Beauty Multisticks in Cashew and Gelato

Gelato

Bite Beauty Multistick Gelato 0.17oz / 4.75 g

Cashew

Bite Beauty Multistick Cashew 0.17oz / 4.75 g

The tube is magnetic, so when the cap goes on it snaps shut.

Formula is a multi purpose cream able to be used on eyes, cheeks, and lips.

Eyes– I was able to smoothly use both shades as transition shadow colors without them creasing even after two hours. As shadow, they are ok, and I didn’t care for them. On the lid, individually, they looked more like an eye tint as supposed to an actual shadow. As an individual shadow, I’ll pass.

Cheeks– I love both shades as blush. I use them individually and as blush toppers. Individually, Gelato did not give off a ‘sickly’ look, and Cashew is very flattering. As blush, the sticks did streak, fade, or look patchy, and easy to blend. The easiest motion I liked was applying it directly from the tube with three separated spaces, and then blending them out.

Lips– they make amazing, creamy, full coverage lipsticks. They can also be applied directly from the tube. However, if one wants a more precise line, then maybe use a lip brush. For myself, I don’t like lip brushes and managed to get a precise line.

When I’m in a hurry, the sticks are very helpful when I don’t feel like doing a full on face look. I got a feeling Cashew will be a frequently repurchased.

The Multisticks are $24 each exclusively to Sephora and the Bite Beauty website.

 

Anastasia Beverly Hills Auora Glow Kit

Abh Auora Glow Kit

Is the latest set if six unicornish highlighters. In person, the shades are very glittery and intense. Depending on how you like your highlighters, this kit isn’t for everyone. I personally never wear shades like Orion or Spectrum and go for more golden shades. As I was researching the Glow Kits, many say they can be used as shadows. When I tried them as shadows, they looked a little grainy in texture.

Glow Kit did work for me. If she releases more highlighter Glow Kits in the fall/winter, I can’t wait to see them.
