Is it just me or does anyone else find it crazy the Sephora is already putting out there holiday gift sets?! I mean come on here, Christmas isn’t for another two months, this is literally insane. Which brings me to today’s post a holiday gift set review in October. Every year Bite Beauty releases a lip kit. Last year was lip crayons I do believe but this year is a mini lipstick quad. Featuring four of their most popular nudes.
- Fig a true baby doll pink.
- Pepper an everyday wearable mauve.
- Honeycomb your typical tan nude.
- Nori a dark brick/brown red.
Each of the lipsticks in this set can be found in full sizes year around. That’s probably my favorite part of this set. Because all to often we find ourselves sucked into these sets only to find out the colors are limited edition! Thankfully though this is not the case with these beauties. Another quality I love about this set is the creamy, moisturizing quality of the lipsticks themselves. Every single lipstick is packed with high pigmentation that looks amazing on the lips with one swipe. As you can see from the swatches on my hands and lips down below thats just one light application!
*PS If you find yourself a little to afraid of the darkest shade Nori, apply it first with a very light hand and then go over it with Honeycomb. Or do the reverse use Honeycomb on the center of the lip and add Nori to the outside edges to darken things up. Don’t be afraid of mixing up your own color. Designing/ creating new looks with your makeup is half the fun!
For all of you out there who was a fan of the luminous creme line of Bite, this set would be a great way for your to experiment with the Amuse Bouche formulation without the heavy price tag of buying each one of this lipsticks individually.
All in all I would give this holiday quad a thumbs up! Just keep in mind these lipsticks are the MINI versions, which is a big complaint I read online. For me this really isn’t an issue. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve bought a full size lipstick and didn’t finish it. Mini lippies are perfect for your purse!
