Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Supercharged Lipstick Set

Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Supercharged Lipstick Set


The Amuse Bouche Supercharged Lipstick Set ($21 currently on sale for $10 at bitebeauty.com) is a new kit from Bite Beauty for the holidays and a perfectly edited shade selection of their Amuse Bouche Supercharged Lipsticks, which I am assuming is a new formula that Bite will release soon. The formula is super creamy, rich, pigmented and glossy. I absolutely love the color selection here - Good Jujube (Pink Nude), Ruby Bon Bon (Rosy Pink), Cocoa Bite (Warm Nude) and Cherry Truffle (Spiced Red). I love how all the shades in here are flattering on me and the formula is very comfortable. There’s a little bit of bleeding with Cherry Truffle that can be fixed by pairing it with a lip liner. This is a value set that is really worth the price and the lipsticks aren’t too small either. Overall, definitely recommended if you love Bite Beauty and their clean formulations.

Laura Mercier Shades Of Glace Holiday Set



The Shades Of Glace Holiday Set ($45; lauramercier.com) is a mini lip gloss kit from Laura Mercier for the holidays. The colors are quite unique and this formula is a non-sticky sheer gloss that is perfect on its own or layered. This set is a good value and the size isn't that tiny either. The colors here are Tulip, Azalea, Rose Gold Accent and Gilded Berry (limited edition). This gloss does have a slightly sweet scent and is non-sticky. Like any other gloss, this one too lasts a good 2-3 hours before it wears off. Gilded Berry and Rose Gold Accent do tend to leave behind a bit of shimmer behind once the colors wears off, but Tulip and Azalea are your typical lip glosses that still feel moisturizing while the color wears off. Overall, a great gift for anyone who loves their makeup and also the individual glosses themselves make for great stocking stuffers.

First Aid Beauty Holiday Value Sets Under $50 | Fablantis And Calling All FAB Skin Heroes Kits


First Aid Beauty Holiday Sets Under $50 | Fablantis And Calling All FAB Skin Heroes Kits



Two great value sets from First Aid Beauty for the holidays - The Calling All FAB Skin Heros and FabLantis kits ($49 each; ulta.com; sephora.com). Most products in both these kits are full sizes and this is really the perfect way to try out the brand if you haven’t before. The Fablantis Kit comes with full and deluxe sizes of the Pure Skin Facial Cleanser, Ultra Repair Serum, Lip Therapy, Ultra Repair Cream and Facial Radiance Pads. The FAB Skin Heros Kit comes with mostly full sizes of the Ultra Repair Facial Moisturizer, Intensive Lip Balm, Hyaluronic Hydrating Primer, Ultra Repair Cream and a deluxe size of the Pure Skin Facial Cleanser. The Pure Skin Facial Cleanser is one of my favorite mild second cleansers that is fragrance-free. It's fantastic for sensitive skin. The Ultra Repair Cream is a staple one that works for body and face - super gentle, quick absorbing and very hydrating. The two lip care products are new to me and I quite like them both, although I prefer the texture of the Ultra Repair Lip Therapy a little more. The Ultra Repair Serum and Facial Moisturizer are both great year round moisturizers that are perfect for combination/sensitive or dry skin. The Hyaluronic Hydrating Primer is quite new to me and a very hydrating base for most foundations and tinted moisturizers and doesn’t feel heavy or greasy. Finally, the Facial Radiance Pads that are among the most gentle exfoliators for the face - I like to use them 2-3 times a week even though they are quite mild. Overall, I’d definitely recommend looking into FAB’s gifts for the holiday season for anyone who loves their skincare. It's also a great value for under $50 considering there’s a lot of full sized products in there.
