Bite Beauty Kir Royale Lipstick & Lipgloss


This is the third Bite Beauty Lip Lab Trio. I placed an order as soon as it was available online just to redeem my points for this set. Kir Royale lipstick is berry shade with a sheen finish it's very pigmented, creamy, long lasting and very moisturizing. The matching lip gloss is quite pigmented as well and if you're looking for a high shine gloss look no further grab a Bite Beauty Lush Fruit Gloss. I did skip Mimosa trio but Bellini & Kir Royale was definitely worth redeeming my points. I heard this is the last set but don't quote me on that I do hope they come up with a nude Lip Lab Trio if they continue doing the sets. If you have some points saved up get this set before its gone.

Glossybox October

image
GlossyBox is a monthly subscription box, for $21.00 per month you receive 4-5 full or deluxe size products. I bought few boxes in the past but this box is by far the prettiest of them all.

GlossyBox Description
According to COCO CHANEL, a girl should be two things: classy and fabulous. Designed by the renowned illustrator, Jamie Lee Reardin, The October Vive La France GlossyBox captures both of these attributes.

This is the back of the box its totally frame worthy!

These are the 5 items I received, so far I've used 4 products out of the 5 and my most favorite is the nailpolish and the exfoliating gel.

Fullsize Value $24.00 for 2.6 oz

image
Sabe Masson Solid Fragrance in Rock
Fullsize Value $25.00 for .17 oz

Overall
I used the Nuxe Exfoliating Gel it was very gentle it leaves the skin very soft and smooth. I haven't used the La Roche Posay product yet I'm kind of afraid cause it does contain retinol. I do plan on using it soon though cause I've been wondering about retinol products. The solid perfume is a no for me its a bit strong for my liking. I love Glossybox but the only reason I unsubscribed in the past cause the box doesn't fit inside my mailbox which meant a visit to the USPS every month. I liked this box its definitely worth $21 and the box is self is a piece of art.

This summer YSL launched this stunning Kiss & Love Lipstick collection, there are total of 4 lipsticks and 1 Sephora VIB Rouge exclusive shade which is only available on the Sephora website. The packaging is gorgeous! The lipsticks are cased in the traditional Rouge Pur Couture gold and black lipstick packaging with a twist which is a cute little red kissing mark on the cap. The boxes are filled with the same red kissing marks. The lipstick bullets also have the same little kissing marks embossed all over them.

70 Le Nude- Its a beige nude shade with a satin finish. 

19 Le Fuchsia- Its a bright magenta with a purple undertone and its a satin finish, 

71 Black Red- Its a brick red shade with a satin finish.

All three lipsticks are highly pigmented. very light weight, and creamy they just glides on so easily. I love the way these lipsticks feels on my lips its very hydrating. The only con is they are not long lasting all three lipsticks lasted about 4 hours but  #19 & #71 did leave a stain behind.


Overall
I love the packaging which led me to buy two more of these lipsticks after I purchased 70 Nude but this is not something that screams "must have" in my opinion. Out of the three lipsticks I reach out for the Nude one the most so I'm going to put the other two lipsticks back in the box and place them next to my "LE Special Packaging DO NOT USE" makeup items ( yes I hoard them ). My fellow makeup collectors if you're still looking for these lipsticks they are still available on the Sephora website.

Chanel 280 Golden Sun Joues Contraste Powder Blush Review

Chanel 280 Golden Sun Joues Contraste Powder Blush
Price $45.00 for 0.21 oz

Chanel 280 Golden Sun Joues Contraste Powder Blush

Chanel recently launched two new Joues Contraste Powder Blush Golden Sun and Vibration along with a highlighting powder. I picked up #280 Golden Sun obviously! Golden Sun is a beautiful shimmery neutral beige with a hint of rose. I love the texture its finely milled, light weight, silky smooth and it's very easy to blend. The micro shimmer doesn't transfer to the skin it just gives you a stunning rosy glow. There is a strong fragrance which is the only thing I don't like about the Chanel blushes. I got a good 7 hours of wear.

Overall
I can tell this blush will easily become one of my favorite blush, cause this shade is right up my alley and it's the perfect blush to incorporate in your everyday look. Golden Sun will show up different depending on your skin tone on my NC40 skin tone ( mac foundation reference ) it shows up like a light nude rosy shade. I heard from a IG friend this is an exact dupe for Accent blush which I don't own so I can't compare. My Chanel blush collection is quite small so I'm very excited to add this gorgeous nude blush to my collection. I'm not sure if Golden Sun is LE but I did hear its a repromote. Its now available in all Chanel counters and the Chanel website.

Fall Lipstick Series: Vol 2

Its time to rotate the lipsticks and this time I picked Tom Ford Negligee, Julian, and Collin. Negligee ( review here ) and Collin is quit similar but its not an exact dupe, I believe Collin is the same as Indian Rose. I finally started using the TF Lips & Boys lipsticks I love the size of these lipsticks you can just throw them in your makeup bag or clutch and you don't have to worry about them taking up too much space.

Collin- Its a beautiful rosy pink shade with a cream finish.

Mac Nightmoth Lipliner & Maybelline Merlot

This time I'm also including two lipliners that I've been using and loving lately. Unfortunately I can't find Maybelline Merlot anywhere I purchased it last year from a drugstore. I hope they didn't discontinue Merlot its such a lovely deep wine shade perfect for fall. I love Mac Cosmetics Nightmoth its a very deep and dark plum shade. Its highly pigmented its not an everyday color for me but for fall its the perfect vampy shade.
