It’s that time of year! At least for me, as my birthday is in a couple of weeks, and that means that I can pick up my Sephora birthday gift. As you may know, Sephora offers a few different birthday gifts of mini products if you’re a Beauty Insider member (it’s free!). The gifts differ from year to year, and since my birthday is in January, I can get my hands on the new gifts right away. Hey, my birthday is always during a snow blizzard, so let me gloat about this for a minute.
I was so excited to hear that a BITE Beauty set was among the gifts and I knew there was no question that I was going to get my hands on one of them. I visited a BITE Beauty Lip Lab last year and discovered their products and how they’re made and even made my very own customized lipstick! All their products are made with good-for-you products, which means that they’re all natural. They even told us that you can take a bite of your lipstick because it’s edible! An even stronger reason why I knew I couldn’t turn down this set was the fact that the colours of the lip products are nude. SOLD!
The first item is the Agave Lip Treatment Sample Duo, which includes an agave sugar lip scrub. This is applied to the lips to prep them prior to applying a lip balm or stick. They provided this at the Lip Lab as well before allowing you to try out your customized shade. This scrub is essentially an exfoliator to cleanse and condition your lips and to remove any dead skin. It’s made with raw brown sugar, pineapple enzymes, and exotic oils, to leave your lips beautifully smooth and soft. Pucker up! After exfoliating, you need to bring moisture back to your lips, and the agave lip balm is made with ingredients that will do just that. Agave and Madagascan vanilla CO2 extract will protect and hydrate your lips all day long. It’s even a great base as a primer for any colour application.
The next item is the Mini Matte Crème Lip Crayon in Glacé, a beautiful nude lip liner that’s super creamy and moisturizing for the lips. It’s water-resistant, long-wearing, and has a matte finish. It’s easily retractable in the tube so there’s no need to carry around a pencil sharpener.
The final item in this set is the Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Chai and I’m absolutely in love with this shade! Highly pigmented and so moisturizing, it’s the perfect lipstick for a day or evening look. It’s so creamy that it applies on so effortlessly. This is an exclusive shade from BITE Beauty, so I’m using it very wisely!
If lip products aren’t your thing, don’t worry, you have other options! Sephora also offers a set of face moisturizers from Glam Glow and a haircare set from Bumble and Bumble (online only). You can redeem your gift in-store or online. Find out more about your options on the Sephora website.
