Bite Beauty Lip Pencil Influenster Unboxing

The best things in life are free, even better is free make-up! I recently was chosen for the Bite Beauty lip pencil voxbox from influenster. I was super excited for this box because I have always wanted to try Bite Beauty lipsticks. I've only tried a  deluxe sample of  the Bite Beauty lipgloss, and I loved it. A major plus is the brand is Canadian and their products are handmade with natural ingredients. That gives them major brownie make-up points.

To find out what I received in this voxbox and some tips on how to be successful with Influenster check out my youtube video:

Colourpop Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick in Femme

I love me a good purple lipsticks and I love me a cheap lipstick as well.  A few months ago I hit the jackpot! Colourpop came out with their Ultra Satin lipstick in the color Femme.

This formula is awesome. The Ultra Satins are a huge improvement over the Colourpop ultra matte liquid lips. It is not drying and it is long lasting. I can drink a coffee and barely any of it will transfer.  I applied this withouta liner and it did not bleed, which can sometimes happen with colourpop products. I have to admit, I thought this color was more a dusty rose colour when I first saw it and I was surprised how purpley it was.

Foundation: Hard Candy Glamoflauge
Contour: Wet n Wild Contour Palette in Dulce De Leche
Blush: Elf Blush Palette
Lips: Colourpop Femme 
Brows: Model Co Brow 
Mascara: Maybelline Colossal Big Shot

I did do an unboxing video when I Femme. Check the video here.

Huda Beauty Lip Contour Set

Hey Lovelies,

Today I want to share with you a possible christmas gift for the lip lover in your life.  I recently got the Huda Beauty Lip Contour Set in Trophy Wife during the Sephora VIB Sale. I have wanted to try the Huda Beauty Liquid Lipsticks for awhile so I thought here was my chance. This is a Sephora exclusive set.

In this video I shared my thoughts and there's a demo as well!

I was a bit disappointed in the longevity of this lipstick. It is not long lasting at all, which is really disappointing. If I had a drink of water it would be gone.  I do not like touching up my lipstick all day. It's super annoying.  I would not repurchase the full sizes of these products. Once they're gone they are gone. It's not my favourite liquid lipstick brand.

You can see in this photo how it is already starting to fade in the centre of my lips.  Below is a photo of the Kat Von D Contour Set which is much more pigmented.
