I was so excited to receive this VoxBox from Influenster. I love lip liners just as much as I love lipsticks. These are available to purchase at Sephora for $18. They have 22 shades available. I received 020 Beige Nude and 044 Rich Mahogany. I have also been wanting to try the Amuse Bouche lipsticks. The lipsticks I received are Whiskey and Honeycomb.

I love Bite Beauty and what they stand for. I knew these products weren’t going to disappoint. My favorite items from the brand so far are the Agave Lip Mask (I have original and champagne) and the Matte Creme Lip Crayons.
The packaging is super basic. Requires a sharpener. No biggie.
Some of my favorite lip pencils are MAC Cosmetics and the NARS Velvet Lip Liners. Both of these brands are matte, so they have a thicker formula, and they’re a little tougher to apply. These from Bite Beauty are different. I gotta admit I am super impressed with these. They are super soft and creamy. However, because of the creamy formula, it causes them not to last as long as the ones I mentioned. You’ll get a full 4 hours of wear using it alone without eating or drinking much. You will definitely have to reapply after a full meal. The best thing about these is that they are easy to apply and they are great to wear alone. They apply very evenly. In the picture below, I am only wearing Rich Mahogany. As you can see the color is very opaque. I’d say the finish is a semi matte. It feels very comfortable on the lips.
In the following picture I am wearing both the lip pencil in Beige Nude and Honeycomb lipstick. The lipsticks are just as impressive. Very opaque and creamy. I have been on a nude lipstick kick lately- this combo is being added to the favorites. I also like to wear the Beige Nude liner with a simple gloss on top.
Thanks to Influenster for sending me this box try! I definitely want to purchase some. I have my eyes on Mauve Brown.
Today’s shade of the day features MAC Cosmetics Lip Pencil in Nightingale. I mentioned this guy in my MAC Haul post. I figured it would be a good idea to give you a lip swatch. I love wearing MAC Lip Pencils as lipsticks. They are super matte and last all day. They are kind of dry so if you don’t like really dry matte lipsticks, you could always apply a lip balm over it. They can be a little tough to apply but I don’t mind it.

This color is a beautiful berry color. I’m pretty sure it’s similar to Rebel, which is one of MAC’s most popular shades. I’d definitely recommend this shade for the fall!
I did my eye makeup a little different and I love it. Instead of using my typical liquid liner, I decided to use eyeshadow. I wish I would have used a different bronzer… I guess it’s time to put away my shimmery bronzers and bring out my matte ones.

This post is wayyyy overdue. Several months ago I received a gift card to Nordstrom. I somehow used it all on MAC products. I’m not sure what came over me because I normally don’t buy MAC. I do love their lip pencils and matte lipsticks.
Strobe Cream– I used to hear really good things about this product so I’m excited to try it. I love me some dewy skin! I purchased the travel size.
Fix + I have never tried this product. I couldn’t help myself because the travel size is so cute. I figured I could use this to spray on my brushes.
Lip Pencil in Dervish– The only nude pencil from MAC I have is Whirl. I wanted something less mauve and more pinky nude. I think this was a good pick!
Lip Pencil in Nightingale– This is such a beautiful plum color. I am so excited to wear this on its own.
Lip Pencil in Burgundy– I had such a hard time deciding between this or Vino. Burgundy has more of a red/brown undertone and that’s what I was looking for.
Viva Glam Miley Cyrus Lipstick– I’ve purchased the Viva Glam lipsticks for a while now. I’ve been meaning to pick this one up but I just hadn’t gotten around to it. It’s a pretty pink color with an amplified finish.

One day I was snooping around on social media, I saw that a few limited edition items were in stock, so of course I made a purchase.
Fix + Lavender– Everyone and their momma were going crazy over these. Of course I felt the need to want it as well. I have used this a few times and it feels amazing. I love the lavender scent.
Giambattista Valli Lipsticks in EugenieandCharlotte–This is another collection everyone went nuts for. I can’t lie… The packaging is beautiful. I wasn’t very interested in this collection, but after seeing it in person I fell in love.
