BITE BEAUTY - Best Bite Set

Bite Beauty - Best Bite Set

I found this great little tin of 4 high pigment lip pencils from Bite Beauty.  They are 4 fabulous mini pencils that you can easily carry in your purse.  It's hard to carry several different lip colors along with all of your other make-up so these minis are a great way to be able to carry several different colors to go with your mood or outfit.

This set is actually perfect for the upcoming holidays where you would wear these great, festive colors to parties or gatherings. 

From Sephora's site -
What it is:
A gift-ready collection of mini Bite High Pigment Pencil minis in a purse-sized tin compact. 

What it does:
This set of festive lip colors will have you looking perfect for any holiday occasion. Mini High Pigment Pencils allow you to color and hydrate your lips with ease. A retractable, jumbo pencil tip is ideal for application on the go. 

This set contains:
- 4 x 0.05 oz High Pigment Matte Pencil in Quince, Rhubarb, Cranberry, Madeira 

What else you need to know:
This set features Cranberry, a festive red shade to take you through the holiday season.

Pick one up for yourself, as a gift or both!!

Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer

Instant Age Rewind® Eraser Dark Spot Concealer + Treatment
Maybelline has come out with a new concealer called Instant Age Rewind. It claims to be a concealer and dark spot treatment over time as it contains Vitamin C. It is also supposed to treat acne scars, sunspots and signs of aging.
After using Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer for weeks (it claims to work in 4 weeks), I really haven't noticed a difference with this one sunspot that I have on my cheek. It does not seem lighter at all. So that's somewhat disappointing. I was looking forward to a mutli-tasking product. It does a decent job of concealing the sunspot but it just isn't making it any lighter.
I like the product as a concealer, though. The color matches my skin perfectly and does a good job of concealing my dark circles. The applicator is a little tricky to get started, you have to keep clicking several times before any product starts coming out. Eventually, though, it started working. A little too much product comes out so I dab it on the area and then use my finger to blend it.

Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer is worth buying if you're looking for a good concealer with a somewhat easy to use applicator. You don't have to carry a concealer brush or anything. However, if you're hoping it works on any sunspot discoloration, I don't think you'll be happy with the results. I will keep using it as a concealer.

Too Faced Air Buffed BB Crème Complete Coverage Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Sunscreen

If you are into all of the latest 'BB' products out there, you're going
to love this new compact from Too Faced. It is an amazing five-in-one complete coverage beauty balm that perfects, mattifies, primes, moisturizes and protects with SPF 20. This great new product combines BB cream, concealer, primer, SPF and makeup in one. It is a long lasting cream-to-powder formula that comes in 5 beautiful shades. You get the benefit of a Beauty Balm along with SPF and buildable coverage makeup. You'll get a perfect finish since this makeup compact primes, perfects, moisturizers and protects with SPF 20 in one quick step. It comes with a snap-in-place Air Buff Brush that helps you create buildable coverage or you can just use whatever you prefer to apply it to your face.

I think this is one amazing compact. The texture is spongey and light, It goes on beautifully. The makeup contains Rose Fruit which is supposed to make your pores smaller and I did notice a difference. It also has Star Fruit Leaf to moisturize your skin and Rose Myrtle to repair and prevent UV damage. I love anything that contains SPF so that I don't have to apply that separately, because I will usually skip that extra step when I'm in a hurry.

All in all, great product to try for a beautiful finish or if you're looking for something that is good for your skin and can save you some time getting ready in the morning.
