Bite Beauty Crystal Creme Shimmer Lip Crayon

Hello, lovelies!

I adore Bite Beauty. I recently bought a Crystal  Creme Shimmer Lip Crayon from Sephora and instantly enjoyed the lightweight, creamy formula that differs from the drying matte lipsticks I usually wear. Bite Beauty’s Crystal Creme Shimmer Lip Crayon is the newest addition to the brand’s range of lip crayons. Instead of a matte formula, this crayon features a fun shimmer formula that delivers sheer colour for the spring season!

The Packaging

The lip crayon comes in a sleek, matte black tube with the Bite Beauty logo embossed on it. It is lightweight and portable. The crayon itself has a precision tip for easy application. The crayon twists upward when the bottom of the tube is twisted, but it is not self-sharpening.

The Lip Crayon

I love the creamy texture of the lip crayon! It glides onto the lips and is highly pigmented. The lip crayon feels weightless when applied to the lips, and dries down to a translucent finish. I adore that this product doesn’t fade or feather with extended wear. The product dries down to a soft-focus finish that appears blurred and chic.

The Formula 

The formula is nourishing and soft. The texture feels lightweight and comfortable. As with other Bite Beauty products, this lip crayon is formulated without parabens or sulfates. The lip crayon is water-resistant and feels smooth and hydrating on the lips. Each crayon has a pearly undertone.

The Shades

Bite Beauty’s Crystal Creme Shimmer Lip Crayon is available in a range of 10 shades. Each shade has a shimmer finish. I adore the fun, whimsical names of each of these lip crayons!

  • Rose Glace – Shimmering peachy pink with rose pearl
  • Candied Guava – Shimmering apricot with gold pearl
  • Mauve Marzipan – Shimmering mauve with magenta pearl
  • Fuchsia Frosting – Shimmering hot pink with electric fuchsia pearl
  • Cherry On Top – Shimmering warm red with red pearl
  • Violet Icing – Shimmering lavender with silver and violet pearl
  • Grape Glaze – Shimmering violet with iridescent pearl
  • Cocoa Crush – Shimmering bronze with bronze pearl
  • Molten Chocolate – Shimmering cocoa plum with maroon pearl

Bite Beauty’s Matte Creme Lip Crayon is a great product if you like a creamier lipstick formula. It is lightweight and feels delightful on the lips. Though it is not long-wearing, the formula is one that I favour when I’m looking for a lightweight, creamier product! Bite Beauty’s Matte Creme Lip Crayon retails for $28 at Sephora

Erin Angela’s October 2018 Sephora Haul

Hello, lovelies!

I recently shopped at Sephora after a two-month no-buy period. The purpose of my trip was to replace my holy-grail cleanser but I added a few other surprises to my shopping cart that I’m sharing in today’s blog post!

Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray and Complexion Prep Spray Duo

This duo is part of Urban Decay’s holiday collection and features a travel-sized duo of the brand’s All-Nighter Setting Spray and Complexion Prep Primer Spray. I wanted to try Urban Decay’s iconic setting spray for a while now, and instantly loved it after testing it yesterday! This set is great to travel with.

Smashbox Always Sharp Lip Liner

I’ve always used Bite Beauty lip liners but decided to try one from Smashbox after unsuccessfully finding my favourite shade in store. To my surprise, I love this lip liner! It is creamy and long-wearing. I bought the shade Nude Light, which has a beige-pink undertone. I tested it yesterday and my lipstick did not budge for hours!

Tatcha The Deep Cleanse

I repurchased this cleanser from Tatcha. This has been my main skincare product for a few months, and my skin has become clear and smooth. I adore this cleanser as it does not dry out my skin.

Bite Beauty Agave Treat Trio Mini

This mini Agave lip mask set was an impulse buy. This set comes with three mini tubes of Bite Beauty’s Agave Lip Masks in the shades Natural, Maple and Candy Cane. I apply lip masks and balm regularly throughout the fall and winter months and can’t wait to test these out.

Make Up For Ever Artist Rouge Lipstick Sample

I received a lipstick sample from Make Up For Ever. The shade is a beautiful Rose-tones pink. This lipstick is creamy and pairs well with dark or light eyeshadow.

Clinique Moisture Surge Hydrator Sample

I’ve received many samples of Clinique’s Moisture Surge moisturizer before, and adore the soft, supple hydration that the product gives my skin.

Erin Angela’s Latest Sephora Haul: Summer Edition

Hello, lovelies!

I recently purchased a new foundation from Sephora, and while shopping, added a few new items into my cart. Here’s a peek at the summer edition of my Sephora haul!

Smashbox Studio Skin Hydrating Foundation

I switch foundations each summer and winter. I previously used Clinique Acne Solutions Liquid Makeup, but wanted a new foundation with more coverage. I bought Smashbox Studio Skin Hydrating Foundation after being colour-matched in store, and absolutely love it! The foundation is lightweight, but provides medium-to-full coverage with one swipe. Stay tuned for a full review, but it’s a holy-grail product for me so far!

Sephora’s 2018 Beauty Insider Birthday Gift: Bite Beauty

I redeemed my birthday gift with this trip. This year, I selected the birthday gift set from Bite Beauty. This set contains a sample sized Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Chai, a mini Lip Crayon in Glace, and a sample of the Agave Lip Balm. I’ve worn the lipstick a few times, and it is a beautiful mauve-brown colour.

Tarte Creaseless Under Eye Concealer

I’ve always wanted to try Tarte’s infamous Shape Tape Concealer, however it has never been available in Canadian Sephora stores. When my local Sephora debuted Tarte’s Creaseless Under Eye Concealer, it was a perfect time to try it. This concealer is thick, but provides incredible coverage of dark spots and blemishes. I like that it is creamy without feeling watery or stiff.

REVIEW: Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask

Hello, lovelies!

I wear a lot of lipstick. As a result, my lips consistently feel dry and chapped. I decided to try Bite Beauty’s Agave Lip Mask. I have not tried a lip mask before this one, but this one delivers intensive moisture!

The Packaging

The mask is contained in a triangular, slate-grey tube. It is sleek and sophisticated, bearing the ‘Bite Beauty’ logo on the outside. I like that this packaging is lightweight. The tube has a small nozzle to dispense the mask.

The Mask

The mask itself is dense and thick, with a slightly grainy texture. Because of the thick texture, I find that the mask creates a transparent film on my lips that effectively locks-in moisture. The mask has a pleasant honey scent with hints of vanilla. To my surprise, the mask feels lightweight when applied to my lips.

How to use it

Squeeze a small amount of the mask onto the tip of your finger and apply to the lips.

Bite Beauty’s Agave Lip Mask is available in 5 colours:

  • Lavender – Pale pink
  • Maple – Sheer bronze
  • Champagne – Rose gold pearl
  • Smashed – Sheer candy-apple red
  • Natural – Clear

I own the shade Natural. If you are looking for a hydrating, quick lip mask I’d recommend Bite Beauty’s Agave Lip Mask. It retails for $30 at Sephora.

Sephora VIB Sale Haul: Spring Edition

Hello, lovelies!

Sephora’s spring VIB sale took place from April 20-23 for members. During the sale, VIB members received 15% off all purchases, and this was a perfect opportunity for me to stock up on skincare and makeup I recently ran out of! Here’s what I picked up during the sale:

1) Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Oil – This cleansing oil has become my regular makeup remover. I had a few sample-sized bottles of the oil, but purchased a full-sized bottle after realizing just how often I use it! It is a gentle, effective cleanser to remove my makeup daily and lightly refresh my skin.

2) Too Faced Hangover 3-in-1 Primer/Setting Spray – I put a sample of Too Faced Hangover Primer in my cart after my beloved MAC Fix+ ran out. The first thing I noticed about this primer after trying it last week was the coconut scent. I like that this product acts as a primer or setting spray. I tested it as both my primer and setting spray yesterday, and it refreshed my skin while holding my makeup in place all day!

3) Bite Beauty Lip Pencil – I apply lip pencil every day. I own two shades of the lip pencil from Bite Beauty (020 + 044). The shade 020 is a beige-nude that is an excellent color to apply underneath any lipstick. I repurchased another pencil in that shade to replace the one I used up. (Plus, I love how easy it is to toss these lip pencils into my purse for touch-ups!)

4) Too Faced Melted Matte Liquified Lipstick – Bend and Snap – This Too Faced lipstick purchase was an impulse-buy. I own tubes of this formula in a deep, mahogany red and a subtle lavender. One shade I do not have in my lipstick collection is a bright magenta. The shade ‘Bend and Snap’ is that exact match. The formula is lightweight and non-drying on my lips.

5) Anastasia Beverly Hills Powder Bronzer – Finally, I bought a powder bronzer from Anastasia Beverly Hills. I did not have a bronzer in my collection after misplacing my favorite Too Faced compact. The bronzer from Anastasia Beverly Hills is finely-milled and provides matte coverage. I bought the shade Rich Amber, a gorgeous honey-toned color.

6) Living Proof Restore Conditioner – I received a sample of conditioner from the brand Living Proof. This conditioner renews softness and shine to damaged hair. I’ve tried the conditioner once, and my hair felt softer, bouncier and smooth.

REVIEW: Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Liquified Lipstick


Hello, lovelies!

DISCLAIMER: I received samples of Bite Beauty’s new Liquified Lipstick and the Line and Define Lip Primer compliments of Influenster.

adore lipstick. I own 4 lipsticks from Bite Beauty’s Amuse Bouche line. When Influenster reached out to me to try the company’s new liquid lipstick I happily accepted! This lipstick set contains three liquid lipsticks, along with a lip primer.

The Packaging 

The lipstick tubes are square and designed like lipgloss. The top of the lipstick twists off and contains a doe-foot applicator. I like the sleek design of each lipstick tube – it is slate-grey and contains the Bite logo. Each tube has a clear slot at the bottom displaying the lipstick colour within.

The Formula 

The first thing I must mention about this lipstick is that it is not drying. It is creamy, smooth, and not sticky. The lipstick contains ingredients like coconut oil to moisturize the lips with each wear. It applies like a gloss, and dries down to a semi-matte, glossed finish.

The Colours 

I received three beautiful colours, along with a clear lip liner:

  • Demi-Glace: Chocolate with a hint of mauve
  • Eclair: Rose
  • Flambe: Bright red

The Wear 

I notice this lipstick wears longer if I do not eat or drink in between applications. If you apply it at the beginning of the day without touch-ups, it lasts 4-5 hours on the lips. It does not wear as long as matte liquid lipsticks, but the Line & Define Lip Primer helps increase longevity.

If you’re a lover of all lipstick like I am, I highly recommend adding Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Liquid Lipstick to your collection! Each lipstick retails for $28 at Sephora. The lip primer retails for $25.
