The New Kids on the Block

Wednesday, August 2, 2017

If you're like me, nothing excites you more then new makeup. There seems to be always something new in the beauty world launching money straight out of my bank account and landing shinny new products on my vanity. The three newest things in my makeup collection are two new lip products (I have a problem) and a new limited edition trendy highlighter.


Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Liquified Lipstick in Chutney
Bite Beauty just came out with a very exciting new liquid lipstick. If you're like me, you're kind of over the whole liquid lipstick thing, but this is not a liquid lipstick, this is a liquified lipstick. Yes it's lipstick that is liquified. I know the term liquid lipstick implies a lipstick that is liquid, but liquid lipstick is basically a highly pigmented liquid lip paint that dries matte or has a satin finish. This liquified lipstick formula is just like if you were to melt down a lipstick and then brush it on your lips. It has the same pigmentation and finish as a lipstick, but it goes on in a thicker liquid form. I'm not gonna lie, I was kind of hesitant at first, but this product is genius! This is the perfect liquid lipstick for the liquid lipstick haters. The first time I wore this lipstick I wore it to dinner and when I came home it still looked pretty good. It just had the normal fade from eating and drinking, but the color was still noticeably on my lips. I also wore it all day at work the next day and I only reapplied a little in the center of my lips after lunch. The lasting power of this lipstick is far superior then any other liquid lipstick I have ever tried. You don't get that weird liquid lipstick fade and it doesn't crumble or look too thick on your lips if you have to reapply. I love this formula so much I just can't wait to try more shades and I really hope Bite Beauty comes out with more colors too.

Becca Light Chaser Highlighter in Champagne Dream Flashes Bellini
Beauty trends are constantly evolving and Becca took the holographic rainbow highlighter trend to a whole new level with a range of kaleidoscope highlighters that have color shifts. I chose to try the Champagne Dream Flashes Bellini shade and as you may or may not know, Becca Champagne Pop is my all time favorite highlighter, so of course I chose the champagne shade. This shade was probably the safest shade to try, but it still has a really cool color affect. This shade is a soft peach with a rose gold shift, so as the light catches the highlighter on your skin the color changes. This highlighter is such a fun easy way to add something a bit different to your makeup. I really want to try the Opal Flashes Jade shade, I just don't know if I'm brave enough.

NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment in London Calling
I know I just said "I'm kind of over the whole liquid lipstick thing," but this is different... NARS once again has proven the saying good things come to those who wait, and NARS waited a long time to come out with their version of a liquid lipstick with their new Powermatte Lip Pigment line. The formula of this lip pigment is very thin and runny but still pigmented. It also dries down to a comfortable almost matte finish, and I'm referring it to an "almost matte" because it isn't fully transfer proof but it's still matte. I've only worn this lip pigment once and it was just at my house, but I'm excited to fully test this out because there are some colors in the line that I have my eye on.
