First Impression: Bite Beauty Multistick in Biscotti

I love Bite Beauty lipsticks. The handmade, Canadian lip products are a great luxury item, in my opinion. They smell amazing, they slide on easily with full-coverage and are made of food and food-grade products. What’s not to love?

But I have to admit that I was skeptical of the Multistick they released in the fall. One product that works equally well on lips, cheeks and eyelids? Seems too good to be true. Here is my first impression of the multistick, which I picked up in Biscotti.

Julep It’s Balm First Impression

Yes, another video. I am so excited to share this one with you, it’s my best video yet!

Today I am talking about the new It’s Balm Lip Crayon colours from Julep (and yes, I do have a small rant about the product’s name change).

The lip crayons reminded me a lot of other lip balms. You had to do a few swipes to get some decent colour payoff and needed to be reapplied in an hour or two. On the flip side, I felt comfortable applying without a mirror since I wasn’t concerned with getting it all over my face like I am with some lipsticks. The smell is pleasant, kind of a sweet, vanilla-cake smell but can get a little cloying after awhile.

From top to bottom, left to right: Apricot Nude, Dusty Orchid, Nectar Pink and Ripe Raspberry.

Overall, I like this product. Now that I’ve tried a few more colours, I would probably be willing to try more. I mention in the video how much I hate Aurora Pink creme and that has deterred me from trying more, which really isn’t fair since the colour just simply doesn’t go with my skin tone, no other reason.

First Impression Julep Eyeshadow 101

Hey folks, did everyone have a nice Thanksgiving? Mine was great. I’m one of the few people I know who actually looks forward to turkey and then all the turkey leftovers. Daughter Dearest also had a great time playing with Cousins although listening to four girls under 10 laugh and bicker and fight drives Grandma Dee and I a little crazy.

Today I’m going to bring you a video giving you my first impression of the new eyeshadow sticks by Julep called Eyeshadow 101. While this isn’t the first video I’ve done, this is the first one I’ve featured on my blog for reasons that will become clear in the coming weeks.

So, here’s the Julep blog post picture I reference in the video that shows the colours from lightest to darkest.
