Amuse Bouche by Bite Beauty

I recently received a trio of Amuse Bouche lipsticks from Bite Beauty courtesy of Influenster. I have gotten a lot of vox boxes since I started my firstΒ blog about four years ago, and besides the Victorias Secret Sport box, I think this was one of my favorites.

For starters, these colors are SPECTACULAR.

Just. Look. At. Them. From left to right they are Beetroot, Pepper, and Gazpacho.

The lipsticks themselves smell very citrusy, have a great texture, and are made with food grade ingredients. They are even gluten-free!

Even though it took a little practice to get such a rich color on my pale, pale skin, Beetroot is definitely my favorite (see above). I paired it with some high waisted black jeans from Garage and this sparkly J Crew tee for a tapas date night. This little black bag was a darling addition (even though my phone doesn’t fit in it!).

I love Pepper (above) as well because it is perfect for a casual day of shopping and is also totally office appropriate!

Definitely a 5 out of 5 on this one. Way to go Bite Beauty!

 

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

Influenster Airbrush Perfect Legs

I recently received the Airbrush Perfect Legs VoxBox from Influenster with a sunless tanner-like product from Sally Hansen.

To be honest, this was the first Vox Box I received since becoming a part of Influenster about three years ago that I did not like.

Although the product was definitely too dark for my skin tone (since I received the medium) it was still just a strange product. It works like makeup for your legs, but it came off a bit too easily for my liking, and was pretty orange. It also does not gradually tan your legs like other similar products, but just wipes clean. So you go from being, in my case at least, pale to orange to pale again in one go.

This product was really just not for me, and I received similar feedback from other bloggers I talked to who also received this box.

Oh well, hopefully the next one will be better, andI honestly can’t complain after receiving probably a dozen or so great boxes from Influenster.

My Summer Scent

Perfume is something that always makes me feel a little more put together. Whether I’m going to a nice dinner with my boyfriend, or just to the store, it fills my surroundings with vibrancy. That’s probably what makes it so darn expensive.

I tend to lean away from heavy floral scents (possibly something to do with my horrid allergies) and gravitate towards anything sweet or fruity.

One of my all time favorite scents, and my typical go to, is Ralph Lauren Big Pony #2. Not only is it sweet with notes of Cranberry and Tonka Mousse, but it also happens to come in a pink bottle with a green pony (my favorites)!

Recently, I decided to spend some of my Sephora VIB points and get the 100 point gift: the Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black rollerball.

This is the beginning of a new brand by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, named after their other siblings and uses the idea of two contradictory personalities. Nirvana Black’s counterpart is Nirvana White (which hopefully I will get to try!).

You can definitely smell the notes of violet, sandalwood, and vanilla, but I disagree with Sephora calling it mysterious. To me, there is something familiar about it. Maybe that’s because my little sister always loved vanilla scented beauty products when we were young.

I put this on before going to the store the other day and I felt as if it was whirling around me. But in a good, not overpowering way.

The 100 point gift is little, but it is perfect to tuck in a purse. Plus, with perfume, a little goes a long way.
