Hi friends! Look who’s finally written their 2015 best of beauty post! It only took a bajillion years…
Asking me to pick my favorite makeup products is like asking me to pick a favorite child—it just can’t be done. I love all of them for different reasons. (Er…most of them, anyway.) That’s why, initially, I wasn’t going to write a 2015 favorites post. January is almost over, everyone else has done it, and I worried no one would want to read it. But then, one of my friends asked me to write it, and here I am. I’ve caved. Not all of these were 2015 discoveries, but I definitely used the heck out of all of them last year! I decided to save my skincare favorites for a future post—I’m long overdo for an updated skincare routine anyhow!
Without further ado, here’s my 2015 All Star Lineup!
Every once in a while, there’s a brand that just gets everything right. Even if their product range isn’t expansive, it’s exceptional—a quality over quantity philosophy, if you will. That’s how I feel about the Bite Beauty brand.
Their collection isn’t large, in fact, they only make lip products. But they’re SO. GOOD. Every single one of them. Handmade, with simple ingredients, and stunning, saturated color, their products are well-worth their price tag. Their whole philosophy is that the ingredients used in a lipstick should be “good enough to eat,” and so they formulate all their products with food-grade, quality ingredients. (Not that I recommend eating your lipstick…) I’ve tried a handful of items from Bite, but I wanted to share two of my favorite products with you: their Luminous Crème Lipsticks and their Matte Crème Lip Crayons.
This is a tale about what happens when you lack self control… I’ve been trying really hard not to splurge on makeup the last few months. I have so many products that I really don’t need any new ones. But what fun is that? Any progress I’d made in sticking to a budget went completely down the drain during Sephora’s VIB Rouge Sale last week.
I went to Sephora not once, but twice during the sale. (Whoops!) I thought I’d sit down and take the chance to share my purchases with you. In an effort to keep this short, I’ll keep the product descriptions brief, but please feel free to let me know if you’d like me to do a review of any of these items in the comments below!
