    Has anyone tried the new bite beauty lip pencils? I want to try, but I can't find swatches anywhere. I guess I'll have to hope to see them in stores.

    I can get you some swatches Tuesday!
    They are nice, I tried one on the other day and lasted several hours until I ate. Smooth and easy to apply, fully opaque!

    Thanks!

    My local store only had a few out on display on an end-cap along with other lip pencils. None of the colors I wanted to swatch were there.

    They sound super nice.

    I picked up #10 and #20. They're nice but I don't find them to be anything special. They're creamy, easy to apply, and long lasting but so are my Urban Decay and Charlotte Tilbury liners. I'm not sure of the price difference but Bite may be a little less than UD or CT.

    Bite = $18 for 0.05 oz / 1.4g

    UD = $20 for 0.04 oz / 1.2g

    CT = $22 for 0.04 oz / 1.2g

    Not only is Bite less than both UD and CT, Bite gives you a little bit more product for your money. (Not significantly more, obviously, but a little bit more.) On the other hand, UD has a wider colour range than Bite or CT.

    Are you happy not being at Sephora? Fun new career? Dish!

    Thanks for the feedback.

    It's actually bittersweet. I wont miss the retail environment and pay but I already miss my girls and my discount lol. I had a full-time job already so I decided to work less so I can prepare for the CPA exam.

    Very excited! Just ordered the Becca Amythyst HL! I've wanted a lavender one since Jeffree Star announced his, but I had stopped buying from him.

    Hi every one,
    I have a dilemma (a nice one! ) My husband finally understood what I really want as a gift and gave me a sephora gift card for St-valentin day!!!
    I debating between the Viseart eyeshadow palette in option a) Dark Matte, option B) Warm Neutral Matte (but still out of stock) or option C Neutral Matt , or a small quint eyeshadow of Natasha Denona.
    Let me know what would you chose.
    Thanks
    FRESH YEAR!

    Awwww! What a great hubby!!!

    Your dilemma is a good one to have...but I confess I would wait until the spring sale when you can get an additional discount. The Viseart Warm Neutral Matte may be back in stock by then.

    I still have not given in on ND, but most everyone raves about those eye shadows. While I will not spend the money on the large palettes, the quints are a bit more palatable...for the price...
    Hahahaha see what I did there.

    I really like #2, #4 and #10 is also very pretty...sigh...

    Oh I didn't know I could use my gift card with the sale .... now can I wait till then is the question!!! As for Natasha Denona palette I need to try them before taking the plunge and buy the huge 28 eyeshadow palette, because I do feel this pallette is too hype up and those who actually paid for that palette are not that into it and really the glitter/shimmer shade are a bit too much for my personal taste and I need an eyeshadow to stay on my eyes without a glue, fix + and all. I believe in a Primer, I use UD potion primer but I have no time to use other product to make my eyeshadow stick to my lid.

    Viseart's Matte shadows are really, really good. I'd say if you're wanting some nice all around mattes to fit a gap in your eyeshadow stash, go for either of the Viseart palettes. I have and love the dark mattes. I choose that one over the warm mattes since I feel like the colours in the dark mattes palette are hardly ever included in other palettes.

    Do you have both? if yes which one do you prefer??? the Neutral Matt it has a grey and black that I wont use, as for the Warm neutral Matt there is a lot of browns, that look so similar ... but then again I can/will use all the browns (and the RED/ orange that just call my name) in that pallet versus the Neutral Matt where I KNOW i wont (or barely) use two shades.

    I have both. They are both really, really nice but I think the neutral matte is more versatile. If you think you'll use more shades in the warm matte, you should get that one. You can't go wrong with either.

    I have both, but I use the neutral matt palette a lot more.

    My Hoola, which is quite a few years old now, is 8 grams / 0.28 oz. I bought it after the first downsize, whenever that was. But I do remember the box powders were bigger than that, once upon a time.

    Val it sounds like you should go with warm neutral based on what you said you'd use. YOU Honestly Can't Go Wrong With Either choice. Sorry for the caps, I don't know why my phone does that.
    Starting to hunt for Blazing Haute. This will be the first blush I've ever hit pan on.

    Has anyone ever had an allergic reaction to a lipstick? I recently purchased a new Dolce & Gabbana lipstick and then my lips went really sore and now I have two little blisters! This has never happened to me before, so I'm assuming it was the lipstick as I haven't changed anything with my makeup and skincare routine etc

    Happens to me randomly sometimes. I get little fine bumps that stay for a couple days. I watched a video on YT from an old specktrette who said she had the same issue and always has to sanitise with alcohol before using her lip products. Maybe there's too much fragrance in the lipstick. I haven't had any reactions (as yet) to the D&G lippies I own but I know the fragrance is quite strong.

    It's the first D&G lipstick I've bought and I've never had an issue with my Chanel's or Dior's etc.. I did think when I was applying it that it was very strongly fragranced and then about 15 minutes later my lips became really sore... Does your inner part of your lip (that you can't see with your mouth shut) because very red?

    I had a similar reaction, but with NARS lip gloss. My lips got horribly sore and painful and then blistered. It was terrible. It was only their Larger than Life lip gloss, not the regular ones.
