Who else looks up all the things they can get for free on their birthday? Because same. Every year Sephora gives away a free birthday gift, no purchase necessary, for each Beauty Insider. This year the gifts with deluxe samples of Bite Beauty lipsticks, and a sample of their agave lip balm and lip scrub, as well as GLAMGLOW illuminating moisturizer and SUPERMUD clay mask. Which do you think I chose?
If you answered Bite Beauty you are correct, and I’m hoping everyone did considering the title picture for this post. I ended up going with Bite’s lipsticks because I had always wanted to try their amuse bouche formula, and because GLAMGLOW’s SUPERMUD mask made it feel like my face was falling off when I tried it at a friend’s house. So, I was a little hesitant to try it again, so the pick seemed obvious.
Amuse Bouche Lipsticks ————— $26
As always I need to drool over the packaging. The soft touch, grippy packaging is so chic and minimalist it’s like the apple of the makeup world. The look is always clean and never goes out of style. The formula on this lipstick is like a dream. It feels like you’re rubbing frosting on your lips, and the creamy, sweet smell will make you hungry.
The color reminds me a little of Wet N Wild’s Megalast Liquid Cat Suit in “Give Me Mocha” except creamy. They both give you that grungy vibe and are so beautiful with a soft eye.
Matte Crème Lip Crayon in Glacé ————— $24
Another dreamy formula, very similar to the amuse bouche, but dries a little bit quicker so it may be easier to wear throughout the day. It will still transfer, but I didn’t mind it knowing how hydrating it felt on the lips.
The color on this crayon is so beautiful and could go with so many looks. It’s a darker nude on me that is kind of in between a mauve and a slight terracotta. I think it would look great on anyone and could work with both cool and warm lip liners to change the color a bit.
If you’re looking into either of these lipsticks just know that you’re going to have to reapply because creamy lipsticks just don’t sit when you’re living life. The good thing is these are very pigmented lipsticks, one swipe and you’ve got deep color. These both have a shiny finish, but stay creamy so it’s smooth without being too high shine.
If your birthday is coming up make sure to stop into a Sephora or order online and redeem your gift, it’s always a fun way to find new products. If your birthday already passed just know in the future this is available during your entire birthday month.
