Money Can Buy Lipstick

Bite Beauty | Best Bite Remix Set

Tuesday, November 25, 2014 / , ,

I first heard about the brand Bite Beauty on Youtube, and I never imagined they would become my favorite lip product brand so quickly. Their lip pencils are so luxurious, and apply smoother than any other lip pencil I have ever tried. What I love most about their lip pencils is how they double as both a lip color and liner. I'll have to admit, I'm extremely lazy when it comes to applying lip liner, but I've learned what a significant difference it makes when you use a liner. Liners help define your lips, and aid in making sure you apply your lip color flawlessly.

The Best Bite Remix Set {which I believe is currently sold out online at Sephora} includes four mini-sized High Pigment Lip Pencils encased in a red metal tin. The mini-sized pencils are 0.05oz, making them about half the size of Bite Beauty's full-sized pencils (0.09oz). The set includes two permanent shades, Rhubarb and Pomegranate, and two shades exclusive to the set, Sable and Winterberry.

How I Stay #ForeverYoung

I may only be in my 20s, but preserving my youthful skin is so important in my daily routine. Having fresh, youthful skin is not only beautiful, but it keeps me confident! Using fantastic products in your skincare routine is definitely important, but there are also everyday activities you can do to stay #ForeverYoung.

Before anything else in my routine, I always reach for the Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream. My skin can look a bit dry and tired in the morning, but the Micro-Sculpting Cream always wakes me up and keeps my skin hydrated. Within a week of using the cream, I noticed firmer, brighter skin. My skin looks glowing without wearing any make-up, and I think that’s something most women would love to achieve! 

Perrier Street Art

Growing up in New York City, I have constantly been immersed in art in all its forms: murals, fashion, sculptures, theater, and dance, to name a few. But the one type of art that has always stood out the most living in an urban city, is street art. If you were to spend just an hour in one of the boroughs of New York City, you would be amazed by how many different pieces of street art you would stumble upon.

From a young age, I have always seen the beauty of street art. Every mural, painting, or piece of graffiti told a story, and everyone who passed by seemed to have their own interpretation. My favorite part of street art, is its ability to brighten and change the aesthetic of a neighborhood. With the help of paintings on store gates and on the sides of buildings, I have watched neighborhoods go from dreary and boring to full of life and culture.
