Beauty Byte: I'm Glossy

Recently I have been getting a lot of emails inquiring about my various makeup rituals. Just like my fashion, I am a high/low girl with my beauty products. Meaning, if you were to search my makeup bag you would find high end makeup like Armani Cosmetics as well as budget beauty brands like Wet n' Wild. I'm sure you've already guessed from looking at the title, but this post will talk about lip gloss. I am going to break it up in to 3 sections: What I'm Wearing, Tried & Loved and Can't Wait to Get My Hands on it. So, here we go...

What I'm Wearing

If you follow me on Instagram, you may remember me telling you a few weeks ago about a capsule collection of glosses by Bite Beauty called the 15 Shades of Sephora. When I saw this collection I immediately had to have it. Each shade represents an iconic year of color from 1999-2013 in celebration of Sephora's 15th Birthday in the US. I absolutely love these glosses because the variety of colors is amazing. If you've never tried Bite Beauty, it's a great way for you to fall in love with their glosses. The best thing about Bite Beauty glosses is that they have a slightly fruity taste which is good enough to eat. 

Tried & Loved

Last week while I was in Chicago, I popped over to The Awesome Party hosted by Yappem. Besides this party being located at iconic Navy Pier and being a truly awesome party with gourmet goodies and designer raffles, they also had an amazing beauty bar set up. Because I am a self-professed lip gloss junky, I immediately went over to the lip station sponsored by Morgan Marie Beauty. Morgan Marie Beauty is named in honor of it's founders Morgan Byrne & Marie Neri. 

Both ladies are veteran makeup artists and believe in "inspiring confidence in each of their clients and celebrating their individuality". That night I wanted to try something different. They chose the Marilyn lipstick & Gina lip gloss. All I can say is WOW! The colors were so bold and vibrant and they stayed put for the rest of the night. When I got back to my hotel much later that evening, my lips looked just like like they did at the party. As a matter of fact the next morning, my lips still had a slight tint. More of these fab lipsticks and glosses are definitely on my list. 

Can't Wait to Get my Hands on It

A couple of weeks ago while in NYC covering the Paul Wilmot Holiday '13/Resort '14 Press Preview,  I saw a new product from Bite Beauty that immediately had me intrigued. Cashmere Lip Cream is a new cream-to-powder matte lip color that will be released early fall exclusively at Sephora & Sephora.com.

Boasting 6 color packed shades, Cashmere Lip Cream is truly revolutionary. It goes on smooth and creamy thanks to it's advance formulation of butters, waxes and oils, but quickly absorbs to create a super pigmented, powder-lite matte finish. It is long wearing and boasts not only the highest pigment dispersion of any lip gloss, but it also is packed with 5mg of Reservatrol which is full of antioxidants and fights free radicals that causes aging around the lip line. Great lip color now and wrinkle protection for later, what could be better than that? Stay tuned for this one guys. As soon as it's available, I'll be sure to let you know.

So, there you have it. I hope you enjoyed the "Glossy" Beauty Byte segment. The next beauty ritual I will be discussing is mascara, so stay tuned! Until next time, stay glossy!
See you on the front row!
