Honest Review on BITE BEAUTY's Outburst Longwear Lip Stains (VIDEO)

Bite Beauty is one of those brands that consistently gives us good reliable products. Their lipsticks are creamy, hydrating, and long-lasting and give the high-end stuff a run for their money. Even my dear mom is a HUGE fan of the brand.

They added the Outburst Longwear Lip Stains to their product line up back in May. With only three shades, Sangria Slush (bold true red), Strawberry Frozé (hot pink), and Orange Fizz (bright coral orange), I wish they would have taken the time to create at least 3 more shades to give us a bigger lineup.


SHOP MY FAVOURITE BITE BEAUTY LIP PRODUCTS


I mean, in a way I get it. The concept behind these products is to give us a beautiful, bold lip stain. There’s certainly a lot of versatility here in that it can be worn bold (when applied straight from the tube), or more subtle by dabbing the product onto the lips. (See my YouTube video for comparisons.)

Even still, I find myself not connecting to either colours as I’m going through a nude lipstick stage at the moment. I just wish Bite could have given us a nude option, but perhaps that would defeat the purpose of these Lip Stains all together.

Regardless, these Stains are awesome, long-wearing and do stain the lips (and hands as I discovered while filming this video) for a good amount of time. They’re vegan, cruelty-free, and gluten-free and are available exclusively to Sephora and Bite Beauty. They’re also part of the permanent collection so who knows, maybe they’ll expand their shade range somewhere down the road.

The Perfect Summer Lip?! LANCÔME Mademoiselle Shine Lipsticks, Review + Swatches

With summer here I’ve switched my usual matte lipstick for something lighter. These new Lancôme L’Absolu Mademoiselle Shine lipsticks launched last month and I’m already addicted to them.

They feel like a juicy lip balm on the lips but have a lighter consistency than a gloss or a lipstick. 

The shiny finish almost reminds me of a gloss, but it feels and looks more natural. Almost like your lips but better.

The shades are also buildable - dab it on for a sheer wash of colour or apply it straight from the bullet for a stronger pigment. Alternatively, line your entire lips with a matching lip liner for a full colour pay off with a glossy finish that will last.  

Speaking of which, the longevity of these Mademoiselle Shine lippies is pretty good. It lasts through food and drinks, which I’m a big fan of.

Finally, if you’re sensitive to smells then you’ll appreciate these. There’s no offensive odor or taste and, doesn’t have that usual Lancôme lipstick smell. Hands up if you know what I’m talking about.

That aside, definitely check these out if you’re a fan of tinted lipsticks.

GUERLAIN Rouge G Customizable Lipsticks (new shades & cases)

Last year the Guerlain Rouge G lipsticks where all over social media and I have to admit, I was intrigued. I finally got a chance to try these out for myself after receiving them in PR.

One thing I have to admit is that I had no clue that a mirror was hidden in the clunky lipstick lid. I thought it was purely for design but it turns out to also have a purpose. In addition to that, I also didn’t realize that the cases are purchased separately, therefore making your entire lipstick completely customizable.

I can get behind that.

With 41 shades and three finishes, there’s something for everyone here.

Christian Audette x Beauty Professor

Christian+Audette+x+Beauty+Professor+lipstick+collection%2C+Golightly%2C+Johannah%2C+Elle+-+beauty+blog+lipsick.me+by+Nathalie+Martin_3225-2.jpg

As a true lipstick enthusiast, I often want to start my posts expressing how excited I am to be writing about yet another amazing tube of lipstick, but honestly, it couldn’t be more true right now. When I got Beauty Professor’s collaboration with Christian Audette in the mail I let out a little scream followed by “OMG RACHEL!”

For those who don’t know Rachel Anise is the beauty writer behind one of my favourite sites, Beauty Professor. She is a public speaker, model, actress, all around lover of luxury beauty, and fellow beauty blogger. She’s also happens to be new mother and when I held her three piece lipstick collaboration in my hands I have to admit that I teared up a little and thought “This is your year, Rachel.”

Mushy feelings and well wishes aside, let’s dive into the collaboration between Beauty Professor x Christian Audette, a brand that is admittedly new to me.

Christian Audette is a cosmetics brand that specializes in producing vegan and cruelty free products. Their formulas are rich, creamy, and intensely pigmented, antioxidant rich and paraben-free.

For her collaboration with Christian Audette, Rachel stayed true to her voice and created three nude shades that range from pink (Elle), to more neutral (Johanna), to peach (Golightly). The lipsticks come in a keepsake cosmetics bag bearing the CA x BP logo. The lipsticks are long lasting and I was pleasantly surprised to see it still on even after I had been snacking and drinking coffee.

CHRISTIAN AUDETTE x BEAUTY PROFESSOR

JOHANNA: A quintessential pinky nude cream, named after Rachel’s baby daughter.

GOLIGHTLY: The exact shade of opaque peachy beige with a satin finish that Audrey Hepburn wears in Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

ELLE: A universally flattering and buildable cool baby pink with a touch of luminosity. The name has special significance for both her mom and daughter and thus is an homage to women of all generations.

$60 USD, exclusive to christianaudette.com
*Above shade descriptions as per the website.

The CA x BP collection is beautiful and while I can see it working well for those who love nudes. I have a preference towards nudes that are more towards the medium end of the shade spectrum so I’ll be wearing a medium nude pencil underneath my lipstick. That way I can enjoy the collection while having it cater to my shade preference. Never under estimate the colour of a good lip pencil!

Congratulations Rachel for creating such a beautiful collection. I can’t wait to see what you’ll do next! Thank you for including me on the launch. I’m beyond honoured and flattered.

Giorgio Armani Rouge D'Armani Matte Lipsticks

I have a special place in my heart for Armani lipsticks seeing as they were one of my first luxury beauty splurges. Even back in those days, I’d carry numerous tubes of red lipsticks with me at all times because god forbid I be caught not wearing lipstick. #highmaintenance

These days I’m more chill about my approach to beauty but regardless, anytime I see a tube of Armani, I know I’ll be getting something special.

The new Rouge D'Armani Matte Lipsticks are no exception. Lightweight, silky smooth, highly pigmented, and never drying, these mattes are super comfortable to wear.

Considering I’ve been living in Saint Laurent sneakers and sweats these days, comfort is key in my life. I’ve even simplified my makeup routine to a swipe of CHANEL mascara, rosy pink cheeks, and a bold lipstick. If it’s gonna dry out lips, I don’t want it in my life. If it’s too complicated to apply, no thanks.

These days I’m more inclined to bring just a single tube of lipstick with me when I’m out. The me from years ago wouldn’t even know what hit her.

L'ORÉAL x ISABEL MARANT: THE ENTIRE WANTED COLLECTION

L'Oréal Paris x Isabel Marant, entire collection review, matte lipsticks - photos by nathalie martin for lipsick.me_2661.jpg

The collaboration I’ve been waiting for since it’s announcement is finally here - L’Oréal x Isabel Marant!

Called the WANTED collection, it consists of seven matte lipsticks, a lip gloss in a universally flattering pink, clear brow/lash mascara, a duo eyeshadow palette, and a peachy-pink highlighter/glow product that comes in a little pot for on the go application.

I feel like the Parisian designer stayed true to her voice in her first ever makeup line and even though the collection feels small, it makes a lot of sense. Like her eponymous fashion line, all of the shades can be easily dressed up for evening, or dressed down during the day.

Think of a nude lip and rosy cheek for a Sunday afternoon, or, a red lip and soft black eyeshadow for a night out. The shades celebrate woman without being too overt or sexy and focuses more on her individuality to bring the makeup to life.

Honestly, I’m just relieved all of the shades are flattering and wearable for every day. It’s my biggest pet peeve when makeup brands collaborate with someone only to come out with unwearable crayon-coloured shades that barely suit anyone.

As a big Isabel Marant fan myself (she’s honestly one of my favourite designers), I can safely say that everyone will enjoy these incredibly chic shades.

The limited edition collab is out now at loreal.ca and at retailers where L’Oréal Paris is sold.

ISABEL MARANT MATTE FINISH LIPSTICK SMILE

Seven matte lipsticks can be found in the Isabel Marant WANTED collection.

BASTILLE WHISTLE - nude pink
LA SEINE SHADOW - brown pink
BELLEVILLE RODEO - dark purple red
PIGALLE WESTERN - bright red pink
SAINT GERMAIN ROAD - true blue red
PALAIS ROYAL FIELD - warm red
LA BUTTE MARSHALL - medium red

Each matte lipstick says “SMILE” on one side and “WEAR NOTHING BUT A SMILE AND YOUR STYLE” on the other side. Sooooo Isabel Marant!

ISABEL MARANT MAGIC BEAUTIFIER LIP GLOSS AMAZE

The product I turned out to really be impressed is the AMAZE lip gloss that comes in one shade - a sheer soft magenta-y pink shade that can be used on the lips and cheeks and that’s said to be universally flattering but I’ve only tried it on my light-medium olive skin and I freakin’ love it!

ISABEL MARANT DUO EYESHADOW

The duo eyeshadow pan created for the WANTED collab features a matte black which is perfect for using as eyeliner, and an iridescent black/teal shade that has an elegant pop to it. Use it with makeup brushes or apply it with your fingers for a “perfectly imperfect” look.

ISABEL MARANT UNIVERSAL HIGHLIGHTER SHINE

Since this entire collaboration is so, so good, I almost hate to admit that the highlighter is the one product I could do without. It’s a said to be a universal illuminator but it’s on the matte side and there’s hardly any reflects it in. It feels like a silicone based product and has that silicone texture I don’t like.

I applied it over top of my cheeks on a day I was wearing a light powder foundation and it actually disturbed my makeup. Honestly, I can’t figure out how to use this product or what it’s for. If you figure it out, please leave me a comment! Maybe I’m using it all wrong!
