When it comes to lip products I am most certainly not a “balm” person. During the day I’ll grab a lipstick or a gloss to wear to work. But when I come home and take off my makeup the one thing I make sure to do is moisturize my lips. Lately I’ve collected a few that I absolutely love and wanted to share.
Well, my hopes of keeping my blog going daily through December vanished. Last week we had a massive event at work, which was the kick off to my hectic week. The next night we went out with friends to see Christmas lights. Followed by another work event the next night, and so on. You can see where this is going.
One of the things we did this past weekend was take a trip into NYC, where we had a jam packed day. We started off the day at the Bite Beauty Lab. This is a store where you can go in and create a customized lipstick. There are two different options when you go in – pay $55 for a less customized option with one color and fragrance OR pay $150 for 2 customized colors/fragrances. I did the cheaper option, and it was SO COOL. There are probably 50 different colors to choose from, and they let you try on as many as possible within your allotted timeframe. (OH and make an appointment!!!) I picked two colors and paid $80 for both. Once you pick the colors you can also pick the finish as well – I chose matte. You then pick the scent. After all of that they spin and then freeze the lipstick. 10 minutes later – you’re ready to go!
I had a great staff member helping me – she was so helpful! If you can, definitely give this a go – it was so much fun.
The left one is a lighter nude, and the right one is a berry color. The lighting doesn’t do it justice!
I’m so excited to share my IMATS and Sephora VIB Rouge sale haul (and a few products from CVS too)!
