#MOTD: Samples and Travel Size Beauty

Though I don’t post empites on my blog anymore (I use Instagram and Snapchat for that), there is no better feeling than finishing up a product. It’s almost as exciting as trying a new product. That’s exactly why I love trying out sample and travel sized products.
Because of that, as you can imagine, I have quite a few to go through. I have enough to make an entire look using around than $60 while using mainly high-end products. I have listed below where I received these products/whether they were a sample or travel sized. I hope you enjoy the look!

Playing With Lipstick ft Bite Beauty

I am not typically a person who will play around with my lipsticks. I own only a handful of lip liners and my lip real estate isn’t too big. This Valentine’s day, I decided to give it a try.

If there is one thing I do know about lips, it is that they love to be moisturized so I started with this mini Bite Agave Lip Mask. This was my first time trying these particular lip liners and lipsticks so I started simply by lining my lips with the lighter Bite Beauty The Lip Pencil in 20**. This gave me a feel for the creamy formula which has a bit of a satin finish. Following that, I drew a heart with the deeper, red toned brown in the shade 44**. Due to the creamy finish, the colours blended together to create a softer, pinky hue.

To darken both the heart and the rest of my lips, I used the coorisponding lipsticks from Bite Beauty in the Amouse Bouche formula in Honeycomb** and Whiskey**. 

To finish it off, I threw a Bite Beauty gloss on top (my favourite shade in Honey) of Whiskey for some extra dimension and voila: my Valentine’s day lip!

Since this isn’t exactly wearable, i mixed it all together to create one of my favourite lip colours: A mauve-grey gorgeous colour.


I hope you enjoyed my lippie look! I loved creating a design that ended up meshing together so well. That just shows the creamy nature of the formula.
