|Lip color lovers!|
Well, luckily for me I received a Sephora VIB Rouge Day event, inviting us to the Bite's SoHo boutique to create a complimentary personalized shade of Bite Lipstick. I got there close to 12:45 and waited on the line, fortunately there were only about 5 girls in front of me waiting to get in.
As my turn approached, one of the Bite employees invited me and the girl behind me to get a sneak peak of the Fall 2014 Collection. She swatched the matte cream lip crayons for us, and allowed us to try the new agave lip mask champaign. The colors were all really beautiful, and moisturizing as well.
Then we were introduced to the Bite Lush Lip Wipes. They were strong enough to remove the boldest shades, yet gentle enough to use over and over without drying out the lips. She said the idea came from the fact they had to try on so many lip colors and were over drying their lips as they removed each shade. Since the other client was allergic to some ingredients, the employee told us how that's how Bite came along - the CEO was also allergic to certain ingredients and created a more natural line.
Not only did we get to choose the color and finish, we could put a scent to it, there were seven choices ranging from mangos to vanilla, I chose my favorite - rose. Then I got to watch the fun process of how a lipstick is made. She went to the cabinet full of colorful truffle like pigments and scooped out the colors she needed for my shade, and microwaved it. After adding in the rose fragrance, into the swirly mixing machine (sorry I don't know the name :P). Once it was mixed well, she poured it into the lipstick mode and let it cool down on an iced surface. It was awesome seeing how a lipstick is made, now I know what goes on in a lipstick factory (sort of...).
|Swatch on my hand is surprisingly darker than on the lips!|
|In case anyone liked the color I got, here is the formula! :)|
Sorry I was inspired by the lips on the wall to do this too :P
