It has been a whole minute since I had the honor of receiving this Voxbox from Influenster buuuuttt life has been a little hectic and I’ve got a few things you catch you guys up on! First order, of course, is this stunning lipstick range.
IF you aren’t familiar with Influenster and you want to learn how you can get VoxBoxes too, check them out HERE and feel free to comment if you have any questions! I’m happy to answer them for you!
These are from Bite Beauty which has been a long time favorite of mine thanks to their Agave Lip Mask. If you haven’t heard of Bite Beauty, their “claim to fame” if you will is that they use natural ingredients and all their products are food grade. This matters because of the obvious- they go on your lips. You would be shocked if you knew how much makeup you actually ingest in a year (if you wear it, you eat it.). If you don’t gravitate towards natural products (which, I’ll be honest, I don’t always.), you’ll be blown away by this brand simply for the fact that these lippies leave your lips feeling incredible!
I was so excited to be chosen through Influenster to try three of these new shades before they even hit stores. I got (from left to right:) Beetroot, Pepper and Gazpacho. There are actually a whopping 36 shades in this line! These are the Amuse Bouche lipsticks.

Some simple swatches without flash.
When I read about these (and anxiously awaited them arriving) I assumed these would be very oily lipsticks because they contained TWELVE oils. I expected them to be good for my lips because of my experience with the brand and I expected them to be sheer and need to be re-applied often.
I was so, so very wrong.
These lipsticks are creamy and really do leave the lips feeling hydrated and in better condition than before the lipstick was applied but I did not expect just how pigmented these would be nor how long they would last on the lips!
These lasted through meals with ease and I got full opaque coverage in just one pass. For the deeper shades, I did use a touch of lipliner as the last step in application, just to perfect the edges of the lips.
My birthday is in just a few days and these lipsticks are at the very top of my wishlist! I literally want to own them all! I’m so over drying liquid lipsticks and I am so glad to be able to get the color and long lasting pigment that I’m after without hurting my lips like I have been doing!
Have you tried these? If not, hop by Sephora and do it! You won’t regret it!
