Best In Nude With Bite Beauty Butter Cream Lipstick

By | makeup, review | No Comments

Our love affair with Bite Beauty is well documented (just click here and here), and now we have another range of lip products from the brand to keep that flame aglow: Bite Beauty Butter Cream Lipstick.

With eight shades all in the nude and neutral spectrum and a creamy satin finish, the Bite Beauty Butter Cream Lipstick is not only wearable, it’s a summer barely-there prerequisite that will become your daily go-to hue(s). You know how some nudes give that dead-girl-just-hopped-out-of-a-coffin look to your precious pout? Not these shades. Each color is designed to enhance your natural lip color. In other words, your lips, just better (with a bit of bite, pun intended).

Why we like it: Besides the buttery cream formula and the universal wearability of the shades, these lipsticks are “handout,” meaning that the manufacturer has removed the outer waxy layer of each lipstick to expose the creamy core. The result is all color and hydration on the first swipe.

Favorite colors:
Cream ($28), an almond nude
Pecan ($28), a warm, dusty pink nude
Caramel ($28), a fleshy nude
Marzipan ($28), a milky chocolate nude (great for darker skin tones)

I’m a huge fan of mists for summer heat and humidity. Back in the day, I used to carry Evian spritzers to the beach and cool off in fashion. Nowadays, there are a plethora of options in the spray department. I just discovered NUDE Advanced Probiotic Skincare Water Sprays… and I’m loving them.

The Water Sprays come in 2 formulas: Hydrating and Clarifying. Both can be used like a toner, on cleansed skin (although not as harsh as a toner) – Just spray on and wipe off with a cotton pad – and as a mid day refresher.

The Hydrating Water is amazing for setting makeup or cooling down overheated skin. The Hydrating formula contains prickly pear to lock moisture into the skin, vanilla floral water to tone and rose flower water to soothe. It smells delish and is a very chic way to refresh.

The Clarifying Water balances and brightens the complexion. It too is a great way to refresh in style. Beta hydroxy acid refines and Irish moss and Siberian Ginseng purify and smooth skin.

Like all NUDE products, the waters are paraben, sulfate, mineral oil and silicone-free. It uses “clinically proven bioactives and probiotics to work with the skin to activate cellular repair and protect against aging.”
