Trying Out Sephora’s Birthday Gift 2018- Bite Beauty

My first reaction when I opened the box up was omg this is wayyyy too cute to use! I mean everything inside was so tiny and adorable especially the lipstick.

But a few days ago I finally remembered I still hadn’t tried the stuff out and decided to try it out and review the products for you guys!

So I started with the lip scrub. It smelt amazing and it worked great too. My lips were slightly more plumped and definitely a lot more smoother.

Next I tried out the lip balm which again smelt amazing and definitely left my lips smoother. It also tasted good which made it difficult to stop myself from eating it (yes I have no self control…)

Then I tried out the lip liner which smelt AMAZING!! The color was a perfect natural color for my lips and skin tone and looked really natural even though I over-lined my lips.

Finally, I tried the lipstick which was so tiny and adorable I really just wanted to save it and never use it! It of course as you can predict smelt amazing and it had a very matte but not at all drying effect. The color was adorable and perfect for if you are going for a natural look. However, I had to use it multiple times to get it to show up which I thought was a little annoying since it was so tiny to begin with.

I went to eat after putting it on and unfortunately it did not last at all whatsoever. I had to keep reapplying it all through the day. It was a really pretty color and looked and felt amazing but it’s not something I would actually buy if I’m being totally honest because I just don’t think it would be worth it.

Tips for Dry Skin

As you guys know I have dry skin and I think these tips are super helpful especially with winter around the corner!

Beautyholics101

Hello my loves! As December rolls upon us i thought i would delight you guys with some tips and tricks for dry skin. As i have mentioned before in previous blogs, i have suffered from dry hair, oily hair and dry and oily skin throughout my life. So i understand how hard the struggle is.

Here are some things that i did to help my dry skin feel less bothersome.

I found that after taking showers often times made my skin feel worse afterwards. You would think that all you have to do is put on some lotion. FALSE! There are times when not even lotion would help.

Don’t take long showers:

I know how relaxing a good long 30min shower can feel after a long day, but having your skin in the water for that long really isnt good for your skin. Try and limit your showers to 5-10…

5 Kat Von D Lipstick Shades You Need This Fall

Kat Von D’s makeup line is known for their Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks because they actually are the closest thing to everlasting that I’ve come across so far! Kat Von D products are cruelty free and vegan. Here are five shades that would be perfect for fall even though I know fall is technically half way through!

Lolita I- This is honestly my favourite shade like ever. I wear it all the time all year around but it looks extra amazing in fall since it’s more brownish and looks perfect with the changing of the leaves and weather. Also this is the perfect shade for people with olive skin looking for a nude lipstick that doesn’t look weird.

Lolita II- Another perfect shade for fall. It’s really beautiful and again since it’s more orange it looks great in fall with the changing leaves.

Madrid

Madrid- This is more of a warm redwood color and again a really perfect nude lipstick for people with olive skin.

Bow N Arrow

Bow N Arrow- I never get tired of brown shades and this is another one that is just so warm and perfect for fall.

Image result for kat von d outlaw

Outlaw-  Don’t worry this isn’t another brown shade! This one is a brick red because red always looks classy and elegant especially in fall when some of the trees are all red and pretty!

ELF BB Cream With SPF 20 Review

I have started using this product for a few weeks now and I decided to do a little review about it because I was so freaking impressed! Now if you’ve read any of my other makeup posts you’ll know I love ELF and it’s my favourite vegan and cruelty free beauty brand right now. It was so affordable, honestly, when I first bought an e.l.f product I was like that’s suspicious like do they not have good quality products but they do!

Image result for suspicious gif

Anyway, back to the BB cream, I was again a little skeptical because I’m not a big fan of BB creams or foundation because I have pretty dry skin and a lot of foundations and BB creams I tried prior to this ended up making my skin look even dryer and sometimes flaky.

Image result for moisturise me gif

I bought the product a while back but I didn’t actually try it till I got back to Kenya and I was left speechless (which is shocking for me I talk about everything including the taste of water). To begin with it was so creamy and beautiful it made my skin look not only hydrated but radiant and my face seemed to glow! I have NEVER used a foundation or BB cream that made me look like that and I was always trying to look for products to make me look like that.

Image result for wow gif

Secondly, the product had an amazing coverage for a BB cream- usually I have do like 2 layers with BB cream to get that much coverage but this had the coverage of a foundation! Although I do have to point out that I don’t have any acne or scars or noticeable marks on my face I just have some discolouration so I don’t need that much coverage- if you do have any of the above use a concealer as well as the BB cream because even though it does have great coverage it’s not a concealer. But anyway, it did cover up my skin really well.

Thirdly, it was so lightweight and natural looking that you can totally wear it on a daily basis and no one would even realise you’re wearing any makeup! It blends really well and looks so natural you just look like you have a nice natural glow.

Image result for wow gif

Lastly, it costs $6.00 and weighs 285ml which is super affordable even for a drugstore brand! It’s also packaged really well so you can easily travel with it or carry it around with you in case you want to retouch your makeup although honestly, I wear it all day sometimes and it doesn’t move an inch.

Image result for yas gif

FINAL THOUGHTS: To sum it up I was super impressed with this product! It’s really affordable, has an amazing formula, works for both dry and oily skin plus as an extra added bonus it’s both vegan and cruelty free!

How I Saved My Skin

For as long as I can remember I’ve always had pretty dry skin. As a kid I had a little bit of an eczema problem but luckily (fingers crossed!) I’m okay now but I still have really sensitive and dry skin. I try to avoid using a lot of chemicals on my skin and I only rarely do full face makeup. Even though a lot of companies swear that their products work for people with sensitive skin they don’t usually work for me. However, a few months ago I subscribed to Ipsy and got my first Ipsy Bag. I’m not going to lie, it was kind of disappointing and even though the products I got were good they just weren’t what I was looking for at the moment. But, there was one thing that blew my mind away! That was the First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream. Again, I’m going to be honest and say that I had actually not heard of FAB before this so I did what any normal human would do- I Googled.

Turns out FAB creates all these amazing products for people with sensitive skin. So I began using the lotion and to my surprise it made my skin so much better! It didn’t look all dead and dry anymore and it actually had a healthy glow to it! Plus, the lotion is so light you don’t even feel like you have something on your face which is awesome because a lot of products are heavy and it feels like you have so much product on your face! I use it on a daily basis- once after I take a shower and once before I go to sleep at night. The one I get is travel sized so I can carry it around with me and take it with me when I travel! However, they do have a bigger size in case you’re interested.

Anyway, I just wanted to share this product with you in case you’re suffering from any skin problems and need to find products for sensitive skin. This is just something I found and I thought I would share with you guys!

Makeup Products I Hated

Maybelline Strobing Stick- I’m a really big fan of Maybelline and I’ve liked almost all their products but this product just fell short. It didn’t have a great glow and it kind of just looked weird because you have to wear so much of it.

Image result for maybelline highlighter stick

E.L.F Highlighter- I’m a big fan of both E.L.F and powder highlighters so I thought this would work out great but I really hated this highlighter. I know some makeup guru’s/bloggers really like it but this just wasn’t for me.  It didn’t have that much glow and it was really flaky and hard to use.

Image result for elf highlighter

E.L.F Lip Primer and Plumper– I didn’t have any particular problem with this product except that I don’t think it works. The primer part is fine but the plumper in my experience just didn’t work. I already have pretty large lips so I didn’t mind that much since it hydrated them really well and since it tingled it made them nice and pink but for someone who has smaller lips and is looking for an actual way to plump their lips this product is just not for you.

Image result for elf primer and plumper

Covergirl Mascara- Compared to other mascaras I’ve used this just doesn’t cut it. It looks okay but it really isn’t anything to brag about. It does make your lashes slightly darker and fuller but if you’re looking for a really full look this is not for you.

Image result for covergirl mascara

Nyx Stay Matte But Not Flat Foundation– This actually looked really good when I put it on but it really didn’t stay on well. After a few hours it started to smudge and move around and I ended up looking like a crazy person! I thought maybe the problem was me and I wasn’t using it right so I looked at other reviews and I saw that many people had similar experiences to mine. If you’re looking for a good matte foundation I would recommend Maybelline (not vegan or cruelty free) or ELF (vegan and cruelty free) or Eco Beauty Crew (cruelty free and has vegan options).

My Favourite Vegan Makeup Brands: Arbonne

Again this is another one of those brands that I had heard about but I didn’t know much about till just some time ago. As usual I was going through vegan makeup posts on Instagram and I ended up seeing a lot of posts about Arbonne which obviously made me a little curious!

Image result for arbonne makeup

Turns out they are vegan, cruelty-free , non-GMO, Kosher and gluten free. They are not crazy expensive but they are on the expensive side so if you’re looking for super affordable makeup this is not for you but if you don’t mind the price and want really good quality makeup then I suggest taking a look at their site!

Image result for arbonne makeup

I really like that they are free of a lot of other things too because most makeup brands that are vegan and cruelty free aren’t always free of other things and not everyone can use them!

Image result for arbonne makeup

They ship to the US, UK, Canada, Poland, New Zealand, Australia and Taiwan. They use pure, safe and beneficial products which are said to help your skin stay healthy. I would especially recommend this brand if you have really sensitive skin because I do and sometimes some brands don’t work well with my skin and I end up having breakouts.
