The Hookup: Bite Beauty Papaya and NARS Dolce Vita

Published in: Bite Beauty, Makeup, NARS, Product Reviews

Magic happens when you wear Bite Beauty Multistick in Papaya and NARS Blush in Dolce Vita together

I’m thinking about starting a series on the blog called “The Hookup…”

No, it does not sound nasty! 🙂 It’s not like nasty Hollywood hookups, although it does freak me out a little when I hear teenagers say the word “hookup.”

The idea is product pairings for things that I like to wear together, because I figure, there are so many products out there, and it’s not always easy to find stuff that looks good together.

In the look I’m wearing here, I’m using Bite Beauty Multistick in Papaya, which you can use as an eyeshadow, blush and a lipstick, and I’m wearing it as both a blush and a lipstick.

I’ve paired it with NARS Dolce Vita blush, which is one of my favorite NARS blushes of all time. In fact, I think it was the first (or the second?) NARS blush I ever bought, but don’t quote me on that.

Anyway, both have rosy tones, but Dolce Vita has a little more gold in it, and I think it goes great with Papaya.

You could wear it as a blush and use Papaya as a lipstick, or use Papaya as a cream blush and apply Dolce Vita on top, which is how I’m using it here.

I love this combo, and I think it’s really pretty with neutral eyes.

What’s one of your favorite product hookups right meow?

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

The new Bite Beauty Multisticks ($24 each)

Hand on my heart, my hoops and my high hair — today is the day I’m getting serious, y’all. I’m going to set down the Nutella jar and commit to get back into shape.

I will also do my level best to ignore the fact that every time I see one of these $24 Bite Beauty Multisticks…I wanna chomp into it like it’s a Twinkie.

On paper, you totally could eat these multipurpose makeup sticks for eyes, cheeks and lips because, like all Bite Beauty products, they’re made with food-grade ingredients, but I haven’t tried it yet… But ya never know. I probably will. I have licked a lipstick before in the pursuit of makeup curiosity, haha!

So, yeah, you could eat these if ya wanted to (which is nice to know, I suppose), but I don’t know if I’ve ever wanted to wear a creamy reddish brown like Almond on my eyes, my lips and my cheeks at the same time… It seems like it would be a little much, right? Like a dude wearing one too many gold chains?

The Day in Beauty Vol. 23: I Love the ’90s and Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Whiskey

Published in: Bite Beauty, Just For Fun

Wearing Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Whiskey

Good morning, glory! Rise and shine! 🙂

This is Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Whiskey ($26), a dark reddish brown with a satin finish, and it’s very much like something I would have worn back in the day while listening to the fabulous vocal stylings of Color Me Badd and Coolio.

YEAH! I’m headed to an I Love the ’90s concert tonight, so I’m wearing a ’90s-style lipstick this morning to get in the spirit.

Both Color Me Badd and Coolio are performing at the concert, along with (wait for it!) Vanilla Ice (OMG), Tone Loc, Rob Base and Young MC.

The concert is in the town of Jackson, California, east of Sacramanto — HELLOOOO, JACKSON! — so if you’re out that way, wassup? I’ll be in your neck of the woods tonight!

Anyway, that’s my big adventure this weekend.

Bite Beauty Sweet & Savory Collection

Whiskey, by the way, is from the Bite Beauty Sweet and Savory Collection of six Amuse Bouche Lipsticks that came out last spring, but there are more than 40 Amuse Bouche Lipsticks total in the Bite Beauty line, so it’s very extensive (they’re $26 each).

The Amuse Bouche Lipsticks made a big splash last spring when they arrived on counters. They’re bold, lightweight and creamy with an uber-hydrating formula (each lippie contains 12 edible oils), and they’re absolutely lovely.

What the Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayons Are Really Thinking About at Sephora, Plus New Divergent-Themed Makeup and Givenchy Ombre Couture

Published in: Bite Beauty, Makeup, Sephora

A visit to Sephora


The following is an un-redacted transcript of a conversation that occurred among the six $24 limited edition Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayons at the Novato, California, Sephora store at precisely 9:55 a.m. on Wednesday, April 2, 2014.

KUMQUAT: Wake up, you guys! Show time in five minutes. Chop-chop!

GRAPE: Awwww, come on, man! Just 10 more minutes, please? I’m so sleepy…

KUMQUAT: No way, Grape. Everyone, UP! UP! UP! We need to look perky when the store opens. Remove your caps, back straight, and get in position. Stand proud like the pigmented lipsticks you are!

CLEMENTINE: Geez Louise, Kumquat! — chill! I don’t see why we have to hurry. I mean, who visits a Sephora at 10 o’clock sharp on a Wednesday?

We have time. Let’s have a nice breakfast together as a family for once. I could make those pigment pancakes you like? 🙂

KUMQUAT: Absolutely not. I shouldn’t have to say this, again, but we stand at the front of the store.

The front of the store! Do you have any idea what that means?! We have to look our best every day. It’s…

Wait — shhh! Don’t make a sound. Someone just walked through the door…


SATSUMA: Oh, it’s that same girl from the other day again, the one who’s always covered in cat hair.

Why is she always here?! And doesn’t she have one of those pet hair roller things? I mean, come on! This is Sephora, for crying out loud. Sacred ground. People be rollin’ up here in skinny jeans lookin’ like they just fell out of bed two minutes ago.

SWEETY: Be nice, Satsuma. I see her all the time. She’s actually pretty cool. She takes pics and swatches for her friends. I think she’s on YouTube…

BLOOD ORANGE: Oh, really? Pictures, you say? Well, point her my way because I love having my picture taken.


KUMQUAT: Just stop it already! She’s coming over. Remember, the customers can’t know that we talk amongst ourselves. We’re supposed to be inanimate. Stand straight, shut up and sit still. It’s time to go to work!
