Gone swatching: bite beauty prismatic pearl multisticks

Blog, Gone swatching

Ciao!

I love bite beauty. You can see all my posts on them here, the Amuse Bouche lipsticks made it into my top list of lipsticks, and the matte multisticks made it into my December favorites!

But these multisticks?

These aren’t great.

I feel bad writing a negative bite beauty post because I really like their products, but I honestly can’t comprehend how these made it past testing. Clearly they were designed for editorial makeup, but they don’t seem good enough for even that.

The highlighter market is so oversaturated at this point, so if a company wants to release something new it should be both high quality and innovative. I can’t really call this innovative because it’s basically creamy glitter.

Overall, I think this is a really bad release. I was so excited because I really love the matte formula, but was disappointed overall.

Ciao!

This month I received a bunch of new products, mainly for the holidays. I’ve been really happy with all of the new things!

Most of these are either for the lips or the face, a nice change of pace from last month’s eye heavy favorites post. This post also includes my first ever nail favorites! Keep reading to see what I loved this month.

Gone swatching: Bite beauty holiday collection

Blog, Gone swatching

Ciao!

In this post I’ll be swatching, reviewing, and calculating the actual value of all the holiday gift sets Bite Beauty has to offer this year.

As with all gift sets, Sephora offers a supposed “value” of the product you’re getting. While it’s easy to tell if that’s true with a couple of full-sized products, things get dicier when you’re dealing with minis, or minis of different prices.

To figure out the true value of a set, first I calculate the price per ounce (like in this post), and then multiply that by the amount of ounces in the kit. From there, I get the true value of the kit. More often than not (unless you’re Hourglass) the value of the kit isย overย the price of the kit, meaning you’re getting more value than you’re paying for, which is good. However, equally often, the value of the kit isย underย the value Sephora states, meaning it’s not as good of a deal as you think it is.

Essentially, I’ll be breaking down the makeup kits Bite Beauty has to offer this year based on their value, and providing swatches. Let’s get into it!
