It wasn’t until I got married that I started wearing lipstick. Before that it was always just lip-gloss. It was easy, didn’t leave a mess when I changed clothes, and lip-gloss doesn’t get all over your teeth. Basically – I didn’t know what I was doing.
But my makeup artist for my wedding completely changed all that and I finally see why women across the globe are obsessed with these little tubes of pigment. I’ve now become a lipstick fanatic!
I honestly believe that lipstick is the most important makeup decision you will make on your wedding day. The color you pick can make or break your entire look. Too dark? You’ll look vampy. Too pink? You’ll look immature. Just right? You’ll look amazing!
During my latest Sephora binge shopping spree I met a new lipstick – BITE. The whole theory behind this brand is that the average lipstick wearing woman consumes 5-10 pounds of lipstick over her lifetime. That’s pretty gross.
The difference with Bite is that this Toronto based company uses food grade ingredients and contains no petroleum byproducts or synthetic chemicals. Plus, they produce their lipsticks in small, handcrafted batches. Basically – it’s good enough to eat.
I picked up two tubes, their Luminous Crème Liptstick in Musk and their Lush Liptint in Tangelo. I’ve got to say – Tangelo takes the cake. It’s the perfect coral color and looks flawless dressed up or down.
That color is so great that when I was last in Houston visiting my parents I bought it again (didn’t have the tube on me, couldn’t remember the name, you know how that goes!) AND my mother wears it now too.
Bite also has a lab in New York where for just $28.00 they’ll mix a perfect, unique color, just for you. I really hope to try this out someday.
No matter what color of lipstick you choose for your wedding day, make sure it’s a good one and make sure it’s uniquely you!
