Tempting Tuesday: Bite Beauty Champagne Cuvee Deluxe Lipstick Collection

Usually when you get a lipstick collection like this, you love one and the rest are “meh”. “Meh” maning I could take ‘em or leave ‘em.
Well, I am happy to report that this is NOT the case with Bite Beauty Champagne Cuvee Deluxe Lipstick Collection ($72).

This comely collection is as pretty to look at as a colorful bowl of candy…hence the adorable staging.

Bite Beauty Champagne Cuvee Deluxe Lipstick Collection ($72)

Besides being candy-colored comely, this beautiful collection is also derived from French champagne grapes, freshwater Tahitian Black Pearl and Japanese silk powder. And the uber-special antioxidant benefits and resveratrol from the grapes tackle fine lines to store and protect lips. In fact, they’re so special, that they are limited to an exclusive batch of 1200 lipsticks per shade!

Longwearing, intense color coupled with creamy, antioxidant-filled moisture leads to a fabulous, foolproof, featherweight finish.

Each one of these 4 colors made me feel beautiful and, well, like a different person. I felt like I was playing a beautiful character with each lip color I put on for the day. I started with the boldest hue – Cuvee Rose (rose pink).

And I wore it… A LOT. To three events, one party and around the house more than I’d care to admit.

Bite Beauty Cuvee Rose rosied up my world!


Next up? The Cuvee Coral (vibrant coral). A gorgeous punchy coral with a kick – a little spice, if you will. I am loving it so much right now that I wore it all day today and then used it to express my Twitter love on the mirror! Thanks again, y’all! 11,000 followers? I’m overwhelmed and humbled.

And I haven’t played the other ones as much as the top two but after trying them on today for this post, I will be “dawning” the heck out of ‘em with a smoky eye!

Makeup Monday: Bobbi Brown Heart Creamy Matte Lip Color

I’m in love.

For real.

It’s true and real and my heart constantly goes pitter-pat, pitter-pat.

My lover, you ask? A lipstick. But not just any lipstick.

Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Color in Heart.

It makes me feel prettier, more glamorous and, well, SEXIER! Ooh-la-la!

As part of Bobbi’s Pink & Red Collection, it is THE PERFECT lip color choice for Valentine’s Day this year.

The ultimate romantic – it is the perfect marriage of rich pigment, matte creaminess, ultimate wearability and long-lasting luscious color. It wears for up to 8 HOURS and it does all this while feeling lovely, lightweight and comfortable. And it doesn’t dry out your lips like some matte lip colors are prone to do.
I didn’t even know that was possible!

You know how you’re always checking your lipstick on a date? Well, you won’t be doing that thanks to this beauty so your date will be even more romantic than ever!

So have some Heart, Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Color in Heart, that is!

Whatcha’ Wearin’ Wednesday: Well in LA’s Erin M.?

I am a big fan of Erin M’s wellness blog, Well in L.A.. Her blog is a mecca for those who are healthy hotties in L.A. and those of us, like me, are trying to get there every day.

So I was thrilled when I ran into her recently at Fashion’s Night Out on Robertson. We had a ball – giggling, gushing and guzzling a little champ – as we bloggers tend to do. And I got the scoop on her goooooorgeous look! Here is our WWW girl – Erin M.

The gorgeous Erin Michelle of Well in LA & her ButterLONDON lips

BF: Oh my gosh, Erin! Your lips are like a video vixen in 1988. What product are you wearing? Tell me everything. And fast so I can go get it myself!

EM: I have a secret place I love to shop in Manhattan Beach! (hint: my signature scent, picturedhere, is also the name of the store!) The last time I was in the store the gals introduced me to a new product from butterLONDON. This Brit line is best known for their rich, earth-friendly nail lacquers and polishes. Well, ladies, get ready to be a little bit LIPPY I am beyond obsessed with their new line of richly-pigmented and ultra-moisturizing lip glosses.

BF: Tell the folks where this Lippy love fest all happened.

EM:  I debuted my LIPPY “Come To Bed Red” at FashionsNightOutonRobertson this year, where I was wearing a “neutral” palette of mixed metals and a dark gray faux fur from Hale Bob. Adding a red lip was the “icing on the cake” for the outfit, so to speak.

BF: I looooooove ButterLONDON Lippy. Love it! Stays on and color stays true through everything you do. Gosh, that sounds like a commercial.

The gorgeous hostesses of Fashion's Night Out on Robertson at Hale Bob

BF: Who are those gorgeous ladies with you in the pic? (I know but I just have to ask for you lovely readers out there)

EM: For the evening I was flanked by my very beautiful FNO co-hostesses, Sharzad Kiadeh of LuxLyfe and Celebrity Stylist LaurieGraham. Not to mention the incredible ladies who came out to party with us like Ms. Beauty Frosting herself, NicoleMyden and Whitney Lader of HoopLA (also featured on the WWW series!). I adore makeup, clothing and all the accessories, but there is nothing that beats being surrounded by fierce, intelligent female friends!

BF: How did you decide on ButterLONDON Lippy gloss when there are sooooo many products we are introduced to as an L.A. blogger?

EM: I loved the rockstar outfit I was wearing and wanted to keep the focal point on the clothes that were being provided for the eventbyHaleBob. But let’s be honest, there’s no need to shy from a little extra “pop” of confidence, even when we’re wearing an amazing outfit. For me it’s something small with a big impact, like my signature scent, a killer manicure, a brightly colored lip or even my favorite lingerie. Girls really do have more fun!

BF: Would you wear this every day? Give us a little taste of your beauty philosophy, pretty please.

EM: I love to wear an outfit or makeup that makes me feel confident every day. I don’t wait for a special occasion or event. Why not make each day a little special? I do follow the rule of only highlighting one thing at a time, whether its an outfit, playing up my eyes or wearing a bright lip. Lips are probably my favorite to play with because its so simple to swipe on a bold color and showcase your confidence with every girl’s ultimate accessory: a big smile.

BF: How does wearing this product affect the rest of your routine? (i.e., “This is a bold lip shade so I like to go simple with the eyes and add a pop of blush on the apples of my cheeks)

EM: I try to behave and only have one piece “pop” instead of doing too much at once. If I’m just wearing my LIPPY red I keep the rest of my makeup simple – tinted moisturizer, a little swipe of ColorTattooEyeshadow (gold and bronze are my picks for blue eyes) and myfavoritemascara – and I’m out the door in under 5 minutes.


ButterLONDON Lippy gloss


BF: Is this a signature shade/product for you? If not, what is – as they say in Steel Magnolias – your “signature color”?

EM: I think it’s fast becoming one! As a blonde with fair skin and blue eyes, red lips are a lot of fun to play with when it comes to makeup. I also love CovergirlsLipPerfection in Flame, which is a more matte lipstick (comparable to MAC but great for girls on a budget!). It offers a rich stain. So much so that when I wear it for a night out and wake the next morning I still have a pretty red shade on my lips, making running errands or going to brunch a little more fun on the weekends!

Thank you so much, Erin for being our beautiful Whatcha’ Wearin’ Wednesday girl today!

BF Asks: Are you adventurous enough to try a bold lip this season? What bold lip are you donning?

Mailbox Monday: Dear Dawn – Lip Color fit for a Fall Bride

Dear Dawn,

I am getting married in 3 weeks and there are lots of events coming up in anticipation of the big day. That sounds great, right? Well, I have one little problem. I need lip color help stat! We have pictures coming up and I have no idea what my lips should wear. I have long dark brown hair, brown eyes and fair skin. Thoughts?

(Meg F)

Hi Meg,
What an exciting time in your life! Congratulations!! And it’s the perfect time to discover your signature lip color. I always say that your wedding day should be you at your beautiful best. You don’t want to try to look like someone else but simply be the best version of yourself. That’s who he fell in love with, after all, isn’t it?

Also, it’s good to establish an everyday shade that makes you feel like the pretty beauty you are and then, if you decide, you can step up the color a bit for the big day. But for engagement parties/showers/rehearsal dinner/photos, etc., I think it’s good to aim for subtle color.

So, on that note, let’s talk shades. From the details you provided, I would suggest trying a blue-based pink, lilac or a sheer-cherry popsicle-fizzy red. Here are a few that you simply cannot go wrong with:

Blue-Based Pinks:

Lipstick Queen Glossy Pencil in Crime ($20)

This true-bridal pink is sure to please for pictures!

Tarte Lipsurgence Natural Lip Tint in Amused ($24)


Sheer-Cherry Popsicle-Fizzy Red - by fizzy, I mean shimmering, of course!

Tarte Lipsurgence Lip Luster in Fever ($24)

Try these shades out over the next few months. When you wear a color that makes you feel both comfortable and pretty and that brings out your best features, you know you’ve found the “right one”. It’s a lot like love that way!

BF Tip: Take pics with your trial lip colors on phone see how you look in varying shades of light. You might find that the color you love to wear everyday (like that bare nude that looks oh-so-natural) might just wash you out in pictures. See what color makes you glow and look like the happy bride-to-be that you truly are!

Enjoy this magical time, Meg! And please send pics of your lovely lip colors along the way!
