Written while really in need of a snack.
Happy Monday and Welcome to Touch of Tay! Here on Touch of Tay, Monday’s are all about makeup, hence the title of this post. I hope everyone had a lovely weekend and are ready for another week of climbing that latter.
Let’s get started.
I have talked about Bite Beauty lip products on this blog before, and today I am adding to the chatter. A few weeks ago, while in Sephora spending all my money, I was drawn into the Bite Beauty lip pencil display.
After swatching all the shades, I found my soulmate in color 020 – being nude. There are 22 shades to pick from, and each pencil is $18.
The formula is pretty drying if you wear it alone which is what I always do since packing on the lip products to go to work isn’t professional where I work. The product did settle into the lines of my lips and kind of get patchy which I didn’t love either.
Overall, I think this is a great lip pencil for the price, but I do believe it is better when another lip product is used on top.
I got the Juara Candenut Body Creme (retails for $35) in my POPSUGAR subscription box, and I wasn’t overly excited because I have very sensitive skin and tend to keep to my usual body lotions. I want to give this product a try, instead of giving it away, because after all, I did pay for it.
I decided the best way to introduce this body creme into my after shower routine was to use it after a shower where I didn’t shave, that way there would less of a possibility for irritation. I waited about 24 hours to see if my skin reacted in any way and to my surprise, nothing happened.
I am going to continue to use this product and see if I can work my way up to using it every day.
This one is random, but I think it would be helpful since I’m not sure if a lot of people know that mini bobby pins exist. Before cutting 7 inches off my hair last week, I watched all of Malibu’s YouTube videos and went to Target to stock up on hair essentials.
If you have short hair, I HIGHLY recommend checking out Malibu’s videos and getting yourself some mini bobby pins!
Thanks so much for spending some time with me on this beautiful Monday and I will see you back here later this week for some more Tay time.
