Top 5 Must-Haves from Bite Beauty

We are biased towards Bite Beauty and that’s because every single one of their products has proven to be absolutely amazing. From the different formulas, wear time, shade selection, comfort, packaging, and price point, Bite Beauty really knows what they’re doing when it comes to lips. Toronto-based Bite Beauty is cruelty-free while claiming that their ingredients are good enough to eat. We understand that we all have different food preferences, but let’s stop at eating lipstick. The ingredients, as Teri would say, are not that bad, and she loves several shades and formulation from the brand. We understand that this […]

Review: Gressa Minimalist Serum Foundation

Gressa Minimalist Serum Foundation Gressa Minimalist Serum Foundation is your foundation if you’re looking for a lightweight, buttery smooth, satin finish foundation that has skin-loving properties. I adore the finish and how it glides onto my skin. By the end of the day, my skin is actually amazing and feels and looks even better than when I woke up thanks to their amazing blend of oils and minerals. My shade is in 3.5, which is a medium neutral shade. The foundation can be applied for light coverage and buildable up to medium coverage very comfortably. I love applying it with […]

Base I started by applying Kari Gran Three Six Five […]
