bite beauty mauvember 2016

bite beauty mauvember 2016The hairiest month of the year has arrived, and Bite Beauty is celebrating it with another limited edition lipstick inspired by Founder Susanne Langmuir’s father beating prostate cancer. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Movember, men all over the country shave their face and grow out their mustaches throughout November to raise awareness and money for cancer. The Movember Foundation started in 2003 and raised $17.5 million in 2015 alone, funding over 1,000 programs for mens issues focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity. Over 5 million men now participate every year, and 83% of funds raised are allocated to men’s health programs.

Some eye-opening stats from Movember Canada
Prostate cancer Prostate cancer kills 35 men every hour.
Testicular cancer is the most common cancer in men under 40.
• Every minute a man dies from suicide.
• Only 1 in 4 Canadian men met the CSEP exercise guideline of 150 minutes per week

On to the lipstick – Mauvember 2016 has more of a pink tone than last year (comparison shots below), and it’s in the new Amuse Bouche formula which I love. It also has an adorable mustache print on one side, and 2016 on the other. The other big change is that this year it is available in both Canada and the United States! One hundred percent of BITE’s proceeds and half of all Mauvember 2016 lipstick sales go directly to the Movember Foundation, so it’s a wonderful way to support a great cause… and get a beautiful new lipstick!

bite beauty amuse bouche in eggplant

bite beauty amuse bouche lipstick in eggplantSo I may have become a bit obsessed with these Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche lipsticks… I just can’t help it… they’re all so pretty. When they were first launched I picked up three of them, and instantly wanted to own them all. (now only 30 more to go)

Swipe on bold, creamy lip color with Bite Beauty’s Amuse Bouche. Created and crafted by hand, Bite’s small batch, low-heat process preserves a balanced blend of lip-quenching nutrients, vitamins, and omega oils that are essential for achieving healthy-looking lips. Made with 12 edible oils and triple milled pigments, this lipstick provides saturated lip color with weightless coverage and a citrus flavor made from fresh pressed fruit.

Eggplant is described as a mid-tone smokey plum. It is ridiculously creamy, the citrus scent/flavor is amazing and fades after about 10-15 minutes of wearing it. I reapplied after lunch and won’t need to reapply again! I don’t own many purple lipsticks, it isn’t typically a shade that I am drawn to… but this one was just so freaking pretty I had to own it, and I’m so glad I do! The photos below had to be taken with flash as I still don’t have great morning light yet, so in person it’s a bit darker, but not by much!

While $30 may seem like a lot for a lipstick, I think they are worth every penny. They are hand made in Toronto and all Bite Beauty lip products are made with natural and food-grade ingredients, and do not contain petrochemicals, parabens, sulphates, or phthalates. They are also certified gluten-free!

bite beauty amuse bouche in beetroot

bite beauty amuse bouche lipstick in beetrootBite Beauty recently released a new lipstick line called Amuse Bouche – with 34 stunning shades to choose from it was hard to choose only 3 to buy

Swipe on bold, creamy lip color with Bite Beauty’s Amuse Bouche. Created and crafted by hand, Bite’s small batch, low-heat process preserves a balanced blend of lip-quenching nutrients, vitamins, and omega oils that are essential for achieving healthy-looking lips. Made with 12 edible oils and triple milled pigments, this lipstick provides saturated lip color with weightless coverage and a citrus flavor made from fresh pressed fruit.

Beetroot is a rich berry infused with deep red. It is ridiculously creamy, the citrus scent/flavor is amazing and fades after about 10-15 minutes of wearing it. Like with Radish, when I wear this I typically end up applying a bit of clear lipgloss after lunch and I’m set for the rest of the day!

While $30 may seem like a lot for a lipstick, I think they are worth every penny. They are hand made in Toronto and all Bite Beauty lip products are made with natural and food-grade ingredients, and do not contain petrochemicals, parabens, sulphates, or phthalates.
