On Friday my husband and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary (sappy post to follow later this week), and on Thursday he surprised me with a bag from Hillberg & Berk which contained the most beautiful bracelet.
I absolutely love being introduced to new brands, and when they are made in Canada it’s even better. Midnight Hour Beauty is a Canadian indie brand owned by fellow blogger Sarah who has recently re-opened her shop and is developing some beautiful new products that I am excited to share with you today!
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.
Taro is described as Amethyst with Grey Undertones. It’s a limited edition shade that I picked up during the summer and surprisingly is still available! It’s one that even a year ago I would have been nervous about, but now I consider it a very wearable statement lipstick!
Like the rest of the Amuse Bouche line this is extremely creamy and has a light citrus scent/flavor. I find Taro lasts about 5 hours before I feel like I need to reapply and my lips feel hydrated for 2-3 depending on how much I eat/drink.
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!
