Thanks @eshoe ! I thought the same thing about the Bite scrub. Since I use lip scrubs only once or twice a month, I'll probably have this jar for a good 2 years. 🀣

That’s a good bet, @WinglessOne. Reminds me I need to mark some of my products to see how long they take to finish…

@TeamBIC   I don't know how you manage, with each and every gratis gifting, to time these so well to be an extra special treat!  And, once again, introduce me at least, to some new items that I end up loving! Thank you so, so very much!

I have to say, I was a little nervous trying out some of these shades, but all of them can work well for me!

My husband tried to kiss me while I was trying all of these lovelies on, but I declined.  I mean, I have priorities...there were pictures to be taken!  πŸ˜‚

 

I LOVE the scent of the Bite Beauty Agave+ Weekly Vegan Lip Scrub 0.7 oz/ 20 g .  It's a true vanilla.  It did take my lips from blah to having a little more natural color before sampling the gratis.  It wasn't too rough, and helped to moisturize my lips.

Next up, the Tatcha The Kissu Lip Mask Original . There is hardly any scent at all, which is fine by me.  This must be really effective, because it kept my lips from getting damaged from all of the playing I did.  Plus, it leaves a pretty shine

I left the mask on while I tried the SEPHORA COLLECTION Cream Lip Stain Liquid Lipstick in Candy Love.  I usually wear a balm or gloss beneath a liquid lipstick.  In order to make this work well with my skin tone, I lightly applied Candy Love and spread it with my finger.  For me, it would be too much applying it full strength, but this way it ends up being a pink that I really enjoy.

Now, for Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick Pillow Talk .  I have never been able to wear this well because it turns either brown or gray on me, so I thought I'd try it on top of Candy Love to have more of a pink base to help it along.  It worked!  Definitely recommend this trick if you have Pillow Talk and want that pinkish nude, but it doesn't work with your own lip color.

Pillow Talk by itself. 

It's actually pretty good this time.

#Yves St Laurent The Slim Glow Lipstick- I can actually wear this red!  I never would have looked twice at this, but I like it.  And although it has a scent, it's not as strong as Givenchy's lovely lipsticks, so it doesn't bother me.  Be careful applying this- it needs to be twisted up quite a bit otherwise the sharp corners of the tube can hurt your lips.

Finally, FENTY BEAUTY by Rihanna Stunna Lip Paint Longwear Fluid Lip Color in Underdawg. I have none of these liquid lipsticks, and on my own I would have been afraid to try this one.  But applying it on top of the Tatcha lip mask brought out the cooler wine/berry tones, and I love it!

All of these shades are a little more vibrant in real life than on here; this is just how my pictures turned out.  But the shades are pretty accurate.

Thank you again  #TeamBIC!  This is such a generous treat!
