BITE #TheLipPencil

I get so excited to receive packages from Influenster complimentary for review !!

This VoxBox was from Bite Beauty and I am in love!

I received The Lip Pencil in 020 along with the Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Honeycomb ! I’ll admit that at first I wasn’t convinced the color would work with my skin tone, but was surprised to find that I actually think it’s really pretty! Such a unique, neutral color! Love the super smooth formula, too! Very comfortable on the lips!

I am so happy to have received my Influenster Vox Box ! This time I received a Kat Von D Beauty Vox Box and was blown away!

All the items inside are full sized items and were sent complimentary to me for review.

I received all the items below:

2 Kat Von D Lock-It Concealer Crèmes : Light #15 and Medium #19

2 Makeup Brushes : Kat Von D Lock-It Setting Powder Brush and Kat Von D Lock-It Edge Concealer Brush

1 Setting Powder: Kat Von D Lock-It Setting Powder


The Kat Von D Lock-It Concealer Crèmes have a great consistency that is like no other. They go on smooth and flawless. Also I have to mention the applicator which is the perfect angle to create a great highlight. Will continue to use this for a long time. 



The Kat Von D Lock-It Setting Powder Brush and Kat Von D Lock-It Edge Concealer Brush are beyond! They are super soft and really help to create the flawless look you want every time. 


The Kat Von D Lock-It Setting Powder is absolutely amazing! It’s so silky and finely milled. I’ve tried LAURA Mercier and do not love it at all because I’ve always felt that it creased under my eyes and cause lines that I do not have but THIS- AMAZING! It leaves my skin looking luminous and soft like a soft blur. Highly recommend.



Thanks to Influenster for sending me all of this for testing and review! Love it all!

Last night I made an awesome stop at one of the great new  beauty stores to open up in the NYC- Kenig+Alcone Beauty Curators ! I was fascinated at the amount of awesome product that this wonderful beauty store carries! Everything from the best name brands in blow dryers to those hard to find make up wipes, Kenig+Alcone Beauty Curators promises to deliver!

They also have a beauty salon in the back if you need a quick touch up on the run or if you have time for an all out va-va styling. I can’t fail to point out that they also have makeup on the second floor!!!!  Exclamation points are not enough to express my excitement here lol…

Nonetheless, if you call yourself a Makeup Artist, Beauty Guru, Beauty Queen or Connoisseur you better find your way to this store because they will have everything you are looking for. 😉

This is a Vintage 1930s PERM-MACHINE which is displayed up front for everyone to see. SUPER COOL!
