It’s been awhile since I reviewed some new products from one of my favourite high end makeup brands Bite Beauty. So today I’m excited to bring you a review of 3 summery shades from their most recent launch — the Amuse Bouche Lipstick range. If you’re not familiar with Bite, they’re a Canadian lip-exclusive brand who’s products are made with natural, food grade ingredients that are actually good for your lips. Bite Beauty used to make my all time favourite lipstick formula, the Luminous Crème Lipsticks. I also introduced so many of you to Bite products last year — I love it when you leave comments, send me messages or tag me in photos wearing my product recommendations!
Imagine my dismay when I heard Bite was discontinuing the Luminous Crème Lipsticks earlier this year (do anyone else’s favourite products always seem to get discontinued?!). When I discovered they were replacing the Luminous Crème Lipsticks with a new lipstick line called Amuse Bouche I was intrigued — and a bit skeptical, to be honest! I’m happy to report that I love Bite’s Amuse Bouche Lipsticks just as much (if not a little better!) than their predecessor, my beloved Luminous Crème Lipsticks. Come hang out for a review, photos and swatches of the Bite Beauty’s Amuse Bouche Lipsticks in Meringue, Gingersnap and Pickled Ginger!
Don’t you just love limited edition holiday beauty releases? It’s that magical time of year when brands really seem to step up their game and create so many exclusive products, and value-packed offerings. If you’ve been with me for awhile, you’ll know that I really love Bite Beauty — a Canadian lip-exclusive brand who’s products are made with natural, food grade ingredients that are actually good for your lips. I’ve mentioned previously that Bite’s Luminous Crème Lipsticks are my all time favourite lipsticks — every year I love to pick up these mini duos. They last me until the next year! Today I’m reviewing all 12 shades from the Mix n’ Mingle range for Holiday 2015. If you’re in the market for some great new lipsticks, or looking for gift ideas, you’ve come to the right place!

I swear that every year, limited edition holiday beauty sets start hitting the market earlier and earlier! Today I’m reviewing the Bite Beauty Best Bite Rewind Set, which is limited edition for Holiday 2015. Bite Beauty is one of my favourite brands, they get a lot of love here at JustineCelina — all products are made with natural, food grade ingredients, and they’re Canadian. Each holiday season (or… in October!) I look forward to picking up one of their limited edition holiday sets to try their new shades — and this set definitely does not disappoint! It contains four deluxe-size Mini Matte Crème Lip Crayons in the shades Café, Torte, Coulis and Aubergine (which are all exclusive to this set, except Aubergine) housed in a beautiful holiday tin. Currently, it’s IN STOCK online at sephora.com, and there are quite a few available in-store. Continue Reading
Well hello, beautiful souls! It’s been a minute, hasn’t it?! Not to worry — I’m back today with another Monthly Beauty Favourites post! The first part of September has been very busy with client work, so this post is coming to you a little late. That said, it’s packed full of some great new beauty finds and rediscovered products across eye, cheek, lip, complexion and nail categories, so I hope it was worth the wait. I’m definitely starting to transition into more autumnal makeup but have been enjoying lighter, fresher lip colours — so I guess we have a little bit of a summer-meets-fall vibe happening again today (there’s definitely a theme here at JustineCelina this month!).
Settle in on this crisp, late summer evening and let’s chat about everything I’ve loved putting on my face (and nails) lately! My August 2017 Beauty Favourites including the ultimate warm eyeshadow lovers dream palette, a natural, neutral lip liner that goes with everything, a luxurious, extremely unique lip cream, a fantastic lipstick for everyday wear as we transition into fall, the most heavenly drugstore bronzer I’ve ever worn, the perfect rosy blush in one of my all time favourite formulas and a decadent berry polish with nail helping, healthy ingredients (it’s infused with kale!). If you’re looking to incorporate a touch of autumn into your beauty routine, I have so many fantastic recommendations for you today!
Hey beautiful people — welcome back for another Monthly Beauty Favourites! June was a fun month here at JustineCelina, packed with events, roadtrips, and absolutely gorgeous weather. Summer has definitely arrived in Calgary and I’ve been taking every opportunity I can to get outside and enjoy it! In June I experimented with a lot of seasonal trends in the beauty department and really pushed the boundaries of what type of what type of products I incorporated into my routine. It creative month for me beauty wise — and it was a blast!
If you’re so over spring pastels and nudes, this post is for you! My June 2017 Beauty Favourites are bursting with vibrant hues and unconventional finishes and formulas. I have mini reviews on a little bit of everything today — a beautiful, compact, warm toned eyeshadow palette (which is actually a fantastic alternative to the in-and-out of stock Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette), my favourite mascara of the year (and it just happens to be under $7!), more Lancôme lip products, a delicious vegan shower cream, a neon red blush, an ultra fine makeup setting mist, a spray that makes your locks super shiny, a metallic rose gold polish with good-for-your-nail ingredients. If you’re looking for a relaxing mid week read, settle in with me today and let’s chat about the best in summer beauty!
Man it feels good to publish this May 2017 Beauty Favourites post! Since I spent a large part of March barefaced due to my finger injury and published my first ever completely makeup free Monthly Beauty Favourites post, this past month I really enjoyed experimenting with makeup again and discovered so many incredible new products. May was packed full of events (both blog related and personal) and I took every available opportunity to get my glam on — so you’ll find a healthy dose of glow and sparkle in my May beauty favourites! There’s range of products at affordable and luxury price points in today’s post — including a stunning rose gold highlighter (for less than $5!), my favourite lipsticks of the entire year, a bargain, go-with-anything nude lipliner, the perfect blush palette for a youthful spring flush, some extremely luxurious eyeshadows, a pastel lilac nail polish with nourishing ingredients and a metallic, glittery liquid eyeshadow!
There’s a strong peach, pink and rose gold theme in my favourites today — what can I say, I’ve been immersing myself in seasonal colour trends in full force! It’s been awhile since we chatted all things beauty, but you remember the drill, right? Pour yourself a glass of wine, find a cozy spot to relax and kick back with me this weekend to learn more about my current favourite beauty products! Continue Reading
It’s rare that I publish dedicated review posts, but every once in awhile I fall so hard for a product that I know I just have to share it with all of you! Such is the case with the Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Liquid Lip Crèmes — a newer range of comfortable (yes, really), lightweight, ultra pigmented, extremely luxurious liquid lipsticks. Sound too good to be true? I promise you, it isn’t. You may remember me introducing them to you initially in my Spring 2017 Beauty Trend Guide — and since then, I’ve become completely smitten!
This weekend I’ve partnered with Sephora Canada to bring you a comprehensive review of the entire Le Marc Liquid Lip Crème range. If we’ve hung out in person over the past couple of months and you’ve asked me about my lipstick, chances are I’ve been wearing one of these (I’ve been purposely keeping them out of my Monthly Beauty Favourites posts so that I could share them all with you in this dedicated review!). Each shade from the range is absolutely stunning, consistently formulated and just easy to wear. We all know how obsessed I am with blush, peach and neutral tones this spring and these liquid lips are a neutral lovers dream! Each of these 6 shades are perfectly on trend for the season, yet wearable year round. If you’ve always wanted to try a liquid lipstick but thought they’d be too drying or simply not for you, I might just change your mind with these innovative lip crèmes from Marc Jacobs Beauty. They’re my top recommendation for anyone looking to invest in a luxury liquid lipstick this season! Continue Reading
