All Natural Lip Kit - Beautiful Because

The internet exploded a couple of months ago when Kylie Jenner released her 'Kylie Jenner Lip Kit'. Everyone loved the idea of an all in one kit containing a lip gloss/ lipstick and liner and we must admit the shades were gorgeous! This got us thinking, as a lover for all things natural, what is the alternative for those of us who love the idea but rather a natural product?
Well, we have done some hunting and put together our very own lip kit with natural alternatives, complete with products from the Bite Beauty range available online from Beautiful Because.
This lip kit feature includes the following products in the named shades;
- Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask Champagne
- Bite Pigment Pencil Rhubarb
- Bite Creme Lipstick Pecan
- Bite Gloss Cocoa
Up first the Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask in Champagne...
A lip mask is something we have heard of many times but we never really tested one out. The Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask in Champagne, is designed to keep the lips nourished. It is a leave on product meaning that its not a temporary fix but rather long lasting nourishment to help avoid your lips drying out.
What I love most about this lip mask is that is really a 2 in 1. A lip mask and a gorgeous gloss shade. This makes it perfect for everyday wear or an effortless makeup look.
The texture of this product is more like a lip balm than a gloss. The colour is fairly sheer when applied, although when firstly squeezed out of the tube it appears a lot stronger.
This lip mask is great for a little TLC.
Up next the Bite Pigment Pencil Rhubarb....
An essential - a lip liner!
A lip liner is used to define the border of your lips and plays a big role in mastering the perfect pout! The liner also acts as a guide to help you apply your lip colour - sounds silly, we know but when applying a bold or deep colour i.e. red, even a dab around your lip and you are left with a pinkish stain on you skin.
However, rather than purchasing a standard lip liner bit beauty have created a 'high impact' pencil that is almost just like a crayon that acts as a lipstick! Another 2 in 1! Bite beauty just keeps on giving. These pencils are rich in pigment and the colour is long lasting.
Now for those of you who have been on the hunt for a natural MATTE lip shade then look no further. This lip pencil is in fact matte - so now we can upgrade this product from a 2 in 1 to a 3 in 1!
The pencil is not like your standard pencil it is super pigmented which we love!
Now onto product 3 of our lip kit essentials Bite Creme Lipstick, shade Pecan.
It goes without saying that a lipstick is an essential for any makeup bag and definitely for a lip kit. We absolutely loved the texture of this lipstick - it is fairly smooth and creamy. This is great because, like most lipsticks, it doesn't leave a dry feeling to your lips.
Now, there is not much to say about this lipstick mostly because it left us gob smacked! It really is the a great texture and shade. It is not everyday that you find a lipstick that ticks all the boxes.
Last but not least, the Bite Beauty Gloss in the shade Cocoa
If your just not that into lipsticks you could also substitute this with the Bite Beauty Gloss in the shade Cocoa. The glosses are not too sheer but not as pigmented as the lipsticks. What surprised us most is that we expected this gloss to be quite sheer like your usual lip gloss, but we loved that it had a stronger pigment.
Although this gloss is fairly thick when applied it is also very smooth.
Oh, and one thing I have to point out - this gloss smells like a lolly shop and we love it!
