Bite Beauty | Holiday 2018 Collection: Review and Swatches
As crazy as it sounds, October pretty much marks the beginning of holiday beauty releases. So today I want to share with you the handful of festive gifts Bite Beauty is offering this year. With classic favorites like the mini lipsticks set, along with a couple of new and interesting stocking stuffers, the Holiday 2018 Collection is available at Sephora now.

Bite Beauty | Holiday 2018 Four Little Bites Amuse Bouche Lipstick Set: Review and Swatches

Bite Beauty | Four Little Bites Amuse Bouche Lipstick Set ($29 CAD for 4 x 1.55 g):
Bite has been consistently releasing adorable mini lipstick sets over the past few holidays and this year, the Four Little Amuse Bouche Lipstick Set comes with the shades "Tannin", a deep poppy red, "Nori", a dark reddish brown, "Date", a rosy brown nude, and "Sake", a cool-tone dusty mauve. "Nori" was a part of the 2016 Holiday The Perfect Bite Set (reviewed here) but the three other shades, as far as I know, have only been available as full-sized items.

As is expected with the Bite Amuse Bouche Lipsticks, all four shades here are creamy, rich, and super pigmented. Even a light nude like "Date" is opaque in one swipe. The formulation is infused with jojoba, shea, and argan so the lipsticks feel ultra hydrating and comfortable. If you are new to Bite or have yet to try the Amuse Bouche Lipsticks, then this is the perfect set to check out. Additionally, because the packaging is so festive and compact, it also makes for a great stocking stuffer.

Bite Beauty | Holiday 2018 Agave Treat Trio & Agave Lip Mask in "Candy Cane": Review and Swatches
Bite Beauty | Agave Lip Mask in "Candy Cane" & Agave Treat Trio Mini Agave Lip Mask
Bite Beauty | Agave Lip Mask in "Candy Cane" ($30 CAD for 15 g):
A special limited edition flavor available only for the holiday season, this Agave Lip Mask is formulated with peppermint oil. To me, the mask smells very minty with very little sweetness. It is tinted a very sheer red but applies mostly transparent. For those unfamiliar with the Bite Agave Lip Masks, it is a rich and intense liquid lip balm made with lanolin, castor oil, beeswax, olive oil, and shea butter.  The formulation is actually quite thick and difficult to squeeze out of the small opening of the tube but it lasts very well on the lips. As an overnight balm, it will leave the lips soft and conditioned in the morning. The limited edition "Candy Cane" flavor is also available in a mini size as a part of the Agave Treat Trio (see below).

Bite Beauty | Agave Treat Trio Mini Agave Lip Mask ($20 CAD for 3 x 5 g):
With three mini-sized Agave Lip Masks, the Agave Treat Trio has got you covered for soft, kissable lips. Included is the Agave Lip Mask in "Candy Cane", "Maple", and "Natural". If you've been wanting to try the Agave Lip Masks or are curious about the different flavors, this cute trio is a great set to check out. My hands down favorite out of the three is "Maple", which literally smells like sweet maple syrup. It also has a slight hint of bronze shimmer, which is quite lovely and flattering. See the photo below for swatches of all the Agave Lip Mask shades mentioned. I apologize for swatching "Candy Cane" twice as I initially mistook the red shade in this set as "Smashed", another sheer red Agave Lip Mask shade.
Bite Beauty | Holiday 2018 Sweet Treats Agave Lip Care Set: Review and Swatches
Bite Beauty | Sweet Treats Party Prep & Holiday Hangover Agave Lip Care Set
Bite Beauty | Sweet Treats Agave Lip Care Set in "Party Prep" & "Holiday Hangover" ($15 CAD each):
Last but not least are two small stocking stuffers each containing a mini Agave Lip Mask (5 g), mini Agave Lip Balm (1.3 g), and a trial-sized Agave Sugar Lip Scrub (0.5g). The two sets are almost identical but the Party Prep Set includes the Agave Lip Mask in "Champagne", a soft pink gold shimmer, while the Holiday Hangover Set includes "Lavender", a sweet lavender scented Agave Lip Mask with a very sheer purple tint.
