Mother’s Day is a mere 9 shopping days away. The Lipstick League wants in on your favourite gift ideas for the moms, sisters, aunties, besties and other badass women in our lives!
I'll be doing a separate post, but right now I'm all about this so-pretty Love, Bite Lip Set ($45 CAD and $42 USD at sephora.com) for the mom, sis, auntie or bestie who digs multi-tasking makeup. From natural-formula company Bite Beauty, the two Multisticks — Cashew and Gelato — can be used on lids, cheeks and lips, and the Prismatic Pearl Crème Lip Gloss in Rose Pearl spotlights lips with a multi-dimensional finish.
That price is crazy, by the way – the kit is worth $81 CAD/$70 USD. Bonus: Bite is a Canadian company, which makes it even more special in Canada's 150th year.
