Holiday 2017 Skincare

Bite Beauty Agave Kisses Set

October 27, 2017

Bite Beauty has quite a few amazing Holiday sets and beautiful gift options this season I think any makeup or lip junkie would love to receive, and today I am sharing yet another look at one of their four gift sets exclusively available on Sephora. Earlier this month I highlighted the Champagne Discovery Lip Set (reviewed + swatched here), which in my opinion is one of their best this year, and for today I’m giving you a look at their limited edition Agave Kisses Set ($20). This travel set includes three deluxe-sized best-sellers from their Agave collection made to exfoliate, treat, and hydrate lips. The set contains:

  • 0.18 oz / 5 g Agave Sugar Lip Scrub
  • 0.18 oz / 5 g Agave Lip Mask
  • 0.05 oz / 1.3 g Agave Lip Balm

The set comes packaged in a collectible charcoal gray tin like this:

The Agave Lip Mask has been a long time staple of mine and I always have at least two in my stash at any given moment. When it very first came out I received a sample of this and was immediately blown away by how nourishing it was. It’s ultra hydrating and plumps the lips. Consistency is a little bit on the thick side but with dabbing of the ring finger all over to disperse product solves that issue. The formula itself is really effective, almost instantly healing dry and chapped lips while it also naturally plumps the lips without any irritation. I use this mask every single night. When I start my post-shower routine, one of the first things I do is exfoliate my lips with a lip scrub and apply the Agave mask afterwards. How my lips feel after is absolutely indescribable, they are so soft, so smooth and lush. This mask is a really good overnight treatment when your lips are in crisis mode.

The Agave Sugar Lip Scrub has been on my wishlist for quite a while but I never got around to purchasing it since I’m still properly stocked on MAC Lip Scrubtious. This set gave me an excuse and opportunity to finally try it out. The Agave Sugar Lip Scrub is a triple-action, foaming lip scrub that’s infused with exotic oils, brown sugar, and pineapple enzymes. It cleanses and gently exfoliates, while the agave syrup moisturizes and conditions your lips. This is a fantastic lip scrub and I might even like it more than my current MAC Lip Scrubtious! To reap the ultra healing and moisturizing properties, as well as the actual exfoliation part, massage the Agave Sugar Lip Scrub over the lips and add water to create a milky foam to wash away any dry patches. Then, let the oils to soak into the skin overnight for soft, hydrated lips. I like that it’s not as stiff as many scrubs tend to sometimes be. This one is very goopy so it’s easy to get product out of the jar and distribute around the lips. I also feel like its hydrating my lips as I scrub. It washes off nice without leaving an oily or greasy film and makes my lips feel super smooth and moisturized. Like most Bite Beauty products, this stuff smells amazing – kind of like vanilla but not that overly sickly sweet type of vanilla.

Last but not least is the Agave Lip Balm. I love the Agave Lip Mask for bedtime but have always felt it was a bit too much for day. This balm is the lighter version of the mask and is perfect for on-the-go as you don’t need to use your fingers to apply it. Just like the mask, it is super nourishing but quite a bit lighter in texture so it has an easier time absorbing into the lips. It does feel a bit waxy and hard when you apply it and you have to hold the barrel to prevent it from pushing back down. Even though Vegas has not dipped below the 70’s for the high, the drier air has already wreaked havoc on my lips causing them to become painfully dry with an occasional split here and there. The Agave Lip Balm keeps lips intensely hydrated and moisturized, leaving them feeling very soft and smooth instead of chapped and riddled in dry patches or lip splits. It’s super long lasting and you don’t even really feel it once it’s on.

 

Bottom line, there’s lots to love with this set whether you’ve been wanting to try out Bite Beauty’s famous Agave lip collection or are looking for a solid lip care set to keep for yourself or gift away this Holiday season. All three items are part of their permanent lineup and can be purchased individually. Before this set, I was using two out of the three items and absolutely love them, now that the Agave Sugar Lip Scrub has been added my lip care routine feels complete. This is overall a great introductory set to the Agave series and to Bite Beauty’s core line in general. All-in-all, two huge thumbs up!

You can find the Bite Beauty Agave Kisses Set online and in stores at Sephora. Note that it is limited-edition and may disappear from the shelves at any given time.
