Bite Beauty Maple Collection is a Canada-exclusive release that consists of five Matte Creme Lipsticks and a new shade of Agave Lip Mask (in Maple). As a heads up, Mulled Maple is the same as Black Cherry (confirmed by Bite Beauty as well as from swatching both myself) from the Frozen Berries collection (U.S. release). Full reviews to come!

Big thanks to Julie over at Swatch & Review for helping me buy this collection! :)

Click to Enlarge

There are fifteen new shades of Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) available currently (there is supposed to be one more, but I haven’t seen it for sale online yet). It’ll take me awhile to test through these as they tend to wear six hours or longer, but here are swatches for your enjoyment!  Bonus, I also bought Lolita and have included that in the swatch link below.

Free for Haul Friday

Welcome to Free For Haul Friday!

  • Haul: A lot of Nordstrom Anniversary beauty exclusives!
  • Weekend plans: Farmers’ market, have a nice dinner out
  • What’s your favorite mode of transportation?: I like the speed of planes, but I like being able to take whatever I need and don’t like sitting in airports, so car is probably my favorite!

Share your pet photos to the Temptalia Pets flickr group! :)
