Bite Beauty is a new Sephora-exclusive product line that immediately turned my head, in part because of the elegant simplicity of the textured grey packaging with glossy red lettering, but also because of the alluring range of shades and textures – all just for lips. Also, the fact that Bite Beauty lip products contain food-grade ingredients and the resveratrol equivalent of five glasses of red wine is kinda cool too.
To try out the Bite Beauty line, I picked up a Bite Beauty High Pigment Matte Pencil in Honey Berry, because it looked gorgeously mauve-nude swiped on my hand and because it reminded me of my beloved Nars Velvet Matte Pencil formula. How did it stack up?

Started out a doubter, but now I’m a lover…
When I received a few products from the new Benefit Cosmetics b.Right! skincare line in my mailbox, I didn’t actually expect to be that impressed, since makeup, in my opinion, has always been Benefit’s strongest suit.
Well, I was wrong to doubt Benefit’s ability to bring it with b.Right! I am absolutely loving the two Benefit b.Right! cleansers that I’ve tried, the Refined Finish Facial Polish and the Foamingly Clean Facial Wash. They make me feel more girly and more… clean.
The thing I love the most about the new Benefit b.Right! Radiant Skincare line is the fragrance: a fresh, pretty, and well-groomed bright floral that has just enough sparkle to make it interesting and modern. I want to say the scent is “perky,” › Continue reading

Meilily Product Photos & Details: Alima Pure Mineral Makeup Holiday 2010 Fairy Tale Collection Sets!
Even if you don’t believe in fairy tales anymore, you will want to check out mineral cosmetics brand Alima Pure and their Limited Edition Holiday Fairy Tale Collection sets. I tried the Limited Edition “Once Upon a Time” (shown above) and “Happily Ever After” mineral makeup sets from the Fairy Tale Collection, and am now enchanted with Alima Pure’s high-quality additive-free mineral cosmetics.
Not only does Alima Pure know how to make high quality mineral makeup, but they also really know how to package it. You’ll easily fall in love with Alima Pure’s beautiful pigments and also their whimsical motifs. (Apparently Alicia Silverstone is a fan too)! Best of all, Alima Pure products are fragrance-free and formulated without irritants like bismuth oxychloride or preservatives. (Btw, they’ve even received a Certified Natural Cosmetics seal under strict European standards!)

OK, what could be better than free jeans?! How about free Levi’s Curve ID Jeans, a new product from Levi’s specifically designed to fit more than just one type (er shape) of woman.
I recently attended a Levi’s Curve ID launch event in San Francisco at the Union Square Levi’s shop. I got to meet You Nguyen, SVP of Levi’s Women’s Merchandising and Design, who gave a demo that illustrated precisely why women traditionally have such a hard time finding jeans that fit based on size (but not shape). I even got to to try free Curve ID jeans!
*Friday, Sept. 17, 2010 Get a free pair of Levi’s Curve ID jeans at the San Francisco Levi’s store at 300 Post St. Just bring in an old pair of jeans to get free Curve ID jeans! First come first serve!
Photos and Details: How the New Curve ID Jeans Fit Different Women…
Levi’s developed Curve ID jeans after researching body shape variations in women and surveying real women. The new jeans are sized not just by waist size but by the ratio or difference between a woman’s natural waist, upper hip, and butt measurements- her real shape!
The Three Levi’s Curve ID (Lower) Body Shape Types:
- Slight Curve (straighter from waist to butt)
- Demi Curve (average proportion between waist and butt)
- Bold Curve (more difference or curve between waist and butt)

Models wearing, from left to right: Slight Curve, Demi Curve, Bold Curve.
Front view: Size 27 models, each with a different hip shape…
Side view: Size 27 models, each with a different derriere shape…… wow!

I recently attended a fun Benefit Cosmetics preview party in San Francisco, and I got to try out and take home new Fall makeup from Benefit. I even got my brows done during the event and loved it! Benefit sure throws a mean party – cupcakes, cocktails, and all!
Now, I’m actually kinda excited about these new Benefit Fall products, because they’re quite fun, and would probably work with a variety of skintones!
Here are the Fall launch details and photos… › Continue reading

Meilily Product Photos: L’Occitane Limited Edition Peony Makeup Collection!
Exciting news! L’Occitane’s limited edition makeup collection is here! In select L’Occitane stores only, this rare garden-inspired Peony Makeup Collection is a must-see.
While wandering through a L’Occitane shop, I was drawn to a display of what appeared to be colorful flower seed packets. Imagine my surprise when I realized that L’Occitane, best known as a bath and skincare brand, has a new makeup collection out, and a pretty one at that. Each limited edition makeup shade is named after a particular peony.
Meilily’s top picks from the L’Occitane Peony Makeup Collection:
- Liquid Shine Lip Colour in 01 Marie Riviere (a flattering medium-pigmented gloss inspired by a “delicate salmon-pink peony,” according to L’Occitane)
- Facecolour Powder in 02 Valse de Vienne (a pretty “glossy pale pink” blush/eyeshadow)
- Lipstick in 03 Mme Louis Henry (a very sheer warm-pink shimmer lipstick inspired by “a pink peony with old-gold patina reflections”)
