Beauty Buzz: Bite Beauty Gets Buttery, Lilah B. Crafts Conscious Cosmetics, and CEW and QVC Provide Beauty with Benefits


Forget the waxy lipsticks of the past; Bite Beauty has a fresh formula that’s a cut above the rest. Don’t let the flat tops fool you, the new Butter Cream Lipsticks are created using a technique called hand-cutting that gives you the texture and color payoff you’ll adore. According to Bite Beauty founder Susanne Langmuir, “In a typical lipstick, the protective waxes migrate to the outer layer. Using this new hand-cut technique, the inner creamy core is exposed allowing you to reach that luxurious texture, rather than the protective waxes.” [InStyle]

For Lilah B.’s founder Cheryl Yannotti Foland, a move to the West Coast not only cleaned up her lifestyle but her beauty routine as well. The result was a new luxury beauty brand that focus on packaging, formulation, and functionality with an emphasis on healthy beauty. The brand’s lip and cheek duo has become a favorite of beauty editors thanks to the fresh formulations and stone-inspired shapes. “Women can’t put them down,” said Foland. “I wanted to achieve this very substantial, beautiful component that woman would covet. You pick them up, touch them, hold them and maybe collect them.” [WWD]

As the CEW announces the finalists of its annual Insiders’ Choice Beauty Awards, the organization is helping others with QVC. Both brands will come together on April 15 at 10:00 p.m. for its third annual Beauty with Benefits special to give beauty buffs major deals on prestige products from the likes of Laura Mercier, Clinique, Laura Geller, and many more. 80 percent of the purchase price will be donated to Cancer and Careers, a charity that empowers people living and working with the disease.

Benefit has been battling big pores for years, but now it has a new weapon in its arsenal: License to Blot. The stick uses invisible blotting spheres to mattify shine and minimizes the look of pores for a flawless face – perfect for makeup mavens with oily skin. With summer on its way, we’ll be sticking close to this makeup must! [Glam Inbox]

Coachella’s around the corner, and Flash Tattoos wants to add some color to accent your festival ensembles. The brand has linked up with the Rainforest Partnership, which finds solutions for deforestation, to create a set inspired by the rainforest. Th Ilia set will not only introduce color to the collection of molten metallics, but will also provide 5% of the proceeds to benefit the organization! [Glam Inbox]
