Winter isn’t exactly the easiest season to get a handle on our beauty routines. Our skin care roster often needs to be put on steroids to try and keep up with all the bomb cyclone and polar vortex side effects. From hair being permanently static-y and dry, to skin flaking and lips chafing, there are a whole lot more creams and masks involved when the temperatures dip. In terms of chapped lips, Bite Beauty’s Agave Lip Masks are a fan favorite thanks to their deeply moisturizing formulas. But there’s a new twist hitting beauty shelves that have breakfast enthusiasts super excited. There’s now a Bite Beauty Maple Lip Mask. Get them pancakes ready.
For those that aren’t familiar with the product, the Agave Lip Masks are intensive recovery masks for your lips, bringing back some much needed moisture to weather-beaten pouts. Infused with agave nectar, which moisturizes, and jojoba oil, which heals, it also provides antioxidant benefits that are equivalent to 15 glasses of red wine, according to the company.
They differ from the Agave Lip Balms in the fact that they deliver more shine and a tint of color that’s perfect for those no-makeup makeup looks. There are four colors available for you to choose from: Natural (which is clear), Smashed (a sheer candy apple red), Champagne (a rose gold pearl), and finally Maple (a sheer bronze.)
I say “finally” because Maple was exclusively a Canadian color, and has just recently been introduced to the US market. You know how Canadians love their maple syrup, and they have decided to share the wealth and have sent down the yummy balm to their American neighbors. The mask is infused with real Canadian maple syrup, making this an organic and all-natural product for your beauty bag.
Agave Lip Mask – Maple, $26, Sephora
The Maple Lip Mask comes in a barely-there, pretty bronze sheen, and it literally smells like maple syrup when you sweep it on. If you want to be craving pancakes and waffles all day, this is the perfect beauty tool to throw into your arsenal. If you want to give the subtle bronze sheen a bit of a color boost, the people over at Bite Beauty recommend lining your lips first with a light brown lip pencil, and then topping it off with the mask. Pretty, understated, and nourishing. To get a more detailed peek at all the different lip masks and colors, check them out below.
