bag: c. wonder small floral pouch, $28
balm: bite beauty spf 15 sheer balm, $19
how cute is the nylon pouch from c. wonder? i love the shiny gold hardware and the matching floral lining. they come in five sizes and a variety of colors and prints making them uber pretty while being perfectly practical. (if you’re in the new york area, you likely already know the phenomenon that is christopher burch’s delightful shopping experience. if you’re not in the ny area, you can partake in all of the pleasures this spirited collection offers online.)
as for the balm, i’m having a moment with bite beauty as you know from this post. this balm has prime real estate on my bedside table and i have not gone a night without wearing it to bed sine it arrived on my doorstep. it has just the right balance between tug and glide when you apply it (lip balm connoisseurs will totally know what i mean by this – you don’t want a balm to be too slippy or too grippy) and feels lovely on the lips. the cream shade is a tender, nude pink, depositing nearly no color but refreshing my mouth in the best possible way.
ps – we’re down to the wire! i would love your continued votes and support as we round out the final days of the allure beauty blogger of the year competition :)
