Beauty RSVP: pamper yourself at Holt Renfrew & Sephora this month

It’s only been a few days, but January is already shaping up to be an amazing month for beauty. Coming up: Bite Beauty & Holt Renfrew are having beauty events that everyone can attend – no gate crashing required.

BITE Beauty Lipstick Lab @ Sephora Yorkdale

As if you needed another reason to visit Yorkdale these days (hello, KATE SPADE!), BITE beauty will be mixing custom colours at Sephora’s Yorkdale location on January 18 & 19.

Known for their highly-pigmented, on-trend colour palettes and synthetic-chemical-free formulas, BITE is a line that I’ve been meaning to try. If you’ve ever had trouble deciding what lip colour to buy, this is a can’t-miss event.

Friday, January 18 (3-8pm) & Saturady, January 19 (11am  – 8pm) at Sephora Yorkdale

    I bought the Bite lipsticks during the holidays and they’ve quickly become a staple for me. My fav brand for lippies is MAC and Bite is quite comparable, the colours are beautiful and long-lasting for sure. From one beauty lover to another I definitely recommend!
    Didn’t know the event was happening though, might have to make some time for it next weekend!

    • @summerxskin I’ve been dying to try them out. I’m headed to Sephora this week for a new NARS matte lipstick, so I’m definitely going to give them a go while I’m there.
      I just found out about the event this afternoon – definitely tempted to go. I’m confirmed for the Holt’s event – see you there? 🙂

        @stephaniefusco Won’t be coming to Holt’s one unfortunately! I have something planned that evening. 🙁
        I will probably be going to the BITE Event on the 19th! Hope to see you there.

  • Your site is quite interesting and very well written. I like the way it is organized and presented. Very concise and articulate.
