When Scott's colleague Tacita mentioned she was heading to the US for the Easter break, she kindly offered to pick a few things up for me while there. Mind you, I sat on this for a few weeks with the hope something would eventually tickle my fancy.

Laurie of 312 Beauty absolutely stole my heart when she shared the news about Deconstructed Rose, so on the list it went.

  Decisions, decisions.

Decisions, decisions.

Bite Beauty's Deconstructed Rose Lip Gloss Library* contains 12 shades (.05 ounces/tube) -- these were specifically picked for their delicacy, likeness and also for the emotions one feels when given a rose or bouquet of roses.

Here's what Bite Beauty has to say about their limited edition collection:

"The glosses are infused with the powerful and potent distilled essential oil, Rose Otto. This highly concentrated ingredient offers a complex array of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants perfect for a deliciously glossy lip."

I've only had a chance to swatch Deconstructed Rose on the inside of my arm, but here are a few of my initial thoughts..

  • rose scented
  • slightly tacky 
  • the lighter shades are on the translucent side
  • the size of the doe foot applicator was not reduced

  For kicks I smeared the swatches from left to right (top) and from right to left (bottom) to get a better idea of what they'd look like when layered

Over the course of this week I'll try out all 12 shades in order to write up a proper review; I'll also post pictures of my smacker wearing every shade (not all at once, of course :P).

The Deconstructed Rose Lip Gloss Library ($49.00 USD) is exclusively sold at Sephora.
