If you’re in the market to discover some cool new brands or just want to know how that sweater actually looks and feels in real life, you’ve come to the right place. Here are some product reviews that give you insight into quality, functionality and beauty from a shopaholic’s perspective.

bite me | Bite Beauty amuse bouche and lip pencil review

Looking for a luscious shade of lipstick for fall? There’s nothing that makes a bold statement of the change of seasons like a deep, burgundy lip and a confident stare.
