      Hey Jen you should try lanolips golden salve. I know they have lanolin and other people were saying it’s comparable to bite’s old formula. I haven’t tried to but I think you should give it a shot.

      @Tina Fox  Tina Fox  - My heart goes out to her because it is frustrating. A friend of mine's daughter couldn't find a foundation match a couple of years ago and it was so depressing. Her Mom is white and Dad is black so she has a gorgeous light complexion. This young lady is stunning!!! She went to Sephora and Ulta and had no luck with a foundation match. Her Mom and I took her to the mall and she was color matched at every makeup counter in that mall. Every single foundation has a slight reddish (almost a light terra cotta) color undertone when it's on her face. It was very obvious too. It was so aggravating to see her disappointment. Luckily she did find something not too long after that. But, it's really very unfair that she doesn't have many choices. If I didn't meet her I wouldn't know how challenging a foundation match could be. That day was absolutely horrible. Her Mom and I felt so helpless. She cried, her Mom cried, I cried... then we went and ate a brownie Sunday to forget that whole experience!

      Green undertones means that they need to get an olive undertone for a foundation. Aww, that broke my heart that she’s not able to find a foundation for her undertone 💜💋💋

    Had I known Bite was getting rid of their lanolin based lip mask, I would have bought it all. Best lip product on the market in terms of protection and lip health. So sad.

      There are some people, like me, we have thick skin and with aging it's hard to slaugh off the superficial layer of dead skin. I use that type of mask once a month, especially in the winter, or I my skin gets extremely congested. Maybe I'd fault the company on the marketing or packaging trying to target a young crowd. Children do not need lactic acid treatments, even in my twenties I wouldn't have used such a thing! I have tried other yes to Masks, can't speak for this one, but I never had an issue. I'd re-do the marketing to be more informative for the right crowd.

        I know Marlena is your friend, but I personally am very disappointed in the new branding of her line. I think the colors were very dull and looked like old colors instead of something new and fresh. Also I was appalled at the prices for the large pre made palettes. It’s one thing to charge around 4 or 5 bucks for a single, but you shouldn’t charge that for a large palette. In general I was just hoping for something really cool and new and innovative, I feel like that opportunity was missed.
        I still very much respect Marlena, I just wish she would have done something different with the rebrand.

              I like Lansinoh (which is just straight lanolin) much better than the old Bite Agave lip treatment. WAY cheaper, too.

                  I refuse to wear any products made with lanolin. My lips refuse to absorb it, it just sits on top of the skin. I opt for more nourishing ingredients.

                    I hope Tati’s next launch is a setting powder that doesn’t emphasize dry skin and fine lines.

                      Hi Jen! I’d love if you tried the forever puff too because that’s what Tati always used and it’d be interesting to see how it compared to what she has now created.

Call me a friend anytime Jen!

                            Beauty blender already have a product a lot like her blendiful. It's shaped just like it and soft and fuzzy on one side and like a beauty blender type material on the other. It's called Beauty blender power pocket puff. Dual sided powder puff

                                    Bite Beauty lipsticks currently contain beeswax so that, as well as the lanolin, would need to be removed. Their lipsticks were on sale here in Australia with 50% off so we must have the new wave coming through soon.

                                              Fab show today! I agree with you, since when did consumers and the public become so entitled that they can tell companies who to send their PR to, who to be friends with on a personal level, who to allow to carry their goods, etc. We have become so accustomed to "the customer is always right" that many have turned into monsters with this crap.
                                              My favorite was this past holiday season and over hearing (ha he was holler to get more eyes on him) at a young lady who was just told to close her register and take her break by management. Mind you, this man was not yet IN line to check out he was walking along the check out lane and when he saw her light go off he walked in and demanded she turn her light back on and check his order out because and I quote, "I am a stockholder, I will call corporate!!" etc. Dude was an azz. And had this young lady in tears before the manager could get back over there to handle the situation. The worst thing is that that bloody manager made her check him out to shut him up and get him out of the store instead of having him go the register right next to her that was just finishing their only person in line, me. This type of behavior is not okay, ever, no matter the situation.
                                              I would hope the young lady received an apology from the manager and HR and the manager was spoken to about how they handled the "stockholder customer".

                                              Long story short, be nice people, you are not in charge of their companies, you do not know the back stories no matter how much a person may have shared before they became business owners. Judgemental behavior looks good on no one.

                                                I think it would be a loose setting powder tati would come out rather than a foundation.

                                                  I am not an allergic type, but anything aloe burns my face, no matter the concentration, my skin becomes red as hell. From what i've found if you're not super carefull while extracting the gel and get bits of the outher "skin" of the plant into your extract - that tends to be cause of burning senstation for many people. I get allergic reaction even to super bio , organic certified products though...

                                                    I've recently made skincare a priority and came across a skincare channel that has a video on why he doesn't use products with fragrance or essential oils (Hyram). Prompted me to do my own research on it and it motivated me to get an actual skincare routine all fragrance and EO free. My face feels amazing and is noticeably less red:)

                                                        Omg yes on the lanolin. The sheep HAVE to be sheered or it Mats up to the point where it impedes their ability to move. Are you aware of other products that still have lanolin?

                                                                            I used to be an absolute nightmare for cleaning my make up brushes. I never did it. But that was also at a time where I didn't have any interest in make up (I just wore it because I needed too not because I wanted too). Now though I make sure I clean them every two weeks. I use baby shampoo and I only wash the ones I've used in the fortnight. I have quite alot of brushes but I store the unused ones away from the used. I hadn't noticed any problems using baby shampoo until recently when a couple of Tarte foundation brushes have started to shed. I thought this might be due to their age though. I've notice my skin looks alot healthy in the last couple of years, and cleaning my make up brushes religiously I think is a contributing factor. I clean my beauty sponge after every use though.

                                                                              If I was Tati I would come out with foundation. If she perfects two formulations (a matt and a dewy one) then per formulation she really only needs three undertones (yellow, pink and neutral), a lightener and a darkener. If she got it right the lightener and the darkener could also be used for the concealers. In a kit you could mix your perfect tone and that way production is easier and less wasteful. Thoughts?

                                                                                I ordered a Blendiful tonight. People are comparing to 5 for $5 puffs on Amazon, but clearly a different product than those and something new. She's not an idiot. Worth a try. Fact people complained about friends vs friend, and didn't know not to ask Tati if have to wonder what is wrong with people. They complain about anything, than do things 100 times worse themselves lol. Overstepping is commonplace now because people need to speak up, which I love how you do. Being silence to that and bullying is having too much of an effect and that needs to change. We don't want this for our children to be in daily.
