Bite Beauty is a brand I've always had my eye on, yet haven't talked about. I've been contemplating buying an Amuse Bouche Lipstck for the longest time, but hadn't yet gone for it. Fortunately, I was chosen to review these 3 Matte Creme Lip Crayons through an Influenster campaign. The campaign doesn't require you write about it, but I like these lippies so much I want to share them!
The Bite Matte Creme Lip Crayons come in a variety of shades (roughly 19 permanent shades) and retail for $28 CAD. The application tip is skinny and there is about 0.05 oz of product in each, (aka not enough!) but the product quality itself makes up for it..
Matte Creme Lip Crayons in (L to R): Cava, Glace, Red Velvet
The texture itself is a little thick, it won't feel like you're not wearing lipstick, but it won't feel super heavy either. It isn't sticky so your hair won't cling to it. It goes on smooth and looks good even on the driest of lips.
It does not dry out my lips and feels quite moisturizing actually. So far it's my favourite alternative to a liquid lipstick. It gives me the same awesome pigmentation but is moisturizing, whereas liquid lipsticks are quite drying on me. In exchange for the moisturizing qualities, you give up the long-lasting staying power and little-zero transfer of a liquid lipstick. I mean, they are long wearing for what they are, but these will transfer a bit and will not last the entire day. I usually carry one around with me anyways and apply after eating a meal.
The major downside of these matte crayons is that they seem to run out quickly. I've been using Cava quite often and I notice having to twist it up to reveal new product more often than I'd like.
Their special ingredients includes orange peel wax, as well as antioxidant; resveratrol. Bite Beauty products do not contain parabens, sulfates, or phthalates.
Matte Creme Lip Crayon Swatches in (Bottom to Top): Cava, Glace, Red Velvet
My lips are going through winter so they are super dry in the swatches below, sorry beforehand!
Ps!! After playing around I noticed that the bottom of the tube actually contains a plastic sharpener! Personally I do no need to use it because the tip itself is already skinny enough, but it was a cool noteworthy discovery..
I love the matte formulation of these and I always find myself wearing Cava. It is the most gorgeous mauve shade and compares to one of my favourite liquid lipsticks; the Stila Baci. Not sure if I would purchase one in the future, I usually stick to nude/mauve shades so I'll have to see if I want to dish out $28 for a replacement of Cava when I run out.
You can find the Matte Lip Crayons at Sephora locations, or online at Sephora.com.
