Only 34 days until spring. 34 days more of this…
If you were lucky enough to get your hands on the Bite Beauty holiday 2016 gift sets or Gold Crème Lip Gloss, you’ll understand why these sold out at Sephora online so fast. But no worries, a lot of stores still have stock AND almost everything here is part of the permanent collection!
Let’s start with The Perfect Bite Amuse Bouche Lipstick set. This contains four very mini lipsticks (think… those 250 pt perks from last year). $25 USD gets you four creamy, pigmented lipsticks that are all permanent shades.
1x swatches of each. Damn I love this formula.
But as you can see this are teeny weeny lipsticks. Be careful not to press too hard or the tube will break a bit.
Fig is described as a nude rose.
This is the perfect hint of creamy nude pink. Not too light, not too dark.
Pepper is described as a dusty rose. The shade actually leans a bit more taupe as shown below.
Look how pretty this shade is!
Honeycomb is described as a beige nude.
I don’t love this nude on me, as a matter of fact I don’t love most nudes. This is a bit too close to my skintone. (OMG you can tell I don’t love this shade because of my face)
Nori is described as a deep brown red.
I wore this to my company holiday party and got so many compliments. (Also how much do you love the colour of my crushed velvet Zara dress???)
Every year, Bite releases a tin of matte lip crayons… and every year I buy it.
The Bite Redux set contains three permanent shades and one LE. If you haven’t used these before, they are twist-up creamy crayons that are described as matte but are more semi-matte.
1x swatches. ALL GORGEOUS.
Fraise is described as a jewel red. Again, the ring light made this shade seem brighter than it is.
This is, no surprise, a strawberry red that is bright and bold and beautiful.
Orchid is a bright purple pink that is only available in this set.
Of course my fave of the set is a limited shade. OF. COURSE.
Red Velvet is described as a deep rich, red.
This is a cross between an oxblood and a classic red. It’s a bit different than most reds I have and it is stunning.
Truffle is described as a deep brown.
This looks better from far away but was a little uneven close up (which could be from my current chapped lip situation).
Can we just take a minute to swoon over the Gold Crème Lip Gloss? I first swatched this on my trip to NYC and should have picked it up then. It sold out quickly and I had to track it down. It’s limited edition, friends… grab this one now!
This is one swatch naked and one swatch over Nori. This is not gritty but is a bit tacky.
Double layers over my red chapped lips. This is festive and fun and fabulous!
I didn’t have the nerve to wear this out but I will… maybe New Year’s.
