The Bite Beauty Lip Lab Limited Release Crème Deluxe Lipstick Shade for August is called Sweet Mandarin. This sold out in about 2 days, but I have some comparisons down below that are close(ish).

Shade 008 (Sweet Mandarin) is described as a bright, balanced orange.

It goes on the lips smooth and even, no streaking or feathering, which is similar to almost all of the lipsticks in this formula. It’s also really hydrating, although not at all transferproof (I got lipstick all over my brunch today).

It’s a nice balance in between the red coral of Toxic Tale and the yellow undertones of Neon Orange. I’d say if you’re looking to dupe this shade grab Neon Orange and add a touch of red.

My fave look with this lipstick is pairing it with a warm burgundy eye look. Since the orange is so balanced (not too warm OR cool) you can really mix it with anything and it looks nice on practically all skintones.

Although this sweet shade is gone for good, September’s shade will be up on the 2nd and you can grab it here. I can’t wait for what fall brings!
