Hey all! Another lip product of the moment here. A couple of months ago, a sample of their Bite Beauty Matte Crème Lip Crayon was included in one of my beauty purchases. It was in the shade Glacé. Somehow, for some reason, I misplaced it but when it magically popped up on my vanity table, I knew I had to give it its much-needed attention. To my surprise, I was blown away by the quality of the said the said lip product. First of all, I really love its texture. It gives a soft matte finish, non-drying and it feels really light on the lips. It’s very much like a lipstick, but velvety. It has a perfect complementing matte effect that doesn’t really settle into the lips’ fine lines, unlike most matte liquid lipsticks. Second, because of its “pen type” applicator, the application is smooth, easy and accurate. Thirdly, it has the most amazing scent of a lip product I’ve ever tried. The hint of orange is really interesting on this particular lip product.
One thing that struck me the most about the Bite Beauty Matte Crème Lip Crayon (0.05 oz, $24) is how beautiful the Glacé shade is. It’s a gorgeous dusty mauve that really complemented my lips’ natural tones. It looks like something I could wear every day and it looks my kind of shade. Because of that, I couldn’t help but take note to drop by at the Bite Beauty aisle for more shades of the Matte Crème Lip Crayons for my next Sephora visit.
When I finally had a chance to check out the other colors of the Matte Crème Lip Crayons, I realize that they’re almost all good. Lots of very pretty everyday shades, lots of muted colors, and wearable pinks and browns. It was so tempting to buy them all. But I couldn’t get crazy, so, I decided on two starters, the Pastille shade and the Amaretto.
- Pastille – Dusty Mauve. A shade that’s very similar to Glacé but more on the mauve-purple/pink side. The shade is very pretty and will complement any skin tone. It’s muted for daily wear I’d say that this is the next best thing especially for those who wanted a bit more color from Glacé.
- Amaretto – Peachy Nude. I’m normally not crazy for nudes, but this particular nude is a yes for me. It’s peachy warm and it’ll look great on anybody with a light to medium skin tone. It’s even great a perfect neutral nude for darker tones. This particular nude hue is very versatile for sure.
- Glacé – I’m really gogo gaga about this shade. I still have my original sample size that I’ve been using constantly lately, but I’m pretty sure I’ll be purchasing it in its regular size soon. This is a beautiful shade of dusty mauve rose that I tend to prefer in most of my lipstick shade. It also kinda reminds me of YSL #66 Bois de Rose which is my signature lip shade.
About the packaging, it seems like every Bite Beauty products feel really comforting to the touch. I love their velvety textured containers and tubes, so the Matte Crème Lip Crayons are no different at all. Also, its packaging allows for no-mess application and there’s definitely no need to sharpen the product at all.
Verdict, these are definitely one of the best lip product finds for me lately since it has everything I’d want in a lippy; the ease of application, great pigments, lightweight comfortable textures, non-drying matte finish, and colors to last for 4-6 hours with delicious non-boring scent. What more could you ask for?
