BITE Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayons Review

Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayons ReviewIf you follow me on instagram, you may have noticed I’m almost always wearing BITE Beauty lipsticks. I know I’ve said before that THIS is my favorite lipstick but when it comes to matte, stay all day, bold color, camera friendly lipstick – BITE Beauty is the best. Of all the BITE Beauty lip formulas, the Matte Creme Lip Crayons are definitely my favorite (though the High Pigment Pencils and Luminous Creme Lipsticks are also pretty great). Last week, BITE Beauty launched 6 new colors of these crayons and I couldn’t decide which colors to buy… so I bought them all.

The BITE Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayons ($24, 0.05oz) are described as “long-wear, hydrating lipstick that leaves lips with a soft, matte finish” – I would say they are only slightly hydrating – otherwise, the description is pretty spot on. I’m constantly amazed that the lipstick I put on at 8:30am is (almost) just as vibrant at 6:30pm (after eating a GoMacro bar, drinking a diet coke, eating a cup of fruit and drinking a liter of water). The formula is richly pigmented and applies smoothly without any issues like feathering/bleeding and has a bit of a lemony taste/scent.

TGIF! I feel like I’m slowly but surely getting back into the swing of things. There’s a been a lot of change over the last 6 months or so (new city, new job/career, new closet – ya know, important things) and I think I underestimated how much it all affected me. But our little vacation was a nice little reset and I’m feel more motivated + inspired to show up here more often :) I know you missed me terribly :)

Above are a few snapshots of life lately – mostly from my instagram – [details from top left]

- This YSL eye shadow palette (in #3 afrique) is the only eyeshadow I took with me to Jamaica and I was pleasantly surprised at how versatile it is – the shades are easily blendable and layer beautifully! I think the warm tones are perfect for summer and it would look really pretty with most complexions eye colors! The lipstick is Bite Beauty luminous creme lipstick in vidal (a bright, cool pink)

- I’ve been wearing this Pink Stitch chevron print maxi dress (also here) a lot lately – it’s just so comfortable and I love the colors! I’m also obsessed with the bright colors of this Prima donna necklace!

- I was looking for neutral lace up sandals that weren’t too expensive and ended up purchasing these Sam Edelman sandals - sometimes totally flat sandals hurt my feet so it’s nice these have just a little heel and are perfect for running around in all day. And they pretty much go with EVERYTHING.

- Y’all. I’m OBSESSED with these Chanel les 4 ombres multi effect eyeshadow palettes – the new formula just launched in the US and the smooth, rich pigments are so, SO good – as in, better than the old formula (and I happened to really like the old formula). I purchased 202 Tisse Camelia and 204 Tisse Vendome (both pictured above) as well as the Fall collection limited edition shade Poesie (available in stores) but I really want them all!  Read more
