What It Is:
BITE Beauty Matte Crème Lip Crayon* in Kumquat, Sweety and Blood Orange
Why This Should Be in Your Bag:
Bright lips are SO in for Spring/Summer, but there’s often a tradeoff between mad pigment and uncomfortable wear. Matte lip products are notoriously drying and by the end of the day I often regret my choice of lip product.
BITE Beauty are the queens of lip products as far as I’m concerned. The brand is a lesson in sticking to one thing and doing it so, so right. Their newest offering, Matte Crème Lip Crayon, promises “a moisture-rich, matte-finish lipstick with a delicious citrus scent.” That citrus scent comes from infused citrus peel for a finish that is matte, yet hydrating, and may solve my matte lip woes. So exciting!
How To Use It:
Since these lipsticks come in pencil form, application is a breeze. I just trace my lips with the sharp tip and then fill in!
CC Rating: A
I absolutely adore the BITE Beauty Matte Crème Lip Crayons. (Editor’s Note: We’ve even already wrote these lip crayons a love letter.) They are so comfortable to wear and insanely pigmented. Blood Orange is my personal favourite and brightens up my pale skin so beautifully – I can imagine it’s going to look even sharper with a tan!
At first the amount (0.05oz) seemed rather tiny, so I investigated the brand’s other lip products to compare. Their other pencil product retails for $24 at 0.09oz, so you’re getting more product for the same price, but not the added benefits of the Lip Crayons. Their High Pigment Pencil also imparts a more glossy finish, so it really depends on what you’re after. I don’t find myself reaching for the High Pigment Pencils often, but I love the Matte Crème Lip Crayons, even though they’re not the most budget-friendly.
Sephora is the exclusive retailer for the BITE Beauty Matte Crème Lip Crayons. You can get them at their website for $24! They’re limited edition, so if you’re interested don’t delay!
