Bitten by my first Bite Beauty lipstick!

 
When I say I was bitten I mean I was bitten in a good way!  I'd been intrigued for a while because I'd read, heard, almost osmotically (not literally of course!) absorbed the vibe that Bite Beauty lipsticks were goooood, and you know that means a must try!
 
I never thought I'd stumble across these lipsticks in a vitamin store, especially a vitamin store called Go Vita(?!) but that's how it happened for me.  My first Bite Beauty pick is the warm pink cream Rose from their Luminous Crème Lipstick collection.  I chose it for the creaminess and rich opacity of the swatch, and the summery pink colour.  Unfortunately it appears a lot more coral in my pictures but trust me it's definitely a pink - Bite describe it as a peachy pink to give you more of an idea.
 
 
 
The Luminous Crème formula glides on and one swipe gives guaranteed coverage.  These feel so divinely creamy on the lips too! The creaminess makes me want to apply it, not just because it's a pretty colour but because it feels so comfortable and enriching on my lips.  Wear time is fantastic and lasts a good few hours without a touch up - and no bleeding!! There is a very slight scent when sniffing the bullet in the tube but it is not detectable once on the lips. 
 
The report card ingredients wise is A+ too.  From the Sephora website:
 
"This lip color delivers super antioxidant resveratrol, which fights free radicals with potent long-term antiaging benefits. Each lipstick contains the amount of resveratrol found in five glasses of red wine...
 
What it is formulated WITHOUT:

- Parabens
- Sulfates
- Synthetic Fragrances
- Synthetic Dyes
- Petrochemicals
- Phthalates
- GMOs
- Triclosan"
 
If I must be picky it will be about two things - and one is me just being plain ridiculous probably and revealing more about myself and my own quirks than any real failing of this lipstick:
 
1) Price - Of course right?  Unfortunately these are around $36.95AUD or slightly more than MAC down here.  Given the fantastic formula - antiaging is the word - I can forgive the price.
 
2) The rubberized grey packaging is a bit too utilitarian for my liking.  That's just my opinion of course and stems from a lifelong dislike of anything grey after wearing it as my school uniform for six years.  Okayyyy, that is definitely just me and my personal preferences taking over.
 
Swatched on the back of my hand...
 
...and on my lips
 
Overall, I think this lipstick deserves a place on my own little lipstick leader board.  It's almost up there with my precious Tom Fords.  Yes I am 100% serious.
 
Have you been bitten by Bite Beauty lipstick?

    1. I highly recommend these - there's a gorgeous red shade Pomegranate that I have my eye on for my next purchase (after I've finished a few lippies first)!

  5. The colour is gorgeous on you! It looks to be really moisturising with nice colour payoff too. I've never seen Bite in the shops here - must go looking in more vitamin shops lol!

  7. It's GORGEOUS on you! It just brightens up your face and your eyes twinkle! I love their lipstick, but the company kind of BUGS me. They're Canadian, these lipsticks are made in Canada, yet they charge us MORE than than they do for the USA. MAKES ME SO SO GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR hahaha.

    1. That pricing situation is just weird. I saw Maggie on Maggiesmakeuptv talking about it in her last haul video and I just can't understand why you would have to pay MORE for a local product? Maybe to up the amp on the luxe factor?! In any case I can tell you I will be buying these lipsticks again because they do feel so comfortable on my lips - and sure the price is highish but then again they're a steal compared to Mr TF ;)

  9. So pretty!!! I have one of their pencils but not an actual lipstick - keep wanting to try but I don't have some place to swatch close to me. T_T

    1. Oh damn Larie! Once you swatch it could be dangerous - these are addictively creamy!

  10. This looks amazing on you!

    But yes, the weird Cdn $ thing. I brought up the pricing discrepancy on Maggie's blog and am actively avoiding BITE until they remedy that. Their lab is right here in Toronto and it just isn't acceptable.

    1. I completely support you on that! I can't understand why you guys should be disadvantaged when seriously you should have better prices if anything!

  11. Your swatch and lip swatch literally made me look on ebay or anywhere for that colour. Stunning! I think this goes on the wishlist.... :)
