Bite Beauty - The Lip Kit

Hi everyone!
I hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving!! I had a great few days at home with my family and I loved every minute. Now- back to the blogs! :) One of my top holiday lip kits featured in my Top Holiday Makeup Palettes & Gift Sets video was this mini lipstick set from Bite Beauty. It's called The Lip Kit and costs $38 at Sephora. There are four double-ended lipsticks, and each lipstick is .07 ounces. I'm sure you could mix these duos to create even more shades! Several of you asked to see a post showing what these lipsticks actually look like on the lips- so here you go! :) 
First- a little background... ever since trying a trio of Bite lip products in this blog post back in August, I knew I wanted to try more. The formula of the Luminous Creme lipsticks is just incredible, and they are loaded with good-for-you ingredients. Since women truly do CONSUME so much lipstick in their lifetime, Bite uses food-grade ingredients. One of those ingredients is resveratrol, which is an antioxidant in red wine. I love how rich and moisturizing these lipsticks feel... without also feeling heavy or TOO thick on the lips. That's a huge reason why I chose this kit as one of my favorites for the season- but I also love the way this kit is put together. You're getting a really fabulous color selection, and I love the fact that all of these colors are part of Bite's regular line- not limited edition. So if you fall in love with any of these shades, you can pick up a full size. Also- the colors are SO saturated and creamy, with just the perfect amount of shine. This kit is definitely the ideal product for a lipstick lover!
 Pepper (Dusty rose) and Apricot (Warm red)
 Rose (Classic pink) and Palomino (Bright magenta)
 Musk (Brownish pink) and Pomegranate (Cherry red)
 Retsina (Nude pink) and Mulberry (Wine)

I don't know if you noticed this (I didn't until I put this post together and really looked at the diagram on the back of the packaging), but the lipsticks on the left side of the duos are all a bit more natural, and the really bold and colorful shades are on the right. I think all of those brighter shades are just striking. Mulberry is a favorite for me, but could Pomegranate be any more perfect? And how about Palomino?! And as for the softer shades- I like them because while they're lighter, they're not SHEER. Retsina is light in tone but still very full color. And Rose is so fresh! I could go on and on, but I just wanted to show you what all of those lipsticks looked like in case you were interested in the kit- or if only one or two interest you, they're all available individually

  • My empties bin is overflowing!
  • Tried Estee Lauder Double Wear Light... I gotta say it- totes amaze! LOL! Loving it! THANK YOU to my makeup loving buddy, David!! xoxo

  1. What do you use to take off your lip color without it drying the lips or making them chapped?

    1. In between trying each of these on, I dabbed the color off on a Kleenex. Sometimes trying on a bunch of lip products makes my lips feel really dry or irritated, but the process was actually pretty comfortable with these! :)

    2. Hey Emily!

      I've found that using some petroleum jelly really works in taking off all the lipstick and it helps make the lips really moisturized and smooth after! Using it is great if you're doing multiple lip swatches so you don't rub your lips raw by taking off the products. :) also, you won't be left with stained lips after! (Even the deepest colors come off like magic!)

  2. I was turned onto Bite b/c they are one of the few lip product companies that are 100% gluten free. Got one and have been addicted ever since. Not just b/c they fit my gluten free needs, but like you stated...the color payoff and product itself is AMAZING!
    I bought this set during the VIB sale and have one other one like this. I also have ventured into their Lush Fruit Lip Gloss and am in love with those. They are very dense rich coverage. Perfect for MN winter weather. I have them in Rambutan - peachy nude, Apple - candy apple red, and Peach - baby pink. Couldn't be more perfect. I highly recommend trying one. A honey laquer is on it's way now from Sephora and I can update you on this is you want?
    Take care and happy holidays. Great review. You were spot on with THIS product. :)

  4. I went to an Estee Lauder counter at the The Bay department store and was going to purchase the double wear foundation. But the sales consultant advised me to try the double wear LIGHT foundation because my skin didn't need all that foundation. And O...M...G! I love it, I don't see any fading around my t-zone, and I feel so complete with that and my double wear concealer on trouble spots (under inner corner eyes and nose tip). Totally worth the money in my opinion :)

    1. I bought a Bite Beauty lipstick in Fig. It doesn't smell like anything really. It's a good lipstick. =)

  22. Quick question: Can you see the color from the packaging without opening all the caps? I figured if there are 8 of them, I don't want to have to open all 8 of them one by one to find the right color though.

  23. I love DW light! Too bad that they don't sell the lightest shade in Finland, which I think is crazy!
