Bite Beauty Crush Cashmere Lip Cream
Bite Beauty Crush Cashmere Lip Cream

Bite Beauty Crush Cashmere Lip Cream ($28.00 for 0.26 fl. oz.) is described as a “reddish coral.” It’s a vibrant–nearly neon–coral-red with warm undertones and a satin finish. Dior Sunset (660) (LE, $34.00) is more shimmery, less neon. Estee Lauder Defiant Coral (P, $30.00) is a smidgen lighter. Givenchy Rose Dentelle (203) (P, $36.00) is darker, more muted. Too Faced Coral Fire (P, $21.00) is more muted. Givenchy Rose Dressing (202) (P, $36.00) is pinker. MAC Watch Me Simmer (LE, $16.00) is pinker. Make Up For Ever #37 (P, $19.00) is slightly darker, pinker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

The formula is supposed to be a “cream-to-powder matte lip color that delivers an unprecedented 50 percent pigment dispersion.” There’s no question that Crush is intensely pigmented–full, opaque color coverage is easily delivered in a single layer. The consistency is creamy, not too thin or too thick, but it retains a slight slip, so it’s comfortable to wear. It was neither drying nor hydrating on me over the six hours it lasted, and it does leave behind a stain that lingers for another hour or two. I didn’t have any issues with the color feathering or bleeding outside my lip line. The formula has a slight herbal-ish scent that’s very subtle–I only really notice if I smell the actual applicator, but I don’t notice it when it is applied (and there’s no discernible taste). As I’ve mentioned before, the only potential issue is really that it’s not a matte finish from the get-go; it takes at least two hours for the satin finish to wear down to something more matte.

  1. Oh my! the pigmentation is just awesome :) love the shade and beautiful on you xoxo

  2. Ha! I seriously just ordered this about two minutes before I saw this review! Glad you like it.

    Wow, even through my terrible little screen, that colour looks almost neon! I’ve swatched these and not loved them, but I think that’s probably because the testers have dried out, you could barely get any colour at all; thank you for changing my mind about them! This looks great on you!

  4. LOVE THIS! And this is a shade I would get a lot of use from.

  5. With Estee Lauder Defiant Coral and Dior Sunset recently added.. I’ll pass on this.. but still want to grab some of the vampier shades in this formula.

  6. Oh, I really really love this color! It looks amazing on you!! <3

  9. That’s a great shade and I think that even though it leans warm (on my screen anyhow) it looks almost neutral enough for all but the coolest complexions!

  10. Soooo glad you just reviewed this, just added it to my sephora basket along with Moscato!

    I’m more of a lurker here, but I’ve been dying for your review on this and I’m glad to see it! I have it and ADORE the color. I’m not sure I’m crazy about having a matte finish, but the color itself is enough to make me hold onto it! I like to top it off with a coral Buxom lip gloss. Waiting anxiously for my Bite Beauty Deconstructed lip glosses to arrive to try with! Will you be getting those?

  12. I love how pigmented it is! Great color on you!

  13. It’s beautiful!!! But two hours to turn into a matte? If I were Bite I wouldn’t market or label it as a matte finish then because it’s just like any satin/creme finish lipstick who’s gloss wears off and/or leaves a stain. Still, I’m curious to try this as I love liquid lipsticks xx

    • I agree – I think they’re more of a satin finish. Unless you apply like, the barest dab, and then blend it out, it’s really not matte!


  15. What a great color! Looks great with the GA Cheek Fabric you’re wearing here!

    omgggggggggggggg THIS IS PERFECTION! love love the color! would these be any similar to the Lip Maestro’s from Armani? I was hoping that these Bite ones last longer (don’t transfer nor feather) :))

    • The texture and way they feel on the lips seems different to me! But these definitely transfer. No feathering on me (but I am not prone to feathering/bleeding).

  19. THe formula looks super-comfy on lips and the shade is prettyy too.. love such matte finish glosses.. :)

  20. One of the most beautiful red-corals I’ve seen. I think I’m in love!
    Nikki Recently Posted: Make Up For Ever Face & Body Liquid Make Up (Ivory 20)

  21. I definitely have to check these lip creams out, they look gorgeous and I love a good liquid lipstick!

  22. It looks lovely on you! I absolutely love the formula ita amazing

    What foundation shade do you have on, Christine? I love the finish on you!

  26. zg

    I am not a coral baby but Girl!!! this one is giving me LIFE!!

    I will be purchasing this one..

  27. Dara

    Would this be similar to muse from hourglass opaque rouge liquid lipstick?

  28. Very disappointed with the packaging of this product; it already leaked… color is great but I don’t think I’ll be buying this brand again until the packaging issue is addressed. Seems this is not an isolated problem…
