Bite Beauty Rose Luminous Creme Lipstick

Bite Beauty Rose Luminous Creme Lipstick

Bite Rose Luminous Creme Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.13 oz.) is described as a “peachy pink.” Rose is a vibrant pink with a hint of coral, but it’s like a nearly-neon watermelon pink. The color coverage is opaque, and the finish is cream, so there is a slight shine to the end result.

It is pinker than MAC Full Speed, which looks more coral, and it has a little more oomph compared to Dolce & Gabbana Splendid. It’s remarkably similar to VS Be Mine, both in color and in texture. Wet ‘n’ Wild Hot Paris Pink is darker and more coral, as is Make Up For Ever #37.

Bite Beauty is all about better ingredients, so their Luminous Creme Lipstick touts resveratrol and food-grade ingredients (supposedly “healthy enough to eat”). The lipstick is also supposed to be long-lasting and moisturizing. The texture is creamy but on the thicker side, which helps yield better color payoff, but it is not as weightless as some other formulas (even when they have opaque color). With a bright shade like Rose, I had good wear for around four hours, but by the sixth hour, I was in desperate need of reapplication. I didn’t find the formula to be long-lasting on me–four hours is the average I get from the hundreds of lipsticks I’ve tried.

It was moisturizing while I wore it, and I didn’t feel an immediate need to slather my lips in lip balm post-wear, which is always a sign of a lipstick that actually imparts moisture while it is worn. The lipstick has a lot of slip, as the creaminess of the texture allows it to slide around for the first hour or so before it seems to settle into place. I could see this making some of the darker shades more prone to bleeding. There is a faint scent of lemons but no taste.

I wish it lasted longer, as it claimed! Those who prefer more opaque color out of their lipsticks and like cream finishes are most likely to enjoy this lipstick range.

    very orangy for a “rose” and I don’t like warm shades of makeup much– but very excited to see and read about bite beauty!!! thank you Temptalia!

  2. That looks beautiful on! Really lovely. I wonder if we’ll be able to get a hold of this line in the UK.

  3. Thanks for this timely review. My sis is recommending me this particular brand of lipstick. I guess I will pass for now.

  4. Noir

    This lipstick looks lovely on you.

  5. Marieke

    That color is more than perfect. On the wishlist.

    Beautiful colour… but I’m totally flummoxed on how that colour in the tube ended up that totally different colour on your lips.

  7. AH! I was so excited to see this post! I’ve been looking at their products and thinking, “Should I?” for a couple months now. I just haven’t taken the plunge! :) Do you think you’ll be reviewing any others?

  8. Such a gorgeous colour x

  9. I LOVE this color! I wonder if that shade would suit my fair skin? Though, $22 is a bit expensive for me personally.

  10. Waw, I’ll have to take a good look at this brand’s products, I am totally in favour of environmentally friendly ingredients and this list looks really good!

  11. this is such a pretty shade! and I loved the packaging too!

  12. I have 4 different colors of this brands lipsticks (including this one) and am totally in love! <3

  13. Emily

    Oh man this looks absolutely gorgeous… I’d love to see more on these lipsticks and other Bite products. I’ve been super on-the-fence about this brand for a while.

  14. How does the slip/creaminess compare to Laura Mercier’s cream lipstick formula?

  15. Pleinair

    hi Christine, lovely color indeed:D btw how would you compare this lipstick with OCC Lip tar ‘grandma’? thanx

  16. Jianing

    That is a really beautiful color and it looks lovely on! It’s very my type of color :) Thanks for the review!

    Oh my what a lovely colour and finish. Guess I’ll be checking these out next at Sephora’s F&F. How did the lipstick seem in the tube, secure? I had to return some Tarte lipsticks the same week I bought them last Christmas bc they launched out of the tube when opened.

    Please please please please do a review on all of BITE lipsticks!!!!!!! I sent you a email but it didn’t go through. I’ve been dying to try them, but there are no reviews on the full collection from anyone. I check temptalia every day in the morning, it would be greatly appreciated. I know your very busy so thank you if you are taking the time to read this,
