Bite Beauty Mulberry/Scarlet Luminous Creme Lipstick Duo

Bite Beauty Mulberry/Scarlet Luminous Creme Lipstick Duo
Bite Beauty Mulberry/Scarlet Luminous Creme Lipstick Duo

Bite Beauty Mulberry/Scarlet Luminous Creme Lipstick Duo ($14.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a dual-ended lipstick, so there is a lipstick shade on each side. This is one of the darker sets of shades, and unfortunately, the deeper burgundy shade was problematic, as this type of shade often is (so it’s really the norm rather than the exception).

Mulberry is a medium-dark, cool-toned plum-berry with reddish tones and a luminous finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage with a slight translucency overall, so if you have more coloring to your natural lip color, this could turn redder or appear darker. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy, and covered evenly. On me, this shade lasted for five hours and left a stain, while the formula was hydrating. This shade is also available individually in the permanent range. MAC Marsala (P, $21.00) is brighter (90% similar). Smashbox Black Cherry (LE, $21.00) is cooler (95% similar). Bite Beauty Beetroot (P, $26.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (90% similar). Bite Beauty Jam (P, $26.00) is darker (95% similar). Too Faced Berry Naughty (P, $22.00) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (90% similar). YSL Forbidden Burgundy (12) (DC, $34.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Bite Beauty Plum (LE, $24.00) is darker (90% similar). Inglot #293 Lipstick Cream (P, $12.00) is darker, glossier (90% similar). Bite Beauty Sugared Maple (LE, $24.00) is darker (90% similar). Burberry Bright Plum (15) (P, $30.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Tarte Hangry (P, $20.00) is darker, more muted, cooler (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Brocade (P, $35.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (90% similar). Bite Beauty Aubergine (P, $24.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Hibiscus (P, $35.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Purple Noon (LE, $52.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (85% similar). Chanel Cassis (P, $37.00) is darker (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Cabaret (146) (DC, $30.00) is more muted (85% similar). MAC Labradorable (LE, $23.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). NARS Vera (P, $32.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (85% similar). MAC Rebel (P, $17.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (85% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Scarlet is a medium-dark, deep red with warm undertones and a glossy finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with enough slip that it made application a pain, as the color applied unevenly. It wore for four and a half hours but feathered on me. Bite Beauty #001 (LE, $36.00) is warmer (95% similar). Bite Beauty Black Cherry (LE, $24.00) is cooler (95% similar). Bite Beauty Mulled Maple (LE, $24.00) is lighter (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Blow (210) (P, $30.00) is lighter (95% similar). Smashbox Brick Trick (P, $24.00) is darker, glossier (90% similar).

Tom Ford Beauty Nikita (Right) (LE, ) is lighter (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Your Majesty (P, $35.00) is more muted (90% similar). NARS Ingrid (P, $32.00) is darker (90% similar). Bite Beauty #001 (Reformulation) (LE, $36.00) is warmer (90% similar). Buxom Voodoo Spice (P, $22.00) is less glossy (90% similar). MAC Tribalist (LE, $17.00) is more muted (90% similar).

Bite Beauty Palomino/Pomegranate Luminous Creme Lipstick Duo

Bite Beauty Palomino/Pomegranate Luminous Creme Lipstick Duo
Bite Beauty Palomino/Pomegranate Luminous Creme Lipstick Duo

Bite Beauty Palomino/Pomegranate Luminous Creme Lipstick Duo ($14.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a duo of fuchsia and neutral red. The Mix ‘n’ Mingle duos are a good way to try the Bite formula without having to spend a lot–you get two-thirds of a full-sized shade for $14 (instead of $24). I’m a big fan of the Luminous Creme formula, which is supposed to be richly pigmented, hydrating, and long-wearing; and it usually lives up to those claims. Both of these shades are nice, and they are also both part of the permanent range should you love only one or want to pick-up a full-size.

Palomino is a medium-dark, fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a satin finish. It had very good color payoff with a creamy, smooth texture that glided across the lips without tugging and was comfortable to wear without emphasizing the lip’s natural texture. The texture is light-medium in thickness, but it had a little less glossiness than some of the Luminous Creme shades. It wore well for six hours and left a stain behind, and it was hydrating while worn. Bite Beauty Radish (P, $26.00) is lighter (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Voila! (120) (DC, $30.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Flowerscope (LE, $17.00) is darker (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Cooper (LE, $35.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Chanel Romy (462) (P, $37.00) is lighter (90% similar). Too Faced Jelly Bean (P, $22.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Bite Beauty #004 (LE, $36.00) is darker (90% similar). Bite Beauty Crianza (P, $28.00) is warmer, less glossy (90% similar). Chanel Roman (208) (P, $37.00) is warmer (90% similar). Estee Lauder Tumultuous Pink (P, $32.00) is warmer (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Raspberry Pink (P, $35.00) is more muted (90% similar). Guerlain Champs-Elysees (P, $37.00) is darker (90% similar). Guerlain Rose Grenat (864) (LE, $55.00) is brighter, warmer, glossier (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Logan (P, $35.00) is more shimmery, more muted (85% similar). Urban Decay Plaid (LE, $18.00) is darker, more muted, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Pomegranate is a medium red with neutral-to-warm undertones and a glossy, creamy finish. It had nearly opaque color payoff with a particularly glossy shine compared to the average shade in the range (kind of funny how they were both more/less glossy compared to the standard shade!). It covered evenly and smoothly, while it was easy to wear over five and a half hours. Estee Lauder Vengeful Red (P, $32.00) is lighter, brighter (95% similar). Guerlain Rouge Parade (820) (LE, $55.00) is lighter, brighter (95% similar). Shiseido Poppy (RD312) (P, $28.00) is lighter (95% similar).

Bite Beauty Confection / Marmalade Luminous Creme Lipstick Duo

Bite Beauty Confection/Marmalade Luminous Creme Lipstick Duo
Bite Beauty Confection/Marmalade Luminous Creme Lipstick Duo

Bite Beauty Confection/Marmalade Luminous Creme Lipstick Duo ($14.00 for 0.10 oz.) consists of a bright, pop of fuchsia pink paired with a warmer, medium orange. It’s another good set of shades that performs well and lives up to its claims! Bite’s Luminous Creme formula is very consistent for me, so I’m happy to see it is equally consistent in their mini duos.

Confection is a pop of medium pink with cool, blue undertones and a satin finish. There’s a slightly muted quality to the color, which makes it appear softer compared to its more neon cousins. The texture was light-medium in weight, creamy enough to glide on, but it wasn’t as emollient as other shades in the range, and I found it a little less hydrating overall but it was still somewhat moisturizing. This shade wore well for four and a half hours. Givenchy Rose Perfecto (209) (P, $36.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Kelly Yum-Yum (LE, $17.00) is lighter (95% similar).

Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Marmalade is a bright, medium-dark orange with warm, red undertones and a natural sheen. It was intensely pigmented with a smooth, creamy consistency that was comfortable to wear and applied beautifully. The color wore well for five hours and was nicely hydrating over time. Dior Trafalgar (844) (P, $34.00) is darker, cooler (95% similar). NARS Short Circuit (LE, $26.00) is glossier (95% similar). Make Up For Ever C403 (P, $22.00) is darker (95% similar).

Bite Beauty Holly/Tannin Luminous Creme Lipstick Duo

Bite Beauty Holly/Tannin Luminous Creme Lipstick Duo
Bite Beauty Holly/Tannin Luminous Creme Lipstick Duo

Bite Beauty Holly/Tannin Luminous Creme Lipstick Duo ($14.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a dual-ended lipstick, so there is a lipstick shade on each side. This is a double dose of red–one warmer and brighter, one cooler and deeper. Both shades are lovely to apply and wear, and there were no issues with application, hydration, or wear; both shades could have been a little bit more pigmented.

Holly is a medium, orange-red with warm undertones and a creamy, natural sheen. It had great color payoff with a lightweight, creamy texture that glided on and was comfortable to wear. It lasted for six hours and was nicely hydrating over time. Anna Sui Minnie Mouse (01) (LE, ) is cooler (95% similar). Shiseido Poppy (RD312) (P, $28.00) is darker, cooler (95% similar). Hourglass Lover (P, $32.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Fireworks (LE, $21.00) is darker (95% similar). Estee Lauder Noirish (P, $32.00) is cooler (95% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Tannin is a slightly muted, medium-dark red with subtle, cool undertones and a natural sheen. It was mostly opaque, but you could still see my lip freckle come through and how the color had some translucency where the natural lip color can be seen (so depending on your coloring, it may or may not influence the end result or tone of the lipstick itself). On me, it wore well for five and a half hours and was moisturizing. MAC Mind Control (LE, $17.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Brave Red (LE, $30.00) is lighter, less glossy (95% similar). Maybelline On Fire Red (P, $7.99) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Como La Flor (LE, $17.00) is darker (95% similar). Estee Lauder Boldface (P, $32.00) is darker (95% similar).

Zoeva En Taupe Eyeshadow Palette

Zoeva En Taupe Eyeshadow Palette
Zoeva En Taupe Eyeshadow Palette

Zoeva En Taupe Eyeshadow Palette ($21.50 for 0.50 oz.) is a taupe-themed palette that features ten eyeshadows. Currently, for U.S. readers, you’ll only find it through Zoeva’s website, which will ship, but at a flat rate of $16.50 (so make your order count). I have ordered from them previously and have had good luck (fast and well-packaged). Zoeva’s eyeshadow formula is supposed to be richly pigmented and blendable. The formula used in the palette is nice; most of the shades had good pigmentation and were easy to apply to the lid. There’s a nice mix of finishes, and the colors coordinate well with each other. The palette could use one or two deeper shades (and skip one of the lighter or mid-tone shades) for more contrast, I think.

Stitch by Stitch is a muted, cool-toned ivory white with a semi-matte finish. It had excellent color payoff with a smooth, creamy consistency that applied well and wore for eight hours. Tarte Vintage (P, ) is warmer (95% similar). Viseart Ivoire (P, ) is lighter (95% similar). Smashbox Snow (LE, ) is darker, cooler (95% similar). Viseart Cool Matte #1 (P, ) is cooler (95% similar). LORAC Linen (P, $19.00) is cooler (95% similar). Kat Von D Skull (LE, ) is less shimmery, cooler (95% similar). Makeup Geek White Lies (P, $6.00) is darker (95% similar). Sephora Swan Song (P, $10.00) is lighter (95% similar). bareMinerals Chance (P, ) is warmer (95% similar). LORAC Tails & Top Hats #1 (LE, $19.00) is lighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Thirteen (P, $19.00) is darker (95% similar). Too Faced White Christmas (LE, $16.00) is darker, cooler (95% similar). MAC Pick Me Up (P, $16.00) is warmer (95% similar). Tarte Charmer (P, ) is darker, cooler (95% similar). Kat Von D Lifelike (P, ) is warmer (90% similar). Too Faced Coconut Cream (LE, $16.00) is warmer (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Handmade is a light pink-peach with warm, golden frost. It had good pigmentation with a slightly dusty consistency, though it was blendable on the skin. It tended to sheer out slightly in practice, but it was buildable and wore for eight hours. Makeup Geek I'm Peachless (P, $6.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Kat Von D Glitz (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Too Faced Satin Sheets (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar).

Urban Decay X (P, $19.00) is darker (85% similar). NYX Girl Talk (P, $6.00) is darker (85% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Gallery is a cool-toned, medium-dark taupe with strong gray tones and a matte finish. It appeared quite brown in the pan, but it is extremely gray swatched and used. It had good color payoff with a soft, smooth, and blendable consistency. It was just a smidgen dusty but wasn’t noticeable during application. This shade lasted for eight hours. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Free Spirit No. 11 (LE, ) is darker (95% similar). Colour Pop Harley (P, $5.00) is darker (95% similar). Kat Von D Smoke (Base) (P, ) is darker (90% similar).

MAC Smoked Cocoa #2 (LE, $16.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Hour by Hour is a muted, light-medium peachy beige with warm undertones and a matte finish. This was the dud in the palette for me, as the texture was quite firm and harder to get color out of. It wore for seven hours on me. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Free Spirit No. 5 (LE, ) is lighter (90% similar). Too Faced Cashew Chew (P, $16.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Georgia Peach (P, $16.00) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Frisco (LE, $16.00) is darker, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Old Master is a muted, dark, grayed purple with subtle gold sparkle. The sparkle doesn’t tend to stick around much, so it functions more as a slightly matte finish overall. It had good color payoff with a soft, blendable texture that was a bit dusty. The color wore well for almost eight hours. Viseart Cool Matte #10 (P, ) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Howzat (LE, $16.00) is more muted (90% similar). MAC Stay Sultry (LE, $16.00) is darker, brighter (90% similar). Stila Eggplant (LE, $18.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar).

Colour Pop Party Time (LE, $5.00) is warmer (80% similar). Sugarpill Castle on the Hill (P, $16.00) is warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Spun Pearl is a bright, shimmering white with subtle, cool undertones. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a drier, slightly dusty consistency that made it prone to sheering out on the skin. This shade wore for eight hours before fading on me. L'Oreal Petite Perle (P, $5.99) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Holy, Holy (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Crystal Avalanche (DC, $16.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Buxom Velvet Snow (LE, $12.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Vapour (P, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Too Faced Love Flush Blush Palette

Too Faced Love Flush Blush Wardrobe
Too Faced Love Flush Blush Wardrobe

Too Faced Love Flush Blush Wardrobe ($36.00 for 0.42 oz.) includes six, miniature-sized blushes–all six that exist in the Love Flush range. The palette contains $52 worth of blush, and it is a nice way to try six for less than the price of two full-sized ones. I love the concept, and I think the quality is on-par with or better than the permanent, individual pans that came out. The big takeaway is that I think the formula is better than it rates, as it primarily gets dinged for not lasting the 16-hours promised (wear is between eight and ten hours), so if getting half the stated wear-time isn’t a deal-breaker, the formula is well-worth a look, whether an individual shade or the palette. The shades were extremely consistent with the individual compacts I tested previously; I specifically tested the shades in the palette for quality and wear, but for the photos of the blushes on my face, those were taken from original reviews.

I know the most frequently asked question/made comment was with respect to the physical width/size of the pans, and they’re large enough for an average-sized blush brush to fit (I tried a Wayne Goss Blush Brush and MAC 159 Blush Brush), but even still, the reason why it works is there is enough space between each pan, so you do not have to worry about colors mixing. Also worth noting, the packaging is very long, so it is harder to store in an average-sized makeup bag.

Love Hangover is a light-medium, pink-coral with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It had good pigmentation (more pigmented than the individual I have!) with a soft, blendable texture that was easy to apply and diffuse on the skin. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me.

FORMULA SUMMARY | Too Faced Love Flush Blush Wardrobe ($26.00 for 0.21 oz.) is supposed to be an exceptionally long-wearing (16 hours), pigmented, and “buttery soft” blush. It’s a nice blush, but unsurprisingly, it doesn’t last 16 hours. Some shades last eight hours, others last a little closer to ten hours–it is nice wear for powder blush generally, but you’ll find that many shades’ ratings took a hit because of the 16-hour wear claim. The blush has a soft texture that’s just firm enough not to kick up a lot of excess powder, but it’s not too firm where you can’t get good color payoff when you use it. Pigmentation varied from shade to shade and ranged from semi-opaque to totally opaque, while the blush tended to blend well on the skin with a satin to luminous finish. The compacts may be a little hard to open if you have larger fingers/hands (like me), and sometimes I felt like the pattern made it harder to get good pigmentation out of the blush if I used a more feathery brush.
