Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayons (Part 1)

Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayon ($24.00 for 0.05 oz.) is supposed to be a “moisture-rich, matte-finish lipstick with a delicious citrus scent.” All three shades featured in this review are richly pigmented with a texture that’s moderately creamy but lightweight. They were really comfortable to wear, even though they have more of a matte finish; they don’t feel clingy, and I experienced light to moderate hydration across these shades. The matte finish combined with the pigmentation makes it a long-wearing formula, too. I didn’t have issues with feathering or bleeding, though I’m not prone to either of these. They have a lemony-herbal-y scent to me, which may or may not be appealing to you. The only downside is that the pencil is only 0.05 oz., which is half the size of the average-sized lipstick. I’ll be reviewing the other three shades in the range soon, so stay tuned!

Guerlain Gladys (78), Galiane (15), Gaetane (16) Rouge G Lipsticks

Guerlain Gladys (78) Rouge G Lipstick ($51.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “vibrant fuchsia.” It’s a rich, medium-dark fuchsia-shimmered berry with cool undertones and a luminous sheen. The color payoff was incredibly intense and opaque–one pass is all you need–and the coverage was even and made lips look smoother. This shade wore well for six hours, and it left a noticeable stain behind, while still being hydrating and comfortable to wear. This is a new and permanent shade. Guerlain Rose Grenat (864) (LE, $51.00) is lighter, brighter, less shimmery. YSL Exquisite Plum (22) (P, $34.00) is darker. YSL Forbidden Burgundy (12) (P, $34.00) is darker. MAC Commotion (LE, $20.00) is sheerer, more muted. Urban Decay Venom (P, $22.00) is darker. Guerlain Gigi (P, $51.00) is less shimmery, brighter. Guerlain Champs-Elysees (P, $35.00) is brighter, more fuchsia. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
