Bite Beauty Caramel & Cream Butter Cream Lipsticks

Bite Beauty Caramel Butter Cream Lipstick
Bite Beauty Caramel Butter Cream Lipstick

Bite Beauty Caramel Butter Cream Lipstick ($28.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “fleshy nude.” It’s a muted, medium peach with a hint of beige and brown. The color had warmer undertones with a luminous sheen. It had mostly opaque color payoff, but the texture had a bit more slip than some of the other shades in the range, which led to a slightly streaky application. On me, this shade stayed on well for four hours and was nicely hydrating. MAC Soft Pout (P, $23.00) is lighter. Bite Beauty Amaretto (P, $24.00) is lighter, more matte. Charlotte Tilbury Hepburn Honey (P, $32.00) is warmer. Givenchy Beige Caraco (107) (P, $36.00) is lighter. Givenchy Beige Mousseline (101) (P, $36.00) is lighter. Urban Decay Naked 2 (P, $22.00) is lighter. Edward Bess Forbidden Flower (P, $32.00) is warmer. NARS Isola Bella (P, $25.00) is brighter, more matte. MAC Posh Tone (P, $22.00) is similar. MAC Delectable (LE, $16.00) is more matte. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Bite Beauty Cream Butter Cream Lipstick ($28.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as an “almond nude.” It’s a muted, medium yellowed beige with warm undertones and a soft shine. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied with some streaks and had a tendency to pull into lip lines over time. This was one of my least favorites due to its performance. It lasted for three and a half hours, but it was nicely hydrating. MAC Soft Pout (P, $23.00) is similar. Bite Beauty Amaretto (P, $24.00) is more matte, pinker. Charlotte Tilbury Hepburn Honey (P, $32.00) is brighter. Givenchy Beige Caraco (107) (P, $36.00) is brighter. Too Faced Melted Nude (P, $21.00) is more matte, lighter. Maybelline Truffle Tease (930) (P, $7.49) is similar. MAC Sensual Sparks (LE, $16.00) is similar. Givenchy Beige Mousseline (101) (P, $36.00) is pinker. Marc Jacobs Beauty Severine (112) (P, $30.00) is similar. Urban Decay Naked 2 (P, $22.00) is similar. NARS Biscayne Park (P, $25.00) is more matte. MAC Posh Tone (P, $22.00) is darker.

Anastasia Sweet Talker Liquid Lipstick

Anastasia Sweet Talker Liquid Lipstick
Anastasia Sweet Talker Liquid Lipstick

Anastasia Sweet Talker Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “watermelon pink.” It’s a bright, neon pink with warm undertones and an ultra-matte finish. Kat Von D Berlin (P, $19.00) is darker, warmer. MAC No Faux Pas (LE, $16.00) is darker, cooler-toned. MAC Good Kisser (LE, $16.00) is darker, cooler-toned. Marc Jacobs Beauty Wham (604) (P, $28.00) is warmer, less matte. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

This shade is intensely pigmented with really smooth, even color coverage. It didn’t settle into lip lines, and it doesn’t look really dry on lips, but it does have a very flat, ultra-matte finish, so if you prefer a little sheen, this formula might not be for you. Over time, I felt the formula was noticeably drying by the fourth hour of wear, and it was very drying after six hours of wear, though it lasted well for almost eight hours. It did fade from the center more than the edges, but it only faded subtly, so it wasn’t too apparent.

Bite Beauty Heather & Pecan Butter Cream Lipsticks

Bite Beauty Heather Butter Cream Lipstick
Bite Beauty Heather Butter Cream Lipstick

Bite Beauty Heather Butter Cream Lipstick ($28.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “dusty rose.” It’s a muted, pink-coral with warm undertones and a glossy finish. The texture was creamier with more slip than other shades I’ve tried, which made it apply with some streaking. It had mostly opaque pigmentation and lasted for four hours on me, while the formula was hydrating while worn. Marc Jacobs Beauty Roleplay (110) (P, $30.00) is more matte, cooler-toned. Estee Lauder Eccentric (P, $30.00) is lighter, pinker. Charlotte Tilbury Bitch Perfect (P, $32.00) is lighter. Bite Beauty Centifolia (LE, $28.00) is brighter, warmer. bareMinerals Feel the Love (LE) is darker. Marc Jacobs Beauty Understudy (114) (P, $30.00) is brighter, more matte.

Bite Beauty Pecan Butter Cream Lipstick ($28.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “warm dusty pink.” It’s a medium, muted, peachy brown with warm undertones and a soft shine. It had rich, opaque color payoff that glided on evenly and smoothly. The texture was slightly thicker than average but not overly heavy. It was hydrating without sliding around, and it wore well for five hours on me. I was surprised to find few close shades to it (from what I’ve reviewed).Colour Pop Button (P, $5.00) is lighter, more matte. Bite Beauty Leche (P, $24.00) is much lighter.

Bite Beauty Hazelnut & Rosewood Butter Cream Lipsticks

Bite Beauty Hazelnut Butter Cream Lipstick
Bite Beauty Hazelnut Butter Cream Lipstick

Bite Beauty Butter Cream Lipstick ($28.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a creamy, thicker, and hydrating formula with good color payoff, light shine, and moderate wear time. The formula has eight shades, and I’ve tested two so far (I bought four initially, liked them enough to buy the remaining four for review, too). According to the brand, the selling point of the lipstick is that they “hand cut each bullet, removing the outer waxy layer,” which gives the lipstick an “impossibly creamy core.” They’re nice overall, and the only downside was that the thicker consistency may catch on flakes if you have them. It feels thicker than their Luminous Creme range, but they are less glossy. It is creamy, to a degree, but the slightly heavier and thicker texture make it firmer overall. It’s not as creamy as formulas like NARS Audacious or YSL Rouge Volupte (probably one of the creamiest formulas, all-time), but the thicker quality makes it adhere and stay on longer, as it doesn’t slide or slip all over the place. As a bonus, thicker lipsticks often cover more pigmented lips better.

As far as the “hand cut” bit, take it or leave it; I don’t really think it adds anything (Luminous Creme formula has a traditional bullet, and it’s very creamy and emollient!). My lips are large enough/shaped to the point where I didn’t have issues using the more bluntly cut edge to apply to my lips, but I still prefer the traditional shape for better precision. “Hand cut” is also not emblazoned on the actual bullet, it is just a translucent paper tab that is placed over it. The packaging is heavier and more substantial than the Luminous Creme formula–it feels weightier to me. The scent is similar to the rest of Bite’s products, which is a subtle fruit-y scent that seems more like what their base smells like than added fragrance.

Bite Beauty Hazelnut Butter Cream Lipstick ($28.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “brown pink.” It’s a muted, medium-dark rosy brown with subtle, warm undertones and a satin sheen. It had mostly opaque color coverage that applied evenly and smoothly. On me, it lasted for five hours and was hydrating over time. Marc Jacobs Beauty Roleplay (110) (P, $30.00) is lighter, more matte. Tom Ford Beauty Richard (LE, $32.00) is brighter, darker. Bite Beauty Glace (P, $24.00) is more matte, lighter. Tom Ford Beauty Negligee (LE, $50.00) is brighter, darker. NARS Bansar (P, $25.00) is browner. bareMinerals Break Away (LE) is warmer, lighter. Givenchy Rose d’Exception (206) (LE, $36.00) is cooler-toned, lighter. Revlon Pink Truffle (P, $7.49) is glossier, sheerer. NARS Tolede (P, $26.00) is pinker. MAC Grande Dame (P, $22.00) is warmer, brighter. MAC Gem of Roses (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery, cooler-toned. Giorgio Armani Blush (500) (P, $32.00) is lighter. Benefit La La Land (DC, $18.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Bite Beauty Rosewood Butter Cream Lipstick ($28.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “plum rosewood.” It’s a dusky, medium-dark rosy plum with very subtle, warm undertones and a soft shine. It had good, mostly opaque color coverage with a lightly creamy, thickened consistency that went on evenly and smoothly. The color wore well for five hours and was moisturizing while worn. Tom Ford Beauty Cary (LE, $32.00) is slightly more matte. Tom Ford Beauty Richard (LE, $32.00) is warmer. Tom Ford Beauty Negligee (LE, $50.00) is warmer. Givenchy Brun Vintage (105) (P, $36.00) is lighter, brighter. Bobbi Brown Pink Rose (LE, $25.00) is lighter. Revlon Pink Truffle (P, $7.49) is sheerer, glossier. MAC Gem of Roses (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery, lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Anastasia Vintage Liquid Lipstick

Anastasia Vintage Liquid Lipstick
Anastasia Vintage Liquid Lipstick

Anastasia Vintage Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “royal purple.” It’s a medium-dark, eggplant purple with warm pink undertones and a matte finish. Colour Pop Grind (P, $5.00) is brighter, purpler. Kat Von D L.U.V. (P, $19.00) is lighter, pinker. Kat Von D L.U.V. (P, $21.00) is lighter. MAC Punk Couture (LE, $16.00) is darker, less matte. MAC RiRi Boy (LE, $16.00) is lighter. MAC Up the Amp (P, $16.00) is lighter. MAC Heroine (P, $16.00) is brighter, less matte. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

It had mostly opaque color coverage, though it isn’t fully pigmented and there’s a sheerness to it, so if you have naturally redder lips, I’d expect this to look less purple on. It had an almost two-tone aspect to it, as parts of it looked pinker and other parts looked purpler, and this was especially noticeable along the edges. The texture is thin, watery initially but dries down and adheres to the lips. You’ll want to be careful while waiting for it to dry down, as it gets tackier and tackier while it sets, so if you touch your lips together while it is drying, you’ll lift the color off in sections. Once dry, it’s nearly transfer-proof for me, and I don’t have any issues drinking coffee with this on. It will make it through most of a meal, but it will depend on how much oil is in your meal. On me, the color wears for six hours, but it is moderately drying and gets uncomfortable to wear after three hours of wear for me.

Bite Beauty #002 Creme Deluxe Lipstick

Bite Beauty Shade 002 Lip Lab Limited Release Creme Deluxe Lipstick
Bite Beauty Shade 002 Lip Lab Limited Release Creme Deluxe Lipstick

Bite Beauty #002 Lip Lab Limited Release Creme Deluxe Lipstick ($36.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “Japanese Eggplant, a perfectly balanced purple/pink.” It’s a medium-dark, pink-berry with cool undertones and a satin finish. MAC Ultramarine Pink (LE, $30.00) is slightly brighter. Estee Lauder Reckless (P, $30.00) is pinker. MAC Catharina (P, $23.00) is brighter. Urban Decay Ladyflower (LE, $22.00) is lighter. Givenchy Croisiere Fuchsia (309) (LE, $36.00) is lighter, cooler-toned. Maybelline Hot Plum (P, $7.49) is brighter, cooler-toned. Kat Von D Bauhau5 (P, $19.00) is totally matte but very comparable in color. MAC Flat Out Fabulous (P, $16.00) also has a very matte finish with similarity in color (a little brighter). See comparison swatches / view dupes.

I’m happy to report that this month’s release is much, much better compared to January’s. It had fairly opaque color coverage that applied evenly and smoothly. The consistency was lightly creamy and medium-thick; the formula felt less creamy than their Luminous Creme formula, so it had less slip overall in comparison. It was lightly hydrating, but the Luminous Creme formula has been more hydrating in my experience (note, I’ve had much more experience with the Luminous Creme and this is only the second shade I’ve tried in this formula). This shade wore well for five and a half hours.
