Updated (12:58PM PST 7/6): I just received a release date of July 7th Sephora!

Bite’s unique matte creme formula containing a mix of pigments and powders and Japanese silica leaves lips with a velvet, soft-focus finish. Infused with Blueberry and Cranberry seed oils, this antioxidant packed formula boasts highly pigmented, moisturizing wearable color. These longwearing, dramatic, and regal hues are made with organic fruit butters for a creamy and lush, never drying, matte wash of bold berry colour.

Sephora Colorful Eyeshadow Palettes ($32.00 for 0.398 oz.) came out in two varieties, Overcast Filter and Sunbleached Filter, both inspired by the filters so many of us use when posting to social media these days. Here are some swatches to check out while I work on testing them!
If it wasn’t apparent by the abundance of sneak peeks, but we are in the throes of fall color collections and releases. July you say? Well, they come a little earlier everywhere and maybe by 2020, we’ll be looking at fall in April The best thing I can do for you is providing early swatches while I work on the testing and writing portion of the review process. (Testing takes the longest, followed by finding dupes, in case you were curious.) For total clarity, I purchased the Becca and Tarte palettes, while bareMinerals sent theirs as a press sample.
As usual, this post is mostly to provide dupes for those who missed out or didn’t want to shell out the $36 price tag for July’s shade of the month from Bite. (And on the remote possibility that they ever repromote these monthly releases.) It had very nearly opaque color coverage that applied without dragging and went on evenly. The texture was lightly creamy, not too thick or too thin, and sat well on the lips while worn. There was a strong, pink-red stain left behind. It was comfortable to wear as it was lightly hydrating over time, and the color wore well for six hours on me. The consistency is thinner than the Luminous Creme formula, and this particular shade had less sheen as well. I find the Luminous Creme formula to be more hydrating overall.
