For this month’s limited color release, we get another quality release, even though I still would love to see a little more risk-taking or originality in the limited releases. The consistency was moderately creamy with some slip and easily glided across lips without tugging, but it didn’t feel or look heavy on nor did I get any feathering or bleeding around the edges while wearing it. The formula was comfortable and lightly hydrating, while the color had mostly opaque coverage (you could still see my lip freckle slightly) and helped lips look a little smoother. It lasted for over six hours, and it left behind a stain.

I’m not sure πŸ™ I want to say no… it is exclusive to Sephora but am not sure if Sephora carries it overseas or not.

I looked for dupes I liked and Nars Velvet Matt pencil in Dragon Girl is one I like. The Maybelline dupe isn’t pink enough for me, despite the good price. I think it’s great you can look for dupes here, it’s very useful! I tried looking at the Tom Ford and Guerlain dupes but they’re not easily available. Oh well x

I completely forgot about it this month! I was finding myself disappointed in the ones I had for the cost. So, I scratched it from my “to do” list. This is really pretty though. I have mind control though and it is less expensive. Otherwise, I would be bummed if it was sold out or be trying to snag it. But, I’m passing. Nice eye look. Are these new CP shadows?

I honestly feel like there is less and less fanfare for them as they release.

They are! I don’t really have any info on them, trying to get it though.

A really gorgeous, classic cherry red in a great formula, but very dupe-able. I feel that for a LE monthly release, there should be more unique colors. I mean why have a custom lip lab when you go to DS and get colors like this? BITE is really missing a big opportunity here to be bold and creative…

This was the first time I succeeded in picking up the Limited Release lipstick, & I’m so glad I did! It’s such a beautiful red, & it wears so comfortably.

I was surprised to see that this month’s & last month’s shades actually stuck around for a couple days… Maybe Bite wisened up & started making a bigger batch?

I bought this and love it. It’s always interesting to see your pics with products I have (or do) purchase. Since our coloring is different, the lipstick looks very different on you than it does on me. On you, this lipstick pulls cool but on me, it pulls warm (and I’m fair/light neutral undertones). I have to say, I love it on both of us!

I’m surprised it goes warm on you! I feel like normally it would pull warmer against my tones, but maybe it’s the contrast?

Mine actually looks warm in the tube. Although I have to say I was as surprised to see it on you and it clearly pulls cool! Maybe mine had some of the orange left in the batch from the last LE – LOL! Still, I really am happy with it. If I think about it, next time I wear it (probably will be a while), I’ll grab a pic and post it under “Looks”.

Oh, pretty! I do love red lipsticks.
We don’t have Bite here, but I di have Cherry Pop, and loads of other good reds, so I suppose I’m set. I would love to try all of the Besame ones though.

Pretty but not for me. Any info you can share about the Colourpop eye shadows you’re wearing here? It’s a beautiful look and they are new, coming-soon shades, I believe?

I have to say this is the first monthly Bite Beauty lipstick I’ve liked. Not a fan of their color selection. I guess in general a lot of colors don’t look good on porcelain skin.

Another blogger had photos of herself wearing the new Louboutin $90 lipsticks in both the satin and the voile finishes, and it might be my poor memory, but I’d swear this is a (far cheaper) dead ringer for one of the ones I saw on her! This is not my color (I’m strictly a MLBB-wearer), but it looks gorgeous on you.

I have 4 of these so far and I’m glad I gave this one a miss. It’s a pretty mainstream colour and a little cool for me. I love their formula but I have found so many of the colours to be very take-it-or-leave-it. I really hope they pull out something intensely autumny for October. I’d love to see a muddy orange-brown, a perfect 90s-Scully-rosy brown, or another very dark, vampy, Halloween-y colour along the lines of 001 – maybe a navy blue or black-red.

I got this as a 250 pt reward. Idk if its the same shade or what but its called “mimosa” instead. Its a pretty classic cherry red like you described but i dont know if they name them differently in other countries.

Can you do a review on it? Idk if its sold in a bigger size but if you have 250 points on you you can get it. My bf thought it was sexy. May be a teeny bit warmer than this one but ive been told its a classic red as well.
