Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayon
Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayon

Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayon ($24.00 for 0.05 oz.) is supposed to be “long-wearing,” hydrating, and pigmented. It’s one of my favorite formulas for really pigmented, long-wearing, comfortable color that is more matte, though I wouldn’t describe them as a true or flat matte. There is a slight shine to them that wears down within an hour or so of wear (as you’d expect for most semi-matte to satin finish lipsticks). They come in a twist-up, large pencil format that makes it fairly easy to get precise edges and even coverage. For spring, they’ve brought back one previously limited edition shade (Blood Orange) and created five new shades to join the permanent range. The formula has a slightly herbal, lemony scent but no discernible taste to me.

Bite Beauty Blanc Matte Creme Lip Crayon ($24.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a bright, medium white with a satin finish. This shade shares the same formulas as the other shades, but the color itself (white) is marketed to mix with other shades to create customized color (although per the product listing, the founder also says “on its own creates an on-trend look for lips”). To test its overall quality (longevity, how it wears, application, etc.), I wore it on its own, but I have also played and tried it layered with other shades in the collection as well as with non-Bite Beauty products. It doesn’t perform as well as other shades, as it is a little thicker and doesn’t go on as evenly, though it is fairly pigmented and comfortable to wear/apply. The longevity was shorter than most shades in the range, but it is worth noting most shades in Bite’s range are darker/richer shades that typically would wear longer. When I paired it with Blood Orange, for example, it shortened the wear of Blood Orange on its own by an hour and a half (equal parts of both shades). When I only dabbed it on the center of the lips, I didn’t notice any difference in longevity. MAC Frosting (P, $19.00) is cooler (95% similar). KVD Beauty White Out (P, $19.00) is cooler (95% similar). Maybelline Wickedly White (DC, $7.49) is cooler (95% similar). Bite Beauty #058 (P, $18.00) is cooler (95% similar).

Bite Beauty Blood Orange Matte Creme Lip Crayon ($24.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a bright, medium coral-red with warm undertones and a satin finish.

That ombre lip is stunning! I think I might love blanc to lighten up some of my favorite colors to bring them into spring/summer. It looks like it blended seamlessly with blood orange!

Hi Christine,

I’ve been waiting with such excitement to see your reviews on these – especially blanc! I’m wondering what your opinion is on the usefulness of blanc? To me it seems like a really exciting idea, buy one new lipstick and be able to transform all your other lipsticks, do you think it’s worthwhile? Or would you be more likely to simply buy new lipsticks in other shades rather than mess about transforming ones you already have?

Tiny other little note, at the start of the pink lady review you’ve listed it as blanc.

Thanks again!

It’s getting harder and harder to ignore BLANC. It’s just so hard to find a good white lipstick and the only one I own is Drug Lord from Jeffree Star (which is being made permanent as well).

I also find I funny that all the Bite Beauty products I’m gravitating to are unusual. lol

Love the shade Blood Orange turns into. Perfect vibrant coral pink!

I think when you’re a makeup junkie it’s inevitable that you will get bored with the usual makeup and start looking for the rare and unusual.

On it’s own, I don’t like Blanc, looks like someone put liquid paper over my lips, but I love the ombre looks that you created with it. Or even mix it with a pink to get some Panetone colors. I think it would be a fun one to play with, like BITE Opal.

TBH I don’t know if I’m really sold on any of these! I have them all in my Sephora cart ready to go… But a dupe for Blood Orange (which didn’t get the A+ it once did) is Peche? And Framboise as a dupe for Pink Lady? I have both of those from the first release, so I’ll likely pass

I can’t imagine leaving the house wearing just that white shade, but I think it’s a cool concept. I wonder if a white eyeliner would give the same effect.
