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. Maybelline Wickedly White (DC, $7.49) is cooler (95% similar). Bite Beauty #058 (P, $18.00) is cooler (95% similar). Anastasia Primary #1 (Vol. 1) (PiP, ) is cooler (95% similar). Sephora In the Clouds (43) (P, $8.00) is more muted (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. It had rich, opaque color payoff that applied smoothly and evenly without tugging on the lips. The texture felt velvety and comfortable tow ear on the lips but did not slip around.

Bite Beauty Pink Lady Matte Creme Lip Crayon ($24.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark fuchsia with cool, blue 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!

Nice Springy Colors! Your ombre’ lip is making me think of a sunset. It’s been so awfully gloomy..I am ready for some sun here!

Blood orange is definitely one of my more wearable orange lip colours. I do not wear it often because it isn’t a favourite, but it’s about as close as I can get and still look human.

I think the white pencil would be excellent for doing a change-up on an existing listick and for layering. I like what you did with the ombre lip.

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!

I would think about how likely you are to take the time to transform! For some, it’s fun and something they’d take the time, but others may find they’d rather one-and-done kind of product.

Fixed!

Well, it’s definitely an interesting concept, this Blanc shade for creating ombreed lips. Shame that it’s weartime is so poor compared to the other ones. And I love that look you did using ALL 3, that is so cool and fun looking!

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!

It really good working any liquid lipstick. The colour is hard to get 100% white on it’s own like Blanc. But I feel like white is hard to get opaque because it is a heavy pigment to work with and it’s lighter than anything else. 😆

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.

I think the white one looks like a lot of funto play with. I really like the ombre lips. I could never do that, well, I could but the effect would be lost in a few minutes as rub my lips against each other so much.
I am happy to say I have dupes for the other two.

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.

Pink Lady is my kind of color, and I don’t have dupes, so it’s going on my wish list. Blood Orange is very pretty, too. I love the ombre look you did, Christine!

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 love the idea of the Beauty Blanc, and I really like the custom mix you made with it and Blood Orange. I just wish the wear time was a little better, although 5 hours still isn’t horrible. Did it perform the same with other brand lipsticks?

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.
