Bite Beauty Bordeaux Cashmere Lip CreamBite Beauty Bordeaux Cashmere Lip Cream ($25.00 for 0.25 fl. oz.) is described as a “burgundy.” It’s a deepened, cool-toned burgundy with a subtle reddish tint mixed with purple. It had a satin-matte finish. MAC Talk That Talk (LE, $16.00) is more matte, slightly warmer. MAC Heart Hangover (LE, $18.00) is a touch darker. MAC Dramatic Encounter (LE, $16.00) is darker. MAC Boyfriend Stealer (LE, $16.00) is sheerer. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Black Dahlia (P, $18.00) is darker, warmer. See comparison swatches.

The Cashmere Lip Cream formula is supposed have rich pigmentation, feel lightweight, and yield a matte finish. For all those who eschew typical spring lip colors, here’s a review for you–a rich, vampy hue that’s intensely pigmented with full, opaque color coverage. The finish is more satin to natural for the first couple of hours of wear–it absolutely becomes matte at some point, but there was a noticeable sheen that powered on for longer than anticipated. To get a more matte finish right away, apply a lot less with a lip brush, blot, then apply a little more, then blot again. Bordeaux is very long-wearing, and it held strong for over six hours and still made it fairly intact through a meal. After six hours or so, it’s slightly faded but hardly noticeable by any one else. It was lightly hydrating over time, and the consistency was light-to-medium-weight, was comfortable to wear (particularly in the first four hours, where it is a little creamier), and applied evenly. I didn’t have any issues with the color feathering or bleeding. There is a slight scent to it that I can’t quite place–a little herbal-y? perhaps that’s subtle and I can only somewhat catch a whiff of it when I smell the applicator.

Fabulous it isssss n u r looking smoking hot in this πŸ™‚
it should be theeeee burgundy m looking for ( I guess sooo )

can u check dear .. the makeup look says
On lips … lancome

Wow, thatΒ΄s a gorgeous color! ItΒ΄s such a shame that the brand isnΒ΄t available in Europe… I keep my fingers crossed that they will make it to us in the future πŸ™‚

It definitely gets matte as it wears on, but it takes a couple of hours! With these types of products, I usually apply and wait 20-30 minutes (or less, depending on how fast it dries down!) to make sure it “sets” in a sense… but nope, still noticeably shiny!

WOW. Just wow. Too bad we don’t have Bite Beauty in Spain because all their lip formulas seem to get raves everywhere. This shade looks particularly stunning, vampy but still wearable.

Oh, that is a fantastic colour! I think I must do my very best to get me one. I see so much I really like and even love, but rarely if ever do my heart skip a beat from seeing a lip colour. This just happened!
You looked stunning as always.

This is gorgeous on you, Christine. As much as i want to love Bite lip products (being a Canadian, i want to support a home made brand), i purchased one of the limited edition matt crayons and i need to return it. As lovely as the colour (and texture) of the matt crayon is, the lipstick colour turned that dreadful fusha (that some lipsticks do).
The bordeaux colour is gorgeous and is right up my alley. I would certainly give this formulation a try if it doesn’t turn that horrible bright pink. How did it wear (as far as colour consistency?).
PS: Christine, in your make-up description (love your foundation and blush!), you list your lips as a Lancome product. I assume that’s just a mix-up?

Hi Helen,

Yes, it’s the full description of what I wore the day I took photos (I usually have a mix of blush and lip swatches), so it’s the lip color I have on (so I remember) for the blush photos.

I can’t really recall many, if any, shades changing colors on me!

Wow that’s some sexy lips. This colour is TDF! This is going to be jumping in my cart.

My experiences with Bite have been impressive. Wonderful brand.

The color is stunning on you! I was wondering how you would compare the wear time and comfort to the YSL Kiss and Blush product? I just purchased #5 in YSL and it is very nice and comfortable to wear and I normally don’t do that type of gloss/lipstick…I’m strictly a MAC prolongwear lipstick gal πŸ™‚
Thank you

Hey Gina,

This is a little creamier, so the texture is a bit different. I think they are about similar in terms of comfort – a shade like this will last longer than some of the lighter YSL shades but will be on par with the deeper shades. Do you mean the original PLWs or the actual PLW Lipsticks? The latter, I think you’ll be fine with this… but if it’s the old school formula, then these might be too creamy.

I bought mine during Sephora’s winter sale and haven’t touched it since. This has inspired me to start wearing it more. It’s such a lovely color with great formula!

Woah Baby, it’s beautiful too bad this isn’t the everyday color for you haha (I love bold colors, I just don’t like the attention it receives haha)

LOVE this color!!!! i’ve almost gotten this in the shade port on many occasions and have left it in the store because i think i have too many that might be similar, but now, i think they’ll both be going in my cart. how does this formula compare with the armani maestro formula? that is the only liquid lipstick that i’ve really liked.

Oh wow, this is beautiful! Such a pretty colour. These are the times that I wish I lived in the US and not in The Netherlands haha. (We don’t have a Sephora anymore unfortunately.)

I’m so glad Bite is finally getting buzzed about in the beauty community. I discovered them through work maybe last year or a little before that and thought “omg why is no one talking about the awesomeness?” and now it’s on Temptalia :’) lol. Beautiful color on your Christine. πŸ™‚

I discovered these a few months ago and I’ve loved the formula …. Is it weird that when I first tried it, I thought, “but what would Christine think?!” Hehehehe πŸ˜›

I bought Bordeaux first, and then quickly returned to Sephora to buy Port (a deep blue-based red) and Sherry (orangish-red)! Bite recently added more colors to the range too, so my collection may grow soon πŸ™‚

I was hoping for a more matte finish. I think darker colors in a matte finish look really stunning. But that aside, looks like a really good formula!

Oh this looks so beautiful… I’ve really liked the lipsticks I’ve tried thus far from Bite. Thinking I’ll have to pick this one up, given my love for deep reds.

Wow! Such beautiful, vampy goodness πŸ™‚ Perfect for those of us heading into autumn…except for the part where Bite Beauty doesn’t exist here πŸ˜› Still, until they do, inspiration is always welcome!

I love these type colors on you! I really need to check out some Bite lippies. I hear nothing but good things about them

I love this shade! I’m going to try to pick it up when Sephora has their sale this weekend. I’d love to see you review more lipsticks from Bite. I was surprised to see you only have three posts for their products (unless I’m searching incorrectly).

I forgot to add – I own the lip cashmere in Port and have had a lot of complements. I really does last longer than other lipsticks for me, and when it wears down it doesn’t look bad either. I do notice that not a lot of product comes out on the applicator, which seems a bit weird. I’m not sure if I’m the only one that noticed this or if I got a bad item – it still works fine though.
