Bite Beauty Cava & Sugarcane Power Move Creamy Matte Lip Crayons Reviews & Swatches

Cava

Bite Beauty Cava Power Move Creamy Matte Lip Crayon ($24.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a light mauve with muted, slightly warmer undertones and a cream finish. It had a smooth, creamy texture that glided easily across my lips, but there was a bit of separation along my deeper lip lines–thankfully, it wasn’t enough to be noticeable in person until the last hour of wear. The lip crayon yielded opaque coverage in one stroke, which lasted well for four and a half hours and felt hydrating while worn.

The reformulation appeared slightly warmer and less lilac.

Formula Overview

$24.00/0.05 oz. - $480.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "bold, one-swipe color" paired with a "comfortable, creamy-matte finish" that is hydrating. The pencil includes a built-in sharpener as well. There's a lightly sweetened, herbal lemon scent but no discernible taste (similar to past Bite lip products). The texture felt impossibly creamy when swatched--almost like it was melting--and definitely "buttery" was the descriptor that came to mind, but the impressive part was that it did not feel like it melted on my lips.

I was concerned that the product would be too soft and too readily applied to lips, but instead, it just skated on with rich coverage delivered in a single stroke. I felt like I didn't even have to apply a full layer across my lips (as the pencil tip doesn't cover an entire lip area) as there was enough pigmentation to cover my lips by pressing and gently rubbing them together.

As I swatched and applied each shade, I found that they were particularly flattering on as they went on smoothly, didn't emphasize lip lines or lip texture, and had even coverage. They were comfortable to wear with moderate slip, though I didn't personally experience the product feathering or bleeding on me (but keep in mind, I'm not prone to either). They lasted between four and six hours with deeper shades lasting longer and having subtle stains left behind. The formula felt lightly to moderately hydrating over time.

Sugarcane

Bite Beauty Sugarcane Power Move Creamy Matte Lip Crayon ($24.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a light-medium pink with strong, warm undertones and a cream finish. The pigmentation was opaque in one stroke and delivered an even, smooth lay down of product that didn’t emphasize my lip texture.

The consistency was lightweight, creamy without being too emollient, and comfortable to wear as it wasn’t prone to sliding around. It stayed on nicely for four and a half hours and felt moisturizing over time.

The new version seemed slightly darker, warmer.

This is a case of money saved since I do not believe that either of these 2 shades would look well on me personally. Cava would make me look like a cadaver!

I like this version of Cava, the lesser amount of lilac makes it more wearable I think. I just have no idea if it would look good on me or make me look corpse like.
