Cherry on Top

Bite Beauty Cherry on Top Crystal Crème Shimmer Lip Crayon ($24.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a medium red with neutral-to-cool undertones and flecks of red and silver sparkle. It had opaque pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without tugging on them during application. The lipstick had a lightweight feel and texture–thin but not clingy–so it adhered well but didn’t slide around while worn. It wore well for five and a half hours, left a faint stain behind, and was lightly hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$24.00/0.06 oz. - $400.00 Per Ounce

The new formula is supposed to offer shimmer and bold color that's "long-wearing" and "smooth-gliding." The majority of the shades have semi-opaque to opaque pigmentation in one stroke. The texture is typically smooth and velvety without feeling wet or particularly cream-like, but they don't drag as I used them for all-over color. They have more of a semi-matte to matte finish in terms of shine, but obviously they have quite a bit of shimmer ranging from fine shimmer to shimmer with slight to moderate sparkle. They did manage to keep everything feeling quite smooth, as I didn't notice the shimmer when I pressed my lips together. The formula was comfortable to wear and lasted between four and six hours on me. They had a slight, lemony scent with a very subtle, almost sweet taste (but I barely detected the taste).

They are inspired by the brand's Matte Creme Lip Crayons, which are creamy, highly-pigmented larger pencils that have more of a satin to semi-matte finish. In comparison, the Shimmer Lip Crayons have a similar glide and comfort going on my lips, but they have less creaminess and no satin sheen. They don't feel quite as hydrating as the Matte Creme Lip Crayons, and thus far, the Shimmer finish tends to wear slightly shorter in time.

Molten Chocolate

Bite Beauty Molten Chocolate Crystal Crème Shimmer Lip Crayon ($24.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark brown with subtle, warm rosy undertones and a muted gold shimmer finish. It looked more frosted–a little drier and more textured–compared to the other shades in the range. The pencil had enough slip that it glided across my lips without dragging, and the color distributed evenly across my lips but was more semi-opaque, buildable in coverage. This shade stayed on nicely for five hours and was neither drying nor hydrating on me.

Both of these are insanely beautiful. I’m usually not into darker browns, but I’d wear Molten Chocolate in a heartbeat. The cherry cola color is stunning and looks very wearable.

My word, these are sensational – love both shades, but especially Molten Chocolate. I have never purchased a lip crayon before, but I think I will now. These are just stunning.
