Bite Beauty Confection/Marmalade Luminous Creme Lipstick DuoBite Beauty Confection/Marmalade Luminous Creme Lipstick Duo ($14.00 for 0.10 oz.) consists of a bright, pop of fuchsia pink paired with a warmer, medium orange. It’s another good set of shades that performs well and lives up to its claims! Bite’s Luminous Creme formula is very consistent for me, so I’m happy to see it is equally consistent in their mini duos.

Confection is a pop of medium pink with cool, blue undertones and a satin finish. There’s a slightly muted quality to the color, which makes it appear softer compared to its more neon cousins. The texture was light-medium in weight, creamy enough to glide on, but it wasn’t as emollient as other shades in the range, and I found it a little less hydrating overall but it was still somewhat moisturizing. This shade wore well for four and a half hours. Tom Ford Beauty Playgirl (P, $55.00) is glossier (95% similar). Wet 'n' Wild Nouveau Pink (P, $0.99) is darker (95% similar).

Marmalade is a bright, medium-dark orange with warm, red undertones and a natural sheen. It was intensely pigmented with a smooth, creamy consistency that was comfortable to wear and applied beautifully. The color wore well for five hours and was nicely hydrating over time.

So pretty (although I doubt I’d use Marmalade – just not a good shade for me). To be truthful, I had 2 of the Bite duos and while I loved the shades, they made the OCD side of me completely crazy…I mean how do you put them in shade order?! I know, I totally have issues and, yes, I gave them away to stop the madness! *wink*

Marmalade is awesomeness on you!!! And especially so with how you paired your eye look and the entire face look! Kind of how I was wearing my MAC Morange last summer, everything just clicks perfectly.

But Confection, while gorgeous on you, is one of those shades I almost never wear even though I do similar shades. Sometimes neon fuschia-pinks make me appear GREEN-ish?!? That’s why my Pink Pigeon goes neglected!

I kept looking at swatches of all of Bite’s lipstick duos, desperately hoping to find one where both colors would work well for me. It didn’t happen. =( Maybe next year…
