Bite Beauty Cortado/Latte Luminous Creme Lipstick Duo

Bite Beauty Cortado/Latte Luminous Creme Lipstick Duo ($14.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a dual-ended lipstick, so there is a lipstick shade on each side. This duo features a warm, rosy plum and a lighter, rosy brown. The duo is sold out online, though you may be able to find it in store still. Definitely making a mental note to cave on these earlier in the season for next holiday.

Cortado is a muted, medium rosy plum with warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-opaque color coverage with a lightly creamy, lightweight consistency that applied well without feeling heavy or sliding around. It wore well for four hours on me and was nicely hydrating. Burberry Dark Rosewood (P, $34.00) is darker (95% similar). Chanel Rose Violine (P, $37.00) is warmer, glossier (95% similar). MAC Finally Free (LE, $19.50) is glossier (90% similar). Maybelline Touch of Spice (P, $7.99) is warmer, less glossy (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Party Alice (P, $28.00) is darker (90% similar). Shiseido Red Queen (RD716) (DC, $28.00) is warmer (95% similar). Shiseido Rose Crush (RD715) (DC, $28.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Hourglass Activist (P, $32.00) is cooler (90% similar). Burberry Tea Rose (277) (P, $34.00) is warmer, glossier (90% similar). Tarte Glaze (LE, $24.00) is warmer (90% similar). Cle de Peau China Doll (P, $65.00) is cooler, glossier (90% similar). Bite Beauty Zin (DC, $24.00) is darker, brighter (90% similar). Tarte Set Sail (P, $21.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Cary (P, $36.00) is darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Belle (LE, $7.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Guerlain Merveilleux Rose (867) (DC, $58.00) is lighter (90% similar). Bite Beauty Rosewood (DC, $28.00) is warmer (90% similar). Clinique Black Honey (PiP, $15.00) is less pigmented, cooler (90% similar). Dior Ultra Appeal (587) (P, $37.00) is less shimmery, lighter, warmer (85% similar). Chanel Ce Soir (DC, $34.00) is warmer (85% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Latte is a muted, light-medium rosy peach-brown with warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that allowed the natural lip color to still come through. The texture was creamy, comfortable without being too slippery or thick. It lasted for four hours and was hydrating over time. Estee Lauder Naked Desire (P, $32.00) is darker (95% similar). Chanel Nude (P, $37.00) is cooler, glossier (95% similar). MAC Fresh Brew (P, $19.50) is less pigmented, cooler (95% similar). Laura Mercier Cinnful (P, $25.00) is darker, glossier (90% similar). NARS Barbara (P, $34.00) is lighter (90% similar). L'Oreal Glossy Fawn (P, $9.99) is warmer (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Joan (LE, $36.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Chanel Adrienne (402) (P, $37.00) is lighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Peppermint (LE, $6.00) is brighter (90% similar). Makeup Geek Waltz (LE, $12.00) is darker, less glossy (90% similar). Hourglass Peacemaker (P, $32.00) is cooler (90% similar). Estee Lauder Bare Instinct (P, $32.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Sunset Pearl (LE, $25.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Hourglass Futurist (P, $32.00) is cooler (95% similar). NARS Rosecliff (P, $26.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (85% similar). Hourglass Idealist (P, $32.00) is cooler (85% similar). Estee Lauder Nude Cult (P, $32.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Bite Beauty Amaretto (P, $24.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC It's Really Me (LE, $20.00) is lighter (85% similar).

This was the only one that was sold out at my Sephora… and the only one I was truly looking for! I ended up getting Marmalade/Confection as a consolation. 😛

I love the warm tones in these – they both look beautiful on you! I need to try more neutral shades from Bite – I just looked and most of the ones I have are bold berry shades and/or cool toned. I’m definitely going to take a look at these!

Cortado is so pretty! I’m just going to get them all next year too! I found The Holly/ Tannin and Pomegante/Palamino duos in store near me over the weekend. Even better,- they are now $10 each! But, I didn’t see this one 🙁

Oh, I am truly wanting this duo! I may need to go check local Sephoras around here! Cortado is beautiful, but I do have 2 easy dupes, but Latte looks like a super easy to wear nude even for my NC37-40 complexion! I hope I find it!

I was able to get the duo lipstick Fig/Date at Sephora as a VIB rouge exclusive offer. I would have loved to have tried this one. I loved the colors of Fig/Date, but unfortunately Bite’s lipsticks tend to be a little too soft and Date broke after only a few uses. I was so disappointed. I even blended the two colors together. They pair very nicely on my lips. Still, I would definitely like to try this color if it ever becomes available again.

I just bought this in my Sephora after reading this! It was the last one at the checkout line. I was hesitant because I think everything looks great on your medium skin tone, Christine (I am exponentially more pale), but I am so glad I did. Good way to expand into nudes which is not my comfort zone.

Thank you for posting these (and the sneak peak swatches awhile ago), Christine! I was able to grab the last Cortado/Latte at my Sephora and I’m so glad I did – they’re perfect shades on me!

I like both of these. It’s OK that they are sold out bc I have too many lipsticks as it is. My lips are so dry bc of medications that I usually use Clinique balm anyway.
Good review and, as always, both look great on you.

I think this duo is my favorite. So pretty for everyday easy wear. I really like confection/marmalade too, they’re fun brights. Next year I hope they make one of the duos with a purple!
