Mauve Marzipan

Bite Beauty Mauve Marzipan Crystal Crème Shimmer Lip CrayonBite Beauty Mauve Marzipan Crystal Crème Shimmer Lip Crayon ($24.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a deeper, muted plum with subtle, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The shimmer in this shade seemed finer overall, which gave the finish a smoother appearance and a slightly glossier finish in comparison to the other shades in the range (but still more “matte metallic” than luminous or glossy). It had semi-opaque pigmentation that was buildable to mostly opaque coverage with a second layer. The pencil felt lightweight, emollient without being slippery, and comfortable to work with across my lips. It stayed on nicely for five hours 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.

Cocoa Crush

Bite Beauty Cocoa Crush Crystal Crème Shimmer Lip CrayonBite Beauty Cocoa Crush Crystal Crème Shimmer Lip Crayon ($24.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a muted, medium brown with strong, warm undertones and a lot of golden shimmer and finer sparkle. Applied, it looked deeper–more chocolaty brown than golden brown. I suspect part of that was due to the shimmer getting spread out and more of the base color coming through, along with it having more semi-opaque pigmentation and allowing my natural color to influence the finished effect. The texture was lightweight, velvety without being slippery, and easy to maneuver across my lips for fairly even coverage. I did find there was some emphasis of my natural lip texture with the amount of shimmer in the formula, though. On me, it wore well for four and a half hours and was lightly moisturizing while worn.

Candied Guava

Bite Beauty Candied Guava Crystal Crème Shimmer Lip CrayonBite Beauty Candied Guava Crystal Crème Shimmer Lip Crayon ($24.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a medium-dark coral with warm undertones and flecks of gold micro-glitter. It had a more frosted finish, which emphasized my lip lines a little bit more, though from a normal distance it wasn’t noticeable. It had good color coverage, though it was shy of full coverage, and the color went on evenly without dragging on my lips. The texture was lightweight, thin but not clingy, and comfortable to wear for the five hours it lasted for. The formula felt neither drying nor hydrating over time.

You know you have way too much makeup when you see that you have at least 3 dupes of the first shade, 2 for the second! 😂
As for #3, I would much rather have EL Tiger Eye over Candied Guava because the EL one appears to be much smoother and less textured.
