Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayon

Bite Beauty Pastille Matte Creme Lip Crayon ($24.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy mauve with neutral undertones and a semi-matte finish. It was one of the more matte shades in the six for spring shades. It had mostly opaque color payoff with a lightly velvety consistency that applied evenly and didn’t tug on the lips during application. The color wore well for four and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. Maybelline Almond Rose (P, $7.99) is warmer (95% similar).

Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayon ($24.00 for 0.05 oz.) is supposed to be “long-wearing,” hydrating, and pigmented. It’s one of my favorite formulas for really pigmented, long-wearing, comfortable color that is more matte, though I wouldn’t describe them as a true or flat matte. There is a slight shine to them that wears down within an hour or so of wear (as you’d expect for most semi-matte to satin finish lipsticks). They come in a twist-up, large pencil format that makes it fairly easy to get precise edges and even coverage. For spring, they’ve brought back one previously limited edition shade (Blood Orange) and created five new shades to join the permanent range. The formula has a slightly herbal, lemony scent but no discernible taste to me.

Pastille will be mine. I swear all this week,my eyes have been drawn to that lippie every time you have had it on! It’s on my list to use with my 10% code . I think Rosehip needs added too. Red Velvet is gorgeous as well. OMG. I have a lipstick problem.

Oh great. I usually have a hard time pulling off mauvey pinks, so my collection sorely lacking this color, but Pastille looks perfect. But it’s $24 for only .05 oz, whereas the other BITE lipsticks are the same price for .09 oz (for high pigment lip pencils) and .15 oz (for lipsticks). Why, oh why ?? I’m hoping it’s because this has 2-3x the pigment, so I can use less, right? Gee, I might actually finish one of these. Well, I’m doing a swatch-a-thon tomorrow at the local stores, so if it swatches well against my skintone, I will grab

All three are really gorgeous, wearable shades! Now, though, comes my internal debate: Pastille vs Anna. Good grief, but they are so incredibly similar to one another! Except that Pastille appears more matte? This won’t be an easy choice at all, but I also would not buy both because, yeah, they’re just much too similar to justify that.

Like Nicole, I keep looking at Pastille. I just don’t know how it would translate on me. My lips, naturally, are a pinky-mauve… so this could be a MLBB or merely “somethings a bit off”. LOL I’m torn.

I fell in love with the Bite Beauty crayons a while ago, when I got the Rewind Set. Now I want all of them! Especially Pastille, that one looks like a fantastic option for everyday wear.

I love Pastille. I guess I have to go and try Anna to see how I'll look in this type of colour. I think I have tried this kind of shade in the past and not liked it, but Pastille loooks so GOOD!
I also really like the reds, I do have dupes for Red Velvet, but not for Rosehip and it's so juice-y and lovely! I'll have to check dupes for it, I know I've been holding Annabella, but I think I'll try 714 as UD is less expensive.
Have I ever told you how much I love the lists of dupes?

I actually just tried Pastille at Sephora yesterday. I really liked the formula, but the color looked way different on me from how it does on you. I’m an NW20 and Pastille looked darker and more purple (with cool/blue undertones) on me. I wasn’t in love with it enough to justify buying it right now, though I’d definitely like to get one of the crayons in the future.

The twist-up type of products like this usually contain about this amount (it is consistent with other brands with this type of packaging), but if you want “max value” then avoid this type of packaging, always, for any and all brands. Similarly, avoid jumbo lip pencils.

I love the color of Nars Dragon Girl, but would like a paraben-free, more natural lipstick brand and have heard good things about Bite Beauty. Is Red Velvet or Rosehip closer to Dragon Girl?
