Bite Beauty Rewind Lip Crayon Set

Bite Beauty Rewind Lip Crayon SetBite Beauty Rewind Lip Crayon Set ($25.00 for 0.12 oz.) includes four travel-sized, twist-up lip colors housed in a red tin. I really liked Bite’s set last year, and I think this year’s is also good and works well as a stocking stuffer or more affordable gift to give. Full-sized pencils are 0.05 oz. each, and each of these is 0.031 oz., which makes the set worth $59.52. The Matte Creme Lip Crayon formula tends to be smooth and velvety in texture with good pigmentation, long- and comfortable wear. The formula has a lemony, slightly herbal, scent but no discernible taste.

Aubergine is described as an “eggplant.” It’s a medium-dark, berry-plum with hints of red and a cooler undertone paired with a satin finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a creamy, smooth consistency that was easy to apply and didn’t tug at the lip. The color wore well for six hours and was lightly hydrating over time. This shade is part of the permanent range. The version in the set was actually more pigmented and less glossy, which resulted in a more muted colro overall, though they are similar. Estee Lauder Insolent Plum (P, $32.00) is glossier (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Exotica (P, $55.00) is warmer (95% similar).

Torte is described as a “brown-toned rose.” It’s a soft, medium-dark rosy pink with warm undertones and a satin finish.

Cafe is described as a “peachy-brown nude.” It’s a light-medium, pinky-peach with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation with a lightly creamy consistency that applied without dragging. The formula seemed less forgiving than the other three, and it made my lips look drier as the lines were more apparent. I had some noticeable color settle into lip lines after two and a half hours orf wear, though the color wore fairly well for four hours in total. NARS Rosecliff (DC, $28.00) is glossier (95% similar). Shiseido Desert Quartz (RD124) (DC, $28.00) is lighter (95% similar). Bite Beauty Sable (DC, $24.00) is warmer (90% similar).

Coulis is described as a “raspberry red.” It’s a medium-dark, neutral-to-cool toned red with a satin finish. It had semi-opaque coverage–there was a little bit of my lip freckle still coming through–but the coverage was even. This shade lasted for six hours and left behind a stain, and it was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Mind Control (LE, $20.00) is darker, brighter (95% similar). Hourglass Innovator (P, $32.00) is glossier (95% similar). Colour Pop Blood (LE, $6.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). NARS Majella (P, $25.00) is warmer (95% similar).

Every shade looks so good! I’m glad none of them are too dark or too pale. I’m just not a big fan of matte shades….which seemed to be the trend this year.

It’s under “Eye Products” because Makeup Palettes is a sub-category in there (that’s just where it went 8 years ago).

This might be something I buy an split as stocking stuffers for my mom and sister. My mom would love the neutral colors and I know my sister would enjoy the brights.

I’ll probably get this. I keep last year’s set in my purse because the tin is perfectly compact, and I always know I’ll have a shade that works with whatever I’m wearing. I love that Bite does these little sets each year to allow us to sample several products at a reduced price.

These are all so easily wearable shades. Pretty universally flattering colors, with the possible exception of Cafe, as that one is quite light.
If I had to pick between this one and that super cool atomic warhead Nars Abnormal Female one, I’d be lost! Because this one seems to be better quality overall, but that other one has THAT case and Dragon Girl!

Until I see the next lippie I can’t resist LOL ! We’ll see…. I’ve collected a big collection in almost every color I like, so I’m hoping to make a dent in my stash before I buy another one. Lippies last a while, but I’m trying to use up my glosses before they go bad

What a nice set of lip crayons. We don’t have Bite here, if we had I’d get this little collection for sure. Pretty wearable colours.

I snatched this set a few weeks ago, but haven’t worn all the colors yet. They look so different against my skin tone! I’m very pale so Aubergine is like a deep plum purple on me, and I find Torte and Cafe hard to pull off, the lighter color and satin matte finish really makes the dryness in my lips stand out 🙁

Plum colours always look so pretty on you.
I’ve always been interested in Bite Beauty but as far as I know, they aren’t sold in the UK 🙁

You can get them at Rose’s Beauty Store ( http://www.rosesbeautystore.com/product/laura-geller-so-scumptious-volume-3-set-light-2-2-2/ ), but they’re sold out! I did a big purchase at Sephora online last night, there were a few things I wanted that I couldn’t get here so I bit the bullet and ordered. Yes you have to pay shipping and customs charges ?, but I don’t think I’ll do shopping there again until next year so I figured it was worth it for me. I’ve also ordered from Beautylish.com which has free shipping to the UK for purchases over $25 and has a $10 off offer for new customers (it only has a limited selection of brands though).

Other good places in the UK to get US makeup stuff are Guru Makeup Emporium (www.gurumakeupemporium.com), Love Makeup (https://www.love-makeup.co.uk/), and sometimes Amazon and eBay altho obvs sometimes it’s more of a risk with the last two xx

Torte is such a perfect, rosy pink. Too bad it’s limited edition! 🙁 This set is really great, I love that they decided to do the matte lip crayons instead of the high pigment lip pencils.

I purchased this set over the weekend and so far I have worn Cafe and Torte mixed together (Cafe as the center lip “highlight”). I absolutely love Bite Beauty lipsticks and this is the first of the matte pencils that I have tried. I absolutely loved them and found them to be very comfortable on the lips. I am debating purchasing a second for myself since I loved the consistency and the shades I used so far 🙂 I also love the price tag; you can get 4 that will last quite a while for a steal!

I got this set last week and I just put my review up today. Our assessments are pretty similar. My least favorite was also Café but I still really like it. It had the least moisture and enhanced my flaws the most. Due to my dark lip color I had to use two layers for opaque color and it skews much pinker on me!

How does this compare to last years Bite set? I have that one from 2014, and I love them- I would hate to pass up such a good deal, but I don’t need dupes.

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
