Bite Beauty Rose Luminous Creme Lipstick

Bite Rose Luminous Creme Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.13 oz.) is described as a “peachy pink.” Rose is a vibrant pink with a hint of coral, but it’s like a nearly-neon watermelon pink. The color coverage is opaque, and the finish is cream, so there is a slight shine to the end result.

It is pinker than MAC Full Speed, which looks more coral, and it has a little more oomph compared to Dolce & Gabbana Splendid. It’s remarkably similar to VS Be Mine, both in color and in texture. Wet ‘n’ Wild Hot Paris Pink is darker and more coral, as is Make Up For Ever #37.

Bite Beauty is all about better ingredients, so their Luminous Creme Lipstick touts resveratrol and food-grade ingredients (supposedly “healthy enough to eat”). The lipstick is also supposed to be long-lasting and moisturizing. The texture is creamy but on the thicker side, which helps yield better color payoff, but it is not as weightless as some other formulas (even when they have opaque color). With a bright shade like Rose, I had good wear for around four hours, but by the sixth hour, I was in desperate need of reapplication. I didn’t find the formula to be long-lasting on me–four hours is the average I get from the hundreds of lipsticks I’ve tried.

It was moisturizing while I wore it, and I didn’t feel an immediate need to slather my lips in lip balm post-wear, which is always a sign of a lipstick that actually imparts moisture while it is worn. The lipstick has a lot of slip, as the creaminess of the texture allows it to slide around for the first hour or so before it seems to settle into place. I could see this making some of the darker shades more prone to bleeding. There is a faint scent of lemons but no taste.

very orangy for a “rose” and I don’t like warm shades of makeup much– but very excited to see and read about bite beauty!!! thank you Temptalia!

AH! I was so excited to see this post! I’ve been looking at their products and thinking, “Should I?” for a couple months now. I just haven’t taken the plunge! 🙂 Do you think you’ll be reviewing any others?

I have at least a dozen things that I meant to review but never got too… It sucks for the stuff that was LE. I’m left thinking, “Okay… Well I bought that.” LOL

Oh man this looks absolutely gorgeous… I’d love to see more on these lipsticks and other Bite products. I’ve been super on-the-fence about this brand for a while.

Oh my what a lovely colour and finish. Guess I’ll be checking these out next at Sephora’s F&F. How did the lipstick seem in the tube, secure? I had to return some Tarte lipsticks the same week I bought them last Christmas bc they launched out of the tube when opened.

Please please please please do a review on all of BITE lipsticks!!!!!!! I sent you a email but it didn’t go through. I’ve been dying to try them, but there are no reviews on the full collection from anyone. I check temptalia every day in the morning, it would be greatly appreciated. I know your very busy so thank you if you are taking the time to read this,
