GAH – I don’t have anything like this in my arsenal, and I love Bite’s lip products…. but their January lipstick was such a disappointment in quality!!

I might just “bite” the bullet (pun TOTALLY intended) and buy it anyway!

After the poor reviews on the January colors, I’m not buying any of these $36 LE Lip Lab colors without seeing reviews and swatches first, and by then, it will probably be sold out!

I’m so traumatized by my purchase of the previous one that I’m really hesitant about this one. I like the idea of the color but I don’t want to get another tube where the color is different (my color was brown, not remotely burgundy, no red tones at all) from the description and patchy to top it off. While this isn’t the most expensive lipstick of the higher end ones, for $30+ a pop, you can’t send out badly formulated lipsticks.

I feel like after your review of the first shade I can’t trust this shade to perform $36 worth. Such a pity too. This shade also really appeals to me.

I looove that color!Perfect for Feb. and Feb is my Birthday month,so that give me some rational to spoil myself a little more. I would be setting my alarm to get that right now if the last had a good review. But given the jan. review, I have to restrain!

I’m going to try and get this & that’s probably it for this line! It’s my birthday in a few weeks… And I think this shade will be nice. Hopefully it performs better than January’s!

I couldn’t agree more with everyone else! I love this color and Bite but for an additional $12 and a sub-par formula, I’m not about to stalk this on Sephora to make sure I get one. I wonder if they check out their reviews on websites.

The first one sold out so quickly and it looks like this one is still available (granted it was only released today) – I wonder if people are more wary regarding the formula?

This color is HG for me. I hope when you review that you’ll post some dupes for it. The reviews for last month’s release are terrible and I don’t want to spend $36 for something subpar. Hope you’re having a good week.

I didn’t have the experience alot of other people did with 001. Mine goes on smoothly and is opaque. No patchiness and was hydrating. It’s also a beautiful deep burgundy shade. No brown. I just ordered 002 I can’t wait to see what they have planned for 003!

I hated on shade 001 so badly last month….but I still got this shade anyway. HAHA. True sign of a makeup addict. I’m really hoping the formula improved from last month, I would hate to return this one too..

Nope for the price I’ll stick with my Dior And YSL…! Good luck for those who want this it will prob be out of stock before most people even realize it’s on Sephora site for purchase..

There are reviews on Sephoras site from as far back as 1/9/15. How did they get it when it was just released today? I didn’t receive any email about it. I never hear a thing from sephora, always get my info on your site

Let’s put it this way: while we can hope that they learned from last month’s disaster, I suspect that this one was already produced by then. The fact that it’s another dark colour, therefore, does not inspire much confidence…

However! I do love Bite’s lipsticks, and I hope this one does turn out well.

“a perfectly balanced purple/pink” = my dream color! Dare I risk it due to the terrible review of the 1st/Jan release and my propensity to not return unsatisfactory products? I’m soooo tempted!

I ordered when it went live this morning. I don’t have any color like it in my stash…and if the performance is as poor as last month’s color, I can always return it. Wonder if it’s still available because they produced more this month…or if ladies are gun shy after last month’s reviews.

Sure hope it’s a winner though!!

I think it’s good this colour is still available on Sephora! The reviews from the January colour on there aren’t great, so maybe people read those & Temptalia. I’m really hoping the bad ratings & reviews helps Bite Beauty with the next 10 monthly releases…

Yes I did! I don’t have a colour like it either & was really hoping this would perform better than January’s release.
I just don’t want Bite Beauty to bank on their good reputation so they stop delivering quality products, because that’s really disappointing – they’ve set such a precedent already.

I can’t bring myself to spend that much on thIs when I can’t even.properly see the color without a swatch. I’m way to busy ans lazy to return something so I’m gonna pass

I was just reading Bite Beauty’s Instagram posts from yesterday. The wrote that they made more of the Feb shade due to the fast sellout last month. And they re formulated this color after the bad reviews from last month.
