Champagne Discovery

Bite Beauty Champagne Discovery Holiday 2017 Lip Set ($35.00 for 0.36 oz.) contains a lipgloss, lip pencil, and a multi-use cream stick (can be used on eyes, lips, and cheeks). All three shades are part of the brand’s permanent offerings, so they can be purchased individually as well. They are full-sized products, so the set has a great value at $65 worth of products.

I did notice some issues with packaging, though, as my Multistick had a fault twist mechanism and damaged stick (cosmetic damage, only) and my lip pencil had no point so I had to sharpen to expose product and there was a tip of wax after sharpening. If any readers pick up the trio, I’d love to hear if there were any discrepancies in packaging, as it struck me as odd. The products themselves were consistent with the permanent versions that I have reviewed previously. Edit: I wanted to update and let you know that Bite reached out to get batch codes for the Multistick and Lip Pencil so they can look into it 🙂

Kat Von D The Saint Everlasting Flash Lip Set

Kat Von D Saint Everlasting Flash Lip Set

Kat Von D Saint Everlasting Flash Lip Set

Saint

Kat Von D The Saint Everlasting Flash Lip Set ($38.00 for 0.29 oz.) is a limited edition set that was available for 48 hours. Now, normally the Everlasting sets seem to be a way to preview shades that will be released in full later on, but per the brand’s Facebook, they stated it was “an exclusive shade that won’t be available after the flash sale is over.” It seems bizarre, since the set was to celebrate the relaunch of the brand’s Saint and Sinner fragrances, and it would seem fitting to have coordinating liquid lipsticks. I thought it was going to come back, so I tested it as soon as my order arrived, but I guess this post just serves to provide dupes…

The set also came with samples of Saint and Sinner fragrances, but I’ve excluded them from the set for review purposes (fragrance doesn’t get rated on a rubric like lip colors are!).

Pillow Talk

Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Matte Revolution Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium pink with warmer undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had medium, buildable color coverage–up to mostly opaque–with a velvety, smooth, and thin consistency that clung a bit to lips, though not in an uncomfortable, drying kind of way. I just felt like it had a tendency to emphasize my lip lines a bit as some color pulled into them.

The Matte Revolution formula is supposed to be “long-lasting, buildable [and] hydrating.” When I tested the lipstick, it stayed on well for four and a half hours and was non-drying. It was easy to apply, reapply, and to wear, but I wish it was kinder to my lip lines and was hydrating as described!

Bite Beauty #098 The Lip Pencil ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark purple with warm, pink undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had medium, buildable coverage (up to semi-opaque) that applied fairly evenly to lips. The consistency was smooth and just creamy enough to be able to blend the color by pressing my lips together if used all over the lips. The color wore nicely for just over six and a half hours and was non-drying. I think it would work best with Amuse Bouche shades: Eggplant (lighter, warmer), Dragonfruit (lighter, brighter) see comparison swatches.

The Lip Pencil is supposed to have “perfect, allover, opaque lip coverage” with a lightweight feel. The formula worked exceptionally well for lining the edges of the lips and keeping lipstick on longer and more within the lines (e.g. a lipstick feathers on its own wouldn’t feather when layered over one of the lip pencils). Some shades worked well for filling in the lips for all over color, but a few applied more unevenly or were less comfortable to fill in with. The consistency was soft, just barely creamy–almost more velvety than creamy–and oddly spreadable, as it was infinitely easier to even out the color by rubbing my lips together than applying more product. The formula has a lightweight feel on the lips, and the wear ranged from five to six hours for light to medium-hued shades with some of the deeper and richer shades lasting well over six hours. They will require sharpening, and as they are creamier, it was easiest to keep them in a cool place or in the freezer (for a few minutes) prior to sharpening to minimize any mess in the sharpener.

Bite Beauty #076 The Lip Pencil ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a slightly muted, medium-dark orange-red with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had rich color payoff that applied smoothly on the lips with a little unevenness (which was easy to blend out by pressing my lips together). The consistency was thin, lightweight, and creamy enough to work as an all over color comfortably. It wore well for seven hours and was slightly drying after six hours of wear. I think it would work best with Amuse Bouche shades: GTA (lighter, brighter), Maple (darker), Cayenne (brighter), Persimmon (lighter, brighter) see comparison swatches.

Bite Beauty #082 The Lip Pencil ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a medium-dark brick red with warmer undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had rich, opaque pigmentation in a single stroke, which translated well when I used it just to the line edges of my lips, as it was opaque and did not have any ragged edges. However, when I used it all over my lips, it wasn’t quite as opaque. The consistency was smooth and blendable while it adhered well to lips for strong, over six-hour wear. The formula felt neither drying nor hydrating on me. I think it would work best with Amuse Bouche shades: Maple (warmer), Tannin (cooler, darker), Gazpacho (cooler) see comparison swatches.
