Bite Beauty Agave Lip Balm ($18.00 for 0.15 oz.) is supposed to be a hydrating, restorative lip balm that comes in a twist-up tube. The texture was firmer in the tube, and there was some tugging until the balm started to melt against my lips. I also went through a tube in three weeks–an entire tube!–as it seemed to wear down quickly. The original Lip Mask lasts all night for me, but the Lip Balm only stayed on for two hours, tops. It felt more like a film of product on the lips than something imparting real moisture or nourishment to my lips.
While I’m a huge fan of the brand’s original Agave Lip Mask, this fell short for me. It just did not seem to keep my lips hydrated or restored; my lips felt dry and never seemed in good condition during the three weeks I used this for. As soon as I stopped using it, within a few days of going back to my normal routine (Jack Black Lip Balm during the day, Clarins Lip Balm at night unless it was a lip-swatching-bonanza kind of day, then Bite’s Agave Lip Mask), and my lips felt and looked so much better.
