Bite Beauty Centifolia Deconstructed Rose Lipstick
Bite Beauty Deconstructed Rose Lipstick ($28.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a recently released set of four shades (two included in this post, two I’ll review shortly!) “inspired by the ever-changing color of a rose.” They’re creamy, light-medium in weight, richly pigmented, hydrating, and wear well. The formula is rose-scented, but I didn’t have any issues with taste. In all honesty, the formula didn’t really seem any different from the Luminous Creme lipstick, but an attempt to read through the ingredient list on this one (which is difficult to read on this packaging), while it is similar to the Luminous Creme, doesn’t appear to be exactly the same.
Bite Beauty Centifolia Deconstructed Rose Lipstick ($28.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “muted peach.” It’s a light-medium, muted peach-orange with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It had rich, full color coverage that went on evenly and smoothly without gathering into the vertical lines of the lip. This shade wore well for four hours, which is about average, and it was the shortest-wearing of the four shades. Sephora Collection Samba (LE, $12.50) is brighter, warmer. Too Faced Melted Coral (P, $21.00) is brighter, lighter. Tom Ford Beauty Sweet Spot (05) (LE, $49.00) is sheerer. Givenchy Brun Createur (103) (P, $36.00) is darker, rosier. Givenchy Croisiere Coral (310) (LE, $36.00) is slightly more matte, darker. MAC Style Surge (P, $22.00) is a touch darker. MAC Razzledazzler (LE, $16.00) is lighter, sheerer.

Bite Beauty Grandifolia Deconstructed Rose Lipstick ($28.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “fiery red.” It’s a vibrant, orange-red with warm undertones and a luminous shine. The color payoff is intense–extremely rich and full coverage in a single pass. The color lasted for six hours and left behind a warm, reddish stain. Givenchy Carmin Escarpin (306) (P, $36.00) is similar. Dior Trafalgar (844) (P, $34.00) is more orange. MAC Dangerous (P, $16.00) is matte. Maybelline Infra-red (LE, $7.49) is very similar. Maybelline Neon Red (P, $7.49) is more orange. MAC Scarlet Ibis (LE, $16.00) is matte. Guerlain Genna (LE, $51.00) is a touch darker. Hourglass Raven (P, $28.00) is matte, brighter.
