A great opaque with one swipe liquid lip that lasts all day for me. I sometimes get the tiniest amount of transfer when I wear this but often I don't see any at all. The formula is a little dry but completely comfortable with a small amount of chapstick underneath. The only issue I have with this is it dries soooo much darker than what is in the tube. When wet it is a lighter pale/dusty pink and it dries to be a darker brown pink, which looks almost nothing like it appears in the tube.

I got a mini of this as a sample from one of my Sephora orders and I have to say it's an amazing liquid lipstick. The colour is completely opaque on the first swipe, quite nice (although I've heard it can be a little orangey on some skin types) and suits me well. The formula is smooth, becomes completely not sticky when it dries after a couple minutes, and very easy to apply. It doesn't emphasize lip lines or dry skin too much either, and it stays on all day with minimal transfer (but it will smudge if it is brushed accidentally). The formula is a little drying afterwards but for a matte liquid lipstick that succeeds in every other aspect I would consider it worth it!

Amazing sparkle and colour to this one that I am in love with. That being said, there is a fair amount of fallout. I've worn this for 10 hours and it lasted pretty well the whole time, though I did notice quite a bit of sparkles on my cheeks after. The colour is best applied with a wet brush and looks very nice over a matte pink, as the shadow itself tends to be a little more on the sheer side when it is not reflecting light with the sparkles.

This concealer was recommended to me. I have very very dark purple under eye circles and this does an OK job of concealing them. My only critiques are that I have tried absolutely everything to keep this concealer from creasing, but it still settles into my lines after just a few minutes. The concealer is a nice consistency to blend but tends to make my eyes look very textured and powdery after about 3-5 hours of wear.

This tiny duo packs a punch. It is my first introduction into Bite products, and I have to say it was okay, but might not have lived up to the expectations I had from hearing the hype. The Opal half is a beautiful sheer purple iridescence that works on its own or underneath Jam. Jam is a berry pink/purple that is very pigmented but not completely opaque. The colour is able to be layered for a more impactful dark berry colour. The colour lasted the full 8 hours I wore it, but by the end had settled into my lip lines quite a bit. There was also a good deal of transfer as the lipstick stayed a little sticky. The formula has a wonderful lemony/minty scent and flavour. The value of this is quite good if you are just looking for an introduction to bite products, or want to have a little duo you can bring anywhere with you (it's just a bit longer than your average Chapstick when closed). I would love to try the other duos to see how they compare!

This lip colour is a beautifully pigmented berry colour, smells amazing (without being overpowering), and is very moisturizing. The colour builds nicely, although it settles into any creases in my lips after a few hours. It also may leave your lips a little bright pink after as I noticed it stains slightly.
