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 🙂

Hawkeye

Urban Decay Hawkeye Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a medium-dark green with subtle, warm undertones and cooler, emerald green pearl. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that covered the lips without tugging on them, but the color itself could have applied more evenly. The texture was thin but moderately emollient, which helped it apply without pulling on the lips, but it did not help keep the color in place. This shade wore well for four and a half hours but was prone to color getting in my deeper lip lines over time. It felt moisturizing while I wore it.

Formula Overview

$17.00/0.11 oz. - $154.55 Per Ounce

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is available in six finishes, which are primarily distinguished by level of sheen, shimmer content, and coverage. Mega Mattes are the thinnest and have the most “cling” as they are drier and more matte (but most are semi-matte and not a totally flat matte) and can be drying, though they are longer-wearing.

Comfort Mattes are creamier, a little denser, with richer color payoff on average (they are the most pigmented out of the finishes), and have a satin finish that is fairly comfortable to wear, usually lightly hydrating, and longer-wearing.

Creams are usually softer and creamier, though not too soft (they don’t mush or break from the base easily), with some being tackier and stiffer in the tube until they warm up against the lips; they have good color payoff, are hydrating, and are comfortable to wear but have more typical wear (four to six hours–six hours for deeper/richer shades like a red).

Sheers and Sheer Shimmers have a more balm-like consistency that feels a little thinner but is wetter/more emollient than Mega Mattes, so ultimately, they feel quite different applied; they have sheerer coverage, though more semi-sheer to semi-opaque than very sheer, and have the shortest wear time at two to fours with light hydration.

Metallized is the most shimmery of the finishes, though some of the other finishes have shades that are actually as shimmery (to me), but the Metallized formula has a thinner, more emollient base that isn’t as dense or as cream-like as the Creams; they feel more like the Sheers but a bit heavier and more pigmented (but seem to run semi-opaque to opaque, not always fully opaque) with average wear (four to five hours), light hydration.
