Bite Beauty Cocoa Crush Crystal Crème Shimmer Lip Crayon ($24.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a muted, medium brown with strong, warm undertones and a lot of golden shimmer and finer sparkle. Applied, it looked deeper--more chocolaty brown than golden brown. I suspect part of that was due to the shimmer getting spread out and more of the base color coming through, along with it having more semi-opaque pigmentation and allowing my natural color to influence the finished effect. The texture was lightweight, velvety without being slippery, and easy to maneuver across my lips for fairly even coverage. I did find there was some emphasis of my natural lip texture with the amount of shimmer in the formula, though. On me, it wore well for four and a half hours and was lightly moisturizing while worn.
