Bite Beauty Plum Matte Creme LipstickBite Beauty Plum Matte Creme Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark reddened plum with fine ruby shimmer and a natural finish. It had mostly opaque coverage, but the natural lip color will come through slightly. The finish is definitely not matte, and it had more slip than Juniper but less than Elderberry, so it applied without too much trouble and didn't feather when worn. I noticed some color migrated into lip lines after three to four hours of wear, but the slip in the formula made it easy to smooth it back out by pressing and rubbing lips together. The color lasted for six hours overall and was lightly hydrating. Guerlain Orgueil (P, $49.50) is brighter. Make Up For Ever #13 (P, $19.00) is more shimmery, lighter.
