Bite Beauty Midnight Rye Power Move Creamy Matte Lip Crayon ($24.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a deep, chocolaty brown with subtle, warm undertones and a cream finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage in a single layer, which applied evenly and fluidly over my lips comfortably.
There was a smidgen of product that sank into my deeper lip lines toward the inner area of my lip that I could see in the close-up photo but couldn't detect in person. The lip crayon had a lightweight, creamy texture that was smooth, emollient without being too slippery, and had a touch of tackiness after the initial application that helped keep it in place. It wore nicely for six hours and felt moisturizing over time.
