Recently, I bought all the new shades of Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayons ($24.00 for 0.05 oz.), and while I haven’t had a chance to wear most of them yet, I thought seeing swatches in the meanwhile might be helpful for those shopping Sephora’s sale. πŸ™‚

I have many of these. Love them. I typically wear them less as a full on structured matte lip (btw-the term matte should be used loosely when describing this formula, IMO) and more as a tinted lip balm by applying a layer of lip balm as a base first. It’s an unstructured lip, but the pigmentation in the product is excellent so you end up with more colour than you normally would with a specific tinted lip balm product. Just another way to enjoy using these lippies. Personal favs = Framboise and Aubergine

I really wish brands would start working on their “matte” descriptions — too many lipsticks are more like… a modern matte than a TRUE matte.

I feel like for several brands “matte” just means a lip color doesn’t have any shimmer or glitter, but it’s really a satin finish. Why not just call it satin?

But I do own Peche, Cognac, and Glace, and the latter is actually matte on me from the moment I put it on.

That too! When I think of “matte,” I imagine something like the KVD Studded Kiss or MAC Retro mattes. Even if they’re drying and uncomfortable, I want my matte to actually be MATTE.

Yeah definitely agree, companies use it to lure us in…its working…at least for these. For me these modern “mattes” are better because I have dry lips no matter how much chapstick or water I drink…sad but true but every once in a while I love me a good solid true matte, my picks tend to be MAC and not the retro mattes.

Wow, LOVE the look of these! Basically any matte lip crayon excites me, but these colours look great. Apparently Sephora will ship to UK now (if their website wasn’t refusing to load), so I might have to try some! (I tried to buy a Sephora set of colourful eyeliners but was devastated as they refused to ship own-brand stuff to the UK, and I was so disappointed I’ve avoided it ever since.)

Hi, Daisy,
Just FYI – the Sephora site crashed last night and was down for *hours* – happened just before and during the start of the big VIB/Rouge sale! Argh!
It had been fixed in the early hours our time if you didn’t get back on to order… It’s not the first time I’ve seen their site go down as winter holiday season approaches!
Good luck. πŸ™‚

All the shades are so pretty. Might have to add one or two while shopping the Sephora VIB sale. Framboise is definitely calling my name!

Aubergine is so pretty! They look like they have a little bit of a sheen, though, which I like (but those looking for true mattes may not).

Definitely wouldn’t call the formula truly matte – they will wear down, of course, over time, but none go on that matte right off the bat.

My first bite purchase was the bite beauty remix set and I fell in love!!!! Makes me really want to try these pencils. My favorites here are cognac and peche because I don’t have any in my stash that are these shades. But the berry/pinks/reds are gorgeous too. I even like truffle, but there do seem to be some application issues with that one.

Another reason to love this brand. These look lovely. I hadn’t noticed Brandy before, but it looks stunning on you! Might have to bring some of these home.

Can we discuss how someone at Bite screwed up the names between Cognac and Truffle? Because to me truffles are brown and cognac is wine colored, not vice versa…

I guess it could be worse. They could have whomever names colors at NYX working for them…

Have you noticed there’s a sharpener in the bottom? You don’t need to sharpen them because they twist up, but if you want that precise tip again, you can reshape them! I thought that was clever on Bite’s part, even if the waste makes me cry.

HAHAHAHAHA .. While we are shipping the sale, my ass! Christine, I was finally prepared and was on early, then SEPHORA SHUTS DOWN! Arrrrrrrrrgh!!!!!!! I am a ROUGE & screwed! Cannot get in!!! Hackers unite! (I’m peeeeeeeeeved) HAPPY SHOPPING TO THOSE WHO WEREN’t shut down! πŸ˜› >!<

Oh yes, I find these bite products slip-slide too much but kudos for the kindness of swatches! πŸ˜€

I love bite products…I have truffle..Really like it. I like that is comfortable to wear and the colors are really nice.

I like these a lot and there’s many a gorgeous shade, but they seem pricy at $24/0.05oz. Convert that to CAD and it’s even worse. Will still keep these in mind as a treat πŸ™‚

I know the ones I have tried are really pigmented, so a little goes a long way, but they are more expensive than traditional lipstick.

I bought Truffle, Aubergine, and Brandy the first day they came out. I just got the holiday minis in Cavi and Glace last night. Just don’t twist them up to see how much product you’re actually getting… you’ll want to cry. πŸ˜‰

Do you know if these are limited edition or permanent? If I remember correctly, they did a round of these before for the spring/summer and I was so mad that I wasn’t able to get my hands on one. Aubergine, Truffle and Cognac are stunning! However, I wish they were a little more matte, they look awfully shiny to be a matte.

Love these! I have Brandy (wore for my wedding), Framboise, Sucre, and Glace (which I bought by accident but have ended up liking since that mauve-purple is a really in color this fall. I like that they aren’t drying.

Wow, these are very pretty! The packaging’s shape reminds me of Buxom’s Full On Lipstick. I might have to check these out. As for the Sephora sale, their website is TOTALLY overloaded!! I finally got in this morning at 2 AM and ordered some stuff ( UD Naked Loose Powder, Nars Dual Intensity Eyeshadows, etc) but will try again later.

I think Bite is my favorite lip brand right now… Everything I’ve tried from them is lovely, long-lasting and comfortable to wear. I already have Framboise, but now i think I need Brandy and Sucre too. Thank goodness for the VIB coupon!

So many pretty colours! I think I even like, and want one of the nudeish colours, Glace. I don’t think I’ll get it, though as I can’t try it before buying.
Looking forward to the reviews.

What’s with so many warm colors? Even the few that are more cool aren’t very wearable to me. Why don’t they start actually making matte products instead of satin if they want to call them matte so bad. Ugh…

I have many of these, so I’m looking forward to reviews! I love Bite Beauty & find these really comfortable to wear & nicely pigmented. I also just bought the Mix N’ Mingle set because I didn’t have any of the shades in there, and a few seem to be limited edition. Also *fun fact* did you know that each one has a sharpener in the bottom?! I was amazed after seeing a Bite Beauty Instagram post! πŸ˜€

The colours are all so nice!! It makes me want them but I really just have more than enough lip products right now. I’ll settle to reading your reviews.

I have a few of these – Amaretto, Aubergine and Glace. I love the colors and feel, but sometimes I feel like I have to use a clear lip liner with them.

I definitely have all but truffle and cognac (yikes, I am a bite addict!!)! I bought them the moment they came out (and two of the J Crew offerings) because I am so obsessed. I really love them. I have confidence issues with the light shades (I’m NW13) but they are truly so great to wear. I hope you love them like I do! But ~matte more than matte, ya know? They do wear down matte IMO, but so comfortable to wear. Anyway! Look forward to your review!

They’re nice but they can be a little drying if you normally get dry lips, I think. Favorites are Tatin, Glace and Brandy. Although the Brandy I have looks a little more deeper and a little more on the Burgundy side so that’s weird. Although I like the colors, I’ll probably not repurchase, only reason being is that if you do the math, you get more product for your buck from most high end brands, which some of their lipsticks are better quality anyways. I think if you’re looking for a matte that’s not drying in the slightest, Givenchy Le Rouge is the way to go. I want to buy up that whole line πŸ™‚

I was shocked to see how Glace looked on your lips, Christine. On my super pale skin (and fairly dark lips) it comes out as more of a really dark mauve. It is gorgeous none the less! I think I’ll just have to expect that these colors are going to look darker on me.
