I’ve been meaning to review the Bite Beauty Collector’s Edition Set since last month and of course it’s sold out now at Sephora (only 1000 were made!) – the set included 10 double-ended lipsticks for a total of 20 different shades and was a great deal at $98 (plus an extra 20% off when I bought it)! Since you can still buy the Luminous Creme Lipsticks individually I thought it would go ahead and review the formula and share my thoughts on some of the colors because Bite Beauty really makes some of my favorite lip products!
The mini lipsticks in this set are each .14oz (.07 per color) whereas the regular sized Luminous Creme Lipsticks are .13oz each. I love the sleek minimal packaging but if I had any complaint it would be that it’s a bit hard to read the names of the colors on the end of the mini lipsticks but this is not so much an issue on the full-sized colors! In terms of formula, these are long-lasting and creamy without being too creamy. I’m not really a fan of really matte lipsticks so the formula is perfect for me, but you may need a lip liner with some of the more intense shades to prevent feathering.
Of course one of the best things about Bite Beauty, is the formula is free of parabens, sulfates, synthetics, polybutenes, and petroleum byproducts and made exclusively with lip nurturing food-grade ingredients that are healthy enough to eat. And as a bonus, the lip colors deliver the super antioxidant resveratrol, which fights free radicals with potent long-term anti-aging benefits!
As you can see there were a variety of shades in the set (20 out of the 25 Luminous Creme Lipstick colors) and I found them to be pretty true to their descriptions. For all of these swatches I swiped each color back and forth once but they could be layered on your lips for ever more color. I was pleasantly surprised at how many of the colors were actually flattering against my (medium tan with golden/olive undertones) skin!
A few thoughts on the colors:
- Most are well pigmented with the exception of lavender and vento which are fairly sheer.
- Apricot is a bit more orange than any color I would typically buy, but not too orange.
- Salut and cava could be great nudes on the right person, but they were both a little too light for me.
- I wish the set included a really deep vampy color – mulberry is the darkest but it’s not really that dark.
- My favorite shades are pomegranate (cherry red), mulberry (berry wine), shiraz (soft plum), vidal (raspberry pink) and palomino (vibrant magenta).
Overall I think the set was a great deal to try a lot of different colors and I’m definitely going to be picking up some of the regular sized colors if/when I run out of these! Have you tried anything from Bite Beauty before?
