Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayons ~ Review

For those of you who are unfamiliar with Bite Beauty, their products are handmade in Toronto Canada and are literally good enough to eat! They're made from almost all natural ingredients and the high pigment colourants are all food grade approved. Pretty neat right?! I love to support Canadian brands (especially local ones - I'm from Toronto!) so naturally I was incredibly excited to be given 3 of the Matte Creme Lip Crayons (Red Velvet, Cava and Glacé) courtesy of Influenster and Bite Beauty to review. 

For a matte lipstick they feel very creamy and hydrating which is arguably their best feature. When first applied they feel creamy, hydrating and don't accentuate any dry patches. However they do start to feel a bit drier the longer you wear them, and as they fade any dry spots you have become more noticeable. It's a good idea to exfoliate and moisturize prior to wearing them if you want them to look their best.

All three of the shades I received are pigmented and the pointed, self sharpening tip make them a breeze to put on. It is very easy to get an even edge with these lippies. I did find that the cap on Cava was difficult to remove and it nicked the tip of the pencil the first time I opened it. Not a huge deal, but slightly frustrating.

As far as wear goes, I got a few hours out of them but unfortunately they did transfer while eating and drinking. Keep in mind that they're not advertised as transfer proof..Out of the three, Red Velvet stayed on the longest whereas Cava and Glacé seemed to fade quicker.

Hands down my favourite shade is Red Velvet which is a rich, deep red. Red is my all time favourite lip colour and this particular shade is just perfect! It looks great paired with bold or natural makeup and works well for both day and night looks.

Glacé is my second favourite shade. It's a gorgeous dusty mauve and it looks superb when paired with either bold or natural eye makeup. I love this shade for day looks!

Initially, I was a bit put off by Cava which is a lilac beige shade. I liked it, but when I swatched it I was afraid that it would be too light. To my surprise, it didn't appear that light on my lips and it looks fabulous when paired with a bold eye look.

You can find Bite Beauty's Matte Creme Lip Crayons at Sephora, both in-store and online for $28 CAD.

  1. I love how these come in the retractable pen format - it's like a lip pencil and lipstick all in one. I'm not brave enough to wear red lips - you look amazing with strong lip colours! Glace would be my pick of these colours - looks really wearable!
    It was great to meet you today! :)
