Bite Beauty Cafe Matte Creme Lip Crayon Review

“Bite Beauty” is one of my favorite brands with so many awesome products to choose from. Today, I am reviewing the shade “Cafe” from their Matte Creme lip crayon range. Matte lips have been really popular lately and these lipsticks will keep you right on trend. Matte lips are also super “work appropriate” and I feel that I can pull off even dark or berry lips with subdued eye makeup.  Bite Beauty is famous for their food-grade ingredients; however, they never compromise on pigmentation or performance. These are honestly my favourite lipsticks. I reach for these, despite having similar shades in other brands. Let’s get to the product now!! 😀

Bite Beauty Cafe Matte Creme Lip Crayon

$24 for 0.05 oz.

Product Description:
Bite’s latest breakthrough formula boasts a collection of beautiful n*des, striking reds, and deep burgundies with a matte yet moist texture. The secret is the moisture-locking power of orange peel wax along with the antioxidant properties of resveratrol. The colors are water-resistant, and long wearing.

Ingredients: -Resveratrol (5mg): Acts as an antioxidant.

  • Orange Peel Wax: Naturally protects and seals in moisture while providing a waterproof layer on the surface of lips.
  • Organic Fruit Butters, Jojoba, and Castor Oil: Leave lips super-soft and hydrated.

My Experience with Bite Beauty Cafe Matte Creme Lip Crayon:

The lip crayon comes in a sleek, grey twist-up tube packaging. The product can be twisted all the way up and back down. It’s a matte grey tube with a matching cap, so you can’t see what colour you’re picking if you have a bunch of these in your stash. I find this a bit annoying 🙁 They could have added the shade color at the bottom base.  You can however see the shade when you open it. The bottom denotes the shade name.  All this being said, the tube looks really classy. One of my guy friends even commented that he loved the way it looked. He thought it was some kind of a weapon (yeah guys are dumb :P).

Shade:  This shade is called “Cafe.” On the site, it is described as a “peachy-brown n*de” color. On me, it is a light n*de color. I think it depends on the original pigment of the lips as well. It may come up as n*de/pink on you depending on your lips and complexion. In some lights, it looks more pinkish and that looks pretty too. It has excellent pigmentation and one swipe will cover all kind of lips. It lasts on me for 3-4 hours.

I pair this shade with heavy eye makeup and it is my HG matte n*de!! It’s really hard to find a good n*de in the US since they cater mostly to very pale skin tones. The n*des typically in the market are too pale and wash me out completely.

Texture:  This is a creamy lipstick that goes on without dragging. It settles to a matte finish with no sheen or shimmer. I do notice that some shades may settle into lines if I neglect to exfoliate my lips. It does not dry out my lips, but does not add any moisture either. I don’t need a lip balm with this lip crayon. I love the way it feels and it is one of the most comfortable lipsticks I have ever tried, and I reach out for it almost every day. One of the best things about this crayon is that it’s so easy to apply, with the thin bullet. I am hooked!

There is a very signature scent with these lip crayons. I can sort of describe it as a lemony, slightly herbal scent, but it doesn’t bother me at all, as it fades. There’s no taste.
