On my last visit to Sephora, I was blissfully trying out new products and that is when I stumbled upon the Bite Beauty products. Their claims of using natural, food grade ingredients had me intrigued. After trying a lot of their lip products in the store, I became a fan of their line. So when I saw they had this travel size luminous creme lipstick duo, I decided to buy it before going for the full-sized lipsticks. It came in two different versions, one was called Neutral with two pink n*de shades and the other one was called Vivid with two bright shades. I went with the Vivid version.
A bite-sized lipstick duo of contrasting shades. This mini duo of twist-up bullets offer neutral or vivid lips on the go. Wear them individually or layer to create your own custom look. With every application, antioxidant Resveratrol fights free radicals with potent long-term age-repair benefits. Each lipstick contains the Resveratrol equivalent of two glasses of red wine, reducing fine lines and wrinkles on and around the lip area over time.
$12 for 2 x 0.05 oz, $24 for 0.13 oz lipstick.
It is formulated without parabens, sulfates, phthalates.

At Bite’s Soho Lip Lab, these Fresh, Spring-forward shade combinations were spotted as a trend. Created with natural and food-grade ingredients, Bite Beauty lip products do not contain petrochemicals and are certified gluten-free.
I love the packaging, reminds me of the NARS packaging, matte black and classy. This one is a travel-sized dual ended matte black, rubbery tube, looks very sleek and classy. The cap closes tightly enough to make it travel friendly.

My Experience with Bite Beauty Luminous Creme Lipstick Duo in Vivid:
I am so happy I picked up Vivid – these two colors are just beautiful. I am in love and can’t wait to go back and get the full size products. Seems like my whole makeup and skin care collection is slowly being replaced by products with natural, organic ingredients and I am not complaining!!!This lipstick goes a step further, in addition to containing healthy edible ingredients, it also has Resveratrol which is an antioxidant equivalent of two glasses of red wine and is supposed to reduce fine lines and wrinkles in and around the lip area over time. It is also certified to be gluten free which is great for gluten-intolerant ladies. Isn’t it impressive?
The first color is called “Palomino,” which is a bright magenta shade and the second color is “Violet,” which is a purple with pink undertones. Both these shades are deeply pigmented. Just one swipe and I am good to go. They have glossy and vibrant finish. I find both these shades to be very wearable.
The formula of the Bite Beauty Luminous Creme Lipstick is very smooth and creamy. It glides on effortlessly, I have to be careful not go outside the lines. I love how moisturizing it feels on the lips without being thick. I do not feel any need to apply a lip balm; my lips remain hydrated for hours with this lipstick. It does not bleed or feather around my lips. It stays on for about three to four hours, just like most of the lipsticks. I have to reapply it after eating; it transfers quite a bit. However it leaves a pretty stain on the lips afterwards. It does not settle in to fine lines or cracks. This lipstick does have a faint sweet scent which I really like; it is not at all overwhelming.
Overall, I am very impressed with this lipstick. $24 for a lipstick is a bit too much, but I don’t mind paying the price for a quality product that I know I will be using a lot.
