Matte lips have been really popular lately and these lippies by Bite Beauty will keep you right on trend. Matte lips are also work appropriate (I have already reviewed shade Cafe) 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.
Price: $24 for 0.05 oz
BITE’s latest breakthrough formula boasts a collection of beautiful nudes, 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.
• Resveratrol (5 mg): 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 Matte Crème Lip Crayon – Aubergine:
Packaging: 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 with a matching cap, so you can’t see what colour you’re picking if you have a bunch. I found it a bit annoying. They could have added the shade color on the 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 weapon (yeah! guys are dumb).
Shade: The shade is called “Aubergine”. On the site, it is described as “eggplant”.
I think this is my second favourite from the range after Torte. It is the most beautiful berry-toned shade for winters. It has that berry feel without looking too vampy. It’s similar to MAC Rebel in color, and although Rebel is a satin finish, this feels more satiny.
It has excellent pigmentation and one swipe will cover all kinds of lips. It lasts on me for 3-4 hours.
Texture: This is a creamy lipstick that goes on without dragging. It settles to a satin to matte finish. I do notice that some shades may settle into lines if I neglect to exfoliate. It does not dry out my lips, but does not add moisture either. I don’t need a lip balm with this. 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 it is how easy it is to apply, with the thin bullet. I am hooked!
These lipsticks have a signature scent. I can sort of describe it as lemony, slightly herbal scent but it doesn’t bother me at all, as it fades. There’s no taste.
Pros of Bite Beauty Matte Crème Lip Crayon – Aubergine:
● Smooth and creamy.
● Not drying, but then again, not hydrating.
● Classy packaging.
● Good pigmentation.
● Pretty berry shade.
● Very easy to apply bullet.
Cons of Bite Beauty Matte Crème Lip Crayon – Aubergine:
● Has a slightly weird smell.
IMBB Rating: 4.5/5
