Dearest fellow beauty lovers,
I have never been much of a lip makeup person. It’s always hard to find a colour that would show up on my darker lips, but more recently, I have been playing around with lip products and I am here to share my results. Today, I am reviewing the new Bite Beauty Matte Lip Crème Crayon in the color “Gavi.”
Bite describes these lip crayons as “a collection of lip crayons featuring twelve timeless matte shades with superior hydration. 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.”
Size and Pricing:
You get 0.05 ounces or 1.42 gm for $24 or 0.03 ounces or 0.89 grams for $12 in a “mini” version. Something to keep in mind is that the shades do vary between the full and mini sizes. The mini size is definitely a great way to try these out and it is also a better value than the full size.
My Take on Bite Beauty Matte Crème Lip Crayon in Gavi:
The color “Gavi” is described as a fleshy-peach n*de. Looking at the swatches, it looks like a beautiful everyday colour. The texture of the lip crayon is definitely buttery and smooth. Even though this is a pure matte color, it’s not drying like most matte lip products, which is very impressive. But because they are not “dry” is also why they don’t last as long on me as the other matte products.
The consistency of the crayon is easy to work with and it is opaque in one swatch, which is a dream for people with pigmented lips. It goes on easily and dries in about 10 seconds, which gives me time to play with the colour. While I truly do love the shade and product on its own, I didn’t realize this colour has slightly cool under tones. While that makes it an awesome dark-n*de lip with smokey eyes, I wouldn’t wear this colour every day, but it is a beautiful color still.
I still think it’s a great lip product for a lot of people. It lasts about 3 hours on me without eating or drinking anything and that is way longer than any other non-matte lipstick. I also find the packaging convenient to use because this is a twist-up type product, so it’s always ready to go and perfect for touch ups. Because this is a neutral color, I also tried to use it as a base on my lips (because it is so pigmented) to put on other lip products that are not so opaque and I got some fun results!
Things I Love about Bite Beauty Matte Crème Lip Crayon in Gavi:
- I think this is one of a kind cream-matte kind of color.
- Pigmented and shows up on darker lips in a single swipe.
- Not a very unique color, but definitely a good formulation.
- I love the twist-up packaging and how convenient it is to use and easy to carry.
- Cute, simple and functional packaging for a great product.
- Easy to travel with and great for touch ups.
- Lasts longer than the usual lipstick on me.
Things I am Not So Much in Love with about Bite Beauty Matte Crème Lip Crayon in Gavi:
- Definitely not cheap for the quantity.
- This particular colour might wash out warmer skin tones, so be vary of that.
So, I love the product – Yes! Am I in love with the color – not exactly! It is an awesome addition to a make-up lover’s collection, but if you’re on a budget, you can definitely skip this colour. Do I love the formula – Yessss!!! This is definitely an awesome way to get used to matte lip products. So, I would rate Gavi 3.75/5
