Discover: Bite Beauty || HWong’s Holidays 2016

This holiday, discover a new brand: Bite Beauty. Now, they’re no newcomer in my makeup collection, but definitely a brand that I haven’t spoken much of on my blog. Their Discovery Set this season has got me in love, from the tin container to the products that it comes with.

Bite Beauty, was founded in Toronto, Ontario (Canada) by Susanne Langmuir. All lipsticks are handmade at their factory located in Toronto. They strive towards the use of natural ingredients and to ensuring that pigmentation and quality of each product is to the best of its ability.

I fell in love with Bite Beauty a few years back and my love for the brand has only grown as I’ve immersed myself more and more into the world of beauty and cosmetics. This holiday season, they’ve really been winning the whole game with their holiday sets (which, they’re not even done releasing yet!) They’re exclusively sold at Sephora, and while there are limited edition shades available to Canadians, there are two Lip Labs located for the creation of your own custom shade! (New York & now Toronto!)

The Discovery Set consists of four essentials for this holiday season: the Line & Define Primer, Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Beetroot, Matte Crème Lip Crayon in Léché, and the Agave Lip Mask. All packaged within this red tin case, the case will definitely be handing for future storage of makeup products!

Deluxe Line & Define Primer (0.03 oz/0.87 g)

This is a product that I haven’t tried yet from Bite, but I’m really excited to see how it compares to other lip primers that I’ve used. It comes in a twist-up packaging, which I am way more fond of than the traditional pencil sharpening lip product.

Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Beetroot (0.15 oz/4.35 g)

I am a big fan of the Amuse Bouche collection, they’re super creamy and pigmented. They consist of 12 edible oils to ensure moisturized lips and all have a citrus flavour. The lipstick in the set is a full size product that retails for $30 CAD/26 USD, so you’re really getting a good deal with this set. Beetroot is a bold berry colour, but when worn, it looks a little more red.

I’ve swatched the lipstick with a few other lipsticks in my collection that I found were a little similar.

Swatched berry lipsticks

1. Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Beetroot
2. Bite Beauty Luminous Creme Lipstick in Mulberry (DISCONTINUED)
Mulberry comes off a little more berry than Beetroot, while the formulation seems about the same in pigmentation, this collection was sadly discontinued. I can only hope that Bite re-releases Mulberry as an Amuse Bouche shade.

3. Bite Beauty Luminous Creme Lipstick in Tannin (DISCONTINUED, but available in Amuse Bouche formulation)
Tannin is clearly much more red-orange than a berry shade. It definitely did not look as berry as Beetroot and Mulberry did but I thought it would add a little variation in the mix.

4. Burberry Full Kisses in Oxblood No. 549
With way more brown shades in this lipstick compared to Beetroot, the formulation also required a few more swipes to get the shade to be as pigmented and opaque as Beetroot in the swatch. 

5. Covergirl Colorlicious Lipstick in Euphoria 315
Euphoria came off more pink than any of the shades swatched. It also came off a little streaky and difficult to swipe on colour to get around the same level of pigmentation as the others.

Matte Crème Lip Crayon in Léché (0.05 oz/1.56 g)

Adding another full sized product to the set, this lip crayon retails for $28 CAD/$24 USD, making the set way more worth it than possibly anything. The lip crayon is more of a nude shade, making the set a nice mix between an evening lip and an everyday lip. This was my first lip crayon from Bite, and I’m nothing but happy with its formulation and packaging. It’s very sleek packaging and once again consists of the twist-up mechanism so I don’t have to carry a sharpener around with me when wearing this product. It comes off as a nice muted mauve tone.

I found that it reminded me of my Colourpop Lippie Stix in Brink.

Lip Swatches (L – R): Colourpop Lippie Stix in Brink, Bite Beauty Matte Crème Lip Crayon in Léché

I think it’s pretty evident that the Colourpop Lippie Stix has a little more brown undertones to it than the lip crayon does. While the shades are different, the formulation of both products are very creamy and pigmented.

I specifically like that the tip of the Bite lip crayon is pointed, it can also double as a lip liner prior to applying the product and gives a more precise application.

Deluxe Agave Lip Mask (0.18 oz/5 g)

Please excuse the super chapped lips, the changing of seasons and my fever is not on my side at all. However, this lip mask has made my lips feel so moisturized, I’m surprised I haven’t tried it until now. While, I do have samples, I never got to trying them out. But upon applying this mask, it is definitely going to be a staple in my collection. It’s a fairly thick and sticky formula but tastes pretty good if you accidentally lick it (IT IS agave, after all!). While, I’m not a big fan of the packaging of having my finger pick up the product and applying it with my finger, I’m also not a fan of applying the product directly from the tube to my lips, so either way it can’t be a win-win. However, with the quality of this product, I will overlook this little detail and purchase a full size once this is used up!

All in all, Bite Beauty is winning in all the holiday sets that are being released in my opinion. While their releases are not helping with my lipstick ban, I highly encourage you to pick up a holiday set from them this season!

Until next time,
