Bite Beauty says: A purse-friendly triage of hydrating color, perfect for when you’re on the go. Mini Lipstick provides long-lasting color and moisture-rich coverage made from food-grade ingredients that are good enough to eat. Mini Lip Shine is a luscious pairing that combines a lip conditioning treatment with intense shine. In every application, a micro-delivery of super antioxidant resveratrol fights free radicals with potent long-term age-repair benefits. Each Bite product contains the amount of resveratrol equivalent to five glasses of red wine.
Bite Beauty is a newer member of the Sephora family, and all I really knew about it was that it has resveratrol in it. So… what is resveratrol? A quick Google search led me to this video from Dr. Oz. In a nutshell, it’s in red wine and it’s good for you. Boom. Lets start drinking, for our healths sake.
Well anyway, since we know it’s good when ingested, there’s positive topical benefits as well.

As much as I wanted to fully extend the lipstick and take a big bite to test this theory, I resisted this urge. Mostly because it would be really expensive.
Lip Shine: It has sheer coverage, it just gives the lips a nice bit of warmth. The color is coral with a hint of pink. If you have a lot of pink in your natural lips, you’re not going to see a lot of color when you apply this. It feels very soft with some slip to it, but it’s not as sticky as, say, a MAC Lipglass. Bite Beauty describes this as a “glossy, translucent, lip tint” and I find that to be an accurate description. The jojoba and lanolin leave my lips feeling soft and hydrated. This only wears for about 2 hours.
Luminous Crème Lipsticks: There are two shades; Pepper (dusty rose) and Fig (nude rose). These feel very soft on the lips with semi-opaque coverage. Both shades are very wearable for warm medium skin tones. I do need to run the tube over my lips 3-4 times to really feel like I have product on my lips. Bite Beauty says the best application is with a lip brush, which worked fine but it takes more time and I still needed just as much product. They are creamy, moisturizing and very natural looking. They wear for about 4 hours. Fig is my new favorite MLBB (my lips but better) lipstick!
The gloss is lacking in wear time but still scores points for its unique moisturizing formula. The lipsticks are also moisturizing with semi-opaque coverage. They are very natural and wearable shades, and if you have pink in your lips these will compliment it nicely. If you like a creamy formula then you might want to check these out. I really like Bite Beauty’s brand philosophy (read more about them here) and will definitely be checking out more of their stuff!
