Bite Beauty : Matte Creme Lip Crayons in Sucre, Peche, Framboise, Tatin, and Fraise

Apparently Jules over at The Brauhaus and I are on the same page as to what we’re reviewing today. Bite had a limited edition run with a set of Matte Cream Lip Crayons a few months ago, which I swatched and reviewed here. After they disappeared, and after the release of the beautiful Deconstructed Rose lipsticks, they’ve come out with another collection of matte crayons.

From what I can tell, these are permanent. There were two rounds to this release; I think Bite decided to release the more commercially friendly shades first, and then shades that are more brown based in the second release. In the second release, the only one I think is interesting is Aubergine, but that’ll come in a later post.

Tatin

Tatin is described as a rose pink. It’s a beautiful spring color that will also be great with a lot of the holiday looks that are about to pop up in the season.

Framboise

Sucre is a warm pink. It’s in a race to be my favorite with Framboise. It’s super wearable and a pink I’m sure will look flattering on most skintones.

 

 

 

Fraise is a jewel red, meaning it’s warmer than the typical blue based reds out there.

 

 

 

 

Peche is described as a warm peach. I think it has a lot of pink in it which makes it totally wearable for me.

 
Framboise is, of course, my favorite. It’s exactly the kind of shade I’m drawn to. It’s described as a vibrant pink/purple. I was expecting it to be slightly more purple, but I think this is one of those shades that will be perfect for the fall for those who don’t gravitate towards dark shades.

 

 

As a whole, these are some of my favorite mattes. I love the crayons, and I’m super excited that they’ve been added to the permanent line. A note on the application – you need to blot it or else it’ll look patchy. It’s 100% due to having too much product on. With a product that you have to blot, you have to take into consideration the fact that you’re losing product each time you have to apply. I’m also not a fan of how they changed the packaging. I really liked the first round of pencils where the color of the product was on the bottom of the pencil, making it much easier to find. However, since I like these so much, I suppose I’ll just have to forgive them for it.

Price: $24 for 0.05 ounces ($480/oz).
For comparison purposes, NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencils are $25 for .086 ounces ($290.69/oz) and Marc Jacobs Kiss Pop Lip Color Sticks are $28 for 0.15 ounces ($186.67/oz).

While the Bite Matte Creme Lip Pencils are the most expensive, I find that they’re the most moisturizing and you don’t have to sharpen them. Depending on what your priorities are when buying makeup, I definitely think these are worth the extra cash.

You can find these at Sephora.

    This is good to know. I’ve been playing with NARS’s mattes, and have been (a bit) disappointed with the moisturizing quality. I’ve convinced myself it’s a necessary evil when it comes to mattes. Your swatches are gorgeous, btw!

      Thank you! Are you trying out their Velvet Matte Lip Pencils or their Pure Matte Lipsticks? I really like the pencils (I don’t find them drying so long as I make sure to put a balm on when I start my makeup and lipstick is the last thing), but I can definitely see the Pure Matte Lipsticks being a pain

  2. Ohh I love the sound of these! I haven’t tried anything by bite yet but when I finally get to sephora I will pick these up 🙂 x
