Bite Cuvée Set

Here are some swatches of the new Bite Cuvée lipsticks.  I recently bought the new and limited edition set.  From left to right are:  Rose, Blush, Blanc, and Coral.  The most color accurate picture is below (thanks to the warm morning sun in the other two pictures).

These taste delicious and sweet, like most Bite lip products.  They also smell kind of lovely and perfumed.  I would call it a floral scent.  It's not obnoxious to me, but is definitely noticeable.  The pigmentation and texture are superb!  Blush and Blanc are least pigmented, but still quite pigmented, especially for lighter colors.

Below, I am wearing Rose as well as some super bronze-y makeup.

Rose is an almost red pink.  It deepened into a more red red as the day wore on.  Initially, it was ultra buttery smooth and silky soft.  While it didn't dry my lips nearly as much as some other mucho pigmented formulations, my lips were still slightly dry by the end of the long day.  I also needed to re-touch the inner portions of my lips about every 2-3 hours.  I had no bleeding or feathering, but I did use my trusty Urban Decay Ozone clear lip liner outside of my lip line.

Overall, I am very happy with this set!  I recommend it, most especially if you love pinks and cool toned lipsticks.  Bite does some really excellent lipsticks and is natural with food-grade quality ingredients, which I think is pretty cool.  These are so tasty you may have to hold yourself back from snacking on them!!

If you are wondering about Blanc, my gut tells me that it's going to be a tough color for most people to successfully pull off.  It's quite pale.  I wore it today but have no decent pictures yet.  It's a very cool almost lilac toned sort of super light pink.

Please be kind. I'm happy to learn and grow, but it's also my face we're talking about! Also, no shamelessly promoting your blog or site here, please. Thank you!
