Bite Beauty Love Bite Lip Set!

Press Sample

 

For Summer 2017, Bite Beauty launched the new Love, Bite Lip Set ($42 for a $70 value), a fun giftable trio exclusive to Sephora. The set has two full-size Multisticks, a full-size Prismatic Pearl Crème Lip Gloss, and a beautiful floral print mirror, all in a darling pink collectible Bite Beauty tin. Such a cute and feminine set!

I only have one Amuse Bouche Bite lipstick so the Multisticks are new to me and I was excited to try them! Made with 35 percent powder in each bullet, the Multisticks go on like a cream and wear like a powder and can be used for color on your eyes, lips, and cheeks. Cashew is a warm medium rosy taupe with a matte finish and Gelato is a muted plum with a matte finish. The sticks have a creamy consistency and then dry down. They deliver rich color with one swipe and apply easily. The finish is blendable and buildable. These provide the perfect balance between a cream and a powder and don’t dry down so much that they blend away.

My problem with Cashew and Gelato is definitely not the formulation but the shades, especially on my lips. Cashew is very flat and brown with a gray undertone on me and Gelato is a gray lavender that really does make me look like the undead. A fashion forward zombie, but still. I fared better with the two shades on my cheeks, my skin tone brings out more pink in Gelato making it easier to wear and Cashew turns a bit red. Both are okay, but nothing I would reach for on a regular basis. Gelato is quite pretty on the eyes, a light lavender. It didn’t crease and wander out of place but I don’t have oily lids so you may not fare as well. Cashew is a reddish brown on my eyes. Again, they are pretty but not unique or something I would use regularly.

Rose Pearl Prismatic Pearl Crème Lip Gloss is a metallic rose with violet and green shimmer. It’s quite sparkly and has buildable medium to semi-opaque coverage. It applies smoothly to the lips with one coat and lasts for about four to five hours on me.  The shimmer is quite intense but does not feel gritty on the lips, it also has a light minty scent. I won’t wear this alone but it is very pretty over the multisticks.

Bottom Line: I really like the products in the Bite Beauty Love, Bite Lip Set. I’m quite impressed with the multisticks, but I don’t understand why they chose these particular colors as I don’t think they are flattering to many skin tones. Both cashew and gelato have so much gray in them they aren’t flattering. Why not a set with pinks, peaches, corals or reds? I would totally jump on that! With so many universally flattering tones why choose dreary gray? Ah, the mysteries of the universe!

    I totally want to get this set now!! I LOVE the colors included in the set and think they would look good on me.

  2. Allison @neversaydiebeauty says

    Oh that adorable mirror! I love Bite Beauty lipsticks. I could wear the darker one and the gloss but the light shade unfortunately is too light for me. Definitely a great gift set!

  3. Okay, I need the prismatic pearl cream. This set is absolutely adorable! I want one for me and all my girls!

  4. I love a good honest review post. The packaging is AMAZING and I love the idea of multiuse sticks like that. I do agree with you though, I am not the biggest fan of the colors. I think I would still try it out though!

    I really love BITE Beauty and just learned of it recently. I admire that they are so natural and gluten free! Thats almost impossible to find, and their products are high quality as well!

  6. Kristina says

    These are very pretty colors. I like trying new colors for lipstick or lipgloss. It’s fun!

  7. I’m newbie when it come’s to Bite Beauty, but I have been looking at their lipsticks and I think I might cave and get some! Thanks for reviewing!

  8. THAT GLOSS! I need!

  9. I find the colors to be similar to other stuff I have but I love Bite in general!9

  10. Phyrra Nyx says

    This is such a great set. Gelato is a favorite of mine.

  11. The set looks beautiful but I can see the flaws in it. Somewhere in my mess I have Gelato but I’ve only used it on my cheeks and I like the look.

  12. Marcie Wirtz Cheung says

    That packaging alone is gorgeous! The color choices are a bit wonky for me, but I’m sure they would look great on someone.

  13. That is a beautiful gift set. The colours aren’t exactly “me” but the presentation is on point.

  14. Miss VeraJeanae says

    This looks like a very nice set. All of the colors will be perfect for this summer!

  15. That love bite gift set is is so super cute! If I only knew about this for mothers day!

  17. Amanda Love says

    It looks awesome. I think it’s nice that there’s a set like this. The colors are so lovely and I like that it’s perfect for the season.

  18. Multisticks for the win! I love that you can use this as a blush or a lippie, depending on your mood and you have 2! This is definitely worth getting!

  19. Bite beauty has some of the best lip products! They are always so soft and the colors are always so pretty!

  20. Reesa Lewandowski says

  21. militaryfamof8 says

    Never heard of this love bite brand. But looks like a great product! I will surely love this lip set!

  22. Melissa Chapman says

    Thanks for showing me a new lip product that I need to try. I really liked the cashew and the gelato so I will tell everyone about these.

  23. mommadjane says

    I love those nude and light pink shades. I also love how well put together and pretty that box is.

  24. I have never tried any of these colors but they look pretty! I will have to stop by Sephora and check them out.

  25. Brittany Muddamalle says

    Ooh all of these colors look amazing. I love the pinks and reds like that. The shimmer in it is pretty too.

  26. Roxanne Ferber says

    Oh I love all of these colors and the packaging is so pretty too! I will have check these out soon!

  27. I’ve been seeing this set everywhere and am absolutely mesmerised by it! Ironically I’m all over these shades although I do agree that they are not flattering on many skin tones I still love these muted tones and wear a lot of lip colours similar to the browner shade of the two. Beautiful! x

  28. Nice colors! These are pretty and looks like they could be flattering on anyone.

  29. Jalisa Marie says

    I’ve only ever tried one lip product from Bite Beauty and it was amazing. I’m so glad to keep seeing their products.

  30. Rachel Catherine says

    Those are some interesting shades. I don’t think they would be for me. I agree with you about the lavender grey especially.

  31. Claire Lee says

    I love that kit! super cute and I really like the rose lip one!

  32. I have a really hard time with lipstick. I only like a few very neutral shades, but I can never seem to get them to not bleed into my skin…I think I need better lipstick…or to learn how to use a lip liner 🙂

  33. This is my first time hearing about Bite Beauty. After reading your post, I am intrigued and can’t wait to try the lipstick. Thanks for sharing.

  34. I’ve never heard of this one before but I want to try it! This would also make a great gift to my mom!
