Since we’re all thinking holiday gifts, I wanted to share two Bite Beauty lip products that I bought recently and have mentioned in at least one of my other posts:
- Best Bite Remix: Mini-Pencil Set
- Luminous Creme Lipstick Duos
I was late to Bite Beauty, but I really wanted to try this brand especially for lipstick. Bite Beauty is a natural, “better-for-you” brand, and I find that especially important for makeup that I wear on my lips and may end up ingesting.
I bought both of these products this fall when they were introduced for the holiday season. They’re a wonderful way to affordably get to know Bite Beauty lippies.
Best Bite Remix
This holiday red gift-ready collection contains four mini versions of BITE’s High Pigment Pencil in a purse-sized tin compact.
Inside the flip-top rubberized case, there’s a mirror.
The set is perfect for travel or for home. For me, it was a great introduction to Bite Beauty lip pencils.
The set has two shades from the permanent collection – Pomegranate, a perfect bright red, and Rhubarb, a plum-rose as well as the new limited-edition holiday shades Winterberry, a deep raspberry, and Sablé, a peachy nude.
Right now, I’m wearing Winterberry, and most days when I’m doing errands around town, I’ll wear the nude shades Rhubarb or Sable.
I love these pencils, though I’m not sure why Bite Beauty calls them pencils because they look like crayons to me. I guess it’s because they have another lip product that they call a crayon. The pencils twist up. They are easy to apply, with full coverage in one swipe. Neither hydrating nor drying, they last for a few hours on me.
The tin with the four shades, each 0.05 oz., is priced at $25.
When I was at Sephora during the VIB event, I noticed the Lipstick Duos that are packaged almost like Christmas tree ornaments or as pre-packaged gifts with lip-shaped gift tags that you can hang on a tree if you so desire. They come in a cute box that shows the dual ended lipstick inside.
There are 3 shades pairs that you can wear individually or mix to create your own shade:
- Vivid: Palomino – vibrant magenta – and Violet- vibrant purple
- Neutral: Musk – cool muted pink brown – and Lychee – light cool toned pink
- Reds: Scarlet – deep burgundy – and Poppy – apple red
I passed on the Vivid duo, and I bought the Neutral and Reds for myself and another Neutral duo to give as a gift. Like the pencils, they are easy to apply, are neither hydrating nor drying, and they last a few hours on my lips.
Each duo has 0.05 oz. of lipstick on each end of the charcoal grey, rubberized tube. And each duo is priced at $12.
The duos are also part of a larger very limited edition Mix ‘N Mingle Lip Minis Collector’s Edition that includes 10 lippies including the Lush Fruit Glosses and Matte Creme Lip Crayons that are different from the lip pencils above. Each of the Lip Minis components sells individually for $12, too.
It may be a little late in the game for these limited edition holiday sets, but see if you can find them. They are great values and make great gifts!
