Bite Beauty Matte Crème Lip Crayon in Sweety

Bite Beauty recently launched their new range of Matte Crème Lip Crayon, a limited edition lipstick formulated with citrus peel wax for a hydrating and matte finish. And because I love me some Bite Beauty lipsticks, I couldn't resist buying one of the 6 shades!

Sweety is a coral pink with a semi-matte finish. It's highly pigmented and opaque. The finish is matte, but it has a creamy texture so it doesn't look completely matte like a MAC Retro Matte lipstick. It's definitely more matte than any other Bite Beauty lipstick I have tried though.

The color is gorgeous and looks amazing with a tan, it has enough coral to add some warmth in it without being too bright or orangey even on pale skin tones.

It has a citrusy scent, so if you didn't like the smell of others Bite Beauty lipsticks, you might like this one.  

However, I couldn't find a way to wear it without accentuating my fines lines. I tried over a light coat of lipbalm, a good lip primer (MAC Prep + Prime Lip) but nothing worked. It just doesn't look good, I need to rub my lips together every 30 minutes because it settle in the fine lines.

To be fair though, my lips are naturally very 'wrinkly' so this is not a new problem for me. Some lipsticks works, not this one. The staying power was great but not phenomenal, it felt dry and looked a bit chalky on my lips after 4 hours.

Sweety is lighter and less orangey than MAC Party Parrot. MAC Chatterbox is less coral and has a glossy finish. Maybelline Fuchsia Flash looks nothing like Sweety, but I wanted to include it so you could see the difference with a bright cool toned pink.

Overall, I think it's a beautiful color for the summertime and you will probably love it if your lips are much more smooth than mine. It's just how mine are, and this lipstick didn't work for me.

The Bite Beauty Matte Crème Lip Crayon in Sweety retail for 28$ CDN for 1.56g. Grab it now if you want it because it's a limited edition!
