Bite Butter Cream Lipsticks

Cream, Caramel, Hazelnut, Moka

I have a few of the Bite Butter Cream Lipsticks that I previously shared HERE. I assumed these lipsticks would be less pigmented and lighter weight, like most other Butter Cream formulas. Now that I’ve had a chance to swatch and test these out, that couldn’t be further from the truth. This is a pigmented and really long-lasting formula from Bite. The “handcut” or flat top was fine for my lower lip, but my upper is a bit thin and I think I’d have an easier time with a lip brush next time.

All of the shades are nude or neutral. I have noticed the colors are not quite accurate on Sephora, so you may want to swatch these in person. Below are the shades I have.

Cream – almond nude
Caramel – fleshy nude
Hazelnut – brown pink
Moka – warm dark brown

The  most flattering on my skin tone is the Hazelnut. I have a thing for brown-pink shades, so this is my jam! The Moka looks pretty too, it really isn’t too brown, but more of a brick-red with brown undertones. I can’t pull off Cream or Caramel, as light nudes make me look so washed out. I’m sure they would work on someone with a deeper or warmer skin tone.

The Bite Butter Cream Lipsticks lasted 5+ hours on me (without a lipliner) and that’s with eating and drinking. They are priced at $28 for 0.15oz, which is $4 more than the same size for the Bite Luminous Creme lipstick. What do you think about these? Any Bite Beauty Favorites?

FingerPaints First Edition + Rainbow Honey Glow Cloud

*affiliate links, I bought this*
FingerPaints First Edition is a gorgeous royal purple that dries to the prettiest satin finish. It’s not quite matte, not quite glossy. A gorgeous color, but a too thin formula that shows every little imperfection. I thought Rainbow Honey Glow Cloud, from my February mini mystery bag was the perfect topper to disguise my less than perfect purple!

I love how Glow Cloud has iridescent shards, and also micro shimmer. It adds so much dimension to any polish. The pictures above have only one coat of Glow Cloud, but you can build it up for more sparkle. What’s on your nails this week?

Butter London Moisture Matte Lipsticks Mush, Toff, MacBeth

The new butter LONDON Moisture Matte lipsticks have a fantastic creamy and long-lasting formula. They don’t feel dry or clingy by any means. The formula has a nice slip, which lasts about 4 hours on my lips even with drinking. Even once the light balm feeling is gone, the color is still going strong. The Moisture Matte lipsticks last over 6 hours for me, through meals too.

All shades are creamy and opaque in one gentle swipe. Primrose Hill Picnic is the least pigmented, but it really only takes two passes to get a bright purple opaque lip.

Blowing Raspberries, Loved Up, Dahling, and Ruby Murray are my picks for deep pink/berry lips that are perfect for winter.
