Bite Beauty Lippies | Hate em or Love em?

Up until a few weeks ago, I had never heard of Bite Beauty. I was shopping around in Sephora and I was just looking for something small to add to my basket. I came across the lipstick duos and thought they were super cute, so I had to try them out! I bought the duo in Scarlet/Mulberry and am I glad I did! Bite Beauty is a new favorite of mine! Let’s get into a review of the lippies that I have bought from this brand!

High Pigment Pencil in Tannin, $24

I went to Sephora the other day with the intent to purchase the Bite Beauty Lip Crayon in Aubergine. But, as I was swatching the colors on my hands, I swiped Tannin and said to myself, “OMG! This is the one! You have to get this one!” And so, I did! It is described as a “deep poppy red” and I think that is a spot on description! It is definitely a very deep red and that is what made me fall in love with the color! The pigment is extremely rich and just gorgeous on! In addition, application is so smooth and the formula is extremely moisturizing…which is always a plus when it comes to lipsticks, in my opinion. Also, since it’s starting to cool down, this is the perfect deep red for winter. So, if you’ve been looking for a deeper red, this is the one to go with!

Creme Lipstick Duo in Scarlet/Mulberry, $14
   I actually did a review of this lippie a few weeks ago when I purchased it, so click here to read all about it. I guess since I am talking about it for a second time within a few weeks, that tells you just how amazing I think Bite Beauty is!

Red Lips That Are To DIE For!

Everyone needs a good red lip. Red lips are classic and can be worn year round. The good thing about red lippies is that no two reds are the exact same. Which means, you can NEVER have too many reds. With that being said, get into a review of some of my favorite red lippies!

Wet n Wild Beauty MegaLast Lip Color in Stoplight Red, $1.99

This was one of the first lip colors I purchased from Wet n Wild and I have been in love ever since. I purchased it after doing some research online and finding an article saying that this particular lip color was a dupe of MAC Ruby Woo…and it is. However, it is not matte like Ruby Woo. It has a more satin finish, which I LOVE! This shade of red is more of a true red and that is what I love about it. It has awesome staying power, it barely fades after drinking or a light meal. If I had to choose, this would probably be my second favorite red.

My Beauty Addiction Luxury Matte Lipstick in Salsa, $9.50

Ooo la la! I so love this red! I saw it on a model on MBA’s IG page and had to have it!  To see my full review of this lippie, click here.

MAC Lipstick in MAC Red, $17.00
Soooo this is my GO TO RED! I wear this lipstick at least three times a week! It is super moisturizing and the perfect red for summer or winter. It has a very smooth, satiny application. The pigment in this lip color is very rich. The only downfall to this lippie is that it fades completely after eating. Bummer….but, it doesn’t stop this from being my favorite!

Julep Full Coverage Lip Crayon in Cardinal Red, $20.00 

I received this lip crayon in my first Julep subscription box. I tried it on and fell in love. It has a very smooth application and the color for this one is also very rich. I don’t wear this color very often because I forgot I had it, but, I will be wearing it much more often now that I have rediscovered it!

NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick in Snow White, $4.00

I bought this lipstick from Target last weekend and am I glad I did! For this lipstick to only be $4, the quality is amazing! I applied this lipstick around 7 AM, ate lunch around 12:30 or 1, and the lipstick had barely faded. It looked almost as good as it did when I applied it that morning (head over to my Instagram (@jewellslipsandtips) to see a picture). This is a slightly deeper red, which makes it perfect for the cooler months. I will definitely wear this lippie out this winter!
