I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect everyday lip color since my beloved Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick in the Warm Caramel shade was discontinued. I tried many different brands—and everything from lipstick to gloss—but nothing compared to the shimmery pinkish-nude hue that highlighted my lips so well.
Last weekend, I stopped at Sephora in desperate need of a decent lip moisturizer (these frigid winter days are wreaking havoc on my lips). While I may have struck out in that department, I stumbled on the display for Bite Beauty before leaving the store. I have tried a few products from Bite in the past—the Agave Lip Mask, Agave Lip Balm, Agave Sugar Lip Scrub, and some of their lipsticks in trial sizes—and I have liked them all. So, when I saw they had a Crystal Crème Shimmer Lip Crayon in almost the same shade as my old Neutrogena, I decided to give it a try.
At $24, I had high hopes—and Bite definitely delivered. I love the Rosé Glacé shade, which is a shimmering peachy pink with rose pearl. The color lasts through most of the day and doesn’t dry my lips out. The lip crayon is vegan, cruelty-free, and gluten-free, and is infused with orange peel wax and grape skin extract, which seems to be helping with the dryness.
Overall, I think I have finally found my new everyday lip color. Thank you Bite Beauty for ending the search.
