Back to the ’90s with Bite Lip

’90s Lip with Bite

bite lip productsI was super excited when Influenster reached out to me and let me know that I’d have the chance to receive and review Bite products. I’ve been a huge fan of Bite lip products; if I were to be honest, they would probably be my fave lip products because of how pigmented and moisturizing their lipsticks are.

I was sent two lip pencils and two mini lipsticks. The pencil and lipsticks were both matching colors. The colors are 020 and 044. The colors were a little interesting…I wouldn’t say that they would be colors I would choose to wear on myself. 020 is a nude color that, on my skin tone, is basically a skin toned nude. When I tried it on, I looked a bit washed out. I think it would look better on someone with a lighter or darker skin tone than me, so that it shows a bit of contrast. On me, I kind of just looked like a corpse.

The other color, the 044, I was super excited about because it’s that almost ’90s brown. Remember in the ’90s when all the girls would line their lips in brown and brown lipstick was the cool thing to wear? Well, the minute I saw this lipstick, I was excited.

Until. . .until I actually tried it on. I guess there’s a reason I never wore brown lipstick. It just. . .did not look good on me. I looked like I made out with poop. Or. . .with a brownie. Or a chocolate cookie. Maybe it was my application or the clash with my skin tone, but it just did not look right on me.

So. . .let’s get to the rundown:

The colors. . .did not look good on me. However, Bite stayed true to its excellent formula and delivered on the creamyness and richness of the product. There was actually a moment where it was almost a bit too creamy and I had to blot and then reapply. I think a part of that is because I’ve gotten so used to matte lips now (LOVE the matte lip trend!) that a sheen or shine feels unnatural to me now. But, if you have drier lips, this is definitely your jam.

Even though I didn’t enjoy these lip products that much, Bite lip products still remain my favorite lips product brand (NARS a very close second).

If you’d like to shop this line, I’ve highlighted some of my fave funky colors below:

    I’ve never heard of Bite before but will have a look at them, I’m not overly keen on brown shades as only certain shades suit me but I love the mauve shade in the middle as that’s more my colour.

  • Karoliina Kazi

    Love those lip pencils and the colours! I’ll keep this brand in mind for sure.

  • Maya Lalosh

    Thanks for the honest review! I wonder why they sent you those colors? Perhaps they should have asked you your favorite shades or tried to work better with your skin tone!

  • Yeah, Im not crazy about those colors either. I do like Bites other funky colors. They work better for me.

  • So far so Sabine

    Seems like the perfect color to me actually, the nude – ish color is great for a day look!

  • Fillia Barden (www.WomanOfCour

    Never heard of the brand. I like their simple cute design!

  • Kamen Kamenov

    I really enjoy the design and the simplicity

  • I’ve bought Bite as gifts and they were a hit. I really like the design for gifting.

  • Fairytale Studios

    I love nude colors though the brown one which you like seems nice. I have observed actresses which brown lipsticks in the 90’s movies. What an observation.

  • Julie

    I wish you will find other lipsticks from Bite lip products that suites you. They have a beautiful design and they really have some interesting colors. I wont go with purple and black, red looks good haha

  • Emma Oxley

    I wanna see a photo with you with then on lol! Were they really that bad? I’m not sure I’d suit brown lipstick either but i like the look of the nude one

  • Ohhhhh perhaps my husband will sexily bite my lip if I use these! LOL!

  • Tamika Mapp

    I never heard of this company and I’m thinking about giving it a try, especially if they have purple. I like to layer the browns with a red to give it’s own unique color. I never wear it alone, because it doesn’t look right! Thanks for the review.

  • Anmaria Djong

    i actually love the colour of these lipstic. It looks natural and i love it. Will definitely check it out!
