Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayon Aubergine

Hello Sweetpeas!  I am going to just jump right into my Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayon Aubergine review.  Bite Beauty has just introduced several new shades into their Matte Creme line.

My first Bite Beauty lip product was their High Pigment Pencil, and I fell in love.  This line uses natural food grade ingredients, and is full of resveratrol; again, a natural antioxidant.

My color of choice was Aubergine, which Bite describes as “Eggplant”.  (Bonus French lesson – the vegetable we Americans call eggplant is an aubergine in France!!!).  No matter which language, PURPLE!

My camera isn’t the best at capturing true colors, but it really does look more “purple” than in my photos.

The formula is very creamy.  I did notice a difference in texture compared to the High Pigment Pencil. But is it a real matte lipstick???

Ah, not the true purple/aubergine/eggplant I’d hoped for, but I DO love the color.  The formula isn’t what you may be used to in the matte lipstick arena; unlike a MAC retro matte, or NARS matte…this has a bit of “shine” to it….

As you can see, this photo does not look like a matte lipstick.  Though super pigmented, it is easy to apply, moisturizing, and comfortable to wear – without lip balm.  I got about 3-4 hours of wear, eating/drinking.

In my opinion, this is not a true matte lipstick.  I think the formula is similar to the High Pigment Pencil.  A touch on the shiny side.  But, I do love Bite Beauty!  And I am a fan of their lip products!!  I find this matte a bit lacking as a true matte formula.  It may be my color choice.  However, I will be using more Bite Beauty, and trying more matte pencils.

Regardless, is it a great pen!

Again, thanks for reading!  kxoxo

      I have been really impressed with Bite Beauty. They have the pretties Anoushka pinks also! Haha! I know what you mean about lip products, but I cannot help myself!!

      Bite is becoming one of my favorite lipsticks for sure! Girl, you aren’t kidding about real fall around here. It was mercilessly hot this past weekend, with no end in sight!

    Karen I love this color! I’m a fan of wine (in any form lol). I have also been wanting to try Bite Beauty so your review makes me feel better about a future purpose.

      I was hoping for a true matte, but I love the formula so much, it’s okay. I’ve heard the Girlactic matte lip paints are where it’s at. Looking into those now. Hoping to be able to swatch some at Rite-Aid stores here, but not sure they have a “special” prestige counter. We shall see….thanks for reading Wendy! How are Indy and Jade getting along?

      Yeah Lilly, it isn’t what we expect from a “true” matte formula. It was soft and shiny. Regardless, I love it and happy with it. Thanks for reading!

      Thanks Chels! It is fabulous, and while not a “true” matte finish, I really love it. Hope you’re settling into your new apartment and ready for school!
