Although eyeshadows and I are having a moment these days, I’m definitely a lipstick girl at heart. That’s why, last time I was in the States, BITE Beauty held the top spot on the list of brands I absolutely had to check out. In case you didn’t know it, BITE is a Canadian brand that only focuses on lip products, which they handcraft one at a time with natural and organic ingredients… Sounds nice, doesn’t it?
Out of all the dreamy goodness in the BITE Beauty stand at SEPHORA Powell Street in San Francisco (A.K.A. heaven on earth), the lucky pick that traveled all the way back to Italy with me was the Luminous Crème Lipstick in Palomino. Even though the shade (a vibrant cool-toned fuchsia) and finish are not the ones I’d typically go for, I’ll put it out straight and simple: this lipstick is pure perfection. Wanna know why?
- It is made with food-grade ingredients that are good enough to eat and also contains resveratrol, a potent antioxidant, to keep your lips looking young in the long run.
- It is creamy without feeling heavy and makes your pout look juicy and plump.
- Thanks to all the nice oils and butters it contains, it feels incredibly moisturizing. If your reflection in the mirror evokes images of dried plums and crusty desert soil, this is the product for you, I honestly have never tried any other lipstick quite like it!
- It is very long-lasting. Yes, you read that right! Despite being creamy and moisturizing, Palomino lasts and lasts and leaves a pretty stain behind.
I’m running out of adjectives, folks, but the Luminous Crème Lipstick in Palomino is truly amazing! Out of all the great North American brands not available in our good Ol’ Continent, I think BITE Beauty is definitely one to check out should you ever cross the pond.
Have you ever tried anything from the BITE Beauty range? Is there a brand only available in your country that you think everyone should check out if they got a chance?
