Bite Beauty Luminous Crème Lipstick Palomino Review Swatches

Banish Chapped Lips with BITE Beauty Luminous Crème Lipstick in Palomino

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?

Bite Beauty Luminous Crème Lipstick Palomino Review SwatchesOut 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?

    Oh wow, I’m loving that shade, hun! It’s so vibrant and intense, and whilst I’ve never heard of this brand, your review makes me want to check it out. I love how hydrating this is! Wonder if it’s available in the UK? <3

      I don’t think it’s available in the UK, I THINK it’s only available in the US and Canada, but I might be wrong! 😉

    I haven’t tried anything Bite Beauty yet, but you really should go for these fuchsia shades more often. They do suit you a lot, not only throughout spring.

    I have a mini lipstick duo from BITE Beauty and while I love them both, I almost never use them because I’m wearing liquid lipsticks almost everyday. You just reminded me to pull them out from my lipstick graveyard and that shade is freaking stunning on you.

    I haven’t seen them in the stores so unfortunately I haven’t given it a try yet. This lipstick sounds like a perfect product for these cold days, my lips get dry so this would make wonders. Fuchsia looks gorgeous on you!

    The shade is stunning! I haven’t really tried any of Bite Beauty’s lipsticks, but I do have a little mini lipstick from Bite that came as a gift with purchase. I wasn’t too fussed on the shade, but I might try it out for the formula and then pick a shades that suits x

    Oh man, one of my first blog posts (actually, my 2nd ever for Floraful) was the Bite Beauty Creme Lipstick in the shade Zin! I found it too sheer though. Palomino looks absolutely gorgeous. I am willing to give it another chance with other shades though. Beautiful! I do remember how I loved how moisturizing it was.

I also don’t know of a lipstick that’s long-lasting and moisturising at the same time. – Beauty, Skin and Hair Care Haul
