Today we meet Cava, my first ever Bite Beauty product! I picked up this little gem a while ago at the Sephora VIB Rouge holiday event and let me tell you, it was a fantastic choice! Bite Beauty’s Luminous Creme Lipstick in Cava is truly a unique shade and despite my ever growing lipstick collection, I don’t have anything else quite like it. I knew from the beginning that this was a product that I had to review for you guys!
OVERALL REVIEW: 8.25
Packaging: Grey lipstick tube that feels sightly velvety in your hand. The tip of the tube is shaped differently for reds, neutrals, pinks and berries. 8/10
Longevity: Good, especially for a cream lipstick! Expect at least 4 hour, if not more. 9/10
Application: Uber creamy upon application. Glides over lips like butter and is easily opaque. 8/10
Texture: Very creamy and moisturizing with a slightly wet looking finish. 8/10
The Bite Beauty line retails at Sephora and you can purchase the Luminous Creme Lipstick formula for $24. While strolling past the Bite Beauty display at my local Sephora, the stunningly unique Cava caught my eye and I stopped immediately to gawk and swatch it. It was truly gorgeous. But did I want to spend $24 on a single lipstick? I wasn’t so sure about that so I moseyed around for a while thinking on it before deciding that I did in fact need this lipstick. Cava is a beautiful lilac beige shade with slightly grey undertones and there is something about this color that I just adore.
So what about the formula? One thing that I immediately noticed with this lipstick is that there is no scent or fragrance, which seems rare lately. Fragrance doesn’t bother me but for those that are bothered by it, this could be a great option! At first you get that slightly waxy taste of the lipstick itself but that quickly fades away to nothing. The Bite Beauty Luminous Creme Lipsticks, as the name suggests, feel amazingly creamy and light upon application and that creaminess lasts for a decent amount of time. After approximately 3-4 hours my lips do start getting a little dry with this product but that’s easily remedied by reapplying. The finish is very creamy and almost slightly wet looking. I dig it!
The color lasts a surprisingly long time, especially for such a creamy lipstick. When it comes to lighter colors like this, I never really expect them to last well but every time I would check on Cava, it would surprise me by still being very much there! I’d say you can expect a solid 4 hours or more of wear with this shade.
On to the swatches of Bite Beauty’s beautiful Cava!
The first photo of Cava on my lips was only Cava but for today’s look, I decided to pair it with MAC’s lip pencil in Soar. For the rest of this look I used my Anastasia Contour Kit and Brow Powder Duo, the Urban Decay Vice 2 Palette, Sugarpill’s Burning Heart Palette, Lit Cosmetics True Romance glitter, House of Lashes Siren lashes and Sigma’s blush in Heavenly.
And here’s a bonus eye picture because I was pretty pleased with my eye makeup today! 😛
So have you guys tried any products from Bite Beauty yet? What are your thoughts on Cava’s unique color?
