Influenster: Bite Matte Creme Lip Crayons

These Bite Lip Crayons were provided free from Influenster for testing purposes.

Bite lip products first grabbed my attention at Sephora a few years ago when they appeared in one of Sephora's lipstick collection holiday boxes. I was impressed with the edgy packaging, pigmented color and creamy consistency. The new Bite Matte Creme Lip Crayons meet that same standard.

Influenster sent three full sized shades in Cava, Glace, and Red Velvet. The lip crayons come in a slightly woven textured box.

The lip crayons are housed in a grey rubberized cylinder with a snap lid (be careful taking the lid off or you will scrap your perfectly pointed lippie) and a twist up bottom. 

These bad boys are nice. They remind me of a mash up of Nars Lip Pencils and Buxom's Full-On Lip Stick. The texture is creamy with a decent slip. The pointed tip makes for precise application and the longevity of wear impressed me. My lips never felt dry. Highly pigmented and easy to wear, these lip crayons won me over.

Red Velvet is a solid fire engine red. Maybe the slightest blue undertone. 

Glace has a dusky rose lean and is the perfect My Lips But Better shade. 

Cava is a lilac pink color with a slight coolness to it. On my lips, with my skintone it is way too light. It does give me a bad case of death lips. But more porcelain or much darker skin tones would totally rock it. 

Here in the sunlight you can see the slight sheen. It sits on the lips with more of a satin rather than a full on matte, which I love. These lip crayons house 0.05 ounces of product for $24.00 and comes in 19 shades at the moment. I like that these are twist up. Less product is lost. The Nars lip pencils have 0.08 ounces of product for $26.00, but a lot is lost during sharpening. The Buxom Full-On Lip Sticks have 0.03 ounces of product for $20.00. 

I would absolutely buy a Bite Matte Creme Lip Crayon and in fact, I am eyeing Blood Orange and Truffle. 

Do you use lip crayons? Have you tried Bite Beauty? Which of these shades would call to you?


  1. I am so jelly! I was so bummed when I didn't get picked for this box. This is the first ive heard about Bite beauty and the product looks amazing! Looks like I need to review more makeup for influenster :)

    1. I will be giving you Glacé since it is way too light for me. I think it will look great on your with your alabaster skin. And sister, yes. Please fill out those makeup surveys!!

    2. Be still my heart! I can't wait to try it on. Thank you so much sister! I'll be seeing you tomorrow :)

  2. Oooh, thanks for the rec! I love Nars and Buxom, so I may try these. :)

    1. Sure! I was over the moon when Nars was the birthday gift last year. I am excited about the Marc Jacobs gift too but the Nars lip pencils are so nice. These don't have the tingle that I get from Buxom but the wear is really nice.
