Bite Beauty Cashmere Lip Cream Review & Swatches


This is my first ever experience with Bite Beauty and I have to say- I am stinkin' impressed with this brand! Not only are they focused on using natural ingredients, they have a wide range of amazing shades that do not disappoint. 
The product I tried out today was the Cashmere Lip Creme in the shade 'Sherry'. If you are interested in hopping on the orange lipstick train this season, this shade is for you! It's the perfect vibrant reddish orange that is bright, but still wearable. 




When Bite chose the name 'Cashmere'- they weren't kidding. This stuff feels so smooth and virtually melts into your lips. The waxes, butters, and high pigment concentration mix perfectly in this formula to give you amazing coverage without feeling heavy or greasy. The unique wand / applicator is just right for spreading the product on evenly and even giving you a smooth, straight lip line.




Ingredients: Organic Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil**, Acacia Decurrens Wax*, Jojoba Wax*, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Wax*, Polyglycerin-3*, Silica*, Natural Flavor*, Carmine (Ci 75470)*, Trans-Resveratrol*, Vitis Vinefera (Grapeseed) Oil*, Siraitia Grosvenori (Monk Fruit)*. May Contain: Mica (Ci 77019)*, Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891)*, Iron Oxides (Ci 77491, Ci 77492, Ci 77499)*, Fd&C Blue No. 1 (Ci 42090), Fd&C Yellow No. 5 (Ci 19140), Fd&C Yellow No. 6 (Ci 15985), Fd&C Red No. 40 (Ci 16035), D&C Red 6 (Ci 15850), D&C Red 7 (Ci 15850), D&C Red 28 (Ci 45410), Red 33 Lake (Ci 17200), Manganese Violet (Ci 77742)*. *Natural. **Certified organic.

Although the color I tried was very bright, the matte finish makes it so beautiful and surprisingly wearable- and it stays in place. I think i'm in love! What did you think about this lip product? Have you tried anything from Bite Beauty? Let me know in the comments on the video and let's chat!
