Review & Swatches: Bite Beauty Define & Refine Lip Set

Bite Beauty Define & Refine Lip Set

Availability: Sephora
Price: $36.00

Company’s Description

This trio of universally wearable shades delivers exceptionally smooth, long-lasting color, and moisturizing coverage. Organic fruit butters soften and nourish lips with every use, while antioxidant-rich resveratrol fights free radicals and conditions around the lip line.

The Define & Refine Lip Set comes with 3 lip items: Lip Shine in Prosecco, High Pigment Pencil in Pomegranate, and Luminous Crème Lipstick in Rosè. This trio is sold exclusively at Sephora stores.

Packaging: 9/10

Bite packaging is defined by use of slate-colored, rubbery plastic (think NARS packaging, but a different color).

The lip gloss comes in a clear plastic tube with a doe-foot applicator. The lip pencil has a base that twists to expose more product as you use it up. The lipstick looks like any other, except that it has an engraved “B” in the side of the lipstick tube.

Quality: 9/10

The Lip Shine in Prosecco is a sheer nude color that goes on clear on the lips. The gloss is thicker than most I’ve tried, which gives it an unflattering texture. Plus, it gives you no color, and so amounts to a plain, basic lip gloss.

The High Pigment Pencil in Pomegranate is a bright, vibrant, classic red. The pigmentation is phenomenal and the pencil glides on smoothly, leaving your lips surprisingly moisturized.

The Luminous Crème Lipstick in Rosè is a peachy rose color, despite it looking like a pure red in the tube. The lipstick has good opacity and vibrant color. The finish is slightly uneven, but you can easily layer the product to even out the color. It is also a very moisturizing lipstick.

Ease of Use: 9.25/10

The lipgloss is clear, so you don’t have to worry about being precise. But the thick texture makes it drag on application. The lip pencil’s form makes application easy and you can draw precise lines around the mouth. The lipstick is creamy and so the color glides on easily. You do need to go slowly because the color is bright and will show any mistakes in application.

Price: 9/10

If you bought these items individually, you would pay a total of $68.00–almost double what you pay by buying this trio. On the other hand, I don’t think the lipgloss is worth the average of the $12 you’re paying for it in this kit.

Final Grade

    That’s a weird bunch of colors…the gloss sounds like junk! The lipstick and lip pencil sound nice though. The red pencil is so vibrant! How do they compare to Nars Matte/Gloss Velvet pencils?
    I really need to go by a Sephora, I hadn’t heard of this brand before either!
