Bite Beauty Lip Love Ultimate Lip Rescue Kit | Review

“bite “bite For Christmas one of my best friends gave me this Bite Beauty Lip Love Ultimate Lip Rescue Kit as part of my present. I was really excited to receive it since I have yet to try any products from Bite Beauty but I've really been wanting to! Bite Beauty products are all-natural and formulated with food-grade ingredients, so the occasional time you get a little bit of lip products in your mouth you know you won't be ingesting any chemicals when using their products. Included in this kit are 2 Lush Lip Wipes, BB for Lips in Tawny, the Agave Lip Mask, and the Whipped Cherry Lip Scrub.

The Lush Lip Wipes are individually wrapped pre-moistened wipes that you can use to remove a lip colour, and they also prep the lips for applying a new lip colour. They're supposed to be hydrating and also mattify lips before applying a lip product. I have yet to try these, but sometimes when I'm out all day long and wearing a bold lip, I like to switch to a more low-maintenance nude lip colour later in the day. I'll be putting these in my makeup bag I carry with me on-the-go for next time I do a lip colour switch while I'm out!

The BB for Lips in Tawny is a sheer nude-pink lip balm. It's said it can be used for hydrating and priming the lips, and it also has SPF 15. I've used this throughout the past week or so and it feels really nice on the lips. I haven't tried using it as a primer for other lip products specifically, but I have applied lip products while still having a little bit of this remaining on my lips and I haven't noticed anything slipping or sliding off my lips. It also smells great! This would be great for "no makeup" makeup days too as it is hydrating and comfortable to wear but also gives the lips a sheer wash of colour!

I was really excited to try the Agave Lip Mask as it's definitely one of the most raved-about products from Bite Beauty and I've been enjoying it! Once I managed to squeeze some out of the tube (seriously, it was hard to do), I applied this super-thick balm over my lips before going to sleep. I've done this the past few nights now and in the morning I don't have dry, cracked lips I tend to wake up with if I don't apply a thick balm before bed. I do really like this and it works great, but I think I still prefer my Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm. The Jack Black balm gives me the same results when wearing it overnight, but application is a lot easier (especially to do when I'm really lazy at night) and the price is much lower. Both are great products though! I'm glad I got to try the Agave Lip Mask in this small sample size tube and I will still continue to use it.

Lastly, the Whipped Cherry Lip Scrub is a cherry-flavoured mousse balm infused with exfoliating beads and is used to smooth and condition the lips. First off, this smells incredible. However, as a lip scrub it is not super effective. I'm used to using more abrasive scrubs like the ELF Lip Exfoliator or the LUSH Lip Scrubs, so when I first tried this it more felt like I was applying a lip balm that had a few beads in it. I'll use this on days when my lips are pretty smooth already and don't need much exfoliating done just to further smooth the surface before applying a lip product, but on days when my lips need serious exfoliating I'll be sticking with my ELF Lip Exfoliator! The smell of this alone makes me want to continue to reach for this though and it'll probably be good to use in the spring and summer when everything isn't so dry!

Overall this was a great kit to try a few lip care products from Bite Beauty. I don't believe this kit is still available online, but I have seen it in a couple Sephora stores lately so you might be able to find it there. But all of the products included in this kit are permanent, so if there's 1 or 2 specific items that are jumping out to you, you can still get them!

Have you tried any products from Bite Beauty? What are your favourite products from them?

  2. Their packaging is definitely on point, but I'm not super impressed with the pigmentation. The lip scrup looks especially pretty.

  3. I'm a huge fan of Bite Beauty actually, I think their lip products are some of the best around! While I like that the Agave Lip Mask is in a hygienic tube the formula is so difficult to squeeze out! I really like their Luminous Creme Lipsticks, the formula on them are excellent!
