Bite Beauty Lush Lip Trio- Review and Swatches
The Bite Beauty Lush Lip Trio is one of the things that I ventured out for on Black Friday this year. I usually do not partake in the chaos of Black Friday, but since the hubs and I are by ourselves in LA, we decided to go out just for fun. I had seen online that this little lip gloss trio was going to be on sale at Sephora for $10, but missed out on the ability to buy it via Sephora.com. We stopped by Sephora on our mall adventure, and low and behold, they actually had it! This was the only thing I bought from Sephora and it was totally worth the trip to the mall. I know that this set is no longer available, but all three of these glosses are in Bite Beauty's permanent collection, so I thought I'd give you guys my thoughts on them (and swatches, of course).
Bite Beauty's Lush Fruit Lip Glosses (the official name) are not the most talked about, but they actually are really fantastic. I think a lot of people talk about them being really sticky and therefore, they're not as loved as their other products. I agree that these lip glosses are extremely sticky when you first apply them. In fact, I found that they are actually a little hard to spread properly on to your lips, particularly because the applicator pretty long and flexible. But, once they are on, they sort of melt into your lips. After a few minutes, it feels completely normal and comfortable.
The full-sized glosses come with .11oz of product and have a really delicious fruity scent to them (as the name would suggest). They also taste alarmingly good, which is ok since all their products are made with food grade ingredients! Totally safe to (accidentally) ingest. The 3 colors that came in this set are Rambutan, Currant, and Strawberry.
Rambutan is a really light nude color. It's lovely on it's own if you just want something to throw on your lips so they aren't naked. I also enjoy wearing this over nude lipsticks.
Strawberry is a very light pink. It's the most pigmented of trio, but still is very sheer. It looks great over light pink or nude lipsticks.
Currant is a really sheer plum color. It's less pigmented than I would have expected from seeing the tube.
Overall, I really enjoy the formula of the Lush Fruit Lip Glosses. However, I don't necessarily feel like the full size would be worth the price tag of $22 per tube. I enjoy having this little trio and I will definitely use them all up, but then I'll go back to my trusty NYX Butter Glosses. Also, if there are any sets in the future, such as the Deconstructed Rose collection they had several months back, I will probably pick it up. The sets are worth it to me, but I won't be buying any of these glosses for full price.
I hope you enjoyed this little review! Let me know if you've tried any of Bite Beauty's Lush Fruit Lip Glosses and if you felt the same way I did about them.
