Last year, I remember falling for Bite Beauty Cashmere Lip Cream in Sancerre shortly after it came out. The color was to die for, but I held off and eventually decided I didn't really need to buy another bright lip product I wouldn't wear very often...
A few months back though, I definitely changed my mind. After having success with their Agave Lip Mask and loving my custom lipstick, I decided I just had to get Sancerre.
The Sephora site describes Sancerre as a pinky red, and I think it is my perfect pinky red shade! Like the other Bite products I've tried, the formula is quite brilliant. It is light, but long wearing, slightly hydrating and scent free - all qualities I LOVE in my lip products.
I have to note that EVERY time I have worn this, I get tons of compliments on the color. The color lasts on me for at least 4-5 hours even with light snacking and drinking water. It can even make it through meals decently, though I typically wipe off as much as I can prior to eating out of habit. I do have to mention that it took me 10 swipes with makeup remover to remove that swatch off my arm...
When my friend Gummy posted her review of Sancerre and another shade from the range, she mentioned that the applicator was really a deal breaker for her. I do have to agree that the applicator makes it difficult to apply with a clean edge, but I'm not terribly opposed to using a lip brush or cleaning it up afterwards.
For those of you who can't deal with the applicator, I recommend taking a look at the shade Quince in their Luminous Creme Lipstick or High Pigment Pencil. Based on swatching, the two shades are very similar!
I love the concept of Bite Beauty - ingredients that you can eat - and can't wait to try more of the brand. What do you think of Bite Sancerre? Have you tried this or any other product from Bite? I'd love to know!
