Shine Crystal Bite Beauty Glitter Violet Glitter Lipstick ($ 24.00 for 0.06 oz) is a moderately dark lavender with silver specks and lavender pearl and a luster bigger. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, but could not be fully covered. The texture was light, thin but not sticky and emollient without being wet, although this shade is the most badly applied colors initially released. The color gravitated around the lips and did not apply uniformly. It lasted four hours and was slightly moisturizing when it was worn.

Preview of the formula
$ 24.00 / 0.06 oz. – $ 400.00 The ounce
The new formula is supposed to offer a shimmering and bold color both “long-wearing” and “smooth gliding”. The majority of shades exhibit semi-opaque to opaque pigmentation all at once. The texture is usually smooth and velvety, without feeling of moisture or cream color, but they do not slip because I used them for a full color. They have a semi-matte to matte finish in terms of gloss, but obviously, they have a little shimmer that goes from fine shimmer to shimmer with a weak to moderate shine. They managed to keep everything smooth because I did not notice the shimmer when I pressed my lips. The formula was nice to wear and lasted between four and six hours with me. They had a slight lemony scent with a very subtle, almost sweet taste (but I barely detected the taste).
They are inspired by the brand’s Matray Creme Lip Pencils, which are larger creamy and highly pigmented pencils, which have a more satin to semi-matte finish. In comparison, Shimmer lip pencils have a similar glide and comfort on my lips, but they have less creamy color and no satin sheen. They do not feel as hydrated as the Matray Creme Lip Pencils and, up to now, the Shimmer finish tends to wear slightly shorter.
Shimmer Crystal Cream Glaze Bite Beauty Lip Color ($ 24.00 for .06 oz.) Is a rich berry with cool shades and purple, bluish pearls. It had a medium pigmentation, where the base had a noticeable translucency, but seemed to apply quite uniformly, but the shimmer looked more “on the top” and did not seem to spread as evenly as for the other shades. The texture was similar to other shades: smooth, velvety but not wet, thinner but not sticky. It is well worn for five hours and is slightly hydrated over time.

Bite Beauty’s Shimmer Crystal Cream Ice Cream Fuchsia ($ 24.00 for 0.06 oz) is a deep fuchsia pink with subtle, cool undertones and a sparkling, slightly metallic finish. It had an almost opaque color cover that adhered evenly and smoothly to my lips. The consistency was light, thin but not sticky, and there was just a touch of emphasis on my lips on the more frosty finish. He stayed fine for five and a half hours and felt slightly hydrated for me.
