Jouer Cosmetics Tan Lines vs Bite Beauty Gold Crème Lip Gloss

img_6672-copy Jouer Cosmetics Tan Lines ($16) vs Bite Beauty Gold Crème Lip Gloss ($22) - I've already reviewed both of these lip "toppers" but a few of you asked for a comparison so figured it'd be best to look at them side by side.


These are both non-gritty, lip toppers that you can wear on their own or on top of another lip color.

Bite Beauty Gold Crème Lip Gloss Review, Photos, Swatches On A Woman of Color - Holiday Red and Gold Lips

Last week, I showed you quick swatches of the Gold Crème Lip Gloss from Bite Beauty on different skin tones. Today, I wanted to follow that up with some lip swatches and a video so you can see it in action. The lip gloss on its own is stunning - very pigmented; non-tacky - the only thing is it doesn't apply as evenly as I would have liked on its own (see video and photos below). However, you aren't going to be able to see that when paired with a lip color as a base. img_1363-ccc img_1350-ccc 7f3ce141-5352-4609-88b6-3170e486ce8e

Here is a video of me applying a red lip pencil as a base and applying the gold lip gloss as a topper. I recommend patting the Bite Beauty lip gloss on your lips as opposed to smearing the wand across so you get more of a color payoff and you won't "shift" the products on your lips.

Available: This is limited edition and currently in stock at Sephora for $22.

Other products used: Clarins Moisture Replenishing Lip Balm - I added this for today's lip swatch because I received so many comments and questions about the Farasli one that I showed in previous videos. Note - I am working on an entire video on this for you guys, but I use a beauty oil to keep my lips healthy and moisturized during the day and especially when I am doing lip swatches for you.

The Farasli Rose Gold Elixir is a super fancy beauty oil that you can use in your moisturizer, lips, skin etc. I paid $55 for the 30 mL bottle. The ingredients include Rosehip Seed Oil, Pumpkin Seed Oil, 24k Gold, Vitamin E, Lemongrass Oil and Orange Peel Oil.

Now when you guys see me using it in my videos, please know that it is a good product - it does what I need it to do without any complaints as to its performance - but keep in mind that I am only using it now to use it up. Would I repurchase this again? Not for $55! I'll admit that I feel for the YouTube and Instagram hype around it and the allure of the gold flakes. The gold flakes or 24K Gold in this case do absolutely nothing beneficial for your skin or lips.

Again, I will have an entire separate review on lip products that I use but I wanted to address this really quickly. Oh, and the Clarins Moisture Replenishing Lip Balm is something that I purchase religiously and will continue to do so.

Bite Beauty Gold Crème Lip Gloss - First Review & Swatches On Different Skin tones

Excuse me as I interrupt our regularly scheduled program - but I just had to when I opened this Gold Crème Lip Gloss from Bite Beauty. img_1363-ccc img_1350-ccc

Literally. Liquid. Gold. I will update you all once I have do official lip swatches but my friend @manniefique and I swatched this so you can see how it pops on different skin tones.

[wpvideo LfzkWWyC]

I was mesmerized from the moment I took this out of the box. There is no other lip topper or dazzleglass in my collection or that I know of that comes near the amount of shimmer and sparkle in this. I wore it around the house (for about 45 minutes as I'm typing this) and it's not sticky or gritty at all nor does it have a scent.

Again. I will update you all with a better swatch and some looks as soon as I can but I wanted this to get up while it was still in stock (and I was able to get a back up of it)

Update: You can view a video of me using this on my lips here

Bite Beauty Luminous Crème Lipstick Trio For $24 ($72 Value)

Yes, you read the title correctly. Last week, Bite Beauty offered an insane deal on their Luminous Crème Lipsticks on a trio set in Nude and Bold that offers a three of their bestselling cream lipsticks for the price of one. Normally, one full sized lipstick from this line would cost $24 but Bite was liquidating their remaining Luminous Cremes (which have been discontinued) and each full sized trio set came out to the price of one lipstick.  IMG_1880 ccc

The sets were available in two color families:

  • Nude - Musk, Retsina, Fig
  • Bold - Zivoli, Tannin, Mulberry

These lipsticks are incredibly soft and creamy. Here are swatches of each set taken in my studio (LED daylights).

 And because you know I'm a sucker for a deep red, I had to try out Tannin. It is such a soft lipstick that lasts about 3-5 hours on the lips (depending on what you eat/drink).

What do you think? Were you able to snag any of these trio sets?
