I mentioned in my Cocosa post that I’d been introduced to Bite, who are a brand that only create products for the lips. Very occasionally I develop a soft spot for a brand, usually because I love what they have to offer but also because I love the concept and ideas behind the brand. All of the above applies to Bite, as I’m really taken with the various lip products they have to offer and I’ll definitely be trying more; my current obsession is their Spring Cleaning Trio set with contains all the things you need to get your lips in good condition for the warmer months. My lips are always the wrong side of dry, so I need this in my life!
Those who attended the Cocosa event and had a lip makeover with Bite were given a goody bag which contained the colour they were matched to and a couple of other goodies which I thought I’d share.
First up we have the Line and Define Lip Primer which is pretty self-explanatory; it’s a lip primer in a pencil form that’s easy to apply and works as a really good primer for lipstick, especially if you’re like me and prone to dryness and the little flaky bits.
Unfortunately I had very dry lips when I took the swatches of the lipsticks so apologies for showing slightly unpleasant, up-close images of them!
Next up is the Lush Lip Tint which is an absolute dream to apply and wear. The shade I have is Lychee which looks a bit too brown/beige in the tube for my liking, but thankfully it comes out a pretty, gentle, nude pink that’s a really lovely colour for day time.

I was given two of the High Pigment Pencils and the first one is Chablis which is the shade I was matched too. It’s incredibly flattering as it’s within the limits of the natural colour of my lips, so it adds a bit of colour, warmth and definition without being too overboard. I really love this colour at the moment and I’m wearing it daily.

Last is the other High Pigment Pencil which is in the shade Pomegranate. This is a seriously bright, blue toned red that’s really very strong on the lips; it’s not something I would wear too regularly unless I was dressing down the rest of my make-up, but it’s still a lovely bright colour with an amazing texture and great payoff.

So these were the items that proved to be my first introduction to Bite and there’s not one thing I don’t either really like or love. There’s a massive range of colours available, some of which are currently featuring in one of Cocosa’s flash sales here, so if you’re a lip freak like me then it’s definitely worth a look.
