The subject: Bite Beauty Cashmere Lip Cream in Sancerre

So we’ve covered both Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar as well as  MAC Lipmix. Now it’s time for Bite Beauty Cashmere Lip Cream,

I feel like my blog has become an Ode to Bite Beauty. But it’s with good reason! (And, no, they’re not paying me, I swear!) All the lip products from the Toronto-based company are made from food-grade ingredients, and each lipstick contains the amount of Resveratrol, the antioxidant found in red wine, found in five glasses of wine. So they’re good for you, as well. And I pretty much wear their Line and Define Lip Primer under everything. Including this!

The first time I saw the Cashmere Lip Creams in Sephora, this color called to me immediately. And when I saw the name, I was already sold. (I’ve not too long ago read A Moveable Feast and Hemingway mentioned drinking Sancerre a lot, and of course it’s so very French, so it has a soft spot in my heart.) But then one of the makeup artists asked me if I needed help, and she was wearing the most glorious color of lipstick, so I asked her what it was. She nodded at the Sancerre in my hand and said, “What you’re holding right there.” See? It was meant to be!

I know what you’re thinking. “It looks exactly like the OCC Lip Tar in Strumpet! Well, you’re close, but no cigar. They are similar, but while the Strumpet leans towards a plummy magenta, the Sancerre, described as a “pinkish red,” is very much a raspberry leaning magenta. Have a look and see if you can tell the difference.

The verdict: The color—gorgeous. The application—a little fiddly. (Here’s where it’s exactly identical to Strumpet!) The brush is a little strange shaped, which makes applying it neatly a little tricky. But what I did was use a lip brush to take the product off that brush, so I could apply it more easily. And it worked.

The Lip Tar is the most viscous of the 3 liquid lipsticks in the packaging, but the Cashmere Lip Cream doesn’t dry down as much as the other 2. It remains more creamy on your lips. And, yet, it also lasted me through a day in the city decently well. I took a photo before I reapplied so you could see.

I actually got complimented on the lip color by the receptionist at the place I had my interview, so I would say it was a success. (No word yet on the job, though.) However, I like lipstick more than working, so I’m glad to have this in my collection. 😉

There are 2 gorgeous reds in this line as well, Rioja and Port. (And I have 3 other reds by Bite, Pomegranate, Tannin, and a custom blend—hey, finding the perfect red requires investment!)

Have you tried Bite Beauty Cashmere Lip Cream? Any more recommendations for me?
