BITE Beauty Luminous Crème Lipstick Duo | Tangerine & Lingonberry


Bite Beauty Luminous Creme Lipstick Duo (0.10 oz.) individually retail for $12 USD ($15 CAD) and contains two shades (2 x 0.05 oz.) in each tube. It is said to be "a bite-sized lipstick duo of contrasting shades."

Tangerine is described as an orange. [LE]
Lingonberry is described as a fuchsia. [LE] 
"This mini duo of twist-up bullets offer neutral or vivid lips on the go. Wear them individually or layer to create your own custom look. With every application, antioxidant Resveratrol fights free radicals with potent long-term age-repair benefits. Each lipstick contains the Resveratrol equivalent of two glasses of red wine, reducing fine lines and wrinkles on and around the lip area over time."
The Luminous Crème Lipsticks retail for $24 USD ($28 CAD) and contain 0.15 oz. of product. Each duo contains $16 USD ($19 CAD) worth of product, so with that said, you are getting a good value. You're getting to try two shades for half the price of one regular sized, single tube.

If you're new to the brand here are some facts: Bite is exclusive to Sephora and their products are free of synthetics, polybutenes and petroleum byproducts. All lip products are made with nurturing food-grade ingredients that are healthy enough to eat! The founder believes, "You eat what you put on your lips, so your lipstick should be good for you."

The packaging is a matte black, double-ended tube with a silicone texture. These lipsticks have a slight citrus scent that can be notice once applied, but not tasted. The caps feature the name of the product, which my biggest concern is accidentally switching them around and confusing shades. I really like the overall design of the double-ended tubes, as they're a lot more convenient than individual miniature sizes.
Tangerine is a medium, vibrant orange crimson with hints of pink, warm undertones and a luminous finish. This shade applied smoothly, evenly, full opaque and had excellent, intense pigmentation. It was neither drying nor hydrating and left behind a faint stain. Tangerine wore well for +5 hours. (5/5)
Lingonberry is a medium-dark, vivid magenta with cool, blue undertones and a luminous finish. This shade applied smoothly, evenly, mostly opaque and had good pigmentation. I found the natural pigmentation of my lips did show through lightly in some areas, but it didn't make the lipstick look uneven. Lingonberry wore well for +5 hours and left behind a stain. (5/5)
Overall, both shades had excellent performance and color payoff. Despite them being brighter, bolder shades I can see them being easily wearable come springtime. I'm a huge fan of the Luminous Crème Lipstick formula and these two-in-one lipsticks are a great way of trying new shades for a low cost. Bite tends to release these dual-ended lipsticks quite often, but if for some reason you can't get your hands on them, I would highly recommend checking out the permanent line!
