BITE Beauty Maple Matte Crème Lipsticks | Maple Collection


Bite Maple Matte Crème Lipstick (0.15 oz.) individually retail for $28 CAD and are available in 5 shades. They are said to be "a limited-edition [Canada exclusive] lipstick collection, inspired by Fall's beauty and the changing colors of the Canadian Maple."

Braised Maple is described as a deep red. [LE]
Candied Maple is described as a true red. [LE]
Mulled Maple is described as a brown red. [LE]
Sugared Maple is described as a deep plum. [LE]

"Hand-made in BITE’s Toronto Artisinal Lipstick Factory, each shade is infused with the deliciously scent of maple, and each long-wearing fall color is made with organic fruit butters for a creamy and lush, non-drying, matte burst of highly-pigmented color. Its unique matte cream formula is enriched with a mix of pigments, powders, and Japanese silica—leaving lips with a velvety, soft-focus finish."

If you're new to the brand here are some facts: Bite is exclusive to Sephora and their products are free of petrochemicals. They are also organic and all-natural. 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 their signature matte black tube with a silicone texture. They all have a subtle maple scent that can be noticed on initial application, but not tasted. Can we have real talk for a second here though, who wouldn't want a maple scented/flavored lipstick? Seriously, applying these makes me crave a Tim Horton's Maple Dip donut like nobody's business!

Braised Maple is a medium-dark, red brown with warm undertones and a creamy, satin finish. This shade applied smoothly, evenly, fully opaque and had excellent, rich pigmentation. It had a slightly thicker, creamy consistency that was comfortable and moisturizing when worn. Braised Maple lasted +6 hours and left behind a stain. (5/5) 
Candied Maple is a medium, tangerine red with warm undertones and a satin-matte finish. It applied smoothly, evenly and had ultra rich, opaque pigmentation. This shade was slightly more matte than the rest of the shades, but was still creamy and extremely comfortable on the lips. Candied Maple wore well for +6.5 hours before fading. (5/5) 
Mulled Maple is a dark, burgundy red with warm undertones and a creamy, satin finish. This shade applied smoothly, richly pigmented but the color did tend to grab to imperfections and dry patches. This caused it to look darker in those certain areas and slightly uneven. However, proper preparation and a lip liner easily fixed this issue—especially for a more crisp edge. Mulled Maple lasted +5 hours and left behind a stain. (5/5) 
Sugared Maple is a medium-dark berry with cool undertones and a creamy, satin finish. It applied smoothly, evenly, semi-opaque and richly pigmented. This shade had a creamy consistency that was comfortable to wear, but would be best paired with a lip liner for a full, opaque coverage. Sugared Maple wore well for +5.5 hours and left behind a stain. (5/5)

Overall these lipsticks are ultra pigmented, lightly moisturizing, comfortable to wear and smell absolutely outstanding! As most of you know, Bite Beauty make some of favorite lip products and this exclusive collection was no exception. They did a great job of capturing the beautiful colors of autumn trees—this is a Canadian brand, after all. So, if you happen to be from "The Great White North" or you have access to these lipsticks, I highly recommend picking up at least one shade, no questions asked!
(**Shades may contain Carmine and Red Lake 6, 7, 28, 33 and 40 Pigments)
