BITE Beauty Opal Lip Gloss | Opal Collection


Bite Beauty Opal Lip Gloss (0.14 oz.) retails for $24 USD ($25 CAD) and is said to be "a transformational and pearlescent lip gloss in an opal shade for a slick of opalescent shine."

Opal Lip Gloss is described as a ultraviolet opalescent shine. [LE]

"Transformational and pearlescent, Bite Beauty’s Crème Gloss creates a lip look with ultraviolet dimension. Silky and nourishing, the two-tone pearl gloss can be worn alone or on top of any lip color for an alluring, pearlescent lip with high-shine and shimmer."
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 a clear tube with a rubberized, silicone cap. The applicator is an angled, velvet wide wand and it applies product easily—although, if you're layering this over a lipstick or colored lip product, you may want to use a lip brush to prevent color from transferring onto the applicator or into the tube. The gloss also has a sweet, fruity scent that can be noticed on initial application, but hardly tasted.


Opal is a sheer, pale white lavender with cool undertones and an opal, pearl finish. The texture wasn't overly sticky or tacky and it applied smoothly and evenly without pulling into fine lines. On bare lips, the shimmer was noticeable and added a beautiful, dimensional, opal sheen to lips. When layered over other lip products, I felt the sheen wasn't nearly as visible, but it did supply a nice glossy shine. I also noticed pairing the gloss over lip products caused the performance and wear time of the lipstick to shorten. Opal wore well for +4 hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. (4/5)

Overall, this product has a very unique concept, but I feel as if the end result comes as a disappointment since it isn't nearly as intense as you would hope. It's a fun, subtle gloss to wear on it's own, but for layering over other products, I would definitely suggest pairing it over a matte lipstick to get the most out of that stronger, opal sheen.
