Review: Bite Beauty Cashmere Lip Cream

I've had this in my collection for a while, but the reason I hadn't reviewed it as of yet was because this is one of the most unique lip products I own and it's taken me months to really figure out if I like it or not.

I purchased my cashmere lip cream in the color Bordeaux from Sephora (0.26 oz, $28) and it is housed in a traditional lip gloss packaging.

The formula of the cashmere lip cream is a cream to powder (matte finish). First off, that's weird for the lips; for cheek products sure, but powder on the lips? The formula glides on smoothly and is extremely light. Although it's name suggests its a cream, on the lips it feels even lighter than your typical creamy lipstick. The applicator is a flat paddle doe foot, which is probably the best way to apply because with the bolder colors you need that precise edge to perfect your lip shape. Alternatively you could always pair the product with a lip pencil in a corresponding color. Although the formula is very smooth, it doesn't feel particularly hydrating, most likely because of that powder finish, but I don't find that it is drying on the lips either. Bite boasts that the lip creams contain 4 times the normal pigment, and I would agree. What you see in the bottle is exactly what will come out on your lips.

In terms of delivering pigment and longevity, this product is definitely a win. But, every time I wear this that powder finish feels so strange on my lips! Overall it's a good product and I just need to get used to the feeling of it because its true to color and has a great lightweight formula. Have you guys tried these? How do you feel about the powder finish texture?


  1. I'm always on a lookout for new lip products and this just might be my excuse for the next sephora shopping spree :D you have such a lovely blog, I will definitely keep my eyes on it <3

    1. Thanks so much! It's definitely one of the more interesting lip products I've come across :)
