 Pastille Rosebud
Pastille Lilac

The word "matte" related to lipstick always makes me nervous because I expect to be like the dry mattes from the 90s - I needn't have worried for a second with these ones, they are so incredibly moist it's crazy! They neither look nor feel dry and the colour lasts such a long time - I did a light touch up after lunch but that was more out of habit then necessity! And as you can see the pigmentation is great - if you've been looking for a vibrant lipstick these are well worth checking out!

Available now at Sephora and sephora.ca.

  1. But they don't look matte at all! Love the shade Pastille Rosebud though - so pretty and fresh!

  2. I can't believe these are called Matte. They sure look juicy to me! Beautiful.

  3. I have yet to try anything by Bite, and I always look at it when I go to Sephora. THese look more juicy than matte, but are so gorgeous! Thanks for the excellent review, Lisamarie. I clearly need to pick one of these up!!!!!

  4. That lilac shade is very pretty. I have never tried Bite? These do look glossy for mattes. Great post! :)
