I get it, you like roses. Long-stem, lotion, serum, cream, mist, perfume, balm, the list goes on. I can’t blame you, roses to me are quite cathartic and soothing. While I prefer not to be gifted with a bouquet (waste of money), I’ll buy anything rose-scented on a whim.
Bite Beauty recently released a limited collection called Deconstructed Rose ($28, 4.35g, 0.15 oz). Available in four shades, I picked up Crimson, a ravishing cranberry which I don’t mind rocking year-round.
I am a fan of Bite Beauty lippies because they are truly moisturizing and highly-pigmented (I have reviewed the luminous cream lipstick and matte lip crayon here). The finish and texture of Deconstructed Rose is consistent with the luminous cream line: luxurious, long-wearing and creamy. If there is one stark difference I have to emphasize, that would be the scent. It wasn’t called rose for nothing. Yes, it’s a strong fragrance that lingers for a while. Since scent is personal and relative, you may bask in all its glory unknowingly annoying someone who finds it a bit repulsive. Well, that is if you care, I don’t. I wear for myself.
Here’s a swatch of Crimson…
and how it looks on moi...
Have you tried anything from Bite Beauty?
