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…

    You look gorgeous in this look – love it. I picked up the Bite Beauty Duos… and am loving the formulation – so I know that I need and must have the lippies now. 😀

    That lipstick is beautiful on you.

    I haven't tried any Bite Beauty, yet. Next time I'm in Sephora, I'll grab one of the little lippies in the impulse buy section and give the brand a try. 🙂

    This is such a beautiful color!

  7. April 28, 2014 / 3:32 pm

    That's a beautiful color! I just tried my first Bite Beauty – a gloss. I was expecting it to be purplish from the bottle, but it was actually pink! whomp-whomp. Well, it is gloss. I need to try one of their lipsticks, I think!

      oh Nidia, once you've tried the lippies, you'll be hooked.

    This color looks so sophisticated, it's not just a simple red or simple pink, it has so much depth to it! Love that it's rose scented, I like that fragrance 🙂

  9. April 28, 2014 / 4:15 pm

    This is now on my "wanted" list. It's stunning!

  10. April 28, 2014 / 5:46 pm

    Wowzers! That is such a great color on you. I do love a good rose scent, so I'll be interested in trying it out for myself.

  11. April 28, 2014 / 6:10 pm

    I need this, and all Bite Beauty products!

  12. April 28, 2014 / 7:13 pm

    Very pretty shade for spring & summer and it looks great on you!

  13. April 28, 2014 / 7:19 pm

    I love that you rock whatever colors you want year round. I don't like certain colors of makeup to be "tired" down to a certain season. This is a stunning shade on you. I haven't tried anything from BITE yet, but like you I love roses.

    • April 29, 2014 / 7:00 am

      Thanks Ashley. It's nice to follow trend every once in a while but I'm the type who wears whatever I like.

  14. April 28, 2014 / 8:26 pm

    Wow, that color looks stunning on you, now think I need to go buy myself a new lippy LOL!!!!
