Bite Beauty Power Move Creamy Matte Lip Crayon (Calvados)

Bite Beauty Calvados quick review and swatch

I like this product, but I don’t find it to be matte.  I think they could have gotten away with calling it a satin, but it has a sheen to it for quite some time on me.  I don’t think it is ever as shiny as a cream lipstick, so I think satin would be a better description.  It does transfer off onto cups and straws when you drink but the brand doesn’t make any long wear or transfer proof claims that I’ve seen.  They do claim it is creamy, comfortable and has one swipe color and I can agree with those claims for the shade I tried (calvados).  It lasts well and looks fresh for a good amount of time, it just isn’t matte.

The Bite Beauty Power Move Creamy Matte Lip Crayons are available now for $24 @ Sephora.

The closest shade that I have to compare to the Bite Beauty Calvados shade is MAC Persistence.  This shade is no longer on their website, but it is a matte finish, which they still sell in other shades.  But as you can see from the image, the Bite Beauty has more sheen to it than the matte finish of the MAC lipstick.

I can definitely see myself looking into other shades in this formula.  I do wonder however, if the finish will vary between shades.

Have you tried another shade in this formula?  Do you find it to be matte?
