I’ve been waiting for what seems like forever for this set, but trust me when I say that the Bite Beauty Lip Lab Trio in Kir Royale is worth it. This set was the third (and last) of the Bite Beauty Lip Lab Trios which were released as Sephora’s 250 point perks. A full sized Luminous Crème lipstick is currently available on Sephora for $28 CAD along with the other shades that were released, Bellini and Mimosa. The shade is described as a “bold wine/berry” and the set came with a mini Luminous Crème lipstick and Lush Fruit Lip Gloss.

The lipstick went on very nicely. It was incredible creamy and opaque. The colour was gorgeous, however I expected it to be a little darker. I think the colour description for this shade was spot on. The finish was definitely more of a satin finish, not too matte and not too shiny. It felt comfortable on my lips over a few hours. I didn’t experience any sort of dryness. The scent of the lipstick was a little odd; it kind of reminded me of a cheap lipstick that I owned back in the day, but it wasn’t extremely off-putting. Overall, I really like this lipstick! However, I’m not sure if I would actually go ahead and buy the full-sized product only because I have so many lip products which are extremely similar to it. But if you’re in the market for a nice berry lipstick, I would highly suggest this one.
Lush Fruit Lip Gloss – Kir Royale

To be frank, I didn’t really care for the lip gloss that came with the trio. This is only because I don’t wear lip gloss, ever, so I just wasn’t interested in it. However, this one was kind of odd. As you can see in the picture above, it isn’t really that glossy. I’m not sure how pigmented the gloss is on its own, but based on other swatches I’ve seen, the colour pay-off seemed decent. It didn’t have any sort of weird scent but it was a little sticky.
And that’s it for the review! Hopefully this was helpful, and the take home message of this post is: grab this while you still can!
