Bite Beauty is a new Sephora-exclusive product line that immediately turned my head, in part because of the elegant simplicity of the textured grey packaging with glossy red lettering, but also because of the alluring range of shades and textures – all just for lips. Also, the fact that Bite Beauty lip products contain food-grade ingredients and the resveratrol equivalent of five glasses of red wine is kinda cool too.
To try out the Bite Beauty line, I picked up a Bite Beauty High Pigment Matte Pencil in Honey Berry, because it looked gorgeously mauve-nude swiped on my hand and because it reminded me of my beloved Nars Velvet Matte Pencil formula. How did it stack up?

Previously featured as a Meilily Product Pick, the Intense Lipgloss from UK beauty brand Illamasqua definitely requires some good swatches.

So, here are several swatches of Illamasqua Intense Lipgloss in Move, a dusty mauve shade with hints of violet, swatched in different lighting.
