Bite Beauty Luminous Creme Lipstick in Retsina

Bite Beauty Luminous Creme Lipstick in Retsina

Because I am insane.

Because I have too many lip products.

Because I have a terrible memory.

Because I constantly do this.

I bought Bite Beauty Luminous Creme Lipstick in Retsina, even though it turns out I already have it.

Le sigh.

At least I only have a mini version of it!

Retsina is a pale nude pink creme.

Bite Beauty Retsina Lipstick


Overall: The Luminous Creme Lipsticks are really, really creamy. They are packed with antioxidant resveratrol for anti-aging benefits. They are moisturizing and nicely pigmented, and they have no taste or scent. Retsina does settle into lip lines a little bit, but it’s not that noticeable from a further distance. It’s a great nude to pair with a smoky eye!

Availability: Sephora.

Pricing: $24.00.

Do you own any of these lip shades?


Note: Cruelty free

    Aah, I’m dying to try Bite Beauty’s stuff! As a lipstick lover, they sound like just the thing! I’ll have to figure out how to get them here, though…

      They need to be sold everywhere they are so great!

    I was always worried that they had fragrance. I’m so glad you mentioned that. I love that kind of shade.

      It’s such a great line and brand in general.

    Love the lippy, hate the name Retsina.
    Well, I hate the memory that the name Retsina conjures up for me.

    Worst. Hangover. Ever.

      Ugh sounds bad!

        Yes, it was sheer youthful overindulgence, the memory of which haunts me to this very day…
        this didn’t even occur to me until now-
        does Retsina the lipstick smell or taste like Retsina the wine?

        That would surely be the end of me. *shudders*

        In all seriousness, I have a couple of Bite lipsticks, and I love them. I can’t remember what their flavoring is, but I love their formula.

    I own Shiraz and I absolutely love it. Definitely want to get my hands on more shades :-)

    • March 28, 2014

      They’re so nice, right? I want them to expand the line but am also scared b/c I would buy so many more!

  • March 28, 2014

    That’s a beautiful color! I just treated myself to a lipstick from them too (hey it was my bday. LOL). I really love the consistency and quality. Just wish I could of gotten my hands on that Xmas set they had with the double ends of lipsticks D:

    I have the small tube you get with VIB Rouge from Sephora. I love it, must invest in some of the lipsticks! I like the looks of their crayon lipsticks too :)

    this is probably the one lipstick i always look for at sephora and the ones near me always are sold out! in the bullet i think it looks too dark but swatches and on the lips it looks perfect.

    I get it. I did the same thing with CoverGirl Simply Ageless concealer and Sally Hansen Lustre nail polish in Scarab. *facepalm*

    At least you have a back up of this shade. :)

    Bite is pretty much the only company I buy lip products from now. I have Celiac Disease, and Bite Beauty’s lipsticks are all certified gluten-free! They’re a little pricey, but I’ve tried shopping around and researching (cosmetic companies are THE WORST when it comes to being straight with you about ingredients), and I’ve decided it’s just not worth the extra work when Bite makes such terrific, bold, pigmented colors and has made the extra effort to make sure they don’t make people like me sick. I highly recommend them (their honey lip gloss is my current favorite!)

    Perfect nude!

    Not all nude lipsticks are made equally, and that one is a great shade!

    I have only tried one Bite lipstick (and I believe the shade I have is now discontinued). You are tempting me to try a couple more!

    Oh, and I’ve double purchased also- don’t feel bad- I view it as reaffirming our good taste!
    (and we *meant* to do that, so we’d have backups…) (right?)
