Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask (review)


A soothing, leave-on lip mask that replenishes moisture in lips. 
This innovative, natural formula smooths, nourishes, and moisturizes lips with a bio-active blend of organic agave nectar, jojoba oil, vanilla CO2 extract, and triple the amount of antioxidant trans-resveratrol found in red wine. 

This product does not contain gluten or petroleum.

This is a wonderful product! Not a  very new product in the market, but definitely a very new in my daily skincare regimen.

I have been wanting to try this mask from the moment I saw it at my local Sephora long back but with $26 price tag for a lip balm (it is a mask, not a balm) some thinking was to be done.
The name is a bit misleading though. Earlier I thought that this was some highly glorified lip balm. I tried it at Sephora and my instant reaction was 'this is so thick!!' No way am I going to use anything this thick on my lips for daily use. I did like how my lips felt by end of the day. I did a little research and figured that it is a mask, not the kinds that needs to be wiped off after certain period of time. It is like one of those 'hydrating over night masks' that is meant to be left for a good amount of time, before actually seeing the results.

I got a chance to try this in a small Holiday gift set and I am absolutely in LOVE! The Holiday Set contained three products. Bite Beauty Whipped Cherry Lip ScrubBite Beauty Agave Lip Mask and Bite Beauty BB For Lips. It also had some lip wipes as well.



Color: Pale Yellow with glossy finish. It goes clear on lips. No tints.

Texture and Consistency: Very thick, heavy, super sticky, dense cream 

Scent: It is not heavily scented with perfumes, but does has some natural, sweet scent with hint of Vanilla, which is pleasant and non bothering. It tastes sweet as well.

Application: I apply the tiniest amount on my lips. Leave it over night. Less is more with this product. The lips would feel heavy and uncomfortable if lot of it is applied. 

Feel on the Lips: It melts when in contact with the lips and spreads easily. It is thick and is not absorbed much. It sits there, heavy on top of the lips. Just like a mask forming a film/coating. There is no tingling sensation or any cool minty feeling. No stinging or numbing at all. 

Effect on the Lips: The instant feeling is pretty uncomfortable for me, because of the thickness and heaviness but the lips become very velvety soft and appear hydrated, smooth and moisturized the next day. There is no peeling whatsoever and my lipstick application was easy breezy!


Packaging: Mine came in a soft squeeze tube, not a metal tube. The product is so thick that it takes some effort to get it out of the tube. It is more like a product that I would transfer in a glass jar. The tube does makes it hygienic though.


Verdict: This is not a lip balm. This is an intensive lip treatment. This is a great treatment for dry, flaky, peeling lips. I personally don't enjoy the way it feels on the lips after application but I love the after effect, the results. I would not apply it during the day, because it is too heavy and thick for my liking. The sticky texture is a must or else it would not stay put and in turn not give the desired results. This is a 100% lip care intensive therapy for me. This reminds me to let you all know how much I appreciate the Fresh Sugar Lip Polish, a product that has helped me to keep my lips in good condition this winter. I remember I was not very impressed with Fresh Sugar Lip Polish initially, but now the ease of use, the scent and the effect of it has made a special place in my daily regimen. 

The Bite Agave Lip Mask does contain Lanolin (food grade) and I know many who are not huge fan of Lanolin. It does not bothers me. The lip mask didn't break me out around my lip area. 
A little goes a long way and I am sure this would last for a really long time. 

Great product! Thumbs up! but remember it is a treatment.

Beauty Buys - Charlotte Tilbury, Hourglass, Marc Jacobs Beauty, Bite Beauty



'BEAUTY BUYS' is just another term coined for the infamous 'HAUL'. Its the list of things I buy, try and the ones you will hear me 'yak', 'blab', 'review' about in next few posts!!! Call this a 'Preview'..

Bunch of products I picked in the past month or so.

I had been eyeing the Charlotte Tilbury products for quite sometime now and last month around mid-March, Nordstrom had their Gift with Purchase promotion and Charlotte Tilbury's GWP was the infamous "Charlotte's Magic Cream". As fascinating as it sounded, I was not going to buy the crazy $100 full size jar without trying some samples. This GWP (a generous size jar) would last for couple of uses, enough to make an opinion and great way to try the luxurious 'magic'.



To avail this I ordered the obvious products. The very popular Filmstar Bronze & Glow Face sculpt and Highlight and a blush. I actually didn't needed the blush, but then I had to reach the $100 minimum to get the GWP products.



For the blush, I opted for the color named "Sex on Fire" (these names! I tell ya). The color is not a regular peachy pink or pinky peach. It is little different from the shades I already own. We will see how it goes. Right now, these products are just "admired" and yet to be used.



I placed my first ever order at Beautylish and opted for Charlotte Tilbury 'Multi-Miracle Glow' Cleanser, Mask & Balm for Baby Soft Skin. They had $10 off first purchase and I just picked this. There is something about these names and carefully placed words in Charlotte Tilbury brand of Makeup and Skincare. "Magic", "Miracle Glow" etc etc that makes the product sound all the more Awesome! I hope they live up to their name and price tag.

Sephora had their VIB Rouge sale where 15% off entire order was the deal. I carefully and on purpose avoided picking any new Skincare products and stuck to makeup.



I picked the newly released Hourglass Ambient Bronzer. Everything Ambient from Hourglass has worked excellent for me and even though the initial swatches of this Bronzer on Temptalia showed loads of 'Orange hue' in it (which is true) this made me look so beautiful in store when the MUA applied it on me. I had to get it. I am not sure if I will be able to apply this as wonderfully as she did, but yes, she sold it to me. Her job done!

I picked some lip products as well. I am a huge huge huge fan of Bite Beauty Agave Mask (review) and I really wanted to try their new Butter cream lipsticks. These are the hand cut bullets and according to them this technique removes the outer waxy layer and exposes the most creamy layer of the lipstick. It sounds very 'gimmicky' to me. We will see if it really makes any difference or not.



Marc Jacobs Beauty: I went to this display only because Marc Jacobs Beauty (P)Outliner Longwear Lip Pencil was on my wishlist. Lately I have been using less lipsticks and more of lip liner, lip gloss combination to get a fresh, clean look for my lips. When I swatched it, I knew I had to get it. It is very very creamy and I chose the color Prim(rose) 304.

I love the Marc Jacobs Beauty nail polishes and wanted to try something else. I don't know much about the products from this brand, but I must say the packaging is excellent. I picked a Marc Jacobs Beauty New Nudes Sheer Lip Gel simply because the tube looked beautiful! I chose the color Role Play.

My favorite high end Mascaras are Benefit Cosmetics They're Real! Mascara and CLINIQUE Lash Doubling Mascara. Usually I go for drugstore Mascaras. For eyeliners too, I love my drugstore L'Oreal. Also the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner is excellent, but mine dried within a month! I don'y know why. So I stay away from high end liners. The kit is a great way to try all these goodies. The two minis practically come free.

These are many products to try and like always I want to try these for few days before actually reviewing them on this blog.

Beauty Cravings

A few beauty products that I have been wanting to try for the Spring - Summer Seasons. I won't necessarily buy every single thing, but I do wish to try them on.

Tarte: Tarte Showstopper Clay Palette: This all in one palette will make one excellent travel buddy or an awesome gift for someone. The colors look very wearable.

Marc Jacobs Beauty (P)Outliner Longwear Lip Pencil: I love Marc Jacobs packaging. They have the most unique shaped containers. These lip liners don't need sharpening and I find the number 304 very beautiful.

Guerlain Terracotta Joli Teint Powder Duo looks absolutely luxurious and beautiful in promo pictures. There are four shades in this release. I plan to swatch these the next time I am at a makeup counter (if I am not overwhelmed with the huge selection of bronzers and powders this brand carries)

Bite Beauty Butter Cream Lipstick: The very unusual marketing is making this all the more attractive. Not to mention the pretty color selection and the word 'Butter'

Hourglass Ambient Bronzer: The star product!! I am so looking forward to try this. Everything "ambient" has always worked wonderfully for me. I am dying to swatch this beauty!

Most of these products are released except the Hourglass Ambient Bronzer which i believe is VIB exclusive at Sephora. Reviews and Swatches have started popping up all over the Beauty Blogging sites. I like always will save up, think and re-think and then buy. After all I am just a consumer!
