Sometimes a product comes along out of nowhere and knocks my socks off. Case in point right here: Sinéad very kindly sourced this from a relative who was away in the States as a birthday pressie. I'd been very curious about BITE Beauty for a while; they're a brand specialising in luxury lip products, what's not to love?! The only clincher is that as it stands, they're only available from Sephora in the US.
The Agave Lip Mask is one of BITE's best-known products; the term 'mask' for your lips is a little misleading, though - I'd describe it as a treatment. I suppose where BITE were going with the mask terminology is that this is an incredible product to prep your kisser with prior to applying lipstick - heavy, matte formulas in particular.
The first time I used this, I was struck by the gorgeous smell; it's not overpowering, just very pleasant, and honestly? I kinda wanted to eat it. It's a real honey-sugar smell; the USP of BITE products is that they are made from food-grade ingredients so, if I did eat it, I'd be safe enough!!
The consistency reminds me a little of Eight Hour Cream, but thicker, and I mean seriously thick.The very tiniest amount goes a very long way; it's actually kind of hard to squeeze out of the tube, but that's alright as it stops you from using too much. It's thick and potent to the point where I wake up the next day with it still on my lips, and when I remove it, they are incredibly soft and hydrated to the point where they actually look plumper. I think that this is just as good as if not better than NUXE Reve de Miel so, if you're looking to try a new heavy-duty lip treatment, look no further.
BITE Beauty products are available at Sephora in the US; if you have a UK mailing address and debit/credit card you can now also order online.
