Bad for my bank. Good for the blog.
Anyhow, as you can imagine this means that more often than not most of my lipsticks/balms/glosses never get much love, let alone finished. In fact I think Mac's Hue is the ONLY lipstick I've ever used up completely. Luckily though, at the rate I'm currently applying my latest lip love it won't be the only one for long.
Meet Rodial's Glamstick in Bite.
Talking of Hue, Bite is not dissimilar in shade when swatched and more importantly applied. It gives the lips the same subtle wash of milky nude, slightly dusky pink. AMAZING. The only difference really between the two are the formulas.
While Hue is a traditional lipstick, albeit on the sheerer more natural side; Bite is a Glamstick which is a Vitamin E/Cocoa Butter enriched, Coconut flavoured tinted (well pigmented) lip butter.
The consistency is seriously gorgeous. Like most lip butters it's rich and hydrating, but what I really enjoy about the Glamstick other than the shade is its lipstick form. I CAN'T stand lip products in pots!
Now, a product this lovely doesn't come cheap. Rodial's Glamsticks are just under twenty quid at £19 which I know is a lot for a lip butter, but in my opinion they're well worth it. This isn't one of those risky pout purchases that will sit unloved in your collection, it's so damn wearable that you won't be able to keep it off your lips. Well, I certainly can't anyway!
