Bite Beauty - The Lip Lab experience

Have you ever wondered what's its like to make your own lipstick? or creating that perfect colour you've been searching for? 
A few weeks back, I had the chance to create my own personalized lipstick at the BITE Lip Lab, here in Toronto. 
I've been curious about the brand for quite some time, and what better way to experience and discover their famous formulations of lippies.

In 2013, BITE beauty was born and created in Toronto by Susanne Langmuir. Since the launch, the brand's ready to wear line has quickly become a steady fan favorite at Sephora.
The whole range is dedicated on using natural, food grade ingredients in all their lipstick formulations. 

I visited the Queen West location and was greeted right away from a lip lab artist, with all details on how the experience works. 
I quickly found out why they are such a well-loved brand. The customer care and attention to detail was beyond my expectations. My consultation was thorough and my lip artist took her time in asking all the questions she needed to suggest the right colour options.

Here's how it works!
There are two different ways to get into the experience. I chose the 'A la Carte' option and made a single lipstick at $55, but you can also make 2 custom lipsticks at $80. 
The other option, is $150 for two custom made lipsticks and a BITE Beauty Exclusive lip lab kit; which includes some all-star lip care products from the brand.

Step 1 - Choose your Colour 
With over 200 BITE lip pigments, it is definitely the place to create your perfect shade. I was on the hunt for the perfect deep brown-red that would suit my fair skin. 

Step 2 - Choose your Finish 
BITE has 3 choices: Glossy Sheer, Amuse Bouche (their classic, famous satin formula) and Matte Cream. I love a Matte lip, so this was my choice of finish.

Step 3 - Choose your Scent
This has to be the hardest part! the 9 exclusive scents are absolutely decadent and last for hours on your lips. The choices of scent vary greatly, including vanilla, mango, mint, and more. 
I chose vanilla and mint, and I can even feel the tingle of the mint on my lips when I apply the lipstick! Totally a winning combo.

Since my visit, I'm addicted to their Matte Cream formulation. It is the most comfortable matte formula I've ever worn. I don't have any bleeding or feathering at the lipline and rarely need to re-apply during the day or after meals. 

If you're already starting your Holiday shopping; this would be a great gift for the person that has everything, or has been looking for their perfect shade.

The BITE Beauty Lip Lab can be found at 678 Queen Street West, in downtown Toronto. You can also see what's happening online, here.
