So for round two of the Deconstructed Rose Library Gloss Set of 12 beautiful shades of a rose I will be reviewing glosses Four, Seven and Ten. You can find my previous review on shades One, Six and Twelve here.
Once again, picking shades in a way that I can be reviewing very different colours per post…since some are extremely close in shade (looking at you Eight, Nine and Ten!)
I really enjoy gloss four! It is actually one of my favourites of this set, and most used on a regular basis. It is described by Bite Beauty as the “raisin” colour, but I have to say that is not what comes to my mind for this shade, to me it is just my lip colour with a tad darker pigment. Which obviously means, its super flattering for a natural look. It adds enough pigment that you definitely know there is something there, but still natural and sheer enough that it isn’t a standout.
On the opposite, we will now be talking about one of my least used. Seven! It is described as a dusty coral, and when swatched on the hand truly does look like a coral with hints of pink. I was super excited about this being a summer lip colour, but was disappointed as soon as I put it on. On my olive skin, it looks straight up orange. Not just that, but it sticks together in areas on my lips, being super orange in one area, and then completely sheer in another. However due to it’s thickness, if I apply multiple coats I can get a better result, so all is not lost with this gloss.
I’m hoping once I get a dark enough tan maybe my thoughts will change, but as of now the colouring for my skin tone is just not flattering at all.
This is the gloss that made me realize that Bite Beauty means business! I seriously cannot get over how amazing the colour payoff is for one stroke across the lip. The below pictures are just one swipe. Ten is so incredibly pigmented, it looks like you are wearing a lipstick with shine! A bright red, this gloss is perfect for a glammed up night. As the others, its a little on the sticky side but has colour that lasts, smells/tastes good, and is amazing quality for a great value!
