 Old Beauty News Thread

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

Very sad to read Bite Beauty shutting down hence the 50% off all products through June 30th . 😢 I personally haven’t loved their reformulated lipsticks nor the other stuff but hate to see it go. Labs staying in biz at least. I read this on Temptalia. 

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

Bite Beauty was my first high end lipstick. I remember the various collections. Unfortunately I developed an allergic reaction to the Lip Mask first but I was still able to wear their lipsticks. Unfortunately 18 months later I developed the same allergy to their lipsticks. With tears on my eyes, I brought my entire collection of Bite Beauty lipsticks to work for my coworkers to enjoy. I still look back fondly with my experience with Bite Beauty. I refused to give up the monthly collection that I believe was released in either 2014 or 2015.

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

Oh that had to be such a bummer for you @Loretta55 , so sorry for the reactions. Wow what a fun thing for you to do with your co-workers, they had to have loved that! 🥰 

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

My coworkers were thrilled when I brought all of the Bite Beauty lipsticks to work it was like Christmas morning for them @Sunnysmom

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

@Sunnysmom  I'm sad but not surprised at all. As soon as they rebranded themselves as "clean" and discontinued nearly all their existing (at the time) products, I knew Bite wouldn't last long. Some of you know how strongly I feel about "clean beauty," and that I wasn't happy to see Bite force themselves so deep into that category with a rebrand that said little to nothing about vegan beauty (another aspect of the brand, though you wouldn't have known it based on much of their updated marketing). All their branding screamed "clean," making it very clear they'd decided to ride that marketing scam to scare customers out of their money. And welp, I guess it didn't work out the way Bite wanted. Doesn't matter how "clean" (or vegan, for that matter) your product is if it's subpar, especially compared to the old products you discontinued. 

 

Heck, even going the "clean" route, they might've had better success if they'd kept existing products and did a gradual cutover to new products. But the way they rebranded felt like an identity crisis. If I recall correctly, they didn't have many products (excluding their Lip Labs) when they launched their rebrand... just a few matte lip crayons, I think, and their lip stain, in a very small and safe shade range. [ EDIT: after talking about Bite with a friend and reading a couple blog posts, now I remember it was foundation + the reformulated lip crayons they launched for the rebrand. ] If an established LVMH/Kendo brand plans to drop all existing products, completely change their marketing direction, and launch a rebrand, it'd make sense if they'd wait until they have enough new products ready to replace more of the old products, and then launch. It'd make even more sense to do a gradual rollover: launch the new products alongside the old, and post a "product retiring on [date]" notice on old products' pages. 🤷‍♀️ Instead, it took them how long to finally launch a replacement of their most-loved product line (Amuse Bouche lipstick)? The shade range of the new Power Move lipstick disappointed those of us who knew the former Bite as "we're not afraid of 'unconventional' color. You want dinosaur kale colored lipstick? We got you!" Power Move's performance added insult to injury. I wish I'd returned mine, because I never even think of reaching for it. 

 

At least the labs are staying open, and I've read a couple reports of more locations coming. Hopefully they won't muck up the custom lipstick formula. 

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

Yup it’s so true and your thoughts are spot on @WinglessOne. So many things could have gone right vs awry. I too felt huge disappointment seeing the new evolution to it all and even felt some kind of weird way about the marketing and packaging of it! That was new to me as I didn’t expect to react that way! Lol Oh well. Such a shame, wish they’d been able to hear your thoughts and take some advice too. I was so envious you could wear the green and blue, those were truly amazing colors on you. There was nothing like the old formula for sure, boo. I tried to be excited about Power Move but alas could not. 😔 Fingers crossed the lab formula will remain solid and true to the old but I’m a little nervous no matter what I was told. Seems hard to believe they will keep it as it was. Ah well we shall raise a glass to the good old days of Bite and I’ll keep my collection as long as I can!🥂

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

@Sunnysmom , @WinglessOne  Indeed, if only cosm.co's would heed the Wisdom of we, the happily obsessed beauty Enthusiasts on BIC. Don't they pay major money to organize Focus groups and the like? Yet they could just 'lurk' here & glean our sincere thoughts on many products. Stuff that B-School doesn't address. Yes, there are other pieces of the kinetic puzzle, but I'd say BIC is a vast reservoir of knowledge.

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

Yup, lots of good stuff from the BIC peanut gallery I’m sure @MvLL ! 

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

@Sunnysmom It was nice to have known BITE. 'Tis a Sad day when a decent company with a winning* and useful approach has to call it quits, But good their Lab will carry-on. 

* well, their Original formulas.

Another co. with bespoke & pricey lipstick, "Three Custom Colors" is probably OOB too. 

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

@MvLL I remember having my mind blown when I read that Three Custom Colors could re-create any lipstick if you just sent them a dime sized sample.  It made me wish I had saved old lipsticks!  Do you have any experience with their custom lippies?

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

@greeneyedgirl107 , @Sunnysmom I also was quite interested, but I never bought a 3CC. ls., as their price point was/is excessive, and I want to know what frag., if any, is present. Great concept though!

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

I bought a few of the pots that stacked plus had a few bespoke lipsticks created @MvLL @greeneyedgirl107 and I can not think of the lipstick scent at all . Tho I think it was very neutral, same with the glosses and lips in the pots . I will have to see if I still have them around and I’ll let you know! 

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

It is @MvLL , boo. You know I wonder because I do get emails from TCC periodically. I think they’re still around! I liked them too!

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

@Sunnysmom I am so sad 😞 I LOVED bite. I had EVERY RELEASE. I loved the sephora bite monthly releases and the Astrology ones 😞 So sad. I went to the lip lab MANY times. 

 

I ordered the few that was left but this is really sad to me.

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

@ChristalM. Do you remember the 500-point-reward Set, "KIR Royal"? Such a gorgeous fuschia! Not too bright or at all pastel. Items: an excellent 'fruity' gloss, & a small ls. plus a round mirror?

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

@MvLL I literally just ran to my Bite stash to find it! OMG that one was nice. I must get back into the Bite stash. Such great lipsticks back in the day 😞

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

@MvLL OMG YES. I must dig that one out again!

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

@ChristalM I forgot about the astrology ones!  I love the Movember releases too!

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

I could not wait for the monthly releases @missjeanie ! And I think I used tons of points to hoard those little rewards too, the best ones ever for a lip lover! 

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

Yup yup yup me too @ChristalM ! 😫 I couldn’t wait for their new collections! Beyond sad!
