Last Summer, Bite Beauty graced Queen West bringing their unique lip lab experience to their home-town of Toronto, and for any beauty junkies it’s a must visit.
If you aren’t familiar, Bite Beauty is an innovative natural beauty company focusing on lips- so natural the products are edible! When I mentioned natural beauty companies in my NY resolutions post that prove pure and effective ingredients can be one in the same, this company is top of this list.
Bite Beauty’s regular line is a concise collection of all things lips- primers, masks, and colours. Because of the natural ingredients their products are often multi-purpose like their signature multi-stick which can be used on lips, cheeks and eyes. The Amuse Bouche lipstick collection is the foundation of their product line and what the lip lab is based around- a classic lipstick, and the colours are both gorgeous & on point with trends.
The Bite Beauty lip lab looks like a long bar with pots of colour, fresh flowers, munchies, and the staff in theme wearing lab coats. The back wall is lined with glass showing off where Bite Beauty products are actually being made. It’s so interesting to watch the small batch products in creation and honestly inspiring to see such a high quality and authentic cosmetic in production. If you weren’t sold on the company, you will be now. My sister and I stopped in as part of her birthday day and being lipstick lovers, we had the best time!
The lip lab offers a couple choices- a lipstick curation where you select a colour from over 200 shades, a finish (matte, gloss etc.) and a scent, or a full custom lipstick experience. We chose the less involved curate option but the custom lip creation is for the next visit- you’re able to blend shades together to get a truly one of a kind lip colour. The staff is super helpful and quickly helped us narrow down what we were looking for. I was looking for an everyday shade and my sister was looking to create a colour for her wedding reception- very different requests and they nailed both of them! You’re able to see the product being made from start to finish where the colour is put into a tube & frozen on ice, then finally packed in a tube to take home!
