BITE Beauty Lip Lab

There's some things in life that seem too good to be true. A place where you can go and turn your dream lipstick shade into a reality is one of them. Except it's actually not too good to be true. The BITE Beauty Lip Lab is here, now making lipstick fantasies come to life since May 2013.

Addie's Oxberry on a deceptively blond-looking yours truly.
It all started with an experimental pop up shop a few years ago that BITE popped up (haha) in the Big Apple. Apparently, customizable lipsticks turned out to be such a hit that they decided to make their Lip Lab a permanent part of the Soho landscape. And boy, am I ever glad they did.

Admittedly, I was not lucky enough to visit the Lip Lab myself, but my best friend, who spent the past few months in NYC, made the visit for me. Prior to her visit, I provided her with specific instructions for a lip color that was equal parts berry and oxblood, nothing too shiny and with a hint of mint (is this sounding like a Give-a-Mouse-a-Cookie situation?). If you can't tell from the picture above, she executed the assignment wonderfully. My "Addie's Oxberry" is semi-matte, or technically Luminous Créme, minty and the perfect mixture of colors!

Forever grateful for a bestie that knows what I want in a lipstick.
Now, since I can't describe the actual process to you myself, I will just have to show you with pictures Katie took on her cellphone, more than likely as I was annoyingly texting her my color and flavor requests.

Ah, doesn't the table of colors just make you want to scream? I think BITE has truly stepped up the lipstick game with this one. If you're interested in visiting the Lip Lab, hours and location can be found by clicking here.

So, tell me... have you had the chance to visit the BITE Beauty Lip Lab? What do you think?


  1. This is just incredible! Thanks for popping by my blog and letting me know about this - I am definitely going to visit this place! Now all I have to do is think of a colour...hmmm! How much was it do you know? xx

    1. I think it runs anywhere from $28 to $40, which is kinda pricey, but not too bad if you consider that it's totally your own color ya know? If you go, let me know what you think!

    2. Ooh great thanks! I read reviews and some people said $28 which I don't think it too bad considering it is your own but then one said $55 so I wanted to make sure before trekking all the way down there haha!

    3. I don't blame you at all! Better safe than sorry (or broke) :)

  2. That is so cool! I'll have to try and stop there the next time I'm in NYC
