Sentimental Lip Crayon


I tend to wear brighter-bolder lipstick during the fall and winter months; I think it just comes with the territory of cold weather. This is my favorite time of the year and I have always loved the new shades of lipstick that come out.

Even though I look forward to the new shades of lipstick every year, there is one shade  that I will always repurchase time and time again, and that is the brand Bite in Brandy.

The first time that I came across this brand Bite, I was recovery from going birth to Sophia (c-section). I remember feeling very off during the healing process and my coloring just looking pale.

So, I went to Sephora in hoping of finding the perfect red lipstick for the upcoming holidays three years ago. That is the day a sales associate introduced me to the brand Bite in the shade Brandy.


Every year after the winter season would wrap up, I would place my lip crayon in a safe place to bring out for that years upcoming holiday season. One of my favorite things about the brand Bite Matte Creme Lip Crayon is that a little goes a long way. The pigment is so rich, that I am able to apply the shade once and know that it will last several hours before you may have to reapply more.

Except I have noticed that once I need to reapply more, the lip crayon actually stains your lips to a much lighter, shade but nonetheless pretty. There have been times that I left my stained lips alone and just went about the rest of my day.


Last year 2016 during the fall season, I was searching to bring out my lip crayon but I could not anywhere. I looked everywhere….even my car thinking that it magically rolled out of my purse and under my car seats…but no such luck.

I did however return to Sephora three times last year hoping that they had brought back my color, but every time I went back they were out of the shade Brandy….

I guess everyone caught onto how great of a color it is!!!!!


Two weeks ago, I was cleaning out a very old purse that should have been thrown away months ago…and there it was…sitting there…waiting….

I swear I looked through that purse except there was quite a hole in the lining of my purse…and I assume that is where my lipstick grew legs..walked itself into the hole in the lining of my purse and hide in there for over a year.


If you are looking for a new fun lip shade, I would highly recommend Bite in the shade Brandy. I look forward to bringing it out every year. Even though it’s just lip crayon, it has more a sentimental value to me, it reminds me of one of the happiest time period of my life. Even though I was not feeling one hundred percent three years ago, wearing that lip crayon always made me feel better.

Make a trip up to Sephora and try this shade out. It will look great for a girls night out, your next holiday party or it will even dress up a casual shirt and jean day!

The possibilities are endless and you can even wear during the day! How great!

I hope you try it out; if you do please send me your photos wearing it on Instagram at: Sarah_BellaLife.
