What has Bite Beauty Luminous Creme Lipstick in Palomino got in common with the palomino horse? They both stand out in a crowd. Palomino is a gorgeous breed characterized by a pale gold coat and white mane and tail that make these horses very sought after for parades. Their unusual colour makes them easy to spot in a group.
Bite Beauty Luminous Creme Lipstick in Palomino attracts attention for its colour too. But not for its paleness or uniqueness. It stands out for its boldness. A bright magenta, almost fuchsia, shade with cool, purple undertones and a shiny finish, Palomino is not for the faint of heart.
Nor is it something you can swipe on in a jiffy. The shade is so pigmented and intense you need to use a lip brush to apply it properly and precisely. I also prefer to use a brush for another reason. This shade doesn’t glide on the lips too smoothly. I had heard how creamy Bite Beauty lipsticks are but Palomino seems to be the exception.
It doesn’t really tug at the lips, but it’s not as creamy as I expect a $24.00 lipstick to be either. On the plus side, it means Palomino stays put. It doesn’t feather, bleed, or seep into fine lines. It fades, but very slowly.
When I wear Palomino, I can have a quick snack without worrying about touch-ups. That leaves the colour just that little bit faded, but intact and gorgeous. Dinner will turn it into a pretty, even stain. You can reapply it if you miss its vibrancy, but I don’t. I like its softer side too. It makes it easier to wear.
Thing is, no matter what you do, only a makeup remover can make Palomino completely leave your lips. But you may want to say goodbye long before retiring for the night. As so often happens, the colour far outlasts the moisture. After a couple of hours, Palomino starts feeling really dry on the lips, so make sure you have a lip balm at the ready (or better, apply it beforehand).
