Bite Beauty Lip Lab Toronto – Custom Lipstick Experience

I was first introduced to Bite lipstick through my sister, Diana. She emerged ready for work one day, wearing this beautiful, satiny, pinky, brown. I loved it. She explained to me that it was a brand that Sephora started to carry and that they had all sorts of amazing shades. She also excitedly explained that Bite was opening a Beauty Lab in Toronto like it’s lab in New York where you could custom mix your OWN lipsticks. I love lipstick so much, almost to a fault. I can never have enough lipstick. So to be my own ~mad scientist of lipstick~ sounded like a dream. I was in. However, it ended up being a bit pricey once I performed some number crunching (aka, I could buy almost 6 lipsticks for the same price). I was out. Then my other sister agreed to split the cost of the experience as a birthday gift for Diana. I was back in. For her. But also for me. But mostly her.

The day was SUPPOSED to be a surprise. I thought we had her totally stumped, and we did, up until just a couple minutes before we got in the lab. I had told her that we were taking her to the best donut shop in the city.. Something I knew she wouldn’t be excited about given that we had just eaten a massive lunch. But she was a good sport about it and walked along to the surprise. It was just when she saw a group of girls with small, black, Bite branded shopping bags that she clued in and said, “ARE WE GOING TO BITE??”. So close.

She got to decide on two types of colours, so she settled on a “day” shade and a “night” shade. The colours were mixed on a clear sheet where she could choose to add a little red, a little purple, make it darker, lighter, etc…She would try on the colour, and then make the adjustments she wanted, to get it juuuuust right. Then once the colour was finalized, she picked a scent, decided if she wanted it shiny or matte, and gave it a name. The mixture was poured into a mould, then frozen and placed into the lipstick tube. The two signature colours she created were called “Natalie” and “Pepper”. They were matte colours in a neutral dusty rose and a rich red wine, with coconut and cherry scents.

To compliment her two colours, she got a lip scrub, agave lip mask, and lip primer. The whole experience was perhaps a bit too pricey to go and replace your signature shades often, but it was definitely a fun one. Even just to watch my sister get giddy over mixing colours.

The day was polished off with some amazing coffee and pastries from Sud Forno a few doors down. Nutella espressos exist, and yes, they are the love-child of the two best things in the world.

Perfect day.
