Another month, another shade! I’ll be honest, I wasn’t terribly excited about this one. I have a tremendous amount of pink lipsticks so it takes a lot to get me pumped about buying a new one.
“004” is a deep fuchsia that Bite describes as “dragon fruit.” So, basically dark pink. Let’s check out the swatch!
As usual, the formula is fantastic. Every time I use these lipsticks I fall more and more in love. They’re just so creamy and pigmented! Thank goodness they fixed the formula. I’m still not completely sold on the price tag, but you’re paying for exclusivity, not really for the formula.
So, let’s say you didn’t get your hands on April’s shade. Time to dupe this bitch!
Look. At. That. “004” is on the left and on the right is Too Faced Melted Lipstick in “Jelly Donut.” That’s pretty much an exact color dupe. “004” is just a touch darker but otherwise I doubt anybody could tell the difference. You can check out my review of “Jelly Donut” here!
Another almost exact dupe! And again, it’s from Too Faced! Left is “004” and right is Too Faced Melted Lipstick in “Melted Berry.” I mention in my review of “Jelly Donut” that the color was a bit too similar to “Melted Berry” to justify me owning both. And this is why! THESE ALL LOOK THE SAME! In this particular swatch of “Melted Berry,” things are looking a bit more matte. And it’s just the tiniest bit more red. But honestly, you’ve got yourself another fantastic dupe! You can read my review of that one here!
A decent lipstick overall. Here’s hoping May is a bit more exciting!
