Last month when I visited Sephora, I purchased one of Bite Beauty holiday collection 2016.
This is Bite Beauty The Perfect Bite Set. Unfortunately, it's sold out online but you can purchase the full-size lipsticks.

Thoughts: I'm a huge fan of Bite Beauty lip products. To be honest, I have purchased from the holiday collection the last three years. I haven't played with the last two. This is the first one I touched.
Now for how it looks on me...
Now for my overall opinion... First of all, there's no noticeable scent while applying. I just sniffed the lipsticks and they all have a slight scent. All three of them smell like peppermint except Honeycomb. Honeycomb smells more like mint. Secondly, I have the mini-size. They look like the smaller version of the full-size. It's well-made, sturdy, and I like the packaging. I don't have to worry about it getting dirty or fingerprints on the tube. With that said, it's extremely travel-friendly. I cannot see the tube open and it's easy to throw in your purse/pocket. Third, the consistency is creamy and glides on. Since it's so soft and smooth, it doesn't tug on the lips. It's easy to apply and since I have the mini-size, I find it a little difficult to outline the lips. There shouldn't be a problem with the full-size. I recommend using a lip brush with Nori. If you make a mistake with Nori, it's extremely noticeable. I tried to hide the imperfections on the outline with a concealer but I didn't do a good job. Fourth, the colors are all gorgeous. I will talk about each individually. Fig is brighter and pinker in person than in the tube. The color is great for spring/summer season and it's a common color you can find in other brands. Pepper is the one that blew me away. It's a great neutral brownish-purple. I think the color is kind of unique but I'm sure if you search, you can find similar color lipsticks. It's great for all-year round. Honeycomb was the one I wanted to try most. It's a very neutral color and matches the lipstick color in the tube. With that said, it's definitely not unique. You can find similar color in other brands. Nori was the one that disappointed me the most. It's very patchy and my dry, chapped lip was visible. The color is more wine tone than brownish-red and it's great for fall/winter season. Lastly, they lasted until I ate/drank. I have a tendency to wipe my mouth after I eat. I noticed most of the color came off in the inner mouth than the outline. With that said, my favorites were Pepper and Honeycomb.
