Dracula, Vampires, Werewolfs: pick your poison. They sting only at first bite, but they leave behind this beautiful deep red color.
The Bottom Line:

One of my all time favortes Review by Kelly
Definitely worth the hype. (Posted on 11/22/15)
Brownish red Review by Karyn
For me bitten is a brownish red. It is very soft, very pigmented. I am using it with a very light hand. This was one of my first MUG purchases and I am very pleased. (Posted on 11/7/15)
Stunning colour Review by Kirstin
I thought this would be too red for me but it is a gorgeous red maroon/berry colour and it makes my blue eyes pop. This colour goes with everything. It's super pigmented so you only need a bit but it glides on and blends beautifully. Love it!!!! (Posted on 10/8/15)
Nice Review by PeggyRose
I love the duo chrome collection. I decided to try MUG eyeshadows again after my first purchase of their starter kit eyeshadows and just didn't fall in love. So anyway I wanted to try the duo chrome eyeshadows and decided to also get bitten and peach smoothie and still find them dry and patchy. I just didn't fall in love with them and don't understand all the hype. I will stick with the duo chrome collection (Posted on 10/3/15)
If you like this then you will love this Review by Tootah
If you own melt cosmetics "enigma" you will seriously throw this away because it's much more pigmented and vivid. This formula at least when I bought this a long time ago was powdery and a little difficult to blend. (Posted on 9/30/15)
absolutely amazing!!! Review by Anja
I have hazel-green eyes and I seriously cannot live without this shadow! It makes the green pop.
Nothing, absolutely nothing bad to say about this just simply gorgeous! (Posted on 9/29/15)

Its a MUST BUY.

Just get it! Do it! Review by Meghan
You should buy this shadow! It's buttery no fallout on my very fair skin ( fallout makes me look like I have a black eye!) and it's beautiful!
If you are questioning if you should buy makeup geek just try it! Buy two or three ......or all of them! They are wonderful. They have even spent time improving the shadows that weren't up to par. Every palette you buy has bunker shadows EVERY and you waste money! So just buy makeup geek instead so you can fall in love too! (Posted on 9/18/15)

Great crease colour Review by Grace
I bought this colour after reading all the reviews here and on youtube. I was a little reluctant as I don't wear reds/maroons that often. I paired it up with Preppy on the crease and Bada Bing all over the lid and it looked amazing!!!! (Posted on 7/19/15)
Perfection Review by Cris
"Bitten" is one of my favorite MUG shadows! I love that it is matte and more red than most burgundy shadows. I use this in the Fall/Winter all over the lid for a warm smokey eye or in the outer V. Recently, as a summer look, I have loved using Bitten and Cocoa Bear in the crease, Mango Tango all over the lid, and more Bitten in the outer V. This shadow is extremely versatile, pigmented, and complements my green eyes beautifully! (Posted on 6/29/15)
*crying face* Review by ALMAHA
best e\s ever i loved it when i saw youtubers swatching it and i had to get it amazing love love love love it (Posted on 6/25/15)
A Must Have! Review by Emilie
Bitten is amaaazing and so unique! It blends beautifully and looks great in the crease or all over the lid for a soft red burgundy smoky eye. If there's one Makeup Geek shadow that you need in your collection, it's this one. I love that it's more red toned than most burgundy eyeshadows on the market, since I love red eyeshadows, but it's also muted enough to make it wearable and lovable for anybody. Super pigmented and gorgeous, I'm in love! (Posted on 5/22/15)
Love. Review by Melissa
Bitten is my absolute favorite eyeshadow! I wear it every day with peach smoothie, cocoa bear, corrupt, and grandstand. (Posted on 5/18/15)
Absolutely Amazing 10/10 Review by Madi
By far my most favourite eyeshadow. Super pigmented, super blendable, goes with everything. 10/10 (Posted on 5/12/15)
Oh. My. Gawd. Review by Lacy Joy
I'm so so SO in love with this color! Every single time I wear this ppl ask if I have contacts in. If u have blue eyes this will make them pop! I will repurchase this time n time again. I can't say enough about Makeup Geek in general. I've never been this excited or pleased with a cosmetic brand. And the fact that I don't feel guilty about the money I spend on these, it doesn't get any better than that. This shadow blends so well and it's so pigmented. I have a really hard time with shadows. I get them and they show up so half a**ed on me. And I've bought many high end shadows. None of the shadows that I've bought from Makeup Geek have disappointed me. They ALL show up beautifully on me. Marlena, Thanku for all you do! *HUGS* (Posted on 5/9/15)
Pretty, but not bright red Review by Rachel
I was hoping this would be a nice deep, bright red, but it's more of a brownish burgundy. More of a dried blood color. It's still very pretty and flattering, and I'm happy with it. I'm not as in love with it as many people seem to be, though. Considering it's sold out so often, I thought it would be a lot better. The texture is a little on the dry side, but it blends fine and wears well. I'd give it 3.75 out of 5 stars. (Posted on 4/21/15)
Simply Amazed Review by Estefania
This is my first time purchasing a "quality" make-up. I've always been a little cautious about buying products online and to take "Make-up Guru's" word for it. But I finally decided to take a couple bucks from my pocket and get this eyeshadow. This eyeshadow caught my eye from the moment I was scrolling trying to think of what color I could use as an everyday look, and I have to say that I am impressed of how pigmented these eyeshadows are! I've never owner such a beautiful and great quality eyeshadows before. I was incredibly satisfied by the quality of these eyeshadows, and they stay on ALL DAY! I go to school for 10+ hours and I do have gym this semester and omg it looks like I didn't even touch the eyeshadow once in the whole day. I find this color more of a reddish tone one you apply to the skin, on the pan itself it looks like a more purple color, but once you apply it turns into a maroon color. I bought this eyeshadow and the color "Cocoa Bear" and I found that the two of these eyeshadows make a good combinations. I am definitely investing more money in quality makeup. Makeup Geek certainly didn't disappoint. (Posted on 4/16/15)
BEAUTIFUL DEEP BROWN/BURGUNDY Review by Benita
Very beautiful deep brown/burgundy color! It is much more wearable than it looks on the picture, although it is what made me want it..... Because I am a huge makeup lover/addict; whether it`s a daily wearable color or not, if I like it, I want it! This is a beautidul outer V or crease color... You will not regret getting this one! Have fun with your makeup as Marlena always says! xoxo (Posted on 4/1/15)

isn't as bright red as it looks here. it's like a red brown that looks good on everyone and comes off as more of a neutral. great on outer v (Posted on 3/29/15)
Gorgeous! Review by Kellie
The most beautifully pigmented deep luscious colour I have ever seen! Would suit anyone. Gives such a dramatic look without being too over the top. Will forever repurchase this product xx (Posted on 3/19/15)
Amazing shade! Review by Megan
I love how unique this color is! It's so bold and intense. Absolutely gorgeous under the lash line. It definitely appears more berry red on my lids as opposed to the swatch. Looks nothing like Last Dance in my opinion. Will repurchase :) (Posted on 3/3/15)
Love! Review by Princess
One of favorite shades of purple. I use it just about every day in my crease. (Posted on 2/16/15)
Beautiful crease color Review by Donna
This color is so much fun!! It's really given me a way to change up my eye looks. It pairs so well with brown shades which are my got to.... Pigmentation is amazing, quality is perfect! Makes my Tarte e/s easier to blend. I find myself wanting to use it everyday. This shade is definitely a must have for everyone! (Posted on 1/30/15)
Amazing Review by Brandy
Truly the prettiest shadow Ive ever tried. I use it with corrupt and cinderella and its a perfect combo. Def recommend! (Posted on 1/8/15)
my new holy grail Review by Katelynn
oh my goodness ! ! this eye shadow has transformed my eye make up . when i first received this eye shadow i thought although beautiful it wouldnt be more suited to my moms greeen eyes rather then my own grey/blue eyes. how wrong i was this teamed with burlesque cocoa bear frappe and corrupt has to be the most perfect combination of eyeshadows ever to exist. no eye products have ever made my eye colour pop like these. thank you so much Marlena for creating these beautiful shadows until i discovered this combo i hated my eye colour as i found it boring . seriously purchase you will not regret it (Posted on 12/10/14)
Mix with Foiled shadow Review by Jackie
I really like to mix this with the Mesmerized foil shadow. It just makes such a gorgeous shimmering red-brown. Also I agree with Anja,the shipping was so quick! I got mine within 3 days even though it estimated more. (Posted on 12/5/14)
Amazing! Review by nikki
I love all of these eyeshadow! I have not come across one I've disliked yet! And yes I agree they r better than mac!! Omg I can't believe I just said tht! (Posted on 10/28/14)
A must have Review by Andreja
This shadow has the perfect brick red colour. I love using it on its own and to darken other shadows. It is definitely my favourite shadow from MUG. It is a bit darker than on the site, a bit more red than the swatches show but that only makes it even more stunning.
It is very soft and pigmented, I did not expect a matt shade to be this well formulated, so good job MUG team! I will definitely be repurchasing this one when I run out of it. (Posted on 10/27/14)
Wonderful! Review by Anja
This eyeshadow is so much more then I wanted it to be! So pigmented and deliciously dark, but still colourful. One swipe and the colour payoff was superb. It looks great with my brown eyes and pale skin, it blends perfectly and compliments lighter, colder colours.
I would say it is darker than in the swatch, slightly more red. Beautyful. I would also like to add, that the shipping was super quick, even though I live very far away, it only needed a week and a half to reach me! (Posted on 10/3/14)
Bitten eye shadow Review by Angela
I absolutely love this colour. It really makes my blue eyes pop. Marlena you and your team have done a fantastic job on all your products. I hope in the future you turn your hand to lipsticks as these are my real weakness, but at last I think MAC has now got some competition. (Posted on 9/7/14)
A must Review by anna
This is very unique and I was very excited to get this. It's not as pigmented as some the other MUG shadows, but still very smooth and pretty dark matt red. It's a bit darker than in the pictures and more red than in the swatch. (Posted on 9/3/14)
I have nothing like this! Review by Emme
One of my absolute favorite MUG shadows! I have nothing else like this in my large shadow collection. I love to pair it with a dark warm chocolate brown or to give softness to a matte black look, even with purples to give them warmth. It would be stunning on someone with green eyes. If you are a red shadow lover and even if you are just thinking about maayybe getting this, just get it you will LOVE this. (Posted on 8/29/14)
PERFECT FOR FALL Review by Claudia
I absolutely love this shadow. It is a beautiful brownish red that definitely adds more depth and dimension to a look, especially when paired with cocoa bear in the outer v or crease. It takes on an almost brick tone when applied to my fair skin and is perfect for fall! Great pigmentation. The only issue is that it can be hard to blend at times, but it's not unbearable! (Posted on 8/28/14)
Autumn Review by Rebecca
When I placed my order I was thinking ahead about fall, which will be here soon. Bitten is a perfect fall shade to mix with Chickadee or Cocoa Bear! (Posted on 8/23/14)
More brown than in the picture but still beautiful! Review by Jessica
This is definitely not as red as the picture shows. It looks almost brown in the pan but it applies like a dark "roan" red. I love to use it in the crease with a lighter colour on the lid and Corrupt on the outer corner of the lid. So pigmented and buttery! (Posted on 8/12/14)
Darker in pan then pictured Review by Erica
This will be a beautiful fall color paired with golds or browns ....I can't wait . I wear coco bear all over my lid with cream Brulé and peach smoothie in the crease , I can use bitten the same way ! A true red colored shadow , it is not brown ... If you think you might have the same color or close in the Lorac unzipped palette , you don't. I almost didn't buy this because of that...I'm glad I got it any way. I love makeup geek ...I will always come back ! Great prices and awesome product...thank you so much! (Posted on 6/16/14)
OMG- You have to try this!!! Review by Danielle
So, I was intrigued by this color. I thought it looked gorgeous, but maybe not too wearable...perhaps a little too much for every day use. I decided to order it anyway. I am so glad I did!!!! I am obsessed with it now! The matte texture and consistency is unrivaled. I have hazel green eyes and this color really brings out the green in my eyes. I smoked it out up to the mid point of my lid and then I added MUG's Kryptonite pigment just to the very center of my lids. The olive green/antique gold of the pigment blends so well with this color and both totally emphasize green eyes. I am fully convinced that I must own every MUG product!!!!!! (Posted on 5/5/14)
Wow! Review by Georgina
Finally a red-burgundy that makes green eyes pop! I waited so long for this and it was well worth the wait. After seeing a few tutorials using mac - deep damson, I was in love with the berry and red eyeshadows. However, when it ordered deep damson from the Mac Pro store in Sydney (I was told it was being discontinued so I ended up buying 2 pans) I found that it was a very deep plum than a red/brown. Then started my hunt. Bitten is absolutely beautiful! I've teamed it up with deep damson and it's perfect for the winter months coming up here in Australia. Thanks Marlena! X (Posted on 4/1/14)
Bitten!! Review by Roni
I love this colour. I just received it today March 12, 2014. It was out of stock for a while. This is a very deep rich red/burgundy colour. It's very creamy and pigmented! (Posted on 3/13/14)

Double duty Review by Jen
Love this color and use it often. I dye my hair a deep red and don't want to dye my eyebrows to match. Because this is matte, I mix it with my eyebrow powder and it makes my brows match! Love it (Posted on 10/10/13)
Love... Review by Traci

Pigmented!! Review by Nicole
This is a gorgeous burgundy/maroon color, I was really impressed with the pigmentation and richness of this eyeshadow. It's a definite must have, don't overlook Bitten! I do want to mention though that it is not a flat out matte color, definitely not shimmery, but mine has somewhat of a satin look to it. But it's super soft, blendable, and pigmented! (Posted on 4/14/13)
So pretty and bold Review by Annie
I never thought I could pull off red eyeshadow, but this color is amazing! It's so vibrant and blends so well, it's quickly become one of my favorites. (Posted on 12/25/12)
WOW Review by Catherine
I was a little reluctant to buy this one as reds tend to not work well on me... I received it with the order of my beauty blenders. As it turns out, I actually love it! This colour is gorgeous. It's like the matte version of Burlesque (which I also love).
Excellent! Thanks MUG team! =) (Posted on 12/20/12)
amazed Review by Hera
I'm so glad I chose this color! It's so beautifully unique and versatile. I can use it on my lids and pop a lighter shimmering shade like Cinderella in the inner corners and middle of the lid. Simple, easy and so pretty. (Posted on 11/12/12)

Favorite Review by Noire
Ever since I tried this gorgeous eyeshadow it has been one of my favorite shadows of all time. I love the rich, deep red color and the texture of the shadow is so smooth and easy to blend.
I highly recommend this Makeup Geek eyeshadow to anyone who wants to create a seductive, vampy makeup look. :)

New favorite color! Review by Wendy
Red is my favorite color, and deep red is my favorite. Bitten is such an incredibly beautiful color! The pigmentation is incredible, too. I swatched the color on my hand before using it and wiping off the color off my hand wasn't good enough--I had to wash it thoroughly! This color isn't going anywhere once it's on the eye. I try and incorporate this color into my eyeshadow routing as often as I can because I love it so much. I highly recommend to anyone slightly considering it, because it really does not get better than this! (Posted on 7/6/12)
Beautiful Deep Red! Review by Cynthia
I just recieved this eyeshadow in the mail, along with 14 other MUG eyeshadows I ordered and I would just love a tutorial that included this color!
I wish there were more tutorials using MUG eyeshadows on the website. I have a total of 34 MUG eyeshadows and I truly LOVE each and every one! But I find myself not knowing what to do with all of them so more MUG eyeshadow tutorials would be greatly appreciated.
Marlena and team.. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK! (Posted on 5/16/12)
Good dupe Review by Jailyn
Ever since seeing the Nars duce France trio I have been looking for an affordable dupe for the red color included. I think this is pretty close and at the price is a great buy. Color is a matte red burgundy, it's almost the color of a red rose, very smooth and pigmented. I haven't seen many eye shadows this color which is great. (Posted on 4/16/12)
Best Maroon Around Review by Kristi
This is my second review for someone who hates to write them, but I got Razzleberry, greatest soft red, not loud and blendable. Bitten is the most incredible maroon that I have always searched for, a definite buy, don't just go by the picture! I wear it during the day and I get compliments...so in love with all of these colors...I have 30 right now, but waiting for my out of stock stuff and want pun'kin:( I will eventually get more, but my z-pallet fit these perfectly~Thanks Marlena...now I'm waiting on your lips and face:) Truly, Kristi Johnson xxoo (Posted on 4/15/12)
Just one of the 30 eyeshadows I have of MUG~The Best EVER! Review by Kristi
I normally don't take time to write reviews, but I spent over U.S $250.00 on eye shadows and makeup brushes and this deserves a review! I was not just happy, but with working in many cosmetic lines and trying so many different products and this includes MAC eye shadows and brushes these products are worth definitely a high end price, but for the price we are so lucky to get better quality, payoff, and the customer service that is just not available today. There were a few eye shadows I got just because of the reviews and ended up to my surprise loving them as much if not better then my own selection. I hope this line expands and that the prices stay the same, but I promise anyone who is afraid to try them you will be sitting opening the colors like me saying OMG this is gorgeous and when you go to apply them, especially the matte, which are harder colors to blend, you will be so surprised on how satin and easily they do blend. The brushes are pro, would use these on any of my customers, so if you're getting any brushes after you wash them with hair that is falling out, customer service will exchange. This didn't happen to me, but a fellow MUG lover. So, treat your self and you do not have to throw away your MAC, but I have forgotten about them:) Cannot wait till the rest of my items are back in stock and if you read this Marlena, please create your own blush, lip, and contour line~Fan 4 Life. Be safe and happy. Truly, Kristi Johnson xxoo (Posted on 4/15/12)
