It’s taken me a long time to try the lip pencils by Bite Beauty and I’m certainly glad I did. A Canadian brand, who continues to make their products in their home-base of Toronto Ontario by hand, with food grade ingredients. I have four of the plethora of nude shades that I could pull off and wear easily on their own, or under a gloss or lipstick. These pencils are highly pigmented and a hydrating formula. Finally a lip pencil that doesn’t tug on your lips and be all irritating and drying, who wants that! Sheesh. However, they are matte on the lips, so keep that in mind.
I think I made a good choice from my selection that I requested from PR, because I don’t think there’s one I wouldn’t keep. I do have a favourite shade though, and it’s the one in 008. It’s kind of a peachy nude on me, and I love that shade.
I found that shade 010 was similar to my natural lip colour, so I’ll keep that in mind if I want to wear something bold yet want to line my lips. I find that the finish of the lip pencils aren’t totally matte, but do have a bit of sheen to it. If you’re a fan of Bite already, you know that they’ve expanded the 22 pink-nude/easy to wear shades recently, with bold fun shades for summer. They have some great saturated colours!
The Lip Pencil – Bite Beauty is $21 at Sephora.
