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.Â 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.
Let’s jump into some swatches!
Bite Beauty Lip Pencil in 002 (a nude pink)
Bite Beauty Lip Pencil in 004 (a rosey pink)
Bite Beauty Lip Pencil in 008 (my fave!)
Bite Beauty Lip Pencil in 010 (rosey mauve)
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.Â 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.
