Bite Beauty #008 The Lip Pencil ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a muted, peachy coral with warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had good color coverage that went on evenly and smoothly. The texture was velvety but not actually wet, creamy, or emollient, and it was thinner overall, so it clung to lips. I didn’t feel like it was drying, nor was it uncomfortable to wear, but it did emphasize my lip lines a bit on its own. It lasted for five hours by itself and was neither drying nor hydrating. Bite Beauty recommends wearing this particular shade with Meringue; I think it would work well with Sorbet (brighter, pinker), Rhubarb (darker), Meringue (lighter, slightly warmer), or Fig (darker, cooler) — see comparison swatches.

The Lip Pencil formula is supposed to have “perfect, allover, opaque lip coverage” with a lightweight feel. I think the formula worked exceptionally well for lining the edges of the lips and keeping color on longer and more within the lines (e.g. a lipstick feathers on its own wouldn’t feather when layered over one of the lip pencils). Some shades worked well for filling in the lips for all over color, but some applied more unevenly or were less comfortable to fill in with. The consistency was soft, just barely creamy–almost more velvety than creamy–and oddly spreadable, as I found the best way to “even” out the coverage was to press my lips together, and while there was a touch of tackiness, the color almost always appeared more even after that than if I kept trying to maneuver and push the color around with the pencil itself. They do feel lightweight, and they lasted anywhere from five to six hours on their own. They weren’t spectacularly long-wearing as a standalone lip product, but they extended the wear of lipsticks by two to four hours.

Bite Beauty #002 The Lip Pencil ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a light-medium pink with strong, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had good pigmentation in one stroke, and it applied decently for all-over color on my lips. The texture was thin, smooth without being truly creamy or emollient, and I found the best way to smooth and even out the color was to press and lightly rub my lips together. This shade lasted for five hours on its own and was non-drying but some color seemed to clump in my lip lines. Bite Beauty recommends wearing this particular liner with Sugarcane; I think it would work well with Sorbet (slightly darker, pinker), Meringue (lighter, warmer), Sugarcane (lighter), and Fig (darker) — see comparison swatches.

Bite Beauty Agave Lip Balm & Sugar Lip Scrub Reviews & Photos

Original

Bite Beauty Agave Lip Balm ($18.00 for 0.15 oz.) is supposed to be a hydrating, restorative lip balm that comes in a twist-up tube. The texture was firmer in the tube, and there was some tugging until the balm started to melt against my lips. I also went through a tube in three weeks–an entire tube!–as it seemed to wear down quickly. The original Lip Mask lasts all night for me, but the Lip Balm only stayed on for two hours, tops. It felt more like a film of product on the lips than something imparting real moisture or nourishment to my lips.

While I’m a huge fan of the brand’s original Agave Lip Mask, this fell short for me. It just did not seem to keep my lips hydrated or restored; my lips felt dry and never seemed in good condition during the three weeks I used this for. As soon as I stopped using it, within a few days of going back to my normal routine (Jack Black Lip Balm during the day, Clarins Lip Balm at night unless it was a lip-swatching-bonanza kind of day, then Bite’s Agave Lip Mask), and my lips felt and looked so much better.

Bite Beauty #036 The Lip Pencil
Bite Beauty #036 The Lip Pencil

Bite Beauty The Lip Pencil ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) released a week or two ago, and it is available in 22 shades. I really hope they’ll expand the range, as a lot of these were very similar to each other (slightly lighter/darker, warmer/cooler) and don’t actually cover the entire range of Bite lip colors yet–there’s a noticeable lack of beige/peach, brighter coral/fuchsia, orange, red, and brown shades (along with Bite’s more one-off shades like Kale and Squid Ink).

Here are the shades that didn’t have a great matching liner: Porcini, Cremini, Portobello, Enoki, Whiskey, Kale, Squid Ink, Lavender Jam, Taro, Black Truffle, Jam, Nori, Sangria, Radish, Beetroot, Tannin, Eggplant, Cotton Candy, Kimchi, Gazpacho, Sour Cherry, Spritzer, Gin Fizz, Dragonfruit, Cayenne, Gingersnap, Sweet Cream, Pickled Ginger, Persimmon, Molasses, Souffle. Of course, you can always mix and match your lip liner with your lipstick, and with the full coverage aspect of most of the Amuse Bouche range, an exact match may be unnecessary.

With high precision texture that defines the lip line, The Lip Pencil provides perfect, allover, opaque lip coverage. Bite Beauty’s lightest formula yet, it offers addictively creamy coverage that’s so lightweight it feels like nothing on your lips. The case is an artisanal wood barrel that encapsulates whipped shea butter and three times the amount of pigments for a perfectly defined line.

Bite Beauty Cava Luminous Creme Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a soft, medium mauve with warmer, pink undertones and a soft sheen. The Luminous Creme formula is supposed to be pigmented, hydrating, and long-wearing. It had good color payoff, though it was not fully opaque, with a lightweight consistency that had moderate slip and was comfortable to wear. Some of the color pulled into my lip lines. The color lasted three hours on me but was hydrating. The Amuse Bouche version appeared lighter, a little grayer, with better coverage and longer wear.
