Bite Beauty #038 The Lip Pencil ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a dark plum with subtle, warmer undertones and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation, though not quite opaque, that applied with minimal tugging as the consistency was soft but not really emollient or slippery. The lip pencil was comfortable to use along the edges of the lips and took a bit more work to fill in for all-over coverage. This shade stayed on well for six hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. Bite Beauty recommends wearing this particular shade with Pepper, Rhubarb, or Sake; I think it would work well with Rhubarb (warmer) or Sake (lighter, 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 Gold Creme Lip Gloss ($22.00 for 0.14 fl. oz.) is a bright, true gold with warm, yellow undertones and flecks of gold shimmer and sparkle. This was actually one of the less pigmented shades in the range, and this was also the exact same in texture and color as the holiday release (the box was even gold-hued like the holiday edition). It had semi-opaque pigmentation, but the gloss didn’t apply evenly so there were some areas that had less visible shimmer. This particular shade also seemed to be chocked full of shimmer/sparkle rather than a more pigmented base (the others seemed to actually tint/provide coverage beyond the shimmer). It wore well for five hours on me and was hydrating.

The Creme Lip Gloss is supposed to give a “modern, foiled lip look” with “pearlized color pay off” while softening the lips. The formula had a light-medium weight to it, which I think helped ensure that the shimmer didn’t feel gritty on the lips. It had a little tackiness after an hour of wear, but it was never a really sticky or goopy gloss on. The wear was anywhere from four to five hours, and the formula felt hydrating to me. They had a really strong, mirror-like finish that made them more wearable on their own, as it was hard to notice any imperfections in the coverage. They also worked well layered over various lipsticks (both Bite’s lipsticks as well as other brands’ formulas) for adding shine and sparkle. The gloss had a sweet, fruity scent–the same one found in other Bite lip products.

Bite Beauty Bronze Pearl Creme Lip Gloss ($22.00 for 0.14 fl. oz.) is a rich, chocolaty brown with warm, reddish undertones and lots of gold and copper pearl. It had semi-opaque color coverage that applied fairly evenly, and the shimmer/sparkle distributed well. The consistency was smooth, mostly non-tacky, and comfortable to wear over the five hours it lasted on me.

Bite Beauty #032 The Lip Pencil ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a medium-dark plum with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied decently all-over lips, though I felt like lightly pressing and rubbing my lips together was the easiest way to ensure more even coverage (which is not usually the best method for evening out a lip liner). The texture was thin, clingy but not drying, and comfortable to apply to the lips as it tugged just a bit (when filling in). This shade stayed on well for six hours. Bite Beauty recommends wearing this particular shade with Chai, Verbena, or Honeycomb; I think it would work well with Rhubarb (lighter) or Pepper (warmer) — see comparison swatches.

Bite Beauty #026 The Lip Pencil ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark rosy plum with cooler undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage that applied with minimal tugging. The pencil felt soft enough to line with lips comfortably, but it took a little more work to blend and even out the color once applied (it was easiest to do so by pressing and gently rubbing my lips together). This shade stayed on well for almost six hours and was a touch drying after four hours.
Bite Beauty recommends wearing this particular shade with Fig; I think it would work well with Cotton Candy (brighter, cooler), Kimchi (darker, brighter), or Gin Fizz (cooler) — see comparison swatches.

Bite Beauty #020 The Lip Pencil ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a medium brown with warm undertones and a natural finish. It had good pigmentation that covered the lips with smooth, even coverage, though it just shy of true full coverage. The consistency was soft, thin but not drying or clingy, and felt a touch tacky but did not lift or make the color appear uneven if my lips pressed together (quite the opposite–most effective for blending the color across the lips!). It wore well for five hours on its own and was non-drying. Bite Beauty recommends wearing this particular shade with Honeycomb or Meringue; I think it would work well with Honeycomb (warmer, brighter) — see comparison swatches.
