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 #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.

Bite Beauty #014 The Lip Pencil ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark plum with cooler undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that covered the lips with even color. The consistency was slightly soft, firm without being painful, and was forgiving enough that I was able to fill in most of my lips. It wore well for five and a half hours, and it was a touch drying toward the end. Bite Beauty recommends wearing this particular shade with Sake; I think it would work well with
Gin Fizz (brighter, lighter, cooler), Dragonfruit (brighter, deeper), Eggplant (darker), or Mauvember (darker) — see comparison swatches.

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.
