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.

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.

Make Me (08)

Tom Ford Make Me (08) Lip Contour Duo ($53.00 for 0.08 oz.) contains a slim lip color with a twist-up “Lip Shaper,” where the lip color hides in the base of the component. The duo features a deeper, muted plum with warmer undertones and a lighter, cooler plum lip pencil (I don’t think they match that well, actually).

The Lip Shaper is designed for enhancing and defining the lips, and it can be used to shape or “create an ombre effect” to the lips, while the lip color is supposed to be full coverage. Sadly, I really like the lip color formula in the duo; it’s very creamy, hydrating, and comfortable to wear with four to six-hour wear time, but the Lip Shaper formulation left a lot to be desired. I struggled with using the Lip Shapers as they often broke on me, as they were quite brittle, and the majority were very dry, so they tugged and dragged on the lips. They also had bits of sparkle, which did not work well for defining the edge of the lips nor did it work out for filling in the lips.

MAC I Get So OOC Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a deep, plummy brown with subtle, warm undertones and gold, red, and pink pearl. It had semi-opaque color coverage that went on evenly and smoothly. The consistency was soft, lightly emollient, and didn’t tug on the lips when applied directly from the tube. The color lasted for four hours on me.

A/W '16

Tom Ford A/W ’16 Lip Contour Duo ($53.00 for 0.08 oz.) contains a slim lip color with a twist-up “Lip Shaper,” where the lip color hides in the base of the component. The duo has a very light beige lipstick paired with a very light beige lip pencil (with sparkle), and the two are very similar in color and undertone.

The Lip Shaper is designed for enhancing and defining the lips, and it can be used to shape or “create an ombre effect” to the lips, while the lip color is supposed to be full coverage. Sadly, I really like the lip color formula in the duo; it’s very creamy, hydrating, and comfortable to wear with four to six-hour wear time, but the Lip Shaper formulation left a lot to be desired.

Tom Ford Devil Inside (06) Lip Contour Duo ($53.00 for 0.08 oz.) contains a slim lip color with a twist-up lip pencil, where the lip color hides in the base of the lip pencil. The duo features a bright, coral-red with warm, orange undertones and a matching lip liner that runs a little lighter and redder with gold sparkle.

According to the brand, the lip pencil is designed for enhancing and defining the lips, and it can be used to shape or “create an ombre effect” to the lips, while the lip color is supposed to be full coverage. Sadly, I really like the lip color formula in the duos; it’s very creamy, hydrating, and comfortable to wear with four to six hour wear time, but the lip pencil formulation left a lot to be desired. I struggled with using the lip pencils as they often broke on me, as they were quite brittle, and the majority were very dry, so they tugged and dragged on the lips. They also had bits of sparkle, which did not work well for defining the edge of the lips nor did it work out for filling in the lips.
