Bite Beauty #062 The Lip Pencil ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a light-medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had opaque pigmentation in a single stroke, which was just creamy enough to maneuver over the lips for filling in as well as for lining. I noticed that a little bit of color pulled into my lip lines but did not seem to get worse over time. The color lasted for six hours and was non-drying. I think it would work best with Amuse Bouche shades: Sorbet (slightly pinker), Fig (pinker, more muted) see comparison swatches.

The Lip Pencil is supposed to have “perfect, allover, opaque lip coverage” with a lightweight feel. The formula worked exceptionally well for lining the edges of the lips and keeping lipstick 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 a few 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 it was infinitely easier to even out the color by rubbing my lips together than applying more product. The formula has a lightweight feel on the lips, and the wear ranged from five to six hours for light to medium-hued shades with some of the deeper and richer shades lasting well over six hours. They will require sharpening, and as they are creamier, it was easiest to keep them in a cool place or in the freezer (for a few minutes) prior to sharpening to minimize any mess in the sharpener.

Bite Beauty #070 The Lip Pencil ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark coral with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It was intensely pigmented with a smooth, velvety consistency that spread well across the lips for all-over color as well as for lining just the edges of the lips. The lip liner was comfortable to use, while the resulting color stayed on well for over six hours. The formula did not seem to be drying until after eight hours of wear. I think it would work best with Amuse Bouche shade(s): Pickled Ginger (slightly lighter) see comparison swatches.

Bite Beauty #064 The Lip Pencil ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a bright, medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had good pigmentation in a single layer/stroke, which applied fairly even to bare skin but was blendable for more even results by pressing my lips together and rubbing gently. The consistency was creamy without being too slippery, and it “dried” and felt lightweight on the lips. There was a bit of color that sat in my lip lines, though. It adhered well and stayed put for over six hours, while the formula felt drying just after the six-hour mark on me. I think it would work best with Amuse Bouche shades: Sangria (brighter, darker, cooler), Sorbet (lighter, warmer) see comparison swatches.

Bite Beauty #058 The Lip Pencil ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a bright white with neutral undertones and a matte finish. Compared to a lot of white-based products, it did not apply the worst, but it would be hard to wear it on its own as it had a tendency to appear drier and clump on itself. It would be best for lining the edges of the lips or underneath another lip product (likely to lighten it). The consistency was lightly creamy but quick to dry down–it looked drier than it felt, though–and could not be totally evened out by pressing my lips together, like most of Bite’s lip liners can be. This shade lasted for four and a half hours on its own, though it seemed to separate more and more around my lip lines over time.

Bite Beauty #052 The Lip Pencil ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a blackened greenish-teal with cool undertones and a satin finish. There was very, very fine pearl that kept it from appearing totally matte, but it did not have true shine once applied to the lips. It looked blacker and had less noticeable green coloring on my lips compared to swatched on my arm. The consistency was lightly creamy and easy to maneuver along the edges of my lips. It applied decently as an all-over color but was evened out by pressing my lips together. It lasted for over six hours and was non-drying. I think it would work best with Amuse Bouche shade(s): Kale (lighter, greener on) see comparison swatches.

Kat Von D Skully & Lemmy Everlasting Lip Liners

Kat Von D Skully Everlasting Lip Liner ($18.00 for 0.009 oz.) is a deep black with neutral undertones and a smattering of silver micro-sparkle over a matte finish. It had good color coverage in one pass, though it took two layers for full opacity. The texture was drier initially but became creamier as I used more of the product. It did not apply evenly, though it wasn’t the worst that I have tried in the range. The color stayed on for five and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating while worn.

The Everlasting Lip Liner is supposed to have “24-hour wear” with “water-resistant wear and weightless color” that has the “ultimate pigmentation.” It was created to be paired with Kat Von D’s liquid and regular lipstick ranges but also “worn on its own.” The formula has been fairly creamy, which made it easy to line the edges of my lips, but the skinnier pencil made it less practical for really filling in the lips. I also felt like that, while creamy, some shades still skipped when I attempted to fill in my lips. The texture was more of a soft matte initially, which enabled me to press my lips together and even out some of the product before it fully dried down. It was water-resistant, and I had no trouble drinking water or coffee, but I’ve yet to try one that actually made it through a meal particularly well–they all wore substantially away from the center of the lips and turn patchy by the end of a meal. The Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks tend to wear longer on me, actually. The formula was neither drying nor hydrating. Some were more wearable (in terms of evenness) on their own than others.
