Kat Von D Satellite Everlasting Lip Liner ($18.00 for 0.009 oz.) is a bright, medium blue with subtle, cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It had good color coverage in a single pass, though it was harder to get really even, opaque coverage when I tried to fill in both my upper and lower lips with the pencil. I noticed that while it had felt creamy on the very first use, the outer edge dried out a bit for the next use (even though I put the cap back on!) so I had to get through that layer before it felt creamy again. There isn’t a lot of product in the tube (most twist-up liners have similar amounts of product), so wasting any is less than ideal! The color applied with moderate unevenness, but I was able to press my lips together and minimize some of it. It started to break down after seven and a half hours of wear, and as soon as I ate, over half of it came off (not a particularly greasy meal). The upside was that the formula was lightweight and non-drying.

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.

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.
