Bite Beauty Corvina High Pigment Pencil
Bite Beauty Corvina High Pigment Pencil ($24.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “bright coral pink.” It’s a brightened, pink-coral with warm undertones and a soft shine. It’s incredibly pigmented in a single stroke, and the consistency was lightly creamy so the color went on smoothly and evenly. This shade lasted for nearly six hours on me and was moderately hydrating during that time. The only downside is that if you were looking for the “modern matte” finish they promise, this starts out with more of a satin finish, though it does mattify after an hour or so. It has a subtle citrus scent but no taste. Guerlain Geneva (48) (P, $51.00) is more orange. Dior Sunset (660) (LE, $34.00) has shimmer. Estee Lauder Defiant Coral (P, $30.00) is similar. Bite Beauty Crush (P, $28.00) is lighter, more matte. Marc Jacobs Beauty Shout (138) (LE, $30.00) is darker, pinker. Maybelline Shocking Coral (P, $7.49) is darker. Make Up For Ever #37 (P, $19.00) is slightly darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
Bite Beauty Violet High Pigment Pencil ($24.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “lavender violet.” It’s a muted, medium magenta purple with a soft, satiny shine. The pigmentation is excellent with full color coverage in one layer, but the finish has more shine than you’d expect based on the brand’s description. It wears well for five hours and was lightly hydrating while worn. It has a subtle citrus scent but no taste. Too Faced Melted Violet (P, $21.00) is purpler, brighter. MAC Happy-Go-Lucky (LE, $16.00) is brighter, pinker. Bite Beauty Violet (P, $24.00) is brighter. Bite Beauty Grape (LE, $24.00) is brighter. Bite Beauty Satsuma (LE, $24.00) is brighter, pinker.
