Bite Beauty #096 The Lip Pencil ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a deep, raspberry red with subtle, cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had good pigmentation–just shy of full coverage when I drew a single line but only semi-opaque when applied all-over my lips–that was blendable by pressing my lips together and rubbing gently, which evened out the color after initial application. The lip pencil felt lightly creamy but not emollient or too slick, so it adhered well to lips and lasted for over six hours. The formula seemed neither drying nor hydrating to me. I think it would work best with Amuse Bouche shades: Jam (darker), Radish (brighter), Beetroot (redder) 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.

NARS Orgasm Lipstick ($28.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, medium pink base with warmer undertones and fine, gold pearl with a few larger, gold sparkles. It’s a new, permanent shade that’s part of the Satin Lipstick formula, which is described as a “lustrous, long-wearing lipstick infused with conditioners to provide comfortable wear and sumptuously, silky color.” In particular, this shade was described as “sheer provocation” and as a “pink color with a translucent touch” — seemed like code for sheer.

I found the formula to be thin, emollient but not slippery–it applied without tugging on my lips but did not slide around on my lips, though there was a smidgen of color that gathered in my deeper lip lines on my bottom lip. It had semi-sheer coverage, which was buildable to medium coverage. The lipstick lasted for three hours on my lips and seemed very lightly hydrating. There was no discernible taste or smell.

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.

Baby Doll Against BS

Pretty Vulgar Baby Doll Against BS Bury Them with a Smile Matte Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium pink with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had good pigmentation–just shy of full coverage–that applied evenly across the lips and did not drag or tug. The consistency was smooth, thin but not clingy, and comfortable to wear for the four hours this shade lasted on me, though there was some color that had sunk into my lip lines (both initially as well as later on during wear). The formula felt neither drying nor hydrating over time.

It’s supposed to have “full coverage” with a hydrating, “long-lasting” formula and an “ultimate matte finish.” I only purchased three shades (there are eight) to try, but based on those three, the formula has a smooth, velvety consistency that is thinner but not clingy. There was enough slip that they did not tug when applied directly to the lips, but they did not slide around while worn. There was a tendency for color to settle into my lip lines a bit, which was more noticeable with the lightest shade I tried. They lasted between four to six and a half hours and were non-drying. I didn’t notice any scent or taste.

Myth

MAC Myth Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is light-medium, peachy orange with warm, yellow undertones and very fine, gold pearl. It had medium to semi-opaque pigmentation that applied unevenly and was incredibly prone to pulling into my lip lines. The gloss was lighter weight than others in the range, but it still had the tackier feel of Lipglass. This shade wore nicely for four hours on me and was slightly hydrating.

The Lipglass formula is supposed to be “pigmented, very shiny and can impart subtle or dramatic color” that can be worn “on its own, over lip pencil or lipstick” and will “condition lips.” MAC could use an update on the description as some shades are more pigmented than others but several are sheerer and likely intended to be that way. The formula has a very glossy, high-shine finish with a light-medium weight and moderate tackiness. I find that newer Lipglasses (over the last couple of years) are smoother and not quite as tacky as the formula was many years ago. They wear from three to six hours on me and are usually lightly hydrating. MAC recently updated the shade range and packaging for the range (though the formula was said to be unchanged), so worth noting is that with that packaging change came a reduction in quantity to 0.10 fl. oz. (was 0.17 fl. oz.), which may matter for some but not everyone.

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.
