Bite Beauty #002 The Lip PencilBite 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.

Bite Beauty #004 The Lip PencilBite Beauty #004 The Lip Pencil ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a light-medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had great pigmentation–nearly opaque–with a lightweight, thin but not clingy, texture that was fairly comfortable to apply and blended well for even coverage. The color wore well for five hours on its own and was non-drying. Bite Beauty recommends wearing this particular liner with Sugarcane or Fig; I think it would work well with Sorbet (a bit brighter) or Fig (darker) — see comparison swatches.

Bite Beauty #006 The Lip PencilBite Beauty #006 The Lip Pencil ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a light-medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly without tugging on the lips. The texture was thin, a little clingy with a touch of tackiness, but it was comfortable to wear for the five hours it lasted for. Bite Beauty recommends wearing this particular shade with Sugarcane, Fig, or Meringue; I think it would work well with Sake (darker, more muted), Fig (darker, warmer), and Sugarcane (lighter, warmer) — see comparison swatches.

Comments that do not adhere to our comment policy may be removed. Discussion and debate are highly encouraged but we expect community members to participate respectfully. Please keep discussion on-topic, and if you have general feedback, a product review request, an off-topic question, or need technical support, please contact us!

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

These look almost lethal in their pointy sharp tips. What are they like to sharpen, Christine? I’m guessing that retaining that sharp tip is almost impossible (and messy?).

Haha! Yes, they were VERY sharp and long, and I was honestly surprised they did not all break on me when I tried swatching! I had one break on me, and sharpening it was fine with UD’s sharpener for me – but no, you will not get the point they have here upon arrival! (IMO, a good thing, as it would be too sharp for comfort!)

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
