Bite Beauty #082 The Lip PencilBite Beauty #082 The Lip Pencil ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a medium-dark brick red with warmer undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had rich, opaque pigmentation in a single stroke, which translated well when I used it just to the line edges of my lips, as it was opaque and did not have any ragged edges. However, when I used it all over my lips, it wasn’t quite as opaque. The consistency was smooth and blendable while it adhered well to lips for strong, over six-hour wear. The formula felt neither drying nor hydrating on me. I think it would work best with Amuse Bouche shades: Maple (warmer), Tannin (cooler, darker), Gazpacho (cooler) 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.

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.

#078

Bite Beauty #078 The Lip PencilBite Beauty #078 The Lip Pencil ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a medium-dark red with cool, blue undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single stroke, and I was able to get the same level of coverage when I filled in my lips with the pencil. The texture was lightweight and creamy enough to maneuver easily along the curves of the lip line. I blended the color by pressing my lips together gently. This shade stayed on well for almost eight hours and was non-drying. I think it would work best with Amuse Bouche shades: Sour Cherry (cooler), Tannin (warmer) see comparison swatches.

Bite Beauty #074 The Lip PencilBite Beauty #074 The Lip Pencil ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a vibrant, medium-dark orange with warm, red undertones and a semi-matte finish. It was richly pigmented and applied easily across the lips, whether to line the edges or to fill in entirely. The consistency was smooth, lightweight, and creamy enough not to be uncomfortable to use. This shade stayed on well for almost eight hours and felt a bit drying after six hours of wear. I think it would work best with Amuse Bouche shades: GTA (brighter), Caynne (redder), Persimmon (slightly lighter) see comparison swatches.

Some good, solid performing reds here! I’m quite impressed by #78 as a 95% dupe for Ruby Woo, that lasts 8 hours and is non-drying!
Bite has really hit the ground running with these, and most of us, myself included, definitely appreciate that you’ve been keeping up the pace with getting these in-depth, honest reviews out to us in such a timely manner! Kudos to you, Christine! ?

I will be getting the first two lip liners! I prefer pencil liners that need to be sharpened. And I always like to have brick red lip liners, and cool red lip liners on hand!

078 is my favorite out of this group. These are really beautiful. I am headed to Seattle and Sacramento so will be able to see in person. Can’t wait as I have been using my lip liners to enhance longevity and keep my lipsticks from bleeding. I swear my lip lines are getting deeper everyday regardless of my increased treatment. Getting older sucks big time, LOL.

Awww!! I feel like my lip lines are deeper now than they were before, and it makes me worried for the future!

My daughter gave me a Sephora gift card for Mothers day. I’m going to have to pick up 074 to go with all of my orange-red lipsticks this summer.

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!
