Bite Beauty Best Bite Remix

Bite Beauty Best Bite Remix ($25.00 for 0.20 oz.) includes four mini-sized High Pigment Lip Pencils. They come in a red, metal tin (much like a mint tin), and each pencil is 0.05 oz. Full-sized pencils are $24.00 for 0.09 oz. or $266.67/oz., which makes this set worth $53.33. Sable and Winterberry seem to be exclusive to this, while Rhubarb and Pomegranate are part of the permanent range. I have reviewed a few shades previously here, and my experience with the pencils in this set are similar to ones I’ve had with full-sized, which is a good sign. All four shades were quite pigmented with creamy, glide-on textures that never dragged on the lips, but they weren’t slippery, so they didn’t slide around once applied. The wear varied from shade to shade, but they wore four hours or longer (see below). They’re comfortable to wear, as they don’t cling, and they were lightly hydrating. Bite describes the finish as “modern matte,” but they’re more satin to natural in finish–there’s a noticeable sheen.

Sable is described as a “nude.” It’s a light, rosy beige with soft, warm undertones and a light sheen. It had opaque pigmentation that went on evenly and smoothly, and over time, the color faded but didn’t pull into lip lines (often an issue with lighter shades like this). The color wore well for four and a half hours on me. See swatches of dupes / view dupes side-by-side.

Rhubarb is described as a “plum rose.” It’s a muted, medium-dark pinky-plum with a luminous finish. This shade had full color coverage, and again, it went on beautifully–no dragging, just even, smooth color. It lasted for five hours and was lightly hydrating over time. See swatches of dupes / view dupes side-by-side.

Winterberry is described as a “festive raspberry red.” It’s a berry-red with subtle, cool undertones and a luminous sheen. This shade a little more slip compared to the other three, though it still went on evenly and smoothly (and I didn’t have any feathering/bleeding over time). The color lasted for six and a half hours, and it left behind a soft stain. See swatches of dupes / view dupes side-by-side.

Pomegranate is described as a “rich red.” It’s a bright, medium red with soft, blue undertones. I can tell it’s blue based, as there is a pinkish tone to it when blended out, but it reads closer to neutral due to my coloring (so I’d expect it to be a bit cooler on cooler skin tones). It had very, very rich color payoff that glided on easily and delivered smooth, even color coverage. The color lasted for six hours and stained slightly. See swatches of dupes / view dupes side-by-side.

Have you tried the Annabelle Twistups? They are similar to these but at CAD$10 a pop (0.05g each, $200 an ounce). Not sure if their products are sold in the US but their website ships to the US.

WOW, this looks AMAZING *HEART EYES* Classic but fresh colors and amazing performance?? And every shade looks great on you, Christine! I’m for sure getting my hands on this!

OMGGGGG. Is it me, or does Sable look very close to Descanso from NARS??? $25 for a set of four is amazing! I might pick this up soon! Thanks for the swatches, Christine! All four look divine on you!

I can honestly say my jaw dropped when I saw these swatches, and immediately placed an order for it. Thank you for the review, and as always, you look impeccable in your pictures!

Thank you, Christine. I ordered this set already (from Sephora.com to Germany) but now I am happy that you rate it so good πŸ™‚
Btw: I love your reviews, Thank you very much!

Lovely! You look so beautiful! I’m surprised how much you’re able to make these look like G on your lips…. What IS your secret? πŸ˜€

You’re welcome, Christine! I’m constantly drinking good water and great coconut water, I never drink soda or coffee, sometimes herbal tea, but my rapid dehydration rate, though I do all th steps you mentioned, minus try on many lippies, and I eat foods full of water, but I’ve not been able to retain the moisture. You’re lucky! Also, were you aware that you don’t have brown eyes? They’re actually a shade of green with the inner circle around the pupil is brown, giving the illusion its your whole eye color! I’d actually say you have a brown:hazel inner circle. It’s not totally brown or hazel, but the real eye color is a green! Fascinating, huh? πŸ˜€

I usually say my eyes are hazel, since they do have green to them. Some people have told me that my eyes look like they have leopard spots. I think they look like tree roots, LOL. I don’t really mean that in a self-deprecating way, but I see strands more than spots!

A sunflower! <3 but you definitely have cat eyes.. The entire placement of your eye and skin space is sooo different from mine that I love seeing how you place your color! Quite blessed, you are!

Ahhhh so pretty! And affordable! But I’m just gonna sit over here and wait for Bite to be released in Sweden… haha. Wish I had a friend in the US who could be my shipping service!

I really like the look of these. Shame that Bite isn’t easy to get over here, I think. I have one of their lip pencils but that was from my one and only order from Sephora. Worth another order? Not sure. I need to save all my money these days! Still, these do look nice. Now Guerlain is a different ball game altogether. At the very least I’ll be buying the lipstick from this year’s holiday collection….I can’t help myself!

I feel like as Orgasm is to NARS palettes and Carbon is to MAC palettes, Pomegranate is to Bite’s lip sets. Despite already having Pomegranate (and it not being a shade that I could use up quickly), I’m really loving the other shades in this set. Rhubarb is my favorite! It’s such a lovely shade and it’d be great for work!

I LOVE bite beauty and own quite a few of the lipsticks but none of these pencils yet so I will definitely pick them up…I believe this set is just under 30$ in Canada

EEK!!! I just ordered these and after seeing your swatches I am even more excited to get them (Which I didn’t even think was possible πŸ™‚
I LOVE how you do swatches, bare lips, lip color, and then a full face picture! It is SO nice to see all the different pictures and it is so informative!!!

I see that you bought this, Christine. Is it in stores yet, or did you buy it online? I’ve been waiting, I’m not sure for what, to buy lippies from Bite, and this set really fills the bill for me.

I don’t know that I’ve never not qualified for free shipping at Sephora, lol! But I think it’s because I have VIB or Flash shipping? I can’t remember now.

I think you can do a locator search though to see if a nearby store has it in stock πŸ™‚

Promo pictures can be so deceiving. The colors look much better in real life pictures! I kinda want this set now. I just wish the pinky red was a bright pink instead. Still a really cute set though!

rhubarb and Sable are both so so so cute! I’m deeply in love of those nude/plum shades these days as they are so wearable and a little “dressed up”. And even better, only $25 to get them. (*adding it to my Sephora shopping cart as I’m typing this. lol). Thanks for the review, Christine! You look great in Winterberry!

I love those pencils. I bought last year’s set, which is very very similar to this one. So I’m a little disappointed that it isn’t really different.

But I’ll probably still get it if there’s a sale… because I really do love those pencils, even if I’ve yet to finish a Rhubarb…

Here you go!

THE MAKEUP LOOK
On face: Guerlain Parure Gold Foundation, Guerlain Les Voilettes Loose Powder, Chanel Jersey Blush. On eyes: Laura Mercier Rosegold, Moonlight, Amethyst, Cocoa Caviar Sticks.

Not Jenna, but Rhubarb paired with Tarte Exposed is my go to look for Important Professional Events.

I also like it with Becca Shimmer Souffle in Fig/Opal.

I don’t always wear blush, but when I do, I usually use Benefit Georgia (discontinued). I spend so much time trying to neutralize my skin’s redness that applying blush seems counterproductive.

This wasn’t on my radar but your pics can be very convincing πŸ˜‰ It doesn’t hurt that the price is great too. I went and swatched them tonight and will definitely be picking this up!

Hi Christine! Fantastic swatches (as usual). Just wondering how you (or any ladies on here) feel this would look on a medium tan skin tone (nc42). Thanks!

I’ve been lusting after this since day 1 and took a look at it in sephora but I ended up buying kat von d’s liquid lipstick in underage red (not a great name..) but I think I’ll pick this up just because winterberry and rhubarb look so nice

OMG! I have enough lipstick to last me 10 years, but this set is too good to pass up. That’s about $6.25 a BITE lipstick, and even if they are smaller size, there’s so much pigment it should last a while. Thanks for the review !

What a lovely set! I would love to have it, but we don’t have Bite here as far as I know, so IΓ€ll just drool over it and do my best to forget all about it πŸ™‚

This is a good value which is one of the reasons I might get it. The colours are nice as well. Injury don’t find myself drawn to pencil/stick lip products these days. πŸ™‚

Christine, do you know if there are anymore sets from Bite on the way for the holidays? I saw a very large collector’s set of lipsticks last year and some that were 2-sided in a medium pack. I love this one but Rhubarb already came in a Sephora give me Lip set from last year.

I haven’t heard anything, but I usually don’t hear anything from Bite until it’s on Sephora’s website or maybe a day ahead!

Thank you, Christine, these colors are beautiful, and I’m happy to hear that the performance is, as well! This gets added to my wish list, for sure!

WOW! i just went to get last years set to see if there were any duplicates and i just realised that there was a mirror on the bottom that had to be flipped around!! all this time and i never realize that there was a mirror!!

I think there’s one repeat in there (Rhubarb) from what I’ve seen readers saying, but it’s possible the range isn’t that different (even if the names are!).

Hmm, these look gorgeous on you, and I really like the one Bite lipstick I own. But I am on the fence about these. Rhubarb would be perfect on me and I am sure I could always use Sable to lighten some other shades if it was too ghostly pink for my fair neutral to warm complexion. I am not sure about whether Winterberry or Pomegranate are too blue toned for brights I could wear. Oddly, I look best in warm lip colors– pinky browns, rusts, wines, and anything browned. Pomegranate almost looks like a slightly cool orange, which I can totally pull off. Winterberry probably won’t work. But three out of four would make it worth it.

If you could use three of the four, they definitely could work. Maybe Winterberry blotted as a stain? Or you could top with a warmer gloss.

I want this set so badly! >_<

It's so cost-effective, and the colours are so pretty, and I *really* want to try Bite!! I hope I can get my little rogueish mitts on this!

thank you for posting this. my niece loved the bite pencil set i got her for Christmas last year. i think i might get her this one too even though they look similar.

Gah! WANT. Holidays are killer for all the amazing sets! (and literally murder on my wallet LOL).

BTW Christine, LOVE the eye look you’ve got goin’ on here!! So bright and fresh, warm and illuminating, and the shape you’ve created! Magnifique!

I thought I already commented on this. This is a nice set! All of the pencils are such pretty shades! And the total cost is $25? If so, that is highly affordable! I’ve been wanting to try Bite Beauty.
