Bite Beauty Bouquet High Pigment Pencil
Bite Beauty Bouquet High Pigment Pencil ($24.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “peachy pink.” It’s a light-medium, yellow-toned pink with a semi-matte finish. It’s richly pigmented, as described, though the finish has a tiny bit more shine initially than a “modern matte” typically has, but that little bit of shine is worn away within an hour and a half of wear. The consistency is moderately creamy so it glides on well while still applying evenly. The color itself stays on well for four and a half hours and is lightly hydrating. It has a very subtle citrus-y scent. Too Faced Melted Peony (P, $21.00) is lighter. Laura Mercier Heartbreaker (LE, $23.00) is cooler-toned. YSL Corail Jalouse (32) (P, $34.00) is similar. YSL Opera Rose (29) (P, $34.00) is brighter, pinker. MAC Giddy (P, $16.00) is slightly warmer, more shimmery. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
Bite Beauty Chablis High Pigment Pencil ($24.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “soft coral rose.” It’s a softly muted, medium coral-pink with warm undertones and a satin shine. This shade had fantastic, full color coverage, though the finish wasn’t quite as matte as described. It stayed on well for five and a half hours with a lightly hydrating formula. It was comfortable to wear, and it was easy to apply as the texture was creamy without being heavy. The muted quality to the color is what makes it different from some other corals, which have a brightness to them. It has a very subtle citrus-y scent. Givenchy Corail Decollete (303) (P, $36.00) is slightly pinker. Givenchy Brun Vintage (105) (P, $36.00) is more muted, less coral. MAC Mystical (LE, $16.00) is less pink. Guerlain Geneva (48) (P, $51.00) is brighter, warmer. MAC Toying Around (LE, $16.00) is brighter. Estee Lauder Defiant Coral (P, $30.00) is brighter, darker. Bite Beauty Crush (P, $28.00) is brighter. Marc Jacobs Beauty Shout (138) (LE, $30.00) is darker. MAC Out for Passion (LE, $20.00) is sheerer, warmer. Tarte Tulip (P, $16.00) is less pigmented. MAC Elegant Accent (P, $22.00) is pinker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
