Bite Beauty #016 The Lip PencilBite Beauty #016 The Lip Pencil ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark plum with strong, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable color payoff with a soft, velvety texture that glided on with only a bit of tugging when I went to fill in my lips. It was more comfortable to apply along the edges of the lips, though. The lip pencil lasted for six hours on its own, and it was just a touch drying at the end. Bite Beauty recommends wearing this particular shade with Pepper, Chai, or Rhubarb; I think it would work well with Rhubarb (brighter) or Pepper (warmer) -- see comparison swatches.

With high precision texture that defines the lip line, The Lip Pencil provides perfect, allover, opaque lip coverage. Bite Beauty’s lightest formula yet, it offers addictively creamy coverage that’s so lightweight it feels like nothing on your lips. The case is an artisanal wood barrel that encapsulates whipped shea butter and three times the amount of pigments for a perfectly defined line.
