Bite Beauty #018 is a very warm-toned, medium plum with a matte finish. It is a permanent lip liner that retails for $18.00 and contains 0.05 oz.
Bite Beauty #018 The Lip Pencil ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark plummy brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly. The consistency was thin, clingy but not actually drying or uncomfortable to wear, and soft enough that it spread fairly easily without tugging on the lips for full-color application. This shade stayed on for six hours on its own, and it was neither drying nor hydrating over time. Bite Beauty recommends wearing this particular shade with Honeycomb; I think it would work well with Pepper (slightly cooler), Chai (brighter), Verbena (brighter), Sweet Cream (lighter, brighter), or Rhubarb (cooler) -- 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.
