Bite Beauty #042 The Lip PencilBite Beauty #042 The Lip Pencil ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a dark, plummy red with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that went on fairly evenly. The texture seemed to have a little more creaminess to it than other shades, which made it more comfortable to use when applying color all-over the lips. This shade lasted for six and a half hours and was non-drying. Bite Beauty recommends wearing this particular shade with Nori, Verbena, or Chai; I think it would work well with Nori (warmer), Liquorice (darker), or Mistletoe (darker) -- 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.
