Bite Beauty #044 The Lip PencilBite Beauty #044 The Lip Pencil ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a subdued, brownish burgundy with subtle, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage that could have applied a bit more evenly on its own. I was able to smooth and even out the coverage by pressing my lips together, though, so it did not require too much finagling. The texture was thin, clingy, but it was, surprisingly, non-drying over the six hours it lasted for. Bite Beauty recommends wearing this particular shade with Whiskey or Liquorice; I think it would work well with Nori (warmer), Liquorice (slightly darker), or Mistletoe (redder) -- 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.
