Bite Beauty #048 The Lip PencilBite Beauty #048 The Lip Pencil ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a blackened burgundy with neutral-to-warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had good pigmentation, though it wasn't quite opaque, that might not work well for just lining the edges of the lips as it appeared lighter (redder) than it did when layered. The pencil was slightly creamy but not truly emollient, and it did not drag on the lips. This shade wore well for almost eight hours with minimal fading, though it felt drying after six hours of wear.
I think it would work best with Amuse Bouche shades: Berry Rouge (purpler), Black Truffle (darker, cooler) see comparison swatches.
FURTHER READING: Formula Overview, which is a detailed review of the range as a whole.
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.
