I’m very excited to show you guys the latest release from Bite Beauty, aka a super cool Canadian brand that specializes in lip products.

If you’ve never heard about Bite Beauty I’ll give you a little back story. Bite Beauty is a Canadian company that came to be after the founder was inspired by chemistry and the want to void her cosmetics of harmful chemicals. Their slogan is “lip colour that’s good enough to eat” because their products are 100% natural and you could technically eat them (note the name Bite). They’re known for having crazy pigmentation and comfortable wear, none of that cracked lip liquid lipstick junk here.

Now onto the newness. They just launched The Lip Pencil, which comes in 22 colours and retails for $20 for 0.05 oz at Sephora. To put this in perspective the Huda beauty lip pencils are $25 for 0.042 oz, Urban Decay and Makeup Forever are both $24 for 0.04 oz. I tried to find some drugstore option but literally no drugstore site had ounces on it so it wouldn’t really add to it. Looking in the realm of drugstore lip pencils these guys are on the less expensive side.

According to Sephora’s website these are described as “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.” They are made without parabens, sulfates, and phalates as well as petrochemicals.

To use it says to prep lips with their Line and Define Primer, a clear balm like primer, then line and fill in lips with the pencil. You can finish the look with a pairing colour in the Amuse Bouche Lipstick (which is maybe my favourite lipstick formula ever).

I’ll stop rambling now and start with the review. I’m going to link my video on it here so if you’re less of a reader feel free to check that out instead.

To give you a breakdown I moisturized with the Bite Agave Lip Balm and then used the MUFE lip perfertor to prime the lips before using the pencils.

The overall performance of the pencils was fantastic. The went on smooth an creamy with absolutely no tug on the lips which I loved. My only issue with the application is that the tip on both colours broke off when I used them which is a shame. I topped them with the matching Amuse Bouche colours and proceeded to wear it to work the entire day. I applied it around 2:00 and it didn’t start to break down or flake until around 7:00 with no touch ups with is pretty impressive to me.

To wrap it up I’d give these guys a 9/10 only docking marks for the breaking on the initial application. I’m looking forward to more shades coming out to match all the fun colours Bite has in the Amuse Bouche line.
