Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencils Review and Swatches

13 comments

Since their products were released in Sephora Bite Beauty has been a brand that has piqued my interest, so I was really excited when I received a set of the High Pigment Pencils as a Christmas gift. When I read on the package that all of Bite's products contain food grade ingredients, I became even more excited to try these out!


Some of the ingredients are organic!



The set I received came in a metal tin with a mirror inside that is very convenient for carrying the pencils in your handbag, or you could use it to store something else. The set comes with four lip pencil lipsticks that are in a retractable pencil format. The bottom of each pencil has a swatch of the color for easy identification. The lids of these pencils don't seem very secure to me. They don't snap closed, so it may be easy to not put the lid back on tightly. I have had these kinds of lids and caps come off of pencil products in my handbag before, and they make a mess. Just know if you carry these in your purse to put them in a makeup bag or a separate compartment rather than having just having it loose.


Madeira, Cranberry, Rhubarb, Quince
The application is wonderful! They glide on easily and are creamy. I really enjoy having the precision of a pencil without the dryness. As the name suggests, the pencils are very pigmented, so you do not have to work to build up the color. They feel very light on the lips and look like they should feel heavier because they are so pigmented.

Madeira
Madeira is a light pink nude color that is flattering on the lips. I don't always enjoy wearing nudes because they can make my lips disappear. This color is light without making you look sick. I don't have pigmented lips, so this color looks very natural with my skin tone. I do think that this color would work well on someone with pigmented lips wanting to go for a nude lip look because it is so pigmented. 

Cranberry (Limited Edition)
Cranberry is a bold true red color. Although this is limited edition, Cranberry is not out of stock at Sephora. As you can probably guess from previous posts, I love this color!

Rhubarb
Rhubarb is described as a plum rose. The last time I wore this, it looked a little brown. This is a great natural color for darker skin tones and for those that dislike nudes.

Quince
Quince is described as a rose berry color. It is very vibrant, and I would almost call this a fuchsia. I love this color, and it is quickly becoming my favorite shade to wear! Pinks and berry colors really perk up a light complexion. 

The High Pigment Pencils are very long lasting, and they do not feel drying on your lips like typical long wearing lip products. When I wear these, they do not transfer to my water glass, but they will transfer to a cup of hot tea. If the lip color wears a little it leaves an even stain on your lips, and it won't get patchy. The finish is described by Bite Beauty as a "modern matte look." I would not consider the finish matte, as all of these colors have a bit of depth and life to them. However, the finish is not overly glossy or shiny. Overall, I am very impressed with these pencils and highly recommend them. I cannot wait to try more products from Bite Beauty!

Have you tried anything from this brand? What did you think?

    1. I know what you mean about having a long list of reviews! I will probably be reviewing all of my Christmas makeup goodies into next year! There isn't a shade in this set that isn't flattering. Bite did such a good job putting this together. Thank you for stopping by! xoxo

  2. I love the Cranberry and Quince on you! I personally am trying to find a "nude" color that works for me. I don't have exceptionally pigmented lips, but am rather olive complected, so nudes tend to wash me out.

    You look absolutely gorgeous girl! <3

    1. Thank you Karen! Those two are my favorites right now. Good luck finding a nude. That's a tricky shade because if it isn't just right it can dull your complexion.

  3. These pens look gorgeous! The packaging is really nice. I can't pick one I like the most! That's the trouble with these products, I'm not satisfied with just one colour, I need all!

    2. Thank you Yasmeen! If this were not a set it would be so hard to decide on a color. They are so pigmented that what you see in the tube is what ends up on your lips! Thank you so much for reading!

  4. I haven't tried these before, but they look awesome! I have to look into this. I use the super saturated lip colors by urban decay and they're extremely pigmented as well. thanks for sharing!

    1. Thank you Liz! Judging by this set alone, I really think that Bite Beauty puts a lot of thought into every aspect of their products. It's definitely worth looking into.
