Summer peach chronicles continue…..
A brand that has been picking up steam here in the US is another Canadian- based company that creates mostly natural lip products. Bite Beauty is found in Sephora and they just opened up a pop-up shop in Soho, where you can get a custom made lip product!
I think that Bite made its first appearance at The Makeup Show NYC this year. I was walking by and I was attracted to the boldly pigmented lip colours. I picked up their High Pigment Pencil with Resveratrol in Zinfandel.
Resveratrol has been a hot ingredient in cosmetics for a few years now. It is found in the skins of the red grape and is touted for it high anti-oxidant properties. This lip pencil also is made from 97% natural ingredients.
The High Pigment Matte Pencil (HPP) comes in matte grey plastic packaging with twist-up function to advance the product inside so there is no need to sharpen.
Very practical! Zinfandel is a rich reddish, deep peach/coral colour, without shimmer and has a glossy sheen.
Very pretty and a little bold! HPP is almost opaque but not quite like a lipstick but certainly more than a lipgloss. It reminds me of those Satin Lip Pencils from NARS. It applied smoothly on the lips, was moisturizing and over a period of time, the sheen wore off and left a stain on the lips, which gave the lip colour longetivity. It is actually advertised as a matte colour, but it never really goes fully matte on me. I got about 6-7 hours of wear before it completely wore off. That works! I like to pair this with MAC Chestnut lip liner (a chocolate liner). Again another universal colour that work on all skintones. It’s a bold contrasting shade for medium-dark to dark skintones and looks amazing! Quite a hot shade for this hot weather! I keep the rest of my makeup fairly simple and bronzey with this bold colour.
These pencils cost about US$24 and are available from Sephora stores, the Sephora website and bitebeauty.com. I need to check out the other colours that they have!
Overall Grade: A
If you happen to pass by a Sephora on this blistering weekend, check this colour out!
