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.

It appears a little deeper in real life.

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!
