Bite Beauty High Pigment Matte Lip Pencils in Grapevine and Chablis Swatches & Review (Part 2)

Welcome to Bite Beauty reviews part 2! These are the other items I hauled whilst in London (see previous post for a review of the lip tint!).  These are called the HIgh Pigment Matte Lip Pencils! There are 11 shades to choose from although Selfridges had about 7 in stock.

They say: Made with a double-dose of premium micronized pigments, this lip pencil delivers a modern matte look. This lip color delivers super antioxidant resveratrol, which fights free radicals with potent long-term antiaging benefits. Each lip pencil contains the amount of resveratrol found in five glasses of red wine.

Once again as with the lip tint, this is a nicely packaged product. The pencil itself is also simple but sleek, with a matte feel. 

I chose two shades – this is all about the ‘high pigment’ right?! So no point getting anything too nude or wishy washy! The reds were more or less sold out in Selfridges, which is good as it took away the temptation for me to buy a red which I would never wear anyway. 

I chose Chablish, a medium rosy brown shade and Grapevine, which is not grape like at all, it’s a gorgeous hot hot blue based pink!

I like this pencil – it makes it easier to apply such a bold colour without the use of a lip pencil too. It’s a wind up design so no sharpening which is good, as I have lost all my cosmetic sharpeners (they are much better for the job than standard sharpeners, as I found after breaking a lot of 24/7 Urban Decay pencils in a Paperchase one!).  

Although this is called a Matte lip pencil, I really didn’t find it matte at all, really more creamy with a slight sheen. I could even rub my lips together no problems when I wore it, so that doesn’t count as matte to me.  However it is very very pigmented and opaque, something I can have problems with on my dry lips.  But, I didn’t have any issues with these beauties.  They are also unfragranced. 

Swatches:

That was just one light swipe!

Granted, you have to be in the mood for such full on lips! 

I found these very easy to apply, no dragging, they just glided on leaving a really nice layer of colour without too much settling into lines and made my lips looks quite healthy and plump despite the opacity.

Grapevine, one layer:

Chablis was my more wearable natural choice.  It can look quite brown on me in some lights, but overall, it’s very wearable and makes the lips look quite creamy! 

One layer again.

I licked my lips and it tasted sweet, although I wouldn’t eat this product (it cost too much) it is actually food grade should you ever find yourself in a LOST situation.

Longevity…erm, well in my opinion they don’t stay as vibrant as above for more than 2 hours, but they are still quite noticeable and bright for another 2 hours after that. In terms of leaving a stain, I don’t think these do particularly, here are my lips after wearing Grapevine and having some lunch:

Verdict:
 
These pencils are fab – super pigmented, bright, vibrant, non drying, easy to apply, etc. etc. I don’t like the price – they cost £24 each which is quite steep and they’re priced at $24 on Sephora. 
 
Even so I do like these a lot, they are pretty unique and lovely. I would definitely investigate further colours or even better, ask a friend to buy it from the States! 
 
I purchased this from Selfridges (Oxford Road).
