Bite Beauty Cranberry High Pigment Pencil

DSCN8138

Bite Beauty is a brand that has fascinated me ever since I discovered it. Unfortunately, they are only available in the States, which is a real downer if you ask me. I should’ve known that before I started googling like a cray cray. A fellow beauty blogger named Elaine, has put a stop to my pouting and very kindly sent me one of the four lip pencils from her “Bite Beauty Set” – which is the most generous thing ever. I feel lucky and incredibly honoured to have received this – I’m forever grateful, Elaine. I can now officially say that I’m part of the Bite Beauty lip craze – I feel such a cool person now!

DSCN8158A bold lip that claims to be matte, creamy and pigmented? I’m all ears. The Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil in Cranberry, which is a limited edition shade but not exclusively to this set, it can now still be purchased in full size. The shade is beyond gorgeous: a deep luscious red. I’m pretty fussy when it comes to lip shades … I easily get bored of lipsticks and they mostly end up left forgotten in one of my many drawers. When Elaine proposed me to send me one, I was thrilled and nervous at the same time, as it’s pretty hard to judge from pictures if the shade will match you. I was pretty confident though and it couldn’t be a better match: A deep wine red, slightly berry-toned with cool undertones, a true beaut for this time of year. One that I have been wearing most days – such a head turner!

A bold matte lip looks very flattering when you have the right formula on hand. Nowadays matte lip products look million times better on the lips than they used to before. It’s far from a flat, boring matte: It looks slightly wet at first but it dries down matte. The pigmentation is as good as everyone says it to be – without added adjectives. One buttery swipe fills in your lips within seconds, without tugging or accentuating fine lines or dry patches. The lasting power is superb. It stays put really well instead of pulling The Joker look unconsciously, despite the fact that it does have some slip at first. It even lasted through a six-course meal – I feel like a proud mum. Alright, it does fade ever so slightly but honestly, nobody really notices. It feels genuinely comfortable throughout the day, I sometimes even forget I’m wearing it! So far, I’ve had a lot of compliments about the shade and its lasting power, that means something right?

My expectations were sky high and Bite Beauty managed to exceed them. I’m very impressed and I cannot wait to try out more from this not so accessible brand. I’m intrigued, I’m excited and completely infatuated. Santa, here’s what I want for Christmas …

    Beautiful lip pencil, but you really make it amazing! Perfect photo, with colours setting, faded background and everything!

      Hi Jasmine. I know it has been a while, but I still wanted to thank you for your sweet comment. Life has really been busy and I haven’t really had the time to blog – sadly. I’ll be back blogging in February – just in case you’re wondering! X

    You are BEAUTIFUL! It’s so gorgeous on you, the colour reminds me a bit of Nars Cruella which is my new favourite! x

    • http://ALICEYEH.pro/wp Alice Yeh (叶翠云)

      Hi Emma. Life has been SO busy – obviously! Thanks and I have yet to try out those infamous Nars matte velvet lip pencils! I’m scared they’ll be too dry for my lips and unfortunately there’s no Nars counter where I live. What are your thoughts? I’ll be back blogging in February – just in case you’re wondering! X

  • http://www.themistymom.com/ Shari

    Oh wow, babe, you stunning! I absolutely love this shade on you – but that’s because I like deep reds such as this AS WELL as you look good in any shade I’ve seen you in! Try BLUE next please? LOL!

    • http://ALICEYEH.pro/wp Alice Yeh (叶翠云)

      Oh thanks honey! I wish I COULD look good in every single shade … You on the other hand can rock so many more lip shades than I do! And blue – are you kidding me? I really don’t want to scare you! Hahaha. X

    Stunning, Alice! And welcome to the world of Bite lippies! There’s no going back now but surely you know that right? ;D

    • http://ALICEYEH.pro/wp Alice Yeh (叶翠云)

      If Santa could only stop by Sephora (US) and bring me some Bite lippies – I’d be the happiest kid in the world. Hahaha! X

    Oh wow, this shade is sooo stunning on you! I would DIE for a BITE lipstick! I would love a red like that, a hot pink and a nude! Love your smile, it’s so enticing!

    • http://ALICEYEH.pro/wp Alice Yeh (叶翠云)

      Hi Sharlynn, thank you so much – you’re too sweet! Haha, a good nude, red and fuchsia pink = capsule lip wardrobe! :D X

  • Elaine Licciardello

    Alice… That looks gorgeous on you…I’m glad you like it and thanks for the mention girl! xx

    • http://ALICEYEH.pro/wp Alice Yeh (叶翠云)

      Oh please, don’t thank me! That was the least I could do! X

  • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

    Cranberry is truly stunning on you! I actually asked a friend to pick up Quince for me in the States. I’ll get it next week. I can hardly wait especially after reading this review!

    • Elaine Licciardello

      Quince is beyond but it does transfer so be careful… I usually blot after applying Quince… It is gorgeous tho… so pigmented, it is insane!

      • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

        Oh Gosh it’s pretty on you! You mean it smudges? Hmm not sure I like that, but maybe I can try it with a clear lip pencil.

        • http://ALICEYEH.pro/wp Alice Yeh (叶翠云)

          Mine doesn’t smudge at all. Elaine told me to blot it but I really don’t have to. It stays put without budging …

          • Elaine Licciardello

            good for u Alice… Maybe is just Quince!! because the other 2 don’t do that…

        • Elaine Licciardello

          Well I think clear lip pencil is a good idea but u know what girl… it just magically appears everywhere AROUND my lip… like my chin which i have no idea why… I never have issues with ANY lipsticks but for some reason this one does… but I tried blotting my lips after and it stayed… the pigmentation of this pencil is craaaazy pigmented so even after blotting it still looks good and I kinda prefer the matte finish! Hope it helps… x

          • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

            Oh God now I’m scared. Very very scared :( I’ll keep you posted tho!

      • http://ALICEYEH.pro/wp Alice Yeh (叶翠云)

        Oh I couldn’t see the picture on my phone … You look amazing with Quince! *gasps*

        • Elaine Licciardello

          if ur friend is going to the states and ask her to get this shade for u… it is the best fuchsia I’ve ever seen! xx

      • http://www.themistymom.com/ Shari

        Oh wow you look gorgeous Elaine! And love the Quince shade as well!!

        • Elaine Licciardello

          Thanks Shari… I love this colour!! xx

    • http://ALICEYEH.pro/wp Alice Yeh (叶翠云)

      I was really impressed. It feels so comfortable on the lips, can’t wait to try other shades! Hope you’ll like it as well! X

            If all goes well, we’ll be heading Stateside again in May/June 2015. So, yeah, working on a wishlist. Again. :)

          • http://ALICEYEH.pro/wp Alice Yeh (叶翠云)

            There’s nothing more fun than making up wish lists. Well, apart from actually shopping the wish list. Haha! You must be so exciting! Can’t wait to go there one day … *dreams*
