BITE Beauty Spring 2012 - High Pigment Pencils in Rhubarb and Chablis

BITE Beauty has added a few new shades to their range of High Pigment Pencils($24) for spring. I have here Chablis, a bright coral pink and Rhubarb, a plummy rose with hints of mauve. The pencils have a slight sheen to them although they are said to be matte. Rhubarb is an amazing color, so perfect for medium-dark skin tones and my favourite of the two.

L-R : Chablis, Rhubarb




The high pigment pencils are packaged in a matte finish case, just like other Bite products. The pencils come in a twist up form, which I like since there's no product wastage. They have a slight smell which I'm not too fond of but it fades pretty fast. The texture is smooth and glides on coating lips with rich pigment. When my lips are not in a good condition, I apply a lip balm underneath. If you don't have very dry lips, you can very well get away without one. Both Chablis and Rhubarb are very bright, vivid colors that last a good 4 hours on my lips. They leave behind a beautiful stain without drying out lips. The intensity is buildable and the product itself doesn't feel waxy or heavy at all. When I want to tone down the color a bit, I dab on a little and go over with a gloss. The pointy tip also helps define lips without having to use a lip liner.

If you have extremely dry lips, keep in mind that they do have a tendency to enhance flaky lips so, be sure to add a layer of lip balm underneath. Like most bright lip colors, Chablis and Rhubarb need touch ups in between to keep them looking vibrant. Although very creamy for a matte lip color, they still don't bleed or transfer. If you like richly pigmented lip products with a semi-matte finish and a light-weight feel, these are well worth a try!
