Lip Crayons are a great way to line, shape, define and accentuate your pout in one easy step because the slender point makes it easy to manoeuvre around the lip contour and neatly fill in the corners. Bite Beauty has a gorgeous collection of vivacious shades to compliment all skin tones and enhance your makeup. I love the retractable packaging – no sharpening = less product waste.
The color spectrum includes everything from subtle nudes, vibrant reds, sultry wines, trendy plums and even deep blackberry. I would classify the finish as semi-matte, the pigment is velvety and moist with a hint of scintillating shine to keep skin plush and hydrated. Instead of drying down completely, the crayons retain some creaminess which makes the color slightly more susceptible to transfer but much more comfortable on the lips. I still get a few hours of fade-proof wear before needing a touch-up and the supple shades appear smooth and polished. The pigmentation is buildable so you can adjust the saturation to create the perfect level of intensity.
When the tip starts to dull simply pop out the sharpener hidden in the colored end. Instead of shaving down the crayon it reshapes it so you always have a sharp point for superior precision. Licorice is my favorite shade in this bunch – it drenches lips in a dark berry stain that is suitable for all occasions.
TIP: To avoid breaking the tip don't wind the crayon down too much.
Molases is a great neutral for medium to deep skin tones and Sugarcane (the lighter nude) works well on fair to medium complexions. Black Truffle is a bit unconventional but dark lips are trendy for a night out and looks great with minimal eye makeup or sharp winged liner. The black is mixed with a hint of purple to make the color more wearable.
I didn't swatch the lightest nude since it doesn't really suit my skin tone and I might give it to a friend but I love the vividness and quality of the formula.
The Lip Crayons retail for $28.00 each and Bite Beauty is available exclusively at Sephora
