Thanks to Influenster, I got to try out BITE Beauty’s new The Lip Pencil and coordinating Amuse Bouche lip colors, Honeycomb and Whiskey. You know from my previous posts that I’m a huge fan of BITE and love most everything they create. Is The Lip Pencil another hit? Read on to find out.
I was happy to see that The Lip Pencils are in wood casing, as I prefer that to plastic. They have the same grippy rubber-feeling material that is signature to BITE. They are firm enough to create crisp lines but soft enough to glide on. They are easy to sharpen and don’t crumble and self-destruct like some. They don’t seem to be particularly long-wearing or waterproof, but overall, I really like working with them.
Here is the Honeycomb Lip Pencil and Amuse Bouche Lipstick in the same shade. This is a peachy-nude and on me and with my yellow undertone, it really isn’t that flattering. It’s a little too nude for me and looks more brown than I’d prefer. BITE describes the shade as “brown based nude with taupe” and I find that to be very accurate.
The Amuse Bouche Lipstick formula is very impressive. For being a creamy finish, it still wears a longer-than-average time. I looove the scent of it. It contains fresh pressed grapefruit, lemon, lime, tangelo, mint and mandarin extracts It contains 12 different food safe oils plus organic butters.
This is the Lip Pencil and Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Whiskey. I love this vampy shade that reminds me of semi-sweet chocolate. On deep skin tones, this would be a beautiful nude lip. It’s more in the brown family than red or purple.

If you’re intimidated by bold shades, Whiskey isn’t for the faint of heart. However, I’ve used The Lip Pencil to create a pretty stain effect, blending it onto lips with my finger.
