I was given a mini by a friend. I had been really lusting after the shade Tannin. It's described a beautiful deep burgundy red. I think it would be a shade of red that anyone can pull off. I loved the color so much I actually wore it to my sister's wedding and couple of my sisters borrowed it on the day since they liked the shade of red. Now despite this being labeled as a pencil it's really more of a crayon in that more chubby than a pencil and softer too. I find the formula non-drying but not super moisturizing like a really creamy lipstick. That being said I didn't need a lip balm when or end the day with really dry lips when I wore it all day sans a lip balm. It isn't transfer proof unfortunately. I had to touch it up multiple times on the day of my sister's wedding because it kept coming off when I was snacking on the delicious, greasy nibbles and sipped on drinks. That being said I still had plenty of color on my lips I just was very about having the perfect red lip in the family wedding pics. It goes the lips smoothly and really pigmented. Bite Beauty formulates it products with natural ingredients which I love. Price wise it's a little more expensive than a drugstore lippy but I think considering the quality the price is fair.

Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil Review
Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil Make a bold statement with the Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil. Featuring no parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances or petrochemicals and a fusion of natural ingredients, your lips will shine healthily in no time. The Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil adds a bright pop of colour to your smile and completes the look of any outfit.
Tips: Even if though this is a crayon technically, after a few uses the sharp tip is rounded out so you if you choose a bright or dark color and want that perfect red or bright pink lip you will have an easier time if you use a lip brush.
This is probably up there in my top 3 fav lip products that I own (and I own far too many!). Bite seem like a great company and so far I haven't been disappointed in their products.
The packaging is simple but definitely not cheap or tacky feeling, a matte charcoal grey colour that has that same feel that NARS packaging has. Only downside to this is that it does seem to show fingerprints easier than say MAC lippy packaging. I also like how the colour of the lipstick is on the bottom of the pencil so you don't have to open them all to find out which is which!
The shade range isn't huge but its expanding and includes most colours a girl could need/want; vibrant pinks and reds, subtle nudes and sultry darker berries.
The formula of this product is really what got me. It is amazingly smooth and creamy and unlike some other products I own, doesn't seek out those fine lines and cracks in your lips and settle into them which is a bonus for a girl like me who constantly struggles with cracked lips! The formula is lovely and opaque and lasts a good while considering how creamy it is.
I love the pencil tip, it makes application for me so easy and I can confidently apply darker colours without the need for a lip liner.
The smell isn't its selling point, to me they smell a little like crayons or something? Its not nasty and doesn't last on the lips so for me its not a deal breaker. They aim for natural products so I guess candy floss or lollipop scent doesn't come under that category!
Overall I think these are beautiful products that are highly underrated and well worth the moderate price tag, if you're a lip junkie - you need Bite Beauty in your life!!
