Bite Beauty Best Bite Set

Bite Beauty has an amazing set of four of their High Pigment Matte Pencils out for this holiday season. I picked up the Best Bite Set ($28 CDN) during Sephora's Friends & Family sale, and I've been playing around with the four shades. Bite's High Pigment Matte Pencils are incredibly pigmented and I really like the pencil format.





"This set of festive lip colors will have you looking perfect for any holiday occasion. Mini High Pigment Pencils allow you to color and hydrate your lips with ease. A retractable, jumbo pencil tip is ideal for application on the go.
This set contains:
- 4 x 0.05 oz High Pigment Matte Pencil in Quince, Rhubarb, Cranberry, Madeira" - Sephora 

Cranberry


Madeira


Quince (reviewed here


Rhubarb

Of the four shades included in this set, I would have to say that Rhubarb is my favourite, followed closely by Quince. However, all four shades are beautiful! These lipsticks are extremely pigmented, so you'll only need to go over your lips once for an opaque look. This formula is hydrating for about two hours, and then I find that I do have to apply a balm over top. This formula also transfers quite easily, so a lip liner would be a good idea to pair with these shades. This set contains a nice mix of shades, and I think that there will be a shade for everyone. These pencils are 0.05oz each, whereas a full size pencil is 0.09oz. Cranberry is a new shade to Bite's range, so it's nice to be able to try it out in this set!

Overall, I think that is a great value. The cost of the set of four is the same as the price of one full size pencil. Have you picked up the Best Bite Set? If you're a lip stick lover, and you've been wanting to try out the Bite brand, this lip set is a no brainer! This set is also packaged in a cute little tin, so it would make a great Christmas gift. What has been your favourite holiday set for this holiday season?

  2. I was really tempted by this but I really only wanted Rhubarb so it's still cheaper to just buy it individually. I get one of them (can't remember which! ha) in the Give Me Lip set from Sephora anyway :) They look fantastic though.

    1. I like buying sets to let me try out more shades at once, and with the amount of lip products I own, I hardly ever actually finish full lipsticks anyways! I think it was the Pomegranate shade that came in the Sephora set! :)

    2. turns out it's Rhubarb in the mini set :) how perfect! I love sets too and completely agree, but if 2 shades are too bold for me, and one is kinda boring, I'm best off sticking to another set. I am so tempted and lusting after the tarte lipsurgence minis...

    3. Oh Pomegranate was in the give me more lip set and Rhubarb was in the give me some lip set! I agree, a set is only worth it if you'll wear the majority of the shades. The Tarte set is also calling to me but I really don't need any more lip products lol

    4. I want the give me more lip set too haha but I restrained myself during the 20% off so definitely can't get it now. Pomegrante looks lovely as well.

      I never *need* more lip products...

    5. I know, that's how I feel about the Tarte set, I can't buy it now at full price!

    6. Haha that's true, although it is only $41 which is just over $35 which is what you need to get a Blitz bag... so that's how I'm mentally rationalizing it... Still been good so far though!

    7. That's so true lol! but I think that Sephora is going to be sending out a $20 off of a $50 purchase to all VIBs sometime soon for the holidays!

    8. Ohhhhh.... sadly not a VIB :( Maybe next year! haha. I'm just trying to save money for European makeup in a month and a half. :) Swear I'll have a whole suitcase of stuff to swatch.

    9. I think Beauty Insiders get $15 off $50! Oh nice! Where are you going in Europe? :)

    10. Oh no, don't tell me that! haha. I am going to Lisbon and London for about 10 days.

    11. Oh I'm so jealous! There are so many amazing brands that you'll need to stock up on! (Collection 2000 concealer instantly comes to mind!)

    12. yessss ! it was in my October favourites actually :) need to buy lots, and Barry M nail polish and MUA and Sleek and Soap and Glory... Basically half of Boots/Superdrug :)

      Delete
    13. I wish those brands were easier to find in Canada! I would love to add a few more Sleek blushes to my collection :)

      Delete
    14. I think Sleek has quite reasonable shipping online? If not, send me an email at writingwhimsy@gmail.com and let me know, I wouldn't mind grabbing a couple for you while I'm there and mailing them off when I get back :)

    15. I'll have to check out their website & shipping info. Thank you so much for the offer, that's so sweet of you! :)

      Delete
    16. Let me know! I know they don't ship everything internationally though, so that may be an issue, but it's totally not a problem if it'll help you get your hands on some elusive international makeup goodies :)

      Delete
    17. I'll definitely let you know! :)
