This past weekend I was in a local outdoor shopping area in Emeryville called Bay Street. They have a Sephora there and who am I to just walk by and not venture in?
There wasn’t anything I really needed per se, but I came across Bite Beauty and after swatching some of their products on my hand, I decided they were a brand that needed further investigation.
Bite Beauty is sold exclusively at Sephora and they are a Canadian company. They focus on the lips and have quite a few different lip products available. But the coolest part? The products they use are Natural Food Grade and cruelty free.
I decided to pick up one of the Luminous Creme Lipsticks (they have 21 shades) and one of the High Pigment Pencils (there are 11 shades).
Luminous Creme Lipstick in Cava
I ADORE Cava! The color is just perfection on a stick to me. It’s a somewhat sheer but build-able pink nude shade with nice shine. And the formula is excellent also. Very moisturizing and feels very comfortable on the lips. No scent or taste. I love it.

High Pigment Pencil in Velvet
The High Pigment Pencils are chubby and unlike most lip pencils, these twist up! You don’t sharpen them. I love that idea, it makes it much easier and cleaner overall.
And here is another tidbit of info in case you are interested. Each pencil comes with the same amount of resveratrol as found in 5 glasses of wine! I had to Google what that actually was and it’s a plant derived antioxidant. 🙂
Velvet is a bright rose pink shade. It’s the kind of pink I am always drawn to and can never have too many of. This pencil applies so easily, gliding over the lips like butter. Super moisturizing and comfy. No scent or taste. Fabulous stuff!

Overall: I am kind of hooked and definitely want to check out some other shades and products. The one caveat is this isn’t an inexpensive line by any means. I kind of shuddered at the price, but I wound up loving both these shades luckily!
Availability: Sephora only.
Pricing: Lipsticks are $24.00 for 0.13 oz, and Pencils are $24.00 for 0.09 oz.
Have you tried anything from Bite Beauty? What do you think about these shades?
