Bite High Pigment Matte Pencil - Review

I was in Sephora recently where I finally broke down and bought a lovely, vampy color for my lips. I've been leaning towards a more vintage style look with my makeup and I wanted a nice bright red lipstick to complete the look. I've always been a bit scared of lipsticks... since I started doing ballet as a four year old I've always hated the taste and feel of lipstick. While I must own hundreds of dollars worth of eyeshadows, I only own one lipstick. Sad, isn't it?

I went into Sephora and asked what they had that was moisturizing. I've always had terrible luck with lip products and flakies. I've done everything I can to keep my lips exfoliated and moisturized, but it doesn't seem to make the slightest bit of difference.

The girl helping me introduced me to Bite, assuring me that their lipsticks were hydrating and bright. I swatched and tried on a few, but I ended up going with one of their High Pigment Matte Pencils instead   of one of their Creme Lipsticks mainly because of the colors available.

The pencil has a twist up bottom and is sleekly designed. The color I decided on is a black currant shade called "Bramble." I thought about going more traditional brick red, but a more berry shade is really more my style. I was so in love with the whole look after I tried the color on that I kept it on the rest of the day after leaving Sephora. It stayed a pretty firm 5 hours with no problems and minimal touch ups.

I think I may be brave and try acquiring some more lip colors and so far I'm liking Bite as a brand. It's a bit expensive, but the color payoff is nice and it stays quite well.
