I received the Bite Lip Pencil Voxbox from Influenster.
Ilove when my voxboxes are makeup because I love discovering new makeup and playing with new products.
I was eager to try this voxbox because it was my first time hearing and using the brand, Bite Beauty. Influenster had mentioned that Bite beauty took three years to make this lip pencil and that I was going to be one of the first to try this product. I was ecstatic about trying it out!
I received two lip pencils with matching mini lipsticks and a sharpener. The two lip pencils I received are in the colors 044 and 020. The mini lipsticks I received are the Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Honeycomb and Whiskey. All of the photos are of me wearing the color Whiskey.
Applying the lip liner was easy. It was soft and didn’t hurt my skin nor irritated it. It was smooth and easy to apply the lip liner. It was very creamy. If you messed up, it was easy to fix and remove. It didn’t dry down completely right away. So if you mess up, not a problem, because you can easily wash it off or fix it up!
The lipstick itself – I had to apply the lipstick a couple times to make the color bold. I think I applied the lipstick 5 times on an area because it was so hard to get the color to come out. It wasn’t easy to apply the lipstick or maybe I just wasn’t pressing hard enough on the lipstick to apply it. I really liked the lip liner because it was soft, creamy and so easy to use. The lipstick took a lot longer to get the color to come out.
I read a lot of reviews about this product that it transfers, so I purposely did not eat. I had a drink from a straw and it automatically transferred A LOT.
I purposely did not eat because I’m not one to constantly check the mirror to see my makeup. It’s a hassle. This lipstick transfers a lot, even if you’re sipping out of a straw. I had my phone at all times to double check if my lipstick smeared and it’s just annoying. I don’t want to constantly check if my lipstick is on my chin – not everybody can easily pull up a mirror to check their makeup and I don’t want to worry about checking my makeup every 5 minutes. All I did was drink out of a straw the entire day and I kept checking my makeup every 15 minutes. If you don’t like to check your makeup constantly throughout the day, then this lipstick is not for you.
The lipstick and lip liner aren’t drying at all. They’re soft and creamy. They remind me of Colourpop’s satin liquid lipsticks and NYX’s suede liquid lipsticks because they’re all soft, moisturizing and transfer like crazy.
Because I didn’t eat, the lipstick somewhat lasted me throughout my shift 8-3. I did not retouch it once and all I did was constantly drink out of straw. It DID look like I needed to retouch because the color started to fade though. You can see that the color faded in the middle center of my lips.
I love these colors and I think the lipstick is great! I think it’s perfect for a night out where you are NOT eating or drink because the color does stay on, it’s just the transferring that’s annoying. If you’re going out to the movies or to watch a play or even a concert, this lipstick will be good for you, just as long as you’re not eating or drinking. It will last through the night and you don’t have to worry about retouching. It’s soft, creamy and keeps my lips from getting dry.
Color wear – I’d say it lasts a couple hours but if you drink and eat, you’re going to have to retouch. There’s no denying or avoiding – you WILL have to retouch if you plan on eating and drinking. And have napkins or tissues with you to clean up because the lipstick will get over everything. Keep a mirror in hand because it might smear on your chin or your upper lip. If you don’t eat or drink, the color lasts for a couple hours. I’d say 3-4 at best and then you would have to retouch for the best color.
These pictures were taken RIGHT AFTER I applied the lipstick and lip liner! I do like this lipstick and plan on wearing but for rare occasions or errands where I’ll be out for a bit but not to eat or drink. I don’t think it’s worth the money to be honest. You can get colourpop satin liquid lipsticks or NYX’s suede cream liquid lipsticks and they all feel the same, last the same, and have the same problems (transferring).
The lip pencil was great! It lasted on my lips the entire day and was creamy. But it does transfer too. I think if you use this lip pencil with a matte liquid lipstick, you’ll be fine but if you use a satin liquid lipstick or an actual lipstick, it will transfer.
I will continue to use these products and I will purchase the lip pencils because I genuinely do like them, but I will not purchase the actual lipsticks. Too much of a hassle to constantly check the mirror to see if it smeared or if it transferred. If you don’t mind retouching and constantly checking your makeup, then this lipstick is great for you!
These pictures were taken around 5:00PM AFTER I drank from a water bottle and slurped some noodles from a bowl!
In general, I give this voxbox a 7/10. I genuinely love the colors and I absolutely love the lip pencil. The lipsticks are great for a night out or for an event, but I don’t like how it transfers so much. The colors are beautiful and I love wearing them. The color wear is good for 3-4 hours before retouching. In general, I will continue to use these products. They’re soft, creamy and moisturizing.
