I’ve been obsessed with lip liners lately; I’ve purchased a bunch over the last month or so and was beyond excited when Influenster sent me these two lip liners and mini lipsticks from bite beauty complimentary to try out and review!
I prefer pencil lip liners over mechanical ones; I find they are creamier – not sure if that is because the product is exposed rather than covered like pencil liners. Anyways, creaminess is a must because I like to fill in my lips with the liner and sometimes I won’t bother with lipstick and just wear the liner on it’s own. I really like the matte look it gives and the longevity that I get is great!
These lip liners are super creamy and can definitely be worn on its own – they glide on; they don’t drag at all. They are super pigmented so there is no need to layer. The longevity is fairly decent as well; they aren’t transfer-proof so they will wear off when eating but they last fairly well.
Both of these shades (swatched below) are gorgeous – the nude is very flattering on me since I have very fair skin; it doesn’t wash me out because of the pink/slightly peach undertone. The dark shade is super vampy and I never shy away from a bold lip – I would wear this to death during the autumn/winter months. I like how you can just put on some mascara and a bold lip color makes it look like you spent time doing your makeup.
Top to bottom: Bite Lip Pencil in #020, Bite Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Honeycomb, Bite Lip Pencil in #044 and lastly on the bottom the Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Whiskey.
I tried the mini matching lipsticks (Amuse Bouche) with the liners and I really like how pigmented they are. Their both super creamy and have a semi matte formula. Similar to the lip liners, these aren’t transfer proof and will wipe away but they last for a decent time. The lipsticks have a pleasant scent to them – it’s not over-powering but if you are sensitive to that; it may not be your cup of tea.
Overall, I really enjoyed the formula and shade of both the lip liners and the lipsticks; I would strongly recommend both.
