A glimpse at the lips: Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil in Velvet & Fruit Scrub in Whipped Cherry

In the course of a day I talk to a lot of people and sometimes the conversation can shift from business to "so, where are you from , um, Canada or the States?"  I chuckle and ask in return "where do you think I'm from?" Truth be told I'm never offended when they guess Canada, my accent is soft and hard to pin down.  Plus, Canada was my neighbour to the North until I moved to Australia.  And, I really can't knock Canada - I have a lot of extended relatives who live in the Great White North. Bite Beauty comes from Canada, eh, and their main focus is the lips and lips alone. "Each lipstick contains the Resveratrol equivalent of five glasses of red wine." I love wine, but don't want to drink it every day, the calories and sugar content of each glass of wine is so startling you might reconsider asking for a refill. In the meantime, our lips can benefit from the ingredients used in Bite Beauty.

Bite's Whipped Cherry Fruit Scrub smells and tastes of cherries, yum!  While they were at it, they threw in Rice Bran (the small, round scrubbers) for exfoliation and a bunch of other "food grade" ingredients which contain exfoliating and moisturising properties.  Did I mention it's safe enough to eat?  Because it is - although, I would advise against scooping it out in one fell swoop and munching on it.

The creamy base helps to coat your lips and spread around the scrubbers.  I applied a pea-sized amount onto my lips and let them do the rest of the work by putting them together and moved them in a back and forth motion in order to move the scrub around.  I wiped the excess off with a dampened cotton round and was left with soft and supple lips which were ready for a healthy coat of Bite's High Pigment Pencil in Velvet.

The High Pigment range features 14 matte shades which wind up too, it's nice not having to worry about purchasing a special-sized sharpener.  While the swatch of Velvet looks a tad glossy, once it dried I was left with a creamy pink hue which lasted for four hours.  There's little to no smell or taste - for the girls who are sensitive to either one, I think you'd appreciate this precious baby.

Having read very little about Bite Beauty before adding Velvet to my collection, I can now comfortably say NARS' Velvet Matte Lip Pencils should be shaking in their boots.
