Bite Beauty’s holiday sets are out *cue choirs of angels* and I have the Bite Beauty Remix lippies to share with you today. This is such a great gift for yourself or others. In fact, buy it with intentions of giving it to someone else, and I DARE you to actually give it to them and not keep it for yourself. Four high pigment pencils come housed in an adorable tin. Aside from the cardboard covering, none of the packaging or pencils are festive at all, so it won’t pain you to use these year round. There are no snowflakes or candy cane stripes on anything like so many of the holiday kits have.
I actually love the little tins these come in. If I want to travel for the weekend and have a few lipstick choices, I will take all four of the shades in the tin with me and they’re protected from opening up in my makeup bag. I will also repurpose them and use the tin to store earring backs in my jewelry armoire, or I’ll wrap a couple pieces of jewelry in kleenex and put them in the tin to store them as I travel to keep them safe.
This kit contains four high pigment pencils in the shades:
Pomegranate: Rich red
Rhubarb: Plum rose
Winterberry: Festive raspberry red
Of the four shades, Pomegranate and Rhubarb are from the permanent line, while Sable and Winterberry seem to be limited edition. I have owned at least a couple of these colors before. When I went digging through my stash, I found Rhubarb which was actually from last year’s set and I also found a mini Pomegranate, but I’m not sure when/which kit I got it from. If you have bought sets that came in a tin before from Bite, you may want to check to make sure you don’t have these.
Bite Beauty describes these as highly-pigmented, moisture-rich pencils featuring a convenient twist-up jumbo tip. Made with a double-dose of premium micronized pigments, the High Pigment Pencil delivers a modern, saturated look with bold, long-lasting color. Boasting super-antioxidant Resveratrol each use fights free radicals with potent long-term anti-aging benefits. Bite products are free of parabens, polybutenes, sulfates and petroleum byproducts. The lips-only collection is certified gluten-free and made with food-grade ingredients, without sacrificing pigmentation or performance.
I found these pencils to be highly pigmented, creamy and long lasting. The color did not migrate, and my lips were left feeling slightly more hydrated than before I wore them. Winterberry and Pomegranate left a slight stain behind, and all shades wore for at least 5-6 hours. The tin retails for $25, which makes each pencil $6.25. It’s a steal of a deal!
I actually think this is the perfect holiday or weekend with family lip set. I would wear Sable to brunch, Winterberry to Christmas church, Rhubarb shopping, and Pomegranate on New Year’s Eve. All are gorgeous!
You can pick these up at Sephora.com, Sephora in store, and Sephora inside JC Penney. They are currently sold out online, but if I see that change, I’ll update this post.
