Product Review: Bite Beauty Best Bite Remix

Hi everyone!

Before we start this review, let’s just take a moment and do a happy dance for this Bite Beauty lip set. I totally missed out on the epic holiday set Bite came out last year, but I was lucky enough to have grabbed this during the Sephora F&F sale. Now, not only have I had the chance to try out the much-hyped High Pigment Lip Pencils, I was able to do so at an AMAZING value.
This set comes in a cute red metal tin that reminds me of Altoids. It retails for $25 and includes four mini High Pigment Lip Pencils containing 0.05 oz of product each. So get this, you are essentially getting 0.2 oz of product for $25, whereas ONE of the full size Lip Pencil, which contains 0.09 oz of product, retails for $24. You pay $1 more for over doubled the product, AND gets to try out multiple shades? Where do I sign up?
It also has a decent sized mirror on the tin.
Seriously though, how cute is this?!
The four shades that are included are:
Sable (exclusive)—described as “nude” by Sephora, this color comes off as a light yellow pink. While this isn’t my favorite since it’s too light for my pale complexion and washes me out terribly, the creamy texture makes my lips look amazing.
Rhubarb-- described as “plum rose” by Sephora, this is DEFINITELY a MLBB (my lips but better) shade for me. I would describe this as a dusty rose with a strong tint of plum. Very effortless to pull off, this shade is perfect for everyday wear. One of my favorites!
Winterberry (exclusive)-- described as “festive berry red” by Sephora, it’s more berry than red to me. It has a strong cool tone and is the perfect raspberry shade. While this color is great for the colder months, I personally don’t find this shade very unique.
Pomegranate-- described as “rich red” by Sephora. MY FAVORITE! It’s a face-brightening red that’s more neutral as opposed to cool or warm. I personally think this shade is way more festive compared to Winterberry; it’d be the perfect shade to wear during the holiday season.
Arm swatches!

This is my first time trying the Bite Beauty High Pigment Lip Pencils, and I’m happy to say that the hype is real. The shades are all super pigmented (duh), and the texture…Oh the texture! It’s so dreamy!! All of the shades are creamy and buttery with decent lasting power (around 4 hours for me).  
All in all, I strongly recommend this set to people who:
  • Have been dying to try out Bite products but don’t want to commit to the high price tag  
  • Hoard makeup and can’t possibly use up a full-sized of anything
  • Want to get friends/family who are makeup lovers a great Christmas present

Thank you for stopping by my blog! Til next time, have a great day!
