Bite Beauty is a Canadian lip cosmetics company whose mission statement is ‘to create lipstick that is high performance and healthy enough to eat for women everywhere’! It’s a different concept, but one that we definitely feel we can get on board with!

We chose the High Pigment Pencil in Poppy, a gorgeous bright red. It’s a lipstick pencil, which can sometimes equal a chalky texture or sheer, greasy finish, but not this time! The formula is as beautifully creamy as a luxury brand lipstick, and it’s so high in pigment that from the first swipe the colour is true to the shade in the pencil! It’s wonderfully nourishing, but when blotted down it creates a juicy stain that you can build up to the shade you want. The scent is a little bit fruity but nothing particularly noticeable, and the fat pencil shape means you can get a really precise edge to your lips without having to use a lip liner first – perfect if you’re in a rush. The brand has also really caught our attention with their philosophy about good-for-you cosmetics; all their products are made with natural ingredients, so much so that they’re certified food grade which means that yes, technically you could actually eat them! They all contain none-to-minimal amounts of lead, which is another step in the right direction, and are certified gluten free too – perfect for anyone who suffers from a gluten allergy or intolerance.

Overall we’re as in love with the brand’s values and attitude towards healthy cosmetics as we are with this lippie! And as usual, don’t forget to enter our giveaway over on the app on our Facebook page to be in with a chance of winning it, plus a Lipcote!

Love, Lipcote x
