How are you doing today? I am here to share a high pigment pencil from Bite Beauty, which is another beautiful gift from IMBB. Thank you Sanjeev Sir, Rati, and Team IMBB for being so considerate and friendly with us. I have already confessed that I am giving a break to my love for reds and loving lighter shades. This pigment pencil is a beautiful coral pink shade which is perfect for this hot weather. Please read on further to know more about Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil in Corvina.
$24 for 0.09 Oz (2.52 g), exclusive of taxes and shipping.
A long-lasting, matte lip color. Made with a double-dose of premium micronized pigments, this lip pencil delivers a modern matte look. This lip color delivers super antioxidant resveratrol, which fights free radicals with potent long-term anti-aging benefits. Each lip pencil contains the amount of resveratrol found in five glasses of red wine.
This gorgeous shade comes in a retractable pencil packaging with a safety cap. It does not have any significant fragrance apart from a bland taste, which is just okay. Overall, quite user friendly, mess-free and travel-friendly packaging.
My Experience with Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil – Corvina:
I already own their Bite Beauty Best Bite set which compelled me to try this coral pink beauty next and I am so glad that I dared to get it. Corvina seems a super bright coral pink shade unlike my usual bright shades which complements my skin very well. It does not tone down my skin tone, in fact, I can say it enhances my skin tone, looks great on my pale skin. I usually pair this shade with my multicolor striped outfits. However, I must confess that initially when I saw this shade, I was slightly worried as to how to pull it off. It was so not my kind of a shade, but eventually, I started loving it and confidently wear it outside quite often.
The texture of the pencil is smooth as it effortlessly glides on my lips without feathering or settling into the fine lines. I also love the fact that although it is a semi-matte shade, still it delivers a slightly glossy sheen to my lips keeping them soft and supple for a while. Yes gals, it does not dry out my lips nor does it accentuate my lip crevices or dryness despite being a matte pencil, which is impressive. However, I believe it might be tricky on dry lips after a few hours once the glossy sheen gives way to a semi-matte stain. It is intensely pigmented like other shades from this range and gives me opaque color pay off in just one swipe without looking loud.
I swipe it twice for glossy and even finish and it smartly conceals all my flaws and I am sure it will work great on pigmented lips. It does not look cakey even if we swipe it more than twice, though that won’t be needed because it’s a highly pigmented shade. I never use lip balm beneath this lip pencil, it is soft and gentle on my lips and keeps them smooth for long hours. No wonder we love matte crayons over creamy-glossy lip pencils for precise and defined lips, isn’t it?
It has an amazing staying power of 8-10 hours average. There are times when it has stayed for as long as 12 hours on my lips and I had to wipe it off at the end of the day. It remains on the lips even after several water/tea breaks and/or light snacks and might fade a bit after one heavy meal.
Removing it off the lips is not a tough task, I simply wipe it off with cotton and argan oil. Damp cotton also works great. This is my next favorite shade from Bite Beauty after the shade “Quince.” Now, the twist is that like all pigment pencils, it transfers heavily on cups and cutlery, which might be bothering at times, especially when you are guest to someone who hates stains on their stuff, you know what I mean 😛 Well, it has happened to me once (to my embarrassment) and I take extra care to avoid such situations. Apart from stain, there is nothing I need to take care of, I just love this shade and wear it more often. I recommend this shade to fair/light/medium skin tones.
Let’s sum up pros and cons:
Pros of Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil – Corvina:
- Retractable, highly pigmented, bright coral-pink pencil infused with the goodness of resveratrol anti-oxidants to fight harmful free radicals.
- It is a highly pigmented lip shade despite being a lighter shade, has no shimmer.
- Semi-matte pencil, slathers like cream on lips without drying out the lips.
- Does not feather.
- Gives a semi-matte yet glossy creamy sheen initially which becomes a semi-matte yet powdery stain after 2-3 hours.
- As long as it stays on my lips, I get well moisturized, soft lips.
- Does not irritate or dry out my lips.
- Gives full coverage with intense color payoff in just 1-2 swipes which makes it ideal for pigmented lips as well.
- Stays stiff and does not melt at room temperature, even in summers, unlike other deeper shades.
- Stays on the lips for a good 8-10 hours.
- Formulated without parabens, phthalates and sulfates.
- Travel-friendly packaging at an affordable price.
Cons of Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil – Corvina:
- It’s a tricky shade.
- It does transfers heavily.
Well, I love this shade and would always love to get it again and again. However, I wish Bite Beauty comes up with more economical options like the Best Bite set where we get to try 4 different shades at the price of one. Moreover, I am the one who is also intrigued by new launches and new stuff and hence I would love to splurge in best bite sets rather than getting one single piece 😛 Shades like “Corvina” and “Quince” are winners for their pigmentation, texture, finish, staying power, and their retractable, mess-free packaging and also the paraben, sulfate and phthalate-free formulation.
I would wholeheartedly give it 4.8/5!
