How are you doing today? I am delighted to talk about my Thanksgiving gift from my sister. Bite Beauty brand came up with the Best Bite set last year, which I own courtesy IMBB and this time they have launched Best Bite Remix Set with 2 limited editions and 2 permanent high pigment pencils in one cute X-Mas theme set. I will talk about their permanent collection Rhubarb and Pomegranate which are included in this latest best bite remix set apart from limited edition: Winter berry and Sable. Rhubarb is already covered on IMBB so, let’s read further about Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil in Pomegranate.
$24 for 0.09 Oz, full size pencil, I received one 0.05 Oz pencil in set of 4 lip pencils for $25 which is quite a steal (though it’s a gift for me).
This highly pigmented lip product comes in a retractable pencil packaging with no mess of sharpening and without the need to use a lip liner beneath the lip pencil. It does have a faint sweet smell. It is a perfect user-friendly and travel-friendly product.
My Experience with Bite Beauty Pomegranate High Pigment Pencil:
I love Bite Beauty lip products for their smart choice of incorporating food grade colors and ingredients in the formulation without parabens, phthalates and sulfates in their formula. The shade “Pomegranate” is a bright strawberry festive red to me with no shimmer. It gives a nice glossy semi-matte finishing to my lips in just two swipes. Needless to say, it is intensely pigmented and conceals about almost 70% lip pigmentation in a single swipe while it gives full coverage in two swipes.
The shade does not look loud or gothic, in fact, it screams “jingle bells” – just perfect for my Christmas evening. I also love the fact that this neutral undertone red looks more like cool red on my pale skin and adds glam and glow to my face. I am sure it will compliment fair/pale/medium skin tones irrespective of undertones. The shade is a must-have for winters; I am totally head-over-heels with this pomegranate red.
Talking about the texture, it is extremely soft and adheres on my lips like second skin. I can see that it effortlessly covers all my lip flaws and gives such glossy deep color payoff which stays put for good 6+ hours irrespective of tea/water breaks and/or light meals. However, it does fade a bit after one heavy meal, but is still manageable. It will certainly work wonders on beauties with pigmented lips as well. I can’t tell you how much I love the texture, color pay off and staying power of this lip product. It does not bleed nor feather around the lips even though its so creamy, glossy and intensely pigmented. It is a semi-matte creamy crayon yet it gives me hydrated lips and I never use a lip balm beneath these pencils. I don’t feel the need to use a lip balm even after removing it off my lips, impressive, isn’t it? However, I always feel it is good to scrub our lips prior to using any lip product, as it may not hide dry and chapped lips. Another special feature is that it is a retractable pencil, hence no mess of sharpening or wastage of valuable lip color. The pencil tip work both ways – like a lip liner as well as lip color, hence it’s a win-win for beginners like me. I feel like getting all possible shades of this gorgeous range, if they are available in mini sizes like this set.
Let’s sum up the pros and cons:
Pros of Bite Beauty Pomegranate High Pigment Pencil:
- A highly-pigmented lip pencil infused with the goodness of food grade ingredients and resveratol.
- Paraben, sulfate, and phthalate free.
- Gives 70-80% coverage in just one gentle swipe.
- A perfect festive strawberry red shade which will compliment every skin tone.
- Semi-matte lip pencil which gives glossy and creamy finish on the lips, stays on for 6+ hours.
- Glossy sheen stays put as long as the shade stays on the lips.
- Does not bleed around the eyes.
- Does not settle into the fine lines and gives flawless finish.
- Dual purpose product which also gives fine precision like a lip liner.
- Intense color payoff.
- There’s no need to wear a lip balm underneath unless you have badly chapped and flaky lips.
- No need to apply lip balm after removing it off the lips.
- Effortlessly glides on my lips.

Cons of Bite Beauty Pomegranate High Pigment Pencil:
- Does transfer.
- It does have chemicals like titanium dioxide, iron oxides, etc.
Honestly, I hardly bother about these cons as I am head-over-heels with this shade. This is my favorite shade from Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil, Quince and Cranberry come later. I highly recommend this product and shade to everyone. I would love to get it again and again after finishing off this cute pencil.
It’s 4.8/5 for me!
