BITE Beauty Blanc Matte Crème Lip Crayon


Bite Beauty Matte Crème Lip Crayon in Blanc icon(0.05 oz.) retails for $24 USD ($28 CAD) and is said to be "a creamy lip pencil that delivers a matte, yet moist wash of color in a stark wash hue—created to augment and transform any color paired with it."

Blanc is described as a pure white. [P]
"Bite Beauty’s innovative, Matte Crème Lip Crayon formula offers premium, even, and highly pigmented color payoff, while organic fruit butters, jojoba, and castor oil leave your lips soft and hydrated. It’s infused with naturally-derived orange peel wax, extracted from organic oranges, which helps to protect and seal in moisture.
White is my favorite pigment to work with in the lab. The freshness of pure white instantly transforms color, and when used directly on the lips in the creamy Matte Crème formula it becomes an artistry tool that effortlessly creates an Ombre, transforms to a new shade, or on its own creates an on-trend look for lips."—Susanne Langmuir, Bite Beauty Founder."
If you're new to the brand here are some facts: Bite is exclusive to Sephora and their products are free of petrochemicals. They are also organic and all-natural. All lip products are made with nurturing food-grade ingredients that are healthy enough to eat! The founder believes, "You eat what you put on your lips, so your lipstick should be good for you."


The packaging is a simple, matte black pen-style tube with a silicone texture. They have a slight citrus, fruity scent that can be noticed on initial application, but it does fade rather quickly. The product is retractable and everything under the cap is color coded depending on the shade. The very bottom section of the pencil can also be popped out to reveal a sharpener, which is incredible helpful for creating precise edges or for use on-the-go!


Blanc is a brightened white with neutral undertones and a satin finish. Although this shade is marketed towards mixing with other products to create an ombré lip or custom colors, it can be worn alone and the formula is consistent with the other shades in the line. It applied smoothly, evenly and had mostly opaque pigmentation. The consistency was lightly creamy (a touch thicker than the more traditional shades), very comfortable and lightly hydrating throughout wear. On its own, Blanc wore well for +3.5 hours before fading. (4/5)
When paired or layered, Blanc blends and lightens shades easily with both Bite Beauty products, as well as other brands. Also, similar formulas and finishes pair more easily—i.e. you wouldn't want to try using this shade over a liquid lipstick, as they wouldn't mix well, if at all, together.
When I mixed Blanc across the entire lip, it never caused products to feather or bleed, but I felt the wear time was shortened slightly. Keep in mind, deeper shades typically wear longer, so lightening them would naturally cause them to wear faster. However when I wore Blanc on the center of the lip to create an ombré effect, I didn't notice the original product wore differently or for less time. (5/5)

Overall, this was a great concept that really works! Not many brands offer a way to lighten or create custom shades without hassle, so huge props to Bite Beauty for thinking outside of the box! Like the regular Matte Crème Lip Crayon shades, the formula was comfortable to wear, lightly hydrating, pigmented and easy to apply! Whether you've been trying to achieve an effortless ombré lip or you just love to experiment and play around with colors, than this product will certainly be a must have in your makeup bag!
