BITE Beauty Best Bite Set

During Sephora's 20% VIB Sale I went ahead and picked up Bite Beauty's Best Bite set. 

The Best Bite set retails for $25 USD ($28 CAD) and includes 4 of Bite's High Pigmented Matte Pencils (0.05 oz) which are a little more than half of the original sized pencil -- with that said, in this set they would individually cost about $6 - $7 which is a steal compared to regular!
Quince is described as a rose berry. 
Rhubarb is described as a plum rose. 
 Cranberry is described as a deep red, and is a limited edition shade.
 Madeira is described as a nude pink.

If you're new to the brand here's some facts: Bite is exclusive to Sephora, it's a Canadian company and their products are free of synthetics, polybutenes and petroleum byproducts. 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." If you've ever stopped by the Bite display in Sephora stores I bet you've heard someone comment, "They're good enough to eat -- literally!"

The packaging for the set is very nice. The lip pencils come in a beautiful cardboard sleeve with rose gold inlay bubbles and text. The tin is matte with a silicone soft texture and features a mirror.The packaging for the lip pencils is also matte with the same silicone texture, as well as a handy twist up bottom. The pencils are retractable, which makes them that much more appealing.

The product itself is highly pigmented, opaque and gives your lips somewhat of a hydrating feeling while wearing. It is "long lasting," on average it wears about 4 hours on me. For some of the brighter, darker shades you do want more of a precise application, so treating the pencils as a lipstick, rather than a quick throw-on pencil may be required.

The only downfalls I had with the Bite High Pigmented Matte Pencils were the smell, wear and dry lips afterwards. The pencils smell like your average lipstick, however sometimes you may get a strong whiff of wax -- the unwanted lipstick smell/taste. The pencils don't set so they do wear away while eating, drinking, etc. I imagine the transfer may happen a little less if you pair with a lip liner. With that said, once the product does wear away your lips are left feeling a little dry.

Overall, I really like the product. It's a nice spin-off to your every day lipstick. They're much like NARS pencils, so if you're a fan of those you'll most likely be a fan of these. The set is definitely worth the buy if you're interested in trying out Bite Beauty products. You're getting 4 products from this set for the price of 1! *And definitely be sure to pick up Cranberry while it's still available!
