Once I discovered BITE Beauty, it has been nothing but love from then on. They’re highly pigmented, infused with food-grade ingredients, and best of all, they’re handmade in Canada, specifically in Toronto, Ontario!
It’s tempting to buy everything from BITE Beauty, but does one person really need ALL those lip products? Hypothetically, yes. Realistically, no. Luckily the XO Bite: Prep, Line and Colour Lip Set has your go-to from hydrating the lips to the finishing touch of colour.
The set comes with a full-size Agave Lip Balm in Natural, a mini version of The Lip Pencil, and three mini Amuse Bouche Liquified Lipsticks, all in a covetable Bite makeup bag.
Agave Lip Balm
BITE’s bestselling lip balm provides weightless yet long-lasting moisture making lips nourished and hydrated throughout the day. It’s handmade with natural and organic ingredients, including agave nectar, shea butter and Madagascan vanilla CO2 extract, to help deeply hydrate. And, its nurturing base, made with lanolin and beeswax, helps seal in moisture.
Lip Balms are a daily essential (at least to me). Without taking care of your lips and keeping them moisturized and hydrated, there’s really no point in going forward and applying any lip products. The Agave Lip Balm kept my lips moisturized throughout the day, it does provide a beeswax texture but it’s not sticky. I also like applying the lip balm before going to sleep and waking to soft, smooth lips.
The Lip Pencil
The Lip Pencil glides on precisely and effortlessly to help prolong lipstick wear and prevent feathering. Made with whipped shea butter and three times the typical amount of pigment, this creamy yet weightless lip liner pencil provides opaque coverage. The Lip Pencil is versatile enough to be worn on its own, or paired with (nearly any shade of) lipstick for budge-proof impact.

Amuse Bouche Liquified Lipstick
Mix up the look with one of three mini Amuse Bouche Liquified Lipsticks. Inspired by a melted Amuse Bouche Lipstick, the Liquified Lipsticks (unlike traditional liquid lipsticks), features high pigment colour, indulgently creamy wear and a satin finish. Instead of silicones, monoi butter and coconut oil are used to create a melt-on-your-mouth creamy wear and satin finish.
The Liquified Lipsticks provides the same creaminess and pigmentation as the Amuse Bouche Lipsticks. It also features a fresh-pressed citrus scent and flavour. The precise applicator has a slight curve, providing easy application and lip looks that won’t compromise on definition. The liquified lipstick wears very comfortably on the lips, it also did not dry out my lips or leave a sticky feeling, though it does transfer. There was very minimal fade but overall stayed on all day, no need for reapplication.
