Violet Quest #1: Bite Beauty High Pigment Matte Pencil in Lavender Violet

The Violet Lipstick Quest has begun! I want them ALL hahaha! Which actually isn’t a bad thing really, because truth be told, there AIN’T a lot of violet lipsticks around even though they seem to be popping up here and there in various brands.

I figured the first brand I should check is one of my absolute favourite lipstick brands, Bite Beauty. And YUP! They have violet! Meet Bite Beauty High Pigment Matte Pencil in Lavender Violet($28 CDN):

Bite Beauty High Pigment Matte Pencil in Lavender Violet

Bite Beauty High Pigment Matte Pencil in Lavender Violet is amazing. I’ve never actually tried the Bite Beauty Matte Pencils, but WOWZA. SO GOOD! This goes on rather glossy at first, but then as it dries down it becomes more matte. This is a modern matte look-not quite so dry looking, but  not quite completely matte. Bite Beauty lips products contain super antioxidant resveratrol, which fights free radicals with potent long-term antiaging benefits. Each lip pencil contains the amount of resveratrol found in five glasses of red wine. YES. Plus they are free from synthetics, polybutenes, and petroleum byproducts and made exclusively with lip nurturing food-grade ingredients that are healthy enough to eat. I find comfort in the fact that if need be and I’m REALLY hungry, I can chow down on the Bite Beauty Lipsticks in my purse. NOTE: I always carry at least two of them with me at all times because you just never know….

So comfortable to wear! And it lasts really well too! I get about 4 hours of wear, with no travelling at all.

Swear to God, I think Bite Beauty High Pigment Matte Pencil in Lavender Violet makes me look 10 years younger(well, that and also some Neostrata skincare I have been loving and seeing some REAL RESULTS from lately):

How much do I love Bite Beauty High Pigment Matte Pencil in Lavender Violet? LOTS. You need to try one of these, be it this violet one or any of the other 20 shades available. JUST DO IT. You won’t be sorry!

You can find Bite Beauty and all of their lip products at Sephora!!

Happy Friday everyone!! I’m so glad it’s Friday! How about you?


  • Sarah P

    I have one of the teeny-tiny double-ended Bite minis and now I want MOAR. Every single product they make just looks stand-out amazing. Love this colour!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      I agree!! I just love their products! Have you tried a gloss from them? I’ll be reviewing one soon!

  • Vanessa

    Squee! I’m excited for purple. You look gorgeous.

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Thanks Vanessa!! I’m loving the ones I did get! I’ve got more to show!

  • Maggie

    Tracy, you kill me with your gorgeousness. Is there ANY look you can’t rock? I mean, the silver faux-pomp and violet lip???

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      LOL hahaha thanks Maggie! You are too kind!

  • Hey Tracy, the whole look is AMAZING! Are you wearing falsies or is it a mascara I’ve got to try? Violet really pops on your tanned skin! I don’t particularly enjoy similar shades on myself, but I sure do on you!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Thanks Sunny!! 😛 Yeah I’ve been walking outside a lot and even with sunscreen on I’ve gotten some colour. Although I was testing a foundation that was a tad too dark for me here, so I’m not as tanned as it looks here haha!

      No falsies-truth be told I never wear them-kind of hate the feeling of them on! I’m wearing the Chanel Inimitable in Blue in this one!

      • Oh I wish the formula worked as well for me! Unfortunately it makes my eyelashes a clumped, brittle mess!

      • TracyBeautyReflections

        Accck no I got that wrong-it’s the Volume de Chanel one-not the waterproof one. The good one they make haha. This is the one from the Spring Collection.

      • OOO OK now that makes sense LOL

  • Icaria

    Oooh so pretty on you! It’s almost tempting to get but I have nothing to go with this color. I rarely stop and look at Bite since at my Sephora they’re way in the back at the end of a gondola. So easy to miss. I’ll try to think about having a closer look next time. 🙂

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Thanks Helene! You must try one of their lipsticks-you will love them!

  • This shade is perfect on you! Your top and jacket complement it so well. I think half the battle is finding something to wear that emphasizes violet lips in the right way. Have you tested it for removability from teeth? That will be vitally important should you choose to indulge in an emergency snack in public.

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      I will do that for sure! Thanks Alison! 😀

  • Modern matte, I like that!

    I want more of these, too, like a great orange red 😀

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      So many great colours they have! I want more too. I think I’ll look for a baby pink next!

  • Holy violet! It even LOOKS comfortable! Gorgeous shade, Tracy!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Thanks Laura!!! So comfy!!

  • That is a stunner! I love it on you. I would love to see your teeth after you chow down on that lip pencil 🙂 I have been at the point of hunger that I probably would have considered it, on shopping excursions.

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Thanks Taylor! LOL me too. I wonder if it would stain my teeth hahahaha!

  • It looks fab on you! But I just know this isn’t a colour I’d voluntarily wear 😉 Still, I’m very intrigued by Bite Beauty lip pencils. I have read so many rave reviews yet I haven’t been able to find them online yet! grrr…

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      🙂 Thanks Paris! They are really comfy and I think you’d love them! If you’d like me to help you out, I’m willing and able!

  • Gaaah I am going to swatch some Bite Beauty lippies the next time I’m at Sephora. I blame you for my future Bite Beauty purchases, Tracy!!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      LOL I get blamed for loads of things these days hahaha! You need to try them Ashley-they are really lovely!

  • Um I LOVE this color on you!!! Feisty fritatas! You need to add Illamasqua’s Boost lipgloss to your Violet Quest list. It’s in this same color family, super pigmented, non-sticky, and has a really unique iridescent quality to it! It would look banana bonkers on you!!!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Thanks!! I do want to get that one! LOL you are the queen of alliteration woman!! 🙂 I love it hahaha!

  • Lily

    It looks pink on your arm, but totally purple on your lips!! I’m not that adventurous but the texture seems amazing. I can’t get Bite beauty here and I’m not sure if our local Sephora carries it, but when I can my hands on them, I’ll definitely give them a try!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      I know! It’s so purple on my lips. LOVE!
      Their lipsticks are SO GOOD Lily! You must try them when you can!

  • wow it looks gorgeous on you!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Thanks! I love it!

  • Emma Bovary

    Such a pretty colour- though I’ve packed away a lot of my lip loot for the move, every time my eye catches on something vaguely violet I think of you!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Hahaha I like that! 🙂
      Packing!!! Ugggh-hope it’s going well! I can’t imagine having to pack away my makeup! SCARY!!

  • Oh wow, what a freaking amazing violet! It looks so good on you too. I’ll have to keep an eye out for Bite Beauty in Oz.

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Thanks Olgie!! I hope it gets there! AMAZING lipsticks!

      • Good grief. I did a search and found The Iconic selling them – for $37 each! Perhaps I need to pass on this. That makes me a sad panda.

      • TracyBeautyReflections

        WHAT?? Wow. If you really want one, I can get you one! But probably an American blogger buddy could get it cheaper than up here though.

  • Wow, this really looks amazing! I’m not sure how violet would look on me, but it looks FABULOUS on you!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Thanks! You should try it!

  • Liz

    It’s so beautiful on you!

    I love BITE but I despise that they charge us more in Canada despite being a Canadian brand with a lab right here in Toronto. WTF.

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      I know-it’s RIDICULOUS.

  • Joyce (bronzer bunny)

    violet!!! crazy. it is so pretty on you 🙂

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Hahaha thanks!
