The Bite Beauty Best Bite Set is the perfect way to fulfill those desires.
This set contains four miniature High Pigment Lip Pencils in Madeira, Quince, Rhubarb, and Cranberry, encased in a mirrored tin with impressive adorability. (Look! There's fruit on it! I like fruit!)
The pencils twist up, which is a nice feature for those of us who are
|I am a real person, so my lip pencils and nails are messy. My eyebrows are pretty good, though, so I've got that going for me.|
The finish is moderately glossy, but they're all fully opaque. They're super smooth and lovely to apply.

Madeira is as nude as fuck. It's definitely darker than my skin, but there will be many (many, many) people for whom this will not be the case. The color is moderately warm, with a tiny bit of an orange-y tone.

The name originally received an eyebrow raise from me since, uh, that's not what color a quince is, but it turns out that chaenomeles, which are related to the quince, have brightly colored flowers that could conceivably be seen as similar to this lip pencil if you did some photoshopping and squinted a little.

The Bite Beauty Best Bite Set retails for $25 for four 0.05oz pencils ($125 per ounce). The full-size pencils retail for $24 for 0.09oz ($266.67 per ounce). This means that each of the minis is worth approximately $13.33. That means that you are coming out ahead even if you only like two of the four colors in the set. Personally, I know that I will use every color except Madeira, so I'm really happy with my purchase.
