new product: Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche

Good morning, my friends! Finding out that Bite Beauty was discontinuing their Luminous Creme lipsticks was quite a blow. However, now that I’ve tried their replacement line, the Amuse Bouche, I am convinced that sometimes change can be fantastic. The Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche lipsticks are creamy and pigmented. Bite offers 34 shades in this new line, ranging from nude (try “Meringue” or “Honeycomb”) to deep black-purple (“Black Truffle”).
I got my hands on three shades to test-drive for you. The first is a beige-nude called Honeycomb.
I was hoping this would be a dupe for my old favorite, Cava, but it leans warmer. Still, it is a beautiful shade.
Next, I tried Sugarcane, a pale pink.
Many light pinks was me out, but I found this one to be quite wearable. I look forward to getting a lot of use out of it in the spring!
Finally, I tried a shade that is quickly becoming a cult-favorite on Instagram – Chai.
Chai is a mauve brown that is dark but not overwhelmingly so.
Having worn these for a few days now, I can say that while they are creamy, they do have decent longevity. This is especially so for the darker shade, Chai. I find that while some of the sheen may wear off with eating or drinking, the pigment stains the lips enough to prevent that awkward fading that we all hate.
The new Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche lipstick is a lovely line. The lipsticks are comfortable to wear. Some are deterred by the new citrus scent, but for those of you familiar with the matte crayons, you’ll find that you’ve smelled this fragrance before! All three shades shown above are wearable and work-appropriate for many skintones.
