Review and Swatches of Bite Beauty's Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Pepper, Gazpacho, and Beetroot8:58 PM
Guys, I have a new favorite lipstick. Bite Beauty has changed the game with these amazing lipsticks. They couldn't have picked a better name for them.
*I received these products from Influenster for testing purposes.*
This is by far the best product I have ever received from Influenster and it is one of the best formulas I have ever tried. They were kind enough to send me three shades: Pepper, Gazpacho, and Beetroot.
Bite says that the Amuse Bouche lipsticks are handmade in small batches and using low heat. The low heat process help preserve all of the oils, nutrients, and vitamins that make it nourishing for your lips. There are 34 lipsticks in this line, so they have pretty much every shade you could ever need.
Pepper is described as a dusty mauve. This is an interesting color. It changes tone depending lighting. Sometimes it does look like a pinky mauve, then it can look almost like a terra cotta shade. Either way, I like it.

Gazpacho, as the name indicates, is a true tomato hued, blue based red. It is the most flattering shade of red lipstick in my collection.

Beetroot is a bold, reddish berry.

They are insanely creamy! I have never tried a lipstick that feels so smooth, yet it doesn't have too much slip. It applies easily, but it doesn't migrate everywhere. I don't know what kind of magic Bite put into these lipsticks, but they somehow manage to stay on all day without losing that creaminess. As a result, they feel nice and hydrating. It is one of the very few lipsticks that don't leave my lips feeling dry at the end of the day. Needless to say, the Amuse Bouche are a nice break from the matte lip trend. The pigment is great, but depending on the shade, you might need two or three layers for full opacity. Pepper, for example, needs at least two layers. Gazpacho also tends to get a little bit feathery around the edges, but haven't much of an issue from it.
These lipsticks are scented. They have a sugary, citrus scent that reminds me a lot of the Fresh Sugar Lip Balm. It is a little bit intense at first, but it doesn't linger. I love the scent of them because it isn't disgustingly sweet or synthetic
These are food grade lipsticks. Technically, you could eat them and be okay. They don't have parabens or any dangerous chemicals. Only nourishing ingredients and high pigment.
The packaging is the standard matte grey that we have come to expect from Bite. At the top of the cap, it looks like a bite has been taken out. It is cute and simple, but you still know that it is a Bite Beauty lipstick.
These lipsticks are pricey at $26 a pop, but the quality cannot be beat. My Sephora Inside JC Penney just got them in stock and I definitely plan on checking out more colors. Especially some of the lighter shades.
