Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipsticks (0.15 oz.) individually retail for $26 USD ($30 CAD) and are available in 6 limited edition shades for summer. They are said to be "a collection of high-impact lipsticks in dimensional shades that have been handcrafted to deliver extreme moisture, soft texture, and creamy wear."

Taro is described as an amethyst w/ grey undertones. [LE]
Thistle is described as a mauve infused taupe. [P]
"Swipe on bold, creamy lip color with Bite Beauty’s Amuse Bouche. Created and crafted by hand, Bite’s small batch, low-heat process preserves a balanced blend of lip-quenching nutrients, vitamins, and omega oils that are essential for achieving healthy-looking lips. Made with 12 edible oils and triple milled pigments, this lipstick provides saturated lip color with weightless coverage and a citrus flavor made from fresh pressed fruit."
If you're new to the brand here are some facts: Bite Beauty is exclusive to Sephora and their products are free of petrochemicals, they are also organic and all-natural. All of their lip products are made with nurturing food-grade ingredients that are healthy enough to eat because the founder believes, "You eat what you put on your lips, so your lipstick should be good for you."


The packaging is their signature matte grey tube with a silicone texture and the lipsticks themselves have a natural citrus, herb type scent that can be noticed during application but never really tasted. The formula is very comfortable to wear, lightly creamy and they range from a satin to a more natural finish. They are also supply a nice, bold amount of color with 1 - 2 swipes while being hydrating and rather longer-lasting!



Lavender Jam is a medium, brightened lavender purple with cool undertones and a creamy, luminous finish. This particular shade had noticeably more slip to it than the other shades, which caused the color to lightly fall into lip lines throughout wear. It had excellent, bold pigmentation however that made it appear more even on the lips. Lavender Jam wore well for +5 hours, felt hydrating and left behind a faint stain. (5/5)
* Kat Von D Ayesha was similar, slightly warmer, matte. Kat Von D Coven was lighter, cooler, more matte. NYX Playdate was warmer, more pink, glossy.


Taro is a medium-dark, muted purple with hints of grey, warm undertones and a natural finish. Despite having a creamier consistency, like Lavender Jam, it never caused the color to separate or collect in lip lines—there was a small amount of slip, but the color didn't move around. Again, it had excellent, opaque pigmentation and was comfortable. Taro lasted +5.5 hours, felt hydrating and left behind a slight stain. (5/5)
* MAC Plum Princess (LE) was lighter, cooler, more lilac. MAC Men Love Mystery was lighter, warmer, much more pink. Too Faced Melted Villian was darker, warmer, less muted.


Thistle is a medium, muted mauve with hints of brown, neutral undertones and a natural, satin finish. This shade had great, opaque color payoff that applied evenly to lips overall. It had a creamy consistent which never moved around or gathered into lip lines—it performed and wore nicely, plus it's also a surprisingly more unique mauve shade. Thistle wore well for +5 hours and felt lightly hydrating. (5/5)
ColourPop Lumiere 2 was warmer, more purple, matte. ColourPop Trap was lighter, more muted, matte.


Overall, Bite Beauty is one of my favorite brands when it comes to lip products and despite being a new formula, these continue to live up to expectations! It was a nice surprise to see them step out of the box with more unique shades for this collection, ones that aren't necessarily "summer trendy" if you know what I mean—dark blues, deepened greens and daring purples... They really nailed it!

The new formula is truly comfortable to wear, pigmented, lightly hydrating and compared to past formulas, these ones are quite longer-lasting—if the new formula in general, or any of the shades have caught your eye, than I do recommend checking them out!
