Bite Beauty Cotton Candy Amuse Bouche Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “blue-toned violet.” It’s a bold, bright cotton candy pink with strong, cool blue undertones and a satin finish. It had rich color payoff with a smooth, light-medium thick consistency that covered well and evenly. This shade wore for four and a half hours and was lightly moisturizing to me.

Bite Beauty Kimchi Amuse Bouche Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “shocking pink.” It’s a bright, medium fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a semi-matte finish. It was intensely pigmented with a very lightly creamy texture that did pull a little at the lips due a firmer feel, but it didn’t drag or yield uneven color (just takes more pressure to apply). The color wore well for six and a half hours with a strong stain left behind. I found the formula neither drying nor hydrating on this shade.

Bite Beauty Sangria Amuse Bouche Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “rich fuchsia.” It’s a bright, medium-dark fuchsia pink with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. It’s the type of fuchsia that almost looks “warm” when you compare it to the average fuchsia-hued lipstick. The texture was lightly creamy, easy to apply, and comfortable to wear, while the color coverage was fully opaque. On me, it wore for six and a half hours and was a bit moisturizing overall. Bite Beauty Framboise (P, $24.00) is darker (95% similar). Bite Beauty Pink Lady (P, $24.00) is darker (95% similar). Too Faced Troublemaker (P, $22.00) is darker, more muted, less glossy (90% similar). MAC Tats (LE, $17.00) is darker, more muted, warmer (90% similar).

Formula Overview

Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.15 oz.) is supposed to have “bold, creamy color” with “extreme moisture, soft texture, and creamy wear.” The majority of the range is very pigmented–typically opaque with one pass–with a few shades being semi-opaque but usually buildable. All 34 shades are shimmer-free and vary being a soft satin finish to a natural finish (light shine but not glossy). The consistency is very lightly creamy to lightly creamyu with some shades requiring light-medium pressure and can pull the lip a bit when gliding it across the lips, though the color doesn’t appear ragged and the bullet itself doesn’t feel stiff (while other shades applied without tugging, so check individual shade reviews!) The majority of the shades I’ve tested have been lightly hydrating to non-drying and fairly comfortable to wear for the long-haul. They wear longer than average, from four to eight hours, depending on the intensity and propensity of the shade to stain.

In comparison to the Luminous Creme formula: The level of color payoff and lemony scent are the two things that are similar, but they feel quite different on. If you have drier lips and need the intense hydration that the Luminous Creme formula offered, I don’t know if you’re going to like these. The Luminous Creme formula had a thicker consistency with a very creamy texture that glided on and never tugged at all, and the thicker consistency paired with the glossier finish was more forgiving on lips as it didn’t emphasize lines, natural texture, dryness, or flaking. Some had issues with the Luminous Creme formula bleeding/feathering and shorter-wear due to the amount of slip (high), and the Amuse Bouche formula has much, much less slip, so the wear is longer. I didn’t typically experience bleeding/feathering with the Luminous Creme formula, and that is also true with Amuse Bouche, but I would expect less with this more satin-finish formula for most (but not all). The scent seemed slightly stronger in the Amuse Bouche range, but it wasn’t noticeable after I was done applying the color.
