Bite Beauty Maple Amuse Bouche Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “brick red.” It’s a slightly muted, medium-dark copper with warm, orange undertones and a satin finish. The color payoff was fantastic with rich, smooth coverage paired with a lightweight, light-medium thick texture that was comfortable to wear and wore well for six hours. It was very lightly hydrating. NARS Golshan (P, $25.00) is darker, glossier (95% similar). Bite Beauty Braised Maple (LE, $24.00) is glossier (95% similar).

Bite Beauty Nori Amuse Bouche Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “deep brown-red.” It’s a muted, dark reddish-brown with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had mostly opaque pigmentation with a light-medium consistency that glided on without tugging or pulling on the lips and yielded smooth, even coverage. This shade wore well for just over five hours and was neither hydrating nor drying while worn. Maybelline Raging Raisin (P, $7.49) is lighter, cooler (95% similar).

Bite Beauty Jam Amuse Bouche Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “rich merlot.” It’s a muted, medium-dark berry plum with subtle, cool undertones and very, very fine shimmer. It had semi-opaque coverage with a noticeable translucency that gave it more of a stained-like appearance on the lips. The consistency had more slip and was lighter in feel as well. This shade wore for five and a half hours but left a strong berry-ish stain afterwards. I found the formula somewhat moisturizing over time. Tom Ford Beauty Jack (2016) (P, $35.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Marsala (P, $21.00) is lighter (90% similar). Smashbox Black Cherry (LE, $21.00) is lighter, cooler (95% similar).

Chanel L'Impatiente (P, $36.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Too Faced Berry Naughty (P, $22.00) is lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Bruise (LE, $17.00) is 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.
