Bite Beauty Molasses Amuse Bouche Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “rich toffee.” It’s a muted, medium-dark peachy-brown with warm undertones and a satin sheen. It had rich, opaque pigmentation with a creamy, smooth texture that glided on without pulling and delivered even coverage in one stroke. This shade lasted for five hours on me, and it was lightly hydrating while worn. MAC Strip Me Down (LE, $17.00) is lighter, cooler, less glossy (95% similar).

Bite Beauty Meringue Amuse Bouche Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “peachy nude.” It’s a light-medium, pinky-peach with warm undertones and a satin sheen. It had mostly opaque coverage with a light-medium consistency that seemed to emphasize the natural texture of the lips slightly. It could have applied a little more evenly. This shade wore for four and a half hours, but some color pulled into lip lines over time. IT was neither drying nor hydrating. Bite Beauty Café (LE, $24.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). MAC Antonio's Girls (LE, $17.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Petulance (LE, $17.00) is warmer (90% similar).

Bite Beauty Verbena Amuse Bouche Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “rose terracotta.” It’s a muted, medium-dark plum with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation with a lightly creamy texture that pulled but didn’t drag (it was firmer in the tube), but it seemed less forgiving applied as it made my lips look almost dry, though it didn’t feel as clingy as it looked! This shade wore for four and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. Colour Pop Mosh Pit (LE, $5.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Tarte Beach Bum (P, $22.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Tarte Praise (LE, $24.00) is darker, more muted, cooler (90% similar).

Bite Beauty Chai Amuse Bouche Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “mauve brown.” It’s a muted, medium-dark rosy plum with warm undertones and a satin sheen. The color payoff was nearly opaque, while the texture was lightly creamy and didn’t tug on the lips. The formula wasn’t hydrating, but it wasn’t drying either. On me, the color wore for four and a half hours. Colour Pop Mosh Pit (LE, $5.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Make Up For Ever C108 (P, $22.00) is darker (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.
