Bite Beauty Radish Amuse Bouche Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “deep magenta.” It’s a bright, medium-dark raspberry pink with cool, pink undertones and a satin finish. It had very nearly opaque coverage with a lightweight consistency that had just enough slip to apply with smooth, even color. The color wore well for over six hours and left a stain behind. It was very lightly moisturizing for me. Bite Beauty Palomino (P, $24.00) is darker (95% similar). Bite Beauty #004 (LE, $36.00) is darker (95% similar).

Bite Beauty Beetroot Amuse Bouche Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “bold berry.” It’s a slightly muted, medium-dark reddish berry with cool undertones and a satin finish. It had mostly opaque color payoff with a lightweight consistency that went on evenly. This shade wore well for almost six hours, left a stain behind, and was just a bit moisturizing.

Bite Beauty Tannin Amuse Bouche Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “poppy red.” It’s a muted, medium-dark red with warm, brown tones and a glossy sheen. This was definitely one of the shinier shades in the range, and it had a lot more slip–reminded me more of the Luminous Creme range, though this was still less thick and less glossy overall. The color wore for five hours and left a stain behind, but I had slight feathering after four hours. It was moderately hydrating while worn. Chanel Rouge Tentation (169) (P, $36.00) is warmer (95% similar). Urban Decay Gash (P, $17.00) is more shimmery, glossier (95% 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.
