Bite Beauty Mauvember 2016 Amuse Bouche Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark pinky plum with cooler undertones and a satin finish.

It’s a limited edition shade, where 100% of the proceeds of sales go toward men’s health. It appears to have sold out online, but it is supposed to be available in-stores in Canada (seems like online only for U.S., unsure whether they will restock or not). They released a shade like it last year (see review) in the Luminous Creme formula, which was cooler and purpler overall, whereas this year’s shade is a bit warmer in comparison (and is of the Amuse Bouche formula). The consistency was firm without being stiff, lightly creamy, and sat fairly well on the lips. It had excellent, full color coverage that lasted for six hours. I found the formula lightly hydrating overall.

Bite Beauty Opal/Jam Amuse Bouche Lipstick Duo

Bite Beauty Opal/Jam Amuse Bouche Lipstick Duo

Bite Beauty Opal/Jam Amuse Bouche Lipstick Duo ($14.00 for 0.10 oz.) is an iridescent, translucent white paired with a deep plum-berry. I didn’t expect to review this as I have swatches for the individual shades, but I happened to receive as a press sample, so I figured might as well! 🙂 It’s a nice duo and fairly consistent with the other three.

Each of the Amuse Bouche Lipstick Duos includes one shimmery shade and one cream shade. The cream shade is part of the permanent range of Amuse Bouche lipsticks. Per the brand’s description, the shimmery shade is supposed to be a “foiled top coat,” though you can wear either shade on its own. I love that Bite has really affordable options during the holidays; I think these are a great way to try the brand’s Amuse Bouche formula, but they’re fitting with the holiday season in a fun, practical way. I had no issues with stability of the smaller-sized lipsticks when applying directly from the tube either, which can be an issue with minis.

Value

  • Amuse Bouche Lipstick: $26.00 for 0.15 oz. or $173.33/oz.
  • Total Value: $17.33

Opal is an iridescent, translucent white with shimmer that shifts between bluish violet and icy blue. It had a strong sheen without obvious sparkle or shimmer. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque color coverage that applied fairly evenly. The consistency was smooth, thin without being dry or stiff in the tube. It lasted for three and a half hours on its own, but it didn’t seem to shorten the wear when layered over another longer-wearing lip product. Bite Beauty Opal (LE, $24.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Pervette (P, $17.00) is darker, warmer (95% similar). NARS Tender Night (LE, $25.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Surratt Beauty Cultive (P, $36.00) is more pigmented (90% similar). Urban Decay Asphyxia (LE, $17.00) is darker, more pigmented (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Jam is a muted, medium-dark berry plum with subtle, cool undertones and very, very fine shimmer. I felt like this was slightly cooler and more pigmented than the individual one I reviewed previously, and it seemed to have a touch less slip, which might have accounted for its better coverage and overall application. It wore well for over six hours, left a stain behind, and was lightly hydrating. 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). MAC Cordovan (P, $21.00) is warmer (95% similar). Bite Beauty Sugared Maple (LE, $24.00) is cooler (95% similar). Bite Beauty Mulberry (P, $24.00) is lighter (95% similar). Bite Beauty Beetroot (P, $26.00) is lighter, brighter, less glossy (90% similar). Urban Decay Venom (P, $17.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). MAC What Joy (LE, $17.00) is less shimmery, less glossy (95% similar). Bite Beauty Plum (LE, $24.00) is darker, warmer (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). MAC Rebel (P, $17.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). Tarte Hangry (P, $20.00) is darker, more muted (85% similar). Urban Decay Mosh Pit (P, $17.00) is darker, more muted, warmer (85% similar).
