Bite Beauty Bronze/Pepper Amuse Bouche Lipstick Duo ($14.00 for 0.10 oz.) features the most dramatic layered result of the duos, as the coppery top coat really changes the color of the rosy plum lipstick quite a bit. If you like more metallic, pigmented color, you may also find that this duo is better suited for wearing the metallic shade alone, as it did over a lot more coverage.
Bite Beauty Rose Gold/Fig Amuse Bouche Lipstick Duo ($14.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a well-paired set of shades, as it creates a warm, rosy lip that can be shimmery or satin-like, depending on whether you layer the two shades. I liked both shades, and I felt Fig was consistent with the permanent version I had in wear and color.
Bite Beauty Gold/Sour Cherry Amuse Bouche Lipstick Duo ($14.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a holiday party duo if I’ve seen one–a gold, glimmering top coat paired with a rich, ruby red. The richness of the Amuse Bouche formula can overwhelm the shimmer if applied directly from the tube (the shimmer was noticeable, but it appeared ruby in hue–but it did result in a gorgeous, ruby red slippers kind of effect), but I had better success patting it on over the red color with a fingertip to make the gold shimmer standout more.
There are four Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick Duos ($14.00 for 0.10 oz.) available, and they are all limited edition. I bought three of the four to try, as they included one new shade (the metallic shade). The fourth duo is Opal/Jam, which I believe I have reviewed before (Opal here and here), when they released Opal as a limited edition shade. I also bought the new Gold Creme Lip Gloss, which is out of stock online, but there’s a swatch below for your reference.
Swipe on gorgeous lip color for every festive occasion with the Amuse Bouche Lipstick Duo. It features a signature Amuse Bouche shade with a limited-edition, foiled top coat that’s perfect for the holiday season. Available at Sephora.
