Éclair

Bite Beauty Éclair Amuse Bouche Liquified Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.25 fl. oz.) is a brighter, medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a cream finish. It was richly pigmented with a creamy, lightweight texture was smooth, lightly tacky, and easy to spread across the lips for even coverage. I had just the slightest amount of product settle into my deeper lip lines but the shine helped to minimize the appearance from a normal viewing distance. It wore well for five hours and was moisturizing while worn.

The Amuse Bouche Liquified Lipstick is supposed to be “moisture-rich, high-pigment” in a “liquified” consistency that has a “creamy, comfortable application.” It’s a lightweight, fluid consistency that was neither runny nor thick on the lips. It does not dry down and feels mostly like a liquid-form of a lipstick (and not so much like a gloss). The majority of the range was incredibly pigmented and spread evenly across the lips. Some shades had a bit of color that sat in my lip lines, which was noticeable from a normal viewing distance with a few but not all. It had a lightly tacky feel on the lips, which helped to adhere as none of the shades I have tested have feathered on me. The formula was lightly hydrating, wore for four to seven hours, and had a light, herbal, lemony scent but no discernible taste.

If you’ve been following Bite for awhile, you might remember the Cashmere Lip Creams from a few years ago, which were also a liquid formula. Unfortunately, I had a couple leak on me and ended up tossing all of them out of fear, so I couldn’t do a true comparison, but from my memory, it was slightly thicker and less tacky while both had a more natural shine after initial application.

Saint No Angel

MAC Saint No Angel Look in a Box Lip Kit ($26.50 for 0.28 oz.) includes travel-sized lipsticks and lipglosses (two of each) in shades of peach/mauve–I liked that the set was more two duos in a box. In the past, MAC has released lip kits that featured full-sized products at a higher price tag, and I’m digging the travel-sized shades with the more palatable $26.50 price tag. Each Lipstick is 0.06 oz. (full-sized is 0.10 oz.) and each Lipglass is 0.08 fl. oz. (full-sized is 0.10 fl. oz.), which puts the value of the set at $47.60: $20.40 worth of lipstick and $27.20 worth of lipgloss.

Bloody Mary

NYX Bloody Mary Matte Lipstick ($5.99 for 0.16 oz.) is a medium-dark, pink-red with very strong, blue undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had good pigmentation that was buildable to full coverage with a half a layer more on top. The lipstick had more of a velvety feel and was slightly firmer in the tube compared to others in the range, and it seemed to cling more noticeably on. This shade wore well for over six hours, left a stain behind, but was moderately drying to me.

The Matte Lipstick is supposed to be “highly pigmented” and have a “velvety, non-glossy” finish. In general, the formula has semi-opaque to opaque color coverage with a velvety texture that glides on without tugging but doesn’t have a lot of slip, so the lipstick won’t slide around while worn. The formula varied from non-drying to moderately drying with wear times that ranged from four to over six hours (deeper, reddish shades lasted quite long). It has a mint scent and no discernible taste. I noticed that the packaging had a tendency to twist up the lipstick too easily (even barely holding it) and sometimes would twist down as I would apply it directly from the tube.

Infuse

Bite Beauty Infuse Amuse Bouche Liquified Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.25 fl. oz.) is a deep, reddened plum with subtle, warm undertones and a cream finish with moderate shine. It was richly pigmented and covered the lips with even color in a single layer. The consistency was lightweight, smooth, and creamy enough to spread easily but did not slide around. It was just a touch tacky but never felt thick or goopy on the lips. The formula was lightly hydrating over the six hours this shade lasted for.

Caramelized

Bite Beauty Caramelized Amuse Bouche Liquified Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.25 fl. oz.) is a medium, peachy brown with warm, yellow undertones and a cream finish. It had rich color payoff with a lightweight, lightly tacky texture that felt smooth and was easy to maneuver across the lips for even coverage. The lipstick stayed on well for five hours and was lightly hydrating but there was a bit of color in some of my lip lines–the shine helped camouflage that for most of the wear.
