This is an exclusive shade for Canada, which is inspired by Toronto. The consistency was creamy, light-medium in weight, and clings to the lips without feeling dry/uncomfortable, but the wear was fantastic–over six hours and was still going strong. What I like about the formula is how smooth it looks on the lips; it doesn’t emphasize my lip lines or gather in them, so the end result is very smooth, voluminous, and even. The only area of improvement is that it’s only slightly hydrating, but it’s comfortable to wear overall. If you like other shades from the Amuse Bouche formula, this is definitely consistent with the range.

Big thanks to Julie for letting me use her as a personal shopper 🙂

The poor Canadians miss out on so many products, nice to see there’s a shade just for them. What is that blush you are wearing? It goes so well with the lipstick

Rats – I wish this were a better colour for me, for, having grown up in TO, I’d love a lipstick named in its honour (though I do have to correct the information – the GTA refers to a much larger are than Toronto proper… spreads to include cities/municipalities like Burlington in the West, and quite a distance north and east and is about 5 times larger than Toronto, the city.

Being a dumb statie, I had to UDict this and scroll down, bec. I could not for the life of me think what that had to do with grand theft auto! Duh and double duh. Hail, Canada. Nice shade.

Ooooh it’s so pretty on you! I have yet to pick this up for myself but after your review I may have to. (always happy to be your Canadian connection!)

This lipstick is really lovely on you Christine. So bright and cheery. I am also loving the eye shadow look. I am hoping you will be doing a look with the Amazon palette from Makeup Atelier as I am desperate for more green shadows. I have a real weakness for them and have so few good ones in my collection. Thank you for all the hard work that you do.

First thing: you look absolutely beautiful. Everything about this look is perfection.

The last thing I need in the world is another warm red, but this looks gorgeous and I am really in love with the Amuse Bouche formula, from what I’ve experienced. Must. Resist. Lipstick…

Being born in Toronto, and having lived there, and moving back there for school soon. I feel like I need this :P. Plus the fact that warm reds look amazing on my warm skin. Hmm!!!

Love this! I’ve been wanting to try the Bite lipsticks forever, and as a Toronto girl with similar colouring to you, this is obviously going to be my gateway into the collection. Thanks for the review Christine, the colour looks gorgeous on you!
