Bite Beauty Libra Amuse Bouche Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a deep, chocolatly brown with warm, yellowish undertones and a satin finish. It had opaque pigmentation in a single stroke, which was as marketed, and the color applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without dragging on them. The consistency dense, lightly creamy, and had a touch of tackiness. It wore well for six hours and was moisturizing while worn.

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.
The consistency is very lightly creamy to lightly creamy 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 have a herbal, lemony scent but no discernible taste. They wear longer than average, from four to eight hours, depending on the intensity and propensity of the shade to stain.
