The Amuse Bouche formula is supposed to have “bold, creamy” color with “extreme moisture.” Mistletoe is a new, limited edition shade for the holidays, so it’s not at all a surprise that it’s a variation on a red. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, lightly creamy texture that was firmer initially as I set it to my lips, but it started to melt enough to glide on without tugging after two to three seconds. The color went on evenly, and I didn’t have any issues with the color feathering or migrating past my lip line over time. This shade lasted for seven and a half hours and was lightly hydrating.

The formula of the Amuse Bouche is really good ! i will get ‘ The Perfect Bite Set’ which contains 4 deluxe sample of the collection. This shade is also interesting 🙂

I like this! It seems like most of the deep red lipsticks I like — at least of those that have come out recently — most lean warm, which can have variable results against my complexion. NARS Cruella is my favorite deep cool red that immediately comes to mind. I would love it if you would do a list of five deep cool red lipsticks, Christine!

Gorgeous color. I don’t own any Bite Beauty lipsticks; Kale and Squid Ink are on my list, and I will definitely get them at some point, but now I really want this one too. I have a number of reds, but nothing exactly like this.

I love this color – I am obsessed with darker, cooler reds! They work well on my NC50 skin. But do you think this is similar to NARS Charlotte? I already have that color. Between this red and the NARS Audacious Lip Set with Codie and Eva, I don’t know what to do…

Hi Alicia!

You can compare any two by using our “Compare Any Two” feature – it is located in the sidebar on desktop, below the review on mobile, or through the navigation on the Swatch Gallery.

Charlotte is lighter and warmer! They aren’t night and day different, but the undertone difference might be a big difference on some!

How did you not get any feathering with this sucker? I blotted my lips about 4-5 times and finally added a clear setting power to stop it. I’m thinking about returning it but I’d rather not. <:'( Are my lips just too dry?
