Bite Beauty Souffle Amuse Bouche Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “marshmallow pink.” It’s a pale pink with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. It had mostly opaque coverage, but it had some streakiness to it, so this one might be good to pair with a lip liner or primer. It doesn’t have a ton of slip, so it applied better than several other similarly-colored shades (from my experience). This shade lasted for four hours and was lightly hydrating. NARS Stourhead (LE, $25.00) is cooler (90% similar). LORAC Foodie (LE, $17.00) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Playing Koi (LE, $20.00) is warmer (95% similar).

Bite Beauty Sugarcane Amuse Bouche Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “pale pink.” It’s a light, warm-toned pink with a satin finish. It had opaque color payoff with a lightweight, comfortable texture that was firmer and had a tendency to emphasize the texture of the lips, so you’ll want to exfoliate/prep lips for the smoothest finish. The lipstick wore for four hours on me and was neither hydrating nor drying. Colour Pop Love Muffin (P, $7.00) is darker (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Sonic Truth (244) (P, $30.00) is lighter, warmer (95% similar). Maybelline Peach Buff (P, $7.99) is darker (95% similar).

Bite Beauty Honeycomb Amuse Bouche Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “beige nude.” It’s a light-medium, peachy beige with warm undertones and a soft shine. It had rich color payoff, but the consistency was a little thicker and heavier on the lips, and it pulled into lip lines from the get-go. This worsened over the four hours it lasted, though the thicker consistency allowed me to smooth the color back out for the most part by pressing my lips together. It was lightly hydrating over time. Makeup Geek Jetsetter (P, $12.00) is darker (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty No Angel (242) (P, $30.00) is darker (90% similar).

Formula Overview

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. All 34 shades are shimmer-free and vary being a soft satin finish to a natural finish (light shine but not glossy). The consistency is very lightly creamy to lightly creamyu 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 wear longer than average, from four to eight hours, depending on the intensity and propensity of the shade to stain.

In comparison to the Luminous Creme formula: The level of color payoff and lemony scent are the two things that are similar, but they feel quite different on. If you have drier lips and need the intense hydration that the Luminous Creme formula offered, I don’t know if you’re going to like these. The Luminous Creme formula had a thicker consistency with a very creamy texture that glided on and never tugged at all, and the thicker consistency paired with the glossier finish was more forgiving on lips as it didn’t emphasize lines, natural texture, dryness, or flaking. Some had issues with the Luminous Creme formula bleeding/feathering and shorter-wear due to the amount of slip (high), and the Amuse Bouche formula has much, much less slip, so the wear is longer. I didn’t typically experience bleeding/feathering with the Luminous Creme formula, and that is also true with Amuse Bouche, but I would expect less with this more satin-finish formula for most (but not all). The scent seemed slightly stronger in the Amuse Bouche range, but it wasn’t noticeable after I was done applying the color.

I have Sugarcane and it first applies as a warm pink, but changes into a neutral-to-cool pink within 5-10 minutes. I am very fair with cool undertones, so I’m betting that’s the difference. My natural lip color is a little mauve-ish, so I’m sure that influences the undertone as well. I’m enjoying Sugarcane, but I’m not finding the Amuse Bouche formula as hydrating and forgiving as the Luminous Cremes. They are more cousins than sisters, in my opinion.

Thanks for the reviews! They are extremely helpful, as always πŸ™‚

That’s very interesting how it changes within a few minutes, Eliz! I don’t think the formulas are much alike. I certainly don’t think it’s a replacement – it’s more of a discontinuation of one formula and the addition of another.

Sugarcane is so pretty on you!! It looks like a great color for a nude-ish lip look! Christine, is there a way to pull dupes in the Dupe List by color, but different formula? Like if I wanted to find a lip gloss dupe for Sugarcane? I love the color, but find lighter colors to be particularly challenging on my chronically dry, chapped lips. Thank you!

I don’t pull dupes outside of formula, so while one could exist, I don’t look or add them so they are unlikely to be there.

I like both Sugarcane and Souffle but I’m not sure how they will look with me being so pale. I still think Sake is a perfect nude out of the whole range for my coloring. Luckily, I have my mini Radish to try today to get an idea of the formula.

These sure are light! Souffle would never look right on me, LoL! I cannot really imagine it looking all that great except on super fair peeps. Sugarcane is pretty nice, though! Reminds me of a glossier, slightly lighter version of MAC Please Me, which is as light as I dare go. For Sugarcane and Honeycomb I have dupes, so I don’t think I actually need those.

Definitely a good thing for the wallet. I think I’ve loved the looks of every single other shade you’ve reviewed so far. I only bought Black Truffle so far, and I got the Radish mini point perk from Sephora. I really love both. Opaque, pigmented, and they don’t feather or bleed. Good stuff!!!

None of these would look good on me. I do like them, but they’d threw me right into zombieland πŸ™‚

All of these are pretty, but Sugarcane might be my favorite. I really dig its warmth, though it is a bummer to know that it might show up cooler on more pigmented lips.

These particular shades aren’t for me, but the formula seems impressive! I’m excited to see swatches of Chai and Verbena. I was eyeing Liquorice as well!

I’ve been impressed by the wear/relative comfort, though I do prefer the prior formula for something ultra-hydrating!
