Bite Beauty Sweet Cream Amuse Bouche Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “muted peach.” It’s a muted, medium coral rose with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had mostly opaque coverage with a slightly thinner consistency compared to other shades in the range, and it pulled at the lips slightly (but the color still went on smoothly).

Bite Beauty Persimmon Amuse Bouche Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as an “intense red-orange.” It’s a bright, medium red-orange with warm undertones and a satin finish. It was intensely pigmented with one-stroke coverage that applied with smooth, even color. The consistency was firm in the tube, enough that there is a light pull as it is applied directly to the lips, though the color itself doesn’t drag.

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.

Peachy colors can be tricky for me, but Sweet Cream looks like one that’s easy to wear. Think it has enough brown and red in it, for me to pull it off. Don’t think I have anything like it in my stash, it’s going on my wish list for next Sephora sale

Carly M Avatar

Oh man, I have to pick me up some of these. Bite lipsticks are probably my favorite I’ve come across and I’d be super stoked to not have to reapply so frequently.

Claire L Avatar

I like Sweet Cream best, I do love the colour of Pickled Ginger but it’d be too bright for me and wash me out. Persimmon also looks good, but too warm for me.

Nicole Avatar

Pickled Ginger is so summery!It’s going on my wish list for sure! Permisson was one of my faves form the original line and I have it on 2 ends of the Mix N mingles and I own the Lab #08 which is listed as 95% dupe.I’ll need to compare it. I looked for these yesterday and I was told they were not going to be in my local store fore a few weeks!

Pickled Ginger is my FAVORITE kind of lipstick shade! The only reason I didn’t order it is because I thought it was basically a repromote of Lip Lab 006, which I have. I guess it’s a lot brighter and different enough to have both!

Alana Avatar

Whoa, Pickled Ginger is a BEAUTY! And with the recommended sticker on it, I’m definitely going to pick this up at Sephora this month! Thank you Christine!

Ashleigh Avatar

The Sephora near me didn’t have these in stock yet on Friday, was bummed because I’m eager to try them! These shades are some of my favorites, they’re very pretty.

Michelle Avatar

I dont know why but I just love this collection. I had to try a couple colors to finally land on Rhubarb. But this photo makes me want sweet cream too. I swear I want them all!

Fiona Avatar

I have Sweet Cream and I love the colour, it’s funny how different it looks on me compared to you though! On me it is a much darker reddish shade but it was exactly what I had been looking for for ages. I see so many reviews saying it is long lasting but I find it doesn’t last very long at all? It transfers soooo easily onto everything and I have to basically re-do my lips after eating anything πŸ™
