Bite Beauty Aquarius Amuse Bouche Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark purple with strong, warm pink undertones and a satin finish. It was, in fact, quite aptly described by Bite as a “berry plum,” as I found myself looking through berry, plum, and purple for dupes and not finding as many as I wanted to find that were that similar.

The texture was dense and firm until it started to warm up against my lips, as the first stroke tugged gently, but as I glided it across my lips, it “melted” and felt creamier and delivered opaque color coverage in a single layer that applied evenly. The consistency of the lipstick was lightly creamy on but had slight tackiness, which helped it adhere for better and longer wear. It seemed to smooth out my lip lines a bit, too, which was nice to see. On me, it wore well for seven hours and was hydrating over time.

Bite has restocked this shade at least once to my knowledge, though I haven’t yet to see it stay in stock, but here’s hoping that we’ll see more restocks.

Formula Overview

$26.00/0.15 oz. - $173.33 Per Ounce

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 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 wear longer than average, from four to eight hours, depending on the intensity and propensity of the shade to stain.

Best & Worst of Bite Beauty Prismatic Multisticks

01/03

Bite Beauty Prismatic Multistick  

Bite Beauty Prismatic Multistick  

Bite Beauty Prismatic Multistick  

Here’s a recap of how well (or poorly) Bite Beauty Prismatic Multisticks ($24.00 for 0.17 oz.) performed! They are a new finish in the Multistick formula–sparkly/glittery, and there are five shades.

The formula is supposed to have “weightless, layerable color” that can be applied to “eyes, cheeks, and lips” with a “breathable, blendable, and buildable” formula. These are a shimmering take on the brand’s previous Multisticks. I found the general feel and performance to be in line with the original formula with the shimmery shades seeming to have a bit more slip and less “powderiness” to them. They base seemed to be more translucent and never buildable to full coverage, and the coverage was semi-sheer to semi-opaque, depending on the shade.

I didn’t have good luck with the Multisticks on eyes (they creased incredibly quickly on me–in minutes, typically!), and I’m sad to report that the Prismatic finish did not go much better for me. I had a lot of trouble applying them evenly onto the lid except when patting them onto the lid and sheering out with my fingertip for a one-and-done eyeshadow look, but I could not build them up or get them to apply evenly on the lid. The only shade that worked decently on the lid (just in terms of application) was Peacock Pearl as it had finer pearl and less larger sparkle. They settled into my creases quickly and did not have any staying power on my eyelids, even over primer or dusted with translucent powder (the wear was better but still dismal).

The formula has performed the best as a cheek color for me, as the were very much as described–blendable and buildable. I liked to use a synthetic blush brush to swirl on the color and then used my fingertips to blend out the edges. The product doesn’t dry down fully, so there was a dewy glow in addition to the subtle pearl/sparkle on the skin. I think that the shine and luminosity are more apparent in person than in photos for this particular product. They applied decently enough as a lip color, but there were issues with the product settling into my lip lines with some shades. They were more comfortable and felt a little more balm-like on the lips than the original Multisticks, which had a thicker, drier, and more powdery feel on my lips. The wear time was between three and five hours.

Rose Pearl

Bite Beauty Rose Pearl Prismatic Multistick ($24.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a medium-dark, coppery brown with copper-to-pink shifting sparkle. This shade seemed to have the most sparkle, so it seemed more glittery compared to the other shades in the line-up. It had semi-sheer, buildable coverage, up to semi-opaque.

The consistency was thin, lightly emollient, but it dried down for the most part on my skin/lips, though it seemed to dry down better and more quickly on cheeks as the application was more diffused. I had no trouble patting and diffusing the color out on my cheeks, and it seemed to wear well for almost nine hours before moving slightly. It looked pretty and sparkly when patted onto the lid and sheered out, but it creased on me as it dried down and only worsened within an hour’s time. On the lips, the color applied evenly and the shimmer dispersed well, but there was a touch of color that had settled into my lip lines; it wore well for four hours on me.
