Bite Beauty Enoki Amuse Bouche Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a light, peachy brown with warmer, yellow undertones and a satin finish. The color coverage was fully opaque in one pass, while the lipstick had a smooth, lightweight texture that applied without dragging or skipping on the lip. It did not have too much slip, though, so it adhered well and did not slide around. I noticed a bit of color that sunk into my lip lines after two hours of wear, while the total wear time was closer to four and a half hours.

The Amuse Bouche formula is supposed to have a “soft texture” with “extreme moisture” and “bold, creamy” color. It’s a denser, very pigmented formula that is lightly to moderately hydrating, lasts four to six hours (on average), and applies evenly with a lightweight texture that has a creamy look but doesn’t slide around easily. The formula is citrus-scented.

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.

Authentic Red

MAC Authentic Red Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium-dark ruby red with cooler undertones and fine, red pearl paired with a natural sheen–a little shine but not truly glossy. The consistency was denser and lightly tacky, so the bullet dragged a bit as it applied but moved more readily as the warmth of my lips melted the lipstick. It had semi-opaque color coverage, which was somewhat buildable, that went on evenly. It wore well for five hours, left a subtle, reddish stain behind, and was neither drying nor hydrating.

Formula Overview

$18.50/0.10 oz. - $185.00 Per Ounce

MAC Lipstick comes in a variety of finishes, and the pigmentation and wear tend to be dependent on the finish. The sheer finishes, like Lustres, tend to wear for only a couple of hours and have sheer coverage (as designed) and are non-drying. Some of the original Matte shades have a stiffer, drier formula, while newer ones have a more velvety, silicone-feel to them, and the latter are creamier, more comfortable to wear, and easier to apply, but most Matte shades are quite pigmented and long-wearing, though some are drying. The Amplified and Satin finishes tend to have good pigmentation, lightly creamy to moderately creamy consistencies with a bit of shine, and moderate to long wear with deeper, richer shades wearing longer. The Frost and Metallic finishes have the most variance between shades with coverage ranging from semi-sheer to opaque with average wear and non-drying to slightly drying formulas. All MAC lipsticks are vanilla-scented but have no discernible taste.

Makeup Geek BFF Plush Lip Creme ($14.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a light-medium pink with warm, yellow undertones and a natural finish. It had good color payoff, but the consistency had a little graininess to it that was noticeable when I pressed my lips together. It had good pigmentation–nearly opaque–that covered evenly but emphasized lip lines due to settling. This shade lasted for three hours on me, but the color pulled further into my lip lines while worn. The formula was neither drying nor hydrating, and it felt comfortable to wear.

The Plush Lip Creme formula is supposed to be “highly pigmented” with a hybrid, “cream and mousse” consistency. The consistency has a very velvety, smooth feel that wasn’t heavy nor did it feel thin or watered down. It seemed to be quite flattering and forgiving when it was initially applied, but there were some shades where the color pulled into my lip lines while worn, and they only lasted two to four hours on me. They were more comfortable to wear than liquid lipstick that dries down to a matte finish and were mostly non-drying. They did not have any noticeable scent or taste to me.

Ingredients

Dimethicone, Bis-Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate-2, Octyldodecanol, Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Diisostearyl Malate, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Nylon-12, Vinyl Dimethicone/Methicone Silsesquioxane Crosspolymer, Polyethylene, Kaolin, Sorbitan Oleate, Limonene, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Flavor/Aroma, Vanilla Planifolia Fruit Extract, Linalool, Citral, Citronellol, Geraniol, HDI/Trimethylol Hexyllactone Crosspolymer Cyclotetrasiloxane.

Marriage Material

Makeup Geek Marriage Material Plush Lip Matte ($12.00 for 0.06 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark plum with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. The texture was mousse-like, airy and lightweight, and while it was quite pigmented, the actual consistency was grainy and seemed poorly mixed (in terms of ingredients). The color appeared “cracked” as the color pulled away from where my lip lines were, even though it did not dry down like a typical liquid lipstick. As the color wore on, I had more significant settling of the color into my lip lines, which made it appear more uneven overall. It lasted for four hours, left a pink stain behind, and my lips felt tight and drier after wearing it (but it did not feel dry while it was on)–almost raw at times.

The formula is supposed to be a “cross between a cream and a mousse” that is “highly pigmented” with a “soft matte” finish. The consistency has an incredibly velvety, creamy feel without being slippery or wet, so it felt very smooth going on the lips and lightweight. I liked the way it felt on the lips for an hour or so of wear, but after testing about half of the range, they did not wear down well with an uneven fade and significant color in lip lines. While traditional liquid lipstick can dry and look “cracked,” I noticed that despite feeling quite forgiving, the finish often was not as lip color settled into and separated away from lip lines. The formula wasn’t designed to dry down to a flat, matte finish, and it does not, so the transfer was similar to that of a traditional, satin-finished tube lipstick for me. On me, the liquid lipsticks have lasted between four and six hours on me. They seem mostly non-drying on but seemed more drying as I wore them, particularly if I wore two in a row, which would leave my lips feeling raw.

Just a heads up, each tube contains a surprisingly small amount of product (0.06 fl. oz.) relative to a lot of popular liquid lipstick formulas (Kat Von D contains 0.22 fl. oz., Anastasia contains 0.11 fl. oz., Smashbox contains 0.13 fl. oz., Stila contains 0.10 fl. oz., MAC contains 0.17 fl. oz.).

Makeup Geek Jetsetter Plush Lip Creme ($14.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a light-medium peachy brown with warm undertones and a lightly glossy, cream finish. The color coverage was nearly opaque, while it had a smooth, cream-like feel that spread easily across the lips. It was a little slippery, so it did settle into my lip lines over the three hours it lasted. The formula did not dry out my lips and was fairly comfortable to wear.

Makeup Geek Trailblazer Plush Lip Creme ($14.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark mauve with grayer, more neutral undertones and a lightly glossy, cream finish. It had good color payoff with a smooth, cream-like texture that sat fairly well on the lips and only had slight settling toward the end of its wear time (three hours). The color applied evenly and was comfortable to wear, and I’d describe the feel of it as non-drying.
