Bite Beauty Black Truffle is a moderately cool-toned, very dark purple with a satin finish. It is a discontinued lipstick that retails for $26.00 and contains 0.15 oz.
Bite Beauty Black Truffle Amuse Bouche Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a "black violet." It's an intense, deep purple with subtle, warmer reddish undertones and a natural sheen. This is one of the glossier shades in the range, but it is quite a bit less glossy compared to most of the Luminous Creme range. It had nearly opaque color payoff with a lightly creamy consistency that didn't tug when applying but still had streak-free color. I had very slight feathering on this shade, which isn't something I normally experience, but there are a few very deep shades I've had issues with. The color wore for over six hours with minimal fading, and while I worried the color might settle into lip lines, I didn't notice it doing so over that time period. It was lightly hydrating.
