Bite Beauty Kale is a very cool-toned, very dark green with a satin finish. It is a discontinued lipstick that retails for $26.00 and contains 0.15 oz.
Bite Beauty Kale Amuse Bouche Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a deep, blackened green with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. It was intensely pigmented with a creamy, smooth consistency that applied beautifully. I was really impressed by the level of coverage as well as the evenness of application, as deeper shades like this often become a mess. It's very dark, but it's still noticeably green--you definitely get that tint and flash in person under an assortment of lighting types. It wore well for over six hours, was lightly hydrating, and faded evenly. Bite Beauty #052 (P, $18.00) is more muted, cooler, less glossy (95% similar). ColourPop Brucie (LE, $7.00) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Makeup Geek Twerk (LE, $12.00) is lighter, less glossy (90% similar). MAC Mean Green Machine (LE, $19.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay Junkie (DC, $18.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (80% similar). Dolce and Gabbana Smeraldo (LE, $33.00) is more shimmery, lighter, less pigmented (80% similar). MAC Deep with Envy (LE, $19.00) is lighter (80% similar). Maybelline Smoky Jade (P, $7.49) is lighter, cooler, less glossy (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
