Bite Beauty Infuse is a moderately warm-toned, dark plum with a cream finish. It is a discontinued lipstick that retails for $24.00 and contains 0.25 oz.
Bite Beauty Infuse Amuse Bouche Liquified Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.25 fl. oz.) is a deep, reddened plum with subtle, warm undertones and a cream finish with moderate shine. It was richly pigmented and covered the lips with even color in a single layer. The consistency was lightweight, smooth, and creamy enough to spread easily but did not slide around. It was just a touch tacky but never felt thick or goopy on the lips. The formula was lightly hydrating over the six hours this shade lasted for.
The Amuse Bouche Liquified Lipstick is supposed to be "moisture-rich, high-pigment" in a "liquified" consistency that has a "creamy, comfortable application." It's a lightweight, fluid consistency that was neither runny nor thick on the lips. It does not dry down and feels mostly like a liquid-form of a lipstick (and not so much like a gloss). The majority of the range was incredibly pigmented and spread evenly across the lips. Some shades had a bit of color that sat in my lip lines, which was noticeable from a normal viewing distance with a few but not all. It had a lightly tacky feel on the lips, which helped to adhere as none of the shades I have tested have feathered on me. The formula was lightly hydrating, wore for four to seven hours, and had a light, herbal, lemony scent but no discernible taste.
If you've been following Bite for awhile, you might remember the Cashmere Lip Creams from a few years ago, which were also a liquid formula. Unfortunately, I had a couple leak on me and ended up tossing all of them out of fear, so I couldn't do a true comparison, but from my memory, it was slightly thicker and less tacky while both had a more natural shine after initial application.
