Bite Beauty Edgy Neutrals Amuse Bouche Lipsticks ($26.00 for 0.15 oz.) includes five new shades and a few repromoted shades. Per the brand, four of the five are limited edition (all but Cava). Honeycomb, Molasses, and Thistle are repromoted shades, and the swatches below are of the original launches (I did not repurchase as they were reviewed recently). I also included a swatch of the re-released Cava in Luminous Creme form.

Seriously, I must be burned out on lipsticks because nothing here intrigues me. I don’t really wear brown lipsticks and never wear really nude lipsticks. They seem to wash me out and so I tend to stay with more colorful options. I am sure these will work for many though and since Bite has such a nice formula I think they will work for many.

Cava and Thistle are calling my name! Bite Beauty is such a weakness of mine. I need to compare these shades to ones I already have. I’m thinking Cava may be similar to Sake.

Oh how I hope that when I go to try on Cava Luminous Cream, plus Thistle and Honeycomb, one of them works on me! Those are so pretty!
I love Molasses, but fear that it looks too much like my MAC Royally Riotous? I’ll check in the Swatch Gallery!

All of these, except MAYBE Thistle would look HORRENDOUS on me, and i’m sad because I love to support Canadian brands.

But I hope they are the usual amazing BITE formula for people who DO like the colours!!

I don’t think any of these colors would work on me, but I do like the finish. Hopefully this line will be successful and Bite will expand it.

Mushroom names…yes! New ones are too yellow for me as well, but may revisit Molasses. Cava and Thistle (and Sake, Valerie) are already in my bite bag. For me, the descriptions are pretty true. Cava leans lilac, Thistle is a lavender greige, and Sake is pink/mauve ( as pink as I go.) But some shades look radically different on me than on Christine. So, try ’em, Valerie. You’ll probably like them all. Dying to hear how Cava pulls on Nancy.

On one hand, I’m happy to see a twist on neutrals. On the other hand, I think most of these shades are really unappealing. I like Cava, Thistle, and Molasses. Most of the shades are too yellow-based for my taste. I wish they’d done a few more grayed shades to balance out the collection.

Oh, and Cava is listed twice. Was there supposed to be another color?

? I can’t wear nearly all of these shades or they’d make me look like a corpse or they’re too yellow-based for my complexion. They’re cool colours though. The only one I could get on with is Molasses, it’s quite an unusual caramel colour.

I’m glad to see that they brought back Cava. I remember seeing a lot of disappointment that it was discontinued, and it’s good to see a company that responds to its customer base.

As far as the new shades, those browns look like they’d be terrible on me, and yet I’m completely fascinated by them, because they also look so original.

Well… I might be able to wear Thistle, although it would probably work better on me if I layer it over something darker. I wish nude lips were not the BIG THING for spring, because they make me look sick, or worse…

If you have the coloring for it (which apparently most people do?) these look great, and several of the shades are interesting… and at least they have included two shades that lean cool, which most brands probably won’t bother to do, so I guess I shouldn’t complain so much!

I’m really digging the mushroom shades! I think I’m one of the people that could pull a few of these yellowish browns off but it’s really the price tag that has me waiting to pull the trigger. I have several Bite lipsticks that I bought and haven’t worn yet so I might hold off. Cava, Cremini, and Enoki are calling my name 🙂

So, I’m curious…what’s the difference between the Cava Amuse Bouche and the Cava Luminous Creme? I understand that they are two different formulas – I have a bunch of the Amuse Bouche lipsticks, but it’s been a while since I’ve used the Luminous Creme. I’ve got both in my cart at Sephora because I just can’t decide – the Amuse Bouche is $26.00 and the Luminous Creme is $24.00; both are 0.15 oz. For those of you who have both formulas, how would you describe the difference? And do you have a preference? Do you see a difference color-wise in the two Cavas? Maybe I’ll just have to order both!

I JUST got the Amuse Bouche Cava! Man do I LOVE IT! If I had seen Thistle on you, I would’ve gotten that as well. Probably still will, I have a thing for muted lavender-purple-grey shades. Cava is def my type of every day neutral & its soooo comfortable. I’m so glad that sheens & shiny lips are back in the game.
I don’t entirely understand the difference between the Amuse Bouche that I have & the Luminous Creme. They both look the same.
Anyway, very happy w/this formula & shade! ?
