|Wearing Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche lipstick in the sage "Gazpacho'|
I am HUGE fan of red lipsticks. I think women with every skin tone and complexion can rock the bold red lips. I wear red lipstick all through the year and can not get enough of red lipsticks. I am always on a hunt for the perfect Red and so when I got a chance to try out the Bite Beauty's new line of lipsticks called The Amuse Bouche, I immediately took the opportunity. I received three shades - 'Gazpacho', 'Pepper' and 'Beetroot'.
|Color Swatches from Left - Gazpacho, Beetroot, Pepper|
So here is my verdict-
Packaging: The lipsticks come in very sleek matte tubes that are not very conspicuous, but still look unique. Overall nice packaging, nothing special to write home about.
Smell : OMG! That was the first reaction when I opened the tube! These lipsticks smell HEAVENLY! They have fresh pressed citrus smell and the product description says these are made with 12 edible oils and fresh pressed fruits. I five it 5 stars for the way they smell!
Color: These are high pigmented lipsticks, As you can see in the swatch above, the shade is pretty saturated and evenly pigmented. I personally love the non-sheer look of dark lispticks so for me it works out really well.
Texture: These are some really creamy lipsticks. I really love the way they glide on the lips and go on evenly and without smudge on the lip line. VERY soft and supple texture and feel very light on the lips. Not sticky at all, even though they have a very light sheen in them! 5 stars again!
Longevity of wear: These lipsticks stay put for a long long time. I usually put one coat of my lipsticks and press a tissue paper between my lips for few seconds and then apply second coat. I used same technique to apply Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche lipsticks and they stayed on for a LONG time. Even after eating, drinking, and almost 7 hour wear on the weekend, when I was ready to my make up off, I could see that lipstick was still there. The shade became little lighter, but it was pretty even and smooth. I give them high points for all day wear!
Price: These are available on Sephora for $26. So I'd say they are little bit pricier than your every day drugstore lipstick brands but after using them almost 2 weeks I can say they are TOTALLY worth the price!
Overall Verdict - Two thumbs up and 5 stars! Totally recommend these lipsticks. They come in 34 shades and the three I have used so far are making me want to stock up on more colors!
