Bite Beauty New York Amuse Bouche Lipstick is a medium-dark red with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. The pigmentation was nearly opaque in a single stroke, which applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without tugging. The texture was lightweight, slightly thinner and not quite as emollient (or as dense) compared to most Amuse Bouche shades. I felt like I could see my natural lip color come through, whereas with most Amuse Bouches, they’re creamier and thicker (not in a bad way) and seem to smooth out my lip lines. It wasn’t emphasizing but just not quite as close to perfection as other shades have been for me with respect to texture! The lipstick wore well for six hours, left a fuchsia stain behind, and was lightly moisturizing while worn.
Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick is supposed to have “bold, creamy color” with “extreme moisture, soft texture, and creamy wear.” The majority of the range is very pigmented–typically opaque with one pass–with a few shades being semi-opaque but usually buildable.
Bite Beauty Dallas Amuse Bouche Lipstick is a rich, pink-red with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage in a single layer, which adhered evenly without streaking. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy, and it glided on without tugging but seemed a little thinner and appeared more matte (relative to most shades in the formula). I didn’t find the finish to be as flattering as other Amuse Bouche shades as there was a smidgen of product that sat in my deeper lip lines, though it wasn’t noticeable from a normal viewing distance. It stayed on well for over six hours, left a stain behind, and was lightly hydrating over time.
