I am normally not a liquid lipstick lover. I definitely don’t like matte liquid lipsticks. I received three shades of the new BITE BEAUTY Amuse Bouche Liquified Lipstick from Influenster to try. I got shades: Eclair, Flambe & Demi-Glace. Details per Sephora:
What it is:
An innovative, liquified lipstick that takes liquid lip looks to the next level, with indulgently creamy wear, precise application, and high-pigment color with a satiny finish.
What it does:
The liquid lip gets redefined with this handcrafted, moisture-rich, high-pigment formula. Bite Beauty’s most nourishing lipstick, Amuse Bouche, gets liquified, while offering rich, high-impact color and a creamy, comfortable application that glides on with unprecedented precision. Created by hand in small batches, Amuse Bouche Liquified Lipstick is made with natural monoi butter and coconut oil, which melts at the temperature of your lips to glide on for ultimate wear and a satiny finish. With 12 modern, wearable shades you’ve never seen from Bite Beauty, this collection gives everyday lip color an unexpected twist.
What else you need to know:
Founder Susanne Langmuir developed 12 modern, wearable shades. With complex and moody undertones that work perfectly with their revamped formula, this collection gives everyday lip color a startling twist. This formula is all about transformation, so each shade is aptly named after a cooking technique and the satiny, demi-glaze finish provides a sheen that makes these shades stand out.
I ended up buying Whip as well to test out a more me nude shade. The liquid lipstick is creamy, very pigmented and comfortable to wear. It’s unlike any of those drying matte liquid lipsticks. The formula has a touch of a minty feel and tingle to it. You can see peppermint oil in the ingredients. The formula feels cushy from being so creamy. The longevity is pretty good as well. Longer than I expected. These did last longer when used on top of the Line & Define Lip Primer. There was a slight almost waxy crayon scent to the formula. That was the only thing I really disliked about the product itself. These come packaged in a square matte black tube with an angled sponge tip applicator. I love the peek a boo clear end to see the actual color. They retail for $24 a piece. All the shades are creamy shades-no shimmers. That’s the only thing really lacking in this range. I would love to see some shimmering shades.
Whip is described as a Blushed Beige. It’s a creamy pink nude. Fairly neutral in tone and pretty close to my natural lip tone. It was my favorite of the bunch. I tend to gravitate towards those pinky nudes your lips but better shades. Eclair is described as a Soft Rose. It’s a creamy light neutral pink rose. Flambe is described as a Vivid Poppy. It’s a creamy very bright warm orange red. Demi-Glace is described as a Chocolate Mauve. It’s a vampy berry brown. While the other shades weren’t my cup of tea I do like Whip. I don’t like bright or dark vampy shades in a creamy style formula. I like my brights and darks in a harder stick wax formula so they last longer and don’t migrate around my lips as much. I would love to see BITE add more neutral or lighter shades as well as shimmering shades to this range. I could deal with the crayon smell if I liked the shade a lot. I wanted to really like these, I do like the formula as it’s cushy, it’s just one of those ‘the shades in the range aren’t for me’ kind of products.
