Review: Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in "Gazpacho"


Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in "Gazpacho"


While everyone is going nuts over the new Urban Decay Vice Lipsticks, I'm still obsessed over the Amuse Bouche Lipsticks from Bite Beauty. The Amuse Bouche Lipsticks retail for $26 (0.15 oz) and are available online and in-store at Sephora.

**Note, the size seen and reviewed here, is the deluxe sample size from the Spring Fling Set.


This product is Cruelty-Free, but does contain carmine, making it not Vegan. The Amuse Bouche formula is 98% Natural.


Here is the final shade in my collection (so far), "Gazpacho". Let's get in to the review!




Bite Beauty claims:


"Swipe on bold, creamy lip color with Bite Beauty’s Amuse Bouche. Created and crafted by hand, Bite’s small batch, low-heat process preserves a balanced blend of lip-quenching nutrients, vitamins, and omega oils that are essential for achieving healthy-looking lips. Made with 12 edible oils and triple milled pigments, this lipstick provides saturated lip color with weightless coverage and a citrus flavor made from fresh pressed fruit. 

A collection of high-impact lipsticks in dimensional shades that have been handcrafted to deliver extreme moisture, soft texture, and creamy wear."




Packaging


The Bite Beauty Lipsticks come packaged in a hefty dark grey tube with the Bite Beauty logo at the base of the tube.


I absolutely adore their packaging. It's sturdy, doesn't cause my lipsticks to melt even in extreme heat, and simply---it's minimalistic, nothing extravagant or crazy, which I love.



Product


"Gazpacho" is a true blue-based red. The color is similar to Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in 714, and Bite Beauty LE Matte Creme Lip Crayon in "Coulis", "Gazpacho" is bolder and has a higher shine. 


These lipsticks feature a luminous creme finish. The finish does not dry down or lose it's sheen throughout the day.


The lipsticks do have a non-artificial, sweet fruity scent.


The consistency of this shade is very creamy, soft, and applies evenly to the lips. The color is very opaque and does not drag or skip upon application. The texture of this shade is much better than the lighter shades of the Amuse Bouche line.


The lighter shades of the Amuse Bouche formula tend to be less opaque, and bits of product tend to gather up on the lips throughout the day. I did not experience any bits of product building up throughout the day, and the color remained even and opaque throughout the day.

Performance


For a product that claims to be hydrating, creamy, and provide moisture, I was worried about bleeding and transfer outside the lip line.


I experienced no bleeding outside of the lip line with this shade. Due to the creaminess of the formula, it is not transfer proof and I would not recommend eating a large meal while wearing this, unless you like the clown look. 


This shade has incredible staying power. After 8 hours, with moderate eating and drinking and no touch-ups, it still looked perfect! There was noticeably less shine, but there was no patchiness or streaking.

Overall


Gazpacho is a gorgeous true blue red that will flatter every skin tone. The formula has excellent consistency, applies beautifully to the lips, and has excellent wear time throughout the day---it does not feather, bleed, or become patchy. If you're looking for a bold right red, this is it! Just don't expect no transfer. 


NEED IT!
5.0/5
