Review: Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in "Rhubarb"

Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in "Rhubarb"

Bite Beauty's Amuse Bouche Lipstick in "Rhubarb" retail for $26 (0.15 oz), and are available online and in-store at Sephora.

The Amuse Bouche Lipsticks are 98% Natural, Cruelty-Free, but do contain carmine and beeswax, so they are not vegan.

Let's get in to the review!

Bite Beauty claims:

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

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. 


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.


"Rhubarb" is a medium mauve pinky rose. The color is very similar to Bite Beauty's Amuse Bouche in "Pepper", but more pink. This shade would flatter any skin tone.

These lipsticks offer medium to full coverage, with a luminous creme finish. The finish does not dry down or lose it's sheen throughout the day.

The formula is creamy, soft, and leaves your lips feeling moisturized and hydrated. They have a non-artificial sweet, fruity scent.

The consistency of "Rhubarb" is soft, creamy, pigmented and opaque in one pass. The color applies easily to the lips and does not appear uneven, patchy, or streaky. I highly recommend applying the deeper shades with a lip liner to ensure a crisp lip outline.

This shade wore well for about 5 hours before fading on the center of the lips with light eating.

Similar to the other light shades of the Amuse Bouche formula, I experienced pitting and small bits of lipstick gathering on my lips throughout the day and upon re-application. Be sure to exfoliate your lips prior to putting on this lipstick to lessen the chance of this happening.

The Amuse Bouche Lipsticks are not transfer resistant, they do move around on the lips but do not bleed outside of the lip line.

"Rhubarb" has an excellent formula; good staying power---I do wish it had the all-day longevity of the deeper shades---it feels comfortable and applies beautifully onto the lips, and the color is the ideal nude mauve shade for Fall! If you're looking for a moisturizing, yet highly pigmented lipstick formula, I highly recommend the Amuse Bouche line.
