Review | Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in "Pepper"

Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in "Pepper"

The Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipsticks are the newest addition to the Bite Beauty lineup. These lipsticks retail for $26 (0.15 oz) and are available exclusively in-store and online at Sephora

After trying on just about every shade of the Amuse Bouche line, I decided on the shade, "Pepper". These lipsticks are Cruelty-Free and 98% Natural.

Let's get in to the review!

Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipsticks

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."


The Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipsticks are packaged in a beautiful dark grey bullet. Perfect for throwing in your purse or storage. I have had no problems with the packaging.

The lipsticks have a distinct---but pleasant---sweet fruity scent to them, almost like Starbursts. The scent does not linger on the lips.


"Pepper" is a medium warm toned rose nude. It is similar to Wet n Wild "In the Flesh", but darker and more brown. This color would best suit those with fair to medium skin tones. 

The lipstick provides medium to full coverage with a natural shine, creme finish. The finish is similar to that of the bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipsticks. The formula is creamy, soft, and leaves your lips feeling moisturized and hydrated. 

The color applies easily to the lips and does not appear uneven or patchy. 

However, the texture is not ideal. You can see from the swatch photos that it leaves small bits of product around the center and outer lines of the lines and it doesn't look smooth.

The color wears well for about 4 and a half hours, and starts to fade around the center of the lips after 5 hours. It does not settle into fine lines or crack throughout the day.

While initially the formula give the lips a healthy appearance, the color bunches up into small bits throughout the day and looks, frankly---gross.

The color reapplies beautifully and wears well after moderate eating and drinking.

This shade is a very universally flattering shade for those with light to medium skin tones. This is definitely a shade I can wear with almost any look. It applies nicely to the lips, feels moisturizing, and has decent staying power throughout the day. However, I do wish the texture was better. While they are not vegan, and do contain synthetic dyes, they are 98% naturally derived.
