That is how BITE Beauty describes it's latest range of lipsticks: Amouse Bouche. I was lucky enough to receive a lovely little package with six shades of this new, promising range.
This was my first experience with BITE and I had high expectations. The line is known for fantastic quality lipsticks that are enriched with natural ingredients while delivering rich pigments and stunning colours.
The Amouse Bouche line is developed and produced by hand at the BITE facility in Toronto, Canada. The formula is a perfectly blend of twelve edible oils and provides optimal hydration and instantly nourishes, smoother, softer lips. Pearl, silk, and red wine resveratrol prolong wear, enhance creaminess of texture and provide long lasting antioxidant benefits long after application. fresh pressed grapefruit, lemon, lime, tangelo mint and mandarin, extracts provide a uniquely refreshing flavour that is unmistakably Amouse Bouce.
Now that we're done with the introduction let's get to the review, shall we?
The lipsticks came in a stunning dark grey matte bullet and the they smell deliciously refreshing. The formula is rich and creamy and saturated with pigment. Most formulas applied like a dream delivering full opacity in one swipe with the luxuriously rich formula giving the color a healthy looking shine. The formula felt very comfortable on the lips, it's nice and hydrating but stays put, I experienced no bleeding or fading unless I ate or drank. The formula didn't stain the lips and I have to say that even after a day swatching and testing the colors I didn't experience any dryness or discomfort, that's how hydrating it is.
All in all, the Amouse Bouche lipsticks are pretty much amazing. The packaging is sleek, the formula is as close to perfection as you can get and the colors are simply stunning as you'll see below. The only thing I keep thinking off is getting my hands on more colors from the collection because I need them all.
