I've been a long time devotee of Bite Beauty, so I was saddened (and surprised!) when they discontinued their Luminous Crème Lipstick line. My sadness was shortlived, fortunately, as they immediately introduced the new Amuse Bouche line. Side note: the ways in which everyone is butchering the pronunciation of Amuse Bouche pains me, so watch this video for a quick lesson. The Amuse Bouche lipsticks are slightly less creamy than their predecessors (which I think is a good thing), and they are hella pigmented. The range has an abundance of gorgeous shades that I want to get my hands on, but I started off with the shade Verbena.
Verbena is described as a 'Rose Terracotta' shade. To me, on my lips at least, it is more rose than terracotta. But it has a lovely warmth to it, and the shade is unique among my collection (which is a rarity!) I think Verbena is a lovely shade for the spring and summer months. When I was attempting to pick out a color, Verbena just edged out the shade Beetroot. But for the indecisive among us, Bite has just introduced the Spring Fling Set, which has mini sizes of Verbena, Beetroot, and Gazpacho, as well as a full size Lip Primer for $39. So, for about 1.5x the price of one full size Amuse Bouche, you can try out three shades! I'm going to pass on this since I already have Verbena now, but I think it's a great deal.
And in the meantime I got a 100-point perk size of Radish, a deep magenta, and ordered Honeycomb, a beige nude. Honeycomb seems to be one of the most popular shades, so I'm eager to give it a try. Particularly as I'm completely into nude lips at the moment.
All in all, I'm really pleased with both the shade and application of Verbena. It wears well throughout the day and doesn't require a lip liner. If you are on the fence about these, I would recommend using the Sephora Rouge/VIB/BI sale as an excuse to pick up one or two. Available at Sephora for $26.
Have you already tried these out? What do you think of them? Let me know below!
