Bite Beauty: 4-Piece Mini Amuse Bouche Lipstick Set Review

The 2019 holiday season is upon us! Every brand is releasing sets left, right and centre. I  can’t even begin to keep up with all the releases. With that said, there’s one holiday set I purchase every year – The 4-Piece Mini lipstick set from Bite Beauty. Every year Bite puts out an adorable kit filled with four wearable shades that are holiday perfection. Let’s see what’s inside the 2019 version of this Christmas staple. 


Bite Beauty describes this set as “Satisfy your color cravings this holiday season: Treat yourself to super pigmented, creamy color with Amuse Bouche Lipstick packed with powerful superfoods. A mini, four-piece set of BITE Beauty’s Amuse Bouche Supercharged Lipstick inspired by crave-worthy holiday treats”. 

Shades

Ruby Bonbon -rosy pink. This shade is gorgeous. Ruby Bonbon is my favourite colour in this set. The shade is pink but not too bright with a slight pearlized quality. It’s the perfect muted rosy shade. Ruby Bobon applied easily, only one swipe needed for solid pigmentation. The formula is smooth and creamy. There was minimal transfer when eating and drinking. This shade wore well for 4-5 hours. 

Cocoa Bite – warm nude. This lipstick is super creamy. Cocoa Bite melted into my lips like a dream. My lips have been dry lately and this formula glides on like nobodies business. The shade itself is a typical nude, it’s pretty but I own similar shades. The formula on the other hand is nothing typical. This lipstick is Christmas magic that wears for 5 hours. 

Cherry Truffle – spiced red. This is a Christmas red. I don’t wear many reds but this one is gorgeous. The pigmentation on this lipstick is fantastic. Though, the formula was the most difficult to apply out of the four in this set. Cherry Truffle wasn’t quite as smooth as the other three shades. This shade didn’t set into the lines of my lips (win). Considering this is a dark lipstick there was very minimal transfer, I was very impressed. 

Good Jujube pink nude. Good Jujube is a slightly darker version of Cocoa Bite. Like the other three shades in this palette Good Jujube is creamy and ultra smooth in texture. The new Amues Bouche formula is nearly perfect. I keep repeating myself but the formula is consistent across all four shades. I got 5 hours of wear from Good JuJube. 

The formula is great throughout all four shades. There’s no misses here! Each mini Amuse Bouche Supercharged Lipstick contains 1.5g/0.05 oz of product. 


Packaging

As I previously mentioned, Bite Beauty releases a four shade mini lipstick kit every year for the holidays. Usually, the set is packaged in a small, red, reusable tin container. This year Bite switched it up and simply packaged the lipsticks in a small cardboard box. The little box is pretty and compact but I must say I miss the little tin. I could use the tin again once the lipsticks were gone. 

I’m very happy to see Bite chose to coordinate the bullet packaging and lipstick shade. Their old matte grey packaging was indistinguishable from shade to shade. It was impossible to know which shade was which without opening the product (not a huge problem but it annoyed me). Colouring the bullets to match the shade is so much easier and prettier. I’m really hoping when Bite releases the new Amuse Bouche line that all of the lipsticks will have outer packaging matching the lipstick in the tube. 

Thoughts 

I purchase this set every year because I love the quality of Bite Beauty’s lipsticks. I didn’t think the formula could be improved but these seem different. All four shades felt hydrating and comfortable to wear over time. My lips never dried out or cracked wearing these shades. Bite is reformulating their line of Amuse Bouche lipstick but I don’t think these are the new formula. 

I’m a basic lipstick kind of girl. I don’t wear crazy bold colours so I’m very pleased with a set that includes entirely wearable shades. I can easily see myself finishing all four shades (something I’ve never done). The lipsticks are tiny but combined you end up with about a full-size lipstick and a half worth of product. 

This set was originally priced at $28.00 CAD. I noticed it was recently discounted to only $14.00 CAD on Sephora’s website. This is a great holiday set for any makeup lover and scoring it for only $14.00 is a steal. Getting to test out four high quality shades at regular prices is a bargain but 50% off is amazing! I’m tempted to buy a second set at that price. 

Bite Beauty is a a Canadian company so I like to support them. They’ve become massive because of their fantastic, cruelty free products. I look forward to their holiday set every year. I appreciate Bite Beauty doesn’t go over the top or crazy with holiday releases. I can count on a smart, budget friendly holiday set year after year. Way to go Bite Beauty!

Until Next Time,

Kayla
