Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick Duo in Opal/Jam ($14) is one of four lipstick duos that Bite Beauty launched for Holiday 2016. This a nice introduction to Bite Beauty’s newest lipstick formula, Amuse Bouche.
Here’s a look!
The Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick Duo is a double-ended lipstick that has an Amuse Bouche Lipstick sade on one side and a limited edition foiled top coat on the other. These are a deluxe size that weight in at 0.10 oz in size and are fairly small and easy to travel with.
This pairing is a rich plum berry lipstick and a iridescent, translucent white topcoat. You can use either shade individually or you can apply the Amuse Bouche Lipstick first and add the white topcoat to add a foiled finish to your completed look.
Opal is actually a fairly sheer shade that adds white shimmer to lips when worn alone. It has a smooth yet thin formula with a stiffer texture at first application but goes much more softer as it warms up. I personally didn’t like it applied alone over my lips as it just lays down a layer of uneven sheerer shimmer to my bare lips. I don’t think you can even tell the difference very much when I’m wearing it on top of Jam in my photo below
Jam is a very pretty plum berry that has a creamy, easy to apply formula with a slightly shiny finish. As with all Bite Beauty Lipsticks it applied beautifully well with excellent opaque color that wore for five hours straight and left a stain behind after fading.
When I wore Opal over Jam I didn’t see a huge difference in my look nor the foiled finish that was advertised. Opal seems to lighten up the richer tone of the pluminess from Jam but shimmer or a foiled effect is not something I noticed. It did add a nice shine to my completed look and it sheerer out the final finish of Jam.
All in all, the Bite Amuse Bouche Lipstick Duo is a most excellent way to try out the Amuse Bouce formula. Or maybe not as these will surely get you hooked on the formula and you’ll need more shades.
