The first time I opened a Bite Beauty Maple Matte Crème lipstick ($28…
As you probably know, I am pretty obsessed with Bite Beauty. This Toronto-based lip company has taken the beauty world by storm, most recently with the release of their Amuse Bouche lipstick line. Now I have something even more exciting, six new limited edition shades just for summer, called the “Sweet & Savoury” collection.
The “Sweet” side has three shades: Lavender Jam, Taro and Thistle.
Lavender Jam is described as an electric-blue violet.
Formulation and consistency are on par with other Amuse Bouche lipsticks I have tried. Lots of pigmentation and very, very creamy without any slip.
The shade reminds me of NYX Liquid Suede in Sway. It’s cool and a very pretty purple. I think I need to add a bit more pink to my skin to make it work though.
Taro is described as amethyst with grey undertones.
This leans a bit warmer on me than most (because of the existing warmth in my lips). It is gorrrgeous.
It’s like Jeffree Star’s Scorpio only a bit warmer. Same consistency and creaminess as Lavender Jam, maybe even a bit more pigmented.
Thistle is described as a mauve-infused taupe.
This is probably the most beautiful cool-toned nude I own. Super pigmented, creamy and flattering.
For someone with fair skin, finding a nude lip is pretty tough, but I think this one WINS.
Edit: YESSS swatches finally! Sorry it took so long. I decided to show how these compare to some others I have in my collection.
Now onto the “Savoury” side of things: Kale, Squid Ink and Whiskey.
Kale is described as a deep hunter green with black.
This is gorgeous! And for a dark shade, it’s surprisingly even and not patchy at all (take note, MAC).
Not sure how I feel about it on though, it kind of washed me out. But this shade is so different and unique, I still love it.
Squid Ink is described as deep navy with black.
Just like Kale, this one goes on smooth and even. This is great for a modern goth look, and oddly enough, I have more than one navy lip shade in my collection.
Whiskey is described as a rich mahogany with red.
Now who doesn’t love a vampy burgundy lip? I love this because it has a touch of brown to it and really brings back the 90s for me.
Yep, this one’s a stunner!
Just proving I do have more than one green AND blue in my collection. And that Whisky shade is very, very close to Swiss Chocolate.
The good news is… the Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche LE Sweet & Savoury collection available now! It’s gorgeous, longlasting, comfortable on and unique.
The bad news is… this is limited edition and Thistle has already sold out and been restocked twice. Go, go, go!
