Continuing with my reviews on the new Bite Amuse Bouche lipsticks by Bite Beauty, this review will be on the highly requested shade “Pepper.”
What it is: A collection of high-impact lipsticks in dimensional shades that have been handcrafted to deliver extreme moisture, soft texture, and creamy wear.
What it does: Swipe on bold, creamy lip color with Bite Beauty’s Amuse Bouche. Created and crafted by hand, Bite’s small batch, low-heat process preserves a balanced blend of lip-quenching nutrients, vitamins, and omega oils that are essential for achieving healthy-looking lips. Made with 12 edible oils and triple milled pigments, this lipstick provides saturated lip color with weightless coverage and a citrus flavor made from fresh pressed fruit. It is formulated without parabens, sulfates, phthalates.

My Experience with Bite Beauty Pepper Amuse Bouche Lipstick:
Packaging: Bite Beauty has a very simple yet classy packaging for its lipsticks. The tube has a rubberized velvety feeling texture with a curved cap. The cap closes securely.
Shade: The shade “Pepper” is described as a dusty rose. It is that perfect everyday mauve shade with a hint of plum-purple undertone. In comparison, the shade “Chai” is much more of a rosy brown though they both could work as MLBB shades depending on your skin tone. This shade can be your loyal companion for everyday office use. It is a very muted color, it does not scream for attention, but it gives the right amount of life to your face. I really like this shade.
Texture and feel on lips: These Bite Beauty lipsticks apply so smoothly on the lips without any tug or skip. They are super creamy but they do not feel heavy on the lips at all. They are much thinner and lightweight feeling than their former versions (Luminous cream lipsticks), which have now been discontinued. I find them to be mildly hydrating on my lips. They have almost velvety smooth feeling on my lips and they seem to smooth out the texture of my lips.
They are not so intensely creamy and moisturizing (in comparison to their former version), but they do sit comfortably on my lips. I don’t feel like they settle into fine lines or emphasize dry patches. Since they are not so super duper creamy, I have had no problems with these lipsticks bleeding on me which was the issue I faced particularly with the darker shades from the former luminous cream lipstick formula.
Pigmentation: I am truly impressed with the pigmentation of these lipsticks. They deliver absolute 100% opaque pigmentation in one swipe. The darker shades in particular pack a punch. This quality will make these lipsticks loved by beauties with pigmented lips who crave full coverage from their lipsticks.
Finish: During the initial couple hours of wear, the finish is creamy sheen. The finish falls somewhere between creamy and satin. It has the right amount of sheen without being glossy. The sheen does settle down after a few hours into wear.
Staying Power: Being quite creamy, these lipsticks do transfer. The staying power is a good 5-6 hours with lights snacks and drinks. You will need to reapply after a full meal. This particular shade does not leave a strong stain, but the deeper shades do. I love the fact that Bite lipsticks have all-natural food grade ingredients so even if I do ingest them along with my meal I don’t feel like I am ingesting harmful chemicals.
Fragrance: It has an amazing lemony citrusy scent. I am all about the citrusy fragrances hence I adore the scent on this. It’s not too overwhelming and you can only get a whiff of it during application, it does not linger. This lipstick has a mild sweet taste.
Overall, I really enjoy these Bite lipsticks. They comes in an array of shades with a list of food-grade natural ingredients, amazing pigmentation, comfortable formula and finish makes this an ideal everyday lipstick for most lipstick lovers. Bite Beauty got this right, I will recommend this lipstick.
