Review: BITE Beauty Holiday Amuse Bouche Duos (with Swatches)

bite beauty holiday duo

Hello! I was recently surprised by the gift of ALL of the new holiday BITE Beauty Amuse Bouche Duos. If you’ve been a reader of my blog for a while, you’ll know that I LOVE BITE. My friend Leah got them for my birthday and I probably squealed quite loud when I opened them up. After swatching and playing around with all of them a bit, I can provide my thoughts on each on.

In my swatches I have each colour individually plus the metallic shade layered over the colour. The reason for this is that for each of the metallic shades, they are not pigmented enough to wear on their own.

1. Rose Gold/ Fig

Rose Gold

Fig is an extremely popular shade for BITE for good reason. It’s the PERFECT my lips but better or neutral shade to wear every day. The rose gold on top adds a bit of sheen and lightens the colour which is a pretty combination. The Rose Gold on it’s own is actually alright. It’s almost like a very light gloss. I personally wouldn’t wear this on it’s own, but for those who like clear gloss, this is a nice option.

2. Bronze/ Pepper

Bronze

This is probably my favourite duo. Pepper alone is another perfect every day shade. The bronze shade on top adds a bit sparkle but I found Bronze on its own a bit too patchy. You can definitely tell there is colour there, but again, I wouldn’t wear bronze on its own.

3. Gold/ Sour Cherry

Gold

Sour Cherry is a GORGEOUS red shade that will be so perfect for the holidays. Adding the gold shade on top didn’t really add much to it. Gold is the most pigmented I would say out of the metallic shades, but as with the others, I found it went on patchy.

4. Opal/ Jam

Opal

This duo definitely provided the biggest change with the metallic overlay. Jam is a very pigmented colour (a pretty berry shade). It’s so pigmented that it left a stain. The Opal swatch is with the remnants of Jam on my lips. Opal lightened up Jam quite a bit. It’s almost like you get 3 shades with this duo!

  • You lucky girl! And I was soooo tempted to get these but in the end opted for the Mauvember lipstick instead, I convinced myself to do something for a good cause…but truth is I don’t have anything like the Mauvember shade. LOL!

    I honestly can’t wait to recieve these ones in the mail. I just recently started buying Bite and I think I’m gonna end up being a returning customer if all their products are as good as their Agave collection. Really wonderful and clean blog! Thank you for the review!

    • Well thank you for the kind words! Yes, BITE is actually my favourite makeup brand. I have tons of their lipsticks! Excited for you to receive yours!
