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.
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.
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.
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
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!
And there we have all of the Amuse Bouche duos! As I said, my favourite one is Pepper and Bronze! I also have a pin-able image of all the swatches. Thanks for reading! Hope you have a great day!
