Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche – On battling a dragon

I recently had to battle a dragon in order to free my princess.

Now, not literally a dragon and not really a princess, but it sure felt similar. Or at least how I would imagine it to feel, as dragons are rare these days.

I had to face two middle aged men in order to free some Sephora goodies from customs. They were held captive because no invoice was attached, as I had won them in a giveaway.

The battle went back and forth, me trying to explain beauty blogs, Twitter and giveaways to people that barely grasped the concept of a lipstick, but in the end I was victorious.

Home with me came an adorable set of four Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche lipsticks, each containing 1.5 g of product. They went by the name Honeycomb (described as a beige nude), Fig (a nude rose), Pepper (a dusty rose) and Nori (a deep brown red and my favorite of them all).

Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche – the colors

 

The set was exclusive to Sephora, but the individual lipsticks, containing 0.15 oz, are sold on the website for no less than 26 $.

Intrigued by the claim (“A collection of high-impact lipsticks in dimensional shades that have been handcrafted to deliver extreme moisture, soft texture and creamy wear.”) I decided to put them to test immediately, and they did not disappoint.

They are as comfortable as a princess´ kiss (again, only assuming it here, I haven´t kissed many princesses so far), and while I don’t find them to be extra hydrating, they don´t dry out my winter parched lips any further.

Instead they glide on creamily, stay put for 4-5 hours when drinking and snacking and are gracious enough not to migrate into my lip lines. After a full meal of fatty foods they do need reapplying, but any excuse to pull out the cute little tube and show it off is highly appreciated. They do make for a great conversation starter as well, judging by the amount of comments I get in the office. Where I, sadly, am once again the only person crazy about makeup, but that just as a side note.

The color selection I received is one full of crowd pleasers, and while I don´t see me wearing Fig on a regular basis all the others get a huge amount of love.

Honeycomb is my trusty sidekick when it comes to dark smokey eyes, with just the right amount of nudeness (totally a word) without giving me a corpse like appearance. Pepper, despite the slightly scary name, is the perfect MLBB shade, just a tiny bit deeper and a lot more even than my natural lip color, and Nori… Pepper, despite looking scary in the tube, is the perfect color for someone like me. A statement lip, but still wearable at the office, dark, but not too dark against fair complexions, and so easy in application that you can even apply it without a mirror. In an emergency. You know, one of those dark-lip-no-mirror-emergencies. They DO happen.

Just keep in mind that these are not kiss proof, so approach your kids with caution, otherwise they might look as if bruised.

Totally worth fighting a dragon for.
