Welcome to Friday beauty friends! Today is a special day to me because it’s my youngest daughters birthday… I can’t believe my baby is now a 5 year old!! Another thing I can believe? There is only 37 more days until Christmas! Are you thinking about gifts yet, or is it way too early for you? I haven’t started looking for the kids presents yet, but I have been snooping around the beauty aisles to find good gift ideas to share with you. So, believe me when I tell you that these new Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick Duos make the perfect little stocking stuffer. There are 4 shades available, and I have 2 of them to show you today!
The tube is slender and rather tiny, but that just makes them all the more portable for travel. Each side contains .05 oz of lipstick and the duo’s sell for $14 each (with a $24 value.)
I chose the shades Jam/Opal and Pepper/Bronze. I have always wanted to try their Opal lipstick, and I was ecstatic when I saw it in this little duo. (FYI, I am now positive I will be buying a full size!) Each duo features a signature Amuse Bouche shade on one side, with a limited edition foiled top coat on the other. The only foiled shade that is not limited edition is Opal, which is also available in a full size lipstick or lipgloss form. I will say that the lipsticks felt a little loose & wiggly when I applied them. My suggestion is to use them with a light hand and don’t turn them all the way up.
Jam is a deep berry wine shade, and Opal is a sheer two-tone pearl that imparts an iridescent glowing finish. (Swatches are L to R: Jam, Opal, and layered together.)
Pepper is warm dusty rose, and Bronze is a warm toned coppery gold. When layered, Bronze lightens up Pepper a bit and makes it slightly more shimmery.
If you are looking for adorable little gifts either for yourself or a beauty lover in your life, then Bite Beauty is definitely the way to go. These cute duos are awesome for not a lot of money, but they also have bigger, more impressive gift sets available! I also kind of have my eye on The Perfect Bite Set, which is still pretty affordable. Don’t forget, these duo’s are Limited Edition, so don’t wait too long if you see something you like!
