Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Chai Review 0.05oz — $8.67 value (full size $26)

sephora bite beauty amuse bouche lipstick see more at icangwp gift with purchase blog

A collection of high-impact lipsticks in dimensional shades that have been handcrafted to deliver extreme moisture, soft texture, and creamy wear.

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.

IcanGWP Review: Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick is so buttery smooth. It glides on like a dream. This ultra pigmented lipstick looks so pretty, juicy, satiny and velvety. Bite beauty lip products have a signature light citrus scent that is so refreshing and feels so natural. The beautiful mauve brown shade, Chai, is made to love. It’s one of those shades and formulas that I like to draw it beyond my lip line a bit, make it fuller and make a different look. It does transfer a bit and needs some touching up within a few hours for me. This is a solid performer with good ingredients, a lipstick to own if you are into green beauty.

Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil**, Glyceryl Rosinate*, Cera Alba (Beeswax)**, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil**, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter**, Triisostearyl Citrate*, Argania Spinosa (Argan) Kernel Oil**, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax*, Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil*, Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Oil**, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax**, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Cera (Wax)*, Polymethyl Methacrylate, Hydrogenated Castor Oil*, Flavor (Aroma), Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Wax*, Acacia Decurrens Flower Wax*, Polyglyceryin-3*, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil**, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Extract**, Silk Powder*, Pearl Powder*, Glyceryl Oleate*, Olea Europaea (Olive) Oil Unsaponifiables*, Trans-Resveratrol*, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil**, Almond (Prunus Dulcis) Oil**, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil**, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil**, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil**, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil**, Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Seed Oil**, Siraitia Grosvenorii (Monk Fruit) Extract*. +/- May Contain: Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891)*, Iron Oxides (Ci 77491, Ci 77492, Ci 77499)*, Carmine (Ci 75470)*, Blue 1 Lake (Ci 42090), Yellow 5 Lake (Ci 19140), Yellow 6 Lake (Ci 15985), Red 40 Lake (Ci 16035), Red 6 Lake (Ci 15850), Red 7 Lake (Ci 15850), Red 27 Lake (Ci 45410), Red 28 Lake (Ci 45410), Red 30 Lake (Ci 73360), Red 33 Lake (Ci 17200), Manganese Violet (Ci 77742)*.

Bite Beauty Matte Crème Lip Crayon Glacé Review 0.031oz — $14.88 value (full size $24 – $26)

sephora bite beauty matte creme lip crayon see more at icangwp gift with purchase blog

A collection of lip crayons in timeless matte shades that provide superior hydration.

Bite Beauty’s latest breakthrough formula boasts a collection of beautiful nudes, striking reds, and deep burgundies with a matte yet moist texture. The secret is the moisture-locking power of orange peel wax along with the antioxidant properties of resveratrol. Each gorgeous shade is water-resistant and long wearing.

IcanGWP Review: This particular warm and elegant shade and finish, Bite Beauty Lip Crayon in Glacé, is my favorite in this kit. It’s definitely a good gift for the beginner and I’ll explain why. It’s not as pigmented as the Amuse Bouche Lipstick but everything else matches everyday lifestyle. Sephora explains this shade as matte finish dusty mauve. The coral-pink-nude shade is warm and feels luxurious. It’s a great day-to-day shade that will fit in with any makeup, hair and outfit easily. For the party after work, add a festive lip topper to perfection.

The finish is exactly my lips with a new color – almost matte but a little bit of moisture. It’s so darn natural, like I didn’t apply any lip product. The wear time is longer than Amuse Bouche and you’ll have no problem not touching it up. It’s fading very naturally as well. The formula is medium-to-high moisturizing. As always, Bite Beauty products contain no nasty ingredients. People really recommend Cognac for the brown shade.

Ingredients: Resveratrol (5mg): Acts as an antioxidant. Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil**, Glyceryl Rosinate*, Cera Alba (Beeswax)**, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil**, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter**, Triisostearyl Citrate*, Argania Spinosa (Argan) Kernel Oil**, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax*, Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil*, Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Oil**, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax**, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Cera (Wax)*, Polymethyl Methacrylate, Hydrogenated Castor Oil*, Flavor (Aroma), Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Wax*, Acacia Decurrens Flower Wax*, Polyglyceryin-3*, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil**, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Extract**, Silk Powder*, Pearl Powder*, Glyceryl Oleate*, Olea Europaea (Olive) Oil Unsaponifiables*, Trans-Resveratrol*, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil**, Almond (Prunus Dulcis) Oil**, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil**, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil**, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil**, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil**, Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Seed Oil**, Siraitia Grosvenorii (Monk Fruit) Extract*. +/- May Contain: Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891)*, Iron Oxides (Ci 77491, Ci 77492, Ci 77499)*, Carmine (Ci 75470)*, Blue 1 Lake (Ci 42090), Yellow 5 Lake (Ci 19140), Yellow 6 Lake (Ci 15985), Red 40 Lake (Ci 16035), Red 6 Lake (Ci 15850), Red 7 Lake (Ci 15850), Red 27 Lake (Ci 45410), Red 28 Lake (Ci 45410), Red 30 Lake (Ci 73360), Red 33 Lake (Ci 17200), Manganese Violet (Ci 77742)*.

Bite Beauty Agave Sugar Lip Scrub Review ($1.25 value)

sephora bite beauty agave sugar lip scrub see more at icangwp gift with purchase blog

A gentle lip scrub that cleanses, exfoliates, and conditions lips with raw brown sugar, pineapple enzymes and exotic oils, leaving them beautifully smooth and soft.

An essential part of any nighttime ritual, the Agave Sugar Lip Scrub is a triple-action, foaming lip scrub that’s infused with exotic oils, brown sugar, and pineapple enzymes. It cleanses and gently exfoliates, while the agave syrup moisturizes and conditions your lips.

Suggested Usage:
-Massage agave sugar lip scrub over the lips and add water to create a milky foam to wash away any impurities or dry patches.
-Allow the oils to soak into the skin overnight for soft, hydrated lips.

IcanGWP Review: The caramel lip scrub looks delicious, is so natural and smells wonderful. The sugar beads are fine but not too small that make it feel too abrasive. The taste is a big punch of agave — sweet and almost like candy. I find the scrub removed all rough skin and helped with chapped lips tremendously in the winter months. I followed the instruction and the milky foam was fun. The result was incredible soft and healthy lips.

Ingredients: 15 Mg Trans-Resveratrol from de Vitis Vinifera and Polygonum Cuspidatum, Sucrose*, Squalane*, Glycerin**, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil*, Polyglyceryl-5 Oleate*, Flavor, Vanilla Planifolia (Vanilla) Fruit Extract*, Leuconostoc/Sorbus Aucuparia Fruit Ferment Filtrate*, Water*, Bromelain*, Vanilla Tahitensis (Vanilla) Fruit Extract*, Maltodextrin*, Agave Tequilana (Blue Agave) Nectar**, Trans-Resveratrol*, Tocopherol*, Caramel*, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Skin Extract**, Sodium Benzoate, Sodium Metabisulfite.

Bite Beauty Agave Lip Balm Review ($2.14 value)

sephora bite beauty agave lip balm see more at icangwp gift with purchase blog

A perfect soothing balm for ultimate hydration and recovery that quickly repairs and restores lips.

A must have for on-the-go lip care, Agave Lip Balm is the perfect travel essential. Agave Lip Balm is a nourishing formula made from agave and rare Madagascan vanilla CO2 extract. Lips stay hydrated and protected all day long, making your lips look natural on their own. It also acts as a primer for any color application.

IcanGWP Review: Bite Beauty Agave Lip Balm is formulated like no others. If your lips aren’t a big fan of petroleum or silicone, but rather prefers very moisturizing, hydrating, runny and waterly formula like mine, you may find Bite Lip Balm a surprisingly new buddy for your lips!

Its texture is soooo thick. I had to rub it several times and warm the ultra firm balm before application. It’s a little bit difficult to glide this product on your lip with a finger.  I like the finish very much. It doesn’t add obvious shine like most lip balms. My lips feel like they have a thin layer of balm to protect it and it’s invincible. I find it doesn’t provide a heavy load of hydrating formula. Fine lines are filled so that it’s great as a 2-in-1 lip balm and primer. This product sets a record by staying put 9 to 5 – really impressive. If you are looking for a green lip balm that’s long lasting, this is a must try item this year.

Ingredients: 5 Mg Trans-resveratrol from de Vitis Vinifera and Polygonum Cuspidatum, Lanolin* (Pharma Grade), Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter**, Hydrogenated Soybean Oil*, Glyceryl Rosinate*, Cera Alba (Beeswax)**, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil**, Stearyl Alcohol*, Hydrated Silica*, Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Sterols*, Copernica Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax**, Heptyl Undecylenate*, Crambe Abyssinica Seed Oil*, Mica*, Kaolin*, Olea Europaea (Olive) Oil Unsaponifiables*, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Cera (Wax)*, Hydrogenated Cottonseed Oil*, Flavor (Aroma), Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Wax*, Glycerin**, Tocopherol*, Sorbitan Stearate*, Vanilla Tahitensis (Vanilla) Fruit Extract*, Agave Tequilana (Blue Agave) Nectar**, Vanilla Planifolia (Vanilla) Fruit Extract*, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil**, Acacia Decurrens Wax*, Polyglycerin-3*, Trans-Resveratrol*, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Extract**.

Here’s the swatches of Amuse Bouche lipstick and Lip crayon in the Sephora Birthday Gift 2018 Bite Beauty Kit!

It’s gorgeous!

Quick Take:

Bite Beauty Lip Products live up its name. I adore this Sephora exclusive brand and grabbed this set with excitement to try out their well-thought and well-made products. They really know how to make outstanding lip products. I’m happy with my choice. The value of the Sephora Birthday Gift Bite Beauty 2018 is $26.94.

In terms of value, Sephora’s birthday gift Glamglow is surpassed by this one. Also, the online-only Bumble & Bumble is available if you want to try their famous line.
