I was back at Wellesley College over the weekend for a 2-day event, and I figured it'd be the perfect time to crack open my BITE lipstick samples I received from Influenster. I've received many samples from Influenster over the years, and I had a bit of trepidation about this one. First, I've never really been an avid lipstick fan - I feel like you have to be committed to reapplying and as I've aged and become busier with the kids it's been simpler to just throw on lip balm and go. Second, as a brown-skinned woman I was unsure that the colors would work for my skin tone. I've received lipstick samples in gift bags before and most often the colors provided are not for dark-skinned women.
Well Amuse Bouche Lipstick from BITE Beauty has officially changed my mind! Influenster didn't require a blog post for this sample, but I was so impressed I decided to do one anyway.
I received 3 lipsticks: Pepper, Gazpacho and Beetroot - I love that they're named for food - and out of the 34 possible shades that could've been included I have to hand it to Influenster for sending over these colors.
I had a springy outfit on during the day at my event so I chose Pepper first:

Don't they just pop? The best part is that they're made from 12 edible oils and are extremely creamy and smooth plus they are made with fresh pressed fruit so they have a citrus flavor. I'm sure Mr. Lovebird wouldn't mind that when I go in for a kiss!
I know these lipsticks are going to be in my
