Bite Beauty Tamarind & Chai Power Move Soft Matte Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches


Bite Beauty Tamarind Power Move Hydrating Soft Matte LipstickBite Beauty Tamarind Power Move Hydrating Soft Matte Lipstick ($28.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium-dark peach with warmer undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque, buildable pigmentation with a smooth, more velvety texture that was thin, somewhat clingy, and prone to separating along my lip lines and emphasizing my natural texture (despite exfoliating). It lasted for three hours and settled further into my lip lines with a tendency to cling and collect around textural imperfections in particular.

Formula Overview

$28.00/0.14 oz. – $200.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have “vibrant color payoff” with a “velvety matte finish” that “looks (& feels) good on lips.” It’s a silicone-based formula (the first ingredient is dimethicone), which is often something more “modern” matte lipstick formulas have been leaning toward. This gives them a lighter-weight, more velvety feel on–creamy enough to glide on but almost “dry” to the touch without being as clingy as traditional matte finishes.

The color payoff ranged from semi-opaque to opaque, though some shades applied better than others; the lighter shades seemed to be less pigmented, while some of the deeper shades did not apply as evenly. The mid-tone shades performed the best overall; they had fuller coverage, applied more comfortably and evenly, and tended to be more forgiving of imperfections in lip texture. In close-ups, you can see slight “balls” of product, though they weren’t something I could feel nor see in person in most instances.

The silicone-based matte formulas have a thinner consistency that can emphasize lip texture or separate along lip lines, depending on the shade and application. Most of the shades did not do this but a few did for me. The wear down was where I found that medium and darker shades tended to pull more noticeably into my lip lines, as the colors tended to wear away unevenly to some degree.

The colors lasted between three and six hours with deeper, more red-based hues lasting longer and leaving a stronger stain behind, and the lighter shades lasting the shortest amount of time. The formula felt non-drying, but it was very lightweight and comfortable to wear for the first few hours and then felt a little clingier as the product wore away.

Most of the colors are new to the range, though the ones that are “returning” are fairly similar to the colors in Amuse Bouche but have a different finish and, to some degree, depth as a result of the finish difference. The Amuse Bouche formula was rather different, as it was a creamier, denser, and cream/satin finish, so it had shine, more depth, and had more slip. If you liked the luminosity of the Amuse Bouche formula, the new formula doesn’t have that; if you always wanted a more matte version, then you might find yourself enjoying the new formula.

The formula had a vanilla scent but no discernible taste.

Bite Beauty Chai Power Move Hydrating Soft Matte LipstickBite Beauty Chai Power Move Hydrating Soft Matte Lipstick ($28.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark red with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage in a single layer, which applied smoothly and comfortably across my lips with barely any tugging. The formula was lightly creamy in the tube but thin but a little denser, as it felt velvety and like a silicone-based primer.

The color applied evenly and didn’t emphasize my natural lip texture initially, but after two to three hours, the color wore down somewhat unevenly and clung around my lip lines. It stayed on for four and a half hours and felt non-drying over time.

This formula is darker, more subdued, and slightly redder compared to Chai from Amuse Bouche. The warmer undertone was more noticeable with the Amuse Bouche version, whereas the undertone is truer in the Soft Matte formula.
