Bite Beauty launches a new Power Move Soft Matte Lipstick collection
Big news, Bite Beauty fans! As of tomorrow, you’ll have a brand new favourite lipstick to stockpile. We caught up with Sarah Koch, senior vice president and general manager of Bite Beauty to learn more about the brand’s big new launch: Power Move Soft Matte Lipstick.
“We wanted to create a lipstick formula that was both clean and vegan,” says Kock. Bite super fans might not be over the discontinuation of the Amuse Bouche line, which the brand stopped making because it wasn’t vegan, but rest assured that you’ll love this new formula just as much, if not more. “Power Move is a totally new formulation, and features a blurred matte finish (thanks to a combination of tapioca pearls and fatty acid waxes, which create the soft, blurred effect on lips), rather than a creamy shine.”
And if you’re mourning the loss of your favourite Amuse Bouche lipsticks, we’ve got good news: “Power Move Lipstick comes in 20 vibrant shades,” says Koch, including reformulations of “six of our most beloved Amuse Bouche shades: Chai, Fig, Cayenne, Maple, Tannin, and Beetroot.”
The new Bite Beauty Power Move Soft Matte Lipsticks will be available on on the Sephora app as of July 11, online at Sephora.ca and bitebeauty.com on July 12, and in-store at Sephora on July 22.
