Bisou Balm

Lips / Sheer Matte Lipstick

Lips / Sheer Matte Lipstick

A feel-good formula that leaves lips with a hydrating, sensual flush of color. The unique, lipstick-meets-balm hybrid glides on with a subtle blurring effect while its matte finish mimics the true texture of your lips — it’s one step to bouche mordue, “just bitten lips” in French.

Color: Bêtise

It’s that easy.

Founder's note

Bisou Balm has been a longtime dream of mine, because, well, I’m French. In France, after red lipstick, our favorite lip look is called bouche mordue or “just bitten lips.” The DIY way to do it is to apply lip balm and add a touch of lipstick – creating a subtle flush of color that looks fresh and natural. I’ve always been obsessed with capturing this effect and improving upon it – creating a formula that would mimic the true texture of your own lips. In order to do so I had to design something that would be sheer, comfortable, and hydrating but also blurring and most importantly, matte. It had to leave behind *just* the right amount of pigment but also supply a satisfying pout. Achieving all of these qualities has required so many iterations, but it’s been a true labor of love and my lips are thanking me for it.

Over delivers!!!

I never leave reviews but this balm is incredibly flattering. I bought two different colors and they blend so beautifully with my skin tone, they feel creamy, buttery, like silk on my lips. I will not purchase any other lip product from anyone else. I am thoroughly impressed.

Life Changing Lip Product

I tossed all of my other lipsticks for this one...I love it! It's so moisturizing and easy - it is like nothing else I have ever used.

Love it - subtle at its best

Gives your lips a hint of something - but hard to put your finger on. Just what I wanted!

Lasts forever!

This was a bit more than I usually spend on a lipstick/balm. I ate my breakfast on my way to work and went to reapply, when I arrived. I could not believe that it stayed on through drinking a bottle of water and eating. It was still on by lunchtime. The colors seem really universally flattering, too. Definitely worth the price given it lasts so long. I am definitely a fan, now.

Perfect

I love that it is slightly sheer and matt without drying my lips. Exactly what I was looking for.

Best bitten lip color

Love the bisou balm. I got the sucette color first and then decided to get the betise. Both colors are super flattering on anyone. The sucette is great for a bit of fuscia pop; Betise is great for a flushed bitten lip color.

Bisou Balm Violette-FR

Beautiful color and finish

I love this balm! The color Guimauve is exactly as pictured on the website and is extremely flattering on fair skin tones. This is not an easy color to find and the bisou balm knocked it out of the park. The finish is matte and very comfortable. The formula glides and doesn’t drag when applied and still has a bit of “slip” between the lips. It’s a very forgiving formula and unfussy to apply, which I appreciate.

Very nice

First things first: the texture is stunning. It feels quite soft, which is comparable with liquid matte tints), which is unlike anything I’ve experienced in a solid lipstick before. It makes for a very effortless look, too. I do wish it was a bit more moisturising. It might be alright in a slightly warmer weather, but now that it’s winter, I find that this balm doesn’t provide me with nearly enough moisture, and reach for more nourishing tinted products instead. The colour I have is Bêtise and it’s very pretty, although I bit more pink than I had anticipated. I really wish that more shades become available.As someone who likes lips to be a touch darker and moodier, I’m a little bit disappointed by the shade selection.

Hi Natalia, We are happy to hear that you love the Bisou Balm ! We always recommend moisturizing before you apply any lip product. One product we love is the Aveda lip balm! We passed this feedback about more shades to our team :)

Love it!

The color, texture, and even smell were amazing. I love that it’s buildable without getting cakey. My only issue is that I’m probably going to run out of it faster than my other lipsticks (only because I’m wearing it literally ALL the time). Seriously the softest lipstick I’ve ever worn!
