You’d think a product this effortless to use would be simple to make. On the contrary, it was such a pain in my butt! Bisou Balm was my beautiful problem child that required lots of special attention! Its qualities are contradictory, you see, as it had to be matte, but also sheer, comfortable, and easy to apply—with just the right amount of pigment. But whatever it took, I had to make it happen because this was the product I’d been dreaming of for so many years! It’s my ideal bouche mordue (just bitten lips) look to wear to work and to use on set. It’s become an essential wardrobe staple for me and all my girlfriends (who will be happy to stop carrying around lab samples and get ahold of the real thing!!).

love this lipstick!! i find it a bit dry (it looks just fine, just feels dry) but putting on some chapstick before applying this takes care of that. the review that convinced me to buy this described it as “the perfect amount of color with the perfect lack of sheen” and this totally lives up to that. looks very natural, great color. i usually use one or two swipes, but layering the color further works great too!
I really love the color of this lippy, it's the ideal "my lips but better" and can be worn layered or more subtly. For me, needing to reapply isn't an issue, as it doesn't need a mirror for application. The texture is interesting, I'd describe it as a little powdery, so maybe unexpected for some, but the wearability is awesome.
Love. Love. Love.
Exactly what I was looking for in a lip balm. I was so excited I shared my Insta find with my bestie who informed me that she already bought another lipstick and loved just as much. Def trying other products!
Purchased this in Betise. I have pale skin with very cool undertones. It’s difficult to find any lip color that looks natural. This color makes me look like I have naturally pink/red lips. Sooooo pretty!!
The lipstick is dry and pulls on my lips. The color is just a bit too orange for my light, cool tone skin. Not a fan.
If you are looking for the perfect everyday lipstick, this is it! Goes on so easily, looks so natural yet vibrant, blurring, and is super buildable. Unlike any other lipstick I have every tried. I get compliments and questions almost every time I wear it.
Perfect easy French girl lip!
It goes on so simply in a buildable formula. Gives exactly what it promises -- an easy, on-the-go French girl pout. Highly recommend!
In love with Bisou but bummed
I absolutely love this balm, the color is absolute perfection and it feels amazing. However the balm stick broke off after I’ve had it for a few weeks. I’ve used it sparingly so I’m unsure why it broke, but I’ll still use it if I can. Can’t wait to try other colors.
Nice but bleeds
I like the color, and how it gives my lips a "****** on a red lollipop" look rather than a full-on lipstick. It is more of a subtle stain. Which I love. However, after some time, it bleeds. So I have to put lip balm over it to smooth it out. Maybe my lips are dry and maybe you won't have that problem, but I would say, apart from that, I do like it.
Great color! Its exactly what I imagined a stained lip to be but its very drying
My favorite hint of tint. This product is perfect for a hint of color on the lip. I love that it is cruelty free and is my new favorite.
Perfect color, but so dry for a « balm ».
Perfect color and buildable coverage
Love!! Perfect color for everyday or dressing up. Consistency is smooth and color long lasting.
This has just the right amount of color with a unique texture somewhere between matte and glossy. I love it!
I love the color of the lipstick which is subtle on your lips. What I love more is the way it feels- very hydrating! The only drawback is the container always feels like it will break and is hard to make the lipstick go up and down.
Lovely Balmy Lippie
Love that it’s matte but hydrating at the same time. Colour of the lips is toned down, which is perfect for stronger eye makeup. Perfect make up no make up for the lips.
