She was too young, he was too young, so it didn't last forever.

But when they went their separate ways, each carried a picture of the other, squirreled away in their wallets. And every now and then, at exactly the same moment, they both look at these pictures and sigh, remembering cool autumn breezes, and the warmth and wonder of young love.

Bittersweet memories can be most delightful.

This is one of our more popular shades - and it's finally back! Rich, warm autumn coral lights up your face and really makes blue and green eyes pop. We often hear from the cool-toned ladies "Oh no - I could never wear an orange lipstick" and then they try Bittersweet. Boom. This shade is the bomb - casual enough for daily wear, yet polished enough for a night on the town. And those eyes. Gorgeous. We've had trouble keeping this one in stock, so get her while she's available! Satin finish, with our delicious signature vanilla flavor.

COLOR: Bittersweet color (autumn/russet)

    I fell in love with this lipsick four years ago. The color stays on for hours and feels very smooth. I often get compliments on the color. I appreciate the work which goes into this product.

    I have been ordering these lipsticks for several years and find them to be long lasting and do not dry out my lips.

    Bittersweet lipstick

    Posted by Jennifer on February 7th, 2018

    I love the creaminess of your lipsticks. The hard part is the color. I chose this one thinking it was more of a rosy/red/blush color. When you apply it, it's more orange. Not was I was looking for.

    I have been a customer of this product for over four years. I do not use any other brand of lipstick.

    Best lipstick ever.

    Posted by Tali on June 18th, 2016

    I discovered Elixery over two years ago at No Coast and I haven't looked back. I own 10 (give or take) of their lipsticks and use every single one. Bittersweet was my first purchase and it is classic, warm and rusty. Bittersweet, Karma and #makeunder are my daily go-tos so I highly recommend!

    LOVE IT!

    I LOVE lipstick, but I hate lipstick on my teeth. I usually don't take the time in the morning to put on a lip-liner...I want a one step lipstick that will stay on my lips. The best product I have found so far is a Revlon lipstain, but I have wanted to try something natural. THIS IS THE BEST LIPSTICK EVER!!!! Soooo creamy, lips do not feel dry. Stays put on lips, lasts all morning. I have to reapply after lunch, but no big deal. YOU WILL NOT BE SORRY YOU TRIED THIS!

    Finally! A lipstick I love

    Posted by KK September 28,2015 on August 29th, 2015

    I purchased this lipstick on a whim while shopping in Minneapolis. I'm a lipstick junkie so I know my lipsticks. I LOVE this product. It's moisturizing, the color (Bittersweet) is perfect so please don't discontinue it! Have already ordered more.

    Me, but better

    If I had been more adroitly designed, Bittersweet would have been the color of my lips. It's a great neutral that goes with just about anything, doesn't look harsh and is almost a no-makeup makeup look, except that the definition it gives (without a lip brush) is more polished than that. I just received Tempest because the description of that shade sounded like the mauve-y version of Bittersweet. If you've ever wanted in on the trend for orange lipstick but didn't want it to look clownish or harsh, Bittersweet is the color to try. Also, I usually use lip butter as a base because most lipsticks are a little dry to apply directly. Not this one. No primer needed.

    Smooth finish, lasts all day

    Posted by Kelly on March 3rd, 2015

    I used to wear only the Dessa color by Elixery, but am completely smitten with this shade. Wears smooth, no cracks or creases on the lips and never runs past the lip line.
