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)

Bittersweet Lipstick

LOVE it. So glad it's back in production. Perfect color for me. Long lasting w/o changing color in reaction to my body chemicals. Staff (Mike) is wonderful to work with......courteous, customer friendly, helpful, fun to chat with re: products and experimenting with colors. Product and company are THE BEST! Love these people.

Best lipstick ever.

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!

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

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.

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

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.

Fabulous product!

As someone who is very particular about the lipsticks I like, Elixery's Bittersweet is fabulous in all ways. It looks pretty, tastes scrumptious, goes on smoothly and stays on quite awhile. The case is pretty, the pricepoint manageable and I am so happy that I discovered this product in the middle of the Street Fair!

Gorgeous color for the fall

Beautiful long-lasting color that doesn't feel dry or taste like chemicals. In full effect, it's too rich for my complexion, so I usually dab it off a bit for that russet-kissed look, a very natural combo of wine and fruit color.

Warm and comfy

This is my ideal color. Like all Elixery lipsticks, it's comfortable to wear, and doesn't dry out your lips. This color is warm - perfect for olive skin. My favorite lipstick of all time.

Gorgeous color

I saw someone wearing this Elixiry color and ordered it online. I love it!
