For an in-depth look at what the formula is supposed to do and how it performs generally, please check the overview below the rating. The consistency felt lightly creamy–enough that it didn’t drag or skip on the skin and was easy to get color onto a brush or fingertip–but not too slippery or wet. I did not find it dried down on my cheeks or eyes at any point, but it became more matte on the lips after a few hours of wear. The Multistick is such an interesting product because it’s pigmented but buildable, all dependent on the type of application; anything with fingertips or brushes is more buildable while applying directly from the tube yields intense coverage.
On cheeks, the color went on nicely, blended and spread well across the skin and left behind a natural sheen that didn’t move around but wasn’t transfer-proof. I had no trouble working with it on bare skin or over liquid foundation. The color lasted for over ten hours on me, which is impressive for any cheek color but more so for one that never even set!
As a lip product, it applied with rich, opaque coverage when applied directly from the tube, and it resulted in a thicker consistency that seemed to help fill in lip lines and gave a smoother finish overall. If applied with a lip brush, coverage is more buildable and felt thinner on. This shade wore well for five and a half hours on my lips and was neither drying nor hydrating. Finally, as an eye product, I had noticeable creasing after ten minutes. I just couldn’t get it to last on its own; if I set with powder, it had better longevity at four hours.
Please note, the rating is an average across performance on eyes, cheeks, and lips.
