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. Blondie worked best as a blush, where it blended out nicely and lasted well, but it was more problematic as a lip and eye color, where it pulled into lines and had a shorter wear time.

As a cream blush, it delivered buildable, blendable color that was easy to work with and spread across the skin. I could apply with fingertips or brushes, and both types of tools worked well. It lasted for just over eight and a half hours on me as a blush. I do expect that this will be more suitable for fairer complexions as it just barely shows up on my skin tone once I blend it out, unless you’re of light-medium to medium complexion and want something subtle and warming.

As a lipstick, this was one of the more unflattering shades applied to the lips, even though the texture did not feel that different from other shades, as it looked drier, emphasized lip lines, and sunk into those same lip lines on me. I felt like the texture felt a bit drier, more powdery, on my lips, and the wear was shorter (not entirely unexpected, as it is one of the lighter shades) at four hours. The formula was neither drying nor hydrating over time.

As a cream eyeshadow, it actually looked similar on the eye as it did on lips: it pulled into my fine lines and creases with ease and looked somewhat dry applied. The color itself blends in with my natural skin tone, so the creasing wasn’t as noticeable from a normal viewing distance, but it was definitely there within five minutes of application.

Please note, the rating is an average across performance on eyes, cheeks, and lips.

Formula Overview

Bite Beauty MultistickBite Beauty Multistick ($24.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a cream formula that can be worn on eyes, lips, and face, and it is supposed to be “blendable, breathable, and buildable” with a “soft focus finish.” In general, it has a more cream-like feel than powder-like, even after it “dries.” The consistency is medium in thickness–more noticeably thick when used on the lips, as it is quite dense–and is quite blendable across the majority of shades. They don’t have a true cream-to-powder dry down, as the Bite formula does not dry down completely. I did notice that the exposed portion of the bullet itself (like the flat top) gets drier and firmer after each use, as if it dries out a bit on the exterior, but a light swipe on the skin reveals a much creamier interior. When I’ve used it directly from the tube on the lips, I can sense that “35% powder” part of the formula as well. I really liked the formula as a cream blush, as it was blendable, buildable, and long-wearing. As a lip product, it was decent to good (performance depended a lot on the shade), and as an eye product, it was a total miss for me due to poor wear.

As an eyeshadow: The texture was blendable around the edges, while the thicker consistency and buildable coverage enabled me to get better coverage that didn’t just sheer out immediately. The issue I had with wearing the formula on my eyes was that I could not get the formula to wear well on eyes, as they continuously settled into creases within minutes of applying; I would smooth the color back out after the initial creasing, but it would just happen again after another five to ten minutes. I tried using the formula over different primers (Urban Decay Primer Potion, Too Faced Shadow Insurance, MAC 24-Hour Prep + Prime Eye) as well as dusting with translucent powder, but the wear was only improved to a couple of hours of wear before creasing occurred (instead of minutes).

As a cheek color: The formula has performed the best as a cream blush (or bronzer/contour). The were very much as described–blendable and buildable–and could be worn as true-to-tube color if desired, but it was easy to diffuse and blend out the blush on the cheeks. I liked to use a synthetic blush brush to swirl on the color and then used my fingertips to blend out the edges. While the formula didn’t dry down completely, it yielded a natural sheen that was glowy in a subdued way (and without shimmer), and it didn’t seem to result in wear issues, as the shades I have tested have all lasted between nine and ten hours as a cheek color. If I patted lightly at the blush on my skin, there would be immediate transfer onto my fingertip and a missing splotch of color on my skin. It set well with translucent powder but does lose its sheen (no transfer if I set it).

As a lip color: I was surprised to find that the formula wore about as well as an average lipstick on the lips, and the formula wasn’t drying at all. If you apply it directly from the tube like a regular lipstick, it’s very, very pigmented and totally opaque, but if you apply with fingertips or use a lip brush, it is more buildable. You can also apply directly from the tube to the center of lips and then use a fingertip/brush to blend and diffuse to the rest of the lips for sheerer coverage. It is most comfortable and flattering worn at a higher opacity, as the denser texture seems to help lips look smoother without emphasizing lip lines. Some of the lighter shades settled into lip lines while worn (after an hour or two), while others didn’t have such issues. Some shades were also more prone to fading more noticeably from the center of lips. What I was most impressed by was the fact that they did not feel dry or clingy on the lips, and the formula itself wasn’t drying at all, even after six hours of wear. Bite’s Amuse Bouche formula is a far superior lipstick formula, but these were absolutely wearable as a lipstick. It took as long as four hours before the color would start to look more matte, but it never felt truly powdery or dry.

This color is my ideal shade for a blush/contor.

I think the color would look good on the lips and eyes but I am not convinced the formula would work for me.

I like the shade on you and that means it look good on me. I change my hair color to a dark copper but will be going lighter soon.

I feel like it is a formula worth trying (if it appeals to someone), but it’s one that I’d try just one shade first to see how well it wore!

NC37-40, I do not think this could do anything for me on lips, eyes or even cheeks. Yikes, that’s light!
Perhaps it’s useful on very light or fair warm-toned peeps as a bronzer? Idk?

I tried this on in store and it was the most beautiful blush and eye shade, but looked SO bad on the lips (too grey and pale). I’m NC25 warm medium olive skin with more pigmented lips. If it was as flattering of a lip color on me as it was on Christine, I would’ve bought it, but instead I went for Brioche. πŸ™‚

It’s funny because I’m also NC25 warm skin tone and I have Brioche and Blondie! πŸ™‚ I love Brioche as a very warm eye/lip/and cheek color. I LOVE Blondie as a very natural blush/bronzer (kinda works as both) and it’s very natural on the eyes. Blondie is too pale for my lips/complexion too.
