Bite Beauty Mascarpone Multistick ($24.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a medium, rosy plum with warm undertones and a satin finish. Too Faced Peach Berry (P, $30.00) is cooler (90% similar). Bite Beauty Brioche (P, $24.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Bite Beauty Biscotti (P, $24.00) is cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

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.

FORMULA OVERVIEW | Bite 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.

I’ve been really loving the latest releases from Bite Beauty and I’m slowly warming up to this. I think it’s alittle different than a lot of the formula’s on the market and the price isn’t too exorbitant! Adding this to my wishlist for the next VIB sale!

Wow! Great neutral color! This might be one for the toolbox. There you go, Christine — you successfully negated my fear of cream products. Thanks … I think. 🙂 Can’t decide if I like this or Biscotti better as a neutral, blush-layering base. I think I definitely like Biscotti better on the lips, thoguh. Hmmmmm.

This makes a fabulous lipstick and blush! Out of the BB multisticks I have seen so far, this might be my least favorite eyeshadow, (though all of them do have that creasing problem anyway).

Wow, what a beautiful color! This will make me look like I’ve been living on kale and living at the gym. It reminds me of Shiseido Rose Crush

Mascarpone is a super pretty one! I love it used for a blush and lipstick. But if you’re getting 4 hours with setting powder, on me it would likely ball up and crease inside of 2-3 hours. So I don’t see myself using these as anything but lip & cheek color.

This is just gorgeous on you, I really hate it as an eyeshadow shade but that’s probably because I spend half my life trying not to look like I have red irritated eyes LOL. I really wish they hadn’t said it could be used on eyes, I honestly feel like they just said that to be different to other multi-use products. Just don’t.
