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. Mochi is a bold shade in the tube, but when wore at sheer to medium coverage, it looks more pink than it does red. In order to get true red color, it has to be worn at mostly opaque or fully opaque coverage. The texture was smooth, creamy, and blendable on all three areas it can be worn, but it performed the best as a lip color, then as a cheek color, and worst as an eyeshadow.

On my cheeks, it applied easily with fingertips, a brush, or dabbed on directly from the tube, though I preferred fingertips as the product melted and blended effortlessly with the warmth of my fingertips. It has more buildable coverage when applied with fingertips or a brush, but if you swiped it on directly from the tube, it would leave a rather opaque streak. The texture sat well on the skin and had a natural sheen, but it wasn’t glossy and didn’t move around during the day. The color lasted for ten hours on my cheeks.

On my lips, I applied it directly from the tube, and it was opaque in one stroke, though if I applied it using fingertips or a lip brush, it was sheerer. The consistency was smooth and sat well on the lips without emphasizing my natural texture or sinking into my lip lines. This shade wore for over six hours, wasn’t drying, and left a stain behind.

On my eyes, the color creased within minutes after I had applied it. The color didn’t adhere any better despite trying fingertips, brushes, sponges, and directly from the tube. The consistency is creamy and blendable, which made it easy to apply to the lid, but I just couldn’t get longevity out of it at all. It didn’t dry down or set, so it always remained blendable and moveable, and I’d even push the color back into place but it would crease again.

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.

Another pretty shade.

I’m a little on the fence now about picking one up simply because these are a dry texture when I was testing them up in person in the store 2 days ago, but I think the skinned over being left one the display open.

I really love this color. You look absolutely amazingly beautiful, Christine. I might have to pick this one up although since I am super pale it won’t look anything like this on me. Just gorgeous on you though!

Swatched and liked this one, color-wise. Went with Gelato, which, as I commented earlier, had very little similarity to what you received. Have mixed feelings about this product. As a lipstick, it has a powdered texture that reminds me of an ancient revlon product that looked like a credit card, slid open to reveal a powder l/s formula and a small sponge app. The stay-in-place aspect is good, the longevity not so much. But I picked pale and greigy, not my usual darker/browner/redder choices. As a blush, choice will be fine colorwise. Significant fade/loss, though. Possibly due to a return to cream blush eating skin, or the matches/cancels aspect. Did not try as an eye product, know better. I think I tried this to try it. Not sure I have found any hybrid product that I think works as well as one of the components in a dedicated form. (Meaning a lipstick. A blush. Not together. Not sure I was clear.)

When I tried this one on in Sephora, I loved it as a lipstick color so much that I very nearly forwent Chanel Rouge Vie to get this one instead! It is a super pretty shade!
Now to figure out what I’m going to do about RV…it seems like I already have the EXACT same shade in MAC VG I. Perplexed and surprised.

Wow … another really nice one. I’m really only looking at these for blush layering potential, but it sure doesn’t hurt that a few of them make stunning lip colors — especially this one!
