Peacock Pearl

Bite Beauty Peacock Pearl Prismatic Multistick ($24.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a blackened brown base with green-to-teal shifting pearl. As a cheek or eye color, I could see it working better on deeper skin tones, as the underlying base color was a little uneven and patchy on the skin but a skin tone closer to that base would minimize how visible that was. On my skin tone, it was more apparent. This shade applied the most evenly and was most buildable on the eyelid compared to the others released, but I had no luck with wear time (consistent with my experience with the original Multistick formula).

The texture was lightweight, thin, and slightly emollient so there was a dewy finish on the skin and a fine pearly sheen. This shade seemed to have the least sparkle/impact of the shades released. As a lip product, the pearl dispersed evenly on the lips, and the base provided medium coverage in color, but there was some product that pulled into my lip lines and some of the shimmer particles clumped in places. It lasted for less than an hour on my eyelids, eight and a half hours on my cheeks, and four hours on my lips. I think getting Bite’s Peacock Pearl gloss is a better option if you’re looking for a transformative lip color, though.

Formula Overview

$24.00/0.17 oz. - $141.18 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "weightless, layerable color" that can be applied to "eyes, cheeks, and lips" with a "breathable, blendable, and buildable" formula. These are a shimmering take on the brand's previous Multisticks. I found the general feel and performance to be in line with the original formula with the shimmery shades seeming to have a bit more slip and less "powderiness" to them. They base seemed to be more translucent and never buildable to full coverage, and the coverage was semi-sheer to semi-opaque, depending on the shade.

I didn't have good luck with the Multisticks on eyes (they creased incredibly quickly on me--in minutes, typically!), and I'm sad to report that the Prismatic finish did not go much better for me. I had a lot of trouble applying them evenly onto the lid except when patting them onto the lid and sheering out with my fingertip for a one-and-done eyeshadow look, but I could not build them up or get them to apply evenly on the lid. The only shade that worked decently on the lid (just in terms of application) was Peacock Pearl as it had finer pearl and less larger sparkle. They settled into my creases quickly and did not have any staying power on my eyelids, even over primer or dusted with translucent powder (the wear was better but still dismal).

The formula has performed the best as a cheek color for me, as the were very much as described–blendable and buildable. I liked to use a synthetic blush brush to swirl on the color and then used my fingertips to blend out the edges. The product doesn't dry down fully, so there was a dewy glow in addition to the subtle pearl/sparkle on the skin. I think that the shine and luminosity are more apparent in person than in photos for this particular product. They applied decently enough as a lip color, but there were issues with the product settling into my lip lines with some shades. They were more comfortable and felt a little more balm-like on the lips than the original Multisticks, which had a thicker, drier, and more powdery feel on my lips. The wear time was between three and five hours.

I love my peacock pearl gloss, but this just seems like such an odd color to try to market as an all-in-one product. As a cheek product I can’t imagine that blue/green shift really working on any but the deepest, cool-undertoned complexions.

THIS is why I need to wait for the Temptalia take on products prior to purchasing. I love the idea of this product for the eyes, so I pulled the lever and it should arrive tomorrow. Bummer. I like anything with a greenish/blue shift, so I had an automatic attraction to this specific shade from the line. I’m off to deep dive into the dupes! You’re the best, Christine!

I had higher hopes for this one. I used it twice as an eyeshadow. It creased the second time. I may have used primer the first time and it was OK but not great. It swatched so beautifully on my arm, too! Oh, well, I’ll have to try it as I lip color, I don’t think I could pull this color off as a cheek color…

This and the gloss are a really stunning effect and I’m a fan of the boldly shifting colors, always but honestly, I just pat a little of Sugarpill Lumi over my lipstick for something very similar when I want this look. It’s too much of a distinctly singular product for me to want an entire full size stick, especially when, as I suspected, the lasting power is not stellar on cheeks or eyes. Pass.

Yeah good plan, Brenda. Oyster Pearl is going back. I didn’t wait for the reviews and the glittery remains of the product all over my face, were a no-go for me.

I just *knew* the moment I first saw the swatches of this shade, that it wasn’t going to fly. It just looked too grainy in texture. Thankfully, I do have the Peacock Prismatic Lip Creme, and plenty of these variation of eyeshadow, too.

I really wish Bite would shift their focus away from multisticks. I haven’t seen many glowing reviews of any of the colors and haven’t seen anyone who uses them regularly. Yet Bite keeps churning them out. Stop trying to make ‘fetch’…er, multisticks happen, Bite.
