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 texture of this shade was smooth, lightly velvety and creamy, so it had great blendability and was easy to spread across the skin without skipping or becoming patchy. It did seem slightly thinner compared to the majority of the shades I’ve tried, but it still performed similarly with longer wear on cheeks and lips, shorter wear on eyes. The coverage varied by application, as directly pressing the tube against the skin and making a swiping motion would leave a rich, opaque line while dabbing or patting from the tube was sheer and buildable. It is, overall, a medium, buildable coverage product.

When I applied it to my cheeks, the color diffused nicely along the edges and looked even without having to work hard. I had no trouble applying with fingertips or with synthetic brushes. This shade wore well for eight and a half hours as a blush.

On the lips, I applied it directly from the tube, and it yielded smooth, opaque pigmentation that sat fairly well on the lips, but some of the color settled into my lip lines within an hour and a half of wear. The formula felt comfortable, though, and lasted for four and a half hours.

As much as I’d love for this to be a true three-in-one product, the performance as a cream eyeshadow left much to be desired, because it creased within ten minutes of applying. Even if I smoothed the color back into place with my fingertip, it would migrate and separate in the crease/lines of my lid.

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 really like this one way better applied as opposed to what the tube shade appears to be! A very nice everyday type of orange tone instead of, say, MAC Morange or UD Tilt!
