Bite Beauty Mascarpone Multistick

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.

Bite Beauty Gelato Multistick

Bite Beauty Gelato Multistick

Bite Beauty Gelato Multistick ($24.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a medium, rosy mauve with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. Chanel Rose Temptation (LE, $45.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Estee Lauder Audacious Plum (P, $34.00) is cooler (90% similar). Bite Beauty Thistle (P, $26.00) is darker (85% similar). MAC Girls Do Blush (LE, $23.00) is more shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Trap (P, $6.00) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Really Me (P, $17.50) is lighter, warmer (80% 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. It feels both lightweight and thick, and it ultimately depends on how you apply it. For example, if you applied it directly to lips, it was a heavier and thicker product, whereas if you patted it onto cheeks with fingertips or a brush, it felt almost weightless. The consistency was smooth, lightly creamy, and blendable–and it is particularly blendable on cheeks (likely due to the warmth of the skin) and spreads easily.

As a blush, it applied easily, blended out well, and had a satin sheen–never fully set–that lasted for ten hours on me. As a lip product, it had opaque coverage when applied directly from the tube and covered evenly and smoothly, and it wore well for four and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. As an eye product, it blended easily but creased within a few minutes, as it dried down fully, so while I could blend and smooth the color back out so it didn’t look crease, it would just repeat.

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

Viseart Rose/Coral (02) Blush Palette

Viseart Rose/Coral (02) Blush Palette
Viseart Rose/Coral (02) Blush Palette

Viseart Rose/Coral (02) Blush Palette ($80.00 for 0.84 oz.) is a six-pan blush palette that is the same size (and contains the same amount) as the eyeshadow palettes. It comes in a black plastic compact with a clear lid. Each palette is divided into two families and is “scaled into three levels of cheek color, ideal for the fairest to deep skin tones.” The powder blush formula is supposed to “apply seamlessly” and have “sheer to fuller coverage.” In general, the blush applied better with a light-to-moderately dense brush, light hand, and built-up in layers rather than immediately packed into place. The texture was smooth but dusty, sometimes powdery, and kicked up excess in the pan, so with some of the richer shades, it was easy to over-apply. The formula played better with my skin when it was normal, whereas drier areas had some trouble with the product adhering to the skin for some shades but not all (if you normally wear a cream or liquid base, you should be good to go). The majority of the blushes in the palettes are mostly matte, and they look very smooth on the skin–they actually seemed to hide texture and pores, which was interesting. Most of the shades lasted at least eight hours on my normal-to-dry skin with some lasting as long as nine and a half hours.

Rose #1 is a light-medium cotton candy pink with strong, blue undertones and a matte finish. The texture was soft, finely-milled, but prone to kicking up excess powder in the pan. It blended out easily on the skin, and despite the powderiness in the pan, it did not appear dry or cakey on my skin. It had semi-sheer, buildable coverage (to mostly opaque) that wore well for eight hours. NARS Power Play (LE, $30.00) is warmer (95% similar). Make Up For Ever B202 (P, $23.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay X-Rated (P, $26.00) is darker, more muted, warmer (95% similar).

MAC Well Dressed (P, $23.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (90% similar). Stila Light Pink (LE, ) is darker, more muted (90% similar).

Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Rose #2 is a bold, bright medium pink with cool, blue undertones and a matte finish. This shade was more intensely pigmented with a smoother, silkier texture that did not run powdery or dusty. Though, on the other side of that coin, it wasn’t as easily sheered out or built-up compared to Rose #1 as a result. It was more mostly opaque in coverage, and if you wanted sheerer coverage, I would suggest using the barest tap of the brush or opting for a fan brush. The color lasted for eight and a half hours on my skin. Urban Decay Quickie (-, ) is lighter, brighter (95% similar). MAC Pink Swoon (P, $23.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Milani Delizioso Pink (10) (P, $8.00) is lighter (90% similar). NARS Roman Holiday (LE, $30.00) is lighter (90% similar). Anastasia Pageant (P, ) is more shimmery, darker, more muted (90% similar). MAC Peony Petal (LE, $23.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop Above & Beyond (LE, ) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Rose #3 is a bold, medium-dark fuchsia pink with cool, bluish undertones and a matte finish. The texture was a smidgen dusty, almost grainy to the touch, but it blended out fairly easily on the skin and did not look dry applied. It had semi-sheer to fully opaque, buildable coverage. On me, I noticed fading after nine hours of wear. Sephora I'm Quite Tipsy (08) (P, $14.00) is lighter, more muted (95% similar). Sephora I'm Shocked (09) (P, $14.00) is brighter, cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Savage (P, ) is darker, brighter (90% similar). Make Up For Ever B216 (P, $23.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar).

Coral #1 is a bright, medium peachy-orange with warm undertones and a matte finish. While the texture was finely-milled, it was looser in the pan and came away in larger chunks, which made it a little harder to apply evenly and with the desired level of coverage. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque pigmentation after two and a half layers. The color wore for eight hours on me before I saw subtle fading. Pretty Vulgar Sweet Revenge (P, $26.00) is more shimmery, darker, more muted (90% similar). Anastasia Coastline (LE, ) is darker, more muted (90% similar).

Coral #2 is a bright, medium-dark pink-coral with warm undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was smooth, finely-milled, and blendable without being too soft or too loose in the pan. It had medium to full coverage, so it was moderately buildable, that sat well on the skin and lasted for eight and a half hours. Colour Pop Fruit Stand (DC, $8.00) is darker (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Flush (Discontinued) (DC, $60.00) is more muted (95% similar). NYX Tuscan (P, $6.50) is darker (95% similar).

Coral #3 is a medium-dark pinky-red with subtle, cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had medium, buildable coverage (up to fully opaque) that could have been a little more blendable and more forgiving when it came to application. The texture was fairly soft, smooth, and wasn’t too powdery, but there was a touch of graininess to it at times. The color wore well for just over eight and a half hours before starting to break down. MAC Red Envy (LE, $23.00) is darker (95% similar).

Bite Beauty Nectar Multistick

Bite Beauty Nectar Multistick
Bite Beauty Nectar Multistick

Bite Beauty Nectar Multistick ($24.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a medium-dark, slightly muted purple with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. Estee Lauder Shameless Violet (P, $30.00) is darker (95% similar). Urban Decay Bittersweet (P, $26.00) is lighter, less glossy (90% similar). Melt Cosmetics By Starlight (P, $19.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Bite Beauty Taro (LE, $26.00) is more muted, cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Twitch (P, $17.00) is lighter, glossier (85% similar). Kat Von D Ayesha (P, $20.00) is lighter, more muted (85% similar). Makeup Geek Love Letter (P, $10.00) is warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

The texture was very much true to the brand’s claims–it was blendable, buildable, and didn’t feel clingy or heavy on the skin. It felt the heaviest on the lips if applied directly from the tube (which yielded opaque coverage), as it is a light-to-medium thick consistency overall. As a blush, the color blended out easily on top of bare skin as well as over liquid foundation and lasted for ten hours. As an eyeshadow, it blended out well and could be applied as a sheer wash or more intensely, but it started to crease within a few minutes on my normal-to-dry lids. As a lipstick, it lasted for six and a half hours, was neither drying nor hydrating, and applied evenly and smoothly.

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.

MAC Blind Score Casual Colour Lip & Cheek Colour

MAC Blind Score Casual Colour
MAC Blind Score Casual Colour

MAC Blind Score Casual Colour ($23.00 for 0.08 oz.) is described as a “dirty reddish lilac.” It’s a slightly muted, dark berry with cool undertones and a natural sheen. CoverGirl Deep Mauve (P, $9.99) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Here You Go (LE, ) is brighter (90% similar). Colour Pop New Lowes (LE, $8.00) is warmer, less glossy (90% similar). Viseart Violet #3 (P, ) is less glossy (90% similar). IT Cosmetics Magical in Mauve (P, $24.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Passionately Tempted (LE, $23.00) is darker (90% similar). Chanel Vivacite (88) (LE, $45.00) is less shimmery, less glossy (90% similar). MAC Hot Nights (LE, $23.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Restores Dazzle (LE, $21.00) is warmer (90% similar). NARS Jeanette (LE, $39.00) is lighter, less pigmented, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

The Casual Colour formula is designed for use on lips and cheeks with a “non-sticky,” “lightweight,” and hydrating formula. As you might exect with a multi-tasking product, it is better in one area than the other; in the case of this formula, it’s better on the cheeks than on the lips. Applied as a blush, it goes on easily–blendable, smooth, and doesn’t lift product if used on top of foundation nor does it sit poorly on bare skin–and looks like stain, which wore for nine hours. Applied as a lip color, it is thin, clingy, and emphasizes the natural texture of the lips, and it is somewhat drying over the four and a half hours it lasted. Blind Score had semi-opaque coverage that was easily built up to opaque coverage or sheered out for sheerer coverage–it’s very easy to control and diffuse, particularly on cheeks. The thinness of the formula on lips makes it harder to sheer it out, but it is still buildable to opaque coverage on lips.

Viseart Plum/Bronze (01) Blush Palette ($80.00 for 0.84 oz.) is a six-pan blush palette that is the same size (and contains the same amount) as the eyeshadow palettes. It comes in a black plastic compact with a clear lid. Each palette is divided into two families and is “scaled into three levels of cheek color, ideal for the fairest to deep skin tones.” The powder blush formula is supposed to “apply seamlessly” and have “sheer to fuller coverage.” In general, the blush applied better with a light-to-moderately dense brush, light hand, and built-up in layers rather than immediately packed into place. The texture was smooth but dusty, sometimes powdery, and kicked up excess in the pan, so with some of the richer shades, it was easy to over-apply. The formula played better with my skin when it was normal, whereas drier areas had some trouble with the product adhering to the skin for some shades but not all (if you normally wear a cream or liquid base, you should be good to go).

Most of the shades lasted at least eight hours on my normal-to-dry skin with some lasting as long as nine and a half hours.

Plum #1 is a light pink with subtle, warmer undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer, buildable coverage–about semi-opaque with two to three layers–that applied well to the skin and blended out with ease. The texture was thin and a touch dusty, but the powder did not look uneven or dry on me. The color lasted for eight hours before fading. NARS Threesome (LE, $30.00) is cooler (95% similar). Burberry S/S15 Runway (LE, $65.00) is darker (90% similar). Zoeva Gentle Touch (P, $11.80) is darker (90% similar). Make Up For Ever B206 (P, $23.00) is warmer (90% similar). Hourglass Ethereal Glow (P, $35.00) is lighter (90% similar). Surratt Beauty Guimauve (P, $32.00) is more shimmery, brighter (90% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Plum #2 is a medium-dark, dusty plum with subtle, cooler undertones and a matte finish. The texture was finely-milled and smooth, lightly dusty, and thin overall. It had sheer coverage that was buildable to semi-opaque coverage with three layers. This shade wasn’t as easy to diffuse along the edges on my skin, and it tended to apply a little unevenly. I ended up going back in with a large, clean buffing brush to get the color to even out for the most part. I noticed slight fading after eight hours of wear. LORAC Caribbean (LE, $23.00) is lighter (95% similar). Viseart Enamored (Blush) (P, ) is warmer (95% similar). Urban Decay Sesso (Blush) (P, ) is cooler (90% similar).

Estee Lauder Alluring Rose (P, $34.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). theBalm Cabana Boy (P, $21.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay TMI (P, $26.00) is cooler (90% similar). NARS Oasis (P, $30.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Plum #3 is a medium-dark, reddish berry with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. While the texture was soft to the touch initially, it was also a smidgen grainy (this is something that I’ve experienced before with red-toned powders) at times. The color adhered well to the skin, and despite some reservations from the texture, it applied and blended out fairly easily. It had semi-sheer to opaque color payoff. This shade wore well for nine hours on me. Make Up For Ever B500 (P, $23.00) is brighter (95% similar). MAC Petulant (LE, $22.00) is glossier (95% similar). Tarte Ironic (LE, $28.00) is lighter (90% similar). Surratt Beauty Rougeur (P, $32.00) is darker, brighter (90% similar). Make Up For Ever S502 (P, $23.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Cheerio (P, $8.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop Mistress (LE, ) is lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Quiver (P, $26.00) is brighter (85% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Bronze #1 is a medium, yellowed brown with warm undertones and a satin sheen. There was faint shimmer to this shade, though it looked more like a semi-matte-to-satin finish applied. The texture was soft, silky, and blendable, but it was looser and kicked up excess product in the pan and tended to apply more evenly to less dry skin (or prepped skin). It had semi-sheer to opaque color payoff, which wore well for eight hours on me. MAC Golden Rinse (LE, $35.50) is lighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Sun-Kissed (P, $28.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Desert Days (P, $48.00) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Bronze #2 is a medium-dark, caramel brown with warm, reddish undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-sheer to mostly opaque pigmentation that was buildable in two and a half to three layers. It was slightly thin, and it felt a little firmer than the other shades in the palette. The color took some extra effort to blend and diffuse along the edges for even coverage, though. On me, it stayed on well for eight and a half hours. Colour Pop Happy Hour (P, $8.00) is darker (95% similar). Le Metier de Beaute Sun Drenched (P, $55.00) is warmer (90% similar).

Bronze #3 is a dark, subdued rosy brown with hints of warmth paired with a true satin sheen. This was the most shimmery shade in the palette, and the finish is gorgeous as it is blended on the skin–glowing but not overtly shimmery. It had buildable coverage from medium to full. The texture was soft, blendable, and smooth without being powdery. I noticed slight fading after eight and a half hours of wear. Too Faced Spiced Peach (P, $30.00) is lighter (95% similar).
