Oyster Pearl

Bite Beauty Oyster Pearl Prismatic Multistick ($24.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a plummy brown base with copper-to-green shifting sparkle and fine pearl. It had semi-sheer, buildable pigmentation (up to semi-opaque) with a lightly tinted base but was primarily “pigmented” through its shimmer.

The consistency was surprisingly smooth, lightly emollient, and on the thinner side (didn’t really feel powdery until it dried down) despite all that shimmer. It applied decently as an eyeshadow but was still best worn for a sheer, all-over-the-lid shade for a sparkling effect. On the cheeks, it had a subtle sheen and slight sparkle, but it read subtle compared to how it appeared on the lid and on the lips. As a lip product, it tinted my lips and made them appear plummy along with the shifting sparkle/shimmer. It wore well for nine hours as a cheek color, four hours as a lip color, and less than an hour as an eye color (before creasing).

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.

Blush Pearl

Bite Beauty Blush Pearl Prismatic Multistick ($24.00 for 0.16 oz.) had a translucent base with blue-to-silver shifting pearl and slightly larger, more sparkle-sized particles. The texture was fairly smooth despite how shimmery the finish was, and it definitely did not feel gritty or rough applied to the eyes, lips, or cheeks. The product was blendable along the edges. I did not find the coverage to be that buildable; it was primarily semi-sheer and could be sheered out slightly but I couldn’t build up the coverage beyond, at best, medium. It was transformative, though, and I could see the sheerness working well for this type of finish and shifting color.

It had a subtle effect on the cheeks (not as luminous as I expected, though) with a very strong sparkle and sheen on the lips. On the eyes, it worked well as a one-and-done shade for a sparkling, brightening effect but there was no wear time for me (creased within a half hour). It lasted for eight and a half hours on my cheeks with slight migration over time and three hours on my lips with some product settling into my lip lines over time.

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.

Dior Holo Pink (001) DiorSkin Nude Air Luminizer ($56.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a light pink with warm, peachy undertones and a metallic sheen. It had a subtle shift from peach to cooler pink, but it seemed more multi-colored in pearl than holographic or duochromatic, particularly compared to Holo Gold. The pigmenation was opaque, while the consistency was smooth, soft, and blendable without being too dry or too dense in the pan, which made it easy to pickup with a brush with precision and control. It delivered a strong, noticeable sheen on the skin, though it did not accentuate my skin’s natural texture. On me, the highlighter stayed on well for eight and a half hours.

Liquid Bronze Gold

Makeup Revolution Liquid Bronze Gold Liquid Highlighter ($9.00 for 0.60 oz.) is a light, golden copper with warm undertones and a metallic finish. It had a strong sheen on the skin, which did emphasize my skin’s natural texture slightly at medium or greater coverage. The highlighter had a lightweight, almost water-like texture that spread well over bare skin and diffused easily along the edges for a seamless blend. It had buildable pigmentation from sheer to semi-opaque, and the intensity grew from moderate to metallic. The highlighter lasted well on my cheekbones for eight and a half hours.

Formula Overview

$9.00/0.60 oz. - $15.00 Per Ounce

It's supposed to be a "buildable" liquid highlighter that is available in seven shades. They have a thin consistency that has a little more slip to it than water (almost an oiliness without being a true oil), which helped it spread more evenly on the skin without lifting base products or sheering out too readily. I had no trouble mixing the formula into liquid foundations, primers, or moisturizers or patting onto bare skin (or made-up skin) as a standalone highlighter. The effect of the highlighter was subtle to moderate, depending on application, amount applied, and whether it was layered. Most shades were buildable from semi-sheer to semi-opaque, though I noticed that they looked lighter and more similar applied than they did in the bottles. (Example: Liquid Lustre Gold appears as a darker copper when swatched but looked like a light pink on my cheeks.)

Urban Decay Beauty Beam Kristen Leanne Highlighter Trio ($34.00 for 0.38 oz.) contains three, luminous highlighters that range from copper to soft yellow to peach. All three shades were undeniably warm-toned, so I don’t expect it will appeal to everyone as a result. I only had slight issues with less pigmentation and a ever-so-slightly less-creamy texture with the third shade in the palette, but all three performed well.
