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.

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 had a smooth, velvety texture–consistent with the range–that was light-medium in weight, thicker but not dry or heavy. This shade worked well on the cheeks and on the lips, but it fell short (due to wear time) on the lids.

It had buildable coverage when applied with fingertips or dabbed onto skin directly from the tube, but it had opaque coverage if you swiped the tube against the skin (e.g. applying it to lips directly from the tube). I had no trouble diffusing and blending the edges of the color on the cheeks and on the eyes. On lips, I was able to maneuver the rounded bullet on the lips without too many issues, but the more traditional pointed lipstick shape is definitely easier to work with, so you might prefer to use a lip brush (which is also a good idea if you want to use it as a true, multi-tasking product on eyes).

On the lips, the color wore well for five and a half hours, was neither drying nor hydrating, and sat well with smooth, even coverage that was comfortable to wear overall. When I wore it as a blush, the color showed subtle signs of fading after nine and a half hours of wear. Unfortunately, the product creased within ten minutes of applying to my eyelids.

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 was very smooth, velvety but not too dry or powdery, and it was really effortless to diffuse and blend it on the eyes, cheeks, and lips. It performed best on the cheeks, which is as expected, with medium, buildable coverage that was blendable, long-wearing (nine hours), and had a natural sheen–not transfer-proof but didn’t seem to migrate over time.

As a lip product, it was completely opaque when I applied it directly from the tube, but if you apply it with fingertips, you can get less coverage or build-up to your desired coverage level. It was comfortable wear over a six and a half hour period, as it didn’t cling to the lips nor did it slide around. The color covered evenly, while the formula didn’t emphasize lip lines or my lips’ natural texture. It wasn’t hydrating, but it wasn’t drying either.

It performed better than many shades in the range as a cream eyeshadow on me, though it is not something I would feel comfortable wearing without primer and setting with powder. The coverage depended on application method; fingertips would give sheerer coverage while swiping from the tube would yield more opaque coverage. It diffused and blended easily into a soft wash of color. On my normal-to-dry eyelids, the color lasted for a whole hour before creasing (better than the five minutes of many!) on its own.

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 was velvety, lightly creamy, and glided on easily while blending out with soft, diffused edges. It had medium, buildable coverage overall, but the level of coverage depended on application, as applying directly from the tube in firm strokes yielded higher coverage (semi-opaque) while dabbing the color against the cheeks resulted in sheerer coverage.

This particularly shade applied best as a lip color, as it went on evenly and smoothly, didn’t tug, and lasted for well over six hours. The formula was neither drying nor hydrating over time for me. While the color had a lovely natural sheen and blended out easily on my cheeks, I noticed that some of the color resulted in very subtle darkening of some spots, almost like freckles. It seems like it darkened in areas where the skin just wasn’t perfectly smooth or even by its very nature, so perhaps a smoothing primer underneath would help minimize this effect. Nevertheless, it still wore for over ten hours on me as a blush. The only area that was difficult for me to wear the color was on eyes, as it creased within a few minutes.

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 was slightly more emollient than other shades in the range, though it was not slippery or what I’d consider to be wet or problematic. I had no trouble applying and blending out the color on eyes, lips, or cheeks as it diffused easily and evenly. The coverage is best described as buildable, as the only way to get truly opaque coverage is by applying directly from the tube, which will yield opaque coverage. If applied by dabbing onto the cheeks, or if you use a brush or fingertips, you’ll come away with a more buildable level of coverage.

It wore best as a cheek color, as it held on for a solid ten hours, had a natural sheen that wasn’t too dewy or too matte, and blended out nicely. It performed well as a lip color, though it isn’t quite as hydrating or as comfortable to wear as the brand’s Amuse Bouche range. The texture felt a little thicker and heavier on the lips than the average satin formula, but it was still relatively comfortable to wear and, better yet, it was not drying over the five and a half hours it wore for. As an eyeshadow, it was easy enough to apply and blend out, but I had noticeable creasing within thirty minutes (which is actually better than other shades I’ve tested up until this point!), which is only marginally improved by primer; the best is to set with translucent powder, which extended wear into a few hours.

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

Bite Beauty Cocoa Multistick

Bite Beauty Cocoa Multistick
Bite Beauty Cocoa Multistick

Bite Beauty Cocoa Multistick ($24.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a deep, chocolaty brown with subtle, warmer yellow undertones and a natural sheen. By Terry Savannah Love #6 (LE, ) is more shimmery, lighter, less glossy (90% similar). MAC Film Noir (P, $23.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Swiss Chocolate (P, $23.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Bite Beauty Anise (P, $24.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). MAC Pressed Amber (LE, $27.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Tarte Grunge (P, $20.00) is cooler (85% similar). MAC Earthshine (LE, $33.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Tarte Brownie (P, $20.00) is lighter, warmer (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 formula felt really smooth and lightly creamy without too much slip; I can feel what they mean by having 35% powder in it (but it doesn’t feel dry and doesn’t drag across the skin at all). It is intensely pigmented if applied directly from the tube as a wipe, but if applied with fingertips or a brush or dabbed on, it is very buildable. The texture has enough slip that it spread easily across the skin, blended without becoming uneven nor did it lift product underneath it.

As a cheek color, I had no trouble diffusing and blending out the color to semi-sheer coverage, but it could easily be applied more heavily or built-up in layers. The formula did not fully dry down, but I didn’t notice any issues where the color moved or separated over time. It lasted for nine and a half hours on my cheeks. As a lip product, it was opaque applied directly from the tube with a light-medium feel and weight, which was comfortable to wear and more flattering than I would have expected for a multitasking product. The color lasted just over five and a half hours on my lips and was neither drying nor hydrating. I only had trouble with wear on the eyes, which was a trip to Crease City within ten minutes.

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