Cover FX Magic Shimmer Veil ($28.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a light, peachy pink with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic sheen. The consistency was a little more gel-like and fluid compared to other shades, though it was easy to work patted over the lips, cheeks, or as a one-and-done shade on the lid but took a little more coaxing when used with a brush on the eyelid. It produced a beautiful, luminous sheen on cheeks that stayed on well for nine hours. On eyes, it was brightening on its own and emphasized my lid texture slightly when I applied it at semi-opaque or greater levels, but the wear was solid at eight and a half hours. As a lip product, it was the most forgiving and least emphasizing of the six shades but still had quite a bit of shine, and it wore well for four and a half hours on my lips.

Formula Overview

$28.00/0.14 oz. - $200.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "customizable" coverage that delivers a "high-impact finish" that can be used on "eyes, lips, and beyond." These are very sparkling, shimmering, and metallic shades with a thin, lightly mousse-like consistency that dries down quickly and seems to last quite well, even on eyes. I had some trouble diffusing and blending out the edges as nicely as I wanted as they dried down too fast when I worked with brushes (it was easier to blend in time when just applying one shade all over the lid). On the eyes, they worked and applied best patted over another eyeshadow to do a glittery accent, halo eye, or placed onto the lid in a cut-crease look, but I struggled using more than one shade together (as a single eye look) and found they were a little thick and more prone to emphasizing lid texture if applied more heavily or into the crease. I didn't have any issues with the formula flaking or creasing on the eyes, though.

On the lips, they tended to apply with medium to semi-opaque coverage and spread evenly across the lips with little work (I used my fingertip to do so). They dried down to a transfer-resistant finish that felt "matte" in the sense of being flat/not glossy, but the finish itself was more metallic and sparkling overall. They didn't feel as clingy, dry, or as tight as I expected, though on their own, they didn't feel the most comfortable. They were most comfortable, on the lips, when patted over a more matte lip product or topped with clear balm or gloss. I found that creamier lipsticks tended to "eat" the shimmer and cover it up rather than letting it come through. The wear was between four and five hours.

On the cheeks, they spread easily over the skin and diffused gradually along the edges both over bare skin as well as patted over liquid foundation (without lifting up the base). It dried down and looked sparkly without looking chunky, dirty, or gritty on the skin. I was surprised to find it to be rather versatile formula--I could get moderate glow or get really intense, shiny, sparkly results depending on how much I applied. They lasted eight to nine hours on my cheeks.

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.

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.
