Bite Beauty Mulisticks
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 (the performance depended largely on the shade), and as an eye product, it was a total miss for me due to poor wear.
In general, if you’re someone who really wanted to try it as a cream eyeshadow, I’d definitely try one shade and see how it went. There are some readers who have managed better wear out of them as a cream eyeshadow, though there are others who have had similar issues with instant creasing as me. If you’re someone who wanted to use them more as a cream blush, I think they’re well-worth checking out, because they’ve been particularly lovely as cheek colors with a great finish and long wear. I like them as lipsticks, but I think you would do better with traditional lipstick (including Bite’s own Amuse Bouche) if you’d mostly wear it as a lip color.
