Bite Beauty Multisticks Review and Swatches

Bite Beauty Multisticks Review and Swatches
 Hey Dreamers and Creators!

Do you prefer multi-use makeup products or products made specifically for that step? I feel like I'm in between the two. I like some multi-use products but for some makeup steps I prefer single use over it. I think no matter the type of product, what it comes down to is texture, scent, lasting power, pigmentation, and application. At least, those 5 areas are what I look at when buying new makeup products.

Not too long ago, Bite Beauty came out with their Multisticks, a multi-use product for your eyes, lips, and face. I was curious about them since they are a new-ish brand for me and I previously liked some of their lipsticks, so I wondered how these would fare.

I'm usually picky about cream based eye and cheek makeup products. I've found cream based eye products to crease and smudge easily on my lids, sometimes even primer and powder won't help. As for creamy cheek products, it's always been a hit or miss with me. So the one thing that I thought I might at least like about these multisticks is their use as a lip product. Although, at first glance, I wasn't too sure if I'd ever wear Cocoa on it's own. However, after testing them out multiple times, I think I've gained new found love for some and not so much for others.

These products can be used anywhere on the face and you can apply it with either a brush or your fingers.

The 3 shades I have: Cocoa, Macaroon, and Blondie.

Packaging: Bite Beauty's simple but sleek packaging is always a treat. I like that each bullet has their signature B engraved on it. The box came with plenty of information about the products and it's good to know that each multistick will last for 2 years after opening. The twist up/down packaging makes the product easy to use and as always their magnetic enclosure keeps the lid on and secured.

Scent: All 3 multisticks have the same scent. It has a super light and sweet citrus scent, like a light version of BB's lipsticks. The scent is so light you might almost miss it. It also has a bit of that lipsticky makeup scent as well.

Texture: Like the product promises, it applies creamy. If you want to keep the pigment and don't blend it, it will take some time to dry/settle in. However, if you blend it, the product will settle faster but it will loose some pigmentation. The end result feels a bit velvety and powdery.

As a lip product, the lasting power of these multisticks aren't super. Like Bite Beauty's Lipsticks, I found them to last about 4 or 5 hours without eating or drinking. However, if I do eat or drink, they wear out much faster. Touch ups will be needed through out the day. Another thing to note is that these aren't really moisturizing on the lips, so you'll want to wear a hydrating lip balm underneath. The one potential downside I've found is that these can make dry patches on the lips more noticeable, so make sure you moisturize your lips well before using.

The multisticks didn't work well for my lids as eyeshadow. I do have semi-oily to oily lids and I haven't found a way to prevent them from creasing or smudging. So until then, I probably won't use these as eyeshadow. If you don't have semi-oily/oily lids, you might have better luck with these.

I found the multisticks to stay best on the cheeks/contour areas. All 3 shades I have can be used in these areas and they are fairly easy to blend as well. Without powdering, they might not last as long, however, with powder on top they can last longer. I tested it at home and it lasted for about 7 hours without moving around or wearing off. Although, the results might be different if I'm out and about all day as I do have combo to oily/oily skin so sometimes cream makeup breaks down much faster.

Bite Beauty Multistick in Cocoa

Cocoa is a rich chocolate brown color. Depending on skin tone and preference, it can be used as lipstick, eyeshadow, and contour product.

This was the first color I opened and the first one I tested. I knew I wasn't going to use this color alone on my lips and I did try mixing it with Macaroon and it came out as a nice pink brown color. Usable, but I'm not sure how often I would wear it on the lips. I might try mixing it with other lip products I have to see if I can create one that I really like. I did try Cocoa out as eyeshadow, but it just wasn't working at all. It wasn't long lasting on my lids and it didn't go on as nicely as I would have liked. So no to that. Lastly, I tried it out as a cream contouring product and on its own the color is just too dark for my skin tone. However, if I mix it with Blondie, it comes out as a decent contour color that I can use. I just have to blend it out super well.

 Bite Beauty Multistick in Blondie

Blondie is a nude beige color. It can be used on the lips and as eyeshadow. Depending on your skin tone, Blondie might work as either a contour or highlight color.

I don't wear nude lipsticks much and seeing as these multisticks don't work on my lids the only option is as a possible contour color. Blondie is a bit light for my face contour but if I mix a little bit of Cocoa in it, it comes out pretty good. I do, however, use Blondie to contour my nose area. It's light but still a little noticeable that I can do a more natural contour there without it looking too crazy.

 Bite Beauty Multistick in Macaroon

Macaroon is a classic pink color, which can be used as lipstick, eyeshadow, or blush.

Okay, this is my favorite out of the 3 because it's the one product I'd be using the most. I probably won't use this as eyeshadow, it's just way too pink as shadow and it won't stay on my lids. However, the classic pink is a really pretty shade on my lips and I can see myself wearing it often. If I want to switch it up a bit, I can always mix it with either Cocoa or Blondie to spice up the shade. Macaroon is also a really pretty blush shade. It might look super pink, but the shade is blendable, so you can get the right shade you want.

Final Thoughts: Although not all 3 shades work well for me in all areas, I still like them. I especially like the fact that I can blend them together to create new shades. Although, I can do that with other products too, so it's nothing special. I'm really fond of Macaroon and will be using it often. Blondie and Cocoa are colors I probably wouldn't get on my own. As one is too dark as contour and the other a tad light. However, together they make a great contour shade. So I think I would have preferred the in-between shade instead of having to mix the 2 every time.

Would I purchase them in the future? These exact 3 shades, probably not. Although I would like to find that in-between shade of Cocoa and Blondie (if possible) as that would be a great contour shade for me. Do I think these are worth a try? If you like cream products and Bite Beauty have the colors you are looking for than give them a shot! I do recommend going into Sephora to test them out first before buying.
