Bite Beauty released a new multi-purpose product that you can use on your lips, eyes and cheeks called the Multistick. It’s a cream product that applies like a cream, wears like a powder and feels weightless on the skin. There is 35% powder in each Multistick, it has a silicone free formula with a soft focus finish that’s blendable and buildable.
The line has 18 different shades that are all universal shades and will suit all skin tones. The colors range from a beautiful purple to very neutral nudes that are perfect for every day use.
The Bite Beauty Multisticks come in the following shades:
Nectar (deep dusty plum)
Macaroon (deep dusty rose)
Papaya (fresh coral with rose)
Anise (rich coffee)
Cocoa (dark chocolate)
Cerise (dark cherry with brown)
Brioche (rich teracotta)
Gelato (hazy plum with taupe)
Praline (spicy peach)
Mochi (classic deep red)
Biscotti (deep muted mauve)
Honeywheat (milk chocolate)
Creme Caramel (fresh melon)
Blondie (nude taupe)
Lotus (fresh pink)
Mascarpone (deep salmon)
Almond (rich mahogany)
Cashew (rose taupe)
Since the formula is 35% powder I was curious to see how the Multisticks would work on the lips, I thought they might be too drying for my liking but I was pleasantly surprised by the creaminess and how comfortable they felt on the lips. They don’t even have a matte finish, it’s more of a satin when they’re packed on the lips. The pigmentation is also super nice, you get full on pigment by one swipe.
I tested the Multisticks on the lips, cheeks and eyes and there are some different techniques that I prefer for every use. For the lips I prefer applying them directly from the tube and then I use a lip brush to get a precise edge. The way that the bullet is shaped I found that it was difficult to apply them precisely, especially with the darker shades you have to use either a lip pencil or a lip brush just to make sure you get a perfect application.
For the eyes I prefer a brush for application. I think the bullet is too big if you want to do precise application and also with a brush it’s easier to control the pigmentation and slowly build up the product. I used a blending brush for the eyes and I got a really nice wash of color. I also like to use multiple shades to create a more complex look.
If you have oily eyelids and you tend to crease when it comes to cream products I recommend using a primer before you apply the Multisticks on the eyes. I tested them with and without primer and they worked really well on me both ways.

On the cheeks they also performed really well. They didn’t move the foundation when blended and they also blend very easy on the skin. The finish that they give is of a matte blush and they last really well on the skin.

I love a good multipurpose product. Especially when I’m in a hurry, it’s great that there are products that I can use on my eyes, lips and cheeks.
The Bite Beauty Multisticks are perfect for people who don’t want to spend a lot of time doing their makeup and also people who like the “natural look”. I like to throw in two or three shades in my bag just in case I have to do my makeup on the go. The Multisticks are super easy to use and you can literally do a makeup look in 5 minutes or less.
