Bite Beauty Multistick: Mascarpone

When this product came out I was instantly drawn to it – a lipstick, blusher and eyeshadow in one?  I suppose any makeup product can go beyond what it’s meant to be (I’ve used lipstick as blush before!) but to have something officially marketed as a 3-in-1, well, I got suckered in!

This is the Bite Beauty Multistick in Mascarpone:

As per Sephora:

What it is:
A multistick that applies like a cream and wears like a powder for weightless color application—just apply with your finger or a brush on the eyes, lips, and cheeks.

What it does:
With 35 percent powder in each Multistick bullet, this silicone-free formula creates a soft focus finish that’s blendable, breathable, and buildable. It features universal shades for the eyes, lips, and cheeks that compliment all skintones and are formulated to use anywhere on the face.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
– Parabens
– Sulfates
– Phthalates

What else you need to know:
Bite Beauty products are free of petrochemicals and silicones.

The shade range of the BB Multisticks are awesome – from nudes, pinks, corals, to deeper red and brown shades – there is something for every skintone. It was hard for me to choose just one shade to start with, but I settled on Mascarpone – a deep pink shade that I thought would look great on my medium skintone and would be a perfect transition shade into the autumn season – still fresh and natural, but with a bit more depth.

On the cheeks, I use the stick directly on my face, apply a couple little swipes and blend with my fingers. I use the Beauty Blender to clean up any wonky edges.  The finish it leaves is exactly as how Sephora describes:  “applies like a cream and wears like a powder” and “creates a soft focus finish”.  The lasting power of this as a blush is actually quite impressive – a full 8-hour day at work and by the time I get home the colour is still there.

On the lips, this gives a semi-matte finish. It’s surprisingly creamy to apply and feels comfortable on my lips, in spite of it being matte.  The colour pay-off is pretty amazing, easy to build up and doesn’t seem to cling to any dry patches. The lasting power is decent – not as long as a liquid lipstick but longer than a cream-formula.

I have not tried this on my eyes and probably won’t in all honesty – the shade I chose was one that I wanted primarily for my lips and cheeks. However, some of the deeper brown shades in the range would probably look amazing as eyeshadows.

The Bite Beauty Multistick is a great product for travelling – whether in your everyday makeup bag or if you’re going away  – you potentially have 3 products in one little bullet!

I’m already eyeing up another shade to purchase – loving this product.

Purchased at Sephora for $28Cdn.
