I don’t know what I was thinking when I first saw the Bite Beauty Prismatic Pearl Multistick pop up. I thought maybe they were a lip balm version of the glosses. I loved the colors of the glosses but I’m not a huge gloss fan. I realized after I grabbed them that they were more of a NARS Multiple kind of product good for eyes, cheeks and lips. I’m usually not a fan of multi-sticks like that as they tend to be too drying for my lips or too creamy for my cheeks. It’s hard to get a product that really does both areas well. Details per Sephora:
What it is:
A shimmering multistick that brings mesmerizing, pearl-inspired color to the lips, cheeks, or eyes.
What it does:
This shimmering multistick delivers weightless, layerable color in a silicone-free formula. Like Bite Beauty’s original Multistick, Prismatic Pearl Multistick is breathable, blendable, and buildable. Wear each of the universally flattering pearl-inspired shades on their own for a mesmerizing monochromatic look, or layer them over any eye, cheek, or lip color—including original Multistick—for transformative dimension.
What else you need to know:
For best results when applying to eyes, layer Prismatic Pearl Multistick over your favorite matte Multistick, or over an eye primer.
Bite Beauty’s creator, Susanne Langmuir, was inspired by Tahitian pearls to create Bite’s much-loved Prismatic Pearl Crème Lip Gloss—when she saw how transformative the glosses were on the lips, she sought to create a formula that would give this naturally pearlized look to cheeks and eyes, too.
These are really a prismatic glitter style multi purpose stick. The shades are pretty much the same as the glosses. I grabbed Pink Pearl, Oyster Pearl & Rose Pearl. The texture is pretty dry unfortunately. It’s a great texture for the eyes and cheeks, terribly drying for the lips. These were too glittery for me to be used on the face. I was OK with use on the lips if they hadn’t been so drying. They worked best as a highlighter but the glitter tended to migrate throughout the day all over my face. These felt like more of a makeup artist for an editorial shoot kind of product versus one someone would use everyday. Unless you really love glitter everywhere. They were a miss for me. Very pretty to stare at though. It’s a shame they dried my lips out so bad.
Pink Pearl is described as metallic pink with red and pink shimmer. That’s pretty accurate. Oyster Pearl is described as metallic taupe with silver shimmer. Which is true. It’s also more multi dimensional and has teal and a few other flecks of color in there. Rose Pearl is described as metallic rose with green and violet shimmer. I can see the violet hint to it. It feels like a warm rose with purple pink and an almost coppery kind of hint. Oyster Pearl looks pretty warm in the sunlight but inside on the cheeks it feels more neutral to cool.
