Kat Von D Lolita is iconic. How can one rosey terracotta be so universally flattering? And versatile? I’ve worn my Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita out at night, during the day, and to several special occasions. It’s just that good. The only downside? It’s a little pricey, at $20USD. If you’re looking for a budget alternative to the shade, keep reading.
Bite Beauty is one of my favorite brands — they are innovative, on-trend, and skin-conscious. Using natural food-grade ingredients, Bite has released “Multisticks,” or products meant to be used as lip, cheek, and eye products (think NARS Multiples!), in a range of beautiful natural hues.
I was so excited to see them create a Prismatic Pearl line of Multisticks – they are amazing duochromatic, glittery washes of color that can be subtle or bold. I picked up the shade Oyster Pearl, described as “metallic taupe with silver shimmer.” Honestly, that shade description does not do this baby any justice! I see a lot of plummy-red and teal in the mix, making this a dynamic color that you probably don’t already have in your collection.
Stunning. I was so wowed by how multi-dimensional the shade looked both in the tube and swatched out. In texture, it’s thin and has a slight oily slip, but dries down to almost a powder-like finish. Keep in mind that if you’re oily, this will slide around, especially in the eyelid area.
I like how this product transforms based on what it’s layered on top of. You can really experiment and get different effects using just this one product!
The packaging is nice – Bite does a great job of creating sturdy, clean-looking, and minimalist components. I love the satisfaction of the magnetic closure on the tube! While it doesn’t seem like you get a lot of product for $24USD, the stick should take quite a long time to get through, even if you use it quite frequently. It’s compact, convenient, and easy to travel with.
A Minimal Look Using Oyster Pearl
Here’s a simple, glossy look using Oyster Pearl all over my eyelids and as a topper for the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Bow N Arrow.
Don’t you love the way the light catches this gorgeous prismatic beauty? I love how easy it is to use, too.
