Products I love: The Multistick by Bite Beauty

BeautyLibby RasmussenComment

So truthfully, I didn't really start wearing lipstick until this year.  I always hated the sticky consistency and frankly, the upkeep of reapplication after every hour, or more. Then I received the Multistick from Bite Beauty to test out and now I don't leave the house without it. 

The Multistick is the ideal product for the low (or high) -maintenance gal on the go, who still likes a little cheek contour and lipstick now and then.

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% 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 skin tones 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.

In my kit, I was sent three shades: Blondie (nude beige) Macaroon (pink) and Cocoa (deep chocolate brown) 

The Multistick formula comes in 18 shades which can each be used as a lipstick, a blush or contour, or a soft eyeshadow.  They apply like a cream but look like a light powder, keeping you looking light and effortless.  

Everyday, I use the Cocoa shade under my cheekbones and along my forehead for a light contour. While it looks super thick and dark, the stick blends right lightly and evenly when blended with a brush. I use the medium-sized angled brush from my Sonia Kashuk brush kit to blend in the contour. 
On my eyelids, I use the Blondie shade for added color. This is where I love the creamy yet powdery consistency of the Multistick the most.  It's light enough to blend in with my Laura Mercier highlighter on my brow bone, yet creamy enough to stay put. Lastly, or my lips and cheeks, I use the Macaroon shade, which I highly recommend for any skin tone.

Current Beauty Obsessions

BeautyLibby RasmussenComment

No. One Kari Gran Lip Whip As someone who doesn't love wearing lipstick, I'm drawn to alternatives that are easy, light, and most importantly, pretty.  These Lip Whips from Kari Gran are so easy and actually last longer than most of the tinted chapsticks I typically use.  I love the peppermint in the whips and the colors are fantastic. 

No. Two Charcoal Teeth Whitening and Lemon Charcoal Water Charcoal is one of my top beauty obsessions at the moment.  A few weeks ago I wrote about the products I'm using to help get a whiter smile and charcoal is my #1 at the moment.  Typically every other day I use the Tuxedo charcoal powder when I brush my teeth.  It can get a little messy so I usually brush them in the shower. The raw coconut charcoal is the best for making my morning lemon charcoal water. It's great for teeth whitening and calms my stomach in the morning.  The charcoal fizzes a little, creating an seltzer-like water.  Best part, it's not gritty at all. 

No. Three Primally Pure Complexion Mist Sometimes you just need a pampering, which is exactly why I love using a floral complexion mist. This mist specifically, uses oils of ylang ylang (revitalizes skin and balances sebum secretions) and palmarosa (antibacterial and astringent) leaving my skin feeling really nourished and refreshed. It's really one of those small luxuries that I love having in my beauty routine.  

No. Four Blissoma Solar Repair Serum This year, I made a promise to myself in my 26 Before 26 List, #19 - Start Wearing Sunscreen Daily. In keeping this promise, I've started protecting my skin with sunscreen and repairing it with this facial solar repair serum.  

No. Five Acure Coconut + Argan Face Wipes  Try as I might to wash my entire face every single night, sometimes happy hours get the best of me and I can't possibly be bothered to do my whole nighttime skincare routine.  Which is why I love these Acure towelettes.  I keep them in my side table for those late (and lazy) nights and they smell amazing. I got these from Grove Collaborative and absolutely love them. 

No. Six  Hansderma Ice Roller  I've said it before and I'll say it again, I'm OBSESSED with ice rolling.  It has easily become my favorite part of my morning routine.  I love taking just 3-5 minutes every morning to relax and roll. Not sure about ice rolling, make sure to check out my post below on what it's all about!
