Sorry for the fingerprints on these! As you can see, the packaging kinda attracts fingerprints!
You can see these are "well loved" LOL!
Here I am with another rave review: NARS Multiples!!! Love these!
Generally speaking, I love the idea of mulit-purpose products. NARS really delivers with these Multiples. These are blush/highlighter/lip/eye colors in one big fat stick.
The formula is somewhat creamy-but not moisturizing; and, I find that its best use is as a blush or highlighter. The product is just slightly too dry to be used on the lips on its own as a lipstick (but you can "make it work" with some gloss on top). As an eyeshadow, it wears "okay", but tends to crease on the lid. As a blush, or cheekbone/brow bone highlight...absolutely perfect!!! Totally love it as a blush/highlight.
- Now these are pricey, but they are HUGE. So, the product will last forever.
- I love the "portability" of stick blushes! Just toss into your purse for easy touch-ups.
- Great for travel too as you don't need any makeup brushes to apply.
- Easy to apply: Just swipe on or apply with fingers, blend, and that's it!
- Features sleek NARS packaging (I love the simplicity of the NARS black packaging with the cool texture and white letters. Sleek and simple).
- Downside: While the packaging is sleek and cool, it has that "texture" that can attract makeup dust/fingerprints over time.
I have 3 lovely shades:
Copacabana (the highlighter): I will start with my favorite Multiple! This is hands-down, my favorate cream highlighter. It is just the perfect champagne/pearl shade (with very a "glowy" shimmer) for my uber-pale skin. Gives great glow!!! Some highlighters just make you look glittery...not this one. We are talking the kind of glow that gets you those "you have good skin" compliments! I use when I am totally finished with my makeup...I just dab a bit on the tops of my cheekbones and sometimes my brown bone for a very glowy/beautiful look! I occasionally used it as a "wash" of color on my eyelids, but have experienced some creasing when I wear it on my lids. So, if you apply to your lids, do so with a light hand. I will totally purchase this again when I run out (if I ever do!) I have been using this forever and still have a TON of product left. So, you really get your moneys worth here!
A pretty plummy/purplish (mauve) pink. So pretty as a blush!!! I think this pinky shade is ideal for cool toned fair-skinned girls like myself. It applies very subtle. Swipe and blend and go! Beautiful! I also like this on the lips with a dab of gloss on top. Pretty! This one does have a bit of a "drier" texture than my other two multiples...but, I must mention that I have had this product forever so, it might have dried out a bit. I noticed this shade is no longer on the NARS website?
As the name implies, this pinky/brown stick gives a nice natural "beachy" warm glow as it has a bit of bronze in it. Very creamy stick. It applies and blends very well onto the cheeks. It looks so natural and pretty, and, well, just wearable! :) There is a very slight bronzy shimmer to this. I apply this with a light hand to my super pale skin.
Swatches: Okay, obviously you would blend these out on your cheeks. But, I wanted to
show you the color vividly. Left to right: Malibu, Copacabana, Antibes
Hope you enjoyed reading! These Multiples are great! If you find a shade that you truly love, they are worth the investment as they will last you forever!!! I really would like to try some more shades (especially the iridescent pink "Luxor"-has anyone out there tried that one?)
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog!
