More on the new NARS Matte Multiple, a multi-purpose makeup stick that can be used on the lips and cheeks with a matte finish.

Like the original Multiple, the Matte Multiple comes in a portable black tube with a twist-up design. Although the tube looks just a bit thinner, you only get 0.26 oz of product, which is half as much as the 0.50 oz with the original.

The formula is also different. Unlike the original which can be used on the eye, cheek, lip and body, the Matte Multiple is only meant for the cheek and lip. It can be used dry for more intensity or wet for a sheerer effect. A great way to create dimension as suggested by NARS, is to use it wet over the high points of the cheek for a sheer veil of color, then dry underneath the cheekbone.

Color selection wise, there are a total of 7 that ranged from pinks and corals to bronzes. I had reviewed the bronzer shades in my last post so here are the remaining 4.

* Anguilla is a light baby pink with yellow undertones and the lightest color in the whole collection.
* Exumas is an orangy apricot.
* Siam is a super bright cool-toned poppy red. It looked really intense in the tube but blended to a softer red that created the perfect flush for my skintone.
* Laos is a rose coral that looks like cherry Chapstick.

The colors were all very wearable and doubled nicely as both blush and lip colors on my NC30 skintone. But they felt creamy and glided onto my cheeks easily, they were not moisturizing enough for my dry lips and clung onto flakes. The colors were also very pigmented, in fact, more so than some of the regular Multiples. Plus they dried off quickly to a matte finish that stayed on for 8 hours straight.

Overall, NARS Matte Multiple is nice investment that works best as blush and bronzer.

NARS Matte Multiple Review, Swatches and Photos Part I

March 24th, 2014

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

This spring, NARS brings us Matte Multiple, a new multi-purpose makeup stick that can be used on the lips and cheeks with a matte finish.

NARS Altai, Coppadoce and Vientiane Matte Multiples

Like the original Multiple, the Matte Multiple comes in a portable black tube with a twist-up design. Although the tube looks just a bit thinner, you only get 0.26 oz of product, which is half as much as the 0.50 oz with the original.

Another difference lies in the formula. Unlike the original which can be used on the eye, cheek, lip and body, the Matte Multiple is only meant for the cheek and lip. It can also be used dry for more intensity or wet for a sheerer effect. A great way to create dimension as suggested by NARS, is to use it wet over the high points of the cheek for a sheer veil of color, then dry underneath the cheekbone.

Color selection wise, there are a total of 7 that would work as blush, bronzer and lip colors on various skintones. In this review, I will be focusing on the bronzer colors.

Altai is the lightest bronzer shade in the collection. Described as a “rose bronze”, the color is a medium brown with pinkish undertones. On my NC30 skin, I can totally see this as a blush/contouring shade and even a nude lip color.
Coppadoce is a darker brown with golden undertones. It is the darkest shade out of all 7 Matte Multiples and definitely a bronzer shade for me.
Vientiane is almost identical to Coppadoce, except a tinge lighter with slightly warmer coppery undertones. I couldn’t really tell the difference between the two on my skin.

The Matte Multiples felt very creamy and application was a breeze! I loved that you could just swipe this directly onto the skin, blend with a brush and be good to go. The colors were also very pigmented, in fact, more so than some of the regular Multiples. Plus they dried off quickly to a matte finish that stayed on for 8 hours straight.

Overall, NARS Matte Multiple is a quick, easy-to-use product that will deliver results. And at $39 a pop, this is definitely a good investment.
