I’ve been meaning to do this makeup review forever~! I bought my first Multiple stick almost 2years ago and i LOVED it. I kept telling myself to do a review each time i bought a new Multiple stick but i never got round to it. Next thing i knew..i had quite a few [not that many but enough to do a review XD]
First up, we have the original version “The Multiple”
Official spill from NARS: “The Multiple is the original all-in-one, cream-to-powder, multi-purpose makeup stick. With fingertip application, The Multiple highlights, sculpts, and warms eyes, cheeks, lips, and body in an array of shades from sheer accents to mauve and bronze.”
Clockwise from TOP LEFT: Tuomota, Orgasm, Luxor and Copacabana
Tuomota – i use this for contouring! The color is quite dark so i have to use this sparingly.
Orgasm – pretty much the same as the powder blush version everyone knows. i figured i needed at least one multiple that was a normal blush color and how can i go wrong with this cult fave?
Luxor – i use this for highlighting. I use it under my eyes to brighten that area! This is a MUST BUY.
Copacabana – i used to use this under my eyes too but uh once i bought luxor..i stopped. i just use this for my cheekbones now.
Note: i apply these directly to my face. i dont use my fingertips but i do use a sponge to even out the edges/marks.
Next, we have “The Multiple Tint”
Official spill from NARS: “Bright yet translucent tints give cheeks and lips a sheer buildable pop of color. The multi-purpose tool can be worn alone for flush cheeks or stained lips. For a bolder effect it can be layered with other NARS face and lip products.”
The biggest difference between these and the normal Multiples, is that these apply like a gel whereas the multiples apply like a cream. Does this make sense? XD
These were limited edition products from NARS this summer and i am not sure if they are still available instore. But i did see them on the NARS cosmetics website so you might be able to buy it there.
These two beautiful Multiple Tints came from two very special people to me.
First up, we have the Multiple Tint in “Turks & Caicos”
This was a birthday gift from Miss Yasumi who is dear like a sister to me!
Turks & Caicos is a fabulous color. In the tube, its looks neon orange but once you apply it, its like a perfect peachy skintone.
The next Multiple Tint is “Beverly Hills”
This came from my Ane aka my sister, who bought it for me when she went Hong Kong for a holiday.
I adore this color and its my go-to color when i am slightly under the weather or wanting to look more awake in the morning! It gives a gorgeous flushed look! Though this item was released in summer, i can see myself wearing it a lot more in winter!!
i looove these multiple tubes [both the original type and the tints]. They apply smoothly, dont flake off and gives a nice finish. Each tube also lasts a really long time! And for someone like me who has had several blushes break during her constant travel, these are perfect. However they can be a bit chunky to travel with, so i decided to invest in a Multiple Duo
I wanted a color for highlight and a color for contouring.
I love the HUGEE mirror it comes with.
Sadly i havent started using this yet as i want to finish using my Copacabana Multiple Stick first. <– i am almost done using it. So i dont have any swatches for you but once i do, i will post them ^^
Any questions? Comments? Fave multiple stick you think i should check out? [Reccomendations are welcome as i am always keen to grow my collection of Multiples!!]
In boring real life news, i am officially sick. I even have the day off today hence the early blog entry. I appear to have caught the cold that is going around lately here in Japan. I suppose its due to the change of weather? I havent fallen ill in ages [ok for 6 months <-- but tats a long time to me] so this change of pace is a bit weird to me. I've been all go go go last couple of weeks as things are busy around here but i guess now i have to rest afterall. So to the rest of you who are still on the go, take a break! Cos if you dont, your body will protest, the way mine is doing right now XD <-- this happens to me on a regular basis. So i really need to learn to take my own advice hahah Stay healthy! XOXO Yumeko
