Nars - Lets Multiply

I have been trying to be good and not spend money on makeup when Nars Christmas collection came out I decided to see what Nars products I had at home and did I "need" anything (OK so we all know that my make up shopping has more to do with greed than need).  This is how I discovered that I have multiple Nars Multiples - (see what I did there?).  If your not familiar with Nars Multiples they are creamy sticks that you can use in on multiple places (see what they did there?). 

So here is what Nars have to say:
The original multi-purpose stick for eyes, cheeks, lips and body. Its unique, creamy formula blends effortlessly to provide sheer color for creating shimmering accents, contours or dynamic highlights on all skin tones. Creates perfect, glowing complexions and is conveniently designed for failproof application.

So what do I think?
Nars do not lie the Multiples are flipping brilliant.  I really love using the multiples they are easy to use, so creamy, smooth and bendable (draw a line across your face and blend), usually come in beautiful colours and are convenient to use.  I primarily use mine as face colour, I don't tend to use it on my lips and have so far never used it on my eyes.  They leave beautiful colour and also can give a sheen to your skin. They are versatile, easy to use and fantastic.  I happen to love the shades that can be used as a bronzer as they give a natural pretty effect.

I have two minor gripes with this product the first is that the packaging can get very grubby (this is not really a big deal - but mine have not been anywhere exciting and they are durty), the second and major gripe is the price... they cost €41.00... that's right 41 flipping euro.  While the product has great staying power and the stick lasts ages its still not worth €41.00 especially since they are £29.00 - unfair euro pricing once again.
Here are the Multiples that I have: The names will be in picture above and swatch picture in the picture underneath.










Turks & Caicos was a limited edition summer colour (perfect for summer) its sheer and gives almost a translucent veil of colour - its looking a bit dodgy in the swatch because I haven't used it in a while.

I do love the multiples they are €39.00 on ASOS (if you purchase through Stirling it works out at better value).  If your looking into buying a creme stick blush and are on a budget  I would look into buying one of the NYC Blush able Creme Sticks first

  2. Quite the collection you have Mags. Jealous, what? Me?

    Copacabana looks like it'd make a gorgeous highlighter.

  3. I recently won my first Nars product and I am Loving it! Its the Orgasm Blush, and I am keen to try out something else from their range, but my budget will only go as far as the NYX ones for the moment!
