Product Review: NARS Matte Multiples.

Monday, March 24, 2014

I haven't done a product review in months, and I was bored waiting for my boyfriend to get up so i decided to do just a quick little review of these beauties.

I bought two shades, Exumas, and Cappadoce. They run at $39 a piece and are only 0.26 oz of product, which is not a lot. It's a bit of a bummer that NARS chose to sell these Matte Multiples at the same price as their original multiples that are almost double the product. The original multiples are $39 and are 0.50 oz of product. What are you going to do though? People still buy them, including me.

Anyways, the price is hefty, but the pay-out is beautiful. I use both of mine every single day. They are great for contouring and just giving your face a great pop of color...

Mine are a tad beat-up. The packaging is amazing, but if you throw them around a bit into a make-up bag or something, the packaging looks wearable. 

 As you can see, I have some dents and scratches on them, haha. They are definitely thinner and shorter than the original multiples. 

Swatches. The beautiful pink-apricot is Exumas and the bronze color is Cappadoce. They both have great pigmentation.

This is me with literally no make-up on. It may look like I have some eyeliner on but that's probably from last night because these new organic make-up wipes I have kind of suck. Anyways, no make-up.

 This is after I put on JUST the matte multiples. No concealer, foundation or anything. I put Exumas on the apples of my cheeks and up near my temples and blended with a beauty blender. Then, I put Cappadoce on either side of my temple, underneath my cheek bones to my ear, and a bit on either side of my nose. You can really see the difference. They made me look like an actual living being and not a corpse as I did in the previous picture. 

All in all, these multiples are great. They blend beautifully and have a great finish. I love how they don't appear shiny on the face and they are extremely pigmented. The price is a tad annoying, but it's something most of us (including myself) are willing to look past.
