NARS The Multiple
From NARS Cosmetics , NARS Face , Blush
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.
In search of a substitute, I ventured into Sephora, where a sales associate recommended the Nars Multiple. I selected the Multiple in Maui, and although I'm pretty happy with it, I still prefer the Too Faced product. For one thing, although the Multiple can be used on eyelids, lips, and cheeks, I'm really only interested in it as a blush. I also prefer matte makeup, and the Maui Multiple is a bit too shimmery for my taste, even though the sales associate I spoke with said it was one of the less-shimmery shades. The product does glide on super smoothly and blends easily, but I don't think the color lasts as long as the Too Faced Flushed Blush stick. The Multiple is expensive, but I've had mine for a while now, and it this rate, it will probably last me the next 50 years, which justifies the high price.
I may try the Multiple in another shade and hope for the best, but in the meantime, I'm still going to keep searching for a better cream blush product.
