I fell in love with this colour and absolutely had to buy it, even the expensive price didn't sway me, though I can see it affecting a lot of people. It's about $38US and $46CDN unfortunatley I had to pay the latter.
Now when applying you're suppose to to just swipe it on with your fingers, which probably works very well, but as with most of the products I use, I like the be able to double it and use it for me and my makeup kit (the price doesn't really sway me to buy one for each) so I spatulate it out of the tube, which has proven very difficult. The consistency is very strange as it's basically powder suspended in liquid, but this has made it very difficult to use for my makeup kit. Even with the appropriate brush it balls up and is hard to apply. I'm debating whether or not just to use it on me as it would be a lot easier. All in all it's almost been a total failure for my kit which breaks my heart since the colour is just so amazing, but I have not given up yet as I am constantly mixing it with other products.
Its very sheer and shimmery and I find for my preference I have to build up a lot on to be satsfied, but as I said before this colour is just so amazing and once on looks fantastic.
I am also in love with the colour Luxor and will probably end up buying it as I would have bought that before Orgasm but Sephora was out of stock of Luxor.
Overall wonderful colours, though they are pretty expensive (as the majority of Nars products seem to be) But if you are looking for a sheer shimmery blush or whatever (as it can be used for an array of things) then I would definitely recommend this for personal use but not so much for kit use. And if like me you love the colour but aren't totally stoked on the sheerness/consistency then consider the powder blush version of this.
I've got Nars The Multiple in Copacabana two weeks ago after playing with it at the Nars counter. In the strong artificial department store light it looks rather glimmery, but in the normal office light or natural day time light it looks very soft and quite natural, if you can say this about a highlighter. I love the easynes of the application, especially in the morning, when I have only 10 min for the entire make up procedure! And if the time was not enough, I just throw it into my cosmetic purse and put it on my cheek bones later. It's cream-to-powder finish is amazing, it does not smear foundation or blush applyed before. Lovely lovely product suiting even for highligting beginners like me.
the consistency of this product does not work on my lids or lips very well, however as a blish or highlighter it is amazing my skin is oily and this stuff stays put and leaves behimd a beautiful glow, its a little pricey but its nars so its worth it (:
I swear that illuminators are God's go to beauty product, haha. I'm obsessed with using them and Nars has perfected the art of illuminating. The Copacabana is perfect for every skin tone. I put some on my cheek bones, eyelids, and i use it to contour my nose. It's such a versatile product and can range from subtle to dramatic. It's a little pricey, but it does last and soo worth it :)
I figured this, mascara, and a powder would be all I would need in my handbag. The cream to powder product can be used on eyes lips, and cheeks. On my lips, I feel it a bit dryer than usual. I also need a primer and a gloss for the right effect. Moreover, I need a primer when I use this on my lids to keep it there. It’s fantastic for my cheek area. Looking back on my largely unused purchase, I realize that it’s a luxury product that can compliment one’s beauty arsenal; not be the foundation to it.
I am in LOVE with Riviera. The colour is so perfect for my skin tone, and it goes on so well. I use it everyday, and it's always one of the top 10 products that i recommend to all my friends.
I accidentally bought this at a makeup boutique in Minnesota. I was meaning to buy Malibu, but the woman helping us got it mixed up... and a few other things in our purchase as well. ( A very expensive, and not so wonderful experience.) I don't like the color, It is very muddy, and makes my skin look dull and cake . It is dry and slightly gritty, and there are very big pieces of glitter in it. But,I tried the Maui on in the store the color was beautiful, and it was very smooth. I think I will try NARS multiples again, just not in a more suiting color!
This product is just okay for me. Yes, it looks nice on the cheeks, it goes on smoothly and blends nice and evenly giving you a really beautiful cheek color.
BUT. I would not use this product on my lips or eyes for that matter. It is a cream to powder formula making a rather dry finish that I can not imagine wearing well on the lips. On the eyes....maybe, but I'm just not thrilled with the idea of using it as eyeshadow.
So, using it only for my cheeks doesn't really make it worth the HUGE price tag. I'll stick to my normal blushes for half the price.
Beauties!! This is perfect for those days of running errands, when you don't have time to do much but put your hair up and go! This gives your face a beautiful peachy glow and it goes a long way! I use it on the eyes, lips and cheeks! Of course you can use this for a night on the town as well, but when I'm on the go, I always go for my "multiple".
