Hello everyone! I am sure everyone has heard of this product. This was gifted to me about 2 years ago, I think and it stayed in my 'make up I never use but is too expensive to throw away' box I keep on the top-shelf of my bathroom. Recently, I have been needing a little more of a glow so I busted this baby out.
The concept behind the product: You may have seen people use their lipstick as blush, this is exactly what the multiple is- a lipstick and blush hybrid.
The multiple I received is in their infamously awkward, yet hyped shade 'orgasm', which suits a variety of skin tones.
The texture of this is great, it is blendable, buildable, long-wear and pigmented. However, it is far too dry for the lips. Over a gloss or moisturizing product it could work, but on its own it will highlight every little crack or flake of skin!
By applying some of this to my finger and then dabbing it onto my eyelids, it creates a nice subtle shimmer, even over other eyeshadow colors. The blush color only comes off onto the skin if you rub it on.
The cons of this product are definitely the packaging. As with most NARS products, the contents of your make up bag gravitate towards the surface of this and are impossibly hard to remove.
In the picture below you can see how large the glitter is. For a night time look this is fine, but during the day I personally end up looking like a glittery mess. The rest of my face needs to be extremely matte in order for this to work. By dabbing the stick onto the top of my cheek bones I can get a nice highlighting effect though.
Overall, this isn't really a multi-purpose product since it is SO GLITTERY. The shade is lovely, but the blush may be a better pick for me personally. I would not repurchase this even though I do love the formula.
What have your experiences with multi-purpose products been? What do you recommend?
