NARS Matte Multiples

This post has been a long time in the making! As soon as I first saw these pop up on blogs a few months back, I was committed to owning a least one or two of my own. NARS is a brand that I don't have too many products, so this was a very justified purchase in my books!

In case you don't know, the NARS Matte Multiples come in six shades; three contouring shades and three that are gorgeous pops of colour that can be used on cheeks and lips. I went for Vientiane, the middle contour shade I believe, and the Laos, a gorgeous rose/coral colour.

I definitely get the most use out of Laos. It is the first cream blush formula that I 100% love - I've always had some kind of gripe with cream formulas on the cheeks, but the matte finish works so well for me and blends super well over powder. So topping up throughout the day is not a problem at all. As for using it on the lips, I don't really do this, but I'm sure it will come in handy when (if) I'm travelling, everyone loves a good multi-purpose product!

As for the contour shade, Vientiane, I don't get as much use out of this. Although, that is definitely not surprising as I don't contour everyday. I actually quite like to use it for an all over bronzed glow (I dot it lightly around my face before buffing in foundation), and on the cheeks for a lovely bronzy/blush. I can work with it as a contour shade, but it is slightly too on the orange/warm side to be the best contour shade for my skin. 

In short, formulas of these matte multiples are fab! I will keeping an eye out to see if any new shades hit the scene. Although, the one downside to these is the price, £30 is an investment! So as much as I love them, I would definitely recommend a 'try before you buy' at your local NARS stockist if you can!
