NARS Matte Multiple

The Multiple’ is one of NARS’s bestsellers:  a sensational glimmering highlighter, favourite of the pros for red carpet moments, great for adding a little ‘lift’ to brows and cheekbones… And this?  This is something else entirely:  completely matte (and can we just say, a little scary in the tube…?)

The reds and pinks definitely deliver a serious ‘pop’ of colour – but it’s actually the browns we’re loving.  We’re big fans of contour, used in the right way – and a sweep of the deeper shades here works brilliantly to define a jawline or a cheekbone, provided you blend well. (Brilliant before a photo shoot…)

We’ve a hunch come summer that on a well-moisturised face, these would also add a gorgeous touch of sun-kissed colour for those who are shimmer-averse – again, when blended well. (But we’re currently a little too pastry-esque to give that a go.)

François also advises dipping the product in water, and then smoothing a veil into skin.

Going to have a play with that, too.  Multiple ways to explore this – and we’re really looking forward to that.
