Review: NARS The Multiple


NARS The Multiple in Orgasm

Product Info from NARS:
The original multi-purpose stick for eyes, cheeks, lips and body. Its unique, creamy formula blends effortlessly to provide sheer color for creating shimmering accents, contours or dynamic highlights on all skin tones. Creates perfect, glowing complexions and is conveniently designed for fail-proof application.


RETAIL PRICE: Php 2,250.00
I'm lucky I got this from swap and its still good as new.

WEIGHT: 14 grams

SHADES : Available in 13 shades.

PROS:
* pigmented unlike the Powder blush version that barely shows up when swatched.
* non-sticky unlike MAC cream blushes
* easy to apply; glides on smoothly
* can be layered with any powder blush without looking heavy/cakey.
* makes me look GLOWING! This doesn't look too shimmery once applied on the cheeks.
* average staying power (about 4-5 hrs)
* can be used as blush or highlighter

CONS:
* it creases when used as eyeshadow (even with eye primer underneath)
* expensive! It contains only 14 grams of product.


ADDICTION FACTOR:
This product is nice to have but I can live without it...
If you're looking for a cheaper alternative, I read Nichido stick in South Beach is a dupe of Orgasm multiple... the best part?! It only costs less than Php 200 bucks!


RATING : 3/5

NARS Orgasm powder blush vs. The Multiple in Orgasm


Swatches
I noticed that Orgasm multiple looks more pink whereas the powder blush has more gold flecks to it.


Another shot

Are you a fan of stick/cream blushes?
What's your fave?


Till next time,

ELF Studio Line Blusher and Bronzer palette contains a good dupe for NARS orgasm as well!

I am definitely adding Nichido stick in South Beach. Thank you!

such a pretty shade, it does remind me of my ELF Studio blush and bronzer duo.

I'm actually looking for a nice cream blush. I currently have the ELF All over cover stick in Pink Lemonade but it's a little too pink for my skin tone.

I'm so checking out that Nichido stick in South beach. Thanks for sharing sis!

thanks for your review! your review confirmed my impression that the O multiple isn't up to expectations :O

Catmare said...

I haven't tried cream blushes. I guess it's because I think it might be difficult to blend them. IDK. lol. maybe I should go and try one soon! :)

REINA said...

I guess I'll try this. I don't like orgasm powder blush as it looks orange-y on me.
