First Look at Nars Matte Multiples

February 14, 2014

Nars 2014 Matte Multiples in Anguilla, Laos, Exumas, Siam, Cappadoce, Vientiane, Altai Swatches

Arriving in Singapore in March 2014, these sturdy multi-purpose sticks will finally come in a matte formula.

They are named after exotic locales, as with many pieces in the current Nars The Multiple range. From left to right, they are: Anguilla, Laos, Exumas, Siam, Cappadoce, Vientiane, Altai.

I loved their pillowy softness at first swipe; the velvet-matte texture feels silky-smooth on the skin. They build up more creamily with added layers but are pretty pigmented with a single swipe.

With this new matte finish, we will have yet another quick product for contouring. The convenient stick form of the bronze/brown ones will help you to swiftly achieve a defined jawline, as well as bring out your cheekbones. (Use them sparingly, of course.)

The blush hues are particularly pleasing – they offer a natural-looking flush when blended out. I like how the finish is forgiving on older skin which has a tendency to catch shimmer with facial lines. The current sparklier sticks aren’t ideal on mature skin because of this but the new ones would be perfect!

I don’t have many details on them yet but here’s what I know:

  • They will launch in March 2014, together with the NARSissist Eye Palette, a 15-shade eyeshadow palette that celebrates the brand’s 20th anniversary.
  • They will probably retail at S$60, the current price of a Multiple here.
  • I believe they will be permanent – and a happy addition – to the range. :)

I already have my heart set on a couple and am looking forward to picking up at least one when they arrive! ♥

    I have yet to try a multiple because I was afraid they would be too creamy and shimmery on my oily skin. I like the swatches you have made, I will definitely check these out. Laos and Exumas look like they might be right up my alley. Which colours interested you? I can’t wait to see the 15 shade palette myself, they look awesome.

    Thank you for the swatches.
    Siam looks absolutely amazing! I hope the formula is better than the rgular multiples that are a bit too drying on my lips.

    BEAUTIFUL! I’ve been waiting for these. For contouring especially!
    What do you think most resembles NARS Laguna among the browns? :)

      I’m not sure, Shari but I think you can find comparison swatches online. :) I only had a brief look at them.
