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! ♥
