NARS Cote Basque Sheer Pop Multiple ($39.00 for 0.50 oz.) is a medium, pink-coral with fine, golden pearl. The consistency was smooth, more emollient than the traditional Multiple formula (which has a more velvety, silicone-like feel to me), so I felt like it yielded a more stained-like look applied to the cheeks.

The new, limited edition formula is supposed to be a “buildable formula that delivers sheer, high-impact color on lips and cheeks,” and it’s also said another way: “pairs vivid color with a weightless touch,” which seems to suggest that the “sheer” quality is more with respect to the feel of the product than the coverage. That being said, the coverage seems designed to be “buildable” but still “vivid.” It had semi-opaque, buildable coverage that was also blendable enough that I could sheer out the coverage to semi-sheer, if desired. It applied better over bare skin, but it was workable over liquid/creams, though it looked patchy over powders. It lasted for eight hours as a blush.

On the lips, it was more comfortable to wear than the original Multiple formula (the additional slip helped!), and the less velvety feel made it appear more like a lip stain. The color lasted for three hours and didn’t actually stain, though.

NARS Jo Multiple Tint ($39.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a light-medium pink-coral with a natural sheen. It had sheer pigmentation, which was buildable to semi-sheer (two to three layers), but it wasn’t a product that could be layered too much or else it started to feel almost tacky and too slick on the skin. It was easiest to use on bare skin, where it had the most noticeable tint to me, but it was blendable over liquid/cream base products. It wasn’t as foolproof to use over powder.

The new, limited edition formula is supposed to be a “sheer, tinted format” with “natural-looking color” for “lips and cheeks.” Worth noting that while the physical size didn’t seem different, the tube contains about half as much as the regular Multiple formula (0.23 oz. compared to 0.50 oz.). I think this would be more suitable for someone with a lighter skin tone, as it got lost on mine as I blended it out. The consistency was smooth, blendable, and had moderate slip, and it did not dry down, so it always looked slightly wet on the skin. This made for a more comfortable lip product, and it looked like a tinted balm on my lips (not too much shine) and was non-drying. It wore well for six hours as a blush and three hours as a lip product.

Cours du Soir

NARS Cours du Soir Kohliner ($26.00 for 0.01 oz.) is a dark, mossy green with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in one stroke, which was buildable to opaque coverage with two to three passes. The consistency was smooth, creamy without being too wet, and comfortable to use on the lower lash line and waterline.

The Kohliner formula is supposed to be a “creamy eyeliner that is “buildable” and “blendable” that can be used on the lash line as well as on the waterline. The description seemed rather apt, and I like that they described it as buildable. It was definitely an eyeliner that could be smudged if done so shortly after applying (I would apply it to one eye at a time, if you wanted to smudge or diffuse the edges). On me, the color wore well for six hours on my waterline and eight hours on my lower lash line.

NARS Jeanette Multiple Tint ($39.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a brighter, medium pinky-red with cooler undertones and a natural finish. It had semi-sheer pigmentation that was buildable to medium coverage, but the more emollient texture made it the type of product that sheered out considerably once you started to blend it out. It worked better on bare skin or over liquid/cream base products and was less ideal over powder.

The new, limited edition formula is supposed to be a “sheer, tinted format” with “natural-looking color” for “lips and cheeks.” Worth noting that while the physical size didn’t seem different, the tube contains about half as much as the regular Multiple formula (0.23 oz. compared to 0.50 oz.). The texture never fully dried down on the skin, so it retained that dewy finish even hours after applied, though it only lasted around six and a half hours as a blush (three hours as a lip color). The additional slip in the formula made it more comfortable to wear as a lip color than the original Multiples, which are thicker and can almost crumble on the lips.

This will launch on April 15th.

NARS Alice Multiple Tint ($39.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a medium, coral-red with warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-sheer, buildable color coverage (up to semi-opaque) that had a slightly wet finish and looked more like a cheek stain.

The new, limited edition formula is supposed to be a “sheer, tinted format” with “natural-looking color” for “lips and cheeks.” Worth noting that while the physical size didn’t seem different, the tube contains about half as much as the regular Multiple formula (0.23 oz. compared to 0.50 oz.). The texture of the Multiple Tint was moderately emollient with a dewier finish that never dried down fully, so the wear seemed to be shorter at a mere six hours. It worked best applied over bare skin or liquid/cream products and was more challenging to use over powder. It felt like a thin balm in terms of consistency as a lip product, and it lasted three and a half hours on my lips and was non-drying.

This will launch on April 15th.

Old Church Street

NARS Old Church Street Velvet Duo Eyehadow ($36.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a new, limited edition duo (and formula) that launches April 15th online. The compact is the same size as other NARS’ eyeshadow duos, but the actual quantity is slightly less at 0.10 oz. (compared to 0.14 oz.). The formula felt less powdery and thin compared to most of NARS’ eyeshadows, which I found to be an upgrade overall. This particular duo featured a light, golden copper and blackened teal. The darker shade could have been better, though it was workable.
