Cote Basque

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.

MAC Into the Pink & Just a Pinch Extra Dimension Blushes

Into the Pink

MAC Into the Pink Extra Dimension Blush ($28.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a light-medium pink with very subtle, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. At first, it seemed like it might have a more frosted shimmer to it, but as I applied and blended out the color, it yielded that same, glowing, luminous finish that I’ve come to expect from the formula. The blush had opaque pigmentation, but the softer consistency (that wasn’t dry or dusty!) made it easy to pickup less product on my brush for less coverage as well. The blush also blended out with ease, so if I felt like I over-applied, I could correct it. This shade wore well for almost nine hours before fading.

The Extra Dimension Blush formula is supposed to have “long-wearing colour with prismatic reflections” that wears for “10 hours.” The formula is typically very pigmented with a soft, smooth texture that’s firmer in the pan but not difficult to use–I had no issues grabbing color with even my softest brushes–and has no dustiness or powderiness in the pan. The blushes are usually blendable with a luminous glow on the cheeks that did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture. With MAC’s newly-added permanent shades, the wear time has ranged from eight to ten hours.

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.

Hard to Get

MAC Hard to Get Extra Dimension Blush ($28.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a deep brown with warm, reddish undertones and a pink sheen. I was nervous about this shade, as darker brown blushes are often difficult to apply and blend out, but this blended out quite nicely. It wasn’t quite as effortless as other shades in the range (but those have been particularly blendable!), but it was still a very easy blush to work with. It had rich, opaque pigmentation that had a luminous finish that did not accentuate my skin’s texture. The color wore well for ten hours on me.

Burberry No. 03 Pink Pearl Fresh Glow Highlighter ($68.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a soft, pale pink with warmer undertones and a pearly sheen. It had a noticeable sheen on the skin but did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture.

Burberry added two new shades to their highlighter range (and seemed to make two previously released shades permanent). The formula is supposed to have a “buildable” coverage that illuminates the skin. The formula is fairly pigmented, though the consistency was incredibly soft that it was prone to sheering out on the skin, so the effect was more semi-opaque in practice (unless you used a light hand). The highlighter wore well for eight hours on me.

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.
