NARS Anguilla Matte Multiple
NARS Anguilla Matte Multiple

NARS Anguilla Matte Multiple ($39.00 for 0.26 oz.) is described as a “ginger pink.” It’s a light-medium pink with warm, yellow undertones and a satin-matte finish. Hourglass Radiant Magenta (P, $35.00) is lighter. NARS Love (LE, $29.00) is darker, less pink. Physicians Formula Natural (P, $11.99) is more shimmery. Chanel Revelation (63) (P, $38.00) is brighter, pinker. See comparison swatches.

It has a near-matte finish that has enough to it (so hard to describe it as a sheen, as it is so subtle!) that it doesn’t look completely matte, but it won’t emphasize pores or skin imperfections as there’s no shimmer to the finish. It had excellent color payoff in a single pass, but it can be applied more sparsely for less coverage, as the formula has a velvety, silicone-like consistency that makes blending fairly easy. It can be applied wet for sheerer coverage from the start (drier application will yield more color payoff). As a blush, it wore well for seven hours before showing signs of fading. As a lip color, it lasted two and a half hours, and it was very drying and uncomfortable to wear, as it tended to cling and sink into lip lines over time. For more of an overview of the Matte Multiple formula, check out this post.

The Glossover




Keep in mind, the rating is a reflection of the product used on cheeks as well as on lips, and the formula is clingy and drying when worn on the lips, whereas it performs better as a cream blush. Depending on what you're looking for, you might bump up the grade (in your mind) if you only would wear it on cheeks, or drop the overall rating if you just wanted a lip product.

  1. Another too warm for me product. I find it’s kinda odd how different it looks on the lips vs the cheek.

    • I don’t think it’s really odd, since I’m not wearing it at 100% opaque intensity on cheeks – blended out – and my skin color is drastically different from my lip color! :)

  2. it is soooo very pretty! Looks tailor made for ur skintone!

  3. I definitely want to try one of these! And I like how it’s not complete matte.

    beautiful color! my question is not about this product, but which lip liner matches with MAC Rebel?

  5. I love this color, and it’s prettier on the lips than the other one you reviewed, but it does look rather drying.

  6. Yeah, These are really nice as standalone blushes! The color payoff is so intenseesp with deeper shades! They really should stop being marketed as multiple unless they can find a formula that performs well on lips too! But i am really loving the range as a cheek product!

  7. This looks great as a blush! On the lips, not so much. Since the price went up, I’ll probably pass on these unless there’s a really special one.

  8. This one looks very soft and natural!

    It really is such a shame they didn’t bother with the formula being actually nice on lips though…

  9. I love this color! However, my skin is kind of oily and I always get nervous about cream blushes. Has anyone with oily skin used Nars’ Multiple?

    This looks so beautiful on your cheeks, Christine!

    I’m most likely going to cave & pick this one up. It’s sooo pigmented, especially for such a light shade, and it doesn’t read particularly warm-toned on my skin. Maybe I can find a way to depot it…

  12. Not quite matte but yet no ugly pore emphasizing? Perfect! 😀

  13. I like the look of it on the cheeks!

    Hi :) it’s really pretty and I would love it…. but I had Chanel Inspiration cream blush for Christmas and I’m wondering if its similar when blended on the cheek? Is it only a bit darker than this? Thanks :)

  15. This looks super pretty on your cheeks Christine!

  16. Oksy

    Haw it is possible to find products which you mark as ”product 10/10”, or ”9/10”, by category, for example i want to find best blush by ”10/10”, and etc.

  17. It actually looks great on your lips, Christine! Too bad it’s drying!

    It is the same shade on both full-face photos, right? Only because the first picture appears more pink than the brown on the second picture. :)
