NARS Cappadoce Matte Multiple
NARS Cappadoce Matte Multiple

NARS Cappadoce Matte Multiple ($39.00 for 0.26 oz.) is described as a “golden bronze.” It’s a medium-dark, orange-toned brown with strong, warm orange-yellow undertones and a semi-matte finish. Guerlain Moyen Brunettes (05) (LE, $75.00) is lighter, less warm-toned. MAC Exotic Ember (LE, $25.00) is darker, more shimmery. MAC Hibiscus Kiss Bronzer (LE, $25.00) is lighter. Clarins Splendours (LE, $35.00) is lighter. MAC Billionaire Bronze (LE, $29.50) is darker, shimmery. Le Metier de Beaute Sun Drenched (P, $55.00) is very similar but a powder product. See comparison swatches.

It was intensely pigmented, so there should be no trouble getting true-to-tube color! A little goes quite a long way, so I would recommend using a stippling brush to initially apply and build up the color. Depending on your skin tone, it may be a bronzer or contour shade (it seems a little warm to be a true contour, but it will depend on your natural undertones and coloring). To get a sheerer result, apply with a wet brush or sponge. The consistency was just lightly creamy and felt very silicone-like with a velvety, smooth texture. It was moderately drying (though slightly less drying than other shades) when worn on lips, and the color itself lasted for four hours. On cheeks, the color wore well for seven and a half hours before showing signs of fading. For more of an overview of the Matte Multiple formula, check out this post.

  1. I wish they had a matte bronze multiple that wasn’t orange-toned! It looks great on your cheeks, but I’m not loving it on the lips.

  2. WOW, that’s dark and very yellow/bronze. I’ll pass.

    Worn on lips is too brown unless your skintone is medium-dark to dark.. I agree with you.. They should create a cool toned brown to contour! It would be a must have!

  4. I love this, but I think it might look weird on me because I’m so fair.

  5. Christine do you think this can be a good contour shade for NC42 or do you find it will be too warm and dark? :-)

    Despite the whole idea behind the Nars Multiple, I feel like they only work best on either on the cheeks OR the lips. As a product for “multiple” use..I’m not feeling it.
    Great review anyways!

    Wow I would have never thought that it’d look nice on the lips! Not gonna lie, I’m kind of digging it!

  10. oh WOW!!!!!! Gorgeous!!!!!

  11. This would be really nice in the summer, think it would be a bit too dark for me. I’m an NC25 in the winter and NC30 in the summer.

    Oh Nars! If you knew you were gonna do darker bronze-y shades, why not go all the way? I mean, you cater for deeper skin tones in your foundation, for heaven’s sake. lol. I really, really wanted this (or at least one of them) to be darker so a brown girl like me could try to use it as a contour. Alas! It wasn’t meant to be lol. I guess I’ll have to swatch it to see what it could potentially do for my MAC NW43/45 equivalent skin.
