    So far, all but Laos & Siam have caught my attention… Do you know if these will be permanent, and/or available elsewhere? Otherwise, I’ll just have to drag myself to the NARS Boutique… I think a few of these may be useful for contouring, but I really want to try them in person.

    • These are permanent, and the press release only listed NARS Boutiques and

        Well, at least I’ll have some time to at least wait for swatches and/or reviews, if I need to order online. In spite of my massive haul this week, there are still a few other items I’ve been on the fence about, so this will at least push me to revisit those, LOL!

    • dstiger

      I heard they will be available at Nordstorm on March 1st too!

      • xamyx

        I just read somewhere else they’ll be available at other NARS retailers Aprilm15, along with the rest of the Summer collection.

        I think I’ve narrowed it down to 3: Altai, Anguilla, & Cappadoce.

        • xamyx

          I just found 4 of 7 in Sephora/JCP, and swatched Vientiane & Altai, both of which are very warm-toned… Anguilla is very pretty, but would be best suited for very fair, cooler-toned types, and not something I feel a need to splurge on ATM. Laos was also available, but being obviously warmer, I didn’t bother to try it.

          All were very pigmented, and seemed to melt right into the skiin, so the quality is there, but just not what I’m looking for. The 2 bronzers were too similar to Tuomota, which I have, and aren’t the best for contouring. I still have Cappadoce to try, but I’m not too hopeful.

    If Altai is as muted as it looks, it could be a really strong contender for fair-skinned contouring. I hope these do appear at Sephora, etc.

  3. Reehana

    I wonder if the darker ones could be used for contouring. I’ve been looking for a good cream (matte) contour product, might have to check this one out!

  4. You can bet I’ll be getting a couple of these!

  5. Kelsey

    On Sephora’s website, these are (were? I saw them a couple days ago up there but now they’re no longer on the website) listed as being the same price as the regular multiples, but with only about half the product (0.26 oz vs. 0.50). :/

    • xamyx

      The formula is different, so they may be more pigmented than the others, meaning less product used. Before I pass judgment on the price, I want to check out the formula. There may be a higher pigment-to-filler ratio.

  6. This is the most amazing thing I have seen all day! I can’t wait for this collection!

  7. I hav a feeling that these are going to be sooooooooo drying on the lips

    • Roo

      I laughed when I read it’s hydrating for lips. I can’t imagine that this new matte version will be any less drying than the regular version.

  8. Valerie C.

    I’m buying for sure! These look interesting.

  9. Varika

    The fifth one down looks really pretty! I wonder how Altai, Vientiane, and Cappadoce are going to be “bronze” and matte at the same? 😉 I hope you review these! I’m actually pretty excited for this because I like the idea of a stick blush.

  10. I wonder if these will be good for contouring?

      From what I’ve swatched, Altai & Vientiane, unless you are *extremely* warm-toned, then they won’t be… Those 2 are very yellow.

  11. I’m quite excited to see matte ones – there’s a bit too much shimmer in a lot of Nars’ cheek products for me, considering I already blind people when hit by direct sunlight 😛

    They do look largely warm toned, however – I can’t wait to see them in action!

  12. Oh gosh, that bright red… going to be a hard one to pass up!

  13. NARS has reminded me that I cannot read the word ‘slam’ without getting Space Jam stuck in my head. Bless you NARS.

    Can’t wait!

    Oh I really want to have a couple of these and like them. I am looking at Cappaduce and the poppy red color.

  16. These are intriguing. I never invested in the other ones because of the shimmer, but these seem like they would be great to travel with. We shall see!

    The NARS multiple is one of my favorite things in my small makeup collection. These looks like some great additions. I’m eyeing Anguilla for summer.

    Original NARS Multiples are $39 for 0.50 oz., and these new Matte Multiples are $39 for 0.26 oz. First Tarte, now NARS. Ugh.

    • xamyx

      These are sooooo much more pigmented, though! You barely need to tap these against your skin, so these should last about as long as the others.

  19. Siam looks gorge! I wonder will it look good as a blush on my NC 15-20 yellowish face? ;-D

  20. I can’t wait for my Sephora order to arrive! I purchased Altai and was faced with a hard choice between Anguilla and Laos! Can’t wait!
