NARS Puerto Vallarta Multiple
NARS Puerto Vallarta Multiple

NARS Puerto Vallarta Multiple ($39.00 for 0.50 oz.) is described as a “shimmering tangerine.” That description is right on the money–it’s a brightened, tangerine orange with a soft gold shimmer-sheen with warm undertones. MAC Blazing Haute is softer and lighter, plus it is a powder. NARS Gina is darker. MAC Solar Ray is slightly redder and more shimmery. Illamasqua Lover is a touch more orange and matte. As a lip color, it is similar to MAC Delectable (less frosted), NARS Biscayne Park (no shimmer), and NARS Isola Bella (darker, no shimmer).

The Multiple had good color payoff; it starts off as semi-sheer but is a buildable product, so if you want a little more opacity, it’s possible without having to pile on the product. It has a creamy, slightly silicone-like consistency that glides over the skin well. On cheeks, it was blendable and resulted in an added warmth and sheen that didn’t emphasize pores. On lips, it was uncomfortable to wear, drying, and had a dry, frosted finish. It also tends to gather and pill on the lips. When I wore it on cheeks, it lasted for six and a half hours, but it started looking patchy afterwards, and it lasted two and a half hours on lips before it mostly gathered into lip lines.

I like the concept of the Multiple, but I find it really performs best as a cheek product or brow bone highlighter–it is always disappointing as a lip product, and as a result, the overall rating for the Multiple always is lowered significantly! ┬áSo, with that being said, if you only want to wear it as a blusher, then it’s better than it appears at a glance.

It doesn't wear too well on me, and it's hard to wear as a lip product, as it is drying and has an oddly uncomfortable texture.

    I wish this product preformed better on the lips because the color actually looks quiet nice! I dont think i can justify 46$ CAD for an ordinary blush!

    I just find Nars multiples unreasonably pricey. They are sold for equivalent of $50 in the UK.
