Remember I told you about my love for Calvin Klein’s Maven Lip Gloss? I wasn’t joking! I picked up three more of these glosses at Sephora–and of course, I didn’t even use my $15 off coupon. I was too impatient to go home and get it! The colors I bought were Taffy, Knockout, and Radar. I just love the way these glosses feel alone (and I rarely wear glosses alone), so I wanted some great everyday shades. Taffy is a nice, soft pink with gold shimmer in it. Knockout is a cooler, pastel purple-pink that’s less traditionally everyday–it reminded me of Negligee lipglass by MAC. Radar is ridiculously pretty, being almost like a nude lipgloss but with plenty of pink and peach undertones.

NARS Multiple Bronzer ($37.00) is the latest in Multiple technology. The Bronzer Multiples feature three colors: Tuomota (light to medium complexions), Malaysia (medium to dark), and Rapa Nui (dark). If you’re unfamiliar with The Multiple, it is a cream-to-power, multi-purpose makeup stick. You can apply with fingers, brushes, or directly from the stick itself (it’s all up to you and your preferences). The bronzer shades of The Multiples are designed to help naturally bronze or sculpt the face/cheeks.
I tried Malaysia for my skin tone (and it is the shade pictured above). It’s a deep, warm bronzy shade that may actually be a bit too dark for me. I definitely see myself liking this more during the summer, when my complexion has more warmth and is naturally tanner than at the moment–especially since I just dropped another shade lighter! This can be used to contour cheeks, though for me it was a little too warm for a contour.
I loved the texture and feel, though. It’s creamy without being overly so, and the stick itself is stiff enough to not feel like it’s melting all over the place. The $37 price tag is hefty, and I admit it’s a major reason why I’ve been so hesitant to get into NARS’ Multiples. At least you can rest assured that you do get plenty of product for your money. It’s too bad NARS didn’t put out a Multiple Mini Set for the holidays–wouldn’t that have been killer?
