The last six would look amazing on my skintone.

*ok do you ask the sales clerk if you can take pictures of the items or you just take a picture w/ out them looking(I always wanted to do this, but wasn’t sure)?

I have Orgasm and Maui. Barely use them though, even though they are always in my purse as “emergency beauty articles”! In fact, NARS Orgasm the multi was my very first NARS purchase! From your swatch Christine, I’m lovin’ Cap Vert.

I have Orgasm and its gorgeous, so much prettier than the powder blush, but its unfortunate that they are so expensive, since its kind of hard to give almost $40.00 for a blush.

I use Orgasm more than I use the powder blush version because its easier to put on when I don’t have my brushes. I just bought South Beach for the summer and I love it. They are a little dry to use on your lips but what I do if I’m real lazy is use south beach on my lids cheeks and lips and just put a good clear lip balm over the lipstick to keep it on and keep it from feeling chalky. Plus they last forever so for the amount you get the price isn’t tooo bad, its high I’ll admit but I think its worth the splurge. (No I dont work for Nars or any makeup store at all :P)

I have Copocabana, Maui, and Portofino and love, love, love them. Yes, they are pricey… but they last forever and are an easy item to toss in a purse without the need for packing brushes. I’m fairly pale, so I apply mine more sheer and build until I get the depth I want. If the price scares you too much, try to keep them in mine when the annual F&F Sephora 20% off event comes around this fall. That’s when I purchased mine. =)

This was the very first NARS product I ever bought when the line first debuted – early/mid 90’s? I can’t seem to remember but the shade I bought has been since discontinued – it was Cannes and I remember I felt so grown up when I wore it. It took me a while to build my Nars collection because of the hefty price tag but I have been obsessing over the multiple duos.

My friend at Sephora gave me the Orgasm multiple and sadly it doesn’t show up at all on me. I think I need to layer it over the Orgasm blush – which I have a love/hate relationship!

They are pricey, but they last FOREVER! Plus, you can use them as eye color/blush/lip color. Ideal for when you travel. My faves are Maldives and South Beach. I went on a trip to the Amazon and it was the only thing I took with me!

With a cream product, though, “forever” isn’t so enticing. I imagine after 3-4 years (though guidelines would say 1-2 years), it’d be pretty gross πŸ™

I wish there was some way for you to use different skin tones when swatching, because I can never tell what a product will look like on me. I have porcelain skin w/freckles.

Maybe you can get some of your friends with different skin tones (to you), to let you do swatches on them and have pictures of the swatches on you and on your friends next to each other for comparison. Unfortunately, when I look for swatches I don’t go to Temptalia first.

That’s the beauty of the blogosphere – there are many blogs you can visit to see different reviews, skin types, colors, etc. πŸ™‚

My friends all have their own lives to live and can’t be there whenever I do swatches (which is around the clock), unfortunately! Temptalia is a very time-intensive blog, and it’s just not feasible to run while trying to coordinate with everyone else’s equally busy schedules. In a perfect world, it wouldn’t be so – but it’s just impossible to do that at this time. It’s definitely something I would love to be able to do in the future when it is possible.

I’m really sorry that the blog isn’t more to your liking! πŸ™

Maldives is my absolute favorite. I rarely buy the same products over and over again but I have bought multiple Multiples in Maldives. I gently tap it onto my temples/orbital area almost every day and for my skin tone it is the perfect brightener. I adore it. I can say though, it did not work as an eyeshadow for me and it is too dry to use on my lips–so I use these (I also have Orgasm) strictly on the cheeks or as a face highlighter.

I own Nars Orgasm Multiple and just love the color on my eyelids. However, it creases like crazy! Just doesn’t work, not on its own, not over primer -I’ve tried quite a few!-, not setting it with a similar powder eyeshadow. I would love to find a good cream eyeshadow dupe for orgasm multiple. I have rubenesque paint pot, but it’s definitely not a dupe when applied on my eyelids. Any ideas for a great cream eyeshadow to dupe orgasm multiple? Pleaseeee! I’m in love with the color!
