NARS Jo Multiple Tint Review, Photos, Swatches


NARS Jo Multiple Tint ($39.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a light-medium pink-coral with a natural sheen. It had sheer pigmentation, which was buildable to semi-sheer (two to three layers), but it wasn’t a product that could be layered too much or else it started to feel almost tacky and too slick on the skin. It was easiest to use on bare skin, where it had the most noticeable tint to me, but it was blendable over liquid/cream base products. It wasn’t as foolproof to use over powder.

The new, limited edition formula is supposed to be a “sheer, tinted format” with “natural-looking color” for “lips and cheeks.” Worth noting that while the physical size didn’t seem different, the tube contains about half as much as the regular Multiple formula (0.23 oz. compared to 0.50 oz.). I think this would be more suitable for someone with a lighter skin tone, as it got lost on mine as I blended it out. The consistency was smooth, blendable, and had moderate slip, and it did not dry down, so it always looked slightly wet on the skin. This made for a more comfortable lip product, and it looked like a tinted balm on my lips (not too much shine) and was non-drying. It wore well for six hours as a blush and three hours as a lip product.

Compared to the first 2, this one just seems lackluster and lacking color. Although, perhaps it’s because I know that it would disappear on me, LoL!

I’m not really into these cheek/lip duos as I find they’re too creamy for the cheeks and too sheer on the lips (Can’t win haha!) I quite like this colour though – dupeable but it’s the perfect everyday shade!

I’m surprised this product ranked so well. It’s impossibly sheer and it probably takes a lot of product for little color pay off. In the end it almost makes no sense to purchase it – there are better cream blushes and sheer lipsticks/lip tints for half the cost.

It’s supposed to be sheer, so I wouldn’t rate it poorly for being sheer – as described. It didn’t take a lot of product for sheer coverage – just one layer.

6 hours? Seriously it holds that long? I purchased this and I honestly felt so fooled. This “look natural” is just the way how to market badly pigmented product. I’m with Nordic fair skin and greyish blue eyes but this product can be hardly noticed to my skin. In addition to this – half sized product but the same size. I feel I’ve applied thick lip balm on my cheeks. If someone’s mesmerized by the color, I strongly recommend Stila’s convertible in Petunia. The shade seems identical to me and it’s way more pigmented. Yes -also even less product, but also half the price!
Nars and Charlotte Tilbury are my favourite brands, but this line is first “fail” for me…

I hope you were able to return it if you did not like the way it wore/looked!

While sheer products aren’t for everyone, I think as long as the brand is marketing the product as sheer, then there’s nothing wrong with that since there are people who prefer sheer coverage!
