No Time for Makeup?

Then The Multiple by NARS is for you!!!  It's PERFECT for those days when you don't have time to really sit and do your makeup.  The Multiple is a multi-purpose stick that goes on your eyes, cheeks, and lips (although it's a bit drying for the lips so I use whatever gloss I'm feelin' instead).  

The Picture That Inspired
The Multiple!
The story behind The Multiple is SO cool.  Years ago, there was a Harper's Bazaar spread where six makeup artists showcased a look, and the products they used were written at the bottom of the page.  On Francois Nars's page (seen at the left), only one product was written: Tangier Lipstick.  He'd used ONLY that lipstick on the model's eyes, cheeks, and lips.  It was a hit and people began trying to copy the look, but since lipstick is only meant for the lips, a new formula had to be created.  And so, The Multiple was born!

The Multiple looks great alone, or worn over whatever kind of makeup you use as a base.  Sometimes, I wear it over Bobbi Brown's SPF 25 Tinted Moisturizing Balm, which I posted about here, and then I apply a little mascara, a little gloss - and PRESTO!  It comes in lots of colors, but I like the bronze-type shades because they really give your skin a sun-kissed glow.  (The color in my makeup drawer these days is South Beach.)  It takes a minute to apply, and then you can drop it in your purse and hit the road...such a relief to carry only ONE product around!  

Most importantly, The Multiple gives you the freedom to hit the snooze button a few more times and get that LITTLE BIT of extra beauty sleep.  ;)

The Multiple by NARS gets a rating of 4 out of 5 lipsticks:
