Before getting down to reviewing all my *new* goodies from NY, I though a BFTP (blast From The Past) post might be fun since I haven’t done one in a while.

I am sooo happy that I bought this baby when I did and highly recommend getting it if you still can ( I saw that it’s available via Ebay and other such resellers)!   Some trivia – Cadaques is apparently a town in Spain that Salvador Dali often visited!!( actually that is spelt Cadaqués , but I’m guessing that’s what NARS meant as well!)

Price

The (NARS) Multiples sell for 39$ USD currently for 15g of products but you can get this off Ebay for around 30$ and change

Packaging

This used to be novelty packaging at the time but now everyone recognizes it as the “NAR Multiple packaging – tried and true – copied by so many other brands!

So convenient for twist and go type applications!

Pigmentation

It’s perfect for the flushed, “I didn’t do much but I’m glowing” look! It looks a scary bright pink in the tube but it’s such a lovely colour once on.

This is when it was applied SUPER light:Nars_1

 

Built up a bit:

Even though it looks to be a very cool pink in the tube, it’s not as cool once applied, and  I think any skin tone can pull it off:

Texture

It’s a super light cream, that feels like a cool gel going on, which then dries to  a stain. It might seem like a much lighter version of Too Faced’s cream blush in Tea Rose if you’ve ever used that.While I find the Too Faced one a bit drying on my  lips this actually feels really nice on. I wore this on my lips with a light gloss over it for the pictures here.

Staying Power

All day and then some :) Absolutely great for those hot humid days !

Verdict

One of my staples. Boggles the mind as to why they wouldn’t keep it around in their permanent line!! It is so worth any price that you can get it at, especially considering you get so much product and need just the tiniest amount!!

I haven’t really bought any of the other multiples simply because I have so many other blushes that I own, but if you have any recommendations for ones that you love, do let me know! Love hearing from you :)
