The Multiple - South Beach

When I first came accross Nars The Multiple - South Beach I glanced over it as though it was another bronze looking product that would look atrocious on my light skin. And then these mini Multiple sticks came into my possession and I couldn't help but try it.

The shade is (accurately) described as shimmering apricot. I still hold that it has a bronze look to it, but in a good way. It's a warm, hearty apricot. And one that suits a variety of skintones!

It's a creamy formula that seems to just melt into the skin, blending without hesitation at the tips of your fingers. Unlike a cream though, the multiple stick dries to a weightless finish like a powder. There is no sticky, gunky feeling on the skin. Perfect for lips and cheeks (I prefer cheeks) it adds just a hint of colour and glow that I so desperately need in winter.

Now this is right up there with my other favourite Multiple stick - Copacabana (for entirely different reasons). I'll be going back for more once my mini stick runs out.

What are your favourite Multiples?

A little Drama

Back to i.d Bare Minerals today with an eyecolour I find highly addictive - Drama. A very popular shade it is described as a deep bronzed pewter. It's a Glimmer which means it has a lot of shimmer. But, it's a good kind of shimmer...

Despite how it may appear Drama is wearable both day and night.

Sweep Drama over the crease for an instant smokey eye. It can be lightly applied for a subtle shimmer or paired with a brown eyeliner such as Coffee Bean or Nurture.

With so many Bare Minerals Glimmers to choose from it's hard to narrow it down, but Drama certainly makes my list.

Curious about other Glimmers? Let me know!
