NARS Copacabana Multiple Stick used to be one of my favorite go-tos for a taller nose and killer cheekbones until I came across the new NARS Copacabana Illuminator.
Containing light-reflecting liquids that glide on to refresh and enhance the complexion for a shimmering incandescence, the Copacabana Illuminator is a liquid and in my opinion, better version of the original Copacabana Multiple.
Compared to the Multiple, the Illuminator is way more pigmented and all I need is the tiniest drop to really get the glow going. The stick, while more buildable, needs a bit more layering to achieve the same effect. I also noticed that the colors differ slightly. The Multiple gives more of a pearly beige color whereas the Illuminator looks a tinge more pink on my NC30 skin.
One thing the Multiple and Illuminator have in common though, is they both create a gorgeous, dewy highlighting effect that lasts all day, especially when I layer a powder on top.
If you are thinking of picking up the Copabacana Multiple, check out the Illuminator instead!
NARS Copacabana Illuminator is available at narscosmetics.com and Sephora for $29.
