Makeup and Beauty Product Reviews and Swatches

The Multiple has always been one of the cult products in the beauty industry and now NARS has combined two Multiples in a compact to give you the Multiple Duo ($45) that is available only for a limited period of time.

Encased in the NARS signature black, mirrored compact about the size of the Holiday eyeshadow palette (which I <3 btw), the Multiple Duo can be used on the eyes, lips and cheeks. All colors are super lightweight, great to blend and create such a nice, subtle glow to the face.

I have Orgasm/South Beach, which consists of a shimmery peachy pink paired with a shimmery apricot. While Orgasm looks great as a blush on my NC30 skin, I find South Beach to be the winner in this pair. It looks great as a wash on the eyelids, on the hollows of the cheeks for just the right amount of contouring and along the bridge of the nose as a highlighter.

If you don’t want to fork out $51 for Guerlain’s Meteorites Powder, check out Presciptives’ Winter Reflections All-Over Highlighter ($35) from its Aglow Holiday 2008 collection.

The All-Over Highlighter comes in a container about the size of my palm and contains different-sized powder pearls in medium pink, golden peach and white. Not only are the little balls pretty to look at but they contain uber fine shimmer to create an all-over glow that is so pretty without looking over the top.

I love using the pink ones on the cheeks as a blush and the white and golden peach ones down my nose as a highlighter. Alternatively, I swirl my brush over all of them and apply all over for a subtle, glowy look.

Unlike the Meteorites, these powder pearls are highly pigmented so remember to tap off excess and apply sparingly.
