We all love NARS’ multi-use The Multiple, a buildable stick eye, face and lip colour that is super versatile and perfect for putting your face on while you’re on the go. Through the years, NARS has released variation of this best-selling icon, including sheers and mattes.

Great for those looking for a healthy rosy flush, the sheer textures go on smoothly for a diffused effect. However, for those (read: ahem, us) who love our high intensity pigments, the Matte Multiples are a dream come true. True to colour and totally blendable, what you see is really what you get when it comes to these bad boys.

A little goes a long way so do apply with a light hand. Plus, since there are no shimmer particles or glitter, the creamy sticks can be used to sculpt, add a veil of colour or even highlight, depending on the shade you choose. Another pro? They layer super well with liquid or powder foundation, which makes them really live up to their name of being multi-use. The cream texture are also considerably long-lasting, even throughout a hot and humid day. For budge-proof wear, it is still recommended to layer on a powder blush over it.
