NARS Matte Multiples - Photos, Swatches

NARS brings vibrant pops of color and sensual sun-kissed hues to lips and cheeks with the new Matte Multiple.  Founder and Creative Director Fran├žois Nars takes one of the brand’s most innovative and iconic products and adds a modern twist on the cult classic.  Available in seven shades from ginger pink to golden bronze, the Matte Multiple features a creamy, lightweight formula that delivers buildable, long-lasting, hydrating color for lips and cheeks.  This innovative formula can be applied dry for a soft yet vibrant matte effect or wet for a rich and vivid finish that melts into skin.

There are quite a few multi-use lip/cheek combination products in the market, and NARS Multiples are definitely some of the best.  NARS Matte Multiples are the newest additions - same concept as the original Multiples but with a creamy matte finish.  Here's a look at the swatches on my darker Indian skin tone.

I didn't pick up any of these - the NARS Matte Multiples are a permanent addition to the NARS makeup range, so I can wait - but the ones on my wishlist are Laos and Siam.  Altai seems to be a better match to my skin tone than most foundations I have tried :D
