A Fall Blush Option: @NARSissist Dolce Vita

Fall is upon us. You may be dragging your hoodies (or someone else’s *winks*) from your closets so that means it’s time to transition your makeup to deeper tones. Deeper lippies are a staple, but what about blushes?

Dolce Vita Blush From Nars Cosmetics

Nars Cosmetics Dolce Vita has been in my makeup drawer forever. It’s described as a dusty rose and a great blush for fall. It’s matte so if you’re trying to stay away from sparkly or glitterly blushes then this could be for you. Unfortunately, Nars blushes are not cheap. Prices have slowly crept up on us Narsissists in the last few years, but I still think they’re great. There’s something out there for most skintones so even if Dolce Vita doesn’t tickle your fancy there’s another one out there waiting for you. And if you already have a fave Nars blush let me know in the comments. :-)

Nars Cosmetics Dolce Vita blush($30) is available at narscosmetics.com, Sephora and wherever Nars Cosmetics are sold.     

NARS Cosmetics Laos Matte Multiple Review

Nars Cosmetics Laos Matte Multiple Review

Francois Nars is my patronus. Ok, seriously, Nars Cosmetics is one my holy grail brands. I haven’t tried everything, but what I have tried I love. So after seeing swatches and reviews of their new Matte Multiple I knew I had to have at least one or two. I snagged a couple a day ago, tried them on, and I’m in love.

The Multiple is a multi-purpose cream product that you can put it on your lips or cheeks. There are already 18 Multiples that have a shimmer finish and now 7 Matte Multiples. I chose Siam, a gorgeous poppy red and Laos, an equally gorgeous rose coral. For the purpose of this post though I’m only going to talk about Laos.

The Matte Multiple is easy to use. I used my fingers to apply and it blended easily. I may have blended it out too much at first because what I saw in the mirror wasn’t necessarily transferring to my photos. So keep that in mind. I also used it on my lips. I didn’t have any problems with the product itself but my bottom lip’s natural color is pretty close to the color of Laos so it wasn’t that drastic of a change. I ended up putting lip gloss on top of it and it looked better.

This retails for $39 but I think it’s worth it because a little goes a long way. I think if I hadn’t blended it so much I might have got the look I wanted with a couple of fingertip swipes on the top.

So have you tried the Nars Matte Multiple? What color do you have your eye on?
