My Experience with NARS Multiple Maui:
This product comes in a regular sleek black tube with the word NARS embossed on it which is the signature on every Nars product. The tube itself is of that velvety silky material which tends to attract a lot of dirt and fingerprints and cannot be cleaned so easily. Apart from that the twist up mechanism and the cap are very secure and functional. I love the sleekness and sophistication of the Nars products.
Shade and Texture:
The shade “Maui” is described as a dusty rose. It is more cool toned and doesn’t apply as heavily in one swipe. Many swipes and blending is needed to achieve the desired intensity on my NW23 skin tone. This shade looks very good when you are opting for a natural no-makeup look and gives a deep set natural pink flush which looks very natural. It does contain very tiny speck of shimmer if you see the tube closely, but I haven’t noticed them showing up very prominently on my skin. The color looks almost matte when applied but it does give a natural glow.
I have had this for quite some time now and the thing I have noticed is that over time, the product does not apply as creamy and glides as effortlessly as when I first got it. The product tends to dry out with time, hence it does make application difficult, but even then blending of this product into skin is super easy. You can use your fingers or even a small stipple brush and both do the job equally well. Over to the claims of it being a “multiple” product. I definitely do not think that it truly lives up to the claim. When applied on the eye, it tends to crease on me and doesn’t provide a good base for other colors to stick on. On my lips though, the color looks very pretty, it dries out my lips horribly and tends to accentuate lines on my lips. So the only way I do use this product is on cheeks which doesn’t really make me want to pay a high price for a product claiming to be multi-purpose.
It has a very good staying power. It stayed looking fresh for 5-6 hours and then there is some light fading, but by the end of the day, there is still some color on my cheeks. I don’t like the staying power on lips as within an hour of wear my lips feel very dry and look so bad that I take it off and apply something else instead.
It has a very light fresh scent which is not overwhelming nor does it linger long.
Overall, I am not super impressed with this product considering the high price tag it comes with. It does a good job of a very natural looking pink blush but I was disappointed in the aspect of it being of “multiple” use.
Pros of NARS Multiple Maui:
- Very pretty, cool-toned dusty pink color.
- Applies sheer but the intensity can be easily built up with multiple swipes.
- Blending is super easy and can be done easily with both fingers or brush.
- Light fragrance is not bothersome.
Cons of NARS Multiple Maui:
- Packaging attracts a lot of dirt and fingerprints, not easy to clean.
- Creases when used on eye and does not provide a good base for shadows to stick on.
- On lips, makes my lips super dry and I do not prefer using it there.
