A Friday Face of the Day With the New NARS Matte Multiples

Wearing the new NARS Laos and Cappadoce Matte Multiples on my cheeks

Those are the new NARS Laos and Cappadoce Matte Multiples on my cheeks.

I took a couple of the new NARS Matte Multiples out for a spin today. 🙂

I wanted to see if they’d work on top of NARS Radiant Cream Compact Foundation, and they did! They buffed and blended easily, and now it’s just a question of seeing how well they wear over the next few hours…


Cappadoce, the golden bronze, I’m wearing as a bronzer, and I’m wearing Laos, the rosy coral, as a blush.

Um…yes, I am wearing warm coppery bronze colors on my eyes, again, this time via Tom Ford’s eye quad in Cognac Sable. Apparently, I’m going through a phase, LOL!

I have to say that although the eye colors I used in this look are similar to the colors I used in my FOTD earlier this week, there’s a difference — the addition of the shimmery warm brown liquid liner on my upper lash line and the purplish bronze shadow on the lower.

And then there’s the lashes. This time I went with Katy Perry’s Lovely Lolita.

As for my lips, I guess I could’ve worn NARS Laos there as well (it is a Multiple after all), but I was craving something springier and coral, and shiny, so I opted for Tom Ford’s new Lip Color Sheer in Paradisco instead and topped it with the always reliable Hourglass Extreme Sheen Gloss in Nectar.

I like how it turned out. Now I just have to think of someplace (ideally fun) to wear it tonight.


Hmm… It’s a tossup between Pier 1 and Trader Joe’s. Or maybe See’s.

LOL! Look out, Novato! It’s gonna be one of those nights! 🙂

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,


P.S. What did you do for your makeup today, and do you have any fun plans for this weekend?

    Hi Karen,

    Love the look! I was looking for an eye makeup look that could go with a brighter natural lip and cheek but is not as boring using all matte nudes. Could you suggest another brand with similar shadows as your TF palette? Give Tabs a nice rub for us all your followers! Thank you!

  2. Beautiful!

    I’m in love with this sensual neutrals/omg–look-at-Karen’s-shiny-long-dark-hair phase. It’s, like, beauty blogger catnip.

  5. Natalie says:

    Gorgeous! Those multiples and the Tom Ford shadows and lipstick look amazing on you!

    I vote for Trader Joes, that place is great. I wore NARS New Attitude blush today (I’m in love at the moment) and Urban Decay Shadows.

    Gorgeous! What mascara are you wearing?

  8. Steph says:

    You look stunning. I may have to add a matte multiple to my shopping list. I also literally just purchased defiantly feline at Mac last weekend after going on the hunt for a liquid or cream liner in a bronze-y brown (cause pencil liners evaporate into the land of the unknown on this chick, even with primer and a layer of shadow on top). I love the super slick. The formula and applicator are alone like my beloved MUFE liquid aqua liners.

    I’m almost sure Cognac Sable would be “too warm” on me (I can’t be the only warm-toned girl who has this problem? Haha), but DANG it looks so fantastic on you! Actually EVERYTHING here does, and I have to look into these new multiples.

    Oh, a military ball… STILL deciding on makeup.

  16. Bella says:

    You make Cognac Sable look like a palette I should be using, and that shouldn’t be languishing at the bottom of my “shamefully expensive mistakes” pile. You also make Laos look like a colour I need in my life.

    I love the lip color.

    Wow, now I’m seriously considering Cappadoce as a contour color. Do you think it will be fine? I am NC-42 as well.

    I saw the new NARS Multiples in store the other day. Laos was lovely!!! I ended up buying Hourglass blush due to beauty budget, but the Multiple was awesome!!!

  27. Chelsea says:

    I don’t know how I missed this post! Gorgeous, glowing look that’s making me wish for not-crappy weather!

  28. Amber says:

    The TF Sable palette has been on my wish list for ages, but it’s a bit too costly for me to bite the bullet. But…but…I need more shimmery browns right? Always! The new NARS multiples look great on you. How was the wear time? Love Parasidco on you. Gorgeous color! Have a great weekend. 🙂
