With all the smokey purples and shimmery platinums blazing on eyes over at NARS fall 2012, I can see why FranÃ§ois Nars (can I call you FranÃ§ois, Monsieur Nars?) decided to go the sheer pink route with the new Multiple in Undress Me ($39). Smokey eyes and chill cheeks? — a classic pairing, like a more beautiful version of peanut butter and jelly (incidentally, my dinner tonight, because I was too lazy to cook).
But because it’s from NARS, this creamy, multitasking stick, which is designed to lavish both lips and eyes, comes with a twist. Yes, it’s jam packed with oodles of silver glitter. More like buckets, really. I’m talkin’ so much glitter that my shimmer-loving, sequined-covered, feathered-headdress-wearing inner drag queen snaps in full approval.
After I swipe a single layer of Undress Me on my skin and buff it down with my fingers, the glitter reveals itself like a phoenix rising!

Many glittery products give up the glittery ghost about halfway through the day, but oh, not this one. No, this here glitter sticks it out for 6-8 hours on my skin, even if/when I rub at my cheeks (which I did vigorously to see what would happen, and it didn’t budge!).
Of course, all that glitter could be a problem for some, and I wouldn’t recommend it if you’re very concerned about the size of your pores. I feel like Undress Me really magnifies mine, eek! But if that’s not a problem, and you’re looking for a fun way to inject more sparkle into your life and look, Undress Me should do the trick.
