The question is, would I wear the new sheer burgundy cream stick Mutiple in NARS 413 BLKR on my eyes?
Hmm… Probably not, unless I were planning to attend an apocalypse party or wanted to celebrate the mid-season return of The Walking Dead this Sunday night with an undead chic look.
Burgundy eyeshadow plus Karen’s eyelids equals zombie time! But if burgundy’s your jam, you could wear it on your eyes, because NARS designed their (The?) Multiples to work pretty much everywhere — eyes, cheeks, lips, and even your bod, where you could use it to contour.
Dark, imposing and almost Medieval in stick form, 413 BLKR manifests into a much more approachable sheer matte burgundy on cheeks, where it gives a tint like I just spent an hour outside on a sunny hillside, looking up at the clouds and daydreaming…
When I wear it on my cheeks, which is really the only way I wear this shade, it fades evenly over the course of about six hours. To keep the color fresh, I dab the stick once or twice on each cheek every few hours, and blend out the edges with my fingers. I find that it works well on bare skin, BB creams, foundations and even on top of powder!
If you do plan to wear it as a lip color, you might want to keep a lip balm handy, as I find that it isn’t moisturizing enough for my dry winter lips this time of year (at least not without a little extra help).
AVAILABILITY: Available now at the NARS 413 Bleecker Street store in New York and the 8412 Melrose Avenue store in Los Angeles, as well as online at narscosmetics.com
