I like the packaging of the NARS Multiples because they are very travel-friendly. You don't need any brush to apply this on your cheeks or lips. Just dab a little product on your face and blend with a clean finger. Voila! Beautiful lit-from-within flush on the cheeks or pigmented, creamy color on your lips.
I've heard a lot of reviews expressing their disappointment over the smaller size of these new NARS Matte Multiples compared to the regular Multiples. As you can see in the comparison photos above, the new Matte Multiples are relatively smaller than their regular Multiple counterparts. However, if you check the swatches above, the Matte Multiples are much more pigmented, so a little goes a long way, versus applying a bit more when it comes to the regular NARS Multiples.
I honestly am also disappointed with the size of the Matte Multiples, I can see them being used for a long while, because you only use a small amount since they are quite pigmented. You can just dab a little bit of the product on your cheeks and blend with a finger.
Laos is my favorite- it's a very wearable pink neutral that gives this lit-from-within glow. Siam is a beautiful poppy color that reminds me of my favorite NARS cream blush in Cactus Flower.
All in all, I am loving the pigmentation and texture of the new NARS Matte Multiples. They are admittedly smaller than the regular NARS Multiples, which is disappointing, but they make up for it by having better pigmentation, hence you need a smaller amount for each application.
