I bought this highlighting multiple in hopes that it would give a dewy, pink hued sheen to my cheek and brow bones. While it does impart some sheen, the color completely disappears into my skin (very fair, cool toned). I think this multiple would be best for someone with a slightly darker skin tone. It barely shows up on me. For now, I'll stick to my Copacabana Multiple.
love this formula for highlighting over powder. great cream to powder stick for a subtle sheen. i'm nc 20 and this suited my skin better than copacabana. sleek packaging.
My favorite highlighter! Get compliments whenever i wear it! If youre new to the nars multiple range, i suggest you get this first since it matches all skin colours because its not very pigmented and adds a shine/glow rather than a colour. Although the colour it does add is a mix of benefits high beam and moon beam.
Living in Australia, this product is quite expensive, lucky I was able to find a discount website so I got it for much cheaper!
The staying power isn't the greatest and is what's stopping me from giving the product a 5 lippie rating.
I was slightly sceptical about this product when it arrived. The delivery guy left the package in the garden in the sun as I was at work, so when I opened it, it looked like it was starting to melt! I did try in on my cheeks straight away and it kinda went on cakey, obviously due to the fact it was very soft from the heat. But I tried it again in the morning and I must say I love it! It's a beautiful colour for fair skin, it has a shimmer of pink and blue tones in it. Even with a tan this looks lovely on the cheek bones. I will purchase again, but I must say the price is slightly high!
I am not sure I'd buy this again. I like it, but I feel like its 1) a little drying even though I have oily skin, and 2) it gave me a big pimple on my cheekbone where I used it. I have nothing else to attribute this pimple to, I'm pretty sure Luxor is responsible.
So on the pros side: its a very flattering, sheen/subtle glow sort of color that I can imagine would look amazing on anyone. That said, I might prefer the GA fluid sheers instead, but they are a pain to apply properly as you have to pat them in and what not. This is also pretty affordable, and a good highlighter. What I dont like about it in addition to the stuff mentioned earlier is that I usually like to just swipe the stick on my skin but I know thats unhygenic, I think the NARS highlighters that come in tubes (liquids) are probably more hygienic. I def do like it better than Benefit moon beam and Stila's highlighter liquid that I had before. Thats all for now folks.
As a makeup artist, I was looking for a illuminator or highlighter that I could use day to day and/or for wedding makeup on clients. I love this product because it does have multiple uses (eyes, lips over lipstick and cheeks), but I really went for this because of the color. It is flattering on a number of skin tones from fair to medium-dark. I use it mostly as a highlighter on myself , applying it under each eye and sweeping it out softly across the tops of my cheekbones. Then blend in, and it is just gorgeous. I did a wedding yesterday and the bride and her maids looked positively radiant.....not glittery or shimmery, just luminous. In Canada, this costs $48.00 but the tube is huge (wide) and a little goes a very long way. Definitely keeping this in my arsenal of must have products. It makes girls feel pretty because it is pretty on any skin!!
the most perfect natural highlight imaginable on my super pale skin. I love that it gives this wonderful understated sheen instead of that disco glitter or oily teasture most highlighters give. I also like wearing this as a wash on my eyelids with just some super black mascara. You can also use it to highlight down the center of the nose and even on oily skin it doesn't budge. Love it.
I've had the orgasm multiple for a while, and loved the cream-to-powder formula, so I decided to try the highlighters in the range. A MUA working at Nars recommended I try Luxor instead of Copacabbana, and I'm so glad I listened! I'm uber-fair, and the pink/lilac tinge works perfectly with my skin tone, not to mention this requires hardly any blending, because it leaves such a natural glow! I just blend the edges, and it looks like my skin is glowing, not like I just swiped a stripe of luxor on my cheekbone. It has fairly good staying power, and the highlight is very natural. When I eventually finish it, I'll buy another!
I was really curious about the NARS Multiples - and I found a gift set on their website. Three minis came in one set (Orgasm, Luxor, and Malibu). They are really mini, but they glide on like silk which I really like. I've tried on each as a blush/highlighter, eye shadow, and lip color. I'd probably use them as lip colors mostly becuase they don't have much staying power on the cheeks as I'd like. Out of the three, I'd probably purchase Orgasm again, and I prefer BeneFit's HighBeam to Luxor any day.
The quality of this product is a five but overall its a four because the amount of product is too much resulting in extremely high price. I doubt I'd finish using this product even using it all the time and because you always have to touch it directly it probably wouldn't be good to keep for more than five years, while the packaging says 2 years. So less product for better price would be more practical for those using it only for themselves (non-makeup artists).
Perfect for everyday wear all over the face. To me it is almost an exact cross between benefit's moonbeam and highbeam. It has the pink/silver frostiness of highbeam and the purple/golden iridescence of moonbeam but more subtle and more natural looking on both accounts. The frostiness isn't glaring and the iridescence isn't too fake looking. For me the benefit highlighters are great for going out but the Nars multiple can be used all the time in more places (including the rest of the body) and its creamy formula is easier to work with and can be 'played' with more. So this is an ideal product to carry with at all times and for travel when you only want to bring a few items. It's great to use for with little makeup or when totally doing it up with a dramatic/strong eye. This highlighter is great in combo with the Nars Sheer Glow, which I may have to purchase as well as check out the other multiples.
