I am a nars multiple lover and this is no exception. The color is a tad metallic-y plummy rose with a hint of brown. I absolutely love this ob my lips as it gives a nice rosy lip look. This is a bit on the dry side compared to other multiples..and it goes on a little streaky/requires some blending hence the one lippie off. But after some work it gives a gorgeous natural dewey glow but not metallic-y or disco ball either. Overall fanatic product. Great multi-tasker! It's alright for eyes/monochromatic look, but I adore it on lips and cheek

I've had this for awhile now but I've just now realized how awesome this particular Multiple is. (I had Mustique first but didn't like it too much) It's a great bronzey berry color that I like to dot and blend near the apples of my cheeks (I find that it blends best over a primer/foundation otherwise the color gets blotchy and streaky). It looks really natural albeit sparkly but gives me a nice summery glow. It's a bit pricey but I can tell that this will last for quite awhile. I've also discovered that this doesn't look too bad on my lips either. I just have to dab a bit of gloss or vaseline to get rid of that powdery feeling on my lips. The color doesn't look that great on my eyes but it makes a great base for eyeshadows!
I'm definitely keeping this baby in my purse for touch ups. Normally, I only carry lippies around because I'm afraid my powder products will break or crumble, but I don't have to worry about this. I was about to write off Nars Multiples completely but after getting this one to work marvelously I'm tempted to try more.

I love the color of Cannes, and I wore this stuff stubbornly for an entire winter, unwilling to admit that, despite the nice color, it goes on TERRIBLY! Very smudgy and streaky. This, my friends, is why POWDER blushes were invented!

OK, Iíll admit that CANNES doesnít look exciting next to all the other colours, but give it a chance. It must be one of the most wearable shades.
I picked CANNES because it is a good all rounder. The colour is a copper with a dash of shimmery pink. It blends beautifully with my dry NC15 skin, with I doubted at first.
On cheeks it is more of a light bronzing colour, rather then a blush. The slight pink twinge gives skin a healthy glow. It does lose a lipstick for going on very lightly. Doesnít sound like a bad thing, but it takes a few times to get the colour right, which is awkward when youíre in a rush.
CANNES is a molten bronze shade on my lids. I just love it. Itís a copper on my lips, with a faint pink tinge.
All in all, Iím impressed by both the colour and the quality. Iíll have to start collecting the other shades!!

I love this color! But the texture isn't the best. It requires some work to make it look natural. It is worth the effort because the color is so pretty. I prefer the texture of Fresh cheek creams much better-they just have such a limited color line.

I really tried to like it because I was looking for a fall reddish blush to work with the jewel burgundies, purples in my fall wardrobe. Alas, by stippling it on my cheeks, I would try to blend to smooth out the color, and soon, the color would disappear. I would put more on my cheeks, and blend again...and the color would be all over my fingers but not on my face.
I like the Copacabana highlighter much better, I think it blends better or deposits pigment better than Cannes.
Oh, and this color looks beautiful on the lips. Too bad it didn't perform as better as a blush.

Used for: approximately two months. Reference: C2/NC15 in MAC, blue eyes, bn. hair, normal to dry skin. I purchased Cannes when the weather got more warm and humid here. In testing this at Sephora, I thought it might also be a useful alternative to bronzer for me (imo, bronzer makes my fair skin look dirty).
This is excellent on the cheeks, coming off on me as a rose/plum bronze with a hint of warm shimmer (just a hint, though, particularly by NARS standards). I rub the top two fingers and tap/blend into my cheeks to apply. Cannes also looks terrific under NARS Sin, my HG blush. They seem to compliment each other- Cannes enhances the bronze undertones in Sin and Sin enhances the plum/rose tone in Cannes.
Cannes is also attractive applied on the lips, but over a light application of lip balm. As other reviewers have remarked, it can feel/look drying on the lips, similar to some of MAC's more opaque lipstick formulas.
I have used this successfully as a crease shade, but applied lightly and blended a lot (leaving a bronze sheen). I don't normally wear a lot of eye shadow, so it is a look that seems familiar and appears appropriate to my eye.
Potential drawbacks of Cannes:
Packaging. Some people don't like the minimalist quality. I am not of this mindset, appreciating the sleek design. I would like the multiples overall a little bit better (and I like them very much) if the packaging closed with a stronger "click". It is possible to put this product away without having the top completely closed.
Multi use products can also tend to not be multi use, imo. Cannes works for me because it enhances my pale olive skin tone. I have read many other reviews commenting that they use the multiples as blush only.
Price. Multiples are very expensive, but the package is substantial. I am trying to use MUA to buy in quality, rather than quantity, so this is not a personal issue for me. I can't imagine needing to buy this again any time soon, but if I were to lose it/break it/melt it in the car, I would purchase this shade again.

First of all, I have to say the color is gorgeous, but I found the formula to be a bit dry and difficult to blend. Not impossible, just difficult. This was not very flattering on my eyes or lips either, so that made the $37.00 price tag a bit steep. I prefer Bobbi Brown's Pot Rouge in Blushed Rose over this.

Cannes is a pinky-coppery-rose. Looks neutral and absolutely gorgeous! Shimmery golden too.

When I saw this on the Sephora web site, I didn't even give it a second glance, because it looked far too dark for my medium-fair skin tone. While shopping in the Sephora store this week, I absentmindedly swiped it on the back of my hand, just to see what it would look like...and I was amazed. It wasn't dark at all out of the tube, and when I dabbed some on my cheeks, it gave me the most amazing, natural glow. Not a fakey bronzer, but a warm, just-stepped-away-from-the-campfire glow. I bought the tube, and have worn it all week to work, on my eyes and cheeks. It has a VERY subtle sparkle to it - not as sparkly as Orgasm and some of the other NARS powder blushes - and I two friends ask me what I was doing differently lately to my skin. It lasted through most of the workday, though I'd probably reapply on nights that I go out after work. Yes, $36 seems a bit high at first for this product, but the tube is HUGE and is going to last me for years, even if I do use it for eyes and face, so it will be quite the bargain in the long run. I just hope that when I get to the end of the tube many years from now, NARS is still making this product.

To me, Cannes is the cream version of Lovejoy blush, and considering that I LOVE Lovejoy, this is pretty much perfect. Radiant rosy bronze. I just rub my finger on the top of the stick and then rub into my cheeks and I look naturally flushed, rosy, and sunkissed. I mainly use this for blush, although sometimes I rub it on lips too and top with a gloss--it works well that way also. I've never tried it for eyes. I have no issue with the price tag on this considering it is so incredibly huge, I will probably die before I have a chance to use the whole thing up.

Cannes was my first Nultiple...and the very reason why I'm addicted to multiples at present!
I love the copper-y rose color. It may look scary on the stick, but once applied, it gives my otherwise sallow fair skin just the right color to make me look awake.
I tried it n my friend who has olive-toned skin, it worked pretty well for her too. but I think this particualr multiple is better for fair skin

i would never have chosen this colour if it wasnt for the SA. and i really love it. the colour is so unique and certainly makes a change from the usual pink or brown blushes its expensive but i dont use it every day, more for special occasions so i can see this lasting a long time.

In the tube, Cannes looks very dark, metallic and a little muddy, but on the skin it is just gorgeous! Sheer bronzey rose with just the right amount of shimmer. If you like NARS Lovejoy powder blush, you definitely should try this Multiple. For me the texture is a little too dry to use on lips without lipgloss/lipbalm, but it is the perfect texture for blending directly on bare cheeks and lasts all day on my combo/oily skin, yet doesn't cause breakouts. The only cream formula blush that works for me. HG!

My fifth multiple! Okay, so I have Malibu, Portofino, South Beach, and Maui (which I swapped away since it seemed less creamier than my other Multiples), but Cannes is such a unique and usable color that I just had to have it! It is described as a coppery plum rose that looks a wee bit like Malibu - only a little more copper-y and shimmery. However, it's just as gorgeous on its own! Looks a lot like NARS Sin (which I love!) in a cream blush form. NARS never fails to impress! I will keep on collecting these Multiples for as long as I live! :-)

I picked this up at C.O. Bigelow since I've always wanted to try a multiple. It's very difficult to see the shade on the website, but Cannes really impressed me in person because it's a coppery rose that gives the cheeks a truly NATURAL flushed glow. I decided to go with this one for that reason. This product changed my mind about blushes COMPLETELY! I don't care if I ever use another blush again in life! The packaging is awesome in terms of portability. You get a generous amount of product, which you should for $36 USD and it is WORTH IT! It leaves a soft glow that doesn't scream "GLITTER" or "SPARKLE" (unlike my experience with Orgasm blush). Ultimately, a wonderful color. Will repurchase if I ever run out and will try other colors as well.

I find this multiple's shade to be quite similar to NARS Sin blush (which is probably my favorite) so I love to carry this around in my purse for touch ups, since it's very easy to apply. If I ever run out of this one, I'll probably repurchase!

I bought this multiple about 2 weeks ago, and I fell in love with the look. I'll be having the 14th anniversary of my 29th birthday in a few months(gasp...say it aint so), and I tend to stay away from Britany Spears-esque shimmery glittery look.(I felt Nars orgasm powder blush was a bit teeny boppery for me..way too much sparkle) This particular product doesnt "shimmer" or "glimmer" on me, but it does give me a dewey look. Its great for a casual look, used as blush & lip color. BUT...The packaging blows.Ive only had it 2 weeks, and Ive nicked the sides of the product with the cap. I wont apply it to my lips like a lipstick, then use it on my face,(skeeves me out) so I use a lip brush. Unfortunately, using a lip brush puts more nicks in the product, so when you rub it onto your cheeks, its uneven.Maybe I need to learn a new trick for applying it? I would prefer this in a compact.And there is sooo little product. I would buy it if it were in a different package. Maybe there is? Im new to Nars.

this is a beautiful pinky-bronze color with minimal shimmer. too bad it makes me look sunburnt and fades after a few hours. other multiples don't do this on me, and i have a friend who loves cannes, so i think it's just my skintone. too bad. to the swapist it goes.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
For the price of this blush, I'd say the quality and color is worth it -- but only if you want to treat yourself or feel like splurging. Otherwise, there are cheaper and almost-the-same blushsticks to be found in MAC.
The NARS Multiple really lives up to its name: for the cheeks on both tan skin (me) and light skin (my friend who has pale skinwith yellow undertones); it goes on sheer and lovely on the lips with a shimmery effect; and it's a great base color for the eyes. The best part is the color is blendable and buildable. It can go on light and natural or deeper for nights-out. Not to mention it's a great color.
