I bought this based on the rave reviews here & it truly is a great product. I have been using this none stop to enhance my tan. I apply it on my cheeks, under my eyes & around them. Gives me a nice glow without looking greasy. I have oily combo skin and MMM skintone.

Well so far, this seems to be the only bronzer that's worked for me. At first I thought it would be too light on my NC30-35/BE Light complexion, but this makes me look sooo healthy and radiant, as if I'm glowing from within. . Loves it! ;)

I'm NC35 and used this as a blush applied with my fingers. It has the perfect texture, shimmer (not glitter), and beautiful color! It is a bronzey peach that provides just the right amount of glow - a summer must have! Only reason I gave it a 4 is because of the price - $36.50 is a bit high but I'm hopeful this will last a long time without expiring.

South Beach is my first Multiple and NARS product but will certainly not be my last! It comes in the huge stick that will last forever. You only need a small amount of this product. I rub it on my fingers then tab it onto my cheeks, a little on my forehead and all the way down my nose, and also around my eyes. It gives you a great tan glow! It has a slight amount of shimmer, but not glitter - it's definitely great for work or going out. This is going to be awesome for summer. I really enjoy using this product. It's very easy to put on and looks great!

For me, this is a blush. I'm medium, olive-toned, brown hair, and it's peachy maybe with a little bronze,and lovely shimmer. There's a ton of product in a multiple, and I warm it up on my hand first and it glides on well, just use my fingers to blend it in better and everything looks nice and glowy. I've tried it on lips and it looks good layered with some gloss. I think it could be good on eyes, making it a somewhat true multiple.

Please excuse my language but this is FREAKING GORGEOUS! South Beach is a shimmery bronze-peach that brightens up your skin (mine: C3/C30, LM Sunny Beige) without looking dirty or muddy. This and Portofino are my favorite Multiples and I am now a diehard cream blush convert. Thank you NARS!

This fat stick is absolutely brilliant. I was skeptical because I'm not usually a NARS fan, but I do love South Beach. I am warm-neutral PPP and wear this on the apples of my cheeks with Smashbox French Kiss blush/highlighter on the cheekbones - the combo is really fantastic. In fact, it's all I've been wearing for the past week. Can't get enough of it. I was worried that the shimmer in South Beach would highlight my large pores, but it really doesn't. It's just a beautiful warm flush. I can't wear it on my eyes without an e/s base and it's a little too bronzey for my lips, but in a pinch I would use it on eyes and lips as well for an easy monochrome look. This stuff is expensive, but the tube is huge, and you could always slice the bullet in half to split with a friend.

This is such a great colour!! I have only just gotten into multiples and i dont know why i waited.
As other gals have said, this is a shimmery (i love shimmer) peachy bronze. I have it on today with mac melon pigment on my eyes, lots of mascara and stila fruit punch lipglaze ... its a great natural dewy/bronzy look!
It compliments my tanned NC30 skin perfectly ... i also have palm beach which is a lot darker and much more like a bronzer.

South Beach is a great golden bronzey peachy flush color. I have nc30 light olive skin and this is perfect for me. Retails for $36.50 and comes in a large round stick. Doesnt cause breakouts and lasts all day. Great shade.

I just got this today and I looove it! I'm a FFF and this makes my skin glowy and peachy. I only paid 29 bucks on ebay and I'm glad that I didn't have to pay the original price ($36).. I doubt I'll use this all up becaue there is a lot of product in this tube. Overall, I'm veryyy happy that I finally bought this :)

Nars South Beach is the most beautiful blush on the planet. It is just *so* gorgeous! It's the perfect cross between a blush and a bronzer, and it's a peachy-apricot-rose-bronze color. This works best on warm toned skin, and it looks great on my light olive skin. I do have a habit of applying too much, so I have to be careful, because it is quite shimmery. It's also not good to use if you have blemishes on your cheeks because it tends to highlight them. Otherwise though, I think it's the best shade of blush I've ever come across. You have to try this if you are warm toned. The Nars Multiples are also the only cream blushes that I use because they are so easy to apply. You just dab on and go!

I love this blush stick especially in the summer months. I even use it on my eye lids. It is a gorgeous bronzed color. I have a fair complexion and it looks great, I think it would work for all skin tones. It is expensive but it's worth it!

I will admit to ignoring multiples for quite some time because they just didn't seem worth it. While browsing Sephora one day, I picked up South Beach and put it on the back of my hand--Wow!! This is a bronze cast with peach. After this, I went to Neiman Marcus and had a Nars SA apply it. She applied it to the very tops of my cheekbones and to my browbone. I couldn't believe how just that little bit added so much more depth to my face, but it did! I now use South Beach on a daily basis. I use it mainly on my cheeks, but it also looks quite lovely if you apply it to your collarbone. If you hunch forward so your collarbone sticks out and apply to the places where it sticks out, it looks amazing. I know that sounds like a silly way to apply, but it really adds something to an evening look.

I don't know what I would do without my Nars Multiples. They are the best, and South Beach is no exception. This is probably the one that I use the most. South Beach is a lovely, warm shimmery bronze with a little hint of peach. I'm a MMM with olive undertones so this doesn't offer a lot of color but instead leaves a beautiful peachy glow. It's one of those products that gives you a certain je ne sais quoi. Sometimes I use it alone if I'm feeling a bare-faced, natural kind of look, or sometimes I use it as a highlighter with my makeup. This is incredibly versatile, and I use it on my cheeks, browbones, forehead, chin, bridge of my nose, sometimes decolletage (not all at once of course). I never use the multiples on my lips because I think they may be too drying on my already dry lips, but it would probably look lovely if you mixed it in with some lipgloss. South Beach also looks fabulous paired with Orgasm blush (as someone else pointed out). This is definitely one of the creamier, softer multiples which makes it a lot of fun to apply and blend. A lot of people have mentioned that this may be too shimmery, but while it's definitely shimmery, I think it blends well and doesn't in any way give you that sparkly, I'm the stand-in for a disco ball kind of look. While a little pricey, there's a TON of product, which makes it far worth the money.

Once again, NARS has succeeded in the realm of face color products. Being a huge fan of the powder blushes, I decided to try the South Beach multiple. I was a bit hesitant because it looked so bronzey-brown in the container, and not like a color that would look good one me, but since Sephora had only one more in stock, I decided to grab it. I don't regret it at all! For reference, I am a MAC NC25/Stila 30 Watts or Level C/LM Nude with dark hair and eyes. On me, it shows up as a peachy-pink with just a hint of golden bronze, and gives my complexion an instant pick-me-up by giving it a glowy effect. Unlike Portofino (which I also have), South Beach is creamy and long-lasting. For a bit more pink, I like to dust a bit of Orgasm blush on top. A definite must-have in my makeup bag, and I would buy again if I ran out or lost it.

South Beach is a shimmery bronze with maybe a hint of peach on my light, yellow-toned skin (MAC C2). I always apply with a very light hand because I don't like a lot of color on my cheeks and this product gives me a very healthy glow. I haven't noticed the glitter chunks that some people mentioned but that could be because I only use a small amount at a time. The reason I couldn't give it five lippies is the outrageous price tag. You do get a fair amount of product, but not enough to justify spending $36. I do, however, really want to try Mustique so I may buy it as a splurge in the future.

This multiple is a suntanned peach-bronze, and it looks pretty on darker skin as a hilighter or on NC20 NW 20 ish skin as a little bit of color, I think it looks a bit orange on PPPs

i use this mostly as a blush, but sometimes also on my lids and lips. very versatile product. not overly shimmery. gives my cheeks a peachy glow with a hint of pink. very pretty color. MA suggested me to pair it with the orgasm blush and they really work very well together.

Okay, I finally get what all the hype is about South Beach. I've had Malibu for years now and was never impressed by it. Loved the texture and consistency, but the color was all wrong. I swapped it away and bought South Beach - WOW! Now I see how people get hooked. It is so flattering on my light olive, cool toned, C3 skin! Adds the perfect amount of natural looking bronze/beige color with a glowing sheen to it. I use it on cheeks and as a highlighter and it really warms up my dull looking winter complextion. I cannot wait to use it this summer, when I start self-tanning my face. I bet it will look fabulous!

I really like this Multiple, but I've only used it as a blush. It's weird on my eyes or lips and I don't use bronzers. I only gave it a four, because it's not the most versatile product for me. I would repurchase it though, because I love it as a blush and you get SO much of it. I'd love it if NARS came out with a set of mini-Mulitples like Tarte does with their cheekstains every year. One thing that surprises me is all the people who don't like the shimmer in this. I'm not a big fan of shimmer at all, and I don't think this is very shimmery on me. It just gives a nice glowy look and if I put powder over it I really don't see the shimmer at all.
