I got a mini size of this multiple and I've just started using it now that spring is around the corner.
It does give me a nice, healthy glow although I need to use it sparingly because I can see it looking orange on my skin tone. (Asian, NC30/C3)
I can see myself using this instead of blush for those minimal makeup days.
I wouldn't spend the money on a full size as I think there are other highlighters that are just as good for less money.

I love love LOVE this multiple. I was intimidated by bronzers and this one is definitely easy to use and does not overdo the brown. As always, NARS packaging is the best and their pigmentation is on point. It blends in beautifully with the rest of your makeup. Definite makeup staple!

This has become my go to product on the weekends. I stripe some on my cheeks and use a brush to blend. Then I load a little on the brush directly and blend on my forehead, nose, chin and neck. I also swipe some from my finger on my eyelids and then finish with a swipe of mascara, mineral veil and lip gloss. The perfect natural, finished look that glows in 2 minutes.
For my work day make up I use this too, but will layer it on top of my BB cream and add a pop of Nars Orgasm blush on my cheeks.
Excited to try more colors in the multiples.

Im AA so i use this for the perfect golden glow and i love it. Its easy to apply and is not a glitter bomb. I rub the top with blush brush and and apply on cheekbones, chin, and brows. It looks nice and doesn't mess up my foundation or blush. I have this in a few colors.

I just bought this and after I first applied it I was not happy. It looked spotty and muddy. I left it on and piddled around the house, about fifteen minutes later I looked in the mirror and loved the color. I think if you apply this over foundation or tinted moisturizer(I use TM) it may need time to settle. I am in love with this color, like everyone has said if gives such a natural warm glow.

This is one of my "must-have" beauty products. I have been using this for years and truly love it. Recently I have been layering this with NARS blush in Orgasm on top and love the way it makes my face glow. It gives me a nice healthy dose of color. On rushed mornings sometimes this (and mascara) are the only things I have time to put on and it truly brings my face to life. LOVE.

I have mixed feeling about this... When I first got it, I hated it. I tried putting it on my skin with my finger tips, a brush, a foundation brush, you name it, and I saw no difference. After coming home late the other night, and waking up early and feeling like death, I decided to give this another whirl, I figured maybe just maybe, eventually this be as good as everyone claims it would be. Well I was right, it gave me a nice glow, so that I appeared awake and refreshed. I don't know why it worked better today than other days, but hey I'll take it. Now, here's the con... It is quite pricey. And after reading some things online, I ordered a wet n' wild blush stick I believe in bronze, and it is the SAME color and lasts the same amount of time, and is $30 cheaper :/

I adore this multiple! I used to think multiples were only good for highlighting, but South Beach totally changed my mind. I saw on a blog where she used this on eyes, lips, and cheeks at the same time, and got this awesome monochrome bronzey glowy look. I did that, and it looked amazing! South Beach has an apricot undertone, which makes it perfect for us pale girls (I'm NC15/20). It is shimmery, but when you blend it out it looks glowy, not disco ball-y. It definitely has a warm tone, so cool ladies might want to think twice. It wears well on me too, but I'm not oily and I set my makeup with UD All Nighter spray. When I use it on my eyes, I put it over primer and it takes a while for it to crease, but when it does just a swipe with a finger will fix it. When it's on the lips, the apricot undertone keeps it from looking too brown, so it doesn't look weird on pale girls. Just make sure to put some balm underneath. This is a great way to get a summery bronze look when you are crunched for time. I will definitely be buying this multiple again!

I found this was too reddish on me. I wanted to use it as a contour but it just didnt look right. I also found that you had to use a brush to get smooth application but it took some of my foundation off from underneath it. I just found it required more effort to make it work than I wanted.

Got this in a mini holiday set. I had no idea this coppery bronze would work so well on my pale skin. Gives the most dewey glow ever and makes you look flawless in pictures. I wish the full size wasn't so expensive and they would make more mini sets!

My favorite multiple so far. Just beautiful on my skin tone (NC42). Just gives me such a glow- even better than Orgasm and Copacabana. One of my favorites!

My wonderful makeup artist at Sephora tried really hard to give me a makeover with all Nars products (love her!) but tbh, this product is not for sensitive skin. In form of cream to powder, it still caused some cystic acne on top of my cheekbones. It does look wonderfully in some certain light but you need a brush to pile it on, which in turn eliminates the portable characteristic of it. On a sunny day or in yellow light at home or in clubs, don't expect to see it show up on your face. My skin is NC30. Personally I think it can't be used to contour your face since it is not dark enough (more peachy) and very shimmery.
Just added ingredient list:
Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Capric/Caprylic Stearic Triglyceride, Cetyl Dimethicone, Diisospropyl Dimer Dilinoleate, Propylene Glycol Laurate, Silica, Cera Alba (Beeswax) (Beeswax), Candelilla Cera (Euphorbia Cerifolia Wax) (Euphorbia Cerifera), Ozokerite, Nylon 66, Octyldodecanol, Cetyl Palmitate, Tocopherol (Natural Vitamin E), Retinyl Palmitate, Aloe Vera (Aloe Barbadensis) Extract, Propylparaben, Ascorbyl Palmitate (Vitamin C), May Contain (+/-): Mica, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, 77492, 77499), Chromium Oxide Greens (CI 77288), Ultramarines (CI 77007)
Ethylhexyl Palmitate on CosDNA.com has Comedogenic level of 4 but Im using a different bronzer that has this and there's no breakout. The suspects are: Octyldodecanol, Cera alba, Retinyl Palmitate.

I have wasted so much money on all different blushes.....but this is by far is the best and worth the dosh considering I use it every single day.
I'm usually NW20 and find this can be as dramatic as I want. For everyday I simply 'swirl' a bit onto my cheekboneless cheeks and slightly sweep up and boom!- CHEEKBONES! I was worried i would be glittery but it is more of a dewy look so I'm able to wear it as everyday makeup despite needing to look as though not really wearing any so perfect. The trick is to not be be too heavy handed. For a night out, I've popped a smidge of Stila's convertible colour ontop of this, onto the apples of my cheeks for a pop of colour too. Great item, travels well, can either be smudged straight from stick without it smearing your foundation or put onto your fingers. I guess you could always swirl it on using a brush but I'm just too lazy!
Thanks to this I have streamlined my everyday make up bag! you need this in your life ;)

Seems like I'm the only one who wasn't floored by this Multiple.
Got a nice sample size tube from Birchbox and was thrilled to finally test an infamous NARS blush. Well, it's nothing fabulous, if not downright overrated. Maybe the color wasn't right for my skintone. I have light medium skin tone and prefer my blushes peachy or pink. When using this as a contouring blush, it only made my moderately oily skin even more oily and ..dirty looking. The light shimmer here enlarges my skin's imperfection (pores, some hyperpigmentation) and seems to rub my foundation away.
No matter what I use to apply this, be it a brush or directly on my cheeks, it just doesn't work for me. I'll stick with drugstore powder blushes, thanks.

Women of color you need this in your life! Simply the best highlighter for darker skin! It makes the skin glow without looking ashy. Put a dab of this on your cheeks and go from drab to fab! Loves it loves it loves it!!!!

Simply amazing. It gives the color of a blush with the glow of a bronzer and highlights your cheekbones like, well, like a highlighter. It looks great on me like a blush in the winter when I'm pale and in the summer when I'm tan it looks like a bronzer. Very versatile. I sometimes layer a bit of Orgasm on top to give it more depth and staying power for a going-out look.

Shimmery apricot bronzey shade. It looks gorgeous on neutral/warm tan to medium skin. My fav look is to wear it on my cheeks and a bit on my lips with some apricot gloss on top(Zoya Hot Lips in Sorbet is my fav). It gives you that sexy glowy beachy summertime look. It's perfect if you love Jennifer Lopez's sunkissed makeup style. It's my fav multiple.

After wearing "flat" bronzers for so long I decided I wanted a dewy look and while there is a touch of glimmer in South Beach it fades. I may have made this a tad more dewy and less cream to powderish. The color is wonderful since it's not just a bronze, it has a hint of translucent peach in it giving it some depth. I can see this year round for a beach look in the dead of fall/winter. A nice departure from boring bronze. If it's possible for a bronzer to be youthful, this is it. I'll keep buying it, it's that good.

I've said this is cheap because in terms of value for money you will not get better - it lasts forever, I have three different colours, one I use every day and it has lasted me 3 years already! Very easy to use - a gentle sweep across cheekbones, dab chin and temples and blend - easy and perfect results. It is true that if the product gets too hot it can over soften and then deposits are left around the inside of the stick but otherwise the packaging is excellent too. Buy it you absolutely won't regret it. I find the south beach is best for bronzer and my skin fairly pale.
