When I turned 35 I really started seeing something I didn’t like: my face was falling. Anyone understand what I’m talking about? I’m sure I’m not alone. In particular, my cheekbones weren’t as defined and cheeks could be droopy – in particular when I was tired. At 40, it’s just worse. One day I was at Holt Renfrew browsing the beauty counters and stopped at NARS, one of my favourite brands from early days. It is that day that I was introduced to “The Multiple”, a multi-purpose shimmer stick that actually lifts my face back into place.
The woman who sold it to me obviously thought my face was falling too because she immediately wanted to do my make-up to help me “glow”. The one thing I noticed is that once she was done with the foundation and blush, she went straight for this creamy shimmery stick in a colour called “G-Spot” and used it on my cheekbones, above my eyebrows, and on my nose. That day I learned that make-up can actually lift your face.
François Nars is the man behind this innovation, which can also be used on eyes, lips and body. Its unique creamy formula and sheer color blends create shimmering accents; contours or dynamic highlights to add definition to any part of the body. My cheeks just love the stuff. Added benefit? It’s enriched with Vitamin E and açai oil for antioxidant benefits.
NARS “The Multiple” is available at all NARS counters or online for $39.00
