Oops, sorry about the dup reply. Sephora BB is acting weird the last few days. I can't even click on the Advice tab w/o some error coming up.

It's a weird concept to me that a product could be used on lips, eyes and cheeks. Even just lips and cheeks--totally different types of skin there.

 

Assuming it could be used in all those places (and I know from experience that crayon type things don't work well with my eyes, so that would leave the lips and cheeks), what holds me back from using this is that it's a roll-up tube of something. If it were more narrow like a lipstick, it may be okay for lips, but as it is, it's too thick to apply reasonably well on the lips w/o using a separate lip brush (this from someone who returned a Sugar lipstick because of this same issue).

 

As for the cheeks, which would be the primary reason that I would purchase this product, its form is too awkward for me to use. I don't mind as much having a cream blush in a compact, since I can just scoop a tiny bit out with a clean tiny spatula, transfer this to back of hand (to warm up) or a small plate, and then apply to cheeks with clean finger or cream-blush brush. But having a tube thing that rolls up, just not sanitary or user friendly to me. That is what holds me back from buying the Tarte blushes too.

 

I realize this is a personal preference and many women swear by the Nars Multiple and the Tarte cheek blushes, but I just can't get past the blush tube concept.

I think it is strange to use it on all these different areas as well. I'd probably just stick to my cheeks. I have a Tarte blush similar to this and I find it user friendly for me. I just put on a streak and blend it out.  I actually quite like how it looks, so I'm a bit intrigued by these.

I haven't tried the old ones, and I guess I won't now lol.  I hope these are nicer, some of the colors are pretty. I want a light pink blush, but I can't seem to find one that is noticeable.

I'm probably the only person on here that actually loves the Multiples but I wouldn't buy these purely because they are matte.  I like the simmer and I personally think that they are great for highlighting and I occasionally use them on my lips.  Maybe It's skin tone difference?  I have a deep complexion and I find that these show up well on my skin.  Especially South Beach and Lamu.

While, I have never tried to original multiples because I am more into dewy than shimmer on my face. being a woman of color (NC42 for reference) I would definitely be interested in trying the bronze shades as well as the poppy red. I love cream products so I will be giving at least two shades of the matte multiple a try. Bottom line people like what they like. Some people swear by smashbox products whereas my personal take is meh....I can take it or leave it.
