Ten years ago, Jane
magazine described a quick way to get pretty in a bind: Burn a cork and line your upper lids with the ash. Um.
Besides the fact that it's kind of scary / dirty, what kind of girl can find a cork and a lighter before she can find her eyeliner?! (Wait, don't answer that).
Instead, NARS is trying a one-two-three seconds to beauty approach, using actual makeup. Their latest stick is called
The Multiple Tint, and it's designed to create a look for your cheeks, your lips, and
The effect creates the "monochrome beauty" trend spotted on runways - where pink eyeshadow, an intense pink lip, and a quick streak of blush were the way to modern style.
The product costs almost $40, which is a bit steep - but NARS is known for their amazing quality, and if you consider that you're getting an eyeliner, an eyeshadow, a lipstick, and / or a blush in one tube, it's not so bad.
