NARS Holiday 2011: G-Spot Multiple

As I type in the word G-Spot in the title of this post, it strikes me that it may be at the peril of receiving Google search visitors gone astray who might be interested in an altogether different subject than cosmetics. I feel like I should offer some sort of disclaimer:  "I'm sorry guys, but you've arrived at the wrong place. There will be no advice offered here on how to enhance your love technique with your lady friends. Only makeup is discussed on this site..." 

Moving along... ;) 

Described by the NARS website as a "rich, gold-infused rose hue" this is a flattering shade that imparts a natural-looking flush, as if you've just gone for a run in the park (although in my case I would be pale from exhaustion as my exercise habits lately can be likened to those of that slow-moving forest dweller, the sloth). 

Multiples currently retail for $39, can be used on eyes, cheeks and lips, and are enriched with Vitamin E and acai oil. I've only used my Multiples as blush or highlighter, but I think I'll give this a try as a lip color next!

One swipe of G-Spot applied directly from the tube


G-Spot appears to be somewhat dark in the tube, but becomes more sheer as it is blended out, making it easily wearable even by those with fair skin.

Both swatches blended together

When I first saw G-Spot it reminded me of a cream version of my long-time favorite Oasis blush. Below are a few comparisons to give you a better idea of the actual color. I wish I had Malibu for comparison as well, but no longer have it in my collection.

I went a little heavier on the application in the photos below than I normally would so you could see the color well.

  1. It's such a beautiful shade on your cheeks. I know for sure I can't pull it off due to the red tones. The name is surely interesting!

  2. Hi Kristie, thanks for commenting. It does look red toned in my photos but I think my camera made it look that way. In sunlight it makes colors appear much warmer. Might be worth a look in person if you're ever near a Nars counter :)

  3. Ooh, Ooh, OOH - I think I need this! Since I'm darker than you, I wonder how it'll look on me!

  4. Hey, Lexi, I think this should look great on you! It's a pretty shade & worth trying out :-)

  5. Looks a lot darker than I was expecting it to, but seems alright once sheered right out:) I've not tried the Multiples before, do you wear them alone as a blush or do you layer powder on top?

  7. Hi emmabovary, Yes, you can definitely wear them alone as a blush, but I have also layered powder blush on top for longer-lasting color. The lighter Multiples like 'Copacabana' and 'Maldives' make nice highlighters :)

    Hi Jessica, I think it's a great color! :)

  8. I wonder how different it is from the Maui Multiple (one of my faves)? I'll have to take a closer look! :)

    Is it weird that seeing a brand new untouched multiple makes me excited and happy? (And WHY does this sentence sound so dirty??? lol)

  9. Hi Liz, I think (but may be mistaken) that it is a lot darker than Maui. It's like a plummy rose with subtle shimmer.

    LOL for your last sentence. Not so weird, I quite like the look of a virgin Multiple myself! :) haha

  13. Hi Cafe Bellini, Although this is very nice, I think I like Orgasm a little bit better as well, I am always drawn to light peachy-pink shades! :)

  14. Your intro to this post made me LOL! Meanwhile, you look gorgeous, as always. Such beautiful features. What lipstick product(s) are wearing? Love it xxx

  15. Hi Rachel, Thanks so much! I have a pretty lame sense of humor but try my best :) I am wearing NARS Pago Pago lipstick from a couple of collections ago with Trish McEvoy lipliner in Barely There. xx
