NARS Turks & Caicos Multiple Tint

NARS Turks & Caicos completes my trio of the new Multiple Tints ($38 each). I previously reviewed Beverly Hills and Cadaqués here and am equally thrilled with Turks & Caicos a bright orange shade that reminds me of an orange popsicle. Those who avoid orange (like me) should still try this one out. My first reaction was "orange?!" but having experienced the genius of NARS products, I knew I had to try it out. NARS has a way of making odd or bright colors look amazing. I don't know how they do it! Turks & Caicos has a sheer transparent-like tint that goes on a sweet peachy apricot with a hint of pink. For some reason, each multiple tint pulls a bit of pink on my skin. The color definitely shows up, but I will say that one swipe might leave you disappointed. Swipe it 2 to 3 times and then you will see the color better. On the plus side is that blending doesn't make the color disappear.



Swatched on the back of my hand (do note that this is washed out a bit due to the flash and for some reason my camera flash doesn't do so well with neon colored products hence the almost electric-orange glow on the multiple):




At this time I'm not sure if these are limited edition. I was told by my sales associate that they were (I found mine at Nordstrom instore), but I'm never really sure the sales associates know for sure until the product is sold out and not restocked. For more details on how they compare to the regular multiples, refer to my previous post on Beverly Hills & Cadaques.

  4. I was surprised how each of these colors looked on your skin (compared to how they swatched on mine) — but each one is absolutely beautiful.

    I REALLY love the color of both Cadaques and Turks & Caicos on you. Great choices!

  5. From what i know they are Limited Edition. So if they're out of stock, that's it. =) I like this one best but to fork out AUD$89 ... =( It's definitely a multipurpose gorgeous colour!!

  6. I bought this a couple of weeks ago and it's definately my favourite purchase for the summer.

    It's just perfect on my NC35-40 skin and lasts all day. Feels super comfortable on the skin and is so easy and quick to use. LOVE!

    I really really love it and have a terrible urge to buy a back up but that's just silly, right?! I'll never get through a whole stick...I hope!

  7. I keep thinking about this tint! I originally wanted this orange one but I felt that it was way too sheer/subtle for me. The Beverly Hills shade is a surprise winner for me - that said I should have my local Nordstrom order it for me!

  8. Oooh! You are making me want to go back for the other two (I just bought Cadaques). The sales associate tried out Turks & Caicos on me first, but I had just bought a MUFE HD blush in a similar color, so I went with Cadaques...which is beautiful!
