A busy working woman loves nothing more than a multitasking product, and the Nars  Multiples have become a cult favorite for their double-duty lip and cheek capabilities. Now there is a new spin on the classic — matte. Truthfully, I could probably get away with nothing but two Nars Matte Multiple  ($39) sticks in my makeup kit: the milk chocolate Vientiane shade to contour and cover lids, then the rich rose Laos shade on cheeks and lips. While you might be thinking that this makeup stick would be dry, it glides on silky smooth. The color range has both brights and neutrals, but the darker end of the spectrum is especially useful for women with brown skin (like me). You can easily blend the color with your finger to maintain the matte texture or with a damp sponge for a dewy finish that's not too shiny. My entire makeup routine just got condensed down into stick form. It doesn't get much easier (or more portable!) than that.
