It's the season for glowing, (faux) tan skin and with all of the products on the market right now, it's easier than ever to achieve that look. However, choosing the right product can be challenging, especially when two similar items such as Nars the Multiple in St. Barth's and Vincent Longo Hydro Stick in Gold Solare exist. Both are beautiful for your eyes, cheeks, and lips, both are light in color and texture, and both create a sexy-tanned illumination on the skin. Take a look at my comparative table below to see which item I feel is more splurge worthy.
|Nars the Multiple||Vincent Longo Hydro Stick||Advantage|
|Texture||It has a light, cream-to-powder finish. It blends well and the color is buildable.||One strike is all you need since the color is deep. It blends well and is designed to create a wet, dewy effect. Also it has an slightly cooling effect.||Nars. I prefer the lighter color since it allows you to keep layering until you reach your desired tan.|
Leaves a subtle, pearlized glow on your skin that catches the light but isn't too overbearing.
Has a powerful and vibrant high-shine, frosty finish.
|Nars. I'm not crazy about icy frosts.|
|Color||Medium-taupey-bronze. Great for any skin tone.||Bronze with a twinge of orangey-copper. Great for those with olive or dark skin.||Nars. It's softer and more versatile.|
|Price||$37||$25||Vincent Longo by 12 bucks.|
