Multipurpose Cosmetics: Two Products for the Price of One

by admin

Would you put lipstick on your cheeks? How about apply eye shadow to your lips? Probably not with most cosmetics, but some products have the magical ability to serve more than one purpose. It’s highlighter! No, it’s lipstick! No, it’s eye shimmer! Whether you want to save space in your makeup bag or just to save a little cash, these multifunctional products do double and sometimes even triple duty.


Nars The Multiple



The Multiple justifies its price by serving as at least five different products. The wearable cream-to-powder color sticks can be used as lip color, blush, eye shadow, highlighter, or body contour. Colors range from light, shimmery pinks to deep bronzes.


Stila Convertible Color



This compact features soft, translucent color that’s equally at home on cheeks or lips. 


Benefit Benetint



This cheek-and-lip duo comes in the perfect pink shade that just about everyone can wear to create a rosy glow. Use the brush to dab on a few drops for instant color.


Smith’s Rosebud Salve



This cult-favorite lip balm is great for moisturizing and healing chapped lips, but it doesn’t stop there—it also works wonders on dry knees and elbows, rashes, burns, and other blemishes. 


Becca Lip & Cheek Crème



Becca’s mirrored compact comes in four different, versatile colors that can be applied with a brush or with fingers for a natural flush.


Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat



Used on blemishes or under-eye circles, it’s a first-rate concealer. Used on brow bones, around the mouth, or on the cheeks, it’s a highlighter. Touche Éclat is YSL’s bestselling product.


Buxom Waterproof Smoky Eye Stick



This stick makes light work of creating fabulous eye looks. It can be used as a liner, as an all-over lid color, or blended to create a smoky eye. It even has a built-in sharpener—even more space saved.


Vincent Longo Double Duty Lip & Cheek Gel Stain



This line’s bestselling product is its versatile gel color, which can stain both lips and cheeks. Paired with the perfect moisturizer, it’s all you need in a travel or beach beauty bag. 


Jane Iredale Zap and Hide



This superpowered stick has one end with an anti-inflammatory botanical formulation to heal blemishes, and one end with a creamy concealer to hide them while they recede. It’s a double dose of brilliance.


Stila Cheek & Lip Stain



The brush on this multipurpose wand makes it easier to apply with precision, and the special formulation reacts with skin to personalize the color. The latest color, Yumberry Crush, even has a hint of shimmer.
