Contouring vs. highlighting: Which side do you stand on? Some swear allegiance to the former, while others will only illuminate, not (throw) shade. For those of you who have been stuck in a dilemma, Nars’ latest product wants you to know: You can have the best of both worlds.

The Sculpting Multiple Duo is based on the brand’s best-selling Multiple, an all-in-one product that can be applied on the cheeks, eyelids and lips to highlight these features. This new iteration, which comes with a darker shade, has an added function: When blended into skin, it helps to create contours on your face that will enhance your natural features. The lighter shade has the same purpose as before: Provide a sheer wash of colour to illuminate the high points on the face. And yes, they’re available in some of the brand’s most popular shades.
