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 multifunction products do double—and sometimes even triple—duty.
1. 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. (Shown in Maui, $39, sephora.com)
2. Stila Convertible Color
This compact features soft, translucent color that’s equally at home on cheeks or lips. (Shown in Lillium, $25 stilacosmetics.com)
3. 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. ($28, benefitcosmetics.com)
4. 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. ($6, bigelowchemists.com)
5. Becca lip and 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. (Shown in Rosebud, $29, beccacosmetics.com)
