I bought this NARS highlighter recently (see more detail in my new video) as I’m a massive fan of NARS products, I have two of their blushes (soon to be three…) which are Orgasm and Deep Throat and they are my most used products.
I love wearing highlighter, it really adds so much – if you’re after a glowing, naturally flawless complexion I always think you’re on to a winner with highlighter. I don’t have the best skin, but I always seem to get compliments on it, and this is usually down to the boost that highlighter gives me.
I prefer powder highlighters to liquid, for my cheeks anyway. I apply this after foundation but before my blusher – I find this gives the most natural result. I only really apply this to my cheeks, and very lightly. Sometimes I apply it down my nose and run the brush around my face to give a bit more of a glow but I don’t really find it necessary.
I only use liquid highlighters (like Benefits Highbeam) on my brow bone etc. but save a powder for my cheeks.
This highligher is a sort of gold-beige, at first I found it was rather glittery, but I think this was just the top layer as I’ve swatched it a few times since and found that it’s just a really fine highlighter which leaves a lovely, natural glow to my cheeks. I always feel like highlighters go well with any blusher, I chose a matte one today because I felt like it should have been a sparkle overload otherwise!
Overall, another winner from NARS! I love all their products, and their shades (although there’s not many of them) are all so gorgeous. I think I’ll try Albatross after this as I do want to try more of their highlighters.
This product was meant to be a Limited Ed. but I think it has gone into the main collection as it’s on the NARS website!
