My obsession with NARS highlighter is real! They are so creamy, so pigmented, so lustrous! I started out using the cream illuminator in Copacabana and let me tell you, it is the perfect, Strobe-worthy highlighter, if you have a light skin tone.
I swore by Copacabana for forever and then one day while shopping at Sephora I came across New Order, a crazy pink highlighter with blue undertones and flecks of gold. I had to have it. Literally, I gasped upon the tester swatch. Unfortunately, due to error I walked out of Sephora with NARS Albatross shade instead and before returning It I decided to give it a swatch (even though at a glance it looked like every other highlighter to me.)
Well, it wasn’t!! It was this gorgeous, creamy highlighter, with golden orange, champagne iridescence. Intense!! I could see it working on many, many skin tones.
Other similar toned highlighter I have are lackluster compared to Albatross so, I decided to keep it and also order New Order which I also love as kind of a blush contour more than a true highlighter. It highlights but doesn’t Strobe. It’s so much fun. Especially with a pop of color on the eyes. It’s also strangely great on the forehead.
The packaging on the powder highlighter is nice and sleek, as well. Easy for travel, etc. They retail for $30.00 and are available at Sephora and NARS, to name a couple.
So, go out and try a “NARS highlighting blush” or illuminator! I get so many compliments. I swear, they won’t disappoint.
