Product Review; "NARS Illuminator"
Amid the search for Summer favorites, highlighting products seems to be the most longed for to elude a cosmetic collector's grasp.
NARS highlighting powders have always been among some of my personal faves, but in extensive heat, powders can have more density than comfort can tolerate. NARS Illuminator on the other hand is a light-weight blend that includes unique ingredients like Black Currant and Raspberry Seed Oils that absorbs immediately into the skin leaving behind a light layer of micro-particle shimmer that reflects hints of color.
Available in recognizable cult favorite shades like Orgasm and Laguna, the newest release also offers Copacabana (glistening pearl tones with a 3D finish) and Super Orgasm (a heavier flush of the original). All are designed to give skin luminosity but, because of the thin formula, can be paired or mixed in with foundation or tinted moisturizer to create full on glow for months outside sunshine.
The only issue, I seemed to have with the product is the impact it actually has requires very little in application. Packaged in a convenient squeeze tube, just a pinch of the casing releases plenty for one application. Though I may have found that perfect Summer highlighter, every time I reach for it, I have to remind myself to loosen my grip.
