Nars Liquid Highlighters02

NARS has recently expanded its illuminator range to include two new colors. I love these liquid aluminizes. To me, the liquid form can look more natural than some powders because they can be worked into foundation (and even worn mixed in or under foundation for a subtle effect). Unlike some lines, NARS Illuminators are beautifully formulated, never sticky or heavy, and give the perfect amount of sheen to add a healthy-fabulous glow. Their generous size and travel-friendly packaging make these perfect additions to your makeup collection this summer.

NARS 413 BLKR ($__) adds a classic pearl shade to its Illuminator line. This color is so universal, or all skin tones and types. It looks amazing with many of the NARS BLKR line as well–those burgundy-based classics really look amazing with this beautiful shade.  This shade is part of NARS 413 BLKR Collection additions, and at NARS Boutiques.

NARS Hot Sand ($30/1.0 oz.) adds a pearlized warm peach-gold to this line. Unlike the existing Orgasm and Super Orgasm (which have a strong pink-peach tone), Hot Sand is a softer, more neutral color. This is available at Nordstrom, NARS online (part of the NARS Summer 2014 Color Collection: Adult Swim, Bloomingdales and Barneys New York.Nars Liquid Highlighters05

  1. I’m in love with highlighters and I need to try these :)

  2. What is your personal opinion when comparing the Armani fluid sheers to the Nars highlighters? I personally find the Armani a far more elegant formula.

    • I find myself reaching for both, actually. The Armani has a very fine formula, and the look is more subtle. Still, Liz and I have gotten into arm-wresteling over the NARS–the formula is amazing. I know that Hot Sand was used on runways for the Summer ’14 shows and I thought it looked fabulous. Also, because I travel I really appreciate the packability of the NARS.

  3. Hot Sand looks gorgeous and perfect for warmer complexions!
