NARS Satellite of Love highlighter

NARS Satellite of Love highlighting blush: £21

I have a bit of a thing for highlighters. They're probably my favourite beauty product to use and can really transform the skin from drab and tired looking to bright and fresh. I've reviewed another NARS highlighter before (see my post here) so when I saw the press release for this new one a while back I was super excited to see how it would compare.

As part of the NARS Andy Warhol collection, Satellite of Love (named after the Lou Reed song, as he was part of the Factory) is an illuminating powder in a golden sand hue to give the skin a luminous glow. The light reflecting transparent pigments in the product are so flattering and work in unison with a blush or alone as they are marketed as 'highlighting blush powders'. I apply a wash of this with a Real Techniques Setting Brush after bronzer and/or blush, above the cheekbones (or where mine technically would be if you could see them) to give that extra something to the skin and really perk it up. This could also be used as an eyeshadow for when you're in a rush or just to add some depth to a matte colour I think. It's hard for me to pick a favourite out of the two I own, I'd say get this one if you're torn but then again Miss Liberty was made permanent so it may be the same case for this one!

Are you a fan of highlighting powders? What's your favourite - is it a NARS one (like me) or from a different brand?

  1. I love highlighters, I've never used a powder version though! I probably should though as I think they have a better finish than cream ones. I really want to try topshop's or clarins odyssey xx


  2. This looks gorgeous on you! I love highlighters as well- I think there's something quite luxurious about buying them, it feels like a real treat :)
