Review: NARS Miss Liberty Highlighting Blush.





(wearing MAC Desert Rose blush on top)

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! 

What do you think of this NARS highlighter?

  8. i really quite like this highlighter. it looks great on you. i usually use highlighters for my nose and chin and a bit on my forehead, not so much on my cheeks. for this reason i usually use something skin toned and not as pink as this color, but this would be perfect for the cheeks. also, just wanted to say your skin looks amazing in general!

  9. Ah you posted this at the wrong time - it's gorgeous but I've literally just placed an order for four of their blushes! I may have to make another sneaky order in a few weeks.

    I'm really getting into highlighters at the moment. I have moonbeam but i want to get more! It looks gorgeous on you. xx

  16. This is so pretty on you! I have Dior Amber Diamonds, but I wont repurchase it because I think it makes my face look shiny and not glowy.. this looks amazing though :) xxx

  17. I love your cheeks here. They're what I'm always trying to acheive.
    If you feel up to it, it would be great to see a video of how you do your face routine, specifically your cheeks.

  21. I was put off buying this because of the glitter, but if it is just an overlay i may check it out again. You always have such lovely make up. x

  22. I've always stayed away from highlighter because I don't have the best skin and I thought it would highlight my flaws but I've never thought of trying it under my blusher before. Thanks for the tip!

  23. this is stunning, I love highlighters but never really tried a powder one. I have just had a really moment of embarrassment when I realised that I have subconsciously ripped off your banner, using the same font as you. must must must spend the day changing that. cringe. sorry :)

  32. ooh I am totally addicted to highlighters! I also prefer powder over liquid for my cheeks. My favorite highlighter is definitely Too Chic by MAC - actually it looks quite similar to Miss Liberty!
