NARS 413 BLKR Illuminator Review Lamour Josie
The NARS 414 BLKR Illuminator is a boutique/online exclusive product, which I purchased whilst staying in Caesars Palace earlier this year. It's named after the brand's flagship New York City boutique, and was released as part of a collection inspired by the store. The collection is designed to be both bold and timeless, which is a pretty apt description for this highlighter. I already own one NARS illuminator in the infamous shade Orgasm, so I knew I'd get on with the consistency; it's a lightweight liquid, which somehow manages to add a natural light to skin without looking greasy or glittery. However, it was the shade of this product that really impressed me.

This illuminator is a beautiful, warm shade which adds the perfect amount of glow to skin. It's somewhere between champagne and opal, in that it's a golden, pearlescent shade which looks stunning when applied along the cheekbones. Only the tiniest amount of product is needed - too much and I'd be wary of looking a little bit shiny - to give a seriously natural light to the skin. I like to pat this on top of my foundation, but you could also use it underneath for a more subtle look, or mixed in with your foundation for an all over glow.

The NARS 413 BLKR Illuminator has quickly become my favourite highlighting product, and I would definitely recommend giving any of the NARS illuminator range a go if you're looking to branch in to the world of liquid highlighters.
