Nars Adelaide Illuminator review...

Swatched and blended out

You know when you're having your makeup done and it's really distracting because the lady (or gentleman!) doing it is wearing something gorgeous on their face and you just want to ask them what it is? I recently went to get colour matched for Nars Sheer Glow and the lovely girl doing the honours had what I can only describe as pure magic on her cheeks. It was, as the title of this post suggests, the Nars Illuminator in Adelaide, which I believe is part the Final Cut Collection. 

Its a lilac toned bright pink with a silver shimmer running through it, which makes it really wearable as an everyday shade blended onto the cheeks and up onto the cheek bones. It really brightens my complexion and I think it would really suit most skin tones. 

I've also found it a really great product to pop on underneath a powder blush. It gives matte pink blushers a bit of life, and also makes them last a lot longer so perfect for a night out or if you prefer a brighter cheek.

This probably won't be the last Nars Illuminator I'll be adding to my collection! What do you think?



  1. that looks really good, better than the revlon ones but i'm still an avid mac soft and gentle user! love the blog doll x

    1. I've never used Soft and Gentle I really need to try it!

  2. Funny your first sentence because that absolutely has happened to me, lol! I think the last time that happened, the person was wearing Benefit Sugarbomb haha :) This looks like a lovely highlighter, I love NARS in general so I can't imagine it'd let me down if I did splurge on it.

  3. Oh this looks lovely. What a nice finish and the packaging is divine too! :-) xx
