I am new to this product as I have only used it a couple times before purchasing it today at Sephora. I love the way it highlights my cheekbones, temples and cupids bow. It blends flawlessly into my skin and just a little goes a long way. The gold tones in the highlighter have the ability to give that angelic glow, really accentuates the features it highlights and not a lot of makeup is needed in addition. I am excited to use this more in creating more looks. I can understand why this is such a raved about cult beauty product.
I actually ended up returning this product as I found that in brighter light it was adding WAY too much shimmer to the areas I applied it and it looked porn-star-ish, and I was careful to use this very sparingly. I may give the multiple another try in a shade like albatross or one of the colored ones but for now I have moved on to a highlighter I am much happier with that contains no shimmer and just gives a nice glow.
I LOVE this product. I got this as part of Saks Fifth beauty set that came with the Mark Jacobs bag two years ago (5 or 6 high end full sized products for $100!). I had to call a lot of Saks locations to find it and I found it somewhere in upstate NY (I live in Cali) but I am so glad I did.
Anyway, this product is great. I have many highlighters (Benefit's, Stila, etc.) but this is my favorite. My mom was going to a wedding and I put this on my mom- at first she was didn't want me to come near her with this fearing that she would end up looking like a shiny alien or something but after I put it on her she was so happy with the results... my mom said that it's subtle yet so pretty. I wholeheartedly agree! In fact, she loved it so much she wanted to get one. A little bit goes a long way with this product so I cut mine with floss and gave her half... Even with half of the product, I think I will be set for at least another year...
This is not a cheap product but I will pay full price for this and rebuy it since I love the subtle sheen and it's appropriate for office and play. I would definitely recommend this to my friends without hesitation. I love it.
I've had this product for years and use it primarily on my cheekbones as highlighter. I use it mostly during the summer for accent. It's fast to apply and easy to blend. Definitely will be purchasing another one when this one runs out....it lasts forever.
I use this soley as a highlight above my cheekbones. It gives me such a nice glow in a subtle way.
Ok so I'm African American so when looking for a highlighter I want something that makes my skin glow without looking ashy. I hears great things about this highlighter so I decided to get it. So when I first got it and used it, it made my skin look ashy. Not cute at all. Bit since I'm a girl that never gives up on something ( especially a 30 dollar something) so I decided to try it again. This time I very lightly put some on my cheekbones and finally I got some glow!!!! So I guess the key to this stuff (for me at least) is to apply it very lightly! But overall good stuff!
AMAZING highlighter! Put it on your cheekbones, in the inner corners of your eyes, and even on your lips for an amazing "fresh faced" look.
A definite staple of mine for the last decade. It does a great job as a highlighter, very pretty and subtle. I apply it to my finger and then apply to my cheekbones, brow, inside the eye, collar bone...really, anywhere I want to "pop". It's pricey but last forever.
This is a good product for highlighting purposes, but I sort of feel that it's over rated. I was at Sephora, and I broke down and bought this because my Everyday Minerals champagne powder that I normally use for the same purpose isn't very travel friendly. Plus, I wanted to see if I was really missing out by not owning Copacabana. Yes, the shade is truly unique. Believe me, I've looked everywhere and I can't find a good dupe of this. And it's so travel friendly! But the effect of the product is the same as my EDM powder. Besides, Copacabana disappears into my skin as I blend it, leaving behind only the fine shimmer. But I'm not taking off points for that, as I believe that's what its intended to do. Overall though, I don't feel like it's worth the high price. I'll keep it in my train case, but in the future I think I'm going to look for a travel friendly highlighter that's a bit cheaper. continued >>
I'm so glad this was in the NARS 9941 palette or I would've never known how great this product is. This multiple doubles as a brow and cheek bone highlighter. It's a creamy consistency and a little swipe goes a long way. I hit pan and when I completely run out I'll definitely go buy a regular size despite how pricey it is. I think this will always be a staple for me.
I never had my eye on this, but a NARS MA insisted I try it. And indeed, this is the HG highlighter I've been searching for! It lends a gorgeous pearly glow without being too sparkly, and the creamy texture blends so easily. I use this every day now, under blush, on my brown bones and on the bridge of my nose. I can't recommend this highly enough - I actually look forward to putting it on! I will repurchase forever, despite the cost - it's worth every penny. Also, I love the rubbery NARS packaging, and this is a very convenient tube.
