NARS Satellite of Love Highlighting Blush

Reach to the Stars for a Satellite of Love

NARS Satellite of Love Highlighting Blush ($28.00 for 0.16 oz.) is described as a “sparkling gold sand.” It’s a peachy brown with a hint of orange and pale gold shimmer and sparkle. It adds warmth, a little tan coloring, and noticeable sparkle and sheen to cheeks. Chanel Lucky Stripes is similar but more shimmery than sparkly. NARS Miss Liberty is lighter, more beige. MAC How Beautiful! is very light and beige. Chanel Empreinte de Chanel is more golden, yellower.

The Highlighting Blush formula is supposd to impart a “luminous glow” that can be worn alone or paired with other cheek products.  This particular shade has a bit more sparkle than sheen, though a lot of the sparkle gets lost between the pan, your brush, and your cheek, but it did emphasize my pores just slightly.  It has decent color payoff (it’s about what you see in the pan) and buildable to the color you see in the pan.  Because it is a lighter shade overall, on deeper complexions, it is going to add very subtle warmth but not visible color–more a highlighter than anything else. Lighter complexions can use it as both a highlighter as well as a blusher (well, probably bronzer).  The texture was a bit on the dry side, but it was nice and blendable on the cheek.  It wore for seven hours before there was noticeable fading.

The sparkles do look like a little too much on the swatches. However, on your skin the blush looks amazing. You look really good. Your brows look especially wonderful.

I think this is really pretty on you, Christine!! I love your whole makeup look here. Where do you get all those cool earrings, if you don’t mind sharing? 🙂

I think this looks really pretty on you, Christine. It adds a really lovely warm glow. Your skintones are slightly darker and warmer than mine so I wonder if this would just end up looking sparkly orange on me instead of that ‘natural glow’. I do like this product, but one I would definitely need to test before buying.

I’m a little disappointed, I imagined it to a tad less orange when I saw it in the Sneak Peek section. But since you’r lighter in complexion than me, it might look more of a highlighter on my skin tone. It does look pretty as a blush on you though!

This would be perfect if the shimmer was way way finer. The color itself is gorgeous and it would be so pretty as an eye shadow too, but the shimmer is just too much for me to wear on a regular basis.

Very different – Albatross is more of a shimmer-sheen, not really sparkle. This has visible pieces of sparkle/micro-glitter!

I love this look on you Christine.

I like the shade. I personally would not wear this as a blush or a highlighter. I have large pores and the glitter would be way too much. Though, I would wear this as an eyeshadow.

Christine, any idea if the collection will be available on narscosmetics.com? I have an industry discount, and that’s the only place I can use it.
