Double Take

NARS Double Take Overexposed Glow Highlighter ($42.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a medium gold with warm, orange undertones and a luminous sheen. It seemed more metallic initially but ended up applying with a softer finish that did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture.

The consistency was smooth, moderately dense, and had no powderiness at all; it felt similar to the brand’s Dual-Intensity formula to me. It had good pigmentation that was easy to sheer out or build up to truly full coverage if desired. The highlighter wore well for eight and a half hours on me.

A part of me is disappointed that this is not suitable for me, but the other part is extremely grateful, LOL! I may have picked up a good 20 or so highlighters over the past few months… I really only wanted this because it’s NARS, and because Man Ray. However, it’s still really pretty, and I imagine it working beautifully across many skintones.

Hi Christine

This looks SO beautiful – the presentation, the finish – EVERYTHING. But reading that it’s got warm, orange undertones and seeing how much more orange it is than a few other highlighters that are already too orange-toned for me had stopped me from twitching over wanting this…it just wouldn’t work for me at all. So beautiful on you though, Christine!

I know I probably gonna be annoying saying that this highlighter is worth a splurge ๐Ÿ˜‰ I just got it today and itโ€™s very pretty champagne gold, not orange at all. The colour is super flattering because itโ€™s on the warm-neutral side. Iโ€™m very pale and Iโ€™m surprised how it looks on my skin. Usually I have the same issues with highlighters – most of them turn too orange/ yellow on me.

According to Sephora’s website, it isn’t even available within 150 kms of me (it might be arriving though – I saw the empty spots in the Nars gondola for the Man Ray stuff) – considering Champagne Pop is too warm for me and this looks more orange than Champagne Pop, I won’t even consider getting it unless I can try it in-store first and then, if it looks great, I will change my mind but I won’t buy it unless I can try it first.

I’ll have to check this out, I like the description of orange undertones and a luminous sheen finish.
This wasn’t originally something I was planning to keep an eye, but this review has changed my mind. ๐Ÿ™‚

So lovely, but I already have Champange Pop and it’s a little dark for me. I am eager to see how the rest of the collection comes out as I like the look of several items.

Also Christine, did something happen tool the best of holiday items list you had? I can’t seem to find it on mobile anymore.

There’s an error that has to be addressed, but my brother-in-law is currently under mandatory evacuation due to California wildfires, and it really is not a priority given that situation at this time. Once he’s available, it will definitely be fixed – I just don’t know when that will be.

Christine, I’m so sorry to hear your in-laws have been deeply affected by the devastating wildfires in CA. Praying for safety for those evacuated and those battling the fires.
