NARS Coucher de Soleil Highlighter Palette ($49.00 for 0.36 oz.) contains a rich gold, medium copper, and dark plum with frosted to metallic finishes. All three were rather pigmented with smooth, blendable textures that were easy to work with on my skin. They lasted for eight and a half hours on me, too, which was great to see.
They’re not listed as part of the Dual Intensity formula, though they felt a lot like it (firmer but not stiff, a little dry to the touch but very blendable and don’t appear dry or dusty on the skin), and the description of the formula was similar–use dry for “shimmering veil of second-skin color” or wet for a “high-impact glow.” All three shades were quite shimmery applied dry, and they were metallic when applied with a damp brush. I’d disagree with these being “a shimmering veil” or “second-skin color” in any way dry–all three were mostly opaque to opaque dry, which is where the palette fell “short.”

When applied wet, these highlighters work with the skin’s surface to create a supernatural glow. The three shades are designed to layer endlessly and illuminate all skin tones. They can be applied dry for a shimmering veil of second-skin color, or wet for a high-impact glow that instantly blends into skin. They can be worn alone or layered—on the face or eyes to enhance your natural features.
