NARS St. Barths Highlighting Powder (2018)NARS St. Barths Highlighting Powder (2018) ($38.00 for 0.49 oz.) is a medium-dark copper with warm, orange undertones and a metallic sheen. It had good color coverage in a single layer, though it took two layers for full coverage (if desired). The powder had a smooth, firmer consistency in the pan, but I had no trouble picking up product on my typpical, go-to highlighter brushes (both fan and tapered). It applied beautifully my skin and blended out with little to no effort on my part--it felt like the type of product that did the work for you. The finish was strong and shiny but did not accentuate my skin's natural texture to my eye. It wore well for nine hours on me before fading a bit.
