NARS Star Babe Multi-Use Gloss ($26.00 for 0.16 oz.) had a pink-tinted translucent base with flecks of pink and gold sparkle. I thought the base would come through a touch, but I couldn't tell that it existed whether I applied it to my eyes, lips, or cheeks. The consistency was lightweight, smooth, almost creamy, and mostly non-sticky; there was a more velvety, slightly clingy feel to it when I applied it to my lips, though it wasn't drying or uncomfortable to wear.
As a cheek and brow bone highlighter, it applied most easily over bare skin, as it was most foolproof to spread and blend out the gloss without worrying about disturbing other products underneath it. However, longevity on bare cheeks was around six hours before the gloss started to move around noticeably, whereas patted over a set base helped it last closer to eight hours before it started to make my base a bit patchy. It wore quite well as a brow bone highlight with minimal movement after eight hours, but it did have a tendency to darken any powder eyeshadow that met it (even if not under it directly).
As a gloss, it lasted three hours and was comfortable to wear, but the shimmer/sparkle didn't come through as noticeably on my lips as one would expect based on the initial swatch or looking at it in the tube! It had moderate shine but was a little lackluster with respect to the sparkles.
