What’s That Twinkling in the Sky? Oh, That’s a Satellite of Love! NARS Satellite of Love Highlighter Blush

NARS Satellite of Love Highlighting Blush

“Kitty Glitter Enthusiast.” I’m thinking about adding that to my business cards, which currently read, “Assistant to the CEO, Tabs the Cat Industries, LLC.”

Made for cat ladiesI looked around online for a place to play Kitty Glitter for free, but I don’t know… I don’t trust those online casinos.

The couple hours I spent hootin’ and hollerin’ in front of that penny slot machine last weekend filled my eyes with sparkles, and I’ve been extra obsessed with glitter ever since.

It’s either that…or NARS Satellite of Love Highlighting Blush.

Like a Snickers bar, this $28 illuminating highlighting powder, one of 22 pieces in the new Andy Warhol Pop Holiday 2012 collection, really satisfies. :) It instantly brightens faces with its sheer, peachy powder and golden glitter.

Lately when glitter calls, I grab a skunk brush and carefully, lightly apply Satellite of Love on my upper cheekbones, down the bridge of my nose and atop my cupid’s bow. Careful is the key word, too; otherwise, we’re talkin’ disco diva territory (which I admit, sometimes I like).

Subtle or intense, depending on how many layers I apply, the shimmer shines the entire day.

If it sounds like something you’d like, try it paired with peachy blushes, like NARS Lustre, Madly or Lovejoy.

NARS Satellite of Love might not be right for every guy/gal, especially ones who prefer matte and satin finishes, but glitter lovers, you’re in luck.

    This looks very pretty and subtle, I like it and you know how much I love highlighters :)

    • Karen says:

      I wish the camera picked up more of the shimmer…it’s even more beautiful in real life!

      How was your long weekend? Did you guys do anything fun?

  2. This looks very pretty on you! I’m afraid it might sink into my big ol’ pores, though! :-/

      I know what ya mean. My pores can look pretty big if I’m wearing something too shimmery…the good thing about this highlighting blush, though, is that you can mellow the glitter out. Might be something to think about, or at least swatch next time you’re at Sephora. :)

  3. Nina says:

    Looks awesome on you, Karen!

  4. This looks like a great highlighter, I like. Not necessarily for myself, but I’d definitely use it on models or clients.

  5. It looks pretty but I wish the glitter was softer and more of a shimmering sheen, it looks lovely on your face though!

  6. Lulle says:

    It looks very natural on you! I already own a lot of highlighters, and I prefer them with a sheen rather than glitters, so I don’t think this is for me.

      Hi Lulle,

      Yeah, the glitter on this one is kinda big, so it might not work. How about something like Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector instead?

    This is so pretty! A little bit of glitter now and then can be nice. :-)

    I’m behind on my MBB reading! I was on vacation last week and after getting back I’ve been trying to get caught up with work and life back at home.

    Also, for the past couple of weeks we’ve been fostering a stray kitten my husband found at his work. When we found him he was about 8 weeks old and only 2 lbs! All the shelters we called were full, so we took him home with us. It was a bit tough at first trying to figure out how to get him a permanent home, but thankfully my sister-in-law is going to take him. I’m so happy about that b/c I’ll still get to see him on a regular basis.

    I will make sure to share some pix. I’m a bit biased, but he’s pretty darn cute. :-)

    • Karen says:

      Hi Ruchita,

      How was vacation? Did you do anything fun? I hope the kitties didn’t miss you too much.

      Can’t wait to see the latest addition to the fur fam!

      • Ruchita says:

        Vacation was fun! We went to South Beach and had a nice, relaxing time on the beach. The kitties did well while we were away. I think I missed them more than they missed me. :-)

        • Karen says:

          Glad to hear you guys had fun. I know you remembered to wear sunscreen so I won’t lecture you about it, LOL!

          Were the kitties extra lovey-dovey when you picked them up? THAT IS THE BEST!

  8. Mojito says:

    I was thinking about getting Miss Liberty, but this one is also veeeeery nice :) Looks pretty natural on you, so the glittery side makes me wonder…

  9. Anna says:

    I think I need this just for the name- one of my favorite Lou Reed songs!

  10. musical says:

    How gorgeous do you look, lady! This highlighter looks so natural on you! Very subtle, and not at all glittery! I might test-drive it during the weekend :).

    • Karen says:

      Thank you, Musical. :) How was your weekend? Did you get a chance to relax?

      • musical says:

        Oh yeah! Long weekend was FUN! Visited my folks on the East Coast and had a great time! So needed this meow time ;).

        How about you? Hope you had a really meow worthy long weekend as well :).

  11. The color is just gorgeous–but man, Monsieur Nars REALLY needs to tone it down with the glitter in my opinion. It would be nice if he had more of a balanced mix of mattes, satins, and glitters. Instead, all of his blushes are really in-you-face shimmery/glittery. I guess that’s his thing, but it’s so frustrating for me because I love the colors of the blushes but they always emphasize my pores/add too much shine to my already-oily skin :/
