Welcome to the weekly review series where 5 women in our GLAMOUR office test out the latest products landing our Beauty Editors’ desks. This week we’re indebted to NARS for bringing the sunshine, even in the depths of winter. Its new collection of Tinted Glow Boosters (available in four shades from light to deep), offer a teensy bit in the way of coverage, but a whole lot in the way of glow. We gave it a road-test to see how it would fit into our makeup routine.
NARS Tinted Glow Booster, £28
Anita Bhagwandas, Contributing Beauty & Lifestyle Director, tries the shade Tangsi (medium deep)
This golden elixir makes the most beautiful illuminating serum on bare skin, but used underneath foundation it also adds a gentle healthy glow. It also doubles up as a brilliantly natural highlighter for cheekbones (and wherever else you’d want to highlight) because it’s not sparkly, but more of a soft, light-reflecting glow. As a matte girl, I’m totally won over.
Lottie Winter, Beauty Editor, tries the shade Simos (medium)
Is it a tinted moisturiser? Is it a highlighter? I’m still not quite sure. But I do know that I love it. It makes skin look a little sunnier and a little brighter with a believable healthy glow. I mixed a pump into my foundation, and then layered a little on top over cheekbones for an extra boost, but it could easily be worn alone, too.
