NARS Banc De Sable Highlighter Palette | $49

“A palette with three, universally flattering highlighters to illuminate the eyes and cheeks, while an ultra-versatile wet/dry formula takes you from sheer shimmer to an intense glow.”

“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.”

“3 x 0.11 oz/ 3.4 g Highlighter in Rivage (glistening pearl), Salé (shimmering peach champagne), Embruns (metallic rose gold).”

This palette is small but mighty! I have been eyeing this since it was announced and the second it was released I checked out so fast I forgot to add samples in my Sephora cart. That’s how you know I was thirsty haha.The moment I got this I took pictures and bathed in these highlighters and I was not disappointed. I don’t own any Nars highlighters but I’m going to have to add more to my collection because I fell hard for this palette.

I was definitely impressed with this travel sized palette but I can’t say I’m surprised because I don’t think I own anything in my Nars Collection that I don’t love. All shades are super creamy and pigmented with no chunky glitters – these go on smooth and blend so well. The shades are all wearable for my NC30 completion and I love how versatile it is. I can either get a subtle glow when using this or glow from the heavens. The lightest shade is my go to for an inner corner and brow bone highlight, the middle shade is my favorite all over the face highlighter and the darkest shade is more of a bronzer for me but I’ve been using it as a highlighter and it’s gorgeous! You guys know how obsessed I am with the ABH That Glow Kit and that’s still my number one but this Nars palette is definitely my number two and a must have for me.

Oh and I love that the packaging isn’t the standard matte they have which gets dirty super fast. I hate dirty makeup so I’m always having to wipe down my blushes, bronzers, and lipsticks from this brand. The cover has a glossy finish, it’s sturdy but not bulky, and the mirror inside is really good. A lot of people have been complaining about the size but I think it’s perfect and the price is reasonable for 3.4 ounces of highlighter that I will probably never even hit pan on anyway.

This is limited edition and a Sephora exclusive. If this palette is your cup of tea and the price tag doesn’t bother you – run! I have no idea how this has lasted so long on the shelves so get it while you still can. It’s a must have in my opinion. The quality is great and I think Nars did the damn thing on this palette.
