Nars Illuminator?

Has anyone tried Nars Illuminator? I'm currently using Clarins Instant Light Perfector but I would like to try something else? I like a dewy look as I wear mineral powder so I would put it over my moisturiser.

Kittykat7- you need Dior Glow Maximiser. Seriously, this product is awesome. Apply after moisturiser and before makeup. Looks scarily sheeny on it's own, but one the foundation is on. it makes skin look alive, and lit from within. Can't comment on the NARS as never used it, but I think the Dior is the way to go.

Thanks I'll check out the Dior. I'll see if I can get samples. I seem to be react with products if there is too much alcohol in them. We have Mecca store that give out samples so I'll get that shade in the Nars illuminator.

Hourglass' Ambient Lighting Powder in Luminous Light is beautiful if you want a dewy look.. Not shimmery and gives you a real lit from within glow.

I have Copacobana in the multiple and love it. It's more useful for striping on specific areas than all over.

Cheaper options to the Clarins would be L'Oreal Lumi something (in a skinny white pump bottle) or Revlons Skinlights. Both good for mixing with foundation, or with primer for a more subtle look.

Thanks for all recommendations. I was looking at the Ambient lighting powder as they sell that in Mecca. Also the Multiple. I'll check out the Revlon Skinlights. I've tried the Loreal Lumi but seem to react to it but I did like it.
