Beauty Recommendation: Nars Body Illuminator

I am a redhead, which means I am not naturally tan unless I spend several days in the sun. So far this summer, I have not been able to be in the sun as much as I normally like. I have sworn off tanning beds and mystic tans are certainly not my first choice. I do love airbrush tans, but sometimes they are not the most convenient, and I have had a bad experience where I ended up being the color of an Oompa Loompa.

So, on to the point of this post....

I finally found a "bronzer" that looks natural and does not streak. It is NARS Body Illuminator, and it really isn't a true bronzer. It doesn't stain your skin or give you a dark tan/gold/orange color. It is a bronzing product that illuminates the skin. It gives a bronze glow, but you don't look too glittery or shiny. I love the finish it gives my legs, and you can keep rubbing it in until there are no streaks or uneven marks. It will also come off with soap and water.

If you're looking for something that will make you really tan, then this is not the product for you. It is pretty shear, but it does take the bright white out of your skin and give you a healthy glow at the same time. You can use it all over the body; I have used it on my chest before too.
