NARS Albatross Highlighter

Albatross was my favourite highlighter for quite some time, I used to use it everyday, however sleeks rose gold blush came along and change it all. Don't get me wrong Albatross is a beautiful highlighter, but compared to the sleek highlighter, albatross comes off as a bit stark.
In its defence I would say that it's a product that gets better as the day goes on and my skin gets a little bit oiler, it give such a beautiful glow to my cheek bones, that's when I'm reminded why I loved it so much. Also I've found that when all of my blush has worn off at the end of the day, this highlighter is still going strong, so the lasting power is fantastic.

The highlighter looks white in the pan, but once it is swatched, you can see it blends out into a beautiful gold, I feel like the tone of gold is really universal, I've seen people of all different skin tone hail this as their favourite, so it really is a product for everyone. 

Overall I think Albatross is a great highlighter, and if you know how to work with it you can achieve an amazing look. It retails at £21 which is very pricey, but I don't regret buying it, it's a product that I fall in and out of love with, but I will definitely repurchase when I run out.
