This is a brilliant, brilliant product.Swatched on the back of my hand, Albatross shows up not as the white-gold it appears in the pan but as a delicate, moonlit "glow," as if my skin is naturally, subtly, luminescent. It gives the same effect to my cheeks and to my eyelids, where I wear it as a wash.I never thought that I, with my huge pores and oily skin, would ever have use for a highlighter, but Albatross makes me look glowy, not oily, and it doesn't accentuate my pores at ALL.Brilliant stuff indeed <3

I ordered this highlighter sight unseen and was worried that I may not like it enough to have spent $30 bucks. But fortunately for my conscience, I adore Albatross! I'm extremely fair-skinned and it still works beautifully with my complexion. I love to use it as a highlight for my cheekbones, nose and cupid's bow. I even use it from time to time as a highlight on my brow bone. Its texture is so silky and it does what you need it to! A little goes a long way. So, despite the high price, you should be able to get a lot of wear from one product. I definitely recommend this! It's my favorite pearl/white highlighter! I only own a couple things from NARS but this product has made me a believer in the quality of their line! I'm now curious to try more.

So many highlighters, so little time to use them all up!I had never been bothered by Albatross despite the hype, MAC's By Candlelight has been my highlight of choice for some time now (despite this I seem to have a disturbing number of highlighting products) but I had a £20 N.centive for Space NK and couldn't see anything else that tickled my fancy so I bought into this for a whole 50p.The sheen this leaves on my skin is beautifully delicate and it's a great highlight for eyes and brow making eyes look bright and awake. This is one of those products that make you see how you could streamline your makeup bag and save yourself a fortune.I do love this highlighter but I'm not sure I'd buy it again, you use so little powder that it is unlikely I would need to any time soon but if I find myself in the same situation where it will only cost me 50p then I might just do it.

Absolutely gorgeous golden sheen! I'm a mac nc50/ bobbi brown warm almond and this looks amazing on my skin tone. I dust it lightly on cheekbones, forehead, bridge of nose and give it a few mins to settle with my facial oils it looks beautiful. You will not be disappointed!! Pricey worth every penny :-)

My most favourite highlighter ever!I usually apply this on the triangle below my eyes, the inner corner of my eyes. Extremely pricey, but I find it worth it!

I absolutely love this highlighter!! I'm always on the lookout for products that leave my face glowing and gorgeous. Albatross did just that. It looks very white in the package, but leaves a sheen golden glow on the skin. It literally makes my face look radiant and glowing. I have received numerous compliments on my skin since I've been using it. A little bit goes a looong way. You won't need to buy this again for many many years. I apply it on top of my cheekbones, bridge of my nose and under my eyebrows. Thanks nars for another fabulous product!

The highlighter is absolutely gorgeous. The powder is very finely milled which gives your cheeks a beautiful sheen. It appears white but it shows up as a golden sheen. It's perfect for the summer! Love it!

This is absolutely gorgeous! I've been using this for 2 months now. It's very pigmented. A little of this is all you need. I love how this gives me such a nice glow, not too much, just perfect. I would use this on my tear ducts and my cheeks. I get compliments all the time :-)

This gives me what no foundation has ever been able to: G-L-O-W. In my 50s, no less! I apply with a natural dark hair bronzer brush. The powder is easy to see on the brush, and therefore easy to control. I sweep this very lightly over my temples, cheekbone, jawline--the aforementioned cursive "E." And a little across the bridge of my nose. After foundation and blush. As others have written, it doesn't shimmer all silvery and metallic and fishscale-like. It doesn't accentuate pores; in fact, on the contrary - it blurs and refines. The first product for which I live in fear of discontinuation. Pleeease, Mr. Nars, keep making this miraculous stuff.
