Looks like its just white powder in a black case to me.....but put it on? My GOD. Its luminous. Angels bathe in this....Its gold,its siver,its a wash of candlelight. After a while I was looking for things to highlight....the corners of my eyes...the center of my lips,my shoulder,my earlobes,my friends........try it on your eyes,cheaps and mixed in your lipstick.
You need to give this out as a Christmas stocking stuffer.Its like a little compact of sheer gorgeous.
One of the best highlighters ever! It's sheer and adds a great pale glow to your face, and I love wearing it on my cheekbones above my blush to give it an extra pop!
The texture is smooth and finely milled...just like all other Nars Blushes.
wow. not sparkly like BB shimmer block. love it on the top of the cheekbones, under brow, and on collar bones. suits all skin tones, this is truly a versitale (sp) product for all. It is intimidating in the case, but try it!
I can't quite make up my mind about this product. I'm on the fence with highlighters in general. While I love the idea of them, I find that on my combination skin shimmer tends to accentuate my flaws more than anything else. I tend to get the best effects by using a bronzer, a blush and a lightly shimmer shadow. I used this over my blush and bronzer on my cheekbones and then on my eyelids and lightly below my eye. It was ok; I have very dry skin around my eyes so wasn't crazy about how it looked after an hour or so. I think I'll return this...not for me. I will say that I find most highlighting products way too shimmery (BB shimmerbricks, Cargo Beach blushes) and this was the most subtle...just still not quite the best for me. Try before you buy!
HG highlighter for me. I've been on a long tedious search for an everyday cheekbone/browbone highlighting powder with NO glitter. It has to be a powder because I'm oily, and it has to have no glitter because I work in a professional environment. This is the ideal highlighter for me because it is a beautiful gold shimmer which looks like a soft metallic sheen on my skin, the lit-from-within glow which is non-greasy and most importantly non-glittery. I always finish off my look with this on top of blush. Lasting power is superb and price is good (Cdn$27) considering the amount. I will repurchase this because it gives me the exact effect I want and i haven't been able to find any other highlighting powder that is shimmery sans glitter (strike-outs with MAC msf, MAC iridescent powders, BE all over colors, BB shimmer bricks, Stila all over shimmer powder, MUFE shine on & star powders, Guerlain meteorites, Smashbox soft lights...just to give you an idea of how much $ i've wasted).
This product looks very plain in the pan (white). However, it looks amazing on. It gives a very soft glow (slightly gold) when it hits the light. This might be my new HG highlighter.
i'm having an amazing nars week, i've picked up mediteranee(sp?) eye shadow, nars loose powder, and albatross and all have been phenomenal!
albatross is such a gem though, worn as an eyeshadow it really makes my brown eyes pop and glow. and as a highlighter/blush it makes your skin seem angelic and healthy
i would def. buy again! its so versatile and useful!
ohhh how i love nars!
LOVE THIS! I've been using Stila #9 highlighter but this is more subtle - gentle. I apply this with a skunk brush over my cream blush - it adds a spit shine sheen over my cheeks and add dimension. I never would have thought it would work unless I tried it. It looks bright white in the pan - but really is more of a gold/pearl sheen.
A sheer golden shimmer that gives my face a wonderful glow...I use it as a highlighter on cheekbones (over blush), temples, and nosebridge. Also sweep it on collarbones and cleavage for night...so beautiful! I'm NC35, but it should work well on most skin tones, it's that neutral.
i love this. i have it with the orgasm duo. it's my go-to product. i use it as cheeks, highlighter and eyeshadow. all you need is eyeliner, mascara and gloss and you are good to go!
i have olive skin and the golden shimmer in the albatross is very subtle and complimentary to it. the orgasm is also very subtle on my skin, but isn't that what makeup should be? subtle. just bring out your natural beauty :)
i will def. repurchase when this runs out.
Edited to add: I Just got Mac Vanilla Pigment and the color is identical to Albatross. So, you can do either for the same effect.
