|L/R: NARS Albatross, Make Up Store Stardust|
I've always wanted to try Albatross as it seems the perfect highlighter shade, i.e. colourless! Most highlighters I've seen either have a pink or a peach tinge, which is fine if I'm layering over a matching blush but Albatross is more versatile and can be worn over any blush without compromising the underlying colour. It's a powder product, and does appear slightly chalky in the pan but it looks great on the cheeks. It has a slight golden gleam that looks pretty natural on as you'll be able to see at the end of this post

I was sent this product in a Press pack. I'm not generally into cream products as I worry they'll glide off my skin, but not this one. The texture of this is very thick, in fact it's a bit hard to spread on the cheeks because it's so thick, but once applied (I use a stippling brush), this won't budge for hours. Colour - wise it looks like a warm white/gold shade, however when swatched it's almost exactly the same as Albatross. I plan on using this one a lot more during summer, as I prefer to use cream products during warmer months.
And here's how NARS Albatross looks worn over a matte blush (Illamasqua Tremble). It's very subtle, just the way I like it.
What do you think of these highlighters? Do you have a favourite?
