Love, love, love this highlighter! Seeing how white the powder was, I wasn't sure if it was going to be too bright for me when I tried it. However, when I put it on, it has the prettiest golden sheen that should suit most skin tones beautifully. It lasts really well and is very pigmented so, for a day-to-day basis, I only need to swipe it on once and then can build it up for an evening look. Very pretty and shimmery and looks great on the inner corners of the eyes as well. Very impressed!

This highlighting blush was love at first swipe. I love the gentle flush of peach with a subtle golden champagne sheen it gives to my skin. I think this would look more pink on lighter skintones but I'm a Mac NC25 and the champagne gold sheen stands out. I really love how this gives a nice glow with a gentle hint of color and almost like a nude blush but with more sheen. The thing that I like the most about this is that it doesn't emphasize my pores, very important with all my highlighters as I don't want to emphasize my pores.
I like to use this a blush topper to add a bit more sheen when I'm doing a simpler look on my eyes and want my cheeks to be more of the focus of my makeup. Or sometimes I use it as a blush and highlighter when I'm going for a more natural cheek with a stronger eye or lip. I would recommend this to anyone who likes a more natural glowy look and likes a two in one with blush and highlighter.
Tips: Because this has a slight shimmer to it, I wouldn't recommend packing it on your cheeks in big circles but using it alongside a contour in for a blush and highlight in lighter layers or apply less if you are using it as a blush topper. If you have darker skin you can still use this, it's just going to bring out more of the champagne in it.
I've admired Albatross for a long time and after reading about it in The Beauty Context blog (owned by one of our BR lovelies), I ordered it online from Mecca Cosmetica. I bought it for - gulp - $54.00 and YES that's crazy expensive!
After a couple of months of use I can say that it's a great addition to the powders I use as blush toppers. It's a beautiful highlight but on my skintone I prefer it as a blush topper to lift any dull blush that I'm trying to pan or a shade that I'm not too keen on.
It comes in the signature NARS matte black packaging and takes up little room in your bag. The colour in the pan is more egg shell ivory with subtle golden shimmers but from afar it looks white. I expected it to appear frosty on my skin (note: I love a good frost!) but in fact I get a more golden sheen.
It doesn't go on patchy and is easy to blend. This product last the entire day whether I wear it as a highlight or blush topper. I really love the effect it gives on a night out - a gorgeous glow of gold champagne. This shade really stands out on my skin tone and if you love a good golden highlight with fine shimmers then I would recommend this; however I'm sure there is something more affordable out there.
I finally got my hands on this for Christmas and i am in love already! You only need the tiniest bit to highlight your cheeks. Absolutely love it!
Tips: Use an angled brush and tap it to remove any excess powder before applying
I have this as part of a duo with Nars Orgasm. These two shade compliment each other beautifully. This is a golden ivory highlighter with finely milled glitter. This would be no good for people who don't like a glittery highlighter! I find that the glitter is subtle enough to get away with, but because I use this in conjunction with Orgasm, I tend to use a light hand so my face doesn't look like a glitter bomb. This is a nice highlighter for my fair skin. Not a HG product for me but still one I am glad I have in my collection.
