F*** that little Mouse,

Cuz I’m an Albatraoz!…


[ Pardon the nasty language lovelies, but this tune starts playing inside my head every time I see the NARS Highlighting Blush Powder in Albatross. Plus it’s such an amazing working out beat, don’t you think?! ]

Now, check out this highlighters reviewing spree I’ve been lately!? I did Tom Ford, BECCA Cosmetics, Kevyn Aucoin and now this amazing NARS number here… Isn’t it gorgeous!?


NARS Albatross is marketed as a highlighting blusher, but if you think “traditional “blushers ( like most of NARS blushers that in a single swipe pack on a lot of colour on your cheeks, for instance! ), please hold it right there!

Albatross is rather a highlighter than a blusher! More of an extra-step in your makeup routine, meant to add +glow to your face if you’re into that kind of look. Therefore I don’t think it should be considered or used by itself as a blusher only!


No room for disappointments with this one though!… Because it is a highlighting powder with such a gorgeous golden sheen – the perfect balance between an almost translucent white base and the most glorious gold shimmers! When applied, the powder reveals cool-toned white undertones sprinkled with the most finely milled shimmers, that create such a beautiful radiance to the skin, instantly brightening your whole makeup!


The powder is so finely milled that it feels so soft and feathery on the skin! It’s a real pleasure to apply and it blends flawlessly into your makeup! It doesn’t sit on top of your cream products and it doesn’t make them look heavy!

In fact I’ve used it several times on top of my favourite cream highlighter the Kevyn Aucoin Candelight to set it and, I kid you not, this combination lasted me all day! Plus the final result was mind blowing – it created nothing but a lightweight, “luminous glow”**.


[ Don’t be put off by the glitters you see in the swatches above as Albatross transfers as such a natural colour on the cheeks! ]

Albatross is part of the Highlighting Blush series, NARS designed to help illuminate your complexion rather than to add colour.

Beside Albatross you also have:

Miss Liberty – a “soft shimmering peach”**

New Order – a “sheer highlighter with golden shimmer”** and purple undertones

Satellite of Love – a “sparkling gold sand”**

Great product and so many options, right? What do you think about it lovelies?

See you soon, beautiful!

xx, Annie
