This is something I rediscovered in the bottom of my makeup box. Yes, I have a box that I keep in my bathroom with each category of makeup (lipstick, lipstick, eyeshadows, eyeliner, etc.) divided into ziplock bags....classy, I know.
Years ago, I was convinced to purchase this highlighter from the Nars counter after picking up some of my other essentials....Orgasm Blush and Heatwave Lipstick.
I am not a person that loves sparkly on the face. Dewey perhaps, but not JLo sparkle. Sparkle makes me feel VERY 2001 and even though 2001 was a very fun (AND DRUNK!) year for me, I don't like when my face looks like a disco ball. But there is something about Albatross that is different.
Nars describes Albatross as a "sheer light golden sheen" and I will agree here. It is packaged just like their blushes, but I would consider it a highlighter. If not used correctly, I could see how this could end up looking really white on the skin (I have a medium complexion), but a dab here and there adds a heavenly glow.
I use it as so:
1. After I complete my eye makeup, a rub a tiny bit under each eyebrow on my brow bone.
2. After I power my nose, I rub a tiny bit across the center bridge of my nose.
3. After I apply by blush, I rub a tiny bit across by cheeks, from my upper cheekbone to my temples.
I find that if I apply with my fingers and not a blush brush, it gives me the glow I desire and just softens and lightens my face.
Since I have been wearing it, I have received many compliments about my skin looking lovely and looking rested (which I am SO NOT), so I giving Albatross the credit.
When I poked around on the Nars website, I couldn't find it, but it is at Sephora if you are interested.
Happy Saturday and get glowing!
I am off to the gym here myself.
