If so, congratulations! You probably already know, then, that something this color:
…is not a blush. NARS's iconic highlighter is presumably only classified as a blush on beauty-selling websites because someone went "FUCK IT, SAME SIZE AND PACKAGING" and kept their work as simple as possible.
Like all NARS blushes, Albatross is housed in a slick black packaging that attracts fingerprints like my carpet attracts large clumps of hair. I swear, if you are worried someone is going to break into a personal safe, you should just superglue NARS products all over it. It will attract fingerprints before the person even touches it. I can only assume it sucks the fingerprints from the air when the person gets within ten feet. (Seriously, guys, I have no idea why I was not a writer on Burn Notice.)
Albatross has a color that is almost a contradiction. The ivory base is cool-toned ivory, but it's laced in a seriously intense golden sheen. It's perfect if you want to look like a statue that was poked in the cheekbones by Kind Midas. No glitter, just shimmery, shifting colors.
The texture is soft and smooth, making it easy to blend. A very soft touch will give a pretty, luminous look, whereas heavy layering is perfect for a day where you wake up and say, "Fuck it! Today I am going to look ridiculous!"
