Albatross is a very light, white gold with a more matte, powdery base that is white-based with lighter, warmer yellow shimmer. Albatross is a nice highlighter for someone who wants a very pale, ethereal base. On my skin tone, I find I have to be careful with application or else the white base is too prominent, but it mixes and layers well with a lot of blushes (which is how I tend to wear my highlighters). The texture of the version in the palette was more powdery and more prone to sheeringout--you can see how it looks chalkier overall than past iterations of the shade and less shimmery. It wore well for seven hours on me. Kevyn Aucoin Ibiza (Left) (PiP, $44.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). bareMinerals The Many Splendors #1 (LE, ) is darker (95% similar). ColourPop Stole the Show (P, $8.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Chanel Camelia de Plumes (LE, $76.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Divergent Gleaming Pearl (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). Cle de Peau Pastel (11) (P, $55.00) is cooler (90% similar). Cle de Peau Gold (12) (P, $55.00) is darker (90% similar). Makeup Revolution Golden Lights (P, $6.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Close-Up #1 (LE, ) is cooler (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Moodlight (Daylight) (LE, ) is warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Luminous (P, $30.00) is darker (90% similar). Chanel Camelia de Plumes (LE, $76.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Too Faced Inner Light (LE, ) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Giorgio Armani Belladonna (LE, $88.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Zoeva Glowing Still (PiP, ) is more shimmery (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Soleil Neige (Highlighter) (LE, ) is more shimmery, warmer, glossier (85% similar). Laura Mercier Gold Radiance (LE, $45.00) is more shimmery, warmer (85% similar).

Love love love. My first experience of using this - I was in awe. I'd heard lots of people rave about this and now I see why. High quality product, delivers a beautiful glow without having to use much product. Love the colour and the dewy shine it gives my skin :)

I liked this a lot, overall. It works really well blended with other blushes that have a golden shimmer (like orgasm). I've had this for two years, used it often, and barely made a dent in it. It's still my favorite nighttime highlighter even though the gold glow is too obvious and unnatural in sunlight.

This is one of my 'in your face' highlighters. It gives a beautiful golden sheen to the skin. It's a bit bolder than I prefer for day time, but great for night time.
