NARS Albatross is a moderately warm-toned, very light gold with a metallic finish. It is a permanent highlighter that retails for $38.00 and contains 0.49 oz.
NARS Albatross Highlighting Powder (2018) ($38.00 for 0.49 oz.) is a bright, light white gold with warm, yellow undertones and a metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque, buildable color payoff that applied evenly and smoothly to bare skin. The powder blended out effortlessly, and the more I buffed and worked the powder onto my skin, the shinier and more metallic it looked, though it did not emphasize my skin's natural texture. It wore well for almost nine hours on me before fading slightly.
