I'd never tryed any NARS products before, until I purchased the Casino bronzer and Albatross highlight in the January sales. And I have to say that after using them for a few weeks, I love both of them and can feel a NARS obsession forming!
I love my Benefit Hoola bronzer, but I'd heard so many good things about the NARS bronzers and I really wanted to give one a try. I wasn't sure whether to go for Laguna or Casino but eventually decided on the darker shade, Casino, as when I'm tanned, sometimes I find myself having to pack on Hoola. I haven't been disappointed! Casino's a perfect darker bronzer, nicely pigmented and gives a gorgeous glow to the skin. It's the perfect shade for when I'm tanned and I only need to use a little to add some colour to my face. I've actually found myself reaching for it alot more than Hoola and I think it may be becoming my new favourite bronzer! I also love that it's got a large mirror inside the compact, I usually keep it in my makeup bag so I find this really useful!
Albatross highlight powder
This is another product I'd heard countless, good reviews on. Albatross looks bright white in the pan but once applied it gives the skin a perfect golden sheen. It's a finely milled powder and not at all glittery. It looks gorgeous when applied on top of the cheekbones and gives the cheeks a pretty, glowy look. It's also perfect for highlighting down the centre of your nose or anywhere else you want to highlight as it looks lovely and subtle. Most of my highlighters are either creams or liquids, like Benefit's high beam and moon beam, which I do love, but I find powders easier to work with if I'm in a rush, so Albatross is perfect. I love the effect of this on the skin and I can definitley see myself repurchasing this in the future.
