NARS Blush/Highlighter Duo in Sin and Albatross | Review

I was really excited to visit the NARS counter at IMATS in London last month, but once I found it I was a little disappointed as they weren't selling their whole range. I was looking for the classics - Laguna, Orgasm and Albatross. I managed to get one of them, but as a duo paired with a blush, Sin. I paid £12.50 so I have to say, the price is nothing to complain about, bargain. Now that I've been using it for a while I got used to it being a duo and I'm even slightly falling for Sin (I knew I would love Albatross even before I got it). Both, blush and highlighter are nicely pigmented and easy to blend, so just a tiny bit of product works wonders. I was really surprised with Sin, I didn't think it would look in any way nice on my face, but I was pleasantly surprised once I decided to try it on. It's so flattering on my pale skin. The products last pretty much all day, didn't have to reapply either even once. I'm happy I got the duo now, I probably wouldn't even consider the blush if it didn't come as a duo. That's a bit of a kick to go out of my comfort zone more often. I am not entirely sure on the price of the duo as at IMATS they had special deals on, but should be around £30.
Have you tried Albatross or Sin from NARS? What's your go-to highlighter?



  1. This duo looks amazing, I thought the blush is going to be very dark but on your hand it looks very good. xx
