NARS Albatross Blush vs. MAC Solar White Eyeshadow


Hey Guys!
I got my first pay Friday so I've been out this weekend shopping! I didn't go too crazy or anything, but here are a couple items I picked up yesterday when I hung out with the girls. I picked up a Victoria's Secret PINK zip up hoodie. It's super soft and the colour really complements my skin and hair. FINALLY...I got my hands on NARS Albatross. I was really excited. I wanted to buy Lovejoy and Amour, but figured spending $100 on blush at once is a bit excessive and I'm trying to watch my spending.



As you know, MAC Solar White eyeshadow is my FAVOURITE eyeshadow EVER! I've been drooling over Albatross and now I know why. It's a great dupe for Solar White! Albatross is like Solar White, but for your face! Now I won't have to cry when my Solar White is all gone because now I have a good replacement. Albatross is a little more gold/darker than Solar White, but not by much. If you look up close you can tell, but from a distance they are virtually identical. What are some of your favourite NARS products? I'm really loving the brand at the moment.

  3. @ L0u X: NARS is, I think, more expensive than MAC. NARS foundations can go up to $45 a 1 oz. bottle

    I've been wanting Albatross, too. I actually want to get this one set that they have on their website with a lip gloss and a blush + Albatross duo. I have the NARS blush in Exhibit A. It's the orange-red one. NARS is pretty damn awesome.

    Have you seen their condoms? It tripped me out. One of their sets had these NARS brand condoms. You can see at their website.

  4. I love your blog Cheryl!!
    Yours is my favourite of all the ones I follow and I always love to read when you have a new post up! :)
    An AMAZING product by NARS is their cream blush in Penny Lane.
    It may look light and sheer but when you apply it on your cheeks with a brush (i use the MAC 168) it gives the most gorgeous glowy skin and cheeks - this has become my favourite most go-to product out of all my blushes! All my MAC and other NARS blushes are now being sadly neglected.. lol! You might think it doesn't look like much in the pan but TRUST ME, its amazing! I would recommend it to anyone with light to medium skin :):) Cactus Flower is also really nice for darker skin tones and for a brighter pop of colour! Love love NARS cream blushes <3!

  16. NARS is AMAZING. I can't wait to get my hands on more of their products!

    I live in Victoria's Secret sweats! All of mine look about the same; they're just in different colors. They are SO comfortable and well made! I <3 them!

  17. I've been dying to get my hands on NARS Albatross. It looks like it would be the most beautiful highlight. I was never able to get Solar White Eyeshadow, so maybe this will make up for it. Thanks for the swatches!!!!
