The new limited edition NARS Albatross Lip Gloss ($24 and part of the NARS Holiday 2011 collection) really put me in a fowl mood today…
(Sorry! I couldn’t resist.)
Based on how it looked in the tube, I was sure I’d only feel “Eh” about it, but once I got it on my lips, I totally changed my tune.

If someone were able to liquify pearls the color of cream and added a heaping helping of golden micro glitter, they’d get Albatross. From some angles, a creamy pearl; from others, a warm gold. It’s dynamic, and that’s one of the things I like about it.
I saw myself in the mirror with it on and thought, “Dang! Are those Kim Kardashian’s lips?” Glossy, shiny, with just a hint of color. I think Albatross would look fan-freakin’-tastic with dark smokey eyes.
Oh, and you know how NARS glosses are sometimes known for that whole plasticky thing? This shade is neither scented nor flavored. A big plus for gals who prefer their glosses without any sensory bells or whistles.
AVAILABILITY: Coming soon to NARS counters and available now online
