Today I decided to review something I received in my gigantic E.l.f. haul from the other day. I haven't posted from that haul yet, but I've been tackling the items bit by bit. I've had the NARS Albatross for sometime, and honestly I rarely use it. It's not that I don't like it, I just don't find myself reaching for it.
E.l.f.'s packaging is very similar to that of NARS. The major difference in packaging is the weight, the texture of the casing and the clear window that elf uses.
Once you open up the case, the highlighter itself also appears very similar. At first sight, the ELF highlighter appears a little more yellow.
Note that these were swatched heavily!
Again, you can see that the elf highlighter appears a little more yellow.
The texture of the NARS Albatross was obviously smooth and non grainy. The elf highlighter was smooth yet, nothing compared to the Albatross. I did not have to use much of the Albatross to get that beautiful sheen that you see here.
Price: $3 vs. $26
So? Whatcha think? There are some obvious differences between the two but if you're not willing to shell out the money for the NARS Albatross, why not pick up Elf's Gotta Glow?
