I picked up this NARS cheek palette during Nordstrom's Anniversary sale. It was $65, but it has a value of $124. It contains four blushes, one bronzer, and one highlighter. I think we all essentially want a face palette that has it all. It's no longer available, but the blushes, highlighter, and bronzer are sold on their own.
I'll start from top left and move my way to the bronzer.
- Orgasm Blush - Peachy Pink with shimmer
- Deep Throat Blush - Peach with shimmer
- Albatross Highlighter - Light Golden Sheen
- Luster Blush - Sheer Golden Apricot
- Desire Blush - Cotton Candy Pink
- Laguna Bronzer - Brown with golden shimmer
I love the selection of blushes they put in this palette. The blushes are amazing quality. I didn't have any trouble with them. You get exceptional color payoff from just one swipe across the cheeks. "Desire" did look a bit bright on my cheeks, but I was able to tone it down. "Orgasm" is by far my favorite blush out of the bunch. The shimmer wasn't too overpowering. I feel like "Luster" goes perfectly with whatever makeup look I have in mind. The blushes wear for about 7-8 hours. Each blush contains 3.5 grams.
"Albatross" gives my skin a nice golden sheen. Seriously, you need only one swipe of this! You'll be looking radiant! The blushes and bronzer seem to last longer than the highlighter. Albatross lasted about six and a half hours. It does look white in the pan, but does appear golden when applied. Albatross is also 3.5 grams.
