This was the second beauty product purchase I made in Canada (the first being my Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette) and I was really keen on picking it up because I hadn’t tried NARS before so I wanted to pick up something where I would be able to try multiple products at the same time! The palette contains one highlighter, three blushes and one bronzer. This makes it really great for travel because there’s no need to carry extra blushes with you, there is enough variety in the palette by itself. =)

I am a huge fan of highlighters but unfortunately, this one doesn’t completely cut it for me! It is straight up glitter on the skin and although I personally don’t mind glitter, it’s something I do not reach for everyday. I do find use for it in my eye makeup though because it does add beautiful sparkle! However, on the cheeks, I know that this highlighter is one that a lot of people will not like at all.

This is one of the more popular selling blushes by NARS, alongside Orgasm. It is a beautiful peachy coral shade that has a satin finish to it. I personally think that it is a universally flattering shade that looks stunning on everyone of all skin tones. It has fantastic pigmentation and it just gives a really healthy flush to the face! I love it. =)

Sex Fantasy is a cool-toned baby pink blush that has some slight lavender hues to it. I normally do not go for cooler toned pinks because I feel that they don’t suit me but I surprisingly really like this blush! It is very easy to wear and it does show up on the skin despite how pale it looks. The swatch looks a bit powdery but on the cheeks, it doesn’t come off like that at all!

Final Cut is another coral shade but it definitely leans more on the orange-coral side in comparison to Deep Throat, which is pinker. It has a matte finish and I think that it is gorgeous for the warmer months. It is also the most pigmented out of all the blushes in this palette so it’s important to be careful when you apply it to make sure you don’t put on too much!

The cult favourite bronzer of many people! Laguna is a medium brown with a beautiful sheen to it. The amazing thing about this palette is that there is a lot more product than there is in a standard bronzer powder so if you purchased the palette in its retail price, you would have definitely gotten your money’s worth! There is 10g of product in comparison to 8g! I find Laguna really easy to work with and it doesn’t look muddy at all on the skin.
Overall, I know that this palette is limited edition so if you were looking into picking it up, purchase it now because I think it is fantastic value considering how many different products you are getting in one palette. I now know why NARS is really popular because the quality of their cheek products are incredible! The only let down is the highlighter but other than that, I am extremely pleased with this palette! It is convenient because it contains a variety of different shades so you can mix and match according to what you are wearing on the rest of your face!
