When Sephora had their VIB 20% sale, I knew I had to pick this up. I have only tried one NARS blush years ago and I honestly don't even remember what shade it was. A couple of years ago NARS did a similar palette but I didn't get it. After hearing all of the rave reviews after it came out, I desperately wanted it. By the time my interest in that palette came about, the palette was already out of stock everywhere. This year I was glad to see NARS do another blush palette. I had to seriously think about it though. The $65 price tag was so intimidating. After lot's of thinking and researching about this palette, I decided to get it. I returned another product from Sephora and used the store credit to get this. I am so glad I did! I'm not usually a blush person but after trying Benefit's Coralista and Benefit's Rockateur, I knew I wanted to expand my blush collection. I am not obsessed.

This palette comes with three permanent shades and three new shades. I've always wanted to try Laguna, Orgasm and Deep Throat so I figure this would be the perfect palette!

All of the shades are 0.4g. That may not seem like a lot but it's a great palette to have all of these shades in. It's not like I'm actually going to use this all up any time soon (i hope).

My favorite shades are Laguna for my contour and Deep throat for blush. All of the shades go well with my MAC NC30 skin tone and the blushes last long on my face. Recently I have been using my NARS Sheer Glow Foundation and the blushes work perfectly on it. All of the shades are beautiful and I highly recommend getting this at a Sephora store. It is now sold out online! I can't believe how quickly it sold out.

Hope this was helpful!
