I was lucky enough to snag this palette from my local Sephora store in Canada. FYI, The colours are gorgeous! I was running low on one of my favourite blushes (Josie Maran’s blush in “Blossom”) and heard about this NARS palette so I decided to give it a try.
What is this palette all about?
As quoted from the Sephora website:
“Based on the exquisite tradition of Kabuki theatre, a classical Japanese dance drama, this palette features six high-pigment cheek powders that let you play up your features like a true performance artist. “
This palette has a $107 value and you get six blushes consisting of 0.12 oz each. One regular NARS blush is 0.16 oz. I hadn’t previously purchased a NARS blush before (though I’ve heard so many great reviews on them) and thought this palette would be a good chance to try more than just one. You receive a highlighting blush, a bronzer & 4 blushes ranging from a berry mauve to shocking pink. The colours are all very shimmery; if you don’t like shimmer, you may not enjoy this palette. Keep in mind, this palette is based on make-up for “theatre performance,” thus the shimmery, bright shades.
Here are my swatches:
Top: Hungry Heart (ivory with gold flecks), Super Orgasm (darker peachy pink with gold glitter), Desire (cotton candy pink)
Bottom: Casino (dark brown with gold shimmer), Orgasm (peachy pink with gold shimmer), Sin (berry mauve with gold shimmer)
This palette is LIMITED EDITION! I suggest you visit your local Sephora & see if they have this in stock :)
