NARS Cheek Palettes

[ Edited ]

Has anyone tried the Limited Edition Cheek Palettes from NARS in SoulShine and Realm Of The Senses? I'm thinking about ordering one (or both) but haven't seen them in person. There aren't many reviews so if you have one of them please share your thoughts. Thanks

Temptalia reviewed these on her website if you'd like to check it out.

Thanks @malday. The Temptalia swatches are great. The pictures of the products are clearer than the ones here at Sephora too.

Agreed, for some reason Sephora's photos of these look more dark and bronzy-er than all of the other photos I've seen.

No problem! Sephora's photos would honestly not make me want to buy these!

is there a lot of shimmer? and are they meant to be blushes or highlights

BlushHoarder

I believe it is primarily meant to be a blush, but the upper right color on both palettes seems to possible be able to serve as a highlighter

Oooh, I'm very excited to try these!  I they remind me a little bit of Laura Mercier Shimmer Bloc, which I love (& wear every day).  I would say swirl all the colors together, you can't go wrong.  :smileyhappy: -Laura

Mine just arrived today. I got Soulshine. I think it is heavenly so far

There are three different segmented areas of color. So you can do one, two, or all three colors.

I think it is also very forgiving and would work with most skin complexions.

Can you describe the overall color when you swirl the shades together? Is there much shimmer?

BlushHoarder

Re: NARS Cheek Palettes

No --- not much shimmer. There is a faint shimmer to it.... but it is so subtle, you would need to look for it to see it. It serves more of a purpose of giving a natural glow I think. The writing is just an overspray... that overspray may be the cause of the shimmer.

The color is natural. It makes me think of a slightly darker orgasm. I like it better than orgasm.

@crazeeRN and @BlushHoarder - Thanks for the pictures and the descriptions.  I went to my local sephora to check this out yesterday and they didn't have it in store yet.  The colors look amazing in your pictures!

Sorry, they must have been removed for whatever reason.

Was there an outside link in @blushhoarder's post? If so, it might have been removed.

That could be. Looks like she posted yesterday and I didn't get back here until this morning. I must have missed it. BOO. I would have liked to see those pics.
