THAT Blush Palette..

The most beautiful palette I have ever seen had to be mine when I saw it on pre-order at Space NK...

This is a limited edition blush palette which features the infamous Orgasm and Deep Throat blushes and a favourite of mine, Laguna bronzer. It also houses two other beautiful blushes and one icy highlighter all inspired by the photographer, Guy Bourdin.

Some people were a bit annoyed that they included Orgasm and Deep Throat are in this palette, but I for one was delighted as I had ummed and ahhed at trying the infamous blushers for a while and they haven't disappointed. 

From L-R: Devotee (highlight), Laguna (bronzer), Mistinguette (bright, matte pink blush), Deep Throat (sheer peach, shimmer blush), Orgasm (pink peach, golden shimmer blush), Goulou (medium pink, shimmer blush)

It is rare to find a palette where you would use everything but I can quite confidently say I love every colour and have been using it religiously since I recieved it. All the products are extremely pigmented, as usual from NARS, so it is definitely worth the money in my opinion, in fact I thought it was a bit of a bargain!

I love love love highlighters and can't get enough of them. This is described as an 'alabaster glow' i.e. a white, icy colour. Be wary when using this as a little does go a long way, so use a light hand and a highlighter brush to give your cheeks a lovely sheen.

A deep brown with a slight golden shimmer, which hardly transfers to the cheek so don't let that put you off. I love this bronzer and I also own the full size but will definitely be using this once I am out. A favourite among us bloggers and rightly so, the perfect mix of orangey browness technical terms for warming up the face or creating a light contour.

I would never chose a shade like this normally but if you dip your brush in and tap off the excess this really brightens up the face and goes great with the highlighter as it a matte blush, unlike the others.

Deep Throat
This is my kind of blush, although I don't own a lot of shimmery blushes, I don't think it is very in your face, so it actually looks very pretty on the cheeks. I love peachy blushes and find they really warm up my face and suit my skin tone well so I am always adding to my peachy collection. Any recommendations welcome!

A slightly darker and more pink version of Deep Throat and I love it just as much. These two have been my most warn shades out of the palette and are great if you can't be bothered with a highlighter as they both have a slight golden sheen to them.

Probably one I will wear the least, but pretty none the less. I think this would suit pale skin tones to give an 'English rose' look. Not one I would reach for daily but definitely something I will use in the winter if I want a pink, naturally flushed look.

Did you get your hands on this? What do you think?


  1. I need this palette in my life SO much! Sometimes I really dislike not living in the UK.
