I am a blush junkie. So, when I saw the Nars Unfiltered Cheek Palette I I KNEW I had to have it. These two blush palettes were released on Cyber Monday on the Sephora website. However, these palettes are BACK IN STOCK on the Nars and Sephora websites.
There are two versions of this palette: The Nars Unfiltered Cheek Palette I (pictured above) and the Nars Unfiltered Cheek Palette II. Each palette retails for $59 and contains six 0.12 oz blushes. For reference, a full-sized Nars blush is 0.16 oz. so each blush in this palette is slightly smaller than the full-size Nars blushes. The Sephora website claims this palette is $150 value but when I recalculate on my own, the actual value is $135. Regardless, this is an incredible deal.
First, let us all rejoice at the fact that neither palette contains Nars Orgasm or Nars Laguna!! Hallelujah! Don’t get me wrong, I own and love both of these products but that is precisely the issue: most people already own these products! So, I am thrilled that they are not included in these palettes. In fact, each palette contains 5 new limited edition shades and one repromoted shade (Exhibit A in the Nars Unfiltered Cheek Palette I and Hot Sand in Nars Unfiltered Cheek Palette II).
If you are considering the Nars Unfiltered Cheek Palette I, do not be scared by the swatches! I think that these colors could work for a large variety of skin tones if you use a light hand. I personally chose this palette because the shades are unlike anything I already own. The formula, consistency and pigmentation of these blushes feel identical to the full-size Nars blushes in my collection.
Overall, I think that the Nars Unfiltered Cheek Palette is a must have. I might even pick up the Unfiltered II when it comes back in stock. What do you think of these palettes? Will you be picking up the Nars Unfiltered Cheek Palette?
