in review: NARS one shocking moment cheek palette

NARS comes out with holiday palettes each year but this Steven Klein one shocking moment cheek palette is life. The palette includes a contouring duo, a bronzer and four blushes in the colours robotic, blasphemy, luster and dolce vita. Whether you want to explore the world of NARS further or you need a travel friendly palette to venture the world with, this palette has everything you're looking for.

The Breakdown: 
2 x 0.12 oz Contour Blush in Paloma I and Paloma II
0.29 oz Laguna Bronzer
0.12 oz Robotic Blush
0.12 oz Blasphemy Blush
0.12 oz Luster Blush
0.12 Dolce Vita Blush

The Details: 
Contouring Duo in Paloma: includes the soft and silky pinky-beige highlight and a deep rose contour. Great for medium skin tones and glides on effortlessly. It seems dusty in pan but doesn't look powdery when applied.
Laguna Bronzer: a colour many narsissists (nars fans) most likely own or have at least tried. A perfect natural finish that works for light to medium skin tones. This does have shimmer for a radiant finish, so if you prefer matte, this isn't for you. I adore this bronzer and reach for it on the daily.
Robotic: the lightest shade in this palette. More on the light side of pink but still in the medium toned range. A silky soft application that needs a firm hand as it applies lighter than the others. Exclusive to this cheek palette.
Blasphemy: a shimmery rosy medium pink that blends beautifully and gives a natural finish. Exclusive to this cheek palette.
Luster: a gold shimmery toned blush that gives off a radiant finish. More on the orange-brown side. Gives off a sheer finish.
Dolce Vita: an easily blended dusty rose/plum shade with a hint of gold shimmer. Perfect for a holiday season look. A beautiful and natural silky finish.

NARS is a makeup brand that generally can do no wrong. There are many products within their line that I can't live without - particularly their blushes. From their sleek packaging to the finely milled and super blend-able powders, I feel that the quality of their products is what keeps you coming back for more and this palette is no exception.

Rating: 9.5/10
If you are a super fan of Nars, you most likely own the majority of products in this palette which is why I didn't give this a perfect score.
