Tried it Tuesday – Nars’ Danmari All About Cheeks Palette

22 Nov

This week we wanted to fill you in on Nars’ Danmari All About Cheeks Palette. Both of us Glimmer Shimmer girls could not resist this palette.

Nars’ Danmari All About Cheeks Palette ($65, sephora.com): This palette includes the highlighter Hungry Heart (gold ivory) and the bronzer Casino (dark brown with golden shimmer), along with four blushes: Orgasm (NARS’ most popular color, which is a peachy pink with gold shimmer), Super Orgasm (peachy pink with gold glitter chunks), Desire (BRIGHT matte pink) and Sin (berry with gold shimmer).

Red: 

I was drawn to this palette because it has a wide variety of colors as well as a bronzer and highlighter. There were a couple of cheek shades that I use all of the time as well as a couple that I have been wanting to try. My reasoning behind purchasing this palette even though I had two of the blushes already is that it would travel perfectly. Also, purchasing two full size blushes to try out would be almost as much as this palette.

I ended up taking this palette with me for a recent ballet performance that I was in. It packed up nicely. It worked perfectly because I used several of the shades on different people and there was something for everyone. I think my favorite shade in this palette is Sin. It’s a berry with a gold shimmer and it looks gorgeous on many skin tones. I was worried that the bronzer in this palette may be too dark for my ghostly skin. I was very surprised to find out it can be applied with a light hand. It blends extremely well too.

I give this palette 5/5 sparkles. 

Pants:

When I spotted this on Sephora’s website, I knew I had to have it. I waited until the Friends & Family Sale, but waited too long and it went out of stock. I stalked this product like a crazy person, and luckily Red hadn’t placed her F&F order yet, and it came back in stock in time for her to order them for us with 20%. Not too shabby.

There’s a reason this keeps selling out – it’s amazeballs. NARS’ blushes are really good quality – velvety and pigmented, and they have great staying power.

Yes, I do already own Orgasm and Super Orgasm, but I’ve been wanting a blush palette, and this is a good deal. A normal NARS blush is 0.16 oz, and each of these in the palette is 0.12 oz. At $27 each, I would have to spend $108 to try the other four colors I didn’t have in this palette.

I love all the colors in this. I do have to use a very light hand with Desire, and I love to pair Hungry Heart on top. Like Red, Sin is probably my favorite – I’ve been wearing it a lot with gold and berry eyeshadows.

I give this palette 5/5 sparkles.

    Love that you guys try these things! It’s so much better to have “real” reviews from people to know whether to spend the $ on stuff like this. Might be on my christmas list now!
