The other day I received an email from Sephora informing me that NARS Cosmetics announced that they will be launching two new Unfiltered Cheek Palettes for Spring 2017 which feature six face color powders each. I was running out of blush and thought this was a genius thing to buy at $59 considering there are six colors and lately I have been on a blush fix so I definitely wanted a variety of shades.
I was even more excited when I received it…I mean how cute is this packaging?! There is even a tiny booklet which gives you information on how to highlight and sculpt your face and cheeks!
The palettes come in two varieties–one is a bolder, warmer set of shades, while the other is a slightly cooler, pinker set of shades. They both contain just the perfect shades for highlight, sculpting and adding a fresh color to your cheeks.
I purchased the Unfiltered II Palette which contains the following shades:
Conquest – pastel peach, matte (Limited Edition)
Undefeated – pale pink, matte (Limited Edition)
Powder Play – vivid pink, matte (Limited Edition)
Hot Sand – peach champagne, sheen (Limited Edition)
Fame – pink amber, sheen (Limited Edition)
Candid – mauve raspberry, shimmer (Limited Edition)
I have received samples of NARS Blush before but didn’t really use them or take the time to play with them so this was a new experience all around. I have many friends who love NARS as a brand and their blushes hence why I was interested to get this.
I lighted dipped my blush brush in the NARS Blush and was blown away by the pigment and color. It was just perfect and the right amount of color. Go easy though because one light swipe picked up a ton of product on my brush. Over all I found the powders to be very silky and smooth.
I highly recommend this set or the Unfiltered I if you are in the market for a new blush. One NARS blush is $30 and here you are getting 6 for $59. Quite the steal and deal.
