Welcome to the second edition of Flashback Friday! Again it's where I go through my makeup stash and pick one item to showcase and let it have it's day to shine! Today we are going to talk about the Nars Danmari All About Cheek Palette. I guess you can say I was one of the "lucky ones" to have gotten my hands on this palette. This was a limited edition, holiday palette that sold out in a flash. It consists of 1 highlighter, 1 bronzer, and 4 blushes. The Brand Nars was created by François Nars, a hugely successful runway makeup artist, and influential image maker.
The Only reason I'm blogging about a Limited Edition Palette, is because all of these lovelies can be purchased as singles, but they put them together for this fabulous palette for the holidays a few years back. The highlighter is the one of the highlighters from the Hungry Heart Duo, or Highlight (1), the bronzer is Casino. The 4 blush colours are: Orgasm, Super Orgasm, Desire and Sin. I absolutely love these colours. Now blushes are my thing! And I have been know to use a heavy hand while applying it.... and DAMN I like it that way.
So this above picture shows the highlight (right) and the bronzer (left). Again top right is one of the two highlights from the Hungry Heart Duo and top left is the Casino. The highlight is described as an Iridescent gold ivory, and the bronzer as dark brown with golden shimmer.
These above two are the all favourite Orgasm blushes. Right is the original Orgasm, and Left is Super Orgasm. The difference between the two is the larger glitter in the Super Orgasm, then in the regular. Orgasm is described as peachy pink with shimmer and Super Orgasm as peachy pink with gold glitter.
Right is Desire and Left is Sin. These are my absolute favourites. Such beautiful shades. Desire is described as cotton candy pink and Sin as berry with gold shimmer. Perfecto!!!!
Above are swatches taken in different lighting, natural and fluorescent. The individual blushes are available at Sephora for $38.00, the Casino bronzer for $52.00 and unfortunately I was unable to find the Hungry Heart Duo Highlight for sale on Sephora Website, but I'm sure an internet search would provide you with other options.
I'm hoping your able to see how beautiful these powders are. They are high end products, with higher prices, but well worth the money!!
Until Next Time
