It’s been a while since I’ve been so taken by a new product that I’ve gone into full beauty-mission mode. Running (fast walking) to the nearest store on my lunch, to no joy. Then purchasing online in basically sheer desperation to get my hands on something that if I was really honest with myself I don’t need. But do I want it? Hell yes! So the purchase was made and here’s a little look. I’ll post a full review with swatches next week but for now – let’s just admire the gorgeousness of the NARS Guy Bourdin One Night Stand Palette.
If you’re a sucker for a lovely blusher, be warned…this is a beauty!
The blusher shades included are (top left-right): Devotee Highlighting Blush, Mistinguette Blush, Orgasm and (bottom left-right) Laguna, Deep Throat, Goulue.
Devotee is the highlighter of the six, with Mustinguette the bright pink – a little like MAC well dressed in the sense that it might look a bit intimidating but gives a gorgeous healhty glow. Then there’s the classic Orgasm with it’s peachy pink shade with golden shimmer. Then on the bottom row there’s the famous Laguna Bronzer – a brown with subtle shimmer, Deep Throat (the slightly peachier cousin on Orgasm…those cheeky naming NARS folk…) then finally Goulue a deep pink that will make a lovely berry shade of blush for Autumn/Winter.
For me it was basically the Mistinguette highlighter and Deep Throat that sold it to me – I love a good highlighter and Deep Throat has been on my wishlist since I had it applied at the Astalift foundation launch a few weeks or so ago.
Is it good value for £45 – well, I say yes. Six blushers that you would happily pay around £26 each for in one pretty palette? In my make-up obsessed mind that is a bargain!
The palette is available on Space NK now (although I believe it’s been very popular and is on back order) I predict it wont be long until this sells out so if you want one I suggest buying ASAP!
