Narsissist Cheek Palette

It's fair to say I was more than just a little excited when this came to my door yesterday, especially as I pre-ordered it and was told it wasn't available until the 17th of this month. You have to love a surprise like that!


I'm still pretty new to Nars as a brand, I only own three other products from them, but two things I'd wanted to try for such a long time now were Orgasm blush and Laguna bronzer. I have always loved the colour of the blush and being quite pale I have always stayed away from bronzers but every time I have tested Laguna on me it seemed ok, not orange or too dark.


This gorgeous little, and I mean little -so much smaller than I thought it was! palette contains both of these products and a limited edition highlighter. It also comes with a really lovely soft brush that is good to use with all three products


Orgasm (the blush) is a perfect peachy/coral/pink with gold glitter through it, the glitter is quite apparent in the palette but I was surprised how subtle it comes off off on your cheeks...I did expect to see it more than you do.

Laguna (the bronzer) is a perfect "I've been in the sun" bronze, it isn't muddy or orange and most impressively...it doesn't make me look ridiculous. It can be very subtle or you can built it to a darker shade if you prefer. I now wish I hadn't waited so long to get this. The very fine gold shimmer through it is a nice touch too.

Devotee (the highlight) is just beautiful! It is a gorgeous product and is the main reason I am so happy I got this. The light kind of washes it out in the pictures but it is a very pale pink highlighter that just gives a lovely glow to the cheeks. For me it is the perfect shade, I sometimes don't get along with gold tone highlights, I much prefer cooler pinky tones and I am in love with this. It is limited edition with this palette and as far as I know you can't buy it alone.

I got mine from Space NK but if you are in the US you can also get it from Sephora. The palette is £35 or $49 and while it is small you are getting three great products, also the brush that comes with it is perfect travel size!

    1. I was actually very shocked at the size! I really was expecting it to be bigger, but then again it is just the perfect size to fit into a small make up bag or for travel. Thank you for your comment :)
