A New Beauty from Nars...

When a limited edition product hits the shops, I am like a kid in a sweet shop. I don't know if it's the possible thought that the item could go out of stock, or because limited edition packaging is usually eye wateringly good, but something clicks in my head and I just have to have it. The Nars Virtual Domination Cheek Palette was no exception to this. I am a sucker for Nars, I'm a sucker for their blushers and I'm a sucker for packaging, obviously it was meant to be.

This five piece cheek palette houses a blusher for everyone, for every occasion and it even contains a highlighter. Each product in the palette is finely milled and pigmented which I always love about Nars' products.

Miss Liberty is a light golden peach highlighter with a white sparkle running through it that reflects beautifully when light hits the face, which of course this means it's not a very subtle highlighter and one I'll be choosing to wear during the winter months.

Deep Throat is a sheer coral blush which has an undertone of gold. The colour pay off of this isn't a strong as the other blushes in the palette but it creates a soft, peach sheen on the cheeks.

Sex Fantasy is described as a "pale lavender pink", a pink blush that is very cool toned and offers a matte finish. This shade is one I've not really figured out if it suits me yet, I'm a creature of habit and I like my peach and orange blushes so this has yet to win me over.

Final Cut is a matte blush in a peach coral which looks almost neon in the pan but the colour payoff but really compliments my skin tone.

Of course, the palette does contain the bronzer Laguna which is my holy grail bronzing powder, I was actually running out of this so when I saw this palette included it, it sealed the deal.

The palette's packaging is spot on, it's in an easy wipe-clean casing which is different from the dirt attracting black of the standard Nars products. It's the perfect size to fit in a medium make up bag and it's sturdy meaning it's travel friendly, I love a palette I can take in my make up bag when I'm running late for work (which is often). This retails for £45.00 on Space NK but hurry ladies, I have a feeling it's this years answer to the One Night Stand Palette.
