NARS Guy Bourdin Splendor in The Grass cheek palette
available online and from Selfridges
When it comes to blushers, NARS know what they’re doing! With stunning shades and equally suggestive names to match, the blush lineup from NARS is so tempting and this divine cheek palette from the Guy Bourdin launch is no exception. I love a good palette whether it be for for the eyes or the cheeks and this one has been by my side ever since I received it for Christmas. The four shades – Sex Appeal, Albatross, Angelika and Dolce Vita are all available individually from NARS but work so perfectly together in this blush kit with a highlighter, bronzing/contour shade, a pretty peach and darling pink encased in the classic monochrome NARS packaging.
The four shades in this cheek palette have different finishes and can be used alone or combined together for an ultra luxe, shimmery finish with the golden Albatross highlighter layered over the sparkly pink Angelika blush or popped on top of the soft, matte peach. Dolce Vita, a matte dusky rose, is one of my favourite shades from this palette as it is quite different to anything else I own and looks really striking with pale skin and an burgundy eyeshadow like MAC Sketch for an night time look. This palette is just great when light packing for a weekend away because it is so compact and versatile and has every shade you could wish for whether you want something light and fresh during the day or something more daring for dinner in the evening. It has definitely spurred me on to investigate the NARS artist palettes more and I now have my eye on the At First Sight eye and cheek palette. Swoon!
