I am a complete and utter newbie when it comes to the world of NARS. Call yourself a beauty blogger I hear you say? Well this marks the beginning of my first “high end” product that I can call my own. I received the Virtual Domination Cheek Palette (which is now subsequently sold out as it is a limited edition palette… just keep your eyes peeled online!) for christmas and it was love at first site. The packaging first are foremost is just so eye catching. I love the cracked/webbed effect on the front of the case, and the case itself is super sturdy. I literally sat there for a good 5 minutes opening and closing the case, admiring it’s satisfying “click” noise. Don’t ask. Inside is a full sized mirror and the all important 3 blushes, a highlighter and a bronzer.
Miss Liberty, a permanent range of Highlighting Blush, is the gorgeous shimmery highlighter. I’m not actually put off by the glitter element, but other reviews I have read have completely slated it. Once applied, it gives a lovely sheen glow. Laguna Bronzer looks pretty scary in the pan but it is surprising how sheer it is. This makes the bronzer easy to build up to your preferred taste. Deep Throat is a sheer-coral colour with hints of gold and a pink shimmer. I love applying it to my cheeks to give a subtle flushed and glowy feel. Sex Fantasy & Final Cut are limited editions and exclusive to this palette.
I’m looking forward to playing around with this palette some more and creating some gorgeous day to evening looks. I’m glad Santa, *ahem Dad*, was able to buy this for christmas as it’s such a steal. The palette costs £45, but the products combined have a retail value of £117. And do you know what makes it even better? The products in this palette are 0.01oz lighter than the full sized products. How crazy is that?! Win win win.
