Product Rave: NARS Danmari palette

As you all probably know the Sephora friends and family sale is going on until November 2. There aren't a whole lot of products that I've been pining for, but I knew there was one thing that I had to take advantage of the sale for - the NARS Danmari all about cheeks palette.

This limited edition palette is an exclusive to Sephora and contains 6 of their beautifully pigmented blushes for only $65, an amazing deal considering each NARS blush is $27. Surprisingly, I don't have any of these blushes in my collection, which made this palette that much more valuable to me. Each blush is .12 oz compared to a full sized .16 oz, and with the amount that I use, that .04 oz will not be missed.

So here it is, the most beautiful palette I have ever laid eyes on:
The shades from left to right, top to bottom:
Hungry Heart: A cream color highlight loaded with glitter. This transforms you into a disco ball princess, which means I probably won't wear this. This was a disappointment, but the other colors make up for it.

Orgasm: A cult favorite peachy pink that I never bought because there are so many dupes for this, I could never justify it. I'm glad I have it now though as it is really a beautiful color that is perfect for everyday.

Desire: One of the blushes that got me really excited about this palette. I have been lusting after this blush for a while now, and I've tried to find other blushes that are similar, but they just don't compare to this one. It's a unique bubblegum hot pink that isn't everyone's cup of tea, but if used with a light hand can look amazing.

Casino: the darker counterpart to the famous Laguna bronzer and the darkest bronzer I own. Like Laguna, it has tiny golden shimmers that don't really translate to the skin, but give a nice glow. Although this bronzer looks scary dark in the pan, it still works with my skin tone and would be nice for darker skin tones.

Super Orgasm: I wore this today and despite the specks of chunky glitter that you can see in the pan, it actually comes off as more of a sheen and is like a lighter, more brightening version of orgasm. Is this totally necessary if you already have orgasm? Probably not. It's pretty, but I wish they hadn't put both of them in the  palette.

Sin: Another blush that I have been wanting to try. It's a beautiful berry plum shade with gold shimmer and I love it. This blush is perfect for fall and is one of those that gives you instantly contoured cheek bones.


This palette makes me so happy and I really hope that they come out with more palettes like this in the future. Blush palettes to me are 10 times more exciting than eye shadow palettes; it's too bad there aren't many out there.

I highly recommend getting this while it's still around and while the friends and family sale is going on! It would make a great holiday present or just a really nice treat to yourself =)

Hope you're all well!

  4. I really thought about this palette but I didn't think i'd like ALL of the shades. I may have been wrong. I like about 4/6ths of it. Darn!

  5. This looks so incredible - very, very jealous! I really want to try Nars Orgasm blush - I use a 'dupe' from Benefit, but here in the UK, it actually costs a few pounds more than the Nars!

  12. I picked this up too!! I don't own much blushes in general and have always wanted to try some from NARS so I couldn't pass this palette up either! :]

  13. I love the idea of this palette, but I don't know whether I would use all of the shades. I don't own orgasm/super orgasm and it seems like a great deal.
