If there was one thing I never would have dreamed being obsessed about, I might have put my money on blush. I know, I know, right ? I mean every beauty blogger I know, they love and just rave about blushes and here I was, just not interested. Why is all this in past tense you ask ? I’m a convert. Mmhmm, and these day there are many a blushes in my bag, and today let’s talk about a whole palette that’s devoted to these magical powders.

Like probably every other brand, NARS, which is one of my favorite brands ever, has a few launches this holiday season. But the one that has me uber excited was the launch of the NARS Unfiltered Cheek Palettes, these are limited edition.

There is Unfiltered 1, a vibrant more red coral based palette and Unfiltered 2, a relatively muted pink plum based palette. There are 6 (!) blush shades in each palette, at 0.12 oz. A full size NARS blush is 0.16 oz, so the pans in palette are almost full size. And all this gorgeousness retails for 59$.

I have the Unfiltered 1 palette as I felt that I would suit the shades and tones in this palette. Another fun detail is that the mirrored finish of these palettes reflect their base shade color. So the Unfiltered 1 has red mirror finish while Unfiltered 2 has a pink mirror finish. How adorable is that ? These currently show as out of stock on Sephora, but they are available on the NARS Website.

These blushes are really soft, so they’re kick up a lot of powder in the palette. But they are also very pigmented, I was taken aback the first time I used the colors in the second row !

The Unfiltered 1, has some really amazing shades that are complementary. From the Sephora website:

What it is: 
A curated selection of six must-have blush shades in a limited-edition, mirrored palette. 

What it does: 
With a stunning array of warm to cool pigments, the Narsissist Unfiltered Cheek Palette sculpts, shapes, and glows with a covetable wardrobe of high-impact matte and shimmer blushes. The limited-edition set offers richly pigmented, micronized formulas for sheer, buildable color.  

Each palette contains: 
Unfiltered I (left to right): 
-6 x 0.12 oz/ 3.54 mL Blush shades in Watch Me (opalescent gold sheen), Me First (apricot sheen), Takeover (copper rose sheen), Out There (deep russet matte), Chic (rich raspberry matte), Exhibit A (red matte) 

What else you need to know: 
“Your cheek color is a mode of self-expression. Express yourself without limitations.”—François Nars

I really love this palette, it’s great for travel. Also, great as a gift ! Did you get these or are you eyeing one ?
