The Nars Guy Bourdin One Night Stand blush palette, in one word, WOW! I think every blogger and their dog has bought this, and for good reason, it is simply stunning! When I found out its was available to pre-order on Space NK, I was there like a shot and it has not disappointed.
There are four blushes, one bronzer and a highlighting blush housed in this gorgeous compact, which makes it the ideal travel companion for your face! Each pan contains 4g of product, which is 3/4 the size of an individual blush, so even though the initial outlay of £45 sounds pricey, it is actually great value for money, as a single blush costs £21.50 alone!
So here is the lowdown on each shade:
Devotee Highlighting Blush – Alabaster Glow. Quite a pale, frosty highlight, which leaves a lovely sheen. This is possibly a little pale for my skintone, however does leaves a gorgeous glow without being at all glittery. I also think it would make an excellent inner corner highlight for the eye.
Mistinguette Blush: Bright Pink. Used sparingly this blush really does perk up the complexion, adding a pop of pink to the cheeks. This is the only matte blush in the palette, so although it is quite vibrant, it also looks very natural at the same time. Looks great with a bronzed skin.
Orgasm Blush: Peachy pink with golden shimmer. I have this in my collection already and even though I do quite like the colour, it does always seem to make my cheeks look a bit too flushed…mind you I suppose that’s all in the name, so I shouldn’t be surprised! It’s a cult classic and Nars’ best selling blush.
Laguna Bronzer: Brown powder with golden shimmer. The best bronzer ever! Love, love, love it! Predominantly matte with a fine golden shimmer, this is great to contour with as well as an all over bronzer! I have a full review here.
Deep Throat Blush: Sheer Peach. This has been on my wishlist forever, and I am so happy that I now have it in my collection? I love it’s peachy pink tone that adds a beautiful tone to the complexion. What did I wait so long to buy it?!
Goulue Blush: Medium Pink. This looks quite dark in the pan, but looks beautiful on the skin and adds a lovely warm dimension. I like this a lot! Perfect for autumn/winter.
So I think it is safe to say I am in love! This product has truely excited me like no other and very happy to have it in my grasp now. I think Space NK has now sold out, but have heard rumours that they may be getting more stock at the beginning of December…watch this space! It would make the perfect Christmas present!
