NARS Nordstrom's Best Cheek Palette: Orgasm, Deep Throat, Luster and Desire Blushes, Albatross Highlighter and Laguna Bronzer Review & Swatches

I've always heard really good things about some of NARS' older blushes & bronzers. Especially, Laguna & Orgasm. Did you know NARS is coming out with an Orgasm lipstick soon? Interesting huh?  During Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale (the end of last year) they offered this limited edition NARS Nordstrom's Best Cheek Palette. It's no longer available and I forgot how much it cost, but it was a really good deal. It gave me the chance to try many of the blushes I wanted to from NARS. Because you guys know NARS is not cheep. LOL This palette contains 4 blushes (Orgasm, Deep Throat, Luster Desire), 1 highlighter (Albatross)  and 1 bronzer (Laguna). I'm really happy to say all blushes (even that crazy pink Desire shade - I blended it out) were complimentary to my skin tone.  The bronzer Laguna is a gorgeous brown and gives a very nice bronzing to the skin. It's very buildable. I was worried about the highlighter Albatross because it was chalky on the back of my hand, but it gives off a really nice lit within glow when blended out. What are your thoughts? Have you tried any of these? How did they work for you? All of these are available individually at NARS. I'm still loving the NARS 2016 Undercover Collection. I'll review one more set of blushes this weekend my friends and that will be it for my blush collection. LOL I'll then move on to hmmm... maybe highlighters. We'll see :)

I have orgasm and haven't touched it in forever. Your swatches make me want to pull it out. Now I really want this palette! It looks great for travel and I think I would wear most of these shades.

NARS definitely is one of my favorite brands and they make my favorite cheek products! I have a ton of their blushes! I have orgasm and deep throat and love them both. I use laguna everyday and I love albatross as well! I'm so happy you love these Kim! They all look amazing on you!! I need to get that luster shade, after seeing it on you I know I'll love it too!

Mica T said...

Oh wow they do look lovely on you Kim! Isn't it funny how you can see it int eh pan and on your hand and yet be surprised and happy when it's on your face - why blogs are good I guess, as you can't always predict from looking at it what it will be like to wear! :)

Hope you are having a great weekend :)

The colours are so pretty, dear!

This is such an awesome palette, Kim:) I've always loved NARS, and I think I've tried all these blushes/highlighters. They are indeed, good, although I must admit that I wanted Orgasm to be more pigmented.
Anyhoo, have an awesome weekend!

Jars is one of the best out there. I like the subtle shade of orgasm the best.

I'd love to try more from NARS, I had a cheek palette a while back but I sold it in a blog sale but I'm tempted to try something else now.

What a great range! I really like Desire and Orgasm in you. I've always wanted to try our their blushes and at least will try out the NARS multi stick soon!

Nars blushes have been my favourites for years. I first tried Orgasm in 2010 and I've rarely switched my blush since. I started using the Laguna bronzer a few years ago and, unbelievably, love it even more than the blush! I go through it almost twice as fast, ha ha, so I probably wouldn't go for one of these palettes, but I can definitely attest to how great the products in them are.

You're preaching to the choir with me hahaha. Total NARS addict. I've been obsessed with Orgasm these last few years, even though I've had it in my possession for almost a decade. I never really understood its appeal until I finally (yes finally) swatched it on myself. It's such a great colour on any tone (on me I think it looks amazing when I'm at my natural pale self) Laguna has been a fave for nearly a decade too. I never tried Deep Throat and Albatross was something I really wanted to try but keep putting it off because of the $$$ hahaha.

Nars Albatross is one of my favourite highlighters! I find their Orgasm blush really pretty too, but I always feel awkward asking for "one orgasm, please" at the store haha.

Rowena @ rolala loves said...

This palette is like a NARS greatest hits Kim! I don't really wear powder blush anymore because I find them too drying but NARS Sin is still in regular rotation because I love the color and formula so much.

Lorena said...

The shades are so appealing Kim and how amazing they all looked good.
I have only heard good things about NARS and have yet to try their products.

Diva Desle said...

I haven't tried any of these NAUGHTY Nars blushes. 😂 I love that they put all the iconic shades in one palette. Great for people like me who need to catch up and step up their makeup game!

Tanya Dufour said...

This palette looks really pretty! Deep Throat is my favorite. I have Laguna and Orgasm and NEVER reach for them. I don't know if they just aren't pigmented compared to my other face products or what. Maybe I'll try to give them another try.

jo said...

I've been using Orgasm for years. LOL! And you're right, all the colours compliment your skin nicely Kim.

Coco said...

This Albatros highlighter looks great on you. And I love how Deep Throat compliments your complexion. These names are quite daunting lol. I'm loving this "blush special" review series! Baci, Valeria

This is one of the best Palette NARS has ever come out with, it's my fav and I love the rubbery packaging more than their hard plastic chunky ones.
