NARS One Night Stand Palette Review & Swatches!

Hey everyone, today’s post is an exciting one! NARS lovers, I hope you’re ready! Have you ever seen something and immediately known that you kinda need it in your life? Well for me that was the One Night Stand Palette from the NARS x Guy Bourdin collection! Ever since I saw this palette I knew I had to have it, especially since I missed out on the Danmari Palette.

The One Night Stand palette comes in the usual sleek and soft packaging with NARS printed on the lid, there is also a red lipstick smear with Guy Bourdin written on it. Inside the palette is a full sized mirror which is great! The pans in the palette are separated well and are definitely big enough for a blush brush!

This palette contains 6 individual pans – each pan contains 4g of product! Included are 4 blushes, a bronzer and a highlighter. Of the 6 shades included 3 are brand new! Even though I already own Orgasm (mini) and Laguna (duo) I had to have this palette simply for the brand new shades, I’m not sure if they will become permanent, though. I think that sometimes when palettes are made, the quality can be a little… Lacking. That is definitely not the case for the One Night Stand palette – the quality is NARS standard, just gorgeous!

Firstly there is Devotee – a pale, frosty, pink based highlighter. This shade is extremely shimmery! The pink tone makes it a perfect highlight shade to wear with any of these blushes, Devotee is also stunning as an eyeshadow!
The next shade is Mistinguette – a matte, bright pink! This shade makes me instantly think of Saint Germain by MAC! Mistinguette is a little scary to look at in the pan but it transfers to a lovely glowing pink on the cheeks! I should also mention that this blush feels way too soft to be a matte!

I’m going to skip Orgasm, Laguna & Deep Throat for now!

The last shade in the palette is Goulou, this is a medium dirty pink/berry color, packed with golden shimmer. Unexpectedly, Goulou is my favourite of the palette! There may be similar shades out there but I haven’t seen one like it! I have a tan at the moment and I can see this blush getting a lot of wear when I have a tan!

This palette took my by surprise a little, the quality is beautiful, the colors are beautiful, it’s a must for a NARS lover! One thing I would suggest is please… No more Orgasm… Otherwise this palette is just what I hoped it would be, and it sold out so fast! I heard that there will be another release in December – smart! I think this palette would be awesome for anyone really, whether you don’t own any NARS blushes or if you own them all there will definitely be something about the One Night Stand palette that you will like!

** There is some controversy surrounding this collection by NARS. The photography by Guy Bourdin has been said to represent violence against women. Although I sincerely do not think this is what was intended I respect both decisions – whether people buy this collection or not. I am choosing to keep my opinion to myself – I’m here for the makeup!

FOTD ft. Nars – Coconut Grove

Today my makeup was super quick & easy! I thought I’d put together a little FOTD (Face Of The Day) post!

First I applied Palmers Eventone BB Cream in Fair/light all over my face but avoiding under my eyes – this product has SPF. I then concealed under my eyes using Rimmel London Wake Me Up Concealer in 010 Ivory bringing it down about 2cm for a little under eye highlight. While the concealer set I used the Elf Eyebrow Kit in Ash (I only used the wax side) to fill in my brows!

From the Naked 2 palette I used Tease in my crease and blended it out with Foxy, I used Bootycall as a brow highlight. I used my Nars single eyeshadow in Coconut Grove on my eyelid and blended into the crease. I also used Avon Super Shock Max Mascara (not pictured).

image

I was going for bronzed cheeks so I used Nars Laguna for a very light contour and Physicians Formula Happy Booster Light Bronzer as a blush. To highlight I used Elf blush in Gotta Glow.

image

I lined my lips with NYX 839 Dolly Pink lip liner and dabbed MAC Saint Germain lipstick on top!

7 hours later and my eyeshadow hasn’t creased, even without a base! Yay!
