NARS Realm of the Senses Blush Palette

NARS Realm of the Senses Blush Palette ($41.00 for 0.42 oz.) consists of three shades that can be used individually or swirled together. The texture is soft and very finely-milled–almost to the point where it can turn powdery. I recommend using your softest brush, as any brush with stiffer bristles will turn the surface quite powdery. This is especially key if you only want to use the shades individually. The beige-ish shade was the only one that had slightly sheer color payoff, while the other two shades (and then all three swirled together) had good color coverage. One shade in this palette is supposed to be a sheerer, highlighting shade, so that would account for the sheerness in the lighter beige shade here. I’ve been wearing them swirled together for six hours now, and the color is still going strong with no signs of fading. (I will update this post when I’ve wrapped up for the night!) Though there was powderiness in the pan/texture, it didn’t show up on the cheeks; the blushes were easy to blend and sat quite well on the skin without emphasizing pores.

NARS Brow Perfectors

NARS Brow Perfector ($22.00 for 0.007 oz.) will be available in four shades that range from blonde to black (but no redhead). The formula is described as “velvety” with a “natural matte finish” and “natural ingredients [that] ensure brows are nourished, soft, and smooth.” That last bit, I couldn’t attest to and don’t actually know what they’re referring to as far as particulars. There’s a lot of focus on the precision tip of the pencil that is oval-shaped.
