NARS One Shocking Moment Blush Palette

NARS One Shocking Moment Blush Palette ($69.00 for 1.01 oz.) includes a highlight/contour duo, bronzer, and four blushes. Two of the blushes (Robotic and Blasphemy) are limited edition and exclusive to the palette, while the other products are part of the permanent range. For those keeping track of value, this palette contains: $36 worth of contour/highlight duo, $40 worth of bronzer (it is actually larger than a full-sized bronzer), and $90 worth of blush, which yields a total value of $166; this is good as far as palettes go, and it’s particularly good for high-end and for the NARS brand. I do think that a contouring duo is risky, since it will not suit all skin tones, and of course, we have seen Laguna umpteen amount of times, so that might be a waste for those who have a few NARS palettes already! Otherwise, it’s a decent to good palette that will be best for those who like buildable blushes, rather than richly pigmented ones.

Top 10: Luminous Blushes (Warm-Toned Edition)

If you’ve followed my favorites, you’ll know that I favor more shimmery blush, and specifically, luminous blush. The kind of shimmer that doesn’t read frosted or metallic but more of glowing sheen. Here are some of my favorites of the moment!

  1. Chanel Golden Sun (280) — A Warm Brown with a Luminous finish.
  2. Laura Geller Ballerina — A Warm Copper with a Luminous finish.
  3. Chanel Malice (71) — A Warm Coral with a Luminous finish.
  4. MAC Make You Mine — A Warm Copper with a Satin finish.
  5. Makeup Geek Love Affair — A Warm Pink with a Satin finish.
  6. Clinique Peach Pop (02) — A Warm Coral with a Satin finish.
  7. NARS Lovejoy — A Warm Plum with a Pearl finish.
  8. MAC Love Thing — A Warm Plum with a Luminous finish.
  9. Burberry Blossom — A Warm Coral with a Luminous finish.
  10. Tom Ford Beauty Love Lust — A Warm Coral with a Frost finish.
