NARS Blame It On NARS Blush Palette

NARS Blame It On NARS Blush Palette ($59.00 for 0.56 oz.) includes a highlighter, bronzer, and two blushes, plus a traval-sized ITA brush. I have reviewed most of these shades before, so the list of similar shades is pretty up-to-date, so rather than pull a new link, I’ve included the current lists as they stand. I did test each of these versions for wear, pigmentation, application, and so forth. I think the packaging is really cool, but I wish the compact didn’t feel so bulky. I really like some of NARS’ blushes, but there are a fair amount that have been misses for me. This palette is a bit of a mixed bag, and I find there is too much variance from release to release.

Laura Mercier Art of Colour Eye & Cheek Palette

Laura Mercier Art of Colour Eye & Cheek Palette ($79.00 for 0.83 oz.) includes eight eyeshadows, one blush, and a full-sized mascara and is a Nordstrom Anniversary Exclusive. It’s a disappointing palette; I think it looks and swatches better than it applies, and it’s a palette that should be used with an eyeshadow primer to minimize some of the issues that I experienced (like adhesion and longevity). Some of the eyeshadows ran a little drier, one was quite firm and difficult to use altogether, while the blush was horrendous. I would have also preferred to see them ditch the mascara and drop the price.
