Rave | Nars Soulshine Blush Palette

During the Christmas shopping season, I was in Sephora grabbing a few gifts when I saw the Nars Soulshine Palette. One thing led to another and next thing you knew I was leaving Sephora with a cheeky new purchase for myself. I couldn't help it, it's just such a gorgeous palette! This palette comes with three blush tones: a shimmery golden apricot, a deep rose, and a gorgeous coral with gold overlay. The neatest part about this palette is the formatting. NARS is actually embossed in the powder with a gorgeous gold shimmer that when swirled all together adds that perfect highlighted touch to your cheeks. This palette is sizable enough that you are able to use each blush shade individually or all together. I find that the pigmentation when swirled together is quite bold, so I opt for a duo fiber brush (I use the MAC 187).  Each shade is gorgeous on it's own but when combined you achieve such a unique, beautiful colour.

I am absolutely obsessed with this palette at the moment and truthfully, I haven't reached for any other blush since this found its way into my collection! If I had to name a negative, my only "complaint" would be that the gold embossing seems to only be at the initial surface level. However, as you can tell by the pictures above, the gold shimmer more or less mixes itself into the other shades the more you use it. Because of the richness and variety amongst the shades, I would say this blush is suitable for just about every skin tone!

What is your go-to blush at the moment?
