Beginning August 1, 2013 (and currently online) NARS is launching two limited edition Cheek Palette Blushes exclusive to SephoraSoulshine and Realm of the Senses.

What Sephora says about the NARS Cheek Palette Blush:

What it is:
A limited-edition blush palette featuring an exclusive NARS logo design.

What it does:
Play up cheekbones with a shimmering color pop. This mosaic of three beautiful colors is perfect for layering on a lustrous highlight or creating a sophisticated sculpted look.

What else you need to know:
Soulshine palette features a peachy pink with gold shimmer; a sheer golden apricot; and a soft rose tone with golden shimmer. Realm of the Senses palette includes a flirty, sheer peach; shimmering bronzed rose; and sparkling gold sand.


Soulshine is the darker and more pigmented of the two cheek palettes with shades of pink, bronzed peach and raspberry I found when I swirled the shades together this blush was highly pigmented and definitely needed to be handled with care. It wasn’t overly glittery or shimmery. The texture was soft and easy to blend. Much to my surprise, this is my favorite of the two! I’m wearing it in the pics in this post.

Realm of the Senses

Realm of the Senses is the lighter of the two palettes with shades of peachy pink, bronze and beige (which can act as a blush/bronzer/highlight or be swirled together). This wore lightly on me, but if you’re using the pink with golden shimmer you need to watch how much you’re using, because that golden shimmer shows up on the cheeks and is really very apparent. As with Soulshine, this blush was soft and very easy to apply and blend.

NARS Cheek Palette Blush retails for $41.00 and is available exclusively at Sephora.
