One of the more intriguing items to hit Sephora this holiday season is the NARS Danmari All About Cheeks Palette 9966.
From the Sephora website:
What it is:
Based on the exquisite tradition of Kabuki theatre, a classical Japanese dance drama, this palette features six high-pigment cheek powders that let you play up your features like a true performance artist.
What it does:
The ultimate authority in blush, this limited-edition mirrored holiday NARS compact features the essential blush and bronzer shades, ranging from warm bronze and luminous highlighting hues to shockingly bright pink. Turn a new cheek with this fashion-forward mix created exclusively for Sephora.
This set contains:
- 6 x 0.12 oz Cheek Color in Hungry Heart (gold ivory), Super Orgasm (peachy pink with gold glitter), Desire (cotton candy pink), Casino (dark brown with golden shimmer), Orgasm (peachy pink with golden shimmer), Sin (berry with gold shimmer)
(Hungry Heart Duo (I), Orgasm, Desire, Casino, Super Orgasm, Sin)
Danmari features 6 beautiful NARS blush shades in a wide spectrum of colors. As with all of NARS' blushes, these cheek hues are high quality, nicely pigmented and easy to blend. The only one I don't see myself wearing regularly is Desire, since it's such a shocking hot pink. It can be played down, but in general that is just not a shade that I reach for. That being said, with this palette there is something for everyone!
One thing I personally would have suggested they did differently, is replace Orgasm with Gina or another peachy shade. Orgasm is in EVERYTHING and collectors likely have it 10 times over.
This palette is an excellent value, as a single NARS blush is $27 and .16 oz, the blushes in the Danmari palette are .12 oz each and you get 6 of them (making each blush only $10.83) in a convenient black rubberized case.
The NARS Danmari All About Cheeks Palette retails for $65 and is exclusive to Sephora. This item is limited edition and currently not in stock online. I purchased mine in store during the VIB event and they had a ton of them, so I would check locally for availability.
