First Impressions: NARS Danmari All About Cheeks Palette

Sunday, 20 November 2011
Hiya,

I recently got hold of the new limited edition NARS Danmari palette which consists of a collection of six powders. I also needed a pump for my NARS Sheer Glow foundation so picked that up too.


I do wish there was a pump with all foundations or a standard pump that would fit all foundation bottles, it would be so much easier to just have one which we could use. They are not too pricey though so it isn't too much of a big deal.




There are four blushers, one bronzer and one highlighter in this palette.




I wanted to try out Orgasm, Casino and Sin the most. Orgasm definitely lived up to the expectations but I still prefer Deepthroat because I feel like it flatters my skin tone a little better. Casino is a really pretty bronzer. It works so well with my skin and looks very natural.  Sin is a unique shade which I don't have a dupe of. I am really excited about wearing it.

The Hungry Heart highlighter (the one on the left from the Hungry Heart duo) is very subtle with a light, gold sheen. I usually love my shimmery Accessorize bronzer in Golden Sand for highlighting but this is fantastic for use in the winter when I don't want anything too sparkly.

Super Orgasm is a very pretty shade but it has some large chunks of glitter which are pretty worrying when swatched! I feel like there will be a lot of fallout which isn't something I look for in a blush. I will still try to work with it though.

Lastly, Desire is a really bright pink and it will be a fun shade to wear. All the shades are very pigmented as NARS products always are.

The only thing that made me hesitate (apart from the excessive glitter in Super Orgasm) is the price. It retails at £45. But if you consider the product you get it is actually a fabulous deal. One blush/bronzer/highlight usually costs around £20.50 and although these are smaller in size, really, do we ever finish one blush?

The icing on the cake was a free sample which I received too.
I have not tried the NARS Makeup Cleansing Oil before so it will be interesting to see how well this works.


What do you think of the palette? Would you buy it?

  7. I bought this as well, and I'm so glad I did. its perfect for traveling, and I don't own any Nars blushes or bronzers before this, so it was a great price to get so many colors.

    i like casino so much i might get that in a single as well for my everyday makeup bag

  12. I think I'd buy that palette just to give it a try. The colors seem neutral enough. I have an olive complexion and I'm mixed so my skin is super finicky about what looks flattering and what doesn't.
