          Comments about NARSissist Cheek Studio Palette:

          I have a single NARS blush that I LOVE and have hit pan on, so I thought this palette would be a major win. Sadly, it was a fail for me. The colors are really pretty and the packaging is nice, but that's where it ends. The formula is not the same as their single blushes and there was hardly any pigment when I swatched, I was shocked. The blush colors barely showed up on my skin, and this palette is way too expensive to have to work hard for color payoff so I returned it. Get it together, NARS.

            Comments about NARSissist Cheek Studio Palette:

            I appreciate that this palette has a bronzer (Laguna bronzer), contour colour, highlight, and 4 different blushes, all have different finishes and different undertones. It is a versatile palette that can also be used as eyeshadows, which makes it ideal for travel. The palette itself has a mirror in the front and on the inside when you open it up. It is quite sleek and doesn't weigh much. The pigmentation of the powders are quite good and lasts throughout a full work day for me. I would say that the only drawback is the price tag, but I would look at it more like an investment. You are paying for 7 highly pigmented cheek colours that will last for quite a while. I would recommend this palette for the young professional who is looking for simplicity and classic beautiful looks. For reference, I have NC35 combo/oily skin

              Best face palette. I was not sure about all the colors but I was pleasantly surprised how beautiful all the colors look on my skin. Very natural looking but easy to blend and intensify the color.

              i didn't want to buy just the $40 Laguna bronzer, but when I saw the palette with the laguna bronzer plus the contour shades, the blushes, and highlight, this was a set and deal for me! I love it on my light-medium skin tone!

                      Comments about NARSissist Cheek Studio Palette:

                      The Narsissist Cheek Studio Palette is a gorgeous, beginner-friendly alternative to harsher powder or cream contouring palettes. Instead of deep tones in the hollows and around the perimeter of the face offset by lighter tones (though the two contouring blushes could be used to approximate it), this palette relies on different depths of blush to achieve a similar but softer result.

                      1. Laguna Bronzer: This is a classic in the NARS stable. It's an ideal shade for fair to medium-light tones, with just the right amount (re: very little) golden shimmer. It blends cleanly, and is generally a dream to work with, though the intensity of the shade is greater without a base setting powder. My only complaint is that it's difficult to pick up only this product with a bronzer brush, since it sits so closely to the other cheek shades.

                      2. The Contouring Blushes aren't typical of traditional contouring shades, since both have a pinkish—rather than neutral or golden—undertone, and as such they look better around the cheek area than they do chiseling out features around the rest of the face. But unlike the bronzer and blushes, these are true mattes.

                      3. Blushes: These four shades are exceptionally curated for the palette, far more so than they appear before application. They work so well together in a variety of combinations distributed around the cheekbone, apple, highlighting ridge, etc.

                      Overall, it's a rather understated palette, and one that doesn't really offer that many different types of cheek looks (unlike some other blush palettes, which seem designed more to be worn one at a time), but I highly recommend it, especially for anyone already intending to purchase the Laguna Bronzer.

                          Our blush formula should not get hard pan if the palette is stored correctly. Make sure the palette is closed when not using and not left in extreme temperatures.

                          Since the mirror is glass, if the palette is dropped it can certainly crack the mirror. I would say though the mirror will not scratch or crack easier than any other brand that has mirrors in their compacts or palettes.

                          All of the blush shades in this palette are exclusive to this palette. Unfortunately at this time you cannot buy any of these shades individual.

                          However the palette is a great value and is less than the cost of 2 full sized NARS blushes. It also provides you with a bronzer as well as our contour blush to give you a complete look with just one product.
