    It's ok I guess...

    By mari93

    Comments about NARSissist Cheek Studio Palette:

    I was very excited to use the Laguna bronze and the blush shades for the first time. This is my first Nar product I owned and I'm not wowed my this. everyone raves about the Laguna, its not that pigmented at all. I found this very weird bc I swatched the replay product in store and it feels nothing like what I brought home. No pigment at all. The only pigmented products would be the darker blushes and the contour shade. I would not recommend it, too expensive for the lack of pigment

    Pigmentation Sucks and Tough to Blend

    By Lauren

    from SC

    Comments about NARSissist Cheek Studio Palette:

    Contour shade and Laguna are decent but still can be pretty patchy. The highlight is low key a joke and the blushes would be pretty IF they had any color pay off and then they are hard to blend if you get any pigmentation out of them. I had to re-press it myself and it helped a little but I would not recommended. Save your money and just go for the NARS singles, I mean heck wet and wild has better blushes than are in this palette for $3.

    Comments about NARSissist Cheek Studio Palette:

    i wish i had returned this and got my money back its total trash. this was my first nars purchase ever and made me totally rethink the brand. The Laguna bronzer hardly even works i think its got to be a diff formula then the legendary laguna bronzer every one talks about. the blush colors are weird. idk it just sucks so bad. save your money!!!!!!

    This was just ok, I like a few of the other blush and highlight bronzers better. Not enough shimmer for me. Returned. It is a good value though!

    Every day favorite

    By Jubilee

    from Florida

    Comments about NARSissist Cheek Studio Palette:

    I'm really surprised by all of the low reviews. I bought this palette during a previous sale and it sat unopened for a long time. When I remembered that I still had it packed away, I decided to play with it. It very quickly replaced my Anastasia contour and multiple individual blushes.

    Tips: the contour color can go on patchy if using the wrong brush. I was frustrated until I switched up my brush and now it's perfect.
    Despite other reviewers stating the color payoff was lacking, I think this may be a brush issue as well. I use the It Cosmetics Love Beauty Fully Blush Brush. My Lancôme brush did not provide the level of color payoff in application as my It blush brush. This may be due to the difference in density and hair fiber. The only color I don't use is the super light baby pink but darker skin tones would look beautiful using it on the apples of the cheeks.
    I have a light hand when applying bronzer and the It Love Beauty Fully Flawless Powder Brush helps with my application. In a side by side comparison to the individually sold Laguna, the color was slightly different but not really noticeable unless you are actually swatching side by side.
    The light color works great for cutting in my contour to bake but if you try to set your undereye, it may be a little too dry. I will stick to my Cover Fx setting powder for that.

    When I tell you it replaced my contour and other blushes, I truly mean it. In a pinch, I've used the lighter mauve that has some shimmer as quick eyeshadow. The palette has been great for traveling as well.

    Disappointing

    By Makeup Junkie

    from North Hollywood, CA

    Comments about NARSissist Cheek Studio Palette:

    Not pigmented at all. I'm not at all that dark and you couldn't even tell that I had put any on. Terribly disappointed especially for the price.

    poor color payoff

    By RN4U

    from Los Angeles

    Comments about NARSissist Cheek Studio Palette:

    For the price I really had high expectations of this palette. I have a light medium peachy golden olive skin tone (MAC C5 in studio fix powder foundation) and I can barely see any color when I apply this product. I love the colors in the pan but just don't see it on my face. Very disappointed.

    Just not Nars Quality

    By Jessica

    from Michigan

    Comments about NARSissist Cheek Studio Palette:

    I wanted to love this, and I wanted to make this work, but for the cost and brand - this just does not live up to its standards. Hardly any color payoff. I took this on a vacation, thinking it would be everything I needed in one compact, but I felt like I was digging in the bronzer section just to get some color.

    • Q:

      I'm a 63 year old woman with sensitive skin. Is Nars make up safe for me? I'm allergic to most make up.
      Asked on 11/8/2017 by Joydaisy from New York

      • Brand Expert

        A:

        All of our makeup is designed to work with ALL skin types, including for those with sensitive skin. If there is a certain ingredient in most makeup you are allergic to, speak with an Ulta Associate in store. You can find all of our ingredients listed on our packaging and an Associate will help to direct you.

    • Q:

      Hello. I am SO happy I found this offered at Ulta. I love NarS blushes and was actually about to purchase another single blush until I ran across this palette. I understand that the colors offered here are exclusive to this product, however I see in their descriptions that some of the basic shades are similar to some of the single blushes NARS makes. The only detail not named in the description is the finish of all the different shades. This is a deal breaker for me, unfortunately, despite the amazing deal this palette offers. Would you mind providing the finish specs (matte, shimmer and shade thereof for at least the blushes? Just trying to make a decision as to buying single blushes over this or not. I'd really appreciate it. )

        A:

        HI there! 3 of the blushes offered in this palette would be considered a silky matte which the 4th would be a rich shimmer.

    • Q:

      Does this product run risk of getting hard pan because I have seen in the past NARS product receiving mayor hard pan
      Asked on 6/26/2017 by girly girl from Eugene Oregon

      1 answer

      • Brand Expert

        A:

        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.

    • Q:

      Between this palette and the benefit cheek and bronzer parade palette which one would be a better deal and which do you recommend for light/ medium skin tone

      • Brand Expert

        A:

        Our NARSissist Cheek Palette is an amazing deal! It comes with everything you need to create natural looking, beautiful dimension and color on the face. You have all of your essentials in one place, bronzer, contour blush, and 4 blushes you cannot find anywhere else. I would definitely make sure to get this palette!

    • Q:

      Will the mirror in the front of the palette easily crack if dropped or scratch up easily ?
      Asked on 6/26/2017 by James from Orange County California

      1 answer

      • Brand Expert

        A:

        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.

    • Q:

      Do any of the colors in the pallet come individually? I want the pink on the bottom left, I have been looking for that EXACT color for awhile!!
      Asked on 2/8/2017 by Debbie from Santa Clarita, CA

      1 answer

      • Brand Expert

        A:

        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.

        A:

        NARS is the ultimate authority in Blush. The richly pigmented formula delivers healthy, beautiful color and is easily blendable for easy application. The Cheek Studio palette contains 4 beautiful shades (3 are limited edition you can't find anywhere else) along with our top selling Laguna Bronzing Powder, Paloma Contour Blush. You can create an entire look with just this palette!
