{Review} NARS Foreplay Cheek Palette

Hi beauties, I hope life is treating you all well! Here is the review of the NARS Foreplay Cheek Palette I promised last week. 

This cheek platte is a deconstruction of NARS' best selling shade: Orgasm. In it, you will find a matte rosy peach (which reminds me of Amour), a matte hot pink, a shimmery golden yellow, and Orgasm itself.

PROS
- compact / easy to travel with
- great way to mix colors

CONS
- depending on the brush, it may be hard to dip into some colors (specifically all shades but Orgasm)
- the texture is a little off than their usual blushes - I find that it sits on skin rather than blend in upon application
- it will require a little work to make it look natural
- expensive for what we actually get

This palette was a lot smaller than I expected. Like I mentioned above, it may be harder to dip into most colors depending on what brush you use. I really like the idea of this palette, but I think it was poorly constructed. Don't get me wrong, I adore these shades and I still use this palette on a regular basis, but that doesn't mean I don't feel ripped off for what I paid ($49)!

If you've always wanted to try Orgasm and don't own any NARS blushes, this palette might be a good choice since you'll be able to mix it up. Otherwise, you're better off buying 2 regular-sized blushes for only $7 more.

And that would be it for my review. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I was at Sephora the other day and really wanted this palette for the colours, but I was concerned about how the brush would fit too! It's so pretty though! Thanks for the review!

  2. the colors are really pretty! I always look at nars product, but i just can't spend so much money on one small pallette.

  3. I've never given NARS a try but after seeing Orgasm swatched, I think I should be a little more open minded! Really lovely palette, esp. Orgasm and that golden yellow shade. :-)

    1. Thanks, Carol! If you decide to pick up some NARS blushes, be sure to check out Deep Throat! It's one of my favorites. =)

  6. Love the blogs name! I'm studying psychology+blush freak hehe.

    this mini nars palette looks lovely..it caught my eye but I already have Orgasm so it's a bit pointless to buy another one.
