NARS | Guy Bourdin One Night Stand

First, there was the Danmari blush palette that sold like super hot hotcakes. Now, NARS bring to us another stellar blush palette in collaboration with Guy Bourdin. Sure, I'm sad I missed out on the Danmari, but the NARS One Night Stand palette is exponentially better. Buckle your seat belts because this is going to be a rave review like you won't believe! One Night Stand is a cheek palette that's got you covered with 0.14 oz of four blushers, a bronzer, and a highlighter.
  • Devotee Highlighter (highlight glow)
  • Mistinguette Blush (bubblegum pink)
  • Deep Throat Blush (flirty sheer peach)
  • Laguna Bronzer (diffused brown with golden shimmer)
  • Orgasm (peachy pink with gold shimmer)
  • Goulue Blush (medium pink)
A regular sized NARS blush will run you $29 for 0.16 oz. This cheek palette costs $65 and each pan carries just 0.02 oz less product, but let's be real, how many blushes have you hit pan on? I know I haven't yet, haha! So you get six cheek products for the price of about three which in my eyes is such a steal! The pigmentation of these is not even a topic of discussion- it's amazing. Just enough pigmentation to leave you with the desired color on your cheeks without being able to go over board. The texture is very smooth, finely milled and not at all chalky. You get a nice variety of colors so it doesn't feel like the shades are overly similar. In the Danmari palette they had Orgasm and Super Orgasm which, who really needs both? My favorite is Mistinguette, which is such a lovely bright yet pale cheek color. It makes no sense until you see it on, haha. The packaging, as always with NARS, is the classic black with rubberized case and the large NARS letters with a splash of red to display 'Guy Bourdin's' name. Absolutely love, love, LOVE it. The packaging will no doubt get a bit dirty in time, but I quite like it, shows a bit of love <3 The whole One Night Stand palette is a just a smidge smaller than the whole of my hand, but it'd be perfect for traveling and has seriously got you covered for any event your cheeks may attend, haha. 

So, final verdict? I think it's a great palette overall! You're getting a great array of shades, with stellar pigmentation, for an amazing price. It's something that should be on every beauty junkie's wishlist, I think. This would also make a great gift for any makeup/cheek product crazed person on your list! If you can get your hands on it, I'd say go for it, without hesitation. I can almost guarantee you'll be sorry if you didn't!
What do you think of the One Night Stand palette? Has it made your Holiday wishlist?
