I searched high and low for the Nars Guy Bourdin One Night Stand Cheek Palette. It was sold out on the Nars and Space NK websites and I was on my 4th phone call to a local Space NK shop when the sale assistant said the magical words ‘ We have one left!‘ HOORAY! I literally jumped up and down on the spot for five minutes in excitement.
Upon collection, I was NOT disappointed. It is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.
Guy Bourdin’s spellbinding and cinematic narratives served as the apex of the sexually charged fashion photography of the ’70s—and François Nars’ first inspiration to become a makeup artist. Now, NARS celebrates Bourdin’s legacy with bold, uninhibited colour and high-impact finishes inspired by the audacious, high-fashion and decadent world of Guy Bourdin.This palette comes in a protective box featuring one of Bourdin’s colour striking saturated images. The palette has the traditional Nars insignia with a splash of red lipstick with Guy Bourdin embossed on the front. The packaging screams high fashion! Ooh la la!
0.14 oz x 6:
- Blush in Laguna (diffused brown powder with golden shimmer)
- Deep Throat (flirty, sheer peach)
- Orgasm (peachy pink with golden shimmer)
- Mistinguette (bright pink)
- Goulue (medium pink)
- Devotee (highlighter)
Great Value for Money
4 blushes, 1 bronzer and 1 highlighter palette for £45 in the UK.
Now, I realise that this palette is somewhat bitter-sweet for those of you who already own Laguna , Deep Throat or Orgasm as you are only getting more of the same. However for those of you who haven’t yet purchased any Nars blushers, this would be a great addition to your collection.
This is a versatile compact collection of Nars’ most popular blushes and bronzers. Everything you need to sculpt, highlight and enhance your cheeks. I am WELL CHUFFED with this!
At the time of writing, still available to buy at Sephora.
