So the UPS man brought me lots of fun presents from Sephora today, one of them being the NARS Danmari blush palette.
Initial reaction: The outside packaging is so beautiful. This could be given as is for a gift! NARS never disappoints in the packaging department.
Anddd there's the palette! Do you guys ever have an anxiety attack when opening packages like this? Sometimes I wonder if anything will be inside. Or maybe I'm just paranoid. Haha!
Of course, here's the lovely palette itself, outside of the box. In a picture below I included a shot of it beside my iPhone 3 so you can compare. It's quite small, but the blushes inside are very deep.
And now of course, the part you've been waiting for... the blushes!!!!

I was rather disappointed at first at seeing how small these blushes are... exactly the size of a NARS eyeshadow. But they are each 0.12 grams of product (75% of the size of a regular NARS blush) so I assume they just run really deep. The only one I've tried so far was Orgasm, and I barely had to dip my brush in the powder to get enough pigment. Simply amazing! If you're like me and you've never tried NARS blushes before, this is a must have! It retails for $65 dollars at Sephora which may seem a bit pricey, but think about how much a regular NARS blush costs ($27!!!) You're getting 3/4 or 75% worth of the normal amount of product, which would still cost about $20 if you were able to buy it in that size. All six of these blushes would cost a whopping $120! So this is definitely worth the investment.
P.S. Until November 3, the Sephora Friends and Family sale is occurring, so go here: http://www.sephoralove.com/friendsandfamily to redeem a 20% off code. That would make this palette around $52 if you don't get anything else. Do yourself a favor, go pick this up!
I love you,
