Nars One Night Stand Palette

I'm in love with you Nars 'Guy Bourdin' One Night Stand palette, I've noticed the last couple of posts I've written up have been about me declaring my love for several products but I think it's true, I always get carried away in the lead up to Christmas in a "Present for you, Present for me" kind of way, it's bad but I think one of the best things about being a grown up is buying whatever the hell you want to buy and as Christmas is the season of giving, why not give to yourself, this is how I had to justify buying this palette to myself. I felt bad about it at first but now after using it and appreciating it's loveliness, I'm so happy I did.

I do believe this is now sold out, so I am sorry for this, but there's potential for people to have this coming to them as Christmas presents so I thought I'd get my views out there. This was my first ever Nars product but after wanting to try the blushers out for, well, for a ling time, when I spotted this palette with 4 blushers, 1 bronzer and 1 highlighter, I knew I couldn't turn it down. The palette consists of 3 from Nars' classic range (Laguna, Deep Throat & Orgasm) and 3 limited edition shades (Devotee, Mistinguette and Goulue)

Laguna - A classic Nars product, this is a lovely matte bronzer that leaves a wash of colour without looking orange or muddy and without too much of a build up for a natural bronzed look.

Deep Throat - This is a deeper pink toned version of the Orgasm blush I think, with a more golden shimmer running through, very pretty and great for a night out.

Orgasm - Another classic Nars shade and my favourite from this palette, it leaves a lovely pinky peach wash of colour on cheeks with a hint of shimmer as well so that you get a glowy dewy look, probably not hugely winter appropriate but I love it none the less.

Mistinguette - This is one of the limited edition Guy Bourdin shades which is a bright, almost neon pink, and the first one I was attracted to, it reminds me of one of my favourite Sleek blushes 'Pixie Pink' which leaves a hint of pink across the cheeks and I will be using it a lot once Spring arrives.

Goulue - This was one of the shades that I didn't think I would end up using but I actually really like it, definitely good for winter and leaves a deep pink colour to cheeks, similar to Deep Throat but with more of a purple tone.

Devotee - A lovely golden highlighter, which has yellow and pink undertones, leaves a very glowy highlight that looks very natural.


I really do love this product and for the price, I think it was great to try out some of the Nars classic shades along with some new ones too. I love the packaging, it comes in the classic matte rubber packaging but with the Guy Bourdin logo as well and has a huge mirror in the lid so great for on the go touch ups. I haven't done swatches because to be honest, there are so many across the internet. I've been using this with my Real Techniques Blush Brush, which is just the tiniest bit too big for this palette but works none the less.

If you can get hold of this somehow, do it. Best £45 I have spent in a while.

What do you think of this palette?
