Palettes -NARS -NARSissist Wanted Cheek Palette Vol II


I won't repeat my reasons to purchase or the joy that this and the other items of the Wanted collection brings, nor any descriptions about the palette, please see my review of the other cheek palette for that stuff. I pretty much got this because there's two palettes in the collection and I would be forever lemming to complete the pair.
This palette is aimed towards those with darker complexions, with darker tones and a bit more richly pigmented. I'll admit I haven't really gotten "into" this palette because I only need to touch my brush to the pan to pick up some color, and have to be light handed and use caution when applying it so I don't have an obvious spot of color. Not good for my fair to light skin tone if I'm not paying attention to what I'm doing, which is most days.
I think this is a good choice for anyone looking for a curated collection of fresh, bright blushes to get more shades in a skimpy collection. From my POV with fair light skin tone, this will fill the desire to play with and wear bold colors. I can see myself reaching for this more so the evening or on days when I just want a bright pop of color. And again, just like the vol I one, it works well as an eyeshadow, I think the few full faced looks I’ve seen using this are simplistically beautiful and fresh.

Palettes -NARS -NARSissist Wanted Cheek Palette Vol I


I am absolutely head over heels in love with the wanted eye palette and just had to have this!
The palette itself is very similar to its little sister Wanted eye palette, slightly smaller in size than the cheek studio palette (the only one I can compare it to, I fear I missed out for good on the unfiltered II cheek palette that would IMO be best.) A little tricky to open as well, just like the eye palette. At a total net weight of 0.78 oz., it is still under $1.00 US per 1/100 of an ounce, and less expensive per pan than a NARS blush single. No outer mirror to collect fingerprints, I plan to store it in the box to keep the (printed-on?) graphics looking new.
Aimed towards fairer skin tones, all of the shades apply slightly sheer but are definitely more pigmented than the cheek studio palette blushes and look fresh. Even the brightest/most intense shade, crave, a matte bright coral looks pretty (I use foundations fair-light). I have used shade "crave" on my cheeks and using shade "buzzed", a "matte coral" as an eyeshadow, a look inspired by reviewers of the unfiltered palettes where they did a full face with the palette, and like it so much that I plan to do this more often. If I were to pick a least favorite, it would be the shade unlimited, a shimmery pale pink - I already have similar (think Becca). I have been liking NARS' blusher formulas found in this and the cheek studio palette because they never apply poorly on my dry skin or clash with the dewey look I can't avoid no matter what kind of foundation I try due to the heavy skin creams I use.
I think this would be nice for anyone who doesn't have a lot of blushers and are looking for a nicely packaged grouping of shades to add to their collection. I have fallen victim to the recent trend of warm palettes and think this is the answer to my need to find complimentary blush shades.

Lipstick -NARS -Dolce Vita


So expensive for a lipstick that does nothing except even out your lip color. Very sheer and no color pay off. If you want a lipstick that people cannot tell you are wearing lipstick, go for it but there are better alternatives out there.

Concealers -NARS -Radiant Creamy Concealer

I bought this concealer because it is considered the best concealer around for dark circles... I have fair-medium skin and I bought the Vanilla tone, which was the one recommended by the Sephora SA.

Well, I have very dark circles and very dry under eye area. So, regarding this concealer:

- Very moisturizing, does not make the under eye area feel dry
- Full coverage

- It is very thick and oily
- IT CREASES LIKE HELL. Even with a good translucent powder , it still creases, because it has a VERY thick formula.
- Color is too off - Vanilla is definitely not my tone but Honey looks too yellowish for me
- ridiculous packaging - 100% waste! How am I going to use the concealer to the last drop with this packaging? It's too expensive for so much waste!
- Too expensive, can't get the vibe

Anyway, it's a good concealer because it's not dry and it gives full coverage, but it's definitely not good for the under eye area. Because it's too thick, it creases a lot. And the packaging is horrible, we can't use the concealer to the last drop. I'm definitely NOT buying another one.

This is my go to blush it looks great in all skin tones very natural and pretty. Nars claims this blush brighten and rejuvenates skin this is a understatement. This blush is the perfect shade!
