Nars Cosmetics recently collaborated with Steven Klein and brought out a range of limited edition products, one of them being the One Shocking Moment Studio Cheek Palette.
As soon as I seen this palette I knew I needed it in my collection! Nars bronzers are highly raved about and the blushes looked absolutely stunning. Nars describe this product as a palette which encases seven shades to add depth, dimension and a pretty flush of colour to the face.
The palette is packed in a very sturdy case with a trendy cover and also a full size mirror on the inside which I am a huge fan of! Definitely feels and looks like a high quality product.
The palette includes; Paloma contour kit, Laguna bronzing powder, 2 limited edition blushes in Robotic and Blashphemy, and Luster and Dolce Vita blush.
All of the products are highly pigmented and have a great colour payoff! The Paloma contour kit works well on all skin tones and has been heavily used in my freelance MUA kit recently but make sure you apply the contour shade with a light hand and blend well! The highlight shade is matte and can be used to sharpen your contour or to set your under eye concealer. The Laguna bronzer is amazing, so blendable and the colour is very build-able as well. You are able to go for a more natural light bronzed look or a dramatic bronzed looked. This bronzer also works great on all skin tones!
The blushes all have a slight shimmer in them so they give your skin a nice glow along with a beautiful flush of colour. I am obsessed with the limited edition shades; Robotic and Blashphemy and have been using them regularly. They give you a natural and really pretty flush of colour without being too over the top. Luster is perfect for a more neutral bronzed look as it adds minimal colour, but still gives a glowing youthful appearance. Dolce Vita blush suits more medium skin tones as its a darker plum blush, I don’t normally reach for colours like this but was pleasantly surprised, it is perfect for a dramatic nigh time look! All the blushes apply like a dream and are so easy to work with. Also you can mix the colours together as well to create a custom blush.
Nars One Shocking Moment Palette RRP: $100.00 AUD and I purchased mine from MECCA. I am obsessed with this palette and cant stop using it on myself and all my clients. It is so versatile and worth every dollar, I recommend checking it out. Perfect for beginners and perfect for MUA’s 🙂
I hope you have enjoyed this post and if you own this palette let me know your thoughts in the comments!
