I hope you have all had a lovely Christmas week and are looking forward to the New Year.
Today I wanted to talk about the NARS Guy Bourdin Crime of Passion Eye Cheek and Lip Palette that I very gratefully received this Christmas.
The palette includes a lipgloss, three eyeshadows, a blush and a bronzer, so is really handy as everything that you need is in one palette.
The Eyeshadows: The palette comes with 3 beautiful eyeshadows that create a really lovely wearable look. The first shade is Naiade, a shimmery champagne shade that is beautiful for an 'all over the lid' colour. Next is Jezebel, a shimmery warm sable shade that is perfect for a crease colour as it helps to add definition and depth to the eyes. Lastly is Pandora, a matte black that is great for a soft liner colour or for a smokey eye if used in the crease. Naiade and Jezebel are both limited edition shades, but overall the quality of all the eyeshadows is excellent. They apply and blend really easily, are very pigmented and last really well throughout the day.
You then flip up the eyeshadows to reveal the blusher and bronzer.
The Blush: The blush in the palette is NARS's infamous Deep Throat blush. It is a pretty shimmery pink/peach shade that adds a pop of colour to the cheeks. It is very wearable and also lasts really well throughout the day.
The Bronzer: The bronzer in the palette is Laguna, a product that I have always wanted to try but have always thought it would be too dark or orange for my fair skin. However, since using the palette Laguna has quickly become one of my favourite parts of it as it isn't too dark or orange, and actually blends into the skin really well to leave a beautiful bronzed look. It is a warm bronzy colour with golden shimmer running throughout it, and I like to wear it by blending it just under my cheekbones to slightly contour the face and add colour.
The Lipgloss: The mini lipgloss in the palette is in the colour Deep Throat, so similar to the blush it is a pretty shimmery pink. Although this lipgloss is slightly sticky, it still leaves a beautiful colour to the lips and lasts really well throughout the day, even through eating and drinking.
Overall I absolutely adore this palette. It is so handy as it has almost everything you need to create a really lovely look, and I find all of the products in it are excellent quality.
If you would like to see the palette in action, I used it here for my Christmas makeup.
The Crime of Passion palette is limited edition, so I would definitely recommend trying to pick this up as soon as possible.
Let me know if you have tried any of the NARS Guy Bourdin products!
Thank you for reading and Happy New Year!
