Favorite Nars Palettes

So as I have mentioned in several blog posts before, Nars is my favorite high-end makeup brand.  I have lots of products in the line, and today I thought I would share with you my top 3 palettes from them.  Note, these were limited edition but you can still find them on eBay and Amazon.  Granted you might have to mortgage your house to afford them, but they are still available if you search hard enough.

1.  Nars Makeup Your Mind:  Express Yourself Eyes
2.  Nars Holiday Eye Shadow Palette 2008 #9947
3.  Nars Joie de Vivre #9977 All About Cheeks Palette

Before I discuss why these 3 palettes are my favorites, I must first talk about my all-time favorite products from Nars.  These palettes are my favorites because they each contain numerous favorites of mine.

Nars Kilimanjaro Duo is my favorite inner corner highlight shade of all time.  Especially the first shade in the palette, as you can see I've put quite the dent in it.

Nars Abyssinia is the perfect nudey-pink, shimmery, all over lid color.  I've hit pan, so you know it has to be pretty great!

Gaiety blush, my HG blush for sure.  The perfect pink to brighten up your cheeks for that healthy glow.  Nars knocked it out of the ballpark with this one.

Now, on to the palettes and what makes them so great.  This cheek palette by Nars was a Nordstrom exclusive, and is BY FAR the best cheek palette Nars has ever released.  It has all the standouts in it:  Albatross highlighter, Laguna bronzer, Orgasm, Angelika, Gaiety and Luster blushes.  Nars releases wonderful cheek palettes every year, but this one had the best shades EVER, in my opinion.  You can still find this on eBay, but it is the most $$$ cheek palette on there.

I was SO excited when I found this palette with the Kilimanjaro #1 shade!  This palette also has neutrals, shimmery lid colors, and bright shades for that perfect splash of color.  LOVE.

Perfection in a palette.  Abyssinia and Galapagos in one palette????  Not to mention the beautiful peacock blue from the Brumes duo (which also happens to be one of my favorites).  By far one of the best eyeshadow palettes in history.  The perfect shades for a pop of color:  purple, green, and blue.  The perfect eyelid color, a gorgeous shimmer and the perfect golden brown.  Pack this on your next trip and your possibilities are endless.  Could not love this more.

Alright guys, that's about it.  Hope you enjoyed this and maybe this gave you a couple of ideas for a Nars palette you are considering investing in.  Just because products are LE or no longer made does not mean you can't find them!  Keep an eye out and keep searching, eventually you will stumble upon what you want.  Thanks for stopping by!  Ciao!
