However, you might think that you already have it all in your Holiday 2018 Nars Hot Tryst Cheek Palette. For one thing, Hot Tryst has a rich, pigmented formula that creates intense looks. On the other hand, the new Exposed Cheek Palette has a newer formula that creates a subtle wash of color. Although, when you build up the pigments, you can create high impact, multidimensional looks. Additionally, two of the Exposed Blush shades might be similar to two of the Hot Tryst shades. However, they are not the same.
One thing for sure, you have more options with the Exposed Cheek Palette. First, you can use the shades wet or dry. Next, you can create high impact , glowing looks. Or, you can create multidimensional looks. All you need to do is layer and build the colors.
Nars Exposed Cheek Palette Packaging
Don’t you just love the Nars Packaging? First, the pink and orange waves are the theme palette. This is just on the outer packaging. Next, the heavy duty plastic makes the compact really sturdy.
Furthermore, poured plastic creates the feeling of rippling waves on the cover of the palette.
In addition, the compact has a lock and clasp closure. As a result, it is difficult to snap open. However, that is always a good thing because it protects whatever is inside the palette. Inside, there is a full mirror on one side, and six large pans on the other. One of the shades is a highlighter. The other five shades are blush.
Nars always puts beautiful touches on all of their packaging. As a result, it makes me want the palette before I know what’s inside! Also, every time I reach for the palette, it makes putting on makeup that much more fun!
Nars Exposed Cheek Palette Formula
First of all, the formula is unique. First, Nars Color Clarity Complex encapsulates powdered pigments in a clear base. As a result, the formula delivers a sheer wash of color. In this way, you can build up the pigments. In addition, the pigments, worn wet, give you a high impact glow. The pigments worn dry give you a sheer blush look. In fact your blush will look like a watercolor. Moreover, the blush has a creamy texture that feels silky. Furthermore, you can build, layer and blend the blush. In addition, there is pearl in the blush that adds more dimension so you don’t look flat.
Nars Exposed Cheek Palette Shades
To begin with, the Nars Exposed Cheek Palette includes six shades. One shade is a highlighter, the other five are blush.
First, Tell All, a golden pink shade, has a pearlescent finish. Tell All is a highlighter. Therefore, you can use it on the high points of your face, your cheekbones, down the center of your nose, on your brow bones, and on the inner corners of your eyes. In fact, use Tell all anywhere you want to highlight.
Now or Never
Now or Never, a terracotta shade, has a satin finish. You can wear terracotta as a neutral shade on the apples of your cheeks. Then, I would carry the blush up to the temples. Also, use Now or Never on your eye lids, or in your crease to give you more definition.
Give It Away
Give it Away, a nude shade, has a satin finish. First, I love Give it Away as a contour for your cheeks. Therefore, wear this nude shade under your cheek bones to give your face definition. Also, you can wear Give it Away as a blush on the apples of your cheeks, and carry it up to your temples. Furthermore, use it in the crease of your eyes and on your lower lash lines to give your eyes definition. Furthermore, create definition under your cheekbone and up along your hairline. I love wearing it on my cheeks, and my eyes, to create a monochromatic look.
Make You Mine
Make You Mine, a peach shade, has a satin finish. Additionally, Make You Mine is a bright shade that looks great as a blush on the apples of your cheeks. Also, I would wear this shade above the crease shade on my eyes, to add a pop of color.
Come Hither, a watermelon shade, has a satin finish. In addition, Come Hither looks amazing as a blush on the apples of your cheeks. I also like this watermelon shade above your crease color, on the outer part of your eye.
New Fling, a fuchsia shade, has a satin finish. Also, New Fling looks amazing on the apples of your cheeks. I also like it on the eyelids, and you could use it to line your lower lash lines, mixed with another color.
Nars Exposed Cheek Palette Last But Not Least…..
This is not your typical, pigmented Nars Palette. So, you may have to do some prep work to warm up the palette. For example, you’ll get this “party started’ by swirling your brush around ,on the surface of the pan, to soften the powder.. As a result, you will rev up the powder to ignite the color. Moreover, the shades do become more pigmented after they have been used a few times. For high intensity looks use a Pro Sculpting Brush. However, if you want a sheer look, use a classic angled brush. Make sure your brushes are stiffer and more dense than a typical blush brush!
CUSTOM YOUR BLUSH SHADE AND HIGHLIGHTER SHADE
Also, you can customize your colors when you layer different shades, separately. On the other hand, if you want a watercolor look, then mist your brush with water before applying the color.
Do you want a custom highlight ? Then blend Tell All, Now or Never and Give It Away together for a customized highlight. In addition, if you want a pop of color on your cheeks, then mix Make You Mine with Come Hither and New Fling and apply the new color to the apples of your cheeks.
Above all, the buildable, baked formula can be layered or dampened for more intensity. I love the fact that these powders were made to be manipulated. Now, that is the fun part of the palette!
