Product Rant or Rave; NARS Realm of the Senses Cheek Palette

So I finally got my hands on this palette and have used it a few times and I would have to say this is a definite RAVE! [PURCHASED]

I couldn't justify spending $82.00 for both so I had to choose one or the other maybe if I like how this performs, I would bite the bullet and get the other one to add to my plethora of blushes :-]

The two palettes, Realm of the Senses and Soulshine,  was exclusively released at sephora and retails at about $41.00 each. The palette is the size  of their pressed powder container, with .42 oz of product in it.

This palette’s powders are much more shimmery than what I am used to, I usually prefer a matte blush but it can definitely be used as a bold highlight. I wouldn't suggest this for a mature skin as it will only accentuate lines as it will draw light to it with it's shimmers.

I personally love the engraved logo on the product and I though it was rather artsy :) Palette contains 3 shades, sheer peach, bronzed rose and sparkling golden sand and an over-spray within the engraving.
Interesting enough, the texture of the palette is much softer, almost buttery than your typical NARS blush.
One thing I did notice is the fallout when using a regular sized brush to extract product from the pan, I would suggest using a smaller and really soft blush brush to apply to reduce fall-out. Very well-pigmented formula, as expected, and it blends out easily. It also did last fairly long, about 8 hours on my combination skin and probably had lasted a lot longer if I stayed indoors but sadly, I had to run a few errands while testing this and it was the week when it was smoldering hot here in SoCal so it kinda faded a bit towards the 9th hour mark. Other than that it was beautiful and complementary to mostly fair-olive skin tone, Deep toned and beyond I would use it as a beautiful highlight.

Overall, I am quiet pleased with this purchase and will be using the heck out of it :)
