This is the 1st time one of the Nars face palettes have been 100% for me (I do have previous ones, but none of them like this).
The blush tones are gorgeous & pigmented. You can mix them, use the darkest as contour (if you're fairer skin tone); they give the skin a lovely flushed looked. I'm medium Tan skin (think Halle Berry, a smidge fairer) and these shades show up on me.
The highlighters really give a "glow from within" look to your skin. I either use a sponge to apply or my Sephora highlighter brush (similar to the ABH one but I adore the Sephora one more).
I don't regret this purchase at all & am very happy that I got this; I've been using this everyday since purchased (this is another workhorse face palette, just like the Hourglass Edit palette).
For reference, my winter shades are NARS Syracuse / TF BTW in Honey / EL Double Wear in 4W2 / Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk in shade 8
Summer shade from above brands in Tahoe / Caramel / 5N1 or 5N2 /shade #9
