From left to right, clockwise: Devotee, Mistinguette, Deep Throat, Goulue, Orgasm, Laguna.
Nars’ Orgasm, Deep Throat, Laguna blushes and bronzer have been cult beauty favourites for years. Despite their scandalous names and chic packaging, the colours are beautiful are raved about on the daily.So, when I saw the Limited Edition Guy Bourdin ‘One Night Stand’ Blush Palette, which come with these three iconic shades along with three limited edition hues, I was sold. They’re just short of full-size and for $72, it’s well worth it (but pricey nonetheless).

If you’re unfimiliar with the inspiration himself, Guy Bourdin is an award-winning French photographer who shot for Italian, British and French Vogue, Chanel, Issey Miyake, among others. Let’s just say that the pair of Nars’ sexy names and Guy’s photos are a perfect match. Ya, enough said.

The highlighter, Devotee is easily my favourite of the palette. I’m not a fan of liquid highlighters, so this powder gives my skin a beautiful, long-lasting sheen that works on my oilier skin. The bright bubblegum pink, titled Mistinguette, gives a surprisingly very natural looking flush on my pale skin–almost that ‘I’ve been outside too long in the cold’ look, minus the crabby attitude and chapped lips. Deep Throat and Orgasm are both peachy shades (meant to replicate the natural blush you get after… well). Orgasm is blended with gold shimmer, but both give natural, sheer pigmentation. Laguna, is perfect for a non-orangey contour and to warm up your complexion. Goulue is a deep berry shade that is ultra-glam and would look amazing on so many skin tones. There are literally no flaws in this palette, so pick one up before they’re gone!
