NARS Foreplay Orgasm Palette Review

Hey lovelies! 
I bought this limited edition NARS palette in a blog sale recently and it's so beautiful that I just had to share it with you! Never one for subtle names, this palette is called Foreplay and is inspired by the famous Orgasm blush. 

I'm relatively new to NARS products, I only own the Laguna bronzer and the Orgasm illuminator, but i've wanted to try out a NARS blush for ages and had heard a lot about the Orgasm blush. Therefore, when I saw this lovely palette I thought it would be a great way to try a few different colours out. 

The packaging is lovely, the rubberised case looks very sleek and high end, but unfortunately I doubt it will stay this way for long as NARS packaging gets dirty very quickly! 

The individual colours do not have names, but there is a dark peach shade (1), a golden highlighter (2), a matte fuchsia pink (3) and Orgasm (4), which is compiled of all of these different aspects, therefore creating a peachy pink with hints of golden shimmer. I have read reviews online however which have claimed that the Orgasm shade in this palette differs slightly to the original Orgasm, but as I don't own it I can't really comment on this. Nonetheless, I am glad it is the biggest shade in this palette as on me it shows up as a beautiful pink/rose gold colour. That said, the two matte colours are also lovely and are the most pigmented. I actually think that the golden colour would double up as a great brow bone highlight too, so this is a really versatile little palette. 

The only major downside I would say this palette has is that the highlight colour in particular is extremely small, which makes applying it with a big brush quite tricky. Also, if you fall in love with any of these shades (excluding Orgasm), you can't repurchase them outside of this palette, which is slightly irritating as they're so lovely!

Overall, I love this palette and I think it is a great way of trying out the formulation of NARS blushes without having to invest in four different products. All of the blushes have a silky soft texture which makes applying and blending them into the skin really easy and results in a very natural looking finish. The compact packaging makes it ideal for travelling and the blushes themselves are really beautiful and I can tell I am going to get a lot of use out of this palette!
