NARS Motu Tapu Face Palette

NARS recently launched a new limited-edition face palette! Available exclusively at Nordstrom, the Motu Tapu Face Palette contains everything you need for that sunkissed look; a blush, an highlighter and a bronzing powder.

I love the highlighter (Moana), it's such a beautiful color and the finish is so smooth (not chunky at all). The formula feels buttery smooth and this color is very pigmented so a little bit goes a long way!

I noticed that the bronzer (Casino) is less pigmented than the original Casino bronzing powder. I love sheer and buildable color when it comes to blushes and bronzers, but it might be too sheer for darker skin tones.

This shade is too warm for me when my skin is at its palest, but it's a great color when I'm tan. I usually prefer bronzers with a matte or satin finish though, and although it doesn't contain glitters (Thank god!), I wish it was less shimmery.

The blush (Bounty) isn't extremely pigmented either, but the color is buildable. I'm not a huge fan of coral peach blushes on my pale skin, but this color is very pretty on medium to tan skin tones! It's not my favorite NARS blush in term of formula, but the golden sheen is stunning and the staying power is top notch. Speaking of which, all the colors last all day on me (more than 12 hours)!

It's a beautiful palette for medium skin tones, if you love sheer blushes and bronzers!
