NARS Killing Me Softly Cheek Palette

Orgasm Makes an Appearance in the NARS Killing Me Softly Palette

Clockwise from the peach pan on the left: Gilda (a coral with a hint of red), Albatross (a luminous glow), Orgasm (a peachy pink with golden shimmer) and Outlaw (a soft rose with golden shimmer)

In case you were worried that NARS wasn’t going to release a blush palette that didn’t include Orgasm, you can now wipe the sweat from your brow.


Wait — was that a double negative? I kind of confused myself there…


Killing Me Softy, one of two new blush palettes for fall, does include the cult classic peachy gold blush, along with three other shades for highlighting and contouring. There’s Gilda (a coral with a hint of red), Albatross (a luminous gold) and Outlaw (a soft rose with golden shimmer).

Overall, the palette leans quite warm, so if you wear toasty peaches, golds, corals and red shades well, you might want to take a closer look.

It arrives at NARS counters, boutiques and online September 1.

    oh, I think this one is even more beautiful than the previous one! It will be a hard choice…

      Hi Agata,

      They’re both great! But I think for you I’d go with Adult Content. I think you could rock all those colors pretty hard. πŸ™‚ You could also do this one, but you may have to spend a little more time diluting and blending because a couple of the shades are so intense, ya know?

      • Agata says:

        Actually you’re right. I was comparing your swatches of both palettes and I agree that the Adult Content would work better for me. I cannot wait till the palettes are available. You know my blush obsession has no boundaries, lol.

    WHAT how are all my favourite NARS blushes and highlighter all in one place, this was made for me!

    Super pretty! But I think I’m going with the Adult Content palette. It speaks to me πŸ˜€

      Hi Alison,

      I brought that one down to LA with me. I’m loving it so far! It really does have everything you need for travel (contouring, blush, highlighter). πŸ™‚

      Have a nice Thursday!

    I don’t need this… I don’t need this… I don’t need this. Sadly, that’s not helping at all. I hope I can forget about it because, otherwise, there’s a .01% chance I won’t buy it. And I really *don’t* need it. πŸ™‚

    How is the beach? Any massive muscle sightings? Btw, sorry for all the ellipses. I know they drive you crazy!

    • Karen says:

      Hey Kim,

      LOL… they’re… driving… me… nuts…

      SO, I went down to beach this morning and it was overcast and cold! No muscle bound dudes, just lots of surfers and runners.

      • Kim says:

        HAHA! I read a funny article on their overuse (blame texting and social media) and thought of you.

        I’m sorry you hit the cold, overcast weather. It’s so disappointing when that happens. On the bright side, I really liked your pics of the street art, though.

  6. I like this so much more than the Adult Content palette! Now I have to find a way to get my hands on this, NARS doesn’t retail in India unfortunately!

    Well, hmm…. I usually avoid palettes with Orgasm, as I already have a couple. This is tempting, though…

  9. Phyrra says:

    It’s beautiful but I wish they’d skipped Orgasm.

    WOW!!!! Love the palette, would love to get my hands on it, but NARS is not available here in Croatia!! :/

  11. M says:

    I LOVE that palette! The mix of coral, pink, and berry will make a beautiful shade. My wallet is already crying…..

  12. Allison says:

    I love that blush palette. And don’t laugh, I am one of the few women on earth who doesn’t own Orgasm, though I always meant to! I have red hair and usually gravitate toward warm shades so this palette has my name on it. Now, I’ve got a month to save up πŸ™‚

    Both palettes look amazing…I don’t know which one I’m going to go for. Which one looks better with your skin tone, this or adult content?
