A One Night Stand With the NARS One Night Stand Cheek Palette

Published in: NARS, Palettes, Product Reviews

Filed under “Conversations I Have With My Pan of NARS DOLCE VITA Blush”:

ME: We have to talk.


NARS DOLCE VITA: OK. About what?

ME: Our relationship.

NARS DOLCE VITA: Alright, that was ominous… Should I sit down?

ME: If you want.

NARS DOLCE VITA: Are you breaking up with me? Is this a breakup?

ME: Oh, gosh, no! I still think we should see each other. It’s just… I dunno. I need more…


ME: No! Excitement. I was going to say “excitement.”

NARS DOLCE VITA: So what — are you a swinger now? You want to start seeing other blushes?

ME: No. I mean, I want to stay together, but it’s been 12 years. I just think we should…re-evaluate our status. Maybe switch to something more fluid? Like an open relationship?

NARS One Night StandNARS DOLCE VITA: Oh, I get it. Open. OK, just don’t tell me about your one night stands.

ME: Not even the one I’m having right now with the new NARS One Night Stand cheek palette?

NARS DOLCE VITA: Wait — what? Are you? Is he that limited edition holiday palette?

ME: Yes. Six blushes total, and three of them are new.


ME: I actually think you two would get along.

NARS DOLCE VITA: Right! So, tell me about him.

ME: Well, the new ones are shimmery alabaster Devotee Highlighting Blush, bright pink Mistinguette Blush and fleshy pink Goulue. You already know the others — golden brown Laguna Bronzer, golden peach Orgasm and sheer peach Deep Throat.

NARS DOLCE VITA: Do you…love this palette?

ME: I don’t know. I mean, I probably would if all of its shades were new. I do really like the highlighting blush. It reminds me of NARS Albatross, only more pinkish beige? If I could have it in a single…

NARS DOLCE VITA: OK, stop. Fine, I’m willing to try. If this means that much to you, we can try sharing, but I’m not making any promises.

Happy Halloween!

With Halloween costumes, as in life, you gotta be flexible.

The plan was for Tabs to wear his Princess Leia headpiece this year, but he wasn’t having any of it when I tried to put it on him this morning.

Observe the claws…

Oh hell no, woman!

Oh, hell no, woman!

Divas, ya know? You can’t live with them, can’t live without ’em.


Eventually, he decided to revisit one of his classic couture Halloween costumes, the evil Shark Cat…

On the prowl for gravy and treats…it’s the SHARK CAT!

While I am currently dressed up as an exhausted pet assistant. πŸ™‚

Have you seen any cool costumes yet?

    I LOVE this palette, I wish it wasn’t that expensive!

    Happy Halloween. I am not dressing up this year, no party to go to. It’s raining here so probably we won’t get many trick or treaters either.

  2. Ava says:

    Yay! The One night stand palette! Thanks for posting up the swatches! I think I’m NOT going to get any palette and just buy the individual shades of outlaw and albatross. I’ve got enough lagunas and orgasms πŸ˜‰ and I’m content with my Danmari and Foreplay palettes. I’ll stick with the promiscuous lip set. Thanks Karen! I appreciate it πŸ™‚
    PS: Tabs is too freaking cute! Happy Halloween!

  3. ki. says:

    I only like the last blush a lot – the rest are just okay, especially for my skintone. Tabs is looking adorable! What a cool costume idea πŸ˜€

  4. Jess Scull says:

    I am SO glad I bought this with my 20% off F&F discount at Sephora!

  5. not even know where to start Karen! if I speak this beautiful palette of blushes nars or Tabs shark

    Loved the dolce vita, I’m wishing for this palette yesterday

    You’re always in the pictures diva love it!

    Happy halloween my Tabs loves you most is the cat chick I know!


  6. Ha! Oh, Karen πŸ˜€ Sorry to hear how upset Dolce Vita is with you, but it really sounds like you have something with this new palette! You never know; could be love πŸ˜›

    That palette looks FABULOUS!!! And the post was hilarious! Dolce Vita is kind of a sassafras! πŸ˜‰ I actually don’t own any NARS blushes, but having recently splurged on a bunch of Tarte blushes, I don’t know how much more blush I can justify buying! πŸ˜› And Tabs makes the CUTEST shark cat!

  8. Chaitra says:

    Karen, how do like the orgasm blush? Does it work well for u?

    Very pretty look as always, and I love your “conversation”, haha! I’m very happy to be skipping this palette, I hate Orgasm, have enough Deep throat and Laguna to last me the rest of my life, the reddy-plum blush looks exactly like Outlaw, and I would never wear a pinky highlighter or a baby pink blush. Wallet happy!!

  10. Denise S. says:

    Love Nars blushes and the idea of this palette ,but I own at least 2 laguna bronzers,deep throat and orgasm blushes already. And the new shades are too light for me. I’m wearing my black Happy Halloween (written in orange sparkles) tee shirt that I got from Target a few years back and black jeans. My neighborhood usually gets plenty of trick or treaters. Got 3 big bags of Reeses peanut cups and Hershey bars to give away, don’t want o get stuck with them. Happy Halloween!

  11. Ruchita says:

    I don’t have any NARS blushes, so this might be a good palette to try.

    That pic of Tabs is so cute! It makes me giggle every time I see it. I didn’t get costumes for the kitties this year, but I have some ideas for next time.

    I think I could get Mingy into a shark costume like that b/c it fits like his walking harness. Ella is, um, somewhat rotund, so she could be a pumpkin. Since Nina is a black cat, she’s dressed up for Halloween year round. I would like to get her one of those collars that is like a shirt and tie so she can be a serious, business cat.

    And thus concludes the ramblings of a crazy cat lady. πŸ™‚ Happy Halloween!

    I was so excited when I first found out about this palette but now that I have it I’m not so excited about it anymore. I’m actually returning it! While Devotee and Goulou are beautiful I have dupes and none of the other shades really work for women with deeper skin tones. Mistinguette and Deep Throat are too pale. Laguna and Orgasm are too subtle. Luckily, I’ve tracked down a Danmari palette for cheap. Can’t wait to get my hands on it!

    I love this palette! The shades are really versatile.

  14. Sylvia says:

    I’m with ya that NARS needs to start including some more new or not as popular colours in their blush palettes.

    I love that picture of Tabs’ claws, hilarious!

    Tabs is the cutest shark ever!

    Happy Halloween!

  16. Natalie says:

    I wish all the shades were new. Having orgasm and deep throat in this palette makes it less appealing for me. It looks really pretty though, especially if someone is new to NARS!

    You look absolutely stunning, Karen.. your skin looks so clear and beautiful! What else are you wearing in this look? Foundation wise and whatnot!

  19. yelena says:

    happy Halloween Karen! tabs is hilarious with his vicious claws! <3

  20. Jennifer says:

    Hi Karen! You look gorgeous! To reiterate the question: what foundation are you wearing in this photo?

  21. Elle says:

    That pic of Tabs cracked me up!

    I already own half of the blushes in this palette…I think I might have to pass. If I only had two of these blushes, I’d reconsider. Sigh…beautiful though.

  22. Kimberly says:

    Love! Thanks for swatches! I’m trying to decided either this palette or tarte’s cuff blush palette!
