:: NARS Joie De Vivre Nordstrom Exclusive Cheek Palette ::

Happy Thursday!!! Yesterday (July 11, 2012) Nordstrom had a early access  Anniversary sale for card holders.This was my first attending one. As I was was looking through the catalog I went straight to the makeup section and came across a NARS Cheek Palette. Now NARS came out with one exclusively for Sephora as well, but IMO I think this Nordstrom exclusive was much better due to color combination. The palette comes with six colors and is priced at $65 US.

This is a comparison of a regular sized NARS blush...
The palette has a total of 3.5 g and one blush contains 4.8g just for reference! =)

This palette is perfect for Makeup Artists especially how all the colors you need are all in one palette!
If you are a Nordstrom cardholder grab one before it's gone! =)
Thanks so much for stopping by!!
