NARS Unfiltered I Cheek Palette

Unfiltered I

NARS Unfiltered I Cheek Palette ($59.00 for 0.72 oz.) includes six powder blushes. It’s a new, limited edition palette for spring, which should officially release soon. There is another palette–Unfiltered II–which features cooler, softer shades and leans pinker overall, while this one is bolder, richer, and warmer across the board. I think there’s a good mix of finishes, lights and darks, and like the addition of one cooler shade that still makes sense with the other shades.

Watch Me

Watch Me is a light, golden beige with warm, yellow undertones and a fine, pearly sheen. The consistency was soft, lightly dusty, so it was more prone to sheering out (which made it easy to blend, though!). It had semi-opaque pigmentation that sat well on the skin, as it did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture. This shade lasted for eight hours on me.

Me First

Me First is a bright, medium orange with warm, red undertones and a fine, golden sheen. It had good color payoff that was nearly opaque and easily built-up to full coverage with just a touch more product. The powder had a finely-milled, smooth, and firmer texture, but it wasn’t difficult to get product onto the brush or to blend out on the skin. It started to fade after eight hours on me.

Takeover

Takeover is a muted, medium brown with warm, reddish brown undertones and a frosted finish. The consistency was soft, a touch loose in the pan, but it had more body to it than a lot of NARS’ blushes (which I find thinner), which made it easier to work with, blend out, and yielded better color payoff–completely opaque with little product. This shade lasted for just over eight and a half hours on me.

Out There

Out There is a muted, medium-dark pink with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had a thinner consistency that kicked up some excess product in the pan and had a tendency to apply unevenly to skin–I felt like the natural oils on my skin would capture the blush and make it harder to blend/diffuse the color out. The product was workable, but it definitely took a couple of minute to diffuse enough that it looked mostly blended and even to my eye. This blush lasted for eight and a half hours on my skin.

Chic

Chic is a bold, dark plum with cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had rich color payoff–I only needed the barest touch of my brush to get enough coverage for semi-opaque color on my skin tone–that blended out fairly easily. The finish seemed to have a “natural matte” finish, where it did not appear completely flat but wasn’t shimmery or luminous either. I noticed signs of fading after nine hours of wear.

Exhibit A

Exhibit A is a bright, medium-dark orange-red with a matte finish. The pigmentation was incredibly opaque, while the texture was soft, smooth, and finely-milled without being too powdery or too firm int he pan. It was consistent with the permanent singles I’ve had over the years. It was much more blendable than you might expect, but I have found that it has a tendency to appear pinker or redder (depending on what I pair it with) if worn at medium coverage. This shade wore well for eight and a half hours on me.
