The prettiest Palette! :)

So I mentioned in a previous post, that I hadn't purchased any makeup recently due to saving for specific things that were on my wish list. The Nars Virtual Domination caught my eye after Christmas and I just fell in love with it, it was at the top of said list. However, with it being so expensive I pushed it to the back of my mind. Though every now and again I would check or in store to see if they still had it, as I knew it was limited edition. I had seen reviews, both on other blogs and YouTube, and there had been mixed thoughts, but when I swatched it in the store I thought it was beautiful. I adored the packaging and loved the look of all the colours.

I love the white, black and the red on the packaging and there's just something about the pattern that made me smile. When my birthday rolled around I was the lucky receiver of a Sephora gift card, and I also still had some money left over on the one I got at Christmas, so I thought...'why not?' I couldn't get the palette out of my mind and after discussing (at length) with Angie from Chocolate and Lipstick, (poor Angie :p ) I decided to go for it. 
This was my first ever 'splurge' at Sephora and on makeup in general, so I was slightly anxious about not liking it, even though I had gift cards! :p But considering I was in need of a new bronzer and I adore blushes (I've been using the Nars Orgasm blush, and nothing but, for the past year) I thought it was the best kind of palette for me to splurge on and it had the most chance of me putting it to use over something like an eye shadow palette. 

From the bottom right going up, you have the highlighter 'Miss Liberty', Blushes 'Deep Throat', 'Sex Fantasy', 'Final cut' and then the 'Laguna' bronzer. I have to say that they all show up very well on my skin tone. I'm somewhat pale with a hint of an olive skin tone. I used 'Deep throat' this past weekend and LOVED it. I had to be careful as to not go overboard, as it was incredibly pigmented, but it gave such a glowing, warmth to my skin as well as that touch of peachy pink. I also used 'Laguna' to bronze and contour slightly and again I thought it was gorgeous on the skin! :) I simply can not wait to try the other colours and am so happy with this purchase. Angie and I worked out that you get tons of product for your money and that was another reason I had to try it, as it made so much sense when I would no doubt have been wanting to get another Nars blush when the 'Orgasm' one ran out! :)

This palette retails at $65 and you can get it here!

What are your makeup favourites? Have you splurged on anything lately? :)

Hope everyone had a great Monday!

Love Lulu. xx
