The Cheek Palette Rundown

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit  ($80/£65/up to 90€) This is the palette of the year! Ever since I spotted this on Instagram back in summer I've been stalking the Internet for more information and swatches. The palette contains 3 of their famous powders (Dim Light, Diffused Light, Iridescent Strobe), 2 blushes (Luminous Flush, Mood Exposure) and 1 bronzer (Luminous Bronze Light). The main critique with this release has been its price compared to the size and quantity of product you're getting.

NARS x Steven Klein One Shocking Moment ($69/£49/59€) In my opinion this palette is the highlight of the Steven Klein collection. It combines cult favorites with limited edition shades for a great price. The palette contains the Paloma contouring duo, Laguna bronzer, as well as 4 blushes (Luster, Dolce Vita, new releases Robotic and Blasphemy). The contour shades might however not suit everybody and NARS lovers could already own half the palette in singles.

Laura Mercier Blush & Glow Radiant Face Trio ($58/£45/65€) This travel friendly palette contains 3 of the brand baked powders. I've been eyeing the Matte Radiance Baked Powder in Highlight 01 for months. In addition to the highlight the palette also comes with the shade Bronze 03 and the Baked Blush in Ritual as well as a mini brush. Instead of the brush I would've liked to see another blush considering the price tag.

BECCA Afterglow Palette ($39.50/£34/49€) The palette contains the brands ever so famous Shimmering Skin Perfectors in Moonstone, Rose Gold and Topaz as well as 2 of their Mineral Blushes (Wild Honey and Flowerchild). With this beauty you've got all bases covered: blush, highlight, bronzer and even eyeshadow. This may or may not be on its way to me right now!

Other brands such as Tarte, Too Faced and Benefit also have cheek palettes out worth mentioning.

Depending on the exchange rate and the site you're ordering from the prices indicated in Euros may vary.


  1. The Nars palette looks like it could be quite handy with so many different, yet natural shades :)

    1. I agree, also I think it's great value for money! xx
