Splurge vs Steal: Palettes

I LOVE palettes that travel well, like ones that give you eye and cheek color in one convenient case!  So I am reviewing a splurge vs. steal on that exact type of palette today!

The STEAL:  Stila's "Lovely in London" palette, $16 at Sephora and Ulta
Stila - Lovely In London Travel Palette
with an average color price of $2.60, you really ARE getting a steal.  This adorable little kit gives you five matte and shimmery shadows, with an all-over-color for face in a neutral flush pink that works on everyone!  This palette is perfect for the nudes & natural trend that is big this summer

The SPLURGE:  NARS is universally known for the incredible shimmery flush blush, notably named 'orgasm' and trust me...women everywhere are PLEASED!  (lol!)  They just released a limited edition palette for $49 at Sephora called the "Foreplay Palette"

You get four blushes (avg price of the items in the palette is $12, and one single 'orgasm' blush, the large square shown, sells for $28) in peach, gold, pink and the famous 'orgasm' which is a shimmery natural flush.

And the WINNER is.....The SPLURGE!  I hate to part with $50 over blush, BUT, the color pigments are so high quality, they put the Stila palette to shame!  Not only that, you can pop this sleek and beautiful NARS palette in your makeup bag, and that's all the blush shades you'll need for all your looks through fall!
