In skincare, add the word brightening and I'm immediately interested. It seems, when it comes to beauty, just add tryst and I'm yours. Two releases of the year that were immediate 'I want need that!' feature the alluring word. The most recent is the stunning, limited-edition NARS Hot Tryst Face Palette (insert audible sigh) that is just about everything you could dream of. Like, it's distractingly gorgeous.

"THE NARS HOLIDAY 2018 COLLECTION. All attitude. No limits. Uncover your inner rebel with a covetable collection inspired by the iconic punk fashion of the 1970s. Stud your style with daring shimmer and shine; spike it with explicitly bold shades for a look that’s authentic. Irreverent. Always relevant."

I don't tend to get super excited about NARS products, but their holiday collection this year is so enticing. They went with a punk theme throughout their packaging and I love that it bucks what we tend to expect for the season. Oh, and those makeup bags dressed in safety pins? So cute. But, it was the Hot Tryst Palette that caught my eye most.

The box features a punk edit of the standard NARS logo that leads into the raised shattered / spiked design of the palette. It's weighty and stunning and perfect. Can you tell I like it? The inside features a full mirror and of course, the six face shades.

The shattered/ spike pattern is featured on the powders, which I have to say is part of the appeal. I don't know why, but a patterned powder always makes me happy. Of the bunch, there are two highlight shades and four blushes with a sheer to buildable, wet dry formula. I love that these can easily be applied with a light hand or built up, as a few of the deeper shades have the potential to be too much on lighter skin. Luckily, this formula gives that soft, glowy wash of colour that gives a naturally flush look regardless of shade.

The shades included are:
  • Kings Road: opalescent pink highlight
  • Swindle: sparkling pale neutral pink blush
  • Untamed: shimmering cranberry-magenta blush
  • Friction: shimmering golden-taupe highlight
  • Bowery : shimmering soft coral blush
  • Adrenaline: raspberry with gold shimmer

Overall, this is an amazing holiday release! I've been using this constantly since it arrived and continue to love these shades and formula. Sadly, it is currently sold out just about everywhere, but I would expect (and hope) a restock is to be expected as you can sign up for notifications from NARS when more are released. What do you think? Did you sang this or are you planning on it? Are you a fan of blush palettes?
