{Review + Swatches} NARS At First Sight Eye & Cheek Palette

I have been using this At First Sight Eye & Cheek palette from NARS "non-stop" for the past months. I thought it's about time to write my thoughts on this beauty.  The main reasons I love this so much are because this palette is so compact, about the size of iPhone 5S, only a little bigger, and you got pretty much everything you need for eye & cheek (and brow). These eyeshadow and cheek colors are so versatile, so perfect for everyday, but can also be built up for more intense/dramatic looks.  

Here are the swatches:

Deep Throat Blush: peachy pink with very fine shimmers. This blush is so versatile and pretty and can be worn all year round, but especially for spring/summer. It gives your skin a very beautiful glow without looking oily and the color instantly warm up your complexion. 
Laguna Bronzer: beautiful bronze with very fine golden shimmers. For reference, I'm MAC NC 22-23, Make Up For Ever HD 118/120 (review here). This bronzer works beautifully on my skin tone. It warms up my complexion naturally. HG!

All About Eve: flesh toned neutral with shimmers. This shade is so pretty. It gives a very beautiful sheen without looking too sparkling. I love using this for inner corner of the eyes and brow bone areas for highlight.  

Nouveau Monde: metallic silver lilac. This shade is so pretty and flarttering. It works so well with the brown(s) in the palette. 

Bellissima: matte gray brown. It's slightly darker than MAC Charcoal Brown. I love using this for crease areas to give my eyes more definition... in a natural and neutral way :D It's also great for eyebrows!  

Cordura: dark brown with shimmers. You can create very sultry eye makeup look with this beautifully. It can be used as an eyeliner for a more defined eye look. For everyday makeup look, I like to use this just at the ourter v of my eyes.  

Overall, this palette is fantastic! You pretty much get everything you need for eye and cheek. The eyeshadow colors are wonderful for everyday, and great for smokey eyes as well! Cheek colors are beautiful and versatile. It's compact and slick with a big mirror inside, so it's great to carry around when traveling. 

What do you think of this palette? What's your favorite all-in-one palette(s) and what's your favorite palette for traveling?

Thanks for reading and have a great morning, afternoon, or night :P
