If you watched my 'What I got for Christmas' video, you would of seen this little baby being featured. It's the beautiful limited edition Virtual Domination Cheek Palette by NARS. The packaging is stunning, a gorgeous monochrome weighted case - which definitely feels more elegant than your average palette, with a large mirror and five shades inside!
I'm already a HUGE fan of NARS' blushes, I have four already, and Luster is my all time favourite, I actually use that shade almost every-day. Anyway, I was so excited to receive this little beauty at Christmas. It comes with three blush shades, one highlighter and one bronzer.
Miss Liberty. A beautiful light golden champagne shade with some specks of glitter. This isn't as in your face as some highlighters, so perfect for every-day use to highlight those cheekbones without over doing it.
Deep Throat. A peachy pink with hints of gold glitter for a sheen finish. It's highly pigmented and looks lovely on the cheeks! This is one of my favourites in this collection!
Laguna. Everybody raves about Laguna, so it's nice that I can finally test it out and see what all the hype is about! It's a gorgeous bronze colour suitable for all skin tones, has a subtle shimmer which adds a lovely glow to the skin. I am currently using this as a contour shade and so far I'm enjoying it!
Sex Fantasy. This is a cool toned matte pink, not as pigmented as the rest, but it's perfect for a flush of colour and for every-day use.
Final Cut. This shade is similar to Deep Throat but without the shimmer, it's a gorgeous peachy coral shade, highly pigmented and looks beautiful on the cheeks! This is another one of my favourites from this collection!

Overall, I think this palette is well worth the money. The blush shades are smaller than a standard individual NARS blush, BUT, you do get a full-sized Laguna which is around the twenty five pound mark alone! And I like the idea that they've added a highlighter, amongst the bronzer and blush shades.
It's not often where I find a palette where I adore absolutely everything in it and will actually make use of everything, so I am a very happy bunny that I have this in my life.
