Nars Unfiltered ll Cheek Palette

Hi my name is Tanya, and I’m a shopaholic… of make up palettes! One of the palettes that helped contribute to having to put myself on a spending ban was this beautiful Nars Unfiltered 2 Cheek Palette.
I’d been eyeing up this palette since it came out months ago but couldn’t justify the £45 cost. I’d been praying for a sale but even when I got discount codes sent to me that palette was sadly exempt from all offers. It was by luck that I was scrolling on ebay and came across a rouge listing of it for only £20, everyone else seems to be selling it at a higher than RRP cost, and I couldn’t pass up the chance of finally owning the palette. I mean LOOK AT IT!

Housed in a beautiful pink mirrored case, which you can clearly see yourself in but is rather prone to finger prints, this palette is one of two Unfiltered Cheek Palettes. I can happily cope with the case cleaning though as this is the first Palette I’ve bought in a while where I’ve known I will actually use every single shade. How many times do we buy make up palettes and there’s a stray one or two shadows you’d never use, or a contour shade that’s just too dark or light so it’s never touched.

The Unfiltered 1 Cheek Palette is in my opinion is better suited for tanned and darker skin tones as the shades are quite rich and would be very strong on my pale skin. The Unfiltered 2 Cheek Palette hosts more subtle shades in comparison, all of which have great pigmentation, have an amazing texture that applies beautifully, and can be worn as a light dusting or be built up for a stronger look.

The top row of the palette (L-R) is Conquest, a matte pastel peach shade, Undefeated, a cool toned pink shimmer, and Power Play, a matte pink that makes me think of Barbie. Whilst these are all blush shades, Undefeated also works as a highlighter and can be dusted over Power Play to give the matte shade a slight shimmer. The bottom row (L-R) is Hot Sand, a champagne peach sheen, Fame, a rose-gold pink shimmer, and Candid, a raspberry mauve shimmer.

All shades in the palette are brand new, except for Hot Sand which was originally released as a limited edition but has since been made permanent. I wouldn’t use Hot Sand as a blusher but it’s a beautiful highlight shade and like I said with Undefeated it can be dusted over the matte shades to give them a shimmer.

  1. Wow! I love all the shades too. You’re right, we usually leave one or two shades untouched on a palette. We still buy it because of the shades that we’re after. But this! I love them all. This is just worth your money.

  2. Elodie says:

    What a bargain! I actually had my eye on this palette myself but wouldn’t justify the cost either.

  3. I can see why you have been eyeing it up for so long. It looks great but is a little price. Love the colours though.

  4. I really love all these shades but no way I would pay £45. Glad you got it cheap

  5. Donna says:

    Oh I love getting something I really want for a bargain! This is a gorgeous product

  6. Sarah Bailey says:

    Oh wow what an absolute bargain you managed to catch! It looks like a really nice palette as well.

  7. Becca Talbot says:

    Great looking palette, and so lucky you got it for a bargain price on eBay x

  8. Sarah Ann says:

    A complete bargain! I’d have been chuffed to get it at that price. I’d been thinking about buying it but I just couldn’t justify the price (and to be honest, I don’t really need it) but if I could get it on sale, I’d have to take it home!

  9. What a bargain, I’d worry that it was too good to be true. Such a lovely palette x

  10. Would you believe that I have never tried NARS before. I want to though as I heard that it is cruelty free. I like the sound of the cheek palette x

  11. Emily Leary says:

    I always love an unexpected eBay bargain! The top row are my fave three colours, I think.

  12. What a bargain! I’ve been eyeing up this palette for a while now too, it’s gorgeous! x

  13. £45 is a lot of money for a palette but sounds like a steal for £20. Great find and the colours are very wearable x

  14. Anosa says:

    £20 is a good price especially if you’ve been wanting it so bad and its easy to see why. Whilst I am not big on makeup I do like this palette.

  15. shannon ritchie says:

    That is such a steal for a Nars palette, this looks perfect for the summer 🙂

    I love my NARS blush, this is definitely a palette that I’d love to own!

  17. Gareth Torrance says:

    I think my wife would really like this palette.

  18. Dannii says:

    Ooo what a bargain! I am loving Nars products at the moment, although I am a little late to the party with them.

  19. francesca says:

    wow its a beautiful palette but you’re right I couldn’t justify paying full price for it!! So good you managed to grab it t a bargain!

  20. Louise says:

    Trying not to look directly at it because it’s so beautiful and I want it! Hehe. The shades in here are absolutely stunning, and I actually think I’d use them all 🙂
