NARS Danmari All About Cheek Palette Review, Swatches and Photos

NARS Powder Blushes have been a staple for me for almost 15 years and their latest Sephora exclusive Danmari All About Cheek Palette holds 4 of my favorite colors plus a bronzer and a highlighter in a sleek black compact that is perfect for traveling. Now who can resist that? Definitely not a NARS addict like me!

Inspired by Japanese Kabuki theatre, the Danmari All About Cheek Palette comes packaged in a black and red box. The palette itself measures 6.25 inches x 3.25 inches and comes with a mirror on the inside.




Each blush contains 0.12oz/3.5g of product, which is 3/4 of the 0.16oz/4.8g you get with full-sized NARS Powder Blushes. Definitely more than plenty and will last you a LONG time.

The colors are:

Hungry Heart I – a shimmery ivory with gold glitter.
Orgasm – the famous shimmery golden peachy pink that will work on any skintone.
Desire – a matte bright pink.
Casino – a matte dark brown with gold shimmer.
Super Orgasm – an amped-up version of Orgasm with slightly bigger gold glitter.
Sin – a shimmery plum with gold shimmer.

Like your regular NARS blushes and bronzers, these are highly pigmented and apply smoothly with such silky texture. Plus a full-sized NARS blush/bronzer retails at least $27, so the $65 price tag really is a good deal to get you started on NARS blushes or to get all your favorite colors in one portable palette.

  1. Love the detail in this review, but I don’t think the blushes are full sized. I want to say the originals are something like .16 ounces and these are .12 ounces. <3

  2. i purchased mine of nars.co.uk just thought i’d share just incase you live in the uk and cant purchase on sephora

    • Yeah it has been out of stock on and off for weeks now. Have you tried your local Sephora store? I’ve seen a few in mine the last time I checked.

  3. I wish they had this out before i purchased most of the colors in this particular palette, its a great palette to have for on the go use, because you would rather to take something in a package like that and have all those colors available all in one, rather then carrying many nars blushes with you, this is a great palette if i find a good deal somewhere I may just purchase it anyway, even though i have most of the nars color blushes in that palette. I might be missing two shades.

  4. By the way you have a beautiful blog, and you take amazing photos! These are so perfect photos I wonder what camera you are using, probably a dslr to get that close, and you have a great site I love the layout, it looks awesome… and its designed very clean and well I really like this style and how you have it done…. sometimes I wonder if it was professionally done or done yourself. Because I did my blog myself, and I had to teach myself, however I didnt about wordpress. But beautiful pics must be a great camera, and beautiful layout, nice presentation
