    • Blend TELL IT ALL onto the high points of the cheekbones and down the center of the nose to highlight.
    • For an ultra-flattering wash of color, apply COME HITHER beginning at the apple of the cheek, following the cheekbone and blending up towards the temple.

    • Mix MAKE YOU MINE with COME HITHER or NEW FLING and apply to apple of your cheeks for a pop of color.

Exposed Cheek Palette is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good colors, not long-lasting I love the colors in this palette but they are very sheer and do not last long.I have been ambivalent about returning it because the colors re good and good for layering but after awhile it seems I do not have any color on my face. Disappointing

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty palette Gorgeous colours, perfect for travelling. I would say you have to use a certain kind of brush as the formula is like a baked consistency. I think a stiffer brush is more effective. Really like the highlighter, much more dramatic than I thought it would be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Blush Palette Ever! This Winter I felt the need for a bit more intense blush for pop, radiance and a bit of sculpting .... at my age, over 60, my needs change a lot ! This palette came out at the perfect moment and gives my my daily dose of delight. I find al of the colors work on my fair skin, depemding on my mood and dosage. They are all sheer, buildable and mix beautifully with each other. In the past I have found some NARS blushes a little muddy on me but these colors are very clear!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Pigmented The colors and packaging are gorgeous, but the pigmentation leaves much to be desired. It's very difficult to get any color payoff and what you're able to get is very sheer after multiple applications. I wish it were more pigmented.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Came with 4 colors cracked Swatched colors that were not broken and I will say Morphe palette has more pigment and the blush single orgasam is a classic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best ever I bought this the other day at a store. First time buying Nars product. But it was what I was looking for. I fought with myself about the price. But finally decided to buy it. Best decision ever!!!! The colors are beautiful. I'm a fair tone skin color but these are sheer so I can build to darkness instead of having it immediately and be too dark. I love all the colors even the dark brown and pink. I really hope Nars keeps this palette or at least the colors. I will buy these over and over
