NARS The Happening Cheek & Eye Color Palette for Spring 2013

Wha? New palette from NARS? Do want the NARS The Happening Cheek & Eye Color Palette please.

It has Orgasm, that should be enough to seal the deal for me.

It appeals the NARS the Happening Cheek & Eye Color Palette is exclusive to Barneys. Guess I need to hope over there. For $65 it contains Orgasm Blush, Laguna Bronzer, and four shadows.


  • Night Star Eyeshadow
  • Corfu Eyeshadow
  • Coconut Grove Eyeshadow
  • Kuala Lumpur Eyeshdow

I would not be averse to owning this piece of gorgeous for myself.

Grab it online at www.barneys.com

P.S. I watched twenty minutes of Being Human (US) this morning while getting dressed. So Sally’s in limbo, Josh is no longer a werewolf but Nora is, and Aidan is buried six feet under.

Did I miss anything?

I’m just wishing back Hal and Tom’s bro-romance at this point. Any chance we’ll see the return come February? It returns to BBC Three later this month so I’m assuming we might get it beginning of Feb…please? *Puppy dog eyes*

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Wait, so is this only sold at Barneys? I’ll be placing an order on NARS’ website soon and I’d have no problem impulse buying this. lol

        We have a Barneys actually in Beverly Hills, but not sure if you’re in Northern or Southern California! The people that work at the NARS counter there are super knowledgeable and wonderful!

    I’ve been wanting Laguna & Corfu for a while, and who couldn’t use a backup of Coconut Grove? However, I’m in California, and we have no Barney’s… This would be such an awesome deal, otherwise. Do you have any info on the new eye paalette?

    • the Muse

      this is all the info I have amy. barney’s has a website and you can order online. Hope this helps!

      • amy

        Yes…,and no,LOL. I *hate* online shopping. I have this issue of “instant gratification”. As soon as I pay for something, I want it in my hands. My local Sephora has an instore deal on a Laguna/Orgasm duo I may check out instead for $28 or so, and they’re decent sized pans. We also have a “mini” Barney’s, but I don’t know if they carry cosmetics… I really want to live in NY!

        • the Muse

          lol come on over we welcome you with loving arms although I can’t guarantee your gorgeous CA weather daily ;-D right now it’s snow and ice and wind!

    I already own two palettes that have Orgasm and Laguna… But if I didn’t, I would snatch this up!

  • Fiona

    This looks amazing, I really hope they bring this out worldwide and it’s not just Barneys in the US. Ay idea if they will? Xx

    • the Muse

      this is all the info I have at the moment fiona sorry, from my understanding it’s barney’s only at the moment πŸ™

      • BooBooNinja

        That’s me: a cheeky kitty-lovin’ Ninja πŸ™‚
        By the way, I’ve learned early on in this cosmetics journey of mine that a girl can’t have too many coral/peach/apricot blushes. I don’t know why this is true, despite my efforts to pare down my stash.

  • dtan0914

    Barneys always seems to have the nicest NARS exclusives! I would die if I lived closer to Beverly Hills… The people that work at the counter there are really nice and they would butter me up to buy too much!

  • Wendy

    I just bought this! But not before reading your review. =D love your blog <3

    • the Muse

      happy to hear it wendy! πŸ˜€ thank YOU! I haven’t reviewed this yet…haven’t gotten my hands on so looking forward to hearing your thoughts!

  • Lindz

    What a great palette that would be! By the way, I love Tom on Being Human. I’m also a fan of the actor who plays Tom, Michael Socha. I originally saw him in “This Is England,” which is a great movie.

  • Melissa

    Not just Barneys. They are selling this at Lord and Taylor as well! I’m the counter manager and just got it in! If interested in ordering, contact me!

  • Beth

    I got so excited when I saw this, only to see it’s not on the barney’s site. So sad!

  • Simone

    Hmm. I have a very special day coming up in two weeks… Maybe I’ll be able to convince my boyfriend? He really hates “supporting my addiction”, but it’s a special occasion, and I freakin deserve it! Lol!

    I would buy it myself, but unfortunately I don’t have a credit card, and I’d feel totally guilty about it anyway…

    *must figure this out*

    Where there’s a will there’s a way!
