When the NARS Hanamichi palette came out for holiday 2011, I really wanted it, but was not willing to shell out $65 (!). I drooled over the swatches online, which mostly weren’t very good – a good thing as it kept me from splurging and clicking. Except for this one of course: absolutely phenomenal swatches that almost, almost brought me to the brink.
Flash forward a few years, and one day I saw that Asos had the palette at a much reduced price. That prompted a quickening of pulse and a quick search throughout Ebay — perhaps, just perhaps, this was not such a popular palette and now available at reduced prices. A few weeks later, and about $30 poorer, and voila! It is here, mine all mine, as beautiful as I thought it would be. To boot, all the colors work for me except for the white (too frosty). Love the red most as it makes for a most excellent blush.
I could see surviving only on this palette on business trips.
So, if you wanted this a few years ago but weren’t willing to shell out the moolah, this is your chance. Go for it!
