Palettes make this NARSissist very happy! The arrival of the new NARS The NARSissist Eyeshadow Palette and The NARSissist Cheek Kit was some heavenly beautymail.
NARSissist Eye Palette ($89 CAD/$79 US) This palette features 15 of the NARSissist community’s most beloved and inspiring shades in one compact, ready-to-wear every day, every way. The great thing about this palette is that they are all existing NARS shades. No surprises. There are certainly lots of reviews and swatches out there so you know the quality you are getting. I had thought there were some less than stellar shades included from some of the info I had read but they all swatched beautifully for me. I obviously haven’t had time to test all 15 shades on my eyes yet though. This palette is a real bargain as you are paying $175 US/oz compared to $357 US/oz for the Singles and $250 US/oz for the Duos. Yes of course I had to do the math! It is a perfect assortment of light to dark and matte and shimmering shades. This palette will be a great workhorse palette for any NARS, heck makeup, lover and a perfect travel companion.
Shades included are:
- All About Eve I flesh toned neutral
- Madrague II (matte caramel)
- Fez (velvety cocoa)
- Bali (neutral)
- Coconut Grove (deep brown infused with reflections)
- Madrague I (matte cream)
- Nepal (soft sheer rose)
- Ashes to Ashes (shimmery violet based brown)
- Brousse II (black violet)
- Mekong (espresso infused with gold)
- Bellissima I (shimmering beige with subtle glitter)
- Lhasa (lavender grey)
- Bad Behavior (deep pewter)
- Dogon II (charcoal black)
- Pandora II (matte black)
NARSissist Cheek Palette ($55 CAD/$49 US) This set features three must-have shades for Spring and a newly designed mini blush brush for easy application on the go.
Shades included are Devotee (limited edition, highlighting shade), Orgasm and Laguna. I know, I know. Many of you are annoyed that every cheek palette seems to have Orgasm and Laguna in it. The fact is they are beautiful and iconic shades and what could be more fitting for a NARSissist palette? Even if you already have them in your collection this palette is a must because it is the perfect travel size. The entire palette is the same height and width as the standard blush compacts. It is just about 30% longer. Purse and travel perfect!
