My Palette Dreams Come True

Does this post even need words? Just look at it.
This brand new and limited edition NARSissist Matte/Shimmer Palette (£39.00.) From the AW15 collection.
The first palette I wanted so much I pre-ordered it two weeks before it was even released.
It's over taken 'And God Created The Woman' palette, (also by NARS,) as my Holy Grail eyeshadow palette. Meaning, if I had to throw away every eye palette and only keep one, this would be the one.

Featuring 4 matte and 4 shimmering shades of shadow, as well as a mini "Larger Than Life" eyeliner, which is also fabulous by the way.
Should I start with the gorgeous packaging or the smooth highly pigmented shades?!

This palette comes in the same beautiful packaging as the Dual Intensity Palette, (which I rarely use and really don't like.)
The mirrored front, it's chunky, black, smooth and modern, it looks and feels luxurious, and the signature logo and black rubber make this even sleeker, So simple, but so good- I couldn't of designed it any better myself. Sometimes I just don't want to use it in order to keep it looking so nice.

With 3 nudey shadows, and the rest quite medium/dark, this palette would  be perfect for achieving a day or night time look, or if you're me, just 24/7 dramatic, whatever the occasion.
The shadows are just SO smooth and soft, you know when you stroke your legs after a good shave and exfoliate and it's super pleasing? This give me the same feeling.
They are quite powdery  over creamy and have quite a thick texture- so letting my eye primer dry in completely is a must-do before applying these to the lid, otherwise they do tend to get a little stuck and patchy.
Having said that, the pigmentation is as good as it's going to get really- the swatches above are just after 1 swipe across each colour with my thumb (without primer.) I recommend using a fluffy brush such as MAC 217 to apply the matte shades- I found that if I use a stiffer brush they can apply a little roughly.
The shades included are as follows:

  • Nassau 
  • Maya Bay
  • Ithaca 
  • Dogot II 
  • Mandchourie I 
  • Bonifacio 
  • Zagreb 
  • Heraklion
  • Night Clubbing (Mini Eyeliner)
If you're looking for a new palette, get this whilst you can!

    1. Oh the "Blame It On Nars" palette? I saw that on Selfridges and was very tempted!x

  3. I didn't realize it was possibly to drool over an eyeshadow palette, but this looks gorgeous! It looks like the kind of palette where every shade would be used :) xx


    1. Certainly is without a doubt, I'm in love Beth x
