Hope you’ve had a great Christmas. Mine was spent at home with the family. The week I was home has flown by in a busy rush and I’m not lookin forward to work today.
This Nars palette was something I got in my space nk haul bak in October. I was drawn to it as the natural colours looked like something I could use everyday and the palette was much smaller than my naked palettes to throw in a make up bag for when I stay at the other halfs.
The colours at the top are with primer.
I also loved that it came with a mini eyeshadow primer and brush. I’d heard a lot about the primer and wanted to try it, especially as I’d heard it was good for oily skin.
When the palette arrived it didn’t disapoint. I love the compact size of it and the colours were gorgeous. Having never tried Nars eyeshadows I didn’t know what to expect with pigmentation and blendibility (have I just made up that word?). The shimmer colours were easy to apply to the eyes and had a soft buttery texture. The two matte shades also b
ended well but weren’t as soft as the shimmers. The pigmentation is also impressive and all the colours apply well. With primer the colours are even more intense.
The palette is versitile and the colours easily work for day time but can be built up for a more intense evening look.
Here are some of the looks I’ve created with the palette. The last few photos also show te shadows after twelve hours where. An eyeshadow that really lasts is imporant to me as I usually end up doing things straigh after work so need something that last through.
This is with the lightest colour all over the lid and the light matte brown/taupe blended in the crease.
Here I used the darker colours to deepen the crease and outer V.

The handbag size of this appeals to me as I quite oftendo my make up on the bus. The packaging is the standard Nars monochrome so it is quite grubby now from being in my handbag. Each eyeshadow is a gram so a reasonable size (a regular mac eyeshadow is 1.5 grams).
I can’t wait to get my hands on more nars eyeshadows. I’m impressed with them. Have youtried the Nars eyeshadows?
