I know I go on about must-have beauty products a lot but I don’t think I’ve ever seen such an excited frenzy as when NARS announced the launch of their new NARSissist Eyeshadow Palette. Twitter near-exploded with all the NARS-related tweets and I for one almost fell off my chair when I clapped eyes on this beauty.
So when NARS sneaked out a few of these palettes two weeks prior to their official release date, I don’t think I hesitated for even a second before clicking on that ever-tempting ‘purchase’ button. £55 well ruddy spent is all I can say because this palette is even more beautiful in real life than in the photographs and I could not be happier with it.
There are 15 shades included in the palette and they cover almost every colour spectrum you could hope for, from beautiful shimmery champagne to a matte chocolate brown that is perfect for adding an extra line of definition around the eyes. In other words, it’s pretty much you’re all-in-one, ideal for creating almost any look that you could want, be it a daytime smokey brown eye, a subtle nude eye or an all-out dramatic evening out look. You name it, this palette does it.
As with all NARS products, the quality of the shadows is superb – they apply smoothly with a great colour payoff – and the packaging is that perfect ‘pop in the bag and go’ size, ideal for travelling.
So, in case you hadn’t guessed by now, it’s gone from initial lust to true love with this perfect palette. Now I just need to lay my grubby mitts on its blush trio companion… *scours internet*
