I probably didn’t need another eyeshadow palette, but of course I couldn’t help myself when I had the chance to snap up a barely used NARSissist Eyeshadow Palette on Depop. I also know that I’m years behind as this limited edition palette was released back in February 2014 but I just couldn’t help gushing about it on here as it very quickly became a staple in my makeup routine!
The NARissist Palette contains 15 powder eyeshadows that are completely up my street as they’re all neutral, work so well together and are perfect for everyday wear. I had already tried a few NARS shadows – Ashes to Ashes, Fathom and Ondine – and although Ashes to Ashes is included in the palette, there were also a number of shadows in there that I’d wanted to try for the longest time, including Lhasa, Bali and Coconut Grove.
As always, the eyeshadows have that smooth and buttery texture that I’ve come to expect from NARS, and I love that they’re so easy to apply and blend. There are a few shadows that aren’t as pigmented as I’d have liked, namely the darker matte shades on the right hand side of the palette, but they’re still great to use for a smokey eye. NARS single eyeshadows don’t come cheap at £19 a pop so I’d definitely recommend testing them out in a palette if you get the chance.
Unfortunately I can’t link you to this palette as it was limited edition back in 2014, but you might still be able to find a used palette online like I did (I find Depop to be great for this). As far as I know there’s only eyeshadow in the palette that isn’t available in the standard range – Bad Behaviour, the third shadow in on the bottom row – so you can still pick up these shades in individual pans if you’d like!
