Um, guys…

I’ve been waiting forever.  I was hunting down rumors before it even launched.

The NARSissist Eyeshadow Palette is in my hands!

NARSissist Eyeshadow Palette

With fourteen best-selling eyeshadows from NARS and one limited edition shade, every NARSissist can get excited.  I was originally concerned the palette would be rather small, but the size is larger than I expected and really quite functional.  The size, variety of finishes, range of light to dark, and full-size mirror inside make it perfect for travel.

The palette is divided nicely and I appreciate the way the shades are grouped.  If you ever question which shades work well together, just choose any row, column, or grouping of four to create your look.

NARSissist Eyeshadow Palette Swatches Row e3Row 3:  Bellissima I / Lhasa / Bad Behavior (LE) / Dogon II / Pandora II

One thing to note about NARS eyeshadows is that the texture varies between finishes.  The same holds true for this palette.  I wouldn’t use the term “buttery” because they are a bit drier to the touch.  They still blend smoothly, apply evenly, and I don’t experience fall-out.  If you find yourself stuck on how to work with the NARSissist eyeshadows, I recommend trying them with the NARS Eyeshader Brush #3 (or something similar).  It applies the eyeshadows better than most brushes I own.

There are so many things I want to do with the NARSissist palette, but I managed to settle on three different looks to share (all of which use Bali on my brows):

Rosy Nude

Inner 1/2 of lid:  All About Eve I
Outer 2/3 of lid:  Nepal
Outer V:  Fez

Browbone:  Madrague I

Of the fifteen shades, I already owned three (Bali, Coconut Grove, and Brousse Duo).  I’m most happy to have Bali in this palette because I use the single almost daily to fill my brows.  Just one more reason this is my new go-to palette for travel!  Dogon, Pandora, Bellissima, and Ashes to Ashes were on my long-term wish list, but it’s the remaining shades (like Fez, Nepal, and Bad Behavior) that currently  have my attention.  Needless to say, I adore the NARSissist Eyeshadow Palette and I’m one happy little #NARSissist!


Price: $79.00

Summary: NARS’ new NARSissist Eyeshadow Palette really is for NARSissists.  I recommend it to anyone who enjoys all the formulas of NARS eyeshadows, is looking for a large selection of quality neutrals, or who wants an all-inclusive travel palette.  Bonus points for Bali and Coconut Grove being great brow shades.
