Review: NARSissist ‘Dual – intensity eyeshow palette’

As I already reviewed the NARSissist ‘Blush, Contour and Lip Palette’,  I don’t want to go too far with a description of how gorgeous the package looks like, but I have to mention that the box is very compact and fairly lightweight so easy to travel with. And well… That mirror design is just so eye catching!

The palette contains a perfect combination of 8 colors, both neutral and more dramatic, so you can easily create different type of looks or transfer day time soft make-up to sultry night time gorgeousness. 7 shades are part of their permanent range and one exclusive color called Ursa Major.

The shadows can be used dry for softer application or wet for an intense pigment. Well actually I find them very buildable and you can have a strong pigmentation just using it dry. They are soft as a butter and blend like a dream!

As expected from NARS the brush that is included to the palette is actually a great quality flat medium sized shadow brush with very dense and soft bristles (brush number #49) that can be used wet or dry also.

Well done NARS!

Review: NARSissist ‘Blush, Contour and Lip Palette’

I was strolling over the photos of this baby for a while now in the internet and the minute it was available- I grabbed it together with NARssisist ‘Dual- intensity eye shadow palette’, but about that one later!

First thing that caches your eyes if of course, as expected from NARS, a gorgeous package. It actually has a real mirror on a lid with NARSisist written over it in white letters. It caches the fingerprints like crazy, but who cares, when it looks so beautiful! I really enjoy how they made it not bulky, keeping in mind that it has two layers and a lip gloss inside the box. It’s definitely not going to make problems to take it with myself for a job or holiday! So when you open it, your eyes are caught with 3 shades of blushes, that for the first look might seem rather small, but there is rather enough product. Then you can see a cute small lip gloss peeking and a good size and quality mirror. When you lift the blusher part, you can see the two gorgeous products that are so famous amongst NARS products- Albatross highlighter and a Laguna bronzing powder. I must add that the box has a nice weight to it as well (probably because of the amount of mirrors).

All blushes are limited edition- unfortunately, because they are gorgeous. #Enrapture is a very natural matte terracotta shade with pink mixed in it (I would say it could also be used as a contour shade for light skin tones), #Enthralled soft rosy beige, matte based with tiny gold shimmer particles and #Roman Holiday- a matte cool toned pastel pink. #Albatross is an intense highlighter with a strong light yellowy gold shine and #Laguna is a mocha type of colour bronzing powder with soft golden glow.

As far as a lip gloss goes - #Istria is quite a pale cool tone pastel pink with tiny iridescent shimmer. The pigmentation is quite see-through, but you can definitely see the colour. The gloss itself is not stick.

Product sizes:

Each blush - 3.0g (0.1Oz.)

Albatross highlighter -3.5g (0.12 Oz.)

Laguna bronzer - 4.3g (0,15 Oz.)

Lip gloss - 4ml (0.12 Oz.)

Overall I really enjoy this palette and would highly recommend!
