Ooh a video on a Monday, that's new! The NARS Narsissist Palette (€49.00) launched this past Saturday and I'm sure some of you are considering a purchase. I snapped mine up two weeks ago when NARS released a few on their website and have been trialling it ever since. So, I wanted to put together a quick video, reviewing the palette and showing you how some of the shades apply.
The palette is a gorgeous mix of warm and cool toned neutrals. It bears resemblance to the 2013 Laura Mercier Artist's Palette for Eyes as well as the original Urban Decay Naked Palette. It's quite unlike any of the major palettes so far this year so, if you bought the Naked 3 palette recently, you can definitely justify this little baby as they are nothing alike - don't you just love beauty logic?!
One of the only issues with the palette, and something I touch on in the video, is that there are no shade names to be found on the palette. Zero. Zilch. Nada. You wouldn't think this is a huge issue but, it was only when I wanted to talk about this palette that I realised just how much us beauty junkies love referring to products by their proper names! Sarah has a post on this very issue here which is so on-point! So, I took a leaf out of Temptalia's book and wrote the shadow names below for you (I/II refers to the left and right side of pre-existing duos).
My camera actually cut out before I finished the mini tutorial I was doing in the video so, I have included pictures of the final look. The shades I used were Fez, Coconut Grove and Bellissima I.
