Nars 'Ride up to the moon' limited edition eyeshadow palette

 


Nars is a brand which has swiftly worked its way up to possibly being my favourite makeup brand overall. There just isnt a product i've try from them which i dislike, and this palette is definitely high up in the ranks of must haves. The nars 'ride up to the moon' palette is one of two limited edition eyeshadow palettes nars have brought out for autumn, the other being 'fairys kiss', a more purple toned palette (next on my wishlist).

The ride up to the moon palette contains six highly pigmented shades, five permanent and one limited edition. Shades from l-r, top row then bottom: argentina (LE), isolde, night porter, biarritz, fez and cordura.
The palette includes one matte and one shimmer highlight shade, a shimmery amber shade, a brown bronze shade, and two more interesting shades - an almost black, metallic forest green shade and a darkest brown shade with gold glitter. This palette includes an interesting array, but the shades all work extremely well together.

This palette was my first dip into the nars eyeshadow pool, and i must say i'm really impressed. The colours are all buttery soft and extremely pigmented, as well as being blendable and builable. I created a smokey eye with this palette which i then wore to a gig, and upon return around 6 hours later, my eyeshadow looked exactly as before, with creasing or fading, and if i wasnt off to bed i'm sure it would have lasted a lot longer.

If you already own a lot of nars eyeshadows and use them a lot, you may find that this palette is rather small and may be disappointed to see you may already own some of the shades, but for someone like me who likes to try out new things, these smaller shadows are perfect as i know i'd never be able to use up a whole eyeshadow pan. For £32 this palette is rather affordable in my eyes considering a nars eyeshadow single costs £18 and you get to try out six shades.

This palette is limited edition so if your interested in it (which you should be) i'd highly recommend you get your hands on it FAST before its gone!
