Three looks with the Nars NARSissist palette

A week ago i shared my thoughts on the beauty that is the Nars 'NARSissist' palette which you can read here, so the obvious follow up would be to show you some looks I've been creating with it so you can make a judgement on whether it's worth spending your pennies (it is). A neutral palette filled with 15 eyeshadows ranging from pinks to bronzes to purples to deeps, i set myself a task to create three different looks for different occasions.

The dark lip partner - Using Nepal all over the lid, Bali in the crease and Fez in the outer corner.
This look is a simple smokey eye to pair with a dark, bold lip. In person it really did not look all that dark, it just gave the eyes some definition and colour. I love this look and think it's very daytime appropriate and easy to wear, but would also look equally as great in the evening if you don't want to wear anything too heavy. Ps. please excuse the eczema on my top lip!


The everyday look - All about eve #1 all over lid, Ashes to ashes in the crease and Madrague #2  in the crease to blend.
This look is an extremely simple everyday look using pretty pinks and purple hues. I love this look and definitely think its something i'll be wearing more in the spring! I filmed a get ready with me for this look over on my youtube channel which you can watch here.

 The bronze smokey eye - Fez all over the lid and mekong in the crease
This final look is a smokey, dark, bronze look perfect for the evening (although i actually wore it in the day!) These two shadows were some of the most buttery and pigmented, so you need hardly any product to build up the intensity. Unfortunately i had no time to take these photos before going out, so this is after a few hours of wear!

Overall, i absolutely love this palette and i'm so glad i bought it. Nars eyeshadows are some of the best i've tried in terms of colour and texture, and although the texture of a few of these shadows is a little harder to work with, the outcome is still beautiful and they last well on the lids. These looks i've created are only a few of the ones you could create yourself, not to mention the fact that some of these shadows work well one as a wash of colour. This palette should now be available from most Nars stockists, so grad one before it's gone!
