NARS NARSissist Eye Shadow Palette

The NARSissist Eye shadow Palette (€55 for 0.03oz x 15 shades) is a glorious palette of 15 neutrals. It comes in a large mirrored compact and includes a wide range of colours, textures and finishes. I'm VERY late to the party with the NARSissist Eye shadow Palette (I have been told that it launched back in January).

I’ve been trying to get my hands on this palette for a very long time I thought long and hard for months about purchasing this one because of the price and also thought the Urban Decay Naked eye palettes might be duplicates, so by the time I came to the decision that I really wanted it, it was unfortunately sold out EVERYWHERE, I added it to my 21st birthday wish list with my fingers tightly crossed that they would have more luck than I had, my family and boyfriend tried very hard to find it but also were unable to pick it up.

So recently when browsing the Brown Thomas website  I saw the Narsissit palette on sale I couldn't believe it I squealed with delight unfortunately my wages hadn't come through yet so I couldn't buy it there and then and when I went back to order it, it was sold out. SERIOUSLY? I was beginning to think that it just wasn't meant to be but on my most recent trip to Dublin and Brown Thomas I ran straight to the Nars counter and FINALLY got my hands on this little beauty, I couldn't believe it, I honestly could have cried.

I've been really happy with this palette, the versatility is impressive. This one palette has all the colours you need for a multitude of looks: natural, smokey, bronze, etc. It will take you from day to night.

The colors in the NARSissist Eye Palette include (from left to right, from top row to bottom)

All About Eve (1 side) - shimmery champagne
Madrague (both sides) - matte cream and matte tan
Fez - shimmery copper
Bali - matte soft brown
Coconut Grove - matte brown
Nepal - shimmery peachy pink
Ashes to Ashes - soft grey shimmer
Brousse - shimmery soft plum
Mekong - dark blackened brown with gold flecks
Bellisima - white base with gold sparkle flecks
Lhasa - shimmery light grey mauve
Bad Behavior - shimmery gunmetal
Dogon - darker blue-grey metallic
Pandora - matte sheer black

There have been mixed reviews about the palette, some have reported a different quality and texture of the palette shades compared with individuals colours unfortunately although I do have some Nars eye shadow duos in my pro makeup kit I haven’t actually had a chance to try them out yet so I am unable to judge on this but overall I found the palette to be very good quality there were a couple shades I found to be sheer in texture and hard to work with but nothing worth complaining about.

I would recommend this palette to anyone, I feel it is the perfect palette from taking your look from day to night and it is my go to palette to take travelling with me as it has everything you need in one, the only complaint I do have is as always the Nars packaging has got a little bit gruby looking over my time using it but it’s nothing a baby wipe can’t solve. 

I originally thought the NARSissist Palette was limited-edition but as I have found it in Brown Thomas I’m not sure if they have re-released it. It may take a bit of hunting to find it in stores, but you can still find it online and in Brown Thomas Dublin.

Have you tried the Narsissist palette, are you loving it as much as I am?
