Every body loves a bit of NARS now don’t they? Well, if you do then I have a feeling this gorgeous NARSissist Dual Intensity Eyeshadow Palette will be right up your street. You know those beautiful dual intensity shadows the brand launched last year? (Can see my review HERE) well, those clever folk have brought together eight of the shades into one palette that is pretty darn gorgeous.
Plus make sure you read to the bottom of the post as there’s some info on how you could WIN your very own NARSissist Dual Intensity Eyeshadow Palette too…
The clever thing about these shadows is that they can be used two ways. Either dry as just powder shadows, or wet to create a more intense metallic finish. So whilst there are eight shades, you can technically get sixteen different looks with the palette as you can use them all in two ways depending how intense or subtle you want the look to be. Of course the two palest shades are quite subtle when both wet and dry – creating more of a sheen wash than an intense colour. But those darker shade?! WOW. Just WOW. I’ve swatched each of them below so you can see both wet and dry and then I did a little bronze smokey eye using three of my favourite shades and combining both the wet and the dry uses.
For the eye look I used the palette to create I used Andromeda as a wash across the whole lid (dry), then Himalia on the lid to the crease. I then used Ursa Major in combination of wet and dry – so dry to add some depth of colour to the crease and then with a little flat brush wet as a liner and to smudge into the lower lashes. I paired the bronze smokey eye with a nude/peach lip using one of the NARS Satin Lip Pencils in ‘Biscayne Park’ (a favourite nude of mine).
So, think the NARSissist Dual Intensity Eyeshadow Palette is rather gorgeous? Well, you could very well win one of your own. As NARS are launching a little competition this weekend where you can win one. All just by sharing a picture on Instagram… easy right! Read on to find out how.
