Heeyyyy… it’s still Election Day 🙂 I am trying so hard not to just sit and stare at the news, like I’m sure many others are. So, why not talk about an eyeshadow palette for a bit?
I mentioned earlier this year that NARS was a brand on my list that I’ve been wanting to try, but was waiting for the right time. Well, Ulta did a 5x the points on NARS plus you could get a free gift with purchase.
So, I bought the Afterglow Cheek Palette and the Afterglow Eyeshadow Palette. Let’s take a look inside the eyeshadow palette.
The packaging I love — a very hard plastic with a metallic orange cover that raises and dips like water. Very cool.
For the price, I was a little disappointed in the size of the palette and the pans, but that’s what happens sometimes. The palette has 12 shades: 4 mattes and 8 shimmers.
As you’ll notice in the pictures I took, some of these shimmers are so reflective they’re hard to see! They are more like foils and not just shimmers or glitters, to be clear.
The colors are (this is in the same order that I swatched them, from left to right): First taste, Crushed, Bayadere 1, Shadow Hill, Mad love, Trouble, Hot line, Push it, Deep cut, Whipped, Riding high, and Guayaquil.
Upon first glance, Deep cut is sooo cool looking, as is Push it. But, I was feeling really skeptical about how these foils would actually show up on the eye. But, after wearing them a few times now, I am proud to say they look amazing!
Some shades like this you have to use your finger or get your brush wet… not these. These are so impressive! It honestly makes up for the pans being small 🙂
Frist taste is very sheer, but good for an all-over lid color, and some everyday shades are Crushed, Mad love, and Riding high.
Technically, this was a summer palette, but I think so many of these colors would be great for holiday!
Overall, I am happy with this purchase and I’ll definitely be keeping my eye on NARS products in the future. What products of theirs do you like? Any that were disappointing?
