I think it’s safe to say I’m late to the party on this one, the Nars Narsissist Palette came out around this time last year and I knew I instantly wanted it. I’m ummed and ahhed over wether to buy it as it was so expensive and of course being limited edition it quickly sold out. I instantly regretted not buying it and felt a little sad every time I saw it pop up on a blog with rave reviews. Sad, I know. But all was not lost as I was lucky enough to receive it for my birthday in december. Obviously, I was over the moon even though it wasn’t a surprise and I’ve been using it non stop ever since. If you missed out on it too I’d recommend keeping your eye open on ASOS and Urban Retreat, the come back in stock every now and then only to disappear again at the blink of an eye.
If you’re a keen reader of beauty blogs, as most people who read my blog seem to be, you’ve probably already read multiple lists of the shades names and seen multiple arms covered in swatches so I won’t make you sit through it again. Instead I thought I’d give a shout out to a couple of my favourite shades/combination of shades.
1. First up is Fez (top row, middle), my absolute favourite of the palette. I love this one simply washed all over the lid with nothing but a few coats of mascara. It looks simple, understated but like you’ve put in a bit of an effort.
2. Fez on the lid, Mekong (middle row, right) on the outer corners and a little bit under the lower lash line with a touch of All About Eve (top left) under the brow bone and in the inner corners.
3. Mekong all over the lid with Coconut Grove (top row, right) in the crease is my go-to combo for a dark, smoky evening look. It’s a great way of glaming up my makeup really quickly.
4. Bali (top row, 2nd from right) and Coconut Grove work really well for me as brow shades and of course Pandora (bottom right) is great as an eyeliner.
I’ve only used the other shades a couple of times so far so I’m still experimenting with them. I’m thinking of putting together a post with a few pictures of me wearing my favourite looks but I thought I needed a bit more time to experiment first! It is in the works though so keep your eyes peeled!
Do you have the Nars Narsissist Palette? What is your favourite shade or combination?
