I seem to have turned into a real eyeshadow palette hoarder, a recent-ish addition to my collection is the Nars Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow Palette. To me it’s definitely not an everyday palette, it’s more something I get out when I want more of a ‘statement eye’. In all honesty, I’ve only worn it a handful of times in the past couple of months that I’ve owned it and as you can see in the picture above, a few of the shades are still untouched. This always seems to happen when I get two new eyeshadow palettes around the same time! (The other is the Marc Jacobs Palette which I reviewed here, I’ve been wearing that one constantly!)

All of that said, I’m still glad I got it! It’s just such a unique palette. Used dry the shadows are really pretty but nothing massively out of the ordinary, but used wet they really come into their own. They turn into what I can only describe as liquid metal and deposit a level of pigment that I’ve never achieved with other shadows. The finish really is beautiful too, super high shine that leaves lids with a ‘wet look’. Now you know why I haven’t been whipping it out everyday! 

Unfortunately I found it really difficult to capture any good wet/dry swatches on camera, it just wasn’t doing them any justice so I’m planning on using them in a video soon so keep your eyes peeled if you want to see it in action! 

What do you think of this eyeshadow palette?
