This spring NARS Cosmetics introduces the NARSissist Palette, 15 eye shadows in neutral and smoky shades that are perfect for doing a nude defined eye or a great smoky eye. I have been playing around with this palette for a while now and it really does have so many choices! For me some of the shades are very light, and I am so pale that they barely show up on me. If you are darker complected they will definitely show up on you and look very nice. That is why I am partial to the darker colors in this palette. They definitely show up on me more and I can get a more defined look with the darker shades.

We discussed our love of the NARSissist Palette, as well as a few other things (our love of makeup and our makeup addiction).

First look: Here is one look I have done with the NARSissist Palette. I took Ashes to Ashes in the crease, then Pandora II on the outer 1/3 of the upper lid and then I also lined the lower lid with it. I also used Pandora II in the crease to add some depth, since I have hooded eyes. All About Eve was used on the rest of the upper lid to make it pop more. I took Bellissima and used it under the brow and blended Ashes to Ashes with it up and out.
Here is another look with the NARSissist Palette: With this look I Bali and used it in the crease. Then I used Coconut Grove and used it on the outer 1/3 of the upper lid and used it to line the lower lid. Coconut Grove was also used up in the crease to add some depth, as I mentioned I have hooded eyes.. I used Madarague I on the upper lid and All About Eve under the brow.
This palette has something for everyone. It has 15 colors that work well for anyone and there are colors that are for any complexion, all of the shades are pigmented, go on smoothly and blend beautifully. There are shimmers and matte shades. I do believe that if you like smoky eyes, this is just about the perfect palette for you. Even if you like nude eyes, this is an awesome palette. You can get some very well defined nude eyes from this palette, especially if your skin tones are medium and dark. I am very pale and the light shades match my skin so those barely show up on me. But, I do love the darker shades to make many different smoky eye looks.
NARSissist Palette retails for $79.00 and is available at www.sephora.com and SEPHORA stores. It sold out on the NARS website! So if you want it, you had better get it now.
