Earlier this week something very special dropped in to my hands (thank you Mr Postman). The Nars Dual Intensity Eyeshadow Palette launched on February 1st and, like most Nars products, I was itching to get my hands on it. Limited edition, with a super slick mirrored casing that houses a variety of eight beautiful dual intensity eyeshadows – sounds good right? (PSSTTTT – if you want one for yourself then keep on reading)
The Nars Dual Intensity Eyeshadows are a wonderful creamy consistency and can give a gorgeous sheen when used dry or super metallic finish if applied with a wet brush. They’re long lasting, non creasy (well, not on me anyway) and very pigmented. The shadows in the palette range from peachy pink and subtle shimmery bronze to deep, rich purple and intense black. There’s a little something for everyone, but enough consistency between shades on each row to be able to work for a majority of beauty lovers, whether you love a neutral or bold eye.
The top row is my daily go-to, containing: Europa, Himalia, Ursa Major and Subra. Whilst the bottom row is a cool blue lovers dream with Andromeda, Lysithea, Giove and Sycorax.
The good news for Nars fans is that the price of the palette is £45 – much more affordable than some past Nars palettes and a brilliant saving when you compare to purchasing the individual shadows. It also comes with the specially designed wet/dry eyeshadow brush that was released along with the individual shadows last summer. (It’s a good’un, trust me!)
The even better news is that to celebrate the launch of the palette Nars are running a UK giveaway using facebook via instagram, giving away palettes every day!
