NARS Dual-Intensity Palette (aka the prettiest palette EVER)

Monday, February 23, 2015

It was love at first sight when I was scrolling through my Instagram feed one day and my thumb paused on a photo of NARS’ newest palette. The Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow Palette is my first Narsissist palette and it’s quickly become the prettiest thing I own (but the Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita is up there, too). Even nestled inside is a mini Wet-Dry brush; this palette couldn’t be anymore perfect.
Inside the mirrored case are eight shades that range from a light peach to black. These shadows are made of incredible quality product and transfer well from brush to lid. When applied wet, they go on almost like eyeshadow paint; the outcome resembles a super metallic smooth look on the eyes. The shadows blend together beautifully and all these shades can be used together to create plenty of looks.

I had Himalia before and it still remains a favorite (it’s actually one of my all-time favorite eye shadows ever). Ursa Major, the chocolate brown shade, is a new one and I’m still playing around with the power this shadow has. Subra, a black orchid, is brilliant and goes wonderfully well with Himalia. Giove, a navy shade, is a bit out of my comfort zone but Lysithea, a grey, is a new favorite and seems almost more of a mint grey/green to me.

This palette is definitely worth the investment since it costs $79.00. But the value of the shadows and the brush work themselves out in cost and the quality of every bit is excellent. It’s even perfect for travel, especially since I just returned from a weekend away and this little beauty didn’t cause me any problems.
