NARSissist Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow Palette

All the beauty lovers reading this, you know that we always, ALWAYS have to check out the beauty section at the drugstore, department store, F21, H&M and so on. If Starbucks/ Dunkin Donuts had a beauty section, we would be checking that out as well, and so there was no way I was skipping it while inside Nordstrom Rack or I would not have found the
NARSissist Dual Intensity Eyeshadow Palette
on such a great deal!
Originally $79.99, purchased this beauty at Nordstrom Rack for $49.99!!!

*My apologies for the used palette picture but my original photos did not show the true colors of these shadows*
Eight shades of mesmerizing Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow. Apply dry for sheer color or with a dampened brush for a high-impact finish. Features new exclusive shade Ursa Major and mini Wet-Dry Eyeshadow Brush. Wet or dry, day to night. Double-takes never looked so good.

Himalia - shimmering topaz
Ursa Major - *exclusive shade* chocolate glaze
Subra - black orchid
Andromeda - alabaster
Lysithea - shark grey
Giove - navy
Sycorax - black

Here you can see a wet and dry swatch of some of the eyeshadows.
I used a face primer spray to wet the eyeshadow brush before "dipping" it into the pan.
As you can see, using it with a wet brush makes the shades more vibrant.

Here's an eye look using some of the shadows from the palette.
On the outer corners I used a mix of H&M single shadow in Cocoa Mauve + Subra
On the inner corners and center of my lids I used Himalia to give the daytime smokey eye look some dimension and shine.
*On the lips is NYX Intense Butter Gloss in Toasted Marshmallow.

Here's another look, using the Subra eyeshadow with a wet brush.
I used Sycorax + Subra on the outer corners.
Again I applied Himalia on the center of my lids for dimension/ highlight.
You can find a tutorial of this eye look on my YouTube Channel: FiveTwo Beauty!

 My Thoughts

Overall, I am really happy with this purchase. These eyeshadows are pretty pigmented. You may have some fallout if you don't tap your brush after dipping it into the pan. Though this palette is missing a nice transition/crease shade, I can still use this palette for a lot of different looks from day to night eye makeup looks. I don't think this will be great for travel even if with its versatile eyeshadow shades since the front of the packaging is a mirror.

I love using the darker shadows with a wet brush as it really makes the shadows looks deeper, darker. I have only used this with an eye primer underneath so I'm not sure how the longevity of these shadows are without using an eye primer.

I have only tried the dual-intensity eyeshadows from NARS and these did not disappoint at all. I think these eyeshadows are very worth it and I do hope they keep expanding this collection!

Again you can purchase this on for $63.20
