NARS is coming with a bunch of very interesting new product launches for Spring 2018, one of them being the Limited Edition NARS WANTED Eyeshadow Palette. With this palette, NARS introduces an all-new pure pigment formula that gives an intensely rich and smooth color payoff. The description of the palette made me very curious. I own one eyeshadow shade from the brand and I really like the formula, so I’m curious to see how these will perform. I’m going to review the NARS WANTED Eyeshadow Palette in today’s post.
The NARS WANTED Eyeshadow Palette is made of sturdy plastic with silver and black details. The palette shows a pixelated image of a closed eye with the NARS logo layered on top, which I think looks awesome! The back of the palette shows the names of all the shades. The palette has some weight to it so it feels sturdy and luxurious. I think that if you buy the palette, you will get an exterior packaging that shows more information regarding the ingredient list etc., because it isn’t described anywhere on the palette itself (or on the PR packaging which is not pictured).
Opening the NARS WANTED Eyeshadow Palette reveals a mirror and twelve eyeshadows, containing 1.4 gr of product in each pan. The palette contains a versatile range of nude shades in the neutral/warm toned range with different finishes. The palette mostly consists of Limited Edition shades, but there are also some shades which were already available.
The NARS WANTED Eyeshadow Palette was swatched from left to right, top row to bottom row. The eyeshadow shades are described as follows:
Biarritz (Permanent) – Matte Neutral Cream
Satisfaction (Limited Edition) – Shimmering Golden Pink
Delirium (Limited Edition) – Metallic Rose
Temptress (Limited Edition) – Satin Paprika
Seven Heaven (Limited Edition) – Matte Sand
Shadow Hill (Limited Edition) – Matte Saddle
Mendoza (Re-released) – Glittering Pink Copper
Wicked Game (Limited Edition) – Satin Cranberry
Shooting Star (Limited Edition) – Glittering Champagne
La La (Limited Edition) – Shimmering Deep Bronze
Fallen Star (Limited Edition) – Glittering Antique Bronze
Coconut Grove (Permanent) – Matte Deep Brown
All eyeshadows are super soft, buttery and glide on easily onto the skin without looking patchy. Some of the metallic type eyeshadows almost even feel wet! I think the formula of these eyeshadows are absolutely gorgeous, as well as all the shades being beautiful. The only thing that you need to be careful of are the shades with the Glittering finish. I would suggest to use a glitter primer and use a (wet) finger to apply, because you will get tons of fallout otherwise!
For this eyelook, I used Biarritz all over the lid as a base, Seven Heaven as a transition shade, Shadow Hill on the crease and bottom lid, Shooting Star on the upper lid, Coconut Grove on the outer 3rd of the upper and bottom lid and Satisfaction as an inner corner highlight.
I’m absolutely in love with the NARS WANTED Eyeshadow Palette. As regular readers already know, I love brown/nude eyeshadow looks. This palette fits right up in my alley. It has a a nice balance between matte and shimmer shades that can create a wide range of beautiful daytime to nighttime make-up looks. The eyeshadows blend like a breeze, do not have any fallout (except for the Glittering shades like preciously mentioned) and work well together.
The eyeshadows might not look very special when it comes to the nude shade range but trust me, the finishes are really unique for some of the shades and are so effortless. The palette has a spot in my daily make-up bag and I can’t wait to play with it some more.
The Limited Edition NARS WANTED Eyeshadow Palette is available for €55,00 Euro at DeBijenkorf.nl and at the NARS counters at De Bijenkorf Amsterdam, Utrecht and Rotterdam.
