Spring 2014: NARS Narcissist Eyeshadow Palette

Do I really need another neutral eyeshadow palette?
Yes, yes I do.

Who am I kidding? Another neutral makeup palette is the LAST thing that I need in my makeup collection. Thanks to Santa, my neutral palette collection welcomed the Lorac Pro Palette into the family on Christmas morning and I decided right then and there that I was going to resolve to never buy another neutral eyeshadow palette again. With my Urban Decay NAKED palettes, my completed neutral M.A.C customizable palette, my Balm nude matte palettes, and my makeup drawer full of neutral drugstore eyeshadow singles, duos, and trios, I can honestly say that I’m set for life when it comes to neutral eyeshadow and there’s no way that I’m ever going to hit pan on half of them even if I tried really, really hard to.

That being said, when I saw the promo pictures for the NARS Narcissist eyeshadow palette, which is being released in NARS’ Spring 2014 collection, a voice in the back of my head was telling me that I needed to at least take a look at the palette in person and swatch it before I made any buying decision.

There’s no harm in looking, right?


Even though I’ve had adverse reactions to NARS products in the past (the blushes, bronzers, and highlighters make me break out into hives), I would still consider buying this eyeshadow palette because┬áthe colors are absolutely stunning and I’m familiar with the quality of NARS eyeshadows. I do agree that the price is steep at $75 USD, but it┬ácontains 15 highly pigmented eyeshadows (3 more eyeshadows than any of the NAKED palettes), a full mirror, and of course it’s encased in the iconic matte black NARS packaging.

This palette is the perfect combination of the Urban Decay NAKED 1 and 2 palettes and it features a combination of matte, shimmery, and pearly finishes. If you’re someone like me who already owns more neutral palettes than necessary, I wouldn’t rush out and buy this palette, but if you’re someone who is on the market for neutral eyeshadows or who wants to invest in a high quality neutral eyeshadow palette, I would definitely give NARS Narcissist a go. You can find this palette online and in department stores on February 1st.

Is the NARS Narcissist eyeshadow palette something that you’d be interested in or do you have your eye on a different neutral eyeshadow palette? Let me know in the comment section down below or on Twitter @Pandamoniumpink.

  1. I have my eye on the Naked 1 palette but the NARS one looks tempting too. I already have the Naked 3 and love it but I need a pallette with strong colours to offset the rosey tone of the Naked 3
