NARS At First Sight Palette Review.
If you've already seen my 'What I Got For Christmas' video then you'll already have seen this beauty of a palette. This was a fabulous surprise present from my Aunt and Uncle at Christmas and I couldn't love it any more- as I mention in the video, I squealed when I opened it.
This is a great little holiday palette as it contains four eye shadows, a blusher and a bronzer. I recently brought this on a weekend away and it was so handy, the packaging is sleek and streamlined- so easy to pack, and it meant I didn't need to bring a load of different products with me!
The eye shadows are as follows;
All About Eve: a lovely creamy vanilla shade with a hint of shimmer- pretty as an inner corner and brow bone highlight.
Nouveau Monde: A gorgeous shimmering lilac shade. This is so nice washed all over the lids for Spring, and it also looks great blended out with the other two darker colours!
Bellissima: This taupe shade is a great versatile colour. The only shadow without any shimmer, this looks beautiful blended into the crease for some more definition. I'm sure light haired girls could use this for brows too! Unfortunately my hair is too dark!
Cordura: Another shimmering colour, this one is a deep, dark brown. Including this shadow makes the palette so versatile as this can be used to create a lovely smokey eye for an evening look.
The blusher included in this palette is a NARS classic- Deep Throat. As well as loving its saucy name (NARS do love their cheeky product names) I love the blush. A light and girly pink with a hint of gold shimmer, but not as much as NARS Orgasm. This is a great colour for Springtime as it it is bright, fresh and pretty!
The bronzer is another one of the NARS cult classics- Laguna. Whenever I saw this mentioned online I always assumed it would look really muddy and orange on my skin tone. Oh how wrong I was! I love this colour, surprisingly enough it works really well as a contour shade on me and will also look great in summer dusted all over the face for some light bronzing.
Overall, I think this palette is a great little buy for anyone who travels a lot, its so versatile, you can create some great daytime looks with this and also use it in a more dramatic way in the evening (note: I also used Laguna as an eye shadow!). Th quality and pigmentation of these is also spot-on an I'll be keeping my eyes peeled for the next NARS palette offering!
