When the news broke that NARS were releasing a limited edition eyeshadow palette packed with their Dual-Intensity Eyeshadows, I knew I wanted it even before I saw it. See, I’ve been toying about purchasing a couple of shades from the Dual-Intensity lineup but I begrudged paying £21 for one shade, so I knew a palette was the perfect solution and even more so when I discovered that the two shades I wanted to buy were actually in the palette. The NARS Dual Intensity Eyeshadow Palette contains eight Dual-Intensity Eyeshadows; seven of which are from the permanent shade range and one is an exclusive shade to this palette.
NARS Dual Intensity Eyeshadow Palette Review and Swatches
Europa: a pale, peachy pink with a metallic finish.
Himalia: a golden bronze with a shimmery finish.
Ursa Major: a rich, chocolate brown with a satin finish.
Subra: a deep brown matte, containing deep burgundy pearl.
Andromeda: a super pale beige cream with a shimmery finish.
Lysithea: a grey taupe with a touch of olive and silver with a metallic finish.
Giove: a deep, intense navy blue with a subtle sheen.
Sycorax: a very intense black luminous matte.
All of the NARS Dual Intensity Eyeshadow Palette swatches were done dry, and I can’t believe how pigmented they all are as I was worried that they’d be quite insipid unless they were used wet but the pigmentation is incredible and the colours are all absolutely stunning.
My favourites would have to be Europa, Subra and Giove but there isn’t one shade that I don’t like, and I really couldn’t be happier with this beautiful palette, and I totally recommend snapping it up if you want it as it’s limited edition, and you really don’t want to miss out…
