Of course it comes in sleek NARS rubberized packaging reminiscent to the Guy Bourdin blush palette that released during the Holidays. And inside you receive 15 beautiful shadows. You might be thinking to yourself – “Self. Do I REALLY need another neutral eyeshadow palette?” Yes. Yes you do.
Are the angels singing or what? There are no names of the shadows on the palette itself, but I was able to grab them from the Sephora site.
Top Row – All About Eve #1, Madrague #2, Fez, Bali, Coconut Grove
Middle Row – Madrague #1, Nepal, Ashes To Ashes, Brousse #2, Mekong
Bottom Row – Bellissimi #1, Lhasa, Bad Behaviour, Dogon #2, Pandora #2
I wish I could say every single shadow in this palette was full of awesome. But I can’t. Some were definitely more pigmented than others as you will see in my swatches. And then other shades swatched beautifully. I found several of the shades to be firmer than others (especially the lighter shades) I would definitely recommend using an eye primer with several of them.
L-R – All About Eve, Madrague #1, Bellissimi #1, Madrague #2, Nepal, Lhasa
L-R – Fez, Ashes To Ashes, Bad Behaviour, Bali, Brousse #2, Dogon #2
Coconut Grove, Mekong, Pandora #2
So as you can see, the darker shades are far more pigmented than the lighter shades. I do still think it’s a GREAT palette and well worth the money. NARS shadow singles are $24 and duos are $34. Here, you’re getting 15 decent sized shadows in various shades in which you can create endless looks!
What are your thoughts on the new NARSissist palette? Something you would splurge on? What’s your all time favorite NARS shadow?

I love the color selection in this palette, but for the cost I expect great formula/performance across the board.
