[CR] Nars Narsissist Dual Intensity Eyeshadow Palette & Blushes

Nars Dual Intensity Products Review!

Nars ‘Nars-issist’ Dual intensity Eyeshadow palette

Packaging: Mirror cover, with printed ‘Narsissist’ branding across the mirror. Palette has a nice weight to it, which adds that lux feel when you hold the palette. The rims are also slightly magnetized allowing for a firm and neat closure of the palette.
Palette contains: 8 eyeshadows  and a #49 wet/dry eyeshadow brush
Shades description: http://www.narscosmetics.com/USA/narsissist-dual-intensity-eyeshadow-palette/0607845083085.html#start=2
-    Europa - Gossamer Pink Peach
-    Himalia - Shimmering Topaz
-    Ursa Major - Chocolate Glaze
-    Subra - Black Orchid
-    Andromeda - Alabaster
-    Lysithea - Shark Grey
-    Giove - Navy
-    Sycorax – Black

Amount of product: 8 eyeshadows of 0.03oz or 1g each ( compared to the 0.05oz  single eyeshadows).
Price: 3,000 Thai baht (retails for 79 USD)…I bought mine from Sephora Thailand at Central Embassy department store.

Pigmentation: 10/10!!!!!! (this is a star product for me) The pigmentation in this palette does not disappoint. Applied dry, you get a luminous and natural glow (not glittery or chunky) with great pigmentation. Applied wet and you’re gonna faint from its SUPER INTENSE pigmentation level! (no kidding….seriously loving these shadows. Way to go Nars!!! <3 )
-    Dry: smooth and blends like a dream, even with very dark shades such as Sycorax (black). It does not get patchy at all, which is surprising, as most dark eyeshadows tend to get patchy easily if applied too strongly at first swipe.
-    Wet: It’s like a cream shadow in a palette. A cream shadow that does not dry up and crack! What is not to love?! It is also as blendable as when it’s dry. Not to mention how well it glides onto the lids from the brush. Don’t worry about these shadows clinging to your brushes like cream shadows either! Yay!!! Another plus lol!
-    Dry: Smooth and velvet in texture on the lids. It’s great for mature-skinned or lids too, because the shimmers are so fine that they do not highlight wrinkles or settles on any groves or lines on the lids. Even though these shadows do not cry ‘GLITTER’, they do provide you with a luminous sheen and catch the right amount of light to provide a natural glow & ‘pop’ to your eyes.
-    Wet:  It’s as if you’re lids are painted on! The shadows adhere to the lids so seamlessly that it looks like you’ve photoshopped your lids! And don’t worry about applying the wet shadows on top of an eye primer. The eye primer will only make your eye make up lasts longer! So go for it! ;) x
Ingredient list:

Dual Intensity Blushes

Packaging: Has got that Nars signature black packaging vibe, but revamped by having slightly magnetized rims, and sharper and more masculine design.
Price: 1,700 baht (retails for 45 USD)
Amount of product: 6g or 0.21 oz.
Shade description: http://www.narscosmetics.com/USA/blush
-    Fervor: shimmering soft pink/ sparkling deep coppery rose
-    Frenzy: sparkling soft pink-gold highlighter/ shimmering bright tangerine orange
Texture: Extremely smooth and silky, and fits onto the skin effortlessly.
Pigmentation: 10/10
Effect: Nars mentioned that this product is created with Translucent Prismatic Technology, which allows the effect to be multi-dimensional. I think the multi-dimensional effect actually comes from its wet/dry property because the impact and intensity change dramatically once you apply it wet. With a dry application, you get this natural glow (especially from the highlight shades) and a soft-look natural flush to the cheek. However, it also gives your cheeks radiance and luminosity as the blush contains micro shimmer that catches light ever so subtly. When applied wet, you’d get this dramatic pigmentation, which is great when you’re going to be taking photos with lots and lots of flashes, but it might be too intense for day to day ear (but again, it depends on how light/strong your application is).
