NARS L’Amour, Toujours L’Amour Eyeshadow Palette

NARS L’Amour, Toujours L’Amour Eyeshadow Palette ($59.00 for 0.84 oz.) is a new, limited edition eyeshadow palette that features twelve eyeshadows; four are over-sized and eight are more normally sized. What’s interesting to me is that I can’t find a single call out from the bran that the formula is any different than their typical powder eyeshadow, and I think that with the exception of mattes, they’re quite different. They have a much denser and creamier consistency–you can feel the silicone in it–that makes it comparable to newer formulas like Make Up For Ever Artist Shadows, MAC Colour Drenched Pigments, and Kat Von D Metal Crush Eyeshadows (to name a few). I personally find that NARS’ standard eyeshadow formula to be one of the weaker high-end formulations, though there are some that are great. This palette, overall, is significantly more pigmented, easier to work with, and more blendable than the majority of NARS eyeshadows I have tried to-date. I think the weakest point is that these creased on me at the seven-hour mark, so they definitely require a primer based on my testing for longevity.

NARS L’Amour, Toujours L’Amour Eyeshadow Palette ($59.00 for 0.84 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette releasing on December 31st at narscosmetics.com. The formula that NARS used in the palette for all but the mattes is substantially different than just about every NARS eyeshadow I’ve tried–it is heavy on the silicone and is more like Make Up For Ever Artist Shadows, Makeup Geek Foiled Eyeshadows, and Kat Von D Metal Crush Eyeshadows.

When I think about a go-to color for a bold, party look, I always think red. I’m curious to know what your go-to color is when you think about it! There aren’t nearly as many shimmery/metallic reds as there should be, in my opinion, that are permanently available. I’d love to hear about more that I’m missing out on!
