NARS Laser Cut Palette

NARS Laser Cut Palette ($59.00 for 0.62 oz.) includes three eyeshadows, one lipgloss, one blush, and one bronzing powder. The eyeshadows are marked as “Hardwired Eyeshadow” on the back of the palette, though I couldn’t tell you how they really differ from the permanent formula, other than it seems like a denser, less thin formula. The palette leaves something to be desired — I don’t think it’s NARS at its best–it’s just kind of in the middle.
