  1. Oh my god ! Thank you for those…
    Those kit are… amazing. I hope SO MUCH they will be available in France ! (If it’s not… Sadness.)

    Big surprise (not) – I am loving the eye shadow palette. The eye and face palette is nice too but I don’t wear Laguna or Orgasm so it’s only the shadows I’m looking at and the Et Dieu crea la femme one looks like perfection.

  3. AMANDA

    I have all the shade in the eyeshadow palette except for Night Clubbing. If you want to try Nars eyeshadows this is perfect! I might grab the eye and cheek palette :)

    Orgasm and Laguna, orgasm and laguna, orgasm and laguna… over and over again… will it ever stop? I understand they are extremely popular and top sellers but it might be nice for once to mix it up a little, experience something different.

    • Michelle

      I agree with you 1000%…I refuse to buy anything that has orgasm because I already own 2 of them in two different blush palettes. Also, I’m not crazy about laguna and I also own it on it’s own and in a multiple set. I wish they could include other colours in their sets.

      I agree, it’s a tired song and dance. It’s insured that I won’t be buying that palette.

  5. Holly

    Are these only available online?

  6. Thao

    I’ve reviewed the eye palette on sephora.com! With size comparisons – the palette wasn’t as big as I’d expected it, but great quality nonetheless!

  7. 18thCenturyFox

    OoOoO and God Created The Palette For Meeee…. My grabby little hot hands want this BAD

    Hi Christine, would it be worth getting the eye pallette if I already have UD Naked 2? I’m such a non-expert, I’m not even sure if the two pallettes have similar or totally different shades! Thanks in advance! :-)

  9. Deborah

    Hi Christine! Will you be reviewing the eye palette?

  10. Rachael

    I think that film is generally translated as “…and God Created Woman”, rather than “…and God Created THE Woman”. Either way, the the pallet looks amazing! And “the Happening” one looks nice too.

  11. Kelli

    These would be awesome if I didn’t already have most of the shades : (

  12. I’m really liking the eye kit. The cheek combination kit not so much because I do have the colors already and of course Orgasm and Laguna are already in my collection as they have been for quite a while. I’m more apt to by eye kits by themselves anyways than all-in-ones because I feel I’d get more use out of just eye kits. I tend to stick to only a few colors of blush anyways so if a kit comes with a blush, chances are I won’t use it, but I think NARS did a good job on the eye kit. The colors compliment each other well.

  13. maritza

    i want that eyeshadow palette! I don’t have any of those shades! I don’t care if i have too many neutrals :) that’s all I wear! thanks girl!

  14. The palettes look beautiful. Although I wish they didn’t include ORgasm and Laguna… I mean, I thought it was brilliant when they finally released that trio of orgasm laguna and albatross… but now, to keep incuding it in palettes, it’s starting to feel a bit predictable

  15. Every Nars product release makes me hate the fact they don’t sell it here. Love the blushes and velvet gloss pencils. This palette is perfect!

  16. If you are new to Nars, these are THE perfect palettes. Being in possession of the Pleasure of Paris and American Dream palettes, a couple of duos (Kalahari among others) and the usual blushers + Laguna, I shall regretfully pass.

    The first picture doesn’t match the first description. I believe it should be the picture showing the brush and base.

  18. Melissa

    I’m all over that eyeshadow palette – the eye and cheek one…..meh. Already having orgasm and laguna, I’d rather pick the eyeshadow one. I’m also not into the “All in one” kind of palettes.

  19. I already have the And God Created The Woman palette and I loved it! It basically had all the NARS eyeshadow color I’ve been wanting to try, plus a sample of primer! I have both Naked palettes and a slew of MAC neutrals, but this is much more compact (I travel quite a lot) and I love being able to try the NARS formulation.

  20. Tiffany

    omg I want the eyeshadow palette soooo badly! It couldn’t have come out at a more perfect time because I have been dying to try out NARS eyeshadows but I couldn’t justify spending so much on just one eyeshadow but this is perfect with so many shadows coming with it!

  21. Katie

    Hello,
    are there any permanent MAC shadows that you would say are similar/dupes for the shadows in the eye shadow palette?

  22. Geneva

    I was at JCPenney last weekend and stopped by Sephora. I saw this eyeshadow palette and loved the dark colors. I purchased it and I have to say it is my all time favorite palette, the colors are very good together. This suits me better than the Naked Palette’s, I had the original and gave it away. This is perfect for me and I love playing with the colors.

  23. Eva

    When do you made a review? I really want the palette a god create the woman, so please give me a reason for run for it!!!!!
