Ah, the otherworldly, galactic approach. Mounting my unicorn and pinning on my Rapunzel wig carefully Leia’d On the sides, to fly off….in this palette. I realize it isn’t warm neutrals, but can we get with another trend? Please? Someone? We have enough dead horses already (not to mention the taiga antelope die-off). So why keep beating them?

Thanks for the clarification, Christine!

I wonder if brands realized that when their marketing confuses me, it doesn’t entice me to open my wallet and scream “take my money!”, LOL.

I’m the opposite! Because my eyes are so dark (as well as my personal style/aesthetic), the only way I can wear light colors on my eyes is if it is shimmery.

I just tapped on the Sephora link and there is a video on this palette, you can use it as blush/highlight as well, the finished look is nice, I might get it!

Is anyone else starting to get a little irritated at the beauty industry’s insistence on using the term ‘holographic’ when they mean ‘iridescent’? Stop telling me something’s holographic when it’s not going to make my face reflect rainbows, a single color shimmer is not good enough to be called “holographic”. Nor is a two or three color shift, if I don’t look like a unicorn sneezed on me it’s just iridescent. But maybe I’m just too focused on semantics here.

That said, these are pretty if not super exciting. That shade of yellow has shown up in a couple new palette releases now, i wonder if it’s going to be a thing this year.

This looks nice – it’s about what I’d expect for a spring release, it’s just called galactic rather than garden something. I’ll be interested to see what the pigmentation is like.

I just this week bought the NYX Cosmic Metals eyeshadow palette and was digging around trying to find another palette with mattes and satins when I came across my Unfiltered II palette. Oooh, I’ll use that for blush I thought… and then thought again. So I’ve been using it as eyeshadow for the past week (uh, and blush as well) and blending the shimmery NYX shades over as a topper and it works surprisingly well! I don’t typically use a really deep contouring eye shade so the matte mauve or bronze shade works nicely for an everyday look and Exhibit A with a little gold metallic blended over looks SMASHING. If this is decently pigmented, I might pick it up to use the same way 😉

I wonder if the formula in the shimmers is the Hardwired shadow formula?That and the Dual-Intensity are my 2 favorite Nars shadow types.I know the Hardwired formula is included in their newer Narsissist Most Wanted eyeshadow palette.I just checked the description on that palette on Sephora and it doesn’t say the formulas included in it but I read it was somewhere.

These colors are really exciting to me, Pink, peach, and purples are my favorite shades of eyeshadow on myself – but I wonder what the texture will be like. I’m seriously limiting my buying these days, so I won’t be picking it up on a whim but I am interested to see when reviews start coming.

I personally wouldn’t mind, as it will help me save money, LOL! I’m not a fan of pastels, and I’m trying to not buy anything (with NARS being one of a few exceptions), so I won’t be tempted. Plus, it’ll be a nice change for those who are over, or can’t do, the warm/rich trend that we were just inundated with.

This is one I definitely need to see IRL, or at least solid swatches (like on this site!) before making any decisions. I like the purples, white, and pale pink, but I don’t *need* them, if the promo pic is a solid representation.

When I first saw this I got all excited because I thought it was a blush/highlight palette but knowing it’s eye shadow makes it less interesting to me. Shades are all so light!

On the fence with this one. I like soft colors for spring but unsure about all of the sparkIe. And don’t want colors that look almost identical when applied. The Nars product description is a little confusing – apply it sheer for an unexpected pop of color? Hmmm…
I wish I could get the Sephora video to play – it’s not working on my iPad.

I bought the new eyeshadow compact as well as the blush compact after I viewed on their site how they can be used. I am a fair skin redhead and I am 69 years old, so I study the videos well as I don’t want to look like a clown! I am blessed with only a few wrinkles, co that is a plus. I also purchased their new longwear foundation, which is terrific. Applying the new shades as shown in the videos, I achieved a look of spring which to me is waking from the darkness of winter into the energy and fun of the coming months. If applied well, the look is not all shine, but a subtle shimmer in the right places. Go to their store and try it first. I think you will be pleasantly surprised!
