NARS- At first Sight

This limited edition eye and cheek palette caught my eye when I was browsing the Asos site, cue a 20% student discount, and I decided I had to get it (on the Nars site it's selling for £45, but Asos are selling it for £32!)
It comes in the classic black Nars packaging which has a kind of rubbery feel on the outside, and it's the perfect size to carry around, not too big, but not too small that you feeling you're being ripped off!
It has four eye shadows, the infamous Laguna bronzer and the Deep Throat blush. To me it had everything I wanted: Deep Throat is my favourite blush of all time, I've always wanted to try the Laguna bronzer and I really liked the four eye shadows. They are, from clockwise All about Eve (beige colour), Nouveau Monde (lilac shimmer), Cordura (dark brown shimmer) and Bellissima (brown/grey slighty matte colour).
The eye shadows weren't the most amazing for staying power but with a primer underneath they lasted quite a few hours, so that's good enough for me. And if it means carting around less as my blush and bronzer is there too, well that a winner as well.  I was also surprised by how much I liked the lilac shadow, mized in subtly with the brown, it was really nice!
Would definitely recommend this to anybody who wants to try Nars products, or someone like me who like the blush and bronzer and wants less to carry with some decent eye shadows!

Does anyone else have this palette or another Nars palette? What do you think?

  1. It's a lovely palette, but for me I think it's going to have to be the Nars blush palette this season - it's just too good to pass up :o). Xx

  4. Oooh I'm a long time NARS lover. Obsessed with laguna. Don't have any palettes, mostly eyeshadow duo's. But they have some seriously great products, I love orgasm for my blush, you should totally try it. It's a softer pink tone.

  12. This looks so lovely! I love the look of the Naked palette but I reckon I'd only use a couple of the shades and I'd love to try out the bronzer and blush, there's so much hype around them! xxx
