NARS And God Created The Woman Set
What palette am I referring to? I am looking at the newest palette from NARS, And God Created The Woman. This is an eye shadow palette that contains a series of neutral shades that can create a neutral or dramatic smoky eye look. And no one does eye makeup better than NARS.
As of right now, this palette is available only at Sephora and I will provide all the details that are found on their website. "An eye shadow kit with six sultry shades, a travel-size Eye Shader Brush, and a medium Pro-Prime Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Base. Captivating and compelling, this palette of six shimmering shadows shows off your sultry side. Created exclusively for Sephora, this sleek, travel-ready set also includes a mini Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base and Eye Shader Brush."
Here is what is contained in this palette!
Eye Shadow - Single-color eye shadows in an array of colors and textures. Mix and match NARS Single Eyeshadows to create great-looking personal combinations for the eyes. Textures range from translucent highlights and subtle mattes to shimmering glitters.
- Alhambra - shimmering champagne
- Bellisima - matte taupe
- Kalahari - medium bronze
- Galapagos - rich brown with gold flecks
- Coconut Grove - matte deep taupe brown
- Night Clubbing - black with gold pearl
Pro-Prime Smudge-Proof Eye Shadow Base - A lightweight primer that creates a seamless canvas that keeps cream and powder eye color looking brilliant, fresh, and just-applied all day. This smudge-proof eye shadow base uses a unique polymer and mineral powder blend to get a firm grip on color for long-lasting, gorgeous wear. Fortified with a special deep-sea extract and an antioxidant rice extract, it dries on contact and keeps the delicate eye lid smooth and ready for eye shadow application. This fragrance-free product is ophthalmologist and dermatologist tested.
Eye Shader Brush - Sable hair brush domed for smooth application to wide areas, the crease of the eye, and the perfect blending tool for seamless color.
I can't deny that I would use every single one of these eye shadow shades and I would use them a lot throughout the year. I already own Galapagos and Night Clubbing, deep shades that I don't use on a regular basis. I mostly use these shades to create a dramatic eye look or as a liner in a more professional environment so these are not shades that I use every day. If the shades that I owned from this palette where the highlighting shades, then I would be purchase this in a heartbeat as I use them like crazy and go through these faster than other shades. On the other side of the debate...I love these shades and I can think of so many eye makeup looks that I would create with them. Nothing in that palette would ever go to waste.
But do I really need that second Eye Shader Brush? I will make my final decision after I see it in the stores and if it the same size or slightly smaller than the traditional version. I use this brush almost every single day to apply highlighting shades and then to blend eye makeup. I love this brush but that really doesn't mean that I need a second brush that is exactly the same.
One of the pieces that pushes in the direction to order it is the Eye Primer, I love this formula and it is one of the few that I think really keeps any eye shadow in place. This is one of the only products that can keep Urban Decay's Midnight Cowboy Eye Shadow from falling all over my face. I wouldn't mind having another tube of this and I know that I would use it.
I will have to make my final decision after I see the brush in the stores. Thoughts either way anyone?
