Review : Nars Pleasures of Paris Palette.

Let's take a moment to appreciate this beaut of a palette....


Ahh, so pretty! I had been lusting after this palette for absolutely ages, well over a year to be honest. I had to have it, but the sensible side of me told me it was a lot of money (for me personally) to spend on 6 eyeshadows! However I had one of those "Oh screw it, just buy it!" moments and then next thing I knew I was receiving my order confirmation email from NARS!
I can say that I am really pleased that I took the plunge and bought this palette. The shades are perfect to create a natural daytime look or a darker smokey eye look for nightime.It's a smaller alternative to my Urban Decay Naked palette, as the Nars one is smaller it is easier to carry around in a smaller makeup bag when I go away. 


Nepal (Shimmer) Violetta (Matte) Demon Row (Matte)

Fez (Shimmer) Abyssinia (shimmer) Courdura (Shimmer)

Nepal and Fez are the two shades that I can easily use indivudually for a wash of colour over the lid on work days paired with gel eyeliner and mascara.
For a night time smokey eye I combine, Nepal all over the lid, Fez in the outer corner and then Courdura or Demon row in the crease/outter V.
Violetta all over the lid and Demon row in the crease make a great light smokey eye which can be worn in the daytime.
I use Abyssinia in the very corners (tearduct area) when I want to brighten up my eyes a little.

Do you have this palette,do you love it as much as me? Which shadows do you combine? Let me know in the comments! 
You can get this palette from the Nars website (Currently IN STOCK - Be quick it sells out fast) and it retails for £37.00

Much Love,
