Some of you bloggers may understand the unwritten rule regarding new makeup: you must take photos of your brand new goods before dipping a finger in them. Today I received this beautiful palette from my hubby for my birthday, and I was so excited that I had to take photos immediately to show you guys. This is the new Nars palette featuring their dual intensity eyeshadows. Even though I wasn't a huge fan of the last Narsissist palette, I knew this one would be a winner because of the reformulated shadows. I had swatched many of them after they were released in July, and I was impressed, but I never picked any up because they are so pricey. All of the shades in the palette are permanent, except for Ursa Major. As far as sizes go, the individual shadows are .05oz and cost $29 each. The palette contains 8 x .03oz shadows and a wet/dry brush and costs $79.

Obviously, I won't be able to give you a full review of the palette yet since I just got it, but I can already tell that these are amazing quality. You can also use these shadows either wet or dry. I only swatched them dry, but even so, they are very true to the color in the pan. I can't really imagine even needing to use them wet, except for maybe using Giove or Sycorax as a liner. 

On to the swatches!

That's all for now! I hope this was helpful for you. I'm really excited to try these out and see how they wear. What do you think of this palette? Are you considering picking it up?
