NARS & God Created Woman


I didn't think the time would come when I would actually splurge invest on an eyeshadow palette. When applying makeup, I tend to ignore my eye area - focusing more on my brows and lips. A couple of months ago, Kate did a video on the NARS & God Created Woman palette - right after the end of her video, I knew I just have to buy one myself.

Wearing Kalahari on the lids, Galapagos on the crease, Coconut Grove on the outer corner

NARS & God Created Woman Set ($59) is a limited edition palette that came out early this year as part of the brand's Spring 2013 collection. If I have to describe this palette in one word it would be: wonderful (or beautiful, fantastic, gorgeous, lovely...) I bought it during Sephora Chic Week so I got it at an extra 15% off.

The set came with a medium sized Pro-Prime Smudgeproof Eyeshadow base and a flat shade brush (#3), and the 6 eyeshadow housed in a tiny palette (maybe half an inch longer than a credit card). The eye primer performs really well, but I find the brush head to be a tad too big - it's a little awkward to apply the shadows on my lids. However, the obvious star of the show are the eyeshadow.

I like Alhambra (shimmery champagne-pink) just fine - it's too light to use for anything but to highlight the inner corner and the brow bone. I'm not too fond of Bellisima (matte taupe) because I find it too cool thus clashing with my very yellow undertone. Predictably, I favor Kalahari (shimmery warm pink), Galapagos (chocolate brown with gold shimmers) and Coconut Grove (matte dark brown). I find Night Clubbing (black with an olive undertone) a little dry, making it a little harder to blend.. or maybe that's just me.

At $59, the set is a little expensive but the quality of everything included is such a great value for money. Definitely worth your money.

NARS & God Created Woman Palette is still available in the NARS website, Sephora & Space NK. By the way, they just released a new set called NARS ♥ New York Set - you might want to check that one out, too!

  1. I like the earthy shades of this palette, and they look like they might last a while! It really suits you, can't understand why you've never used eye shadows much before :)

  3. This palette looks gorgeous! I'm all for neutral shades! But meh, too expensive for just 6 shades. Kuripot much? :) And I'm not big on shimmery shades as well. They don't flatter my prominent eyes. But on you, it looks absolutely beautiful! :)

    You have a nice blog! I've been a quiet reader for some time now. :)

  4. Such a gorgeous palette and one that I would probably pick up if it were available where I live for $59! I'm sure it'd be closer to $100 when it finally hits the stores here. I guess I'll just have to resist it for now :) Love the eye look you've done with the shades.
