At First Sight is a new, limited edition palette from NARS, housing two of their best selling complexion products – Deep Throat Blush, and Laguna Bronzer, and a quad of bestselling eyeshadows – All About Eve, Bellissima, Nouveau Monde and Cordura, all contained in a sleek, mirrored palette.
Deep Throat and Laguna are favourites of mine, and them being paired up for this palette ticks major boxes for me. Deepthroat is a coral with golden shimmer, and Laguna a not-too-bronzey bronzer with subtle golden shimmer in it.
The eyeshadows are all wearable shades – three neutrals – All About Eve; a flesh toned shade with a hint of shimmer, Bellissima; a perfect matt mushroomey taupe, and Cordura; a deep brown with flecks of golden glitter. Then, in case you fancy to take it up a notch and break through the neutral barrier, Nouveau Monde is in there too – a satin lilac colour, which is really pretty, and nice to use as an inner corner highlighter.
I’ve really enjoyed playing with this palette and creating different looks, it really is very versatile – you can get lots of different effects from the one palette and as there is a blusher and bronzer inside too, I have found my make up bag over the past two weeks has really slimmed down! This is ideal for travelling with for that very reason.
Here is one of the looks I created with the palette:
I started by adding All About Eve to the inner 1/3 of my eyelid with a flat eyeshadow brush, then using a fluffy brush, added Bellissima onto the rest of my lid and into my socket. I then took a pencil brush and added Cordura into the crease of my eyelid, blending it across and downwards to meet my eyelashes. I used the end of my flat brush to add Cordura under my eye too.
I used a black eyeliner pencil to line my waterline, and used it very close to my eyelashes on my upper lids. I finished by adding some Nouveau Monde into the inner corners of my eye with a small brush, and then added mascara to my lashes.
For this look I applied Bellissima to the crease of my eye using a fluffy brush, then added All About Eve to my eyelid and blended the two together. I lined the my waterline with a black pencil, and used black gel liner on my upper lid, then finished with mascara.
You’ll have to excuse my eyebrows in this photo – I was testing out a new brow product and didn’t realise quite how dark they were until I saw this photo!!
For this look I used Nouveau World all over my lid, and under my lower lash line. I added Bellissima into the crease using a fluffy brush, and added eyeliner to my upper lid and waterline, then finished with mascara.
For reference, I am wearing Deep Throat as a blusher in each of these looks, with a little Laguna bronzer.
There are three totally different looks I have created, but the possibilities go on and on. I am definitely going to keep experimenting! The quality of NARS products has never let me down, and I continue to be impressed with At First Sight.
