Temptalia has swatches on her website!

So, so torn.

Well, those swatches do not do anything for me.  Maybe it's her lighting.

Another pic I found on tumblr.

 

I'm really torn because I always wanted to try NARS shadows but I'm wondering is there going to be huge quality difference between the singles & palette... I know some brands have that issue. Also, how tiny are are the eyeshadows going to be? Not to mention I just splurged on a couple of Burberry singles. #firstworldproblems

I feel the same way! I got the And God created the Woman palette from Nars and was pretty disappointed in the size of those shadows. I felt like for it being such a small palette with only 6 shadows they could have been a bit bigger. I just ordered the Too Faced Chocolate Palette the other day. I'm basically a sucker for packaging!

I am in the same boat! I loooove NARS products but actually don't have any of their eyeshadows. I'd much rather have a palette like this than spend 24 bucks or whatever and just have one eyeshadow. And I just bought Naked 3... Sigh, 80 bucks is a lot. I really hope I can control myself.

OK, so while I am irritated with Orgasm being included with all of their palettes, I actually am digging the cheek palette because it is so convenient to have your highlighter, blush, and bronzer in one.  Plus a brush? I'll wait to see the price but I may say yes to this one as well.

I would totally get it if it were a different blush. I rather have an extra laguna since its something i use quite often. especially since the highlighter intrigues me. but now i have orgasm in the foreplay palette and the guy bourdin

Re: Another eyeshadow palette

I read about it on a British blog and it was listed at 35 pounds ($57). However, it also listed the eyeshadow palette at 55 pounds ($90). When I called Nordstrom she confirmed that the eyeshadow palette will be $79, so idk how much they markup the British products.

Pretty! Some of the colors look similar to Lorac PRO pallet. I wonder if there are close dupes between the two (or w/ others). I'm sticking with my delay-buy and holding off on this one since I have so many great neutral pallets already.

Re: Another eyeshadow palette

Update: I just called my Nordstrom and they said that it will be released on February 2nd. I was able to pre-order one and they will send it out to me on the 2nd, but she said they will send it out earlier if they receive them before the 2nd. 

 

They will also be releasing a NARScissist cheek palette (with brush) at the same time. I'm unsure of the price, but the colors are a LE highlighter, Orgasm & Laguna (surprise, surprise).

I posted about the price in another thread: 

 

I just wanted to point out that those are .08 ounce pans - the size of the "mini" Orgasm/Laguna duo is .17 ounces (I'm assuming combined, so roughly 8.5 each) and the regular Orgasm/Laguna duo is .35 ounces (I'm still assuming combined, so that's roughly .175 ounces each) and a full-size NARS bronzer is .28 ounces. This set comes with the brush but it's noted as a "travel size" brush - for a size reference, I'm guessing.


Given than that mini duo (same size pans, I'm guessing) is $24 and a regular blush (the highlighter shade is LE but I'm going to guess you can find something close) at full size is $29 at twice the size, I'm not entirely certain that $49 for this is a good deal unless you really want that travel brush or the portability of he small palette.

Some product links with sizes and prices:

http://www.sephora.com/blush-P2855?skuId=248930

http://www.sephora.com/bronzing-powder-P12790?skuId=537878

 

Now I'm curious about the shadow pans and prices in comparison to duos and singles.

Temptalia just posted that this cheek palette will be a Sephora exculsive for $49 and will be available February 1st.

Tempting. Except I rarely wear bronzer. Maybe I'll have to start? But then again, I promised myself the next NARS blush I bought wouldn't be another Orgasm because I have a mini, a fullsized and a broken one I made into a loose powder. Excess much?

Once I find out the price, I might really want this! Why does it look so pretty and tempting! Plus a pint tone highlighter is amazing, especially since I have a hard time with a lot being to dark and peach/yellow for me! Hope its not that expensive though!

Getting that cheek palette! Yes! Can't wait!

Re: Another eyeshadow palette

FYI, the highlighter in this is Devotee, the same as the one in the Guy Bourdin palette.

I wonder what the quality is. I had one of those palettes with the blush, bronzer, and the 4 shadows and I was not impressed. I hear the singles are pretty good but this quad was terrible. Definitely gave it to a friend!

I am loving the neutral trend.  It means I can pass up a pretty palette without feeling like I'm missing out.

 

I do like the colours, though.  It's a beautiful set with a good mix of colours.  I'll definitely be swatching in stores if I find it.  Who knows?  Perhaps NARS will be the one to sway me to buy into the neutral trend.
