Review, Swatch & Tutorial: NARS - Skin Deep Eye Palette*

I am very excited to bring to you a few brand new items from NARS - particularly their newest eyeshadow palette that launched this month, the Skin Deep Eye Palette. It is limited edition (spoiler: so go get it!) and has a selection of mattes, shimmers and metallic finishes. What I appreciate most about this palette is that their larger eyeshadow pans contain the shades that are essential to any look, whether it gravitates towards a more cool or warm toned look. It works in conjunction with the colors in the palette and just comes together effortlessly. It is a well thought out palette, and even includes two smaller matte shades that work well as a brow powder.

The products used to create the look you see below include:
Primer: Lancome - Blur and Go Stick*

This foundation is brand new to me and oh my goodness I think it is quickly becoming a new favorite. It offers a very buildable coverage that does not look cakey, it is a thin formulation so it glides on effortlessly and just covers any imperfections and makes me look airbrushed in my photos without any touching up (I did not do any photoshopping to my face in the images below). I used one layer in my look and it gave me a light medium coverage.

This is also a brand new shade to me, typically I use the shade Custard during my lighter skin toned months (winter) and Ginger, during the summertime when I'm a bit more tanned. Crema Catalana is a brand new shade exclusive to Sephora and it's a tad darker than Custard leaning more peach and it works so well in combating my under eye circles. Again, in the photos I did not do any retouching under my eyes!
