NARS And God Created The Woman

Although named slightly strangely this is a great little set perfect for anyone starting out their high end makeup collection. It retails at £35 for the 6x Eyeshadow palette, mini lid primer and surprisingly good blending brush, which I know to a drugstore lover does not sound cheap but in comparison to £18 for one of their single shadows or £25 for their duo eyeshadows I think this is a really good price.
First of all the colour pay of all of the shades is amazing, it is exactly true to colour as it appears in the palette. The texture is nice and buttery and there is very little fall down on application. The shimmers are so intense you can create some really dramatic evening looks, but because all six shades are neutral you can equally create some lovely day looks; making it the perfect travel palette.
The Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base costs £19.50 for the full size product and works really well. Personally I prefer a more tinted lid primer (Estee Lauder Shadow Base) to cover my lids pigmentation but if that is not a problem for you then this is really good at keeping your shadow put and crease free.

Is anyone else with me, when you saw the shape of this brush did you think it would be awful? It isn't shaped like any other blending brush I have seen and the hairs are really dense, but it is really soft and it has some serious blending skills. The regular size Wide Contour Eyeshadow brush costs £26 which you can buy here; but you have to be crazy not to spend another £9 and get a little primer and palette with it just for the length of the handle.  

Basically, if you like to wear browns and golds you need this palette in your life; buy here.
