I tried out one of NARS' Dual Intensity eyeshadows in Callisto a while ago and really liked the buttery soft texture, the pigmentation, and the insanely metallic finish.  When ASOS offered 20% off the NARSissit palette, containing eight shades of Dual Intensity eyeshadow, I couldn't resist.

The palette is no disappointment - the packaging is sleek, black and shiny, very typical NARS.  The colour selection within the palette is surprisingly wearable given how bold and jewel-like they look in the pan.  Swatched, bright jewel tones like Glove (sapphire blue) and Subra (described as black orchid) are deeper, richer, with a glint of jewel-toned colour flash, but less intense colour off the bat.

My favourite shades are Lysithea, described as a sharkskin grey; Himalia, shimmering topaz; and Subra, black orchid.  They all look stunning on their own, and just as stunning blended together.  I particularly like the slightly metallic sheen to Sycorax - it makes for a smudgy liner with lots of depth, or a very dimensional outer v colour.

Overall, then, I'm very glad I bought this palette - I paid £38 for it, which is a lot, but not that much compared than a single Dual Intensity eyeshadow, which costs £21.  Even at a full retail price of £45, this palette is still a more reasonably priced way to build a collection of Dual Intensity eyeshadows if you know you like them.  You can find it at Selfridges, as ASOS are unsurprisingly out of stock.

Disclosure:  Bought by me.
