When the palette was first released, I was torn. I have bought NARS items in the past that werent the best quality. Some shadows were chalky, and others just didnt look right with my skin tone. (I am an NC42 in MAC and tend to get a shade darker in summer months)
I kept looking at swatches, reading reviews and figured what the heck, just try it. So, I finally made the purchase and although I havent used it daily, I do LOVE the palette. Yes, I too will say they amount of shadow is ridiculous for the price of the actual palette, but the color payoff is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! The set came with the palette, the brush and the eye primer. I cant really say that I loved the primer as UD primer potion is my holy grail, but the brush is lovely also. I would recommend this for anyone that likes to do smokey eyes, or just a simple nude eye during the day. You can experiment with the colors and see what works best for you! The colors actually lasted on my eyes all day which is a plus since I wear makeup 10 hrs in a given day.

This is my first NARS eyeshadow palette, and overall I do think it is a good product. The shadows are so beautiful and the color payoff is pretty good. I have seen other reviews stating that the single shadows have better pigmentation, but sinc these are my first NARS eyeshadows, I cannot compare them to the single compacts. My favorite colors are Bellisima and Galapagos! They are so gorgeous and are perfect for an everyday neutral, smokey look. The primer works really well, and the brush included in the palette is actually nice! The only con about this palette is the price. 60 bucks for 6 teeny tiny shadows, a mini primer and brush is ridiculous, therefore I do not see myself repurchasing this. Beautiful colors, but way too overpriced.

The colors are gorgeous and im a huge nars fan. I own some their eyeshadow singles that I love (coconut grove, ashes to ashes, abyssinia) and crave more of but for the palette i received, the quality of the shadows wasn't up to par with their usual extra pigmented one-swipe buttery smooth texture. The least pigmented of them all was bellissima, which showed up but wasnt as good as i expected, and the best was night clubbing (amazing pay off). The primer was great and the brush was fine. I did love it, but not enough to spend $60 on it so I ended up returning it :( Instead I am going to buy the shadows as singles. I guess palettes are a hit or miss...too bad because i love the concept

Oh. My. God. As if I needed another neutral palette.... and yet I couldn't resist. And I'm so glad I didn't. :) Out of all the neutral palettes I own (Naked, Naked II, Lorac pro, Too Faced Natural & Boudoir, Kat Von D Saint.....) this is by far my favorite. The reason is because these colors are SO GORGEOUS. They are the highest quality eye shadows I've seen. They look so lux and beautiful on and they go together perfectly. The only thing wrong with this palette is the price and its very small size. But the brush normally costs $55, so that makes up for it ;) I would buy this again in a heartbeat.

I just returned this today.... unfortunately, what a very sad day. I've used it almost daily to try to create various looks, to try every single color... and to try to love it. It's the best sized palette EVER and my intention was for this to become my travel palette. However, I thought the colors in the first row were too extremely light. There wasn't much I could do with such light colors. In fact, they don't show up very much on my Asian light skin.
The palette overall is a wonderful little thing, but I really only use the bottom row.... The quality of the shadows are A++, the compact size is fantastic, but for this price and I ONLY like the bottom row! Sorry, NARS!!! I love you still!!!
Coconut Grove (the dark matte brown, bottom row) is absolutely beautiful, I'll be buying the full-size shadow.
I hope they come out with more compact palettes like this one, I'll purchase for sure.

I stared at this for quite a while before deciding to get it. Compared to some other palettes that I have, this seemed to contain quite a small amount of product for the price. I was in the market for a high quality travel sized palette so I decided to pick this up. I've used this daily for about a week now and I have to say that I am very pleased! The shadows are high quality and blend very well. At a glance, it reminds me of a mini version of my Naked 2 palette. All six colors are very wearable and blend well with each other. I've worn them for 12 hours with no fading or creasing.
The primer is great. I've used it before and it works just as well as the Urban Decay Primer Potion. The brush is a little oversized for detail work but great quality.
I hope NARS continues to come out with such high quality palettes as I wouldn't hesitate to buy them all! :)

Actually now that I start thinking about it, I don't really remember when I first became interested in this palette. The fact is that once i saw it, I could not stop thinking about how fabulous it would be amongst my palette collection! However, i could not get over that 60 dollar price tag either. YEOUCH. 60 bucks for such a tiny little palette. But I decided to take the plunge and I do not regret it one bit.
Comes with primer and brush so the price tag doesnt seem as ridiculous anymore, the shades are absolute gorgeous, and consists of browns/neutrals. The majority, are very smoky dark colors, so this is a palette i use when im trying to make more of a statement or when i go out at night.
Either way fabulous palette and i really recommend it, it is definitely something I will use for a long time so its worth it :D

NARS eyeshadows for the most part are amazing quality and the eyeshadows in this palette are no exception! the colors in this palette are gorgeous and versatile - you can do both day and night looks with this palette. it is perfect for traveling because it is really compact/small but it still has all the colors you would need to do both day and night looks. the palette also comes with the nars smudge proof eyeshadow base (which is great) and a NARS #3 eyeshadow brush. even though this palette is expensive i would still highly recommend it!

This is my first NARS purchase and I am more than satisfied! The rep at Sephora explained to me that this is a great value. The palette itself is gorgeous. When wearing eye shadow, I lease towards neutral and taupe shades. This palette includes both. It is great for day or night looks and is so small and compact that you can take it along with you in your purse to work and pop one of the darker shades in your crease or outer v for a sexy clubbing/happy hour look :) The color payoff for this palette exceeds my expectations! I was so impressed at how pigmented and silky the were. I wore the shadow for a 12 hour day and it didn't budge The combination of the primer and shadows is perfect! I'm definitely going to purchase the full size of the smudge proof eye shadow base. This was a great investment for me and I am extremely happy with the quality of the product. I would for sure but this product again!

Two words. Vegas Perfect.
This was the only palette I brought with me to Vegas this past weekend, after purchasing this palette during Sephora's VIB CHIC sale. I was at first disappointed by the size of the palette but was pleasantly surprised at how versatile the colors were upon opening the palette. The top three colors create a very suitable daytime look while adding any of the bottom three colors create a sexy, sultry nighttime look. I got many many compliments on my eye makeup, however, while I was out clubbing, and it's all thanks to this perfect palette. I love how nicely it fits in my makeup bag without taking up much space, and the primer is one of the best primers I have used. I do wish the brush was a tiny bit smaller but paired with the MAC's 217, they were an inseparable duo while I used the palette.
Go get this girls while it's still available at Sephora! You will be using all the colors : )
