So I’m going to be very upfront + state that I purchased this set purely for Jezebel {the pretty shade in the middle}. On the Nars site it is actually labeled as a “shimmery sable” shade but it looks more burgundy to me than anything else {not that I mind}.

The palette comes in travel size + has a clever little space for the lip gloss. No more crying over lost gloss! And the mirror inside is a decent size so touching up your look is actually doable.

The shadow pigments are really rich + go on so smooth. At first I thought Naïade was going to be too light for my skin + Pandora was just another black. So very glad I was wrong! Naïade compliments both Jezebel + Pandora so well you can virtually create any type of dramatic eye + Pandora is the most awesome matte black.

Deep Throat {blush} + Laguna {bronzer} actually paired well with my skin so I used them both to add a little more color to my face. Sounds funny coming from a brown-skinned chic but I get so pale when we start losing daylight earlier.

I went with a light hand on my first use with this palette last week while just playing around in makeup a bit during the day {boredom can set in while the kids are in school}. I did use all 3 shades but just a little. The lighting isn’t that great {I’d rather use natural light but the sun was no where to be found}.

I also used deep throat {larger than life lip gloss} without a liner for this look. It gives me a pale peachy/pink shade but I’m addicted to mixing lip colors so I doubt I’ll be wearing it too often alone.

This is my look from yesterday. My fotd turned into a night look because it turned out I had a meeting to go to but the look paired perfectly with a bright blue peplum blazer + statement necklace {which I’m now regretting not snapping a quick photo of}  but the weather is cooling down so I’m sure I’ll be donning that blazer again. I also added more Jezebel + Pandora to this look just to add a little more drama.

I paired the lip gloss with a NYX lip liner {in Mahogany} just to bring more of a natural toned color to my lips. I love deep plums + mahogany bronzed shades for this time of the year.

Forgive the weird lighting + other fuzziness but we were headed out the door to go shoe shopping for the kids so quick pics had to happen. And that can only happen when I use my phone but you can see the color in my cheeks + that is a mix of Laguna + Deep Throat {bronzer first, blush second because I have oily skin which equals large pores + if I’m not careful too much shimmer ends up looking a hot mess!}

So is this enough to make you want to run out + grab one? It’s $59 + I snagged mine from Nordstrom, all in all I say it’s worth the money!

    Jessica, you look gorgeous! I need to swatch that palette. It’s SO pretty! I love Laguna. I think it works for a large variety of skin tones. The shadows are especially pretty. 🙂
