Nars Loaded Eyeshadow Palette

| Nars Loaded Eyeshadow Palette! | 

Forget the year of the Rooster, it's clearly the year of Nars palettes with the well-known brand dropping new palettes onto the market practically every month. Firstly, we were introduced to the Unfiltered Cheek palettes, then the Banc De Sable highlighter palette was released exclusively to Sephora (I definitely cried over that) and the Bord De Plage palette just launched on Space NK last Friday. But over the last few weeks, the Loaded Eyeshadow palette has been in the spotlight.

As you can see this palette is a neutral lover's dream as the dreamy gold packaging houses 12 neutral shadows. There's a good mix of matte and shimmer shades as well as light and dark shades, thus making it easy peasy to create any day to night look. What I love about the palette is that despite it being an LE Summer collection, the palette is catered to both the warmer and cooler months of the year. The addition of the light peachy shade and yellow gold are ideal for creating light and airy Summer looks but the deeper bronze shades and rust/burnt oranges are quintessential A/W hues. 

Nars loaded palette review

I've heard that a couple of Nars LE palettes haven't been on par with their eyeshadow duos in terms of quality but I'm happy to report the quality of this palette is excellent. The matte shades feel smooth whilst the satin and shimmer shades have that silky soft texture, making them very easy to blend. The pigmentation of the shadows is also spot on, the transition shades aren't overly pigmented so it's easy to blend them out. 

There was one minor thing about the palette that did kind of annoy me; Montaillou is a rich dark chocolate brown shade but it's so dark that when it's on the eyes it looks practically black, so to me it doesn't really make sense to have a black shade in the palette as well. Beaumaris and Versailles also looked slightly similar on my eyes. It's a minor complaint to be fair but when I've spent €55 on a palette I expect each shade to be different from each other. 

But despite that, it's a great palette and one I've been reaching for a lot! To be honest I would repurchase it just for the shade Privilege which is the yellow gold shade. It's a really unique shade and I don't own anything like it in my collection. It's definitely the standout shade in the palette for me!

Have you tried any Nars palettes?
