NARSissist Loaded Eyeshadow Palette Review + SwatchesOctober 14, 2017
Let’s jump right in!
- ALLLLL the mists: sadly, my skin HATES mists. Despite the fact that I’ve heard amazing things about all four of these, I just gazed at the beautiful packaging and moved on to the Double Cleanse.
- Double Cleanse: AMAZEBALLS. It took off my eye makeup in one swipe. I wish there was a travel size because it’s a bit large to take on trips but I’m going to do it anyway I guess.
- Strobe & Sculpt/Strobe & Bronze: These swatches well but did not blend well on my face. If you’re a quick at contour I’m sure they’d be fine. I’m not – so I’d pass on these palettes.
- ITSLIPTIME: Impossible to apply evenly. They need to adjust their formula for pan-based lip products.
- ITSEYETIME: These were unbelievably pigmented! This palette has earned a top spot I’m my eyeshadow rotation. Smooth, blendable and buildable!
- Rose Oil Blend: THIS IS THE WORST. I waited to apply at night time (you can use AM or PM). I laid in bed for about 2 whole minute before I had to get up and wash it off. I have oily skin so putting MORE oil on it felt suffocating.
- Glow-y Powders: These were not as pigmented as I like for highlight. I want that GLOWWWW girl. I’d pass on these.
- Peel & Polish: Whoah, this is so satisfying to use. Many people say that it removes dead skin. It actually doesn’t – the formulation is made to collect oils, dirt, and bacteria into little balls. It’s not your skin coming off. I literally want to use this every day!
- Brow Powder Palette: This is essentially cheaply made eyeshadow. The brush was WAY too soft to be effective when applying this to my brows. It took over 10 passes to use. Pass!
- Quick Fix Powder: Not only is this powder mattifying in the best way, but the applicator is FANTASTIC. When you take the top off, there’s a sponge and the powder is delivered through the sponge so you don’t need TWO products (sponge & powder) anymore. YASSSS.
- Glow Tonic: This lived up to the hype! It’s gentle enough to use twice a day and my skin is noticeably brighter.
- Glow Peel Pads: PASS. You have to wash this off?? Why would I want an easy-to-use product already applied in a pad form and then have to wash it of???
- Flawless Finishing Powder: LOVED this but will prefer to use the Quick Fix Powder. The formulation appears to be exactly the same but with the Quick Fix Powder I don’t need to hunt around for a sponge or brush.
- Flawless & Poreless: This appears to be clay-based and for oily skin like mine, it’s perfect as a primer! I can’t even tell it’s on my skin.
- Glow Tonic To Go: These will be a staple on my night stand for the rest of my life. I love the fresh clean feeling (remember how good Noxema pads used to feel?)… and sometimes I forget to tone before bed. Never again!
- NOT PICTURED because it’s in my shower as a permanent fixture Glow Mud Cleanser: I was spending nearly three times as much on Dermatologica clay cleanser and this is literally the same. SO excited to save money and have my skin be happy as well!
