Hello! 2021 has really taken off at a sprint, I’ve been submerged in work but thought I would pop up for a few moments to show you an eyeshadow palette I have been enjoying lately. The NARS Extreme Effects Eyeshadow Palette is a limited edition offering that was recently released, featuring a mixture of shimmer & matte shades suited for a range of occasions.
NARS Extreme Effects Eyeshadow Palette contains 12 shades, and is mainly warm-toned, with a good mix of brown-purple tones and some reds thrown in for punch. Here are the row-by-row swatches.
Endowed – pale peach shimmer with a semi-translucent base. This shade shows up well, but fades fairly quickly as well.
Roleplay – light peachy brown with a matte finish
Take Control – medium dark reddish brown with a matte finish
Private Eye – dark plum with a satin finish. This shade is a little dry and sheers out when swatched with a finger, but picks up well with a brush.
Pulsing – medium metallic bronze with bright golden shimmer
Full Potential – medium warm plum red with a matte finish
Blow – light salmon with a matte finish
Tantric – light peach-copper with a bright shimmer
All The Way – bright persimmon red with scattered golden shimmers
Code Red – dark bronze with purple and champagne shimmers
Staredown – medium plum with an electric purple shift
Uncensored Black – matte black base with a scatter of purple and silver shimmers. This shade is drier and less intense than the other shades, and I also experienced difficulty blending it properly with a brush. Fades easily as well.
Overall, NARS Extreme Effects Eyeshadow Palette is a versatile palette with shades that are easy to wear and brightens up the visage considerably. The quality is generally top notch, and a steal at USD29 currently here.
