Whatever you do, if you are prone to procrastination, or if you have a deadline you can’t move or somewhere you have to be at a specific time, under absolutely NO circumstances are you to start playing with the NARS Pro Palette builder tool on narscosmetics.com.
I repeat, DON’T EVEN GO THERE! — because if you do, you will fall down a rabbit hole of endlessly arranging and rearranging your dream palette of eyeshadows, blushes, bronzers and powders, and before you know it, two hours will have passed, and your cat will be giving you the death stare because you haven’t taken him out for his walk yet.
Sure is fun though! 🙂
Earlier this month NARS did something very cool. They introduced two NARS branded empty palettes (a large one and a small one) that are fillable with whatever your makeup-loving heart desires.
Now, the idea of the empty palettes isn’t new. Other ones exist, like the Z palette, which you can get at Ulta for $20 (versus $14 and $18 for these two), but these have the NARS logo, and they’re also joined by a new line of NARS refill pans.
“Wait — did you say refill pans, K?”
Yeah, I sure did. 🙂 There are eyeshadow singles, eyeshadow duos, blushes, face powders and bronzers in 64 total shades, which doesn’t encompass the entire NARS collection from top to bottom (how awesome would that be, though?), but it does include a lot of NARS classic shades like Orgasm Blush and Galapagos Eyeshadow. As they don’t have the brand’s regular packaging, they’re also a little less expensive than usual. For example, the eyeshadow single refills are $18 each, instead of the regular single price of $25 (the ones with the regular NARS packaging).
You could also depot your existing NARS pans and fill the palettes that way, but I haven’t tried that yet… I’ll definitely get around to it one of these days.
Oh! — and there are also some pre-made palettes available that are filled with recs by NARS makeup artists, which is cool, because I love seeing what other people put in their palettes, too.
- NARS Small Pro Palette ($14)
- NARS Large Pro Palette ($18)
- NARS Pro Palette Refill Shades ($18-$30)
- NARS Artist Palettes ($203-$337)
