NARS Connor Tingley 6-Pan Eyeshadow Palette is a new, limited edition palette that contains six, shimmery shades of more muted neutrals. This palette will be most versatile when paired with other palettes/eyeshadows due to it being all shimmery but also more mid-tone; there wasn’t a lot of contrast and depth that could be created just living in the world of this palette. Five of the six shades performed fairly well with a few being particularly lovely–that really melted metallic kind of finish that NARS can do so well at times–but the pop of blue was a let-down.
NARS Luz Eyeshadow (2018)
Luz is a pale white gold with subtle, warm undertones and a bright, metallic sheen. The pigmentation was opaque, while the consistency was more loosely pressed in the pan, so it was somewhat powdery in the pan, but it applied evenly to my skin and had minimal fallout. It blended out easily along the edges and appeared more “melted” after a couple of minutes. It stayed on well for eight hours before I noticed any fading.
NARS Duendo Eyeshadow (2018)
Duendo is a muted, rosy bronze with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It was intensely pigmented with a smooth, cream-like texture that felt rich and dense without actually being thick on my lid. The eyeshadow applied beautifully with smooth, lit-from-within kind of glow when blended out. It wore well for eight hours on me before it started to fade.
NARS Niebla Eyeshadow (2018)
Niebla is a light, rosy taupe with warm undertones and a metallic finish. It had rich pigmentation in a single layer, while the consistency was smooth, lightly creamy, and blendable without being too dense or too thick on my lid. It lasted beautifully for eight hours on me before it started to fade visibly.
NARS Amanecer Eyeshadow (2018)
Amanecer is a light peach with strong, warm yellow undertones and a metallic sheen. It had nearly opaque color payoff in a single layer with a soft, lightly powdery texture that “melted” when applied to my lid and had a very pretty, smooth sheen that was flattering to any lid texture. The eyeshadow blended out well and stayed on nicely for eight hours on me.
NARS Cielo Eyeshadow (2018)
Cielo is a light, golden taupe with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic sheen. Most of the sparkles seemed to disappear by the time the product was applied and blended out on my lid, so it didn’t seem to have additional fallout during wear. The consistency was soft, smooth, and lightly creamy, which made for each application of opaque coverage but it had a few larger flecks that made it look a little patchy along the edge at certain angles–something I find happens with creamier metallic finishes that look great in person but in still photos can look less blended. It wore well for eight hours on me before it started to fade noticeably.
NARS Oscura Eyeshadow (2018)
NARS Oscura Eyeshadow (2018)
Oscura is a muted, medium-dark navy blue with cool undertones and a sparkly finish. The texture was drier and more firmly-pressed in the pan compared to the other five shades in the palette, and it yielded semi-opaque coverage on my lid. There was moderate fallout during application, and it was hard to diffuse and blend out the edge seamlessly. It could work decently as a lid shade or smudged against the lash line, but it just didn’t have the blendability for crease/transition placement. This shade lasted well for seven and a half hours on me before I noticed fading.
