NARS SKIN DEEP EYE PALETTE – A must have neutral eyeshadow palette for every occasion


This is NARS newest Limited Edition Palette called the “Skin Deep Eye Palette“.


A brand that needs no introduction, NARS is a definitive cult classic, remaining at the forefront of the makeup world.

NARS quickly gained a permanent place in my heart after trying the first product from their range a few years ago – the blush in the popular shade “Orgasm”. NARS Skin Deep Eye Palette is no exception, containing all you need to master subtle neutral looks to mysterious smoky eyes.

When I first saw the NARS Skin Deep Eye Palette online I knew I had to get it.

This eyeshadow palette includes mattes, shimmers and metallics a versatile spectrum of shades that you can customise for any occasion. This palette is made to be a “multi-use palette containing 12 neutral shades to define, line, and highlight eyes and brows“.

The shades may seem boring but I’m all about neutral earthy eyeshadows.  The neutral shades in this palette will easy take your makeup looks from day to night.

I brought this palette on a mini vacay with my family and I used it for multiple makeup looks. The packaging is luxorious and I love the fact that it has a nice big mirror which makes it great for travel. It’s also super sleek and made from a sturdy plastic so it is quite durable. The names of the shadows are found at the back of the palette.

The intensely pigmented formula delivers incredible payoff and blends beautifully. The shades are buttery, easy to use and blend very well. The formula contains NARS’ Pigment Powder Suspension technology for a maximum impact, feather-light finish that blends with ease.

The shades coordinates well with each other. The shimmers have a subtle fine texture and not too thick or dense, so they layer well with the mattes in the palette.

NARS shadow quality is really top notch, as it should be considering this higher price point you are paying for their products. I really truly think their shadows are worth the money because you can just feel the amazing quality and see the intense pigment of their shadows.

I really love this eyeshadow palette. I think I could probably find similar colors in my existing stash but I love the overall look and feel of this one, it’s easy to wear and I love the pigment.

Looking at the compact straight out of the box I thought it would be a little boring and too dark but it turned out to be very wearable for me! Skin Deep, is one of those palettes that’s perfectly curated. There’s a matte highlighter/ base shade, a few transition options and shimmery pop colours

This palette will suit a wide range of skin tones and it will show up even on deeper skin tones.

How to wear NARS Skin Deep Eye Palette?

Each of the stunning shadows look gorgeous when worn alone or can be blended together. The versatile formula can be used as an eyeshadow or liner, applied wet or dry.

The 4 larger pans are the basic shades that I use the most for a variety of different things such as eye shadow, brows and even face contouring if you want to get a bit creative. The lightest yellow toned shade is the perfect lid priming shade and exact same color as my skintone, it doesn’t show up as much on the swatch (the color at the bottom on the picture bellow). You can even use the top four shades as face powders.

These multipurpose eyeshadows are flattering for any age and skin tone. It’s definitely a palette that you can wear every day and also on a night out.

In person I think this palette it’s even more beautiful and I don’t think you will be disappointed!

Do you need this eyeshadow palette?

If you already have a bunch of palettes, you probably won’t need NARS Skin Deep Eye Palette. But I can’t hide the fact that it’s one of the best eyeshadow palettes i’ve seen in quite some time with really good quality & value for money. AND it’s totally wearable for all skin tones, including the deeper complexions which is wonderful.
