My Holiday 2008 Palette Picks – NARS Holiday 2008 Palette Review and Swatches

The new, limited-edition NARS Holiday Palette ($50) contains six shimmery eyeshadows from the existing line that are too gorgeous to resist!

The shades are:

* Kilimanjaro – opalescent gold
* Bohemian Gold – iridescent copper
* Surabaya – brown sugar
* Himalayas – white with sheer pink opalescence
* Ondine – plum with gold shimmer
* Night Flight – black with cobalt blue pearls

Like all NARS eyeshadows, these eyeshadows are super pigmented, smooth and easy to work with. I also love that it contains both light and dark colors, which means you can wear it for both day and night.
