NARS Long Hot Summer Eyeshadow Palette review

NARS Long Hot Summer Eyeshadow Palette


The Long Hot Summer Eyeshadow Palette comes in NARS’ signature black rubber compact and is about 3 3/4 inches by 2 inches, just like the Spring 2015 eyeshadow palettes. On the inside is a mirror with 6 eyeshadows, 4 of which are new colors. Each shadow contains 0.03 oz / 1 g of product, which is a little less than half of a regular single eyeshadow.

Long Hot Summer I, a new color, is a light cream with shimmer
.

Long Hot Summer II, another new color, is a frosty neutral taupe
.

Bellissima II is a matte cool grey brown with small flecks of shimmer.

Long Hot Summer III, the third new color, is a metallic cooper with shimmer.

Long Hot Summer IV, the final new color, is a metallic warm brown with shimmer.

Bengali is a matte rich chocolate brown.

The shadows applied with a soft, buttery texture and great blendability, especially Long Hot Summer II. They were all highly pigmented, with the exception of Bellissima II, which required a bit of layering.

The colors also complemented each other very well and I loved their versatility. With light, medium and dark colors and different finishes in one compact, I was able to use them to highlight, contour, as eyeliner and on brows.
