When I got wind of the Sephora Friends and Family there was nothing I REALLY needed. I know, that is just a shocking statement from me. However, being the beauty addict that I am I knew I needed to take advantage so I decided to browse Sephora.com (always the beginning to a terrible event for my credit card). I hadn't really had a look at the NARS line since I have had a few disappointments with them as of late( the Easy Lover lipgloss and their eye pencils) so I wansnt hip to the new holiday line.
Well well well, what do you know, I fall in love with the Arabian Nights Eye Palette, such sparkly gorgeousness. But is that enough? Lets see!
As you can see in palette is is just beyond gorgeous! Love at first sight, and if you are a long time reader you KNOW that I love me a good black smokey eye. When I swatched with my fingers, it was beautiful, dark, rich, sparkly pigment. However, when I transfered to my hand for a swatch it fell short.
That kind of dissapointed me, but you can work around this with a good sticky base and a flat brush that you pack on the color with, dont brush or sweep on. Pack, pack, pack!
Overall, I think its a great palette for the holidays, the colors are magnificent but will take a bit of finese!
