Nars 'The Happening' palette







This has been my go to palette for the past month. It consists of four eyeshadow shades and Nars' cult blush and bronzer, Orgasm and Laguna. The eyeshadows are basic enough for quick every day wear but still quite versatile, sometimes I like to add more of the darkest brown in my outer corner for a smokier look or I'll line my top and bottom lash line with the purple to bring out my brown eyes. The eyeshadows also have a lovely consistency but I find that the glittery shades can leave a tiny bit of fall out on your cheeks if not careful. I simply sweep it away with a powder brush after I've done my eye make up. The matte dark brown eyeshadow would have to be my favourite of the four, it's super creamy and easy to blend. It's also the most pigmented out of the bunch though, so a little goes a long way and work with a light hand to ensure you don't end up with panda eyes. As for the blush and bronzer, I'm sure you all know about Orgasm and Laguna. I've been using these two as a failproof cheek combo for years but it's really convenient to have them both in one palette now.

Do you have a palette you've been using religiously?

    1. The annoying thing is that there's no name or number for this eyeshadow labeled anywhere! To me it looks a lot like Nars Coconut Grove though which is sold individually, but I can't be 100% certain it's the exact same shade.

  11. that looks like a gorgeous palette. I've never been organised enough to wear 'proper' make-up, hahahahaha! I'm always just slapping on moisturiser and foundation. I can just about do brown eyeshadow. I'm so much better at nail art. For some reason my face just doesn't want to be a canvas. LOL xoxox

  21. Hi!! thanks so much for stopping by my blog :) I'm glad it lead me to yours! What a gorgeous palette color combination! I'm actually awful with makeup, especially eye-shadows. I always end up looking like a raccoon or other beat up animal of some sort. Maybe you can show us a tutorial! :)

    Have a great weekend!

  33. This seems like the perfect travel pallette. I'm not the hugest fan of Orgasm but if they have other palettes with different blushes I'd get one. Laguna is amazing though!
