Review: Narsissist Wanted Eyeshadow Palette
Narsissist Wanted Eyeshadow Palette ($59, a $199 value) is my use-every-day-in-every-way eye palette, and I’m obsessed. The gold/red shades are very on-trend this season, creating multiple burnt brick eye looks. The formulas pack a colorful punch, the finishes range from matte to glitter (with a few shimmers thrown in for good measure). I use the shadows wet as well: dampen your finger or shadow brush, press into the eyeshadow, apply directly to the eye for an even more pigmented effect. This is how I use the darker shades as a wet eyeliner (with a damp eyeliner brush, of course), but you can also apply to your entire lid if you’re looking for more drama.
Every single color in this palette — there are 12 — is wearable. Even the shade that may seem the most “out there,” a metallic cranberry, looks more like a burnt brick shade one applied (layer with the matte reddish-brick shade for dimension and depth). The entire palette boasts neutrals, golds, coppers, and bricks that’ll bring out the natural gold flecks in your eyes. If you’re cool-toned (and your eye flecks skew grey as opposed to gold), these shades will contrast nicely with the coolness of your skin, and add warmth all winter long. If you’re warm-toned, this is the dream shadow palette. Full stop. Don’t go another day without it.
Bonus that it sells for almost a third of its actual value. And I just got a second one because I used the first palette until there was nothing left!
