Nars have released three new limited edition palettes this summer, I picked up two of the quads. The Nars Orgasm Palette (the lighter peachy-pink palette) and the Nars Orgasm X palette (the deeper warm berry palette). Both retail at £41 each for 4.8g, available at ASOS, Look Fantastic, Harvey Nichols and House of Fraser.



The Nars Orgasm palette is inspired by their best seller Orgasm blush (a peachy pink with gold reflect).
This quad is soft and peachy toned - it includes two shimmers, one metallic and one matte.


I'd recommend this palette to people who enjoys lighter eyeshadow looks and enjoy one/two eyeshadow looks. The matte in this palette is very soft so works as a "blending" shade but you won't get much dimension from it so your looks are limited. However, if you just want a really pretty every day palette that is easy to work with and you don't have to think too much about the blend/colour combinations, then this is absolutely perfect!


The Nars Orgasm X palette is inspired by their new Orgasm X blush (a deep coral with gold sheen).
This quad is deeper in shade and has a variety of tones: pink, red, mauve and purple - it includes two shimmers, one metallic and one matte.

I'd recommend this palette to people who enjoys deeper, plum eyeshadow looks and enjoy creating more depth and. The matte in this palette is a rosy mid tone so works as a transition/blender shade however if you want extra depth, it can build up and the shimmer purple looks beautiful blended out into the outer corner. Whilst this looks like a standard "warm toned eyeshadow" palette, it does lean more rose/plum with some beautiful textures so I really do find for a four pan palette, it is quite diverse as you could go quite light and simple, warmer, or deep and smokey. So if you want a do it all deep rose palette, this is a beautiful quality and you can't really go wrong.

Do you prefer smaller palettes like quads for ease of use or larger palettes for versatility?
