NARS And God Created the Woman Set

NARS And God Created the Woman set was for me one of my favourite purchases of 2013. It consists of a compact little palette with 6 eyeshadows (1g each), a Pro Prime smudgeproof Eyeshadow Base (2.8g) and an Eyeshadow Brush (#3).

The star of the set is of course the palette: 6 shades ranging from matte to sparkle in colours which would please any neutrals makeup lover. Many comments online were regarding the actual size of the palette which really is just a little bigger than the regular NARS blushes. However, I like how slim and tiny the palette is and as you get 1g of each shade I'm not worried of hitting pan any time soon. In the palette you get two mattes, two shimmers and two sparkly/glittery shades and a good mix of cool and warm toned colours.

Alhambra is a shimmery light pink highlighter with green and gold shimmer, Bellissima a matte medium grey with slight warm undertones, Kalahari a sparkly mix of gold and copper with slight plummy undertones (and slightly prone to fallout), Galapagos is a dark warm-toned brown with gold sparkles, Coconut Grove a dark cool-toned brown and Night Clubbing a black infused with gold and green glitter

The texture of the shadows is nice - they are well pigmented, not patchy (even if the swatches make some of the colours appear quite dry) and last well on my eyelids, especially when used over any type of primer. They are not as soft and creamy as for example my Rouge Bunny Rouge or Le Metier de Beaute eyeshadows but they are good workhorse shades and I've been reaching for this palette a lot ever since I got it back in May.

The colours that I use the most are Alhambra which is useful as an all-over shadow or highlight, Bellissima which works beautifully as a crease colour and Coconut Grove which makes for a great liner shade.

I've been also rather happy with the two added minis in the set: the primer prolongs the wear of eyeshadows and doesn't make blending a difficult task as is sometimes the case with the Urban Decay Primer Potion and the eyeshadow brush #3 (which I think is made of natural hair) comes very handy as it's good for packing the colours on the lid and for blending.

The only downside to the palette is its limited distribution: I could only find it online at SpaceNK (UK) and Sephora (US) and I also believe that it's actually not a permanent item.

I know everyone is probably sick of hearing of gift suggestions for this season but still: this would make a really great gift for anyone and especially a great "To Me... Love, Me" type of gift.


  1. I keep meaning to pick that one up so thanks for the nudge, looks like a great everyday sort of palette :)

    1. It is a great palette, a lot of variety in such a little compact. Speaking of nudges, I got the by Terry lipstick in Bare Insticnt with the recent SpaceNK event, partly also because of your review of the lipstick and so far I really like it :)

    2. I'm so glad you like the shade, always good to add a bit of By Terry to ones collection I say xx

  2. I have to agree with Clare, the colours look infinitely wearable, sadly I don't have the eyelids to wear them, but I can live vicariously through those who have :)

    1. Hi Jan, my hooded eyelids aren't the best base for showing off eyeshadow colours either but I just can't resist.

  3. Čudovita paletka, barve so res lepe in uporabne, moram dat na WL :)

    1. Živjo, Ana Ina! Težko se uprem paletam senčil in ta je res ena boljših, škoda le, da je malo težje dostopna.
