Here we have another product from the stunning Guy Bourdin collection from Nars, the Crime of Passion palette which contains 3 generously sized eyeshadows, 2 face powders (1 blusher and 1 bronzer) and a limited edition lipgloss, all contained in a sturdy and travel-friendly casing with an extremely decent compact mirror.
The eyeshadow shades are Naiade – a light and shimmery vanilla; Jezebel – my personal favourite from the three which is a red-toned earth shade; and Pandora – a matte black. As you’d expect, you get the intense colour payoff famously associated with Nars shadows so you need to tread carefully with the latter two shades as you can end up applying too much, but thankfully they blend like a dream so if you do over-apply then you won’t need to start again.
Naiade is a much more gentle shade that can be used to highlight, but also works very well as a base for the other two shades to work around. All three shades work beautifully together and the whole palette creates an extremely flattering and wearable look.
The two face powder shades are Laguna bronzer – a mid brown with a hint of golden shimmer and the infamous Deep Throat blush which is a sheer but buildable peach shade which co-ordinates with the included limited edition Deep Throat gloss.
I really love the fact that this palette is a complete look; you just need to start with your foundation base and add a mascara and the rest is covered with all the included products in the palette. All products are of typical Nars quality and you get plenty for your buck, making this an extremely well-spent £35.
The Nars Crime of Passion palette appears to be sold out everywhere which might be because it’s limited edition, but it’s definitely worth checking your local Nars shop or having a mooch around online to see if you can track it down.
