NARS Modern Love palette.

Originally a Nordstrom Exclusive, the NARS Modern Love palette retails for $55 and is available on NAR's website now that Nordies has sold out of the palettes. The palette contains 6 shades;

Alhambra--a frosty peachy nude. I'm not entirely sure why this is so popular. I feel like it's pretty dupeable.
Jezebel--a brownish red.
India song--shimmery neutral brown
Tokyo--purple tinged white. This shade's practically white on my skintone
Habanera-- greyed purple. This is the prettiest shade in the palette, but it pulls mostly grey on me and the purlpe doesn't really show through.
Pandora--matte black. As far as matte blacks go, this is one of the more vibrant blacks. I'm not a big fan of black eyeshadow though as I don't really have any use for it since I prefer gel liners

All around, the colors in the palette are pretty indivually, but I can't seem to combine them in a way that makes me happy, so as a palette, I don't really like it. It's probably still worth the price if you like the colors though.


  1. Wow great swatches! I just found your blog and I love it. :)

  2. I could actually see a lot of color combinations. Like alhambra as a base, jezebel as a crease and then india song at the edges. I think the colors are lovely (though I wish tokyo had been replaced with something more pigmented, like cordura). I'll probably be buying this. :)
