NARS x Man Ray Love Game Eyeshadow Palette Review, Photos, Swatches

Love Game

NARS Love Game Man Ray Eyeshadow Palette (£45.00 for 0.60 oz.) is a new, limited edition eyeshadow palette exclusively for international retailers (non-US). It’s supposed to launch officially today, and I’ve spotted it on SpaceNK (UK) thus far. There were two shades in the palette that were disappointing, though one was more workable than the other; the rest were quite good and one of NARS’ better eyeshadow palette offerings. I definitely wish this one was making its way to the US, too!

Lady Killer

Lady Killer is a light beige with warm, yellow undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer with a soft, smooth consistency that wasn’t powdery but had more substance to it, which helped it apply well to bare skin without losing its coverage. This shade stayed on well for seven and a half hours.

Rendezvous

Rendezvous is a soft, light-medium gold with warm, orange undertones and a pearl finish. It had excellent color payoff that applied evenly to the lid and blended out nicely. The texture was smooth and soft without kicking up excess product in the pan. The eyeshadow started to fade on me after eight hours of wear.

Dominant

Dominant is a medium brown with warm, orange undertones and a matte finish. It had good color coverage with a soft, lightly powdery texture that was a bit more substantial, so it adhered well to bare skin but blended out nicely still. The color started to fade on me after eight hours of wear.

Submissive

Submissive is a medium-dark khaki green with warm, olive undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer pigmentation that was buildable to semi-opaque coverage with two to three layers. The consistency was powdery and prone to sheering out, so it was troublesome to build up the coverage as there was a moderate amount of fallout. The eyeshadow wore well for seven and a half hours on me.

Your Move

Your Move is a muted, light-medium brown with warm, yellow undertones and a matte finish. The pigmentation was nearly opaque in a single layer, and it was buildable to full coverage with just a touch more patted on top. The eyeshadow felt soft, smooth, and silky with very little powderiness in the pan. It lasted for eight hours before fading noticeably on me.

Tryst

Tryst is a bright, medium gold with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The texture was denser and more cream-like, and a little went a long way as it was incredibly pigmented. I found a flat, synthetic brush worked best for applying the eyeshadow evenly to bare skin rather than a fluffier brush. On me, it started to crease after eight and a half hours of wear.

Dirty Talk

Dirty Talk is a light-medium gold with soft, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The consistency was smooth, almost cream-like, and yielded rich, opaque coverage in a single layer that blended out beautifully. It wore well for eight hours before creasing faintly.

Long Game

Long Game is a blackened navy blue with cool undertones and a fine, smattering of shimmer. It had semi-sheer coverage that was buildable to medium coverage, but the texture was drier and looser, so it was prone to sheering out and had a lot of fallout when I attempted to build it up. The color wore well for seven and a half hours on me.

Blind Date

Blind Date is a deep plum with warm undertones and a satin shimmer. It had good color payoff that was buildable to full coverage. The texture was soft, slightly powdery in the pan, but it was blendable and easy to work with (which was a bit surprising given NARS’ track record). On me, it lasted for eight hours.
