NARS Give In Take Dual-Intensity Eye and Cheek Palette

NARS Give in Take Eye and Cheek Palette is part of the NARS Holiday - Sarah Moon collection and features a combination of blush and eyeshadows in the dual-intensity formula.  These can be used wet or dry - transforming from soft sheer washes of color when used to dry to more pigmented intense colors when used wet.  The eyeshadows are cooler/neutral-toned soft greys and browns.  The cheek colors can be used as blush and/or highlighter or shimmery bronzer depending on skin tone (that's how the shades appear on my medium-dark skin tone).  Scroll on for swatches.

I have never been a fan of the NARS dual-intensity formula.  I just prefer regular pigmented eyeshadows, and I hate using a damp brush on products, but that's just my personal preference.  If you are anything like me, then don't bother with this palette.  The swatches above are what the colors would look like when used dry.  The dual-intensity formula works best when used as described - use dry for a soft, semi-sheer wash of color and for more intense pigmentation, use a damp brush.  You could also layer the eyeshadows on a creamy base for more depth of color if you don't want to risk dampening the product (which is what I usually end up doing with a wet-dry formula), but I do think the complex color and shimmer in these shadows show up best when used wet/damp.  The NARS Give in Take Eye and Cheek Palette is a good pick for those who know and love the NARS dual-intensity formula.  The eyeshadow colors are good for softer makeup looks and can be built up for more intense smokey eye looks, making this a very versatile makeup palette.  The blush/highlighter/bronzer shades are soft colors that would work well with most makeup looks, and again, depending on how much color payoff you wish for, these too can be used damp or dry. 

The NARS Give in Take Eye and Cheek palette has a good amount of product, and for $69, it is a fabulous buy but only if you love the NARS dual-intensity formula.
