NARS Voyageur Eyeshadow Palette in Quartz (Sephora Exclusive)

I just have some swatches for you today. I didn’t have the best experience with the NARS Quad Eyeshadow in Taj Mahal, but 4 of the 6 eyeshadows in this palette remind me of the NARS single eyeshadows. So I’m hopieful this will work out just fine.

I knew when I purchased this palette that I was making a compromise with the two topper shades (top left and top middle shades). I don’t really enjoy them, but jordan (top middle shade) does have some base pigment. So I’m crossing my fingers that it will work decently for me. Unfortunately it is rare for me to like an entire palette, but I do enjoy them since they typically take the guesswork out of coordinating colors.

A New Fun-Sized Eyeshadow Palette from Violet Voss (Wild Dahlia)

I’ve heard a lot of good things about this brand, but this is my first time giving Violet Voss a try. This small palette caught my eye as I was on the hunt for green eyeshadows. I’ve only used four shades in this 10-pan palette so far, but I wanted to go ahead and share swatches. I’m pretty sure it was just released in the last few days, so hopefully this is helpful for those interested.

What’s Old at the Drugstore (L’Oreal Infallible 24HR Eye Shadow in Bronzed Taupe)

The L’oreal Infallible Eyeshadows were definitely a cult classic from the drugstore at one point in time. Occasionally, I’ll hear someone mention the shade amber rush, but for the most part, they don’t come up too often. I used to really love the shade bronzed taupe back when I was newer to eyeshadow. I started to wonder if I would still feel the same about it now that I’ve been exposed to so many other formulas. I originally purchased this eyeshadow on the recommendation of Emily Noel on YouTube, who is also the inspiration for these “What’s Old at X” type of posts.

NARS Quad Eyeshadow in Taj Mahal (Swatches)

This is a newly released quad from NARS inspired by one of their cult classic blushes. Taj Mahal blush is described as a “burnished orange with golden shimmer.” NARS now has 8 color variations of these quads, so there are other options if this one doesn’t speak to you. The brand promises high impact color in one swipe, but that has not been my experience with the Taj Mahal Quad. Let’s talk about it.
