NARS St Germain des Pres Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

St Germain des Pres

NARS St Germain des Pres 6-Pan Eyeshadow PaletteNARS St Germain des Pres 6-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($49.00 for 0.36 oz.) is a new, limited edition six-pan palette that included three shimmery shades and three matte shades. I think the palette will work best for someone who typically wears an eyeshadow primer, prefers more buildable coverage with their mattes, and doesn’t mind a bit of fallout during application. It was the kind of performance that felt more workable once I started using it, even though there were definitely some issues.

Envie

Envie is a light-medium, warmer taupe-brown with a sparkling, metallic finish. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, which applied evenly to bare skin and blended out with minimal fallout. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy, and moderately dense without being too thick or too firmly pressed into the pan. It wore well for eight hours before fading visibly.

Formula Overview

$19.00/0.04 oz. – $475.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have “rich, high-impact color” that is “lightweight” and has “increased blendability.” Like most larger ranges, there are winners and losers, and some of how they perform can be related to the type of finish. The mattes are soft, slightly dusty in the pans (or not at all) with medium to opaque, often buildable, color coverage. The satin and metallics tend to be smoother, more blendable, and more pigmented with less effort; NARS does the these lower shimmer finishes particularly well, which just looks “melted” on the skin as they lay down so smoothly and have a great shine.

Most shades applied better on my lid than swatched on my arm, which has been something seen across NARS’ eyeshadows for years and didn’t change with the recent update to their powder eyeshadow formula. On average, they lasted between seven and nine hours on me without primer. They did apply well over primer and stayed on well for 14 hours with minimal fading.

Worth noting: the updated formula and packaging resulted in a product decrease from 0.07 oz. per pan to 0.04 oz. The single eyeshadows received a more noticeable price drop (from $24 to $19) but the duo eyeshadows could be priced better (from $36 to $35).

Joie

Joie is a very light, peachy gold with strong, warm orange undertones and a pearl finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a soft, thinner texture that wasn’t dry, thankfully, but it tended to look more faded and satin-like when applied. The color showed signs of fading after seven hours of wear.

Rue de Tournon

Rue de Tournon is a medium-dark gold with moderate, warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The texture was more loosely-pressed, so I’d recommend using a lighter hand to avoid fallout during application along with pressing and patting the color into place, which achieved more even coverage. It had opaque pigmentation that wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

L’Ephemere

L’Ephemere is a medium-dark, coppery-brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a slightly firmer, drier texture that was best applied in layers and built up. It’s the kind of texture that ended up being fairly blendable but really works best for someone who likes to build up their pigment. It lasted well for eight hours before fading visibly.

Nostalgie

Nostalgie is a medium, plummy brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was soft, blendable, and lightly powdery with a bit of thinness present. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that adhered evenly and stayed on well for seven and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Liberation

Liberation is a deep, almost plum-tinged, brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer pigmentation that could be built up to semi-opaque coverage with two to three layers. The consistency was soft, blendable but somewhat powdery and a little on the drier side, so there was fallout during application. I’d recommend using this over an eyeshadow primer, which helped the product adhere more evenly and minimized some of the fallout. It wore decently for seven and a half hours before fading a bit.
