Summer Unrated

NARS Summer Unrated 16-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($59.00 for 0.48 oz.) is a new, limited edition warm-toned, neutral palette that included a mix of shimmers and mattes, but it also included a range of shimmers–from sparkly and metallic to more satin-like. The pigmentation was semi-opaque to opaque, while the textures were generally blendable and easy to work with, though a few shades had fallout during application.

Isla

Isla is a light, peachy brown with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow was opaque in a single layer, and it was more prone to darkening compared to the shade’s color in the pan, even over primer. The consistency was smooth, velvety, and blendable without being prone to fallout. It wore well for eight hours on me before showing signs of fading.

  • ColourPop Eventide (LE, $4.50) is lighter, warmer (90% similar).
  • ColourPop Two Peas (PiP, $4.50) is lighter, warmer (85% similar).
  • Urban Decay Nymeria (LE, $19.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar).
  • Guerlain Electric Look #5 (LE, ) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (85% similar).

  • Urban Decay Beyond (LE, $19.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar).

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).

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).

LELimited Edition. $19.00.

Bird of Paradise

Bird of Paradise is a muted, medium-dark orange base with iridescent sparkle in pink and gold. It had a drier, thinner texture that had to be used with a heavier hand to pick up product evenly and to even get it to adhere evenly. It wore well for eight hours on me before showing signs of fading.

Formula Overview

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 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.

Taj Mahal

Taj Mahal is a medium-dark orange with warm undertones and lighter, peachy orange pearl. It had a slightly drier, somewhat powdery texture that was thin and less flattering on compared to other shades in the palette. The pigmentation was mostly opaque, and the product lasted well for seven and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Love on Fire

Love on Fire is a dark, reddish-copper that seemed to have more of a translucent base and instead was packed with various sparkle sizes, though mostly copper and then contrasting pink and gold. While there was some slip to the product itself, I would recommend using an adhesive spray or a dampened brush to apply it to avoid fallout both during application and during wear. It stayed on well for eight hours with moderate fallout over time.
