Why did I consider getting the NARS American Dream Palette?
I don’t have many NARS eyeshadows in my collection but the ones that I have I’ve really enjoyed. This fall, NARS is releasing two “six-packs” :) Basically, two different eyeshadow palettes with 6 shades. I got just one of them: the NARS American Dream eyeshadow palette. This palette had the colors that appealed to me the most and this is the one I’m reviewing in this post.
Where can you get it?
I got the NARS American Dream Palette online at NARS.com
What did I find in the package?
The palette comes in a black case with the NARS word embedded on the top lid. It contains 6 different eyeshadows, 0.31oz each. I find this small package incredibly convenient to travel, or just to toss in your purse. The top lid has a mirror but the palette has no brush.
Time to try it. What did it do for me?
To be honest with you, I didn’t think I would like all the colors in this MARS American Dream palette but to my pleasant surprise I DO!!! The colors complement my brown eyes perfectly, specially Galapagos and Bali. The texture is soft and easy to work with. All but one of the shades, Bellisima, have incredible pigmentation.
NARS American Dream has proved to be extremely versatile, allowing me to use it for either day and night looks.
Here’s a description of all the colors, with some similar colors from other products for comparison:
Bellisima – A pale ivory with gold flecks. It’s not super pigmented and I find it quite sheer. This one’s the one I like the least in the palette.
Alhambra – A warm gold color with shimmer. Urban Decay Half Baked is very similar but it has more golden undertones. Milani Gold has a more yellow undertone.
Silk Road – A soft pink with gold glitter. There’s lots and lots of glitter in this shadow. MAC Expensive Pink is less pink and more golden. Milani Tickle Pink has more of a pinky base and undertones.
Galapagos – A dark chocolate brown with tiny gold glitter flecks. This is one of my favorites in this palette. When applied to the lid you can barely see the gold glitter. Perfect for nice brown smokey eyes.
Bali – A matte cool brown color. OMG so gorgeous!! From now on if I really want to deepen the crease this is my go to color.
Tzarine – A blue/gray color shadow with silver glitter. It’s a bit on the sheer side.

What is my Verdict?
This is such a gorgeous and amazing palette, I’m so glad I got it! With shades of pink, brown and gold, it’s got all the bases covered for all my pretty eyes needs. Perfect addition to my fall arsenal.
What do you think about this palette?? Yay or Nah?
