Hello people!

Here I am in the middle of the night discussing make up with all of you.

Today I want to talk about this hyper successful palette from Nars called And God created the woman.

It's a Sephora and Space NK exclusive and more than a palette is a set, cos it comes with a mini size of the famous eyeshadow primer Smudge proof eyeshadow base and a brush.

I have very mixed feelings for this palette.

I bought it last year when it became available in Space Nk after being sold out for ages and all I could think when I finally got it in the flash was "what's the fuss is all about?"

This is a very nice palette you see, but with 475767 nudes/naturals palettes over there, I just didn't get it why it was looked so special to everybody.

Now, I must admit, I kinda change my opinion and I don't regret the purchase at all.

The packaging is very...Nars! Opaque solid black plastic, ready to collect every single grain of dust that comes in its proximity.

The primer is something I will never buy on its own, despite being an excellent product it's far too expensive and the hard plastic case just cause a waste of the product that cannot be collected with the applicator.

The brush, made of natural hair, has a wide shape and it's perfect to apply the powder all over the lid, if I want to do something more detailed I need usually a smaller one, anyway this one is a pretty decent brush.

The palette contains six eyeshadows, two matte and four shimmer.

I have been using all of them and now I will explain you why this palette turned out to be a win:

First, considering it's Nars we are talking about, the price of the whole set is incredibly convenient: £35 for 6 eyeshadows, a brush and a primer it's a good value for this brand.

Second, every single aspect of these eyeshadow is a dream: blending, pigmentation, long lasting effect, they are just  SO GOOD.

My favourite eyeshadow has to be Ahlambra, it's the perfect soft shimmer beige that I normally use as a wash on the lid for 99% of my looks.

Last but not least, it's small, sturdy and perfect to take away with you. I travel a lot and this little black case has been with me every single time I have been away since I got it.

The palette is available here and there will be soon a new release of a "And God created the woman part 2" which is exactly the same: don't ask please, I didn't get what does this mean too.
