NARS Ignited Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches


Ignited

NARS Ignited NARSissist Eyeshadow Palette ($59.00 for 0.48 oz.) is a new, limited edition pink-themed palette with a mix of mattes, shimmers, and more sparkly/glittery shades. The matte shades are from the brand’s permanent range with the updated formula, while most of the shimmer/glitter eyeshadows are new/exclusive to the palette. The “glitter shades can be applied dry or with a dampened brush for stronger intensity,” with the latter being pretty necessary to utilize the palette to the fullest and have the least trouble with fallout/application. If you want to use all of your eyeshadows dry and have it be a fuss-free experience, skip this one. For those who like their pops of sparkle and regularly use an adhesive spray or tacky base, you should have better luck with this palette.

Hammamet I

Hammamet I is a soft, peachy brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. The pigmentation was good with a soft, smooth consistency that was easy to apply and work with on my skin. It lasted nicely for eight hours on me before fading slightly.

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).

St-Paul-de-Vence I

St-Paul-de-Vence I is a peachy orange with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had excellent color coverage that applied well to bare skin, and it had a very smooth finish after a few minutes on the lid, which made it stand out. The texture was soft, smooth, and easy to work with. It wore well for eight hours on me.

Light Up

Light Up is a pale, golden beige with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had semi-sheer coverage applied dry with more opaque coverage achieved with a dampened application. The eyeshadow was easier to work with and to apply to bare skin used wet, which wasn’t a total surprise, but it was manageable with a dry brush, especially if one wanted a more medium-coverage application (like using it to highlight underneath the brow bone or the inner tearduct). It stayed on well for seven hours applied dry and eight hours applied damp.

Formula Overview

$22.00/0.04 oz. – $550.00 Per Ounce

The formula “can be applied dry or with a dampened brush for stronger intensity.” It is a very glittery formula, and naturally, it performed significantly better when used with a dampened brush or an adhesive base. Applied dry, they were typically sheer to semi-sheer with light to moderate fallout when blended out on my lid. They lasted between five and seven hours with light to moderate fallout. Applied wet, they were typically semi-opaque to opaque with minimal fallout when blended out and minimal to slight fallout during wear (about eight hours). The consistency was soft, slightly drier/chunkier, but they the base colors were blendable and easy enough to use. I did find that they applied decently over primer when applied dry compared to on bare skin.

Atomic

Atomic is a light, peachy pink with warm undertones and a sparkling, glittery finish. When I applied it dry, it appeared warmer and more of a true-peach, whereas dampened application yielded a brighter, lighter, and pinker color overall. The texture was soft to the touch but felt more loosely-pressed and was more prone to fallout when used dry on the lid. It had semi-sheer, somewhat buildable pigmentation used dry and opaque coverage that adhered more evenly and sat better on my lid when used with a dampened brush. It lasted for six hours dry (with fallout) and eight hours wet.

Sophia

Sophia is a muted, medium brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was a smidgen powdery in the pan, but it applied evenly without sheering out too readily, and I had no trouble blending out the edges. It had rich color coverage that wore well for eight hours on me.

Supernova

Supernova is a light-medium coral with strong, warm orange undertones and a slightly cooler, pinker sheen. The consistency was soft, smooth, and blendable with a lightly creamy feel to it that helped it adhere well to bare skin. It had intense pigmentation that stayed on nicely for eight hours on me.

In Heat

In Heat is a soft, rosy mauve with warmer undertones and a lot of lighter pink and silver sparkle and micro-glitter. This was one of the more glitter-packed shades in the palette, so there was some fallout when I used it dry on my lid, though it seemed to build up and could be manageable on more normal-to-oily lids (if you’re drier, a primer or adhesive spray is going to be your best bet). The texture was soft to the touch with a dryness, likely present due to how it didn’t feel as firmly pressed/bound together compared to a typical shimmer eyeshadow. It lasted for seven hours with fallout used dry and closer to eight hours with minimal fallout when used with a dampened brush.

Ignition

Ignition is a soft, pinky-plum with warmer undertones and cooler pink pearl and larger sparkle. It had medium to semi-opaque pigmentation that applied well with a dry brush, as long as I pressed and patted it on my lid first, and then buffed and fluffed along the edges. With a dampened brush, it had rich coverage that adhered and went on even better. It wore well for eight hours both wet and dry, though the dampened application had minimal fallout over time.

Fuse

Fuse is a light-medium, plummy brown base with flecks of lavender, violet, and gold sparkle. It was rather glittery, so there was fallout when I tried using it with a dry brush, though the pigmentation was more medium to semi-opaque. If I used it with a dampened brush, it was more opaque and had a smoother, more even application without fallout. The eyeshadow stayed on well for six and a half hours with some fallout when applied dry and better at eight hours with minimal fallout when applied with a dampened brush.

Pointe Noire

Pointe Noir is a deep, pinky-plum with subtle, warm undertones and gold and plum sparkle. This shade is in the permanent range (Hardwired Eyeshadow), though I found the version in the palette to pull warmer/redder and had a smoother, denser consistency (didn’t feel like the other glittery/sparkly shades). It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer when applied dry, though a wet application would help it appear a bit more metallic but wasn’t necessary for opacity. It stayed on well for eight hours with very little fallout over time.
