Nars American Dream Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

My final Nars Artist Palette to review is the American Dream palette.  Of all the palettes I purchased (or got Mr C to purchase!) this was the one I was the most excited about getting in the post.  

Nars American Dream Eyeshadow Palette Review 1

The palette is quite shimmery with the exception of Bali which is a neutral matte brown. But more about the shade later. 

I don’t like the Nars rubber, but who does? The older these palettes get (I have a Nars drawer so trust me on this) the worse the sticky thing gets on the cases.

The shades are:

Bellisima – A shimmer white with glitter, a bit gritty

Alhambra (I just bought the duo before hand, annoyingly!) – a peachy shimmer, also grittier in this palette then in my duo

Silk Road – A pinky sheer shadow once again with gritty glitter!

Galapagos – I own this already, its a rich warm brown with gold flecks

Bali – Cool toned matte brown

Tzarine – Grey with multi shimmers, really like this

The top 3 eyeshadows were nice but kinda gritty!  They’re also on the more sheer side than I expect for Nars. 

The bottom 3 shades are lovely; the silvery grey and brown work so nicely together, it’s really lovely. 

Swatch:

I stand by the above swatch in the sense that I wasn’t knocked out by the pigmentation. I don’t know why, the last few palettes I have bought have consistently been less pigmented than earlier palettes.

Verdict:

This is my favourite of all the palettes I got from Nars, although I still don’t think the pigmentation is a knock out, it’s still a stunning palette to own and has lots of useful shades as long as you can live with shimmer.
