NARS Summer Solstice Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Summer Solstice

NARS Summer Solstice 9-Pan Eyeshadow PaletteNARS Summer Solstice 9-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($49.00 for 0.45 oz.) is a new, limited edition warm-toned color story that featured two matte shades and seven shimmer shades (which varied from softer, pearl-like sheen to higher sparkle). Most of the eyeshadows were pigmented, blendable, and wore well, though there were a few shades that worked better with a dampened brush or a fingertip or were prone a bit of fallout either during application or during wear.

Delirium

Delirium is a light copper with moderate, warm undertones–more of a copper, orange base paired with lighter, golden pearl throughout. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, which adhered evenly and smoothly to bare skin. The texture was soft, lightly creamy but not thick or too thin, which made it easy to apply and blend out. This shade stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.

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).

Morongo

Morongo is a light, peachy gold with strong, warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had opaque color payoff in a single pass, which applied evenly to bare skin with slight fallout during the initial application. The texture was smooth, lightly emollient, and pressed firmly enough not to be a sparkle-bomb. It stayed on well for eight hours with light fallout over time.

Seven Heaven

Seven Heaven is a very light brown with a hint of warmer undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage that applied evenly and blended out well but didn’t build up from its initial coverage-level. The texture was soft, slightly powdery but not prone to fallout. This shade lasted nicely for seven and a half hours on me.

Oro Grande

Oro Grande is a medium-dark bronze with warm, more orange undertones and a metallic sheen that looked almost “melted” when applied to bare skin. The eyeshadow was richly pigmented with a soft, smooth consistency that was thin but not difficult to pick up or to blend out. It wore well for eight hours before showing signs of fading.

Seduced

Seduced is a light, golden copper with strong, warm undertones and a sparkling finish. I’d recommend using this shade with a dampened brush or fingertip, which helped the sparkles to bind better with the base color and minimized fallout. Applied dry, there was light fallout during application–both in pressing it on and blending out the edges–as the texture was a touch drier than ideal. There were signs of fading and slight fallout after eight hours of wear.

Sunstorm

Sunstorm is a light-medium, coppery red with warm undertones and flecks of pink and gold micro-sparkle. The consistency was slightly denser and a bit thick, so I’d recommend using a dampened brush to pick up product and be able to smooth it out more evenly and more easily on bare skin. It had opaque pigmentation that lasted well for eight hours before fading visibly.

Thar

Thar is a medium brown with subtle, warm reddish undertones and a pearly sheen. The eyeshadow had mostly opaque color coverage that applied well to bare skin as it looked almost “melted” after a minute. The texture was more firmly-pressed into the pan and seemed slightly thin, but it picked up well with a dry brush and had great adhesion. It wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Indian Wells

Indian Wells is a medium-dark red with strong, warm orange undertones and flecks of finer copper pearl throughout. It had a denser, more emollient consistency, so it tended to apply better with a fingertip or dampened brush. It worked decently with a dry brush really pressed and patted on, but the blending was more challenging with a dry brush. It had opaque pigmentation that lasted nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.
