I know the Wanted Eyeshadow Palette has been around for a long time now. But I just got it last June and I only got around to playing with it this month. In my defense, I was pretty busy and I didn’t do any kind of beauty blogging in June. Now though, I hope my opinion of this palette can help you if you are ever thinking about purchasing it.

The Wanted Eyeshadow Palette has the same palette format as the Loaded Eyeshadow Palette. They both have 12 eyeshadows in a mix of mattes, satins, metallics frosts and glitters. But while the latter has a neutral theme going on, the former has a more red, cranberry theme to it. Each eyeshadow weighs 0.04 oz/ 1.4 g giving the palette a total net weight of 0.48 oz.
The eyeshadows are, in general, pretty good. The mattes are soft, albeit a bit powdery The metallics are more intensely pigmented but are best used with a wet brush. They’re creamy and blend nicely on the lids except for one. The only problem I have with this palette is the shade Coconut Grove, which I’ve encountered before in the first Narsissist Eye Palette and I do remember having also some difficulty with that shade because it runs somewhat patchy.
If I were to pick between this and the Loaded Eyeshadow Palette, I will choose this right of the bat. First of all, I like the color combination of this palette more. Second, I’m just pretty sick and tired of all the neutral eyeshadow palettes going around the beauty community. Third, I can see myself using this for a long time, like a really long time. But in terms of overall shadow quality, I don’t see any difference between these two.
If you’re going to ask me which palette I’d recommend more though, I’d say pick whatever color theme you prefer. If you want some reds, choose this but if neutrals are more your thing then go ahead with the Loaded Palette.
The palette retails for $59 and is still available on the NARS website despite being a limited edition.
How do you find the eyeshadows from NARS? Any favorte, either from the single, duo range or from the dual-intensity shadows?
